Smoking is allowed, but we prefer to do so in the terrace.
We had a wonderful time in Mexico staying at Petra's place. It was centrally located, and we felt so at home, with the fresh flowers, fully equipped kitchen, and spacious layout. Special mention for the enjoyeable Spanish lesson with Reyna Herrera, and the cooking class with Ceci which made our experience in Mexico most memorable. Petra was very detailed in giving information, and meticulously arranged our day trips to Xochimilco, Cachuamilpa caves and Teotichuacan pyramids. Everything was hassle free for us, including the airport transfers. Thank you Petra, Calussa and Ceci for giving us the quintessentially Mexican experience.
Petra und Cecilia sind wunderbare Gastgeberinnen. Die Wohnung liegt im Centro, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in diesem Stadtteil sind bequem zu Fuss erreichbar. Die Wohnung ist sehr gross, sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet: Eine wahre Oase! Cecilia hat uns eine Mahlzeit zubereitet, die durch kein noch so gutes Restaurant übertroffen wurde. Wir waren sechs Personen und haben uns alle sehr wohl gefühlt!!
Fabulous apartment in great location. Wonderful view. Petra was an incredible host and very helpful. We were having friends over right after we arrived and she arranged for wonderful food to be delivered. Clean and immaculate with every possible item for your convenience. Plenty of maps and suggestions. Definitely will return!
Feeling at home even when your home is far away, thanks you Petra! The Penthouse is amazing and full equiped, we found comfort, beauty, good food, wonderful books, first choice tequila (!) and Petra was so kind, she gave us some advices on places to go, things to do, restaurants and a lot of others that made our staying in DF really unforgettable...then we spent few time together, and helped us a lot, she's a friend now!
Choosing Petra's house for your staying will add beauty to your travel, do it!!!!

What an excellent place in a perfect location for seeing the heart of Mexico City. Petra and her staff are elegant, detail orientated, and a warm welcome as well. We didn't take advantage of any arranged tours that she would have been happy to set up, rather, we explored on foot, grabbed a taxi, or took a bus trip when a bit longer excursion was needed. All very easy to do. And even easier when we always knew we had stellar accommodations awaiting us when we returned "home". Very much as advertised or better.
the place is great and beautiful. great location for all the centro historico has to offer. a bit desolat after 11 if you are the type to hit the town late but i found it safe. my only critique is that the bed was very uncomfortable for me and my boyfriend. however we are use to a tempurpedic mattress. the apartment is very large and really stunning. the terrace is amazing...
petra was very nice. i only saw her once but found her to be very warm.
ceci the house keeper (who i did see a bit) was extremely helpful, kind, and respectful.
