The weekly and monthly rates include the delivery of clean linens and towels each week, except when booking with a special offer or promotional rate.
With every booking, we always charge a $50usd check-out cleaning fee to make a thorough cleaning after our guests leave. That way we can deliver the property to our next guests on the day of their arrival in complete order, neat as a button and with everything working as a clock. During their stay, our guests can request this very complete cleaning service for the same cost upon request or can choose to hire a BASIC cleaning service $30usd which includes the making of the beds, swiping, dusting, vacuuming and cleaning of the bathrooms, but excludes the cleaning of the kitchen, the changing of linens and/or towels and the washing of dishes and other appliances. In any case, the cleaning service is rendered upon request only and is subject to availability, so please book this service well in advance. We recommend a clean-up service at least once a week and we strongly suggest putting all valuables and money inside the safe on clean-up days.
Be aware that the cleaning service might not be available for specific dates during the holiday season or certain Mexican national holidays, or its cost could double, especially on Dec. 24 & 25and Jan 1st.
Also note that a refundable $150usd security deposit fee applies with every booking.
Interaction with Guests
We, Jorge & Monnah, the owners, do not live in Mexico City anymore. We left almost 8 years ago seeking to take a break from the urban jungle. We now live in Cancun with our two lovely kids. We found it very convenient to lease our properties through the internet to travelers seeking to stay at comfortable, peaceful and awesome places and still be able to take care of their budget.
Our property manager Gaby is in charge of supervising that everything goes smoothly from beginning to end. Once a booking is confirmed, we immediately send an email with all out contact information and she gets in touch with our guests to coordinate on their arrival to the property to hand them the keys, to give them the proper information regarding the place and the surroundings and , if necessary, to take them to the nearest grocery store for supplies. She is always available to help and inform, and especially to solve promptly any kind of mishap during our guests' stay.
Thanks for your interest and preference, and enjoy our beautiful house while staying in Mexico City.
Jorge & Monnah
The Escandon neighborhood was funded in the early 19th century on the farmlands of large estates or Haciendas. This neighborhood was part of the Hacienda de la Condesa, which was owned by the Escandon family, who divided and sold the southern lands of said estate. The neighborhood is divided in 2 sections: Escandon I & Escandon II. Our property is located in the first one.
We are located within a very small and nice housing compound where just a few other people live, so the atmosphere that prevails is that of peace and tranquility, an unexpected feature for a dwelling in the geographical centre of the city.
To access the compound, you must go through 2 doors, both of which remain locked at night to ensure, both, the permanent residents', and our guests' safety.
There are all kinds of businesses in our area within a 5 block radius - there is a supermarket, several convenience stores, a typical fresh-produce market, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, pharmacy stores, a police station, a fire station, a postal office, a church, a park, a gas station, banks with ATM machines, barber shops, and a street market that very conveniently sets up on our same street every Tuesday. Furthermore, there is a shopping mall with a movie theatre complex inside, a little bit over a mile away (Cinemex@Metropoli Patriotismo).
The property is located in the quadrant that forms with the following avenues: Revolución, Patriotismo, Benjamin Franklin & Viaducto. This allow you to take any kind of transportation fast and easily to go anywhere in the city in less time.
We are also 3 blocks away south of La Condesa and minutes away by car from Polanco and La Roma, so you will be quite close of all the main city attractions like Reforma Ave., Chapultepec Park and Castle, the National Anthropology and History Museum, the zoo, the Sumaya Museum, and much more.
There are 2 subway stations (Tacubaya and Patriotismo) and a metro-bus station (De La Salle) between 3 and 5 blocks away from the property plus endless possibilities to easily take a cab or the bus in the nearby streets or avenues, in any direction.
Our guests simply cannot believe how easy it is to go to and from the Escandon neighborhood to any other point in the city!

I lived in the apartment for three months and it was just wonderful! Gaby, who manages the apartment for her sister and brother in law, is a real joy. I could not have found a more perfect place to stay.
The apartment is comfortable and tastefully decorated. It's in a fun neighborhood that undergoing gentrification, yet still has an authentic feel about it. You'll love the Tuesday tianguis.
I can not say enough good things about the apartment or the landlords. If you stay here, you'll not be disappointed.
Desde que llegue al estudio me sentí como en casa, Gabi nos recibió y nos indico todo de una forma clara.
Tambien nos orientó con mapas de la zona e indicaciones sobre esta gran ciudad
La atención de Gabi fue excelente, sin su ayuda quizas no hubiéramos conocido tantos sitios.
La próxima visita al DF sin duda me quedaría de nuevo en el estudio.
Ha sido un gusto recibirlos en nuestro estudio. Me quedo muy contenta de saber que su estancia fue placentera y su visita a nuestra ciudad bien aprovechada. Nos encantará recibirlos de vuelta. Feliz regreso a casa y mis mejores deseos para ustedes.
Estuvimos dos meses y la pasamos estupendamente. El lugar es pequeño y agradable. El barrio es muy apacible. Gaby es una buena y atenta anfitriona.
We stayed in this fantastic studio for 2 weeks and loved every minute! Over the summer we have been in several Airbnb apartments in different neighborhoods in Mexico City, and, for us, this one was the best. The place is spotlessly clean, quiet, comfortable, and well-equipped. Gabriela, who manages the property, is great to work with, and she's incredibly organized. We found the neighborhood to be safe and homey - we could easily have walked to Condesa or Roma, but ended up staying in and enjoying Escandón the entire time. We're vegan, and we had no trouble finding food at the nearby grocery store, mercado, and a special market that is set up on Tuesdays at the end of the street. Also, we recommend Kowloon (Asian and Mexican) and Pastelería Mappy (coffee and pastries - yes, there is a selection of vegan pastries!) Special thanks to Jorge, Monnah, and Gaby - as well as the rest of the staff - for all their hard work creating a top-notch facility.
Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting you in person, just by exchanging mails and messages I could tell how easy going and nice you are. We are glad and grateful that you & your husband chose our lodging to stay at during your visit to Mexico City. I hope you will give us a chance to host you again should you come back. We will receive you with arms open wide. Best regards and best wishes to you both!
This was a fantastic place to stay.
The apartment itself is very spacious, the bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped and there access to a shared courtyard which is a nice place to eat meals. The studio is located near to both a subway - which makes getting about very easy - and a supermarket which means you can easily buy things to cook in the kitchen :)
Monnah was very helpful when organising the booking process and Gaby was great and full of information upon arrival.
I would definitely recommend this studio! Thanks Jorge, Monnah & Gaby!
Our host Gaby was outstanding in every way, nothing was a problem to her. She even got us a kettle. The apartment was very nicely appointed with a lovely comfortable bed and nice linens. We stayed a week and would happily stay again. We did mention to Gaby about taking some of the furniture out as it was a little cluttered. We loved the convenience of a washing machine and a blender! Superb. AAA+++
Our stay at Jorge and Monnah's place was excellent. The place is a real gem, and once you are in, you feel as if you are at home. It is actually nicer than the photos show!. Gaby - Monnah's sister - is an incredible lady. So gentle, intelligent and accommodating. The location is super and the neighborhood safe at all times. We shall be back.
