I loved this place. I didn't realize it at the time I booked, but it's a certified "passive house" (super high energy efficiency), which to me is really cool since I think it's the direction we need to go with home construction. It was constructed with minimal environmental impact in mind--and it's both simple and luxurious in a way. It has simple, modest furnishings, but also has a luxurious feel with the beautiful, flowering plant-covered terrace with views of the city.
It was very clean and well-appointed with everything that you need for your stay, including soaps, kitchen utensils, etc.
The modern apartment was constructed on the roof of an historic building, and you do need to climb four flights to the entry. I had no problem going up the stairs, but I am mildly afraid of heights and going down the spiral staircase at the top did give me a bit of vertigo each time.
The neighborhood is awesome. I really felt like a local staying in Roma Norte. It's close to the Cuauhtemoc metro station and the metrobus, so public transport is easy. It felt very safe there, day and night. I even found some great street food nearby (one location is fire-grilled hamburger stand just a block away at the corner of Morelia and Colima by Puskin Park--"Hamburguesas a la Parrilla"--the "Queso Pina con todo" (pineapple cheese with everything) was juicy and delicious). There are also some convenience stores nearby. I walked to the Reforma angel and the hip La Condesa neighborhood with no problem.
Overall excellent and very fun experience staying here. I am recommending to my friends and I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for your great review and suggestion. I'm glad you see the Passive House Standard as the direction we need to go with home construction.
And it's true, the hamburgers of Morelia and Colima are delicious and are best enjoyed on the terrace.
Alex was extremely helpful and very easy about our arrival time.
The flat was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet and spotlessly clean.
It was a real treat to sit on the terrace for breakfast and in the evening for a drink.
Our departure was so easy too, as he let us leave our bags until it was time to go to the airport.
I highly recommend this place .
Thank you for your comments and your observation, which I wished to solve in time.
Alex is a great host, very kind and ready to help his guests !
The appartment is lovely, so uncommon, it's worth visiting :)
the neighbourhood is lovely, ideally located in the middle of the major attractions of the city.
I had a wonderful stay at Alex's loft. I loved the area and felt quite safe wondering around and exploring the area on my own.
The stairs were a bit of a challenge with my huge suitcase but I managed.
I've not been able to respond sooner because unfortunately my purse was stolen at the Bus Station on my way to San Miguel with my tablet in it. ( and my passport , camera, money. Etc!!)
Anyhow. I can recommend Alex's loft for a single person or couple and it is a lovely spot. The deck is wonderful.
Colonia Roma very hip and comfortable. Lunch at Delirio on Obregon is lovely. Funky shops on Colima, plaza Rio de Janeirio has a great resto on the corner and behind it a cool coffee shop.
Perfect location and very nice apartment. Well furnished and pleasant terrace.
Alex is such an amazing host, he was so lovely and showed us around the apartment and had lots of of indormation on what to do in Mexico City.
The apartment was incredible! Such an amazing feel to it, it was a paradise. It is very private and in an good, safe area which enjoyable to walk around.
We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
An oasis in the middle of a bustling city! We very much enjoyed our stay at this fantastic place. You wake up to amazing views of the sun rising over the volcanoes in the distance and after a tiring day of activities you will appreciate having the terrace to relax, kick back and enjoy a nice drink.
Alex's loft kept all its promises. Very clean, functional, original, with a really nice terrace. The neighbourhood is extremely pleasant. Communicating with Alex was effective and easy. Thanks, we had a great stay!
We had an awesome stay at Alex's place. The apartment is wonderful and the area is great too! Would highly recommend :)
This was our second stay at Alex's and we loved it even more! Great apartment, plenty of room and fantastic terrace.
Great people: very polite, friendly and easy going.
