The Space

Edificios Condesa is an historical two-building complex covering an entire city block. It celebrated its 100th birthday in 2011 and still going strong. Restaurants, shops, lots of night life are all within walking distance and yet this tree-lined street is quiet and quite peaceful. Public transportation (buses & subway) is within a block or two. Every Tuesday there's an amazing street market taking place right at the front door and going on for 3 blocks.

The room is sunny, very clean and light with two single beds, all linen provided, closet, table & chairs. I'm also renting another bedroom with one double bed. The bathroom is shared. Kitchen privileges are provided, tea & coffee provided. Although there's no smoking in the apartment, smokers can sit on the steps and enjoy a view of Chapultepec Castle. I'm available to help you have the best time possible. I've lived, loved, traveled and been addicted to the food for many years and love sharing my experiences.

Guest Access

Every guest is welcome to use my apartment as their home. The only room that's not available for use, but not closed off, is my bedroom. The living room has the only TV and after playing with more remote controls than anyone would want to fiddle with, it works! The dining room is a great place to eat, particularly breakfast while checking out maps, etc. for the day ahead. The kitchen is has everything needed for a meal, or just stashing fruit, drinks and snacks.

Interaction with Guests

I'm home most days and am totally available to answer questions and help out with whatever may be needed. Mexico City is very easy to get around in. I'll help with reservations if my guests are going on to other parts of the country and always call a taxi for the airport. I love sharing me and my home.

  • It was my first experience with Airbnb, and it was incredible, especially because of Mimi. She is the most gracious hostess, makes her home become ours, gives us tips and sincerely cares about our experience. The neighborhood is safe, the building is extremely charming, close to supermarket, bakery and the metro Chapultepec. When I say close, is really close, it's like 2 blocks. You can walk by Paseo de la Reforma and Bosque de Chapultepec, and still return home without facing traffic. I really want to come back, Mexico City is a great place to meet, but I'm sure it was great because of Mimi.

  • Staying at Mimi's was my first experience with airbnb, and to Mexico, and it was a delight. After great instructions and welcoming emails, Mimi met me out the front of her beautiful home then sat me down for a chat and a pot of tea. Accompanying her to a friend's place introduced me to travel on buses and the metro. With Mimi's instructions I was riding the metro like a local in no time, something I had not expected to do with my meagre smattering of Spanish. She is wonderful company, a mine of information and truly welcomed me to feel at home. Her home is in a very safe and easy part of the city to explore from. I look forward to keeping in contact and would love to stay again. Thanks Mimi.

  • We really enjoyed staying at Mimi´s house! Mimi made us feel right at home the second we arrived and the duration of our stay. Her home felt like home; we felt like we belonged there. Her house was clean and located in an excellent area. Mimi was also very helpful in giving us suggestions on places to see or things to do or places to eat. We would definitely stay with Mimi again if we need a place to stay!

    Despues de una semana de habernos despedido de la casa de Mimi aun seguimos extrañando el lugar . Definitivamente seria nuestra unica opcion si necesitaramos un lugar en la Ciudad de Mexico otravez. Mimi es una persona muy culta e (website hidden) senti como en casa desde el primer dia que llegamos. Una atencion exelente!. Gracias Mimi.

  • I loved my stay with Mimi in her charming apartment in the beautiful neighborhood of La Condesa. It was fun to explore the Tuesday Market that sprang up right outside her front door and stroll the quiet streets replete with small cafes and restaurants. Mimi herself was a fount of "off the beaten track" Mexico City information. She really bowled me over when I asked for private guide suggestions and she mentioned her friend "Moshde" and her company called "Journeys Beyond the Surface." So, I jumped on Trip Advisor to discover that "Journeys" is listed as Numero Uno of 29 activities in Mexico City! How cool is that? Needless to say, I experienced two superb days of private touring thanks to Moshde (and Mimi). If you love big cities that are alive and vibrant, then you will love Mexico City. I, for one, plan to return and will be beating a path to Mimi's door.

  • Mimi was a lovely hostess - she had lots of useful information for getting around and where to go/what to see. The apartment is on a nice street - on the quiet side of Condesa (thank goodness!) and an amazing market opens up outside the front door once a week there - an absolute treasure (it made me want to move in). We were a couple, and the one bed that can fit two in the room is slightly small for that, but there is also another bed in the room, so there are options :)

  • Mimi was very welcoming and the space speaks for itself - full of personality, warmth, etc. There are two wonderful cats (I believe that one of them is only stays with Mimi occasionally) to keep you company, access to Condesa and the rest of the city via the Chapultepec metro station which is only a block away, and you are guaranteed great conversation with a fantastic host. Couldn't have asked for a better experience through airbnb.

  • It was lovely staying with mimi. we enjoyed mimi s company a lot, the chat in the morning and night, having papaya and her special coffee '-the best one in m.c., we ve heard from people that must know it;). she told us all the important things to know for the stay. the flat was an oasis in mexico city,
    so beautifully decorated with lovely woodenfloors allover. we would ve liked to stay longer, and enjoy the company of mimi and the cats. when we go back we would stay no other place than mimis' if possible. mimi, sorry for our very late message. we say hello from istanbul! best william and lisa

  • Very pleasant experience in Mimi's beautiful apartment. She helped me with advice on places to visit in Mexico City, supplied me with exotic fruits and eucalyptus lollipops that I needed since I caught a cold. Mexico City is a vast and mysterious place, so having a host as knowledgeable and helpful as Mimi is key to exploring the various aspects of the city's life.

  • Mimi's place is great. Beautiful house, great safe neighborhood. I was arriving late (1:30am ish) but Mimi had no problems. She had a bowl of fruits ready for me. Now I know orange juice over papayas tastes good!

    Mimi also had coffee for me in the mornings. Always good! I stayed three nights and highly recommend her. Will stay again if I visit Mexico city!!

  • Mimi is a great host, and her apartment is in a really excellent location. The markets were right outside the street on Tuesday! Mimi is very helpful and warm and has a great deal of local knowledge about Mexico City to share.
