Marika's place is fantastic! It's centrally located, the kitchen and living room are huge and the bedroom is very comfortable. If you are looking for more privacy during your stay, I wouldn't recommend this place, as Marika works here daily, but that was ok with us because she provided wonderful recommendations for sightseeing and eating in the neighborhood and was a very gracious host! The place is cold in the winter - no heat I believe - so bring slippers and something cozy to sleep in.
Amazing apartment, location and host. The room and its private bathroom are very comfortable. I had an excellent stay.
Once the elevator door opened to her flat one is immediately transported into a whole new world, much like walking into a movie set production for a period piece from the 70's with a cast of supporting actors and crew on site. But in this case, the casts were no actors, but rather true artisans, pattern makers, and assistants for her successful lingerie line. In the middle of the "set," Marika broke her "role" and greeted me with warmth and immediately offered herself to get me settled. I had made prior reservations for some architectural tours and without hesitation she insisted in calling to confirm all my appointments, a taxi service, and her architecture friend to provide additional recommendations all within a span of 10 minutes! She even escorted me down and provided clear instructions for the cab driver. I was quite impressed how she managed to juggle an entire staff while making my arrangements. And there I was, off for my first adventure in Mexico City!
As the weekend approached, her team was off, and in the moment of downtime is where you get to learn more about the leading lady. Marika is brilliant, friendly, warm, communicative, and really sincere in making sure your stay was taken care of. Nothing seemed impossible for her to help you get the best out of your trip. She even offered to drive and take me to few places of interest on a rainy, dreary day! This could not have been any more gracious act of kindness as I was feeling quite ill that day.
The apartment was huge with carefully curated pieces of vintage furniture that brought life to the "set." The bedroom was clean and had more space than one could ever use. It was also connected to a communal bathroom that I had access to myself during my stay. The bathroom was huge with marble floors and tub. The apartment is centrally located and was within striking distance to great neighborhoods. I think staying at Marika's place is an immense treat and a unique experience that should not be passed upon. So do not hesitate to book if you're considering this property.
THANK YOU so much Marika for hosting and making my stay truly pleasurable!
Gorgeous, quiet (woke up to birdsong, the occasional siren, and the bustle of a boutique design studio in the morning, which, to my New York ears, was just right), and comfortable space. Ask Marika about her lingerie line. Grab an espresso from the VW beetle-roadside-coffee-stand on the way to Chapultepec Park (a 10-15 minute walk) or the metro (at Sevilla, a 10 minute walk). And if your flight is not at an unreasonable hour, Marika will help arrange a taxi to the airport for you.
Super amazing host. GREAT location. Accommodations were perfect. Quiet room, which I was surprised considering it's in such a great area of town. I would highly recommend Marika and her place and hope to be back there soon!
Marika's Place is just AMAZING! its well located, safe, clean. Honestly you won't find anything better than that. It is located just 1 min from metro Sevilia with each access to everything this town has to offer and only 5 min walk from La Condesa. There are many good and fairly cheap restaurants with home made mexican food (super tasty). But on top of that you will have a specious huge room with a huge bathroom, and leaning lady that comes at least 2/3 times a week. Marika is the BEST host one can have! Sweet, pleasant, helpful and friendly. No doubt you will enjoy your stay here.
Nice room. Nice flat. Nice area. Marika is friendly.
Marika's flat is cozy and in a super great location. She is a very gracious hostess and always willing to help. I highly recommend Casa Vera!
Marika's apartment is a perfect place to stay for anyone in Mexico City. The neighborhood is safe and within easy walking distance to the good bars in Roma and Condesa. Plus, really close to the subway. The apartment is comfortable and Marika is really pleasant to stay with!
Marika's apartment was beautiful. She was really easy and helpful with checkin. A great experience, when I'm back in Mexico City I will definitely stay here. Thanks for everything
Marika and Sebastian stayed with us a short while. We were able to accommodate them and they were great guests. They should be welcome anywhere.
Recibí a Marika, después de haber leído sus muy buenas referencias en Air bnb como Anfitriona. Puedo decirles que también es la huésped perfecta. Considerada, amable, ordenada, etc.
Un placer tenerla en casa!!
