The photographs have been updated to reflect the current condition of the apartment. - 12, May, 2012

Comfy Apartment smack in the middle the Colonia Condesa, one of the hippest neighborhoods in Mexico City. A short 10 minute walk from the museums in the Bosque de Chapultepec (Museo de Arte Moderno, Museo Tamayo, Castillo de Chapultepec, etc.), as well as from the Colonia Roma. A 5 minute walk from El Parque Mexico.

The apartment has one Queen size bed, and one double. Both are real beds.

The best supermarket in the neighborhood is across the street open from 7am-11pm, a great cheese shop bellow on the corner as well as a tasty bakery (Try the Carrot Cake or the Pear Tart). There is dry cleaning and laundry half a block away.

Transportation

The apartment is 4 blocks away from the Juanacatlan subway stop and 6 from the Chapultepec stop. Both stations are on the same transit line that takes you downtown to the Centro Historico. Transit to other subway lines is on station away at Tacubaya station, or 4 stations to Salto del Agua.

Ecobici bike service station located across the street.

If you have a car, you can park it at my house, its a 10 minute walk.

  • The location is the best part about this place! Colonia Condeza is lovely and there are plenty of bars and cafes around to keep you entertained. There's also a supermarket across the street which can get a bit loud at night but is handy if you like to cook at home. Morgana was very professional and met all of our expectations.

    Thanks Morgana!

  • Morgana's place was nice and functional and located in a good area.

  • This apartment is fantastic for a couple. It's location is unbeatable as it literally has a supermarket in-front, a great cheese and meat store on the corner, and an organic market a couple of blocks away. It is in walking distance from Parque Mexico, España, and Chapultepec. We found it easy to walk almost everywhere via tree lined streets from La Condesa to La Roma, to Chapultepec.
    The apartment is very clean, with a small, yet organized kitchen, and two bedrooms, one with fantastic morning light.

  • Morgana and her husband Omar could not have been more attentive. It tooks us nearly two hours to get through immigration/customs - and my phone wasn't working so I couldn't call to warn them - but Omar was waiting for us at the apartment when we got there - he'd had to wait quite a while!

    The apartment is essentially as looks in the pictures - maybe a tad smaller - but great for my two children and I. Enough space for everyone to be in their own space rather than on top of each other.

    The kitchen is small but fully operable - four burner stove, toaster over and a blender (my kids are big fans of smoothies!) The bed in the interior bedroom is, in my opinion, more comfortable (softer)

    To the extent there is a complaint, the water pressure in the shower was not fabulous - though Omar told us it takes forever for the water to get hot (which I had read in previous reviews) and that the pressure was not very good. I don't view that as their fault - kind of is what it is.

    The grocery store (Superama) is right across the street and open until 11:30 -even on Sunday (the evening we arrived) so you can always pick something up. There is a fruit stand right outside the door every day - taco/torta stands across the street.... All right out the front door.

    Morgana was very quickly responsive when I contacted her about a couple of issues. She was a great host for my maiden stay with Air B and B!

  • Morgana's place was great, and she was extremely easy and helpful to deal with. Clean, spacious, and perfect location. We had a wonderful time. Our only issue was a drain in the middle of the bathroom that sometimes gave off an unpleasant sewage smell, but this wasn't a huge problem.

  • We had a great time in Mexico City. Morgana's apartment is excellently situated, close to nice restaurants, parks and the subway. Everything in the apartment was as advertised and the supermarket across the road was really convenient.
    It's a vibrant and lively neighbourhood, and also a very secure one.
    Thanks for everything Morgana.

  • My friend Michael and I stayed in Morgana's apartment and found that it completely suited our needs. It was clean, well furnished and gets excellent light throughout the day. The neighborhood is very beautiful and felt extremely safe at all hours. It is also conveniently located across the street from a supermarket, so we were able to cook the majority of our breakfasts. It is also a short 5-10 minute walk from the subway, which we used for the majority of our daytime trips as it is very cheap and fast.

    Morgana was also very responsive to a couple of questions we had regarding the city, after we had arrived. Key pickup was very smooth as well. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone interested in visiting Mexico City!

  • Great place in La Condesa. Morgana was very helpful and available to answer questions, etc. I will probably stay there again when I head back if its available. Thanks!

  • Our stay at Morgana's place was just great. Location couldn't be better, a big store crossing the street, walking distance to Chapultepec and reforma and very good food places right in front of the building. I specially recommend the fruit stand right in front of the building, and a very very good tortas place crossing the street.

    Morgana was very nice with us and everything worked just well. Hot water in the shower is a bit tricky but it always work well at the end. The secret: open the hot water tap just a bit until it gets war enough .
