The location was perfect, walking distances to some good restaurants, the City Market and a short uber ride to the sights of Mexico City! The condo was comfortable and had many of the amenities needed to make a vacation relaxing and homey!
Jose Eduardo (owner) was so helpful and took care of the needs we had, like Netflix! And, the doorman was always gracious and courteous.
The location of this rental couldn't be better. It's right beside a beautiful park with many great restaurants and coffee shops close by as well as a fine foods market one block away. Close by are the Roma and Condesa colonias as well as fun Coyoacan. A short walk will get you to nearest subway and metro bus as well as Parque Hundido and busy Insurgentes Avenue. The apartment is spacious and secure with all amenities available and is family-friendly with a large living and dining room and four bathrooms. Jose Eduardo, the owner, is easygoing and attentive and the doorman is very kind and helpful!
To start, I would like to state that Pepe, the owner of the Private Sanctuary in Del Valle, was always friendly, responded to calls on time and was willing to accommodate our needs in a very professional manner, even when I asked for a special pillow! :-)
The apartment is very nice, clean and spacious; it is well furnished and with all the amenities a traveler would desire. The kitchen had all the necessary things to prepare a simple or a more complicated meal. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which was excellent quarters for our family of 3 adult couples. My only suggestion would be for the single bed bedroom to have at least a double size bed. Water was never an issue, plenty and warm. The building is also very safe with a security person at the front desk to make sure that no stranger gets into the building. This security staff was always very friendly, helpful and polite. In front of the building there is a Seven 11 store for last minute shopping and even with a cash machine.
Being the first time in Mexico City for our adult children and their partners, having a central location was essential; in fact, after getting to know for the first couple of days our neighborhood, which is in a very nice and safe area of the city, ‘the kids' (our young adults) explored in the evenings for a restaurant or a walk on their own, moving around with basic Spanish language skills.
It is within walking distance of Av. Insurgentes (the longest avenue in Mexico City); centrally located between the city's downtown and Polanco areas, and the south of the city (San Angel and Coyoacán). Around the apartment there are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream and dessert parlors, and of course, all kinds of taquerías... the delight of our family!
We were within walking distance of a large park where the young adults went for morning walks, in addition to the Tlacoquemecatl Park and church beside the apartment for a quick walk in the evening. Every Friday, an interesting tianguis market takes place on the grounds of the Tlacoquemecatl Park with many shopping options, from fresh vegetables and fruits, meats and more, as well as clothes, crafts and all kinds of other shopping.
Other services such as supermarket, pharmacies and laundromats are also within walking distance. I should not forget to mention that at the park, there is also a sitio of taxis. Now, how handy is that?!!
In summary, with our stay at Private Sanctuary in Del Valle we got what we desired and more. I will not only highly recommend this venue to others, but we are considering making this venue our home-away-from-home when we visit Mexico City again.
