Water Heater should be on at your arrival, if not, call either Roberto or Eugenio (phones at the last page) for instructions. Some times, when the heater lights up, a smell of gas can be sensed for a short period of time. It's gas that has already burned, is not flammable. You only need to open the windows to refresh. The heater has been checked and has no leaks.
Drinking Water - What we've found works best is that each guest buys the gallons of bottled water they need.
DISH TV: Turn on tv on channel 4, turn on Dish Device.
Laundry: You'll find one about 120ft down Londres street against the traffic. It is on Londres 235. Ph(phone number hidden) Please note the street signs are mistaken on our corner.
Doorman works at office times (daytime) and should help you with door, elevator, lighting of the main hall, etc. He can also take out your garbage and will surely appreciate a tip. His name is Felipe.

The Stove works by approaching a lighter or match to it.
Under the stove you'll find kitchen utensils, as well as over the refrigerators.
There is a big freezer on the left side turned off. The Refrigerator on the right has a freezer and should work to cold your beers and food.
The Maid Service is provided before your arrival. She can come at your convenience for $20.00 usd or $250 MX. Please call us to arrange it.
Supermarket: There is no big supermarket nearby, but plentiful of convenience & groceries stores. If you need more than an Oxxo, or 7 Eleven (both on the corners nearby). If a supermarket is needed, go to Sumesa on the corner of Oaxaca and Salamanca streets. It's about 6 blocks walking on Sevilla Street, which changes its name to Salamanca after crossing Chapultepec Street. You are A, Sumesa is B.
Amsterdam street, as well as Michoacán &Tamaulipas, are the main streets of La Condesa. It used to be a horse race track; that explains its round shape.
Alvaro Obregón, Colima, Orizaba, the main streets of Colonia Roma.
These two neighborhoods are divided by Avenida Insurgentes, which is marked as MX-85, since it's the “Panamerican Highway", & crosses the city North to South.
You are in Zona Rosa. Its famous for its night life, that is mostly LSBG now days. On daytime, it has a great Antiques Market (Bazar del Angel) on Londres Street.
Museums & Tours:
Don't miss walking to Reforma where you can walk to the Museo de Antropología (15 min walk).
There's also Museo Rufino Tamayo, and Museo de Arte Moderno.
In Reforma you can take the Turibus, which will take you to many interesting sites.
Also from Reforma, to the opposite direction, you can get to the Centro Histórico (Downtown). Don't miss the Museo del Templo Mayor, Bellas Artes Museum, etc-
To the other side, not to Reforma but to and across Chapultepec Avenue, walking in straight line you will get to Glorieta de las Cibeles, which is in the heart of the Colonia Roma and adjacent to Colonia Condesa. Both are full with great restaurants and cosmopolitan life with shopping, galleries, parks, and more.
I highly recommend El Cardenal, on the Centro Histórico. Has a couple of branches, one at the Hilton hotel and the original at 23 Palma Street.
Nearby the condo you can find Casa Bell, a beautiful garden and traditional restaurant. Is on Praga Street one block before Reforma.
There's a Vegetarian called Yug, at Varsovia Street 3. It's been around since 1963, and it has been highly recommended by other guests.
Other guests also enjoyed walking to Fuente de la Cibeles to have a beer at the “Cervecería de Barrio",as well as many other restaurants in Condesa: Azul Condesa, La Gloria, Specia.
And the incredible newer ones in Colonia Roma: Maximo Bistrot, Rosseta, Sobrinos, and the Thai-Japanese Mog. Most of them are on or very near from Alvaro Obregon Av. Refer to the map or their websites for reservations. You won't be disappointed.
We thank you again for staying with us.
