A bright and cozy studio, very illuminated with two floor to ceiling windows and two small outside-balconies. A small kitchen has all the necessary elements for a two- or four-person stay, so you can cook in, although great restaurants and tasty local kitchenettes are easily accessible nearby. Enjoy some leisure time on the roof garden, or take advantage of the literally dozens of museums within walking distance of the apartment. There is WiFi for catching up or for planning the next outing.
The apartment is a block away from Plaza Santo Domingo and the 18th century church of Santo Domingo (which started as a small temple in 1527), and two blocks from Mexico City s imposing Zócalo.
The view from the roof garden is beautiful, with the church cupolas a few meters away, while you grill some carne asada with friends, relax on chaises while you read a book or watch the sun set in the distance.
The building entrance has a person at the entrance 24/7 and CCTV on the outside.
Shared spaces include a Laundry Room, a Roof Garden with a reading area, a Gym, a grill (requires reservation with the local admin), and beautiful vistas of Downtown Mexico City
Apartment is on the fifth floor, elevator from the lobby. From the sidewalk you need to climb a few steps (not wheelchair accessible).
Please don t hesitate to ask for assistance during your stay, we respect your privacy and desire to be left alone, but if you need some help or guidance, we are available by phone. Languages, with different degrees of fluency (bear with us): ES, EN, FR, PO
The side-street is pedestrian and it takes you to a plaza with an 18th century church, and a contiguous plaza where you can sit with a modern-day scribe that can write a love letter to your better half, ask for forgiveness or just live the experience of having someone ghostwrite a postal letter that you can send home.
Two more blocks bring you to Mexico s Cathedral, the Zócalo, the Presidential residence and offices on one side and the city Mayor s offices on the other, the famous Portales, and on one corner the Templo Mayor, enough activities for a full day.
Next to the Cathedral you can take the Turibus, the CapitalBus and many other hop-on/hop-off options, or a bicitaxi that can take you anywhere within the Historic Center of Mexico City, including Bellas Artes a few blocks away or any of the tens of museums available in the area.
Have Breakfast at Café La Blanca (for locals), Churros el Moro (Delicious) or Café Tacuba (must do, arrive early); eat at any fonda, at Hostería de Santo Domingo (serving non-stop since 1860; try the traditional Chile en Nogada), or splurge at El Cardenal or La Ópera (look for a bullet hole in the roof, made by Pancho Villa). Stop for a sidewalk beer or coffe in Gante street.
There are tons of activities nearby for several days of activity, or you can venture further out to Reforma and Chapultepec, and visit the Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia, in front of the Zoo, or the Condesa-Roma corridor for a SOHOesque experience. If you re looking for high-end shopping, restaurants and night life, Polanco is right behind Reforma/Chapultepec, for that splurge experience you ve always wanted!
Walking is the preferred method of getting around (bring comfy shoes!), bicitaxi when you get tired (haggle, but not so much, it is, after all, muscle power) and Metro L2 (Allende, Zócalo and Pino Suárez are within the Centro Histórico).
For longer trips, Metro (L1, L2, L3, L8), or Cabify or Uber (not the best, but better than the local taxis) for purpose trips, and Turibus and CapitalBus for sightseeing trips.
