The Space

Nice, quiet room in a top-storey flat only a few minutes' walk from Frida's house... literally on the next street south. The Colonia del Carmen the nicest, calmest part of Coyoacán, but all the fun and bustle is just blocks away -- so you get the best of both worlds!

(Coyoacan is simply the loveliest suburb of Mexico City; the neighborhood is great... very clean, safe, and calm, with lots of restaurants to choose from… everything just steps away from vibrant bustling squares and plazas -- reminiscent of a European city. Although quiet and leafy, there are still tons of things to do here without ever leaving the "barrio": museums, galleries, restaurants, markets, theatre, dance, movies, music… and the metro stops are pretty close, too).

The room (10m2) has nice big windows with plenty of fresh air and natural light (lots of trees round here, so the view is nice, too), a big closet, and a private bathroom. It's very quiet at night, but you'll find nice cafés and "fondas" (traditional restaurants) only a block away.

I'm an internet junkie, so you get WIFI, of course. You can also make use of my kitchen...

Very close:

-Frida's house
-Handicraft market
-Traditional food market
-The oldest church in the Americas (the whole neighborhood is the oldest Spanish-built part of Mexico City).
-The house of Hernán Cortez
-The house of La Malinche (Hernán Cortez' mistress and aidée)
-The main plaza of Coyoacán
-Churubusco Convent (site of the temple of Huichilopoxtli -Aztec god of war-, now the Museo de las Intervenciones, a museum dedicated to the wars Mexico fought against the French and the Americans in the XIX Century)
-Viveros (a huge park joggers simply love)
-National Film Archive: a great place to go watch the best international -and local- films.
-El Jarocho: a famous café.

-2 Metro stations
-Taxqueña bus station (1 metro station + 10 min walk)
-Supermarket
-Laundry
-Pharmacy

Close:

-UNAM, Ciudad Universitaria with all its museums, parks, concert halls and other attractions
-Anahuacalli: the museum Diego Rivera built to house his collection of prehispanic artifacts.
-San Ángel (the second nicest "barrio" in Mexico City, after Coyoacán, of course.)
-Diego's house
-More Mercados, museums, cafés and plazas
-Condesa (only a 30 minute bus ride); in case you want more active night life.

I love showing off Coyoacan, so if I'm around, I may give you a personal tour of some of the nicest spots.

  • Alexander is a great host, very helpful and friendly and a great communicator, with quite a few languages in his repertoire (especially English with a Russian accent!). He also had some great suggestions in regards to food and places to see around.

    The Area is fantastic, the neighbourhood is lovely and very quiet. The flat is in a cul-de-sac of Paris street and really easy to go get to, both from the metro station and the centre of Coyoacan.

  • We did two bookings through airbnb as we went away for the weekend to Cocoyoc. Alex was kind enough to let us leave our bags, which was a big help.
