The apartment is an old 18th century building which has been retrofitted with electricity, etc. It is a beautiful escape from the city and within walking distance to Zocalo, Palacio de Bellas Artes, El Templo Mayor, etc. The owner provides information about the local amenities...More

About the neighbourhood
The Centro Historico is up and running, though vibrant it is statistically the safest neighborhood in the City, it is named after its historical position and its colonial period buildings and monuments, like the main plaza Zocalo, the Templo Mayor pyramids, the Murals, the Torre Latinoamericana, and some of Mexico’s finest historic and contemporary museums. Clean and safe, close to grocery stores and great places to eat out, like the gourmet market of San Juan, traditional Mexican and International restaurants and taquerias/cantinas, all budgets. Enjoy a morning run or night walk in the recently restored Alameda park.
Getting around
Two blocks away to major transportation systems like the Metrobus and the Subway to move around the city to the airport, bus stations and other neighbouring colonias such as Condesa, Roma, Polanco and Coyoacan.
From the airport: I recommend a Taxi (20USD and 40 min) an alternative is public transit, Metrobus, stop Bellas Artes then 5 min walk (4USD per person and 35 min), which is clean, fast and new.
To Condesa and Roma Metrobus or taxi: 25 minute ride there and vice versa.
To Coyoacan and Bus terminals: Subway different direct lines.
To Reforma (financial district): 20 minute walk by the Alameda park and up and down the avenue with the bus or subway.
Teotihuacan pyramids: Direct Tramway to bus station and then bus to the pyramids
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Benito Juarez International airport: 3.0 km

It usually takes about 1.5 hours from landing to the house and about 1 hour from bus stations. Please as you know your arrival details share them with me in order to organize your check in.
Checking in: I usually wait for you in the small coffee next to the main entrance, sometimes I am not available to greet you, but will ask a friend (most likely my friend Janeth or Victor) to expect you at the main door of building. (If no one is there please dial 7 on the intercom, we might be finalizing details in the apartment for your stay).
