French citizen / independent consultant living in Mexico City. Fluent in French, Spanish, English and Italian.
I live only 2 blocks away and can be reached at anytime.

Fully equipped kitchen with some of key ingredientes ready for use. Two coffee machines (and coffee!), orange juice maker and more.

Guest Access

Full access - no one lives here. There is also a terrace on the other mirror facing building for you to use.

Interaction with Guests

Very active - both via text, email before and during the stay. I also tend to personally greet you whenever possible (outside office hours) and give my personal tips.

The Neighborhood

NOTE: See my guidebook for all local tips and favourites.
it's green, quiet, walkable, a lot of nice places to eat and very practical as everything is close by: food stores, market, supermarket, pastry shops, metro stations to name only a few. I actually live 2 blocks away

8 minutes walk to the metro station. There's a taxi stand just in front and also a fun place to go to Roma and close to the centre with an electric bus.
o A very pleasant neighbourhood with a lot of green spaces and ideal for walks.
o 3 minutes walk to the PARQUE ESPANA and 10 minutes to the PARQUE MEXICO
o One of the best "on wheel market" (PACHUCA) every Tuesday 2 blocks away
o Organic shop, supermarket, butcher, corner shop and local cafes within 1 km radius
o Main Metro stations (SEVILLA, INSURGENTES, CHAPULTEPEC) 10 minutes away
o Private TAXIs (SITIO) available across the street
o Free Cycle scheme (ECO BICI) on the street corner along with bike rentals some blocks down.

Getting Around

To reach the flat from the airport or bus stations, just take an "authorised taxi" which will be around 200 pesos and say you're going to ROMA NORTE. You tell the taxi driver it is "una cerrada sobre GUADALAJARA, entre DURANGO y COLIMA justo en frente de un sitio de taxi"

The area is perfect for public transport - the PINK line (Chapultepec and Sevilla stops) are 7 minutes away walking.

Other Things to Note

On some occasions, guests have complained about the noise upstairs from my neighbour. I cannot do much about it as she wakes up early and the isolation is at times disturbing. I leave earplugs just in case it disturbs some others.
There are also on occasions water supply shortage.

House Rules

Because of the quietness and close vicinity of other flat owners, please refrain from having parties or loud music beyond decent hours and levels.
o Do not hang any clothes / towels over the balcony.

o Trash needs to be split between ORGANIC and NON Organic - you are provided with two bins, a small and bigger one. Both are to be left in bins with the doorman.

o Smoking is permitted only on the balcony.

o Take particular care with the traditional tiles from Oaxaca as they are very porous and stains come immediately

o Particular care should be taken with towels when using special creams or cleaning products as it often stains them and need to be replaced.
