We are a couple with a baby, trying to get some fresh air out of the city

We enjoyed a six-night stay as a couple at Mariel's place in Colonia La Condesa, which provided a clean, quiet (both in the building and street), functional, and seemingly safe base from which to explore DF. We were welcomed personally by our hosts and we felt secure that they would attend to any problems that might arise. Fortunately, the apartment delivered on all the listed amenities in good working order, and it is large enough for families or people taking a longer stay to consider. The one thing to keep in mind is not to overload the electrical circuits with too many devices. The weather was mild, so I can't say what it'd be like when it's hot or cold outside, but mosquitoes will fly in if the courtyard door is left open.
The neighborhood seems to operate at a slower pace than other parts of the city and it features many good cafes and restaurants during the day and evening, easy and diverse food shopping, banks, and a central location by DF standards. It's also more expensive according to its reputation, but I wouldn't know by how much. There are radio taxis and ecobicis close by, and the circuit boulevards around the parks are great for strolling. I found Foursquare to have good local advice in Spanish.
My piece of advice: never ever underestimate the horribleness of traveling back from other parts of town to La Condesa during rush hour, which goes past 8pm, no matter what mode of transport you are taking including the otherwise fine Metrobuses.
Thanks for everything, Mariel and family, from both us.
We didn't meet Mariel but we were greeted by Giuseppe who was friendly and helpful. We liked the neighborhood and were surprised by the number of trees and parks in Mexico City. Thank you for letting us leave our luggage in the apartment until it was time to leave for the airport.
Mariel met us and walked us to the tourist office which was helpful. The apartment is well located but a good 6 blocks to the Metro. Since it appears to be a safe neighborhood, not a problem. Apartment is very spacious and adequate but not luxurious. The Mexican restaurant across the street is excellent. Even had vegetarian options, unusual for a Mexican restaurant.
Be sure to visit the local Friday morning Condesa market. Very clean. Wish we had eaten there.
Mariel is a wonderful host, and the apartment was absolutely perfect -- bright and spacious with comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen. The neighborhood is great too, the park is beautiful and there are lots of nice restaurants and markets nearby. The subway stops just a few blocks away, and there's a taxi stand right across the street. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if we come back to Mexico City.
We enjoyed staying in this apartment.
It was comfortable and roomy as described.
Mariel and Giuseppe were helpful and quickly attended to the electricity when we overloaded the system.
The apartment is in a good area close to public transport, places to eat and to drink.
Mariel und ihre Familie sind tolle Gastgeber. Der Kontakt lief reibungslos, sie war sehr lieb und aufmerksam. Obwohl sie nicht in der Wohnung lebt, hiess sie uns bei der Ankunft wie abgemacht und zuverlässig vor dem Haus willkommen - und das sogar mit einem Prosecco!
Narvarte ist ein überaus gemütliches Viertel, bestens ausgestattet mit Kaffees, Tante Emma-Läden, einem riesigen Einkaufscenter, zuverlässigem Taxistand, Kinderspielplatz, Früchte- und Gemüsemarkt, und mit diversen Imbissbuden. In 10 Minuten ist man bei der Metro.
Die Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert. Lichtdruchflutet, sauber, gut eingerichtet, gross, freundlich. Wir waren erst zu dritt und in der letzten Nacht zu viert: 1 Paar und 2 Freundinnen lassen sich perfekt auf die beiden Schlafzimmer verteilen, und als Zückerchen obendrauf verfügt die Wohnung über zwei komplette Bäder, durch das Schlafzimmer für ein Paar gelangt man auf einen kleinen, feinen Balkon. In der Küche lässt sich ausgezeichnet kochen. Mariel hat ausserdem für einen Wasserkanister gesorgt.
Ich würde jederzeit wieder in die Wohnung zurückkehren.
We are a family of four and it was an excellent stay for four months in total. The place looks as described and everything works (even hot water on demand, wireless internet, laundry). Great place for long stays with kids in a lively neighborhood but a quiet environment. The hosts, Mariel and Giuseppe, are responsive and helpful --excellent hosts.
We were very satisfied with basically everything. The apartment is nicely furnished, it 's fresh, and clean as the pictures show it. Mariel and her husband are very correct and friendly and even more important: available att all times. I will definitely recommend it to my friends when visiting Mexico city.
Fantastic apartment, fantastic hosts. It's not our first time in the apartment, so I won't repeat, and the photos do a great job describing it. The hosts are very responsive. We had a glitch with the water heater and in a matter of two hours it was fixed. The location, size, quietness, and features of the apartment makes it ideal for families like us.
Such a wonderful apartment. Modern, bright and roomy.
The location was fantastic. 4 blocks from Metro, and two blocks away from a supermarket.
The park across the street added charm and a nice neighborhood feel.
The hosts were very responsive with communication, and easy to deal with.
Will definitely be booking this again on my return trip.
