Interaction with Guests

As little or as much as they want.

The Neighborhood

Mexico City's historic center, declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, is chockfull of fascinating museums, Aztec and colonial architectural treasures, busy shopping streets, markets and plazas where you feel the throbbing pulse of this great megalopolis - and all just a few steps away from the apartment.

Getting around

The subway is around the corner. So are stops for major public bus lines, incl. the hop-on hop-off turibus. And Petra is happy to lend you her bike - for a small fee.

  • Petra is running a well-oiled machine! She was awaiting my arrival, she explained everything I needed to know and made me very welcome. The room was super-clean, as was my bathroom. There was also the added bonus of clean towels,a bowl of fresh fruit and a little coffee maker.

    When I needed details about getting around the city, what restaurants are best and going to see the pyramids she was very knowledgeable and that made it a very relaxed experience.

    Such great value and right in the part of town you want to be in. I can recommend Petra's place to fact I'm already booked in for my next visit!

  • This was a great, charming room in a great location and building. And Petra was a great host, full of recommendations, generous with her time, and is a wealth of information about el centro and the city in general. Highly recommend the room. And hope to be back!

  • Petra's Place is wonderful...I spent my last few days in Mexico there and was disappointed i couldn't stay longer. It's small but so comfortable and with everything you could possibly need, including the fact that it's cleaned every day. As for the location, it's incredible, it would be harder to find
    a more central place in the historico centro. And as much as i enjoyed the apartment, my favourite part was meeting Petra. She is warm and welcoming offering you invaluable information and completes the perfect experience.

  • Petra was a really lovely host, very accomodating and understanding and friendly too. The location is just amazing. It's walking distance to all the historic sites and great restaurants too. Everything in the apartment is well organized and there's a fan if you get too hot :) Thanks again for everything!

  • Petra was an excellent host. The independent bedroom is a beautiful place, near to Madero street, Cafe de Tacuba, Allende subway station, Bellas Artes Palace and the Zocalo square. I really like this little and pretty place, It was great!. I recommend it! - Mi primera vez en México y no pude elegir un mejor lugar para hospedarme. La habitación de Petra es acogedora y muy cerca a todo. Es independiente y a pocos pasos de Calle Madero, Café de Tacuba, Estación de Metro Allende, Palacio de Bellas Artes y el Zócalo. Me gustó y lo recomiendo!

  • I had an amazing time staying at Petra's place. The cozy little room is off the kitchen of a penthouse apartment and has its own bathroom and private entrance. The historic building where it is located is gorgeous. It is also such a luxury to step out of the building and be only steps from Madero street and blocks from the Zocalo, not to mention all the famous cantinas in the area. Petra was an enormously gracious and solicitous hostess and easy to communicate with before, during and after my stay. I consider myself fortunate to have found her place, and I truly hope I will be able to stay there again soon.
