You will have to observe the condo rules, simple stuff, no noise and consideration with the neighbors, it is a family building. Also, to use the pool you need a swim cap.
Firstly, it is in an excellent location. Right by Bella Artes park and the palace in the Centro. Easy walking distance to the Zocalo and the attractions/museums in the center of Mexico City. Building security is very good with 24/7 monitoring with multiple security personnel and card entry into the building. Gabriel/Angela/Mariana were very helpful in check-in and providing fast responses to queries about the place. Close to metro stations and multiple restaurants/bakeries/stores in the immediate vicinity. All in all, it was a good experience.
Gonzalo & Angela were extremely helpful, the apartment description was just like in the pictures and definitely very well located. Perfect apartment for vacation. The only issued we face was the hot water went off couple of time but the condominium was able to take care of it within an hour.
Totalmente recomendable hospedarse con Gonzalo. El departamento está en excelentes condiciones y la ubicación no podría ser mejor. Lo volvería a hacer.
Fueron cinco días extraordinario en Ciudad de México gracias a un buen apartamento muy bien ubicado además de muy cómodo. Las instrucciones dejadas por Gonzalo son muy importantes. Excelente lugar que nos permitimos recomendar a todos los que vengan al DF. Muchas gracias.
We had a great experience! The apartment was perfect. It matched the description exactly. We got a great tour of the building and apartment right when we arrived. They had a hard card of the metro lines for us which we used countless times each day. The location was great for seeing historic sights and getting around.
We had a problem with the water heater on a Sunday night and it was fixed by early Monday morning. I was very impressed how quickly they answered me and resolved the problem.
We definitely recommend it!
Location! Location! Location! Gonzalo, Sandra and Angela have a wonderful blend here. The unit's access to all that is Centro Historico pairs well with the easily accessed Metro stations. Good local restaurants. And the neighborhood shops provided any items that didn't come with the unit. We even found swim/bathing caps at Sears! Beyond that, however, four of us were comfortably accommodated here. Furnishings were clean. Staff in the complex were friendly and helpful. The complex's laundry and the pool were also greatly appreciated. Special thanks goes to Angela for her orientation upon arrival, her responsiveness to our later questions, and her timely help in making an initial appointment with a wonderful endodontist. We'd like to stay here again someday.
