Interaction with Guests
I am happy to provide guests with recommendations for restaurants, museums, sightseeing, nightlife, and more.
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. There is always something to do in Zona Rosa and our neighborhood is probably the only part of Mexico City that never sleeps.
The metro is three blocks away. The metrobus (line 1) is also just as close. On Reforma there are buses that can take you to Chapultepec Park, the historic city center, or the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Condesa, Roma, and Chapultepec Park are all within walking distance.
There is street parking but it is metered Mon-Fri, 8am-8pm.
Taking a taxi is the best way to get to/from the airport. Taking the metro is also easy to/from the airport but not recommended during rush hour with luggage as it can get very crowded.
Other Things to Note
We have very high speed WiFi thanks to our recently installed fiber-optic Internet service.
- Smoking is not allowed inside the apartment, doing so will incur a $50 cleaning surcharge.
- Be courteous of the neighbors, please no excessive noise during the weekday late night hours.
- Keys: One set of house keys will be loaned to the guests during their stay. Please don't lose them, they are expensive to replace. Lost keys incur a replacement fee of $50.
Tim was a great host -- especial for my first trip to Mexico City. He speaks perfect english and spanish, so communication is never a problem. He was also very responsive to questions prior to my visit. If you are looking for a very lively part of the city with bars, restaurants and excitement, the Zona Rosa is it. And Tim's apartment is in the heart of it all. Thanks Tim!
