About this listing
Casa Hipodromo is a small B&B in the heart of Condesa. We seek to give our guests a warm and rich experience. With our extensive list of tips, we want our guests to experience Mexico City like a local.
This is an adult only B&B, unless the entire house is booked as a whole.
The room on this listing shares the bathroom with TWO other bedrooms.
The house has a large living spaces, kitchen and a large rooftop with hammocks and lots of plants, perfect for having breakfast or taking some sun. All of it for your use.
Condesa is one of the best neighborhoods in the city. It's a turn of the century Bohemian-Chic pedestrian area. There are tons of cafes, restaurants, stores and pretty people with dogs.
There are two small parks in the neighborhood Parque España and Parque México. Then we have Chapultepec which is our little Central Park. Perfect for long walks/runs and visiting the museums (Anthropology Museum, Tamayo Museum and Museum of Modern Art, all within walking distance from one another). You can also visit the Castle of Chapultepec which, by the way, it's the only castle built in Latin-america that was actually inhabited by monarchs. It was built in the 1860´s while Mexico was briefly ruled by The House of Habsburg, definitely a must visit site.
The neighborhood is very central and very well connected. You can get anywhere by bicycle or subway.
We have two subway lines near by. It's a 10 minute walk to Chapultepec, on the pink line, and a 15 minute walk to Patriotismo which is the brown line.
The Metrobus is also near by, the closest stop is on Insurgentes and Campeche.
The best way to get around the city is on the city's bike share program. As a tourist, you may buy a 7 day ((phone number hidden)) or 24 ($90) hour pass.
