San Ángel is a colonia or neighborhood of Mexico City, located in the southwest in Álvaro Óbregon borough. Historically, it was a rural community, called Tenanitla in the pre-Hispanic period. Its current name is derived from the El Carmen monastery school called San Ángel Mártir. San Ángel still contains many of its former historic buildings and El Carmen is one of the most visited museums in the city. It is also home to an annual flower fair called the Feria de las Flores.

To work to preserve the area’s rural layout and historic buildings, San Ángel was made the city’s first Patrimonial Cultural Tangible de la Ciudad de México (Tangible Cultural Heritage of Mexico City) in 2008. It was also designated as a "Barrio Mágico" by the city in 2011.

  • Très agréable séjour de 4 semaines dans l’apartment-studio de Régina. Un espace fonctionnel, situé dans un quartier de charme calme et sécuritaire où il fait bon flâner. À 10 minutes de la station de métro la plus proche ou du métro-bus, c’est un plus pour se déplacer dans la ville. Régina est une hôtesse agréable et attentionnée. Je garderai longtemps le souvenir de cet arbre poinsettia d’un rouge flamboyant, dont on peut jouir directement par la grande fenêtre de l’espace chambre. Merci Régina.

  • Regina's studio apartment is truly lovely. It's on a cobblestone street in a quiet neighborhood. The studio is very sunny and overlooks the front yard with pretty pointsetta trees and the driveway. The only noise at times comes from the school nearby, but usually you just hear the chirping of birds, and it's always quiet at night. The bed is comfortable, bathroom is large, plenty of storage space to unpack, kitchen with everything you need. Good Wifi. We have our car with us and it was perfect to park in the secure driveway behind the garage door. Regina was always very responsive and available to answer our questions. We really appreciated her flexibility in our arrival time. Highly recommend!

  • Regina is the best! I love this apartment and I was thrilled that she was able to accommodate me during a last-minute emergency due to flight delays. I've already submitted a thorough review during my last stay, so I will just say THANK YOU! Lovely place, lovely people.

  • We absolutely enjoyed staying at Regina's comfy studio apartment in San Ángel, a very relaxed, safe and picturesque neighborhood in D.F. (Mexico City). It really is as charming as in the pictures.
    Regina is a wonderful host who helped us out with a number of different requests (giving us a lot of helpful information before we even got there, providing a baby crib for our 10 month old, laundry service, printing out our bus tickets for our next destination, just to mention a few) and surprised us with a basket full of homegrown oranges from her mom's garden - simply gorgeous! Furthermore, she's fluent in several languages and has some interesting stories to tell.
    Don't miss out to stay at her place!

  • Regina was very accommodating as I showed up at 5:00am after a midnight flight out of LA. She opened the door to the property at that horrible hour and allowed me to arrive way earlier than she had to. She was as helpful as I needed her to be, which wasn't a whole lot since I know the area well and speak Spanish. The only hiccup of the experience was a lack of hot water on the morning of my departure. She was out of town, so there wasn't a whole to be done about it. The area is very quiet at night and in a nice part of the city where you feel very secure.

  • Regina is a wonderful host, she was willing , his place was very comfortable, clean and super secure! The location is a little bit difficult to reach, but hey, Mexico City is a big city! The location is very safe, we were walking on a Wednesday night on the street and it was really quiet. San Ángel is a neighbourhood with a lot of history and a lot of places to go very close by. I would highly recommend to stay at Regina´s wonderful place.

  • I had a wonderful time at Regina's studio. I felt safe and secure there, and it was clean and the view from the bed was spectacular given that the poinsettias were in bloom. I really loved sitting on the patio. Regina was so nice but I hardly saw her. They tend to keep to themselves in the back side of the house.

    I tried all the forms of public transportation, and really liked riding the Metrobus. It was the least stressful and the walk to Insurgentes is really pleasant.

    Regina also left a lot of information about the local neighborhood and amenities which was quite helpful.

    Someone made a comment about the noise and privacy. I don't agree at all about the privacy. Unless you are looking for something completely detached or walled off from the other living quarters, it is just fine. As for the noise, yes, there is noise. Mexico City is a huge city and my experience in Latin America is that there are always dogs barking somewhere at night and always children screeching in some nearby playground during the day. I did not find it to be in the least intrusive, in fact I was surprised at how quiet it was.

    I will most definitely stay here again the next time I am in DF.

  • We had a nice stay at Regina's place! Regina was very friendly and even offered to wash our clothes as the apartment didn't have a washing machine installed. The apartment is small but well organized and there were some nice books about the city to read. The location is good with San Angel within walking distance, and you can even reach Coyoacán by foot if you have time and patience. But it's good to know that the apartment lies in a quiet residential area, so don't expect a lot of action. Great for resting or working though. The only real drawback of this apartment is that it's not as private as it might seem. You share the entrance from the street, and cars are parked on the nice courtyard most of the time. If you don't want the people passing in and out to see straight into the apartment you must close the door blinds. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the stay.

  • We absolutely loved this apartment so much so that we extended our stay in Mexico City. The apartment is cozy, the bed is comfortable, and the place is well-situated next to the Metro station. Regina is absolutely a gem - she was so helpful there are no words to describe it. No matter what we needed she was there and she was really quick to reply back whenever we sent her a message. I absolutely recommend this place and Regina to anyone who is looking for a place in Mexico City. You will not find a better place than this.

  • Great place to stay. Very central to the top sights in Mexico City. Regina was friendly and very communicative prior to our visit. The place has all the amenities you could ask for. Hot water, cable, drinking water, Internet etc.
