The Duplex is the perfect retreat from Mexico City's vibrant if frenetic energy -- it is beautiful, quiet and wonderfully located. And Juan Carlos is the perfect host, attentive to every need and a most interesting person to know. Ask him about the photographs on the walls. You will no doubt make your own discoveries -- but do not miss Señora Joanna's breakfast quesadillas in the pedestrian Calle Motolinia nor the experience of selecting pastries at Ideal. And if you have a funny tummy, the chicken soup "para llevar" at the Palacio around the corner on Madero is as soothing as it's delicious. Three last words about The Duplex -- book it now!
Juan Carlos and the apartment were both fantastic! The location can't be beat- this was our first trip to Mexico City (but by no means our last!) and this put us exactly where we wanted to be. The apartment itself was fantastic - clean, comfortable, and aesthetic. Highly recommended! Thanks, Juan Carlos.
JC is a great host: Really friendly, helpful and open-minded!
The apartment is located in the middle of the Centro Historico which made it possible to reach nearly all sights within 5mins walking distance. Furhtermore, it is extremely secure!
I would highly recommend to stay at JC's place when coming to Mexico City!
Juan Carlos' apartment, The Duplex, is a quiet haven in a fantastic part of Centro-Historico in Mexico City.
We had four people staying and did not find it crowded but did need to juggle the bathroom timing.The kitchen worked well for breakfast and we ate at local cafe/restaurants.
The Duplex was spotless,bedding/towels excellent and the wi-fi connection fast and seamless.
For four people it would have been better with 2 sets of keys.
Overall the apartment was an integral part of a thoroughly enjoyable time in Centro Historico.
Wow is all I can say. Incredible apartment in the city center. A few blocks from the Zocalo and the Belles Artes museum. 3 blocks from the metro. Incredibly secure, the pictures are really what the place looks like. There is a cafe next door and a OXXO in case you need anything.
We stayed 9 days and the apartment was a cool pleasant escape from the wildness of the city that was right outside. Juan Carlos was readily available for anything, but we had no problems. 100% recommended, without doubt.
Wow es todo que puedo decir. Un apartamento incredible en el centro de la ciudad. Unas pocas cuadras del Zocalo y el museo de belles artes. 3 cuadras del metro. Muy seguro, los fotos son realmente lo que el apartamento se parece. Hay un cafe y OXXO a lado del apartamento.
Pasamos 9 dias alla y el apartamento y era un buen escape agradable de la ciudad loca afuera. Juan Carlos era disponible para cualquier cosa necesitamos, pero no había ningún problema. Lo recomiendo 100%, sin duda.
What an absolutely wonderful place in the best location. We had a fabulous stay! Eager to return. Juan Carlos is a gem and a gentleman! Thank you
Beautifully appointed apartment and very helpful host. This is a great location for walking around the centre.
We had the best time staying at Juan's. Great and fun neighborhood. Juan was the best and made sure were able to get off to a great start on our trip. The apartment was comfortable and clean. We really have no complaints.
Juan Carlos is a great host. Always willing to help you out and suggesting great addresses in the city. He is always available at any time during the day.
The apartment is very well located and in the heart of bustling Mexico City . Walking distance from the Zocalo and other historical landmarks . The culinary scene is also developing in the centro historico. A little coffee shop outside the building is quite convenient - coffee is good. Great bakeries (panaderias) closeby such as the historical Ideal.
The duplex is a rare pearl in Centro historico of Mexico City. It is located within a historical building called La Borda. It's very big and comfortable. There is a kitchen if you want to cook , it is adequate .
A very convenient stay in the city, I will definitely go back when in Mexico city either for business of vacation !
A minute from the hustle and bustle of Calle Madero you enter the massive door into a tranquil courtyard. The duplex is beautiful! Three floor to ceiling windows (with heavy drapes ) open onto sweet balconies. The building is period but the interior is modern , think New York loft! Very cool! The photographs do not do it justice. Very well equipped with high quality linens, dishes etc and a dreamily comfortable bed! The massive living room boasts a super comfortable sofa and good lighting. Juan Carlos is a delight, a most genial host! We have already passed info along to everyone we meet who asks about our stay because we wholeheartedly recommend The Duplex! We will definitely return!
