Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Well located apartment with a lot of charm and historic panache in the old centre. Rent it , its great.

    April 2014
    Response from Jano:

    Thank you very much, Peter. We hope to see you back.

  • Myself and two friends stayed here recently. Bus from airport to front door very convenient. Janos apartment was clean, well organised and we received a friendly welcome from Janos friend David. Great street view which was very interesting to us. Once we sorted out where we were in the vast city of Mexico, it was clear how many interesting sites are within walking distance. Small Mexican convenience store just around the corner, some little bars to chat with the local people. Would highly recommend Janos apartment .

    Response from Jano:

    Thank you Michael, we would love to receive you again and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the terrace and Centro Historico in general.

  • Great place, great location

    March 2014
  • What a wonderful apartment! The location was perfect and the apartment was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Would definitely reccomend this place.

    March 2014
  • This is an excellent and truly comfortable way to get the authentic Mexico City experience for an affordable price! Jano's place is incredible, particularly from an architectural perspective. I traveled with a group of four, and we were comfortably accommodated. Jano compiled a guide to the local area (Centro Historico), which we found very helpful. We were greeted by Karolina (who may be Jano's assistant). After that point, we had the place to ourselves for the next three days of our visit. For a historical and touristic experience, the Centro Historico area around the apartment is very interesting. If you are in Mexico City for more than a day or two, I strongly recommend visiting the nearby neighborhoods Polanco and Condesa. Both of these neighborhoods will have additional dining, bars, and shopping options; however, the accommodations in these neighborhoods will be slightly more expensive.

  • If your looking for a place in the heart of the city, that can take you within 15 blocks to restaurants, museums, Zocalo, and the airport in 20 min with traffic, then Jano's well appointed and classy, modern and spacious apartment in the Colonial style building, is your nest for your Stay and exploration.
    Their helped, supported and gave ideas, and more when I first arrived. it made the stay in the Heart of the city one that I will remember for a long time. Thanks for sharing this space with the World.

    March 2014
  • Wonderful place to stay, in Centro Historical
    The help offered in around the town was wonderful.
    Books, movies, and systems and introductions to all on arrival was wonderful. This airy and big apt loft is ideal for a downtown expereince of Mexico City.

    February 2014
  • One could not ask for much more. The Apartment is wonderful. Karolina is such a great hostess and Jano fast on communicating and suggesting. They are both very helpful.
    In the few boxes one is in the heart of the Old Historical Zocolo and the airy open floor plan give the feel of a bigger space then it is.

    Highly recommend it if your wanting to be in this area.

    February 2014
  • The past 44 reviewers have established beyond doubt that Casa Tezontle is a great place to stay. And I join the chorus without reservations. A word about the Historic Center of Mexico City: walk its streets, taste its food, see the facades, climb on rooftops and bell towers, see the frescos in the fruit market, and buy anything you want, from clothes to electronics. The Historic Center is the oldest place in the Americas. Don’t go anywhere else in Mexico City before you do some legwork all over the center. Let it seduce you.

    February 2014
    Response from Jano:

    Thank you, Ramiro. We hope to receive you again at Casa Tezontle.

  • A very large and very well located apartment. The apartment and the immediate area is very historic and there are many sites within close walking distance. We really enjoyed the high ceilings and patio doors overlooking the street.

    Jano's assistants Karolina and David were very helpful and considerate.

    We very much enjoyed our stay.

    Response from Jano:

    Thank you very much, David. It was great to have you as hosts. Hope to see you in your next visit to Mexico City. Casa Tezontle will be waiting you.
