Apartment - Entire home/apt · Estrasburgo, Mexico City, Federal District 06600, Mexico

The Space

This fabulous duplex penthouse apartment boasts two levels, three bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and can accommodate up to nine people. The spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, and full bathroom are located on the first level. The third bedroom with half bathroom, enclosed terrace, and patio with washer/dryer are located on the second level.

Each bedroom has a full-sized bed. In addition, there is a sofa on the second floor that opens up into a full-sized bed. And, should you need it, there is a couch in the living room that can accommodate that ninth person. Our full-service kitchen has everything needed to prepare fresh meals at home. We have high-speed wireless Internet and other creature comforts such as speakers to listen to your music.

What can I say about Zona Rosa that hasn't already been said? The neighborhood is very tourist-friendly, gay-friendly, straight-friendly, overall friendly! Our tree-lined street is tucked away between Amberes and Genova streets just south of Reforma, right around the corner from the Angel of Independence monument and directly across from the US Embassy. Amberes street is considered the gay heart of the city. Genova street is a lovely pedestrian thoroughfare with something for everyone: cantinas, karaoke bars, shopping, and more.

We are close to all transportation to easily get you where you want to go. The metro, metrobus that runs on Insurgentes, and buses that run on Reforma are all short walks away.

Our spacious apartment is a lovely retreat in the heart of it all. We are more than happy to provide visitor information or anything else desired to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Fresh linens and towels will be provided. The apartment has a video intercom for letting people into the building.

We offer Mexican-style breakfast service for an additional charge. Our space is also suitable for events, we have a projector available for rent. Please inquire for further information about event and breakfast services.

  • Tim was a brilliant host. He made arrival and departure really easy, and is fun to hang out with. He explained the area and answered all our questions.

    The flat itself is lovely. It's got a great central living room from which the other rooms flow, so it's a nice social space. Anyone with an iPhone could use the AirPort to connect their music to the speakers. And the terrace is lovely as a place to hang out in the summer.

    Finally, the location is excellent - just round the corner from Independencia Square, 5-10 min walk from the metro, and easy to get cabs from. Plus the area has loads of bars and restaurants. It can get noisy at night, and that could disturb light sleepers in the terrace room - but given how fun Mexico nightlife is, you probably won't want to be sleeping early anyway!

  • Tim was an excellent and responsive host and his place is perfect for a large crowd staying in DF. I booked his entire apartment for my 7 friends visiting from NY and they were very comfortable. The place has a very central location, very tidy, interesting decoration, and all the utilities you might need. I really recommend staying at Tim's place.

  • The apartment was in great condition and looked even better in real life than in the pictures. Timothy was responsive, flexible, and friendly. I high recommend this place.

  • This place was well located, spacious, well furnished in a charming building. Our host Tim was very welcoming and helpful on arranging everything for our stay. Very lively neighbourhood. We ( a family of seven) spent a wonderful stay.

  • It was an exciting week in Mexico City. Place we stayed at was right at the center of city nightlife: so many places to go to or eat at... Apartment was comfortable for our family 5. Timothy, our host was very accommodating and eager to help. We had used his advises and did not regret. Way to go!

  • Me and four friends had a great stay at Timothy's Zona Rosa duplex penthouse in Mexico City over Thanksgiving weekend; we were visiting for a friend's wedding. The duplex was comfortable, had lots of space for the five of us, and was just as good as it looks in the photos... the upstairs bed and patio were particularly special. The location was great too, very convenient for walking to interesting neighborhoods and close to the metro. Most impressive though was Timothy's very quick response time to any query... even when he was traveling and we had a question on a holiday. And his communication was always clear and very friendly. We'd be happy to stay there again!

  • Our experience when staying at Timothy's duplex was pleasant and we enjoyed our stay.

    Timothy was very hospitable and attentive to our requirements.

    The only draw back was the fact that sometimes there was no water but it was not his fault as the city does water blackouts to conserve the water. Tim had installed a large water tank reserve to combat this and once he had the reserve tank working there was no more problems. The duplex is located on the 3rd floor but since the apartments are duplex the stairs are doubled so at first it was a climb but you get used to it and it helps in your cardio (no elevators).

    I highly recommend this duplex for future renters because the duplex was clean and it is located downtown with close amenities to clubs, restaurants, metro, historic sites etc,

    The duplex does not come with TV so you must request it and bring a media or dvd player with movies in order to watch something because there is no cable.

    If we were to visit Mexico City again we would definitely go back and stay at Timothy's duplex.

  • Perfect apartment for my stay. We had 6 people (2 couples & 2 singles) the first two nights and 7 people (another single) the last night, and it was fantastic to have so much space for everyone to sleep. The beds were all very comfortable & the water pressure in the shower was excellent (this is a big deal for Mexico City apartments). Timothy was there to greet our group, provide us with numbers for taxis, give the wireless password, and leave instructions for everything. We cooked quite a bit and found the kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed.

    The neighbourhood was great - close to everything. You can walk to La Roma, Condesa, or the center of the city. But because we were there during a rainy period, having the metro and metrobus so close by was also incredibly helpful. And even though the neighborhood is really lively and famous for parties and clubs and general mayhem, once inside the apartment it was like being in another world. For my group, best of both worlds - we loved the nightlife, but we also loved coming home to a quiet and peaceful home. I slept with the windows open and had no problem with noise (there was maybe a hum, the kind of general noise-of-a-big-city, nothing more than that).

    I had a great time and think the apartment is represented 100% accurately in the listing.

  • We rented the apartment from Tim and Brent on short notice (less than 2 weeks). We found them to be great hosts and the space was very good for our needs. It's a large apartment with generously sized bedrooms, a huge full bathroom (with an equally large shower), an adequately equipped kitchen, and solarium on the 2nd level with indoor and outdoor space and a half-bath (narrow pipes so we were asked not to flush paper down the toilet in that one). There is no heat or air conditioning in the apartment, which is common. Three of us taking back to back showers never ran out of hot water. The location is in the "hopping" Zona Rosa entertainment district, meaning that it is convenient to many bars, restaurants, coffee shops, stores and nightlife options. It is on what would be essentially the 4th floor, but with the windows open, you can definitely hear activity from the people and clubs at street level, so if you want the central and bustling location (which we did), it's great. If you want total silence at night, you might not find it here. The Reforma, a major arterial street is a block away, a large Metro stop is close by, several embassies are close, and there (email hidden)ly newer shopping mall about a 10 minute walk away along the Reforma. The Centro Historico district is about a 15-20 minute walk. There are several convenience stores, grocery stores and pharmacies nearby. Tim and Brent can help arrange for activities, and we found that the concierge at the Marriott around the corner would also assist with arrangements with a reasonable tip in hand. We had him arrange our trip to Teotihuacan ($550 pesos per person) and our trip back to the airport (which was about $209 pesos from Yellow Cab's kiosk at the airport and $100 pesos per person back via a private car arranged by the Marriott). Bottom line, if you want a central, bustling location, with excellent hosts, this is a very good option!

    Response from Timothy:

    Thanks for the thorough review, I'm very flattered! And I had no idea about the Marriott concierge, that's very good to know. You and your friends are welcome back anytime!!

  • Me encanto!! La siguiente ves que voy con la familia o amigos al DF, me gustaria quedarme en el Penthouse de Timothy. Zona Rosa is super centrally located. Great location!! Great bars, I recommend La casa de tono on Londres a few blocks away which is open 24 hours
