Bruce made us feel special from the point we arrived in Mexico City by having one of his employees wait for us carrying a sign with our name. After getting dropped off at the entrance of the complex, Alejandro gave us a tour of the condo, the complex and the surrounding areas. The views from the 12th floor balcony were better than the pictures from the listing. There were cafe's, restaurants and convenience stores all around. There's a bank next door that we used a couple of times to exchange money and also used their ATM machine. We enjoyed a couple of the sports bars just around the corner from the complex. We were within walking distance of the zocalo, Templo mayor, Bellas Artes and many more historic buildings.
I stayed at this condo with three friends during a recent vacation to Mexico City and found it to be both comfortable and well-situated within the city. The complex is sparkling clean and quiet and offers a lot of amenities, including a gym and pool. It sits across from Parque Alameda (great street food) and just a stone's throw from the Palacio Bellas Artes and the Zócalo. And the metro station is just down the street as well. For my money, I would much rather stay someplace central within the city as opposed to in the trendier, but more removed Condesa or Roma neighborhoods. We especially loved the balcony at the condo, which offered a terrific view of the city. Bruce was an excellent host, and we look forward to staying at his properties in future visits to the city.
Location is very central with Alameda park and several shops/restaurants nearby, and many other things within a short walk. Zocolo is within walking distance, but you might want to take a taxi if your feet are getting tired (we found taxis very inexpensive while we were there). It's a friendly building, somewhat modern. The apartment was a reasonable size for our group of 3, and would be okay for 4. Bruce and his team (Roberto, Ricardo) were attentive and friendly and easily available to answer questions or address issues. Bruce provided a large container of water, as you can't drink the tap water pretty much anywhere in Mexico City. The apartment had a great view, and the new A/C unit was wonderful and worked great. It was super convenient to have the washer/dryer and dishwasher there as well. The WiFi internet was easy to connect to and worked smoothly. Due to some ongoing renovations, Bruce put us up in a different property the first night, which was a good place, being a bit bigger than this one, but it was louder as it was closer to the street and we heard traffic throughout the night; we recommend this place more. However, Bruce compensated us for our trouble. We also utilized his driver, Ricardo, to go to the pyramids (highly recommended!) and to drop us off at the airport for our early morning flight (rate was competitive with quotes we got from taxis). Bruce also lent us a cellphone, which was awesome to have to connect with our friends living in Mexico and for contacting Bruce or his team for any issues we had. We used the pool once which was a nice amenity. Bruce also had someone meet us at the airport, and as international travelers it was nice to have the greeting upon arrival and to have someone help us navigate the large city right away.
Bruce is a great host, very friendly & helpful. Airport pick was particularly welcome. The apartment is great value, has everything you need & couldn't be better located. 5 minutes walk to the Zocalo & Templo Mayor and less to the Palacio de Bellas Artes & Alameda Park. Everything you need or want is in easy walking distance (including the very easy to navigate metro). Ricardo, the driver/tour guide recommended by Bruce is also fantastic & would definitely suggest you take a trip with him. Loved our stay & would highly recommend Bruce as a host.
AMAZING! Is the only description even close enough to describe Bruce´s apartment. Modern, clean and nice and ammenities that you can imagine, the bed was awesome to sleep in, the bathrooms are clean and great, you have a spacious closet with a security box, tourist information and maps, tv, nice bluetooth stereo, sky, etc. The kitchen is great! Purified water, ice cubes and laundry, the view from the balcony is awesome! Bruce is just the nicest person you have ever met, thoughtful and always up for a chat and if you should have any question, regarding where to visit, where to go or where to find a certain thing. The stay was one of the most pleasant we've ever had. Very good location and ideal for use of all local transport in México DF, the metro station Juarez is just 1 block away and Bellas Artes in the next corner, this apartment is the best option you have if you are visiting the city, everything is close, the place, comodities and view are awesome! The secutity in the building is unbelievable and the swimming pool is warm and clean. 100% recommended . We will definitely stay in Bruce's place again!
