OWNER's DETAILS / SPOKEN LANGUAGES
French citizen / independent consultant living in Mexico City. Fluent in French, Spanish, English and Italian.
I live only 2 blocks away and can be reached at anytime.
Fully equipped kitchen with some of key ingredientes ready for use. Two coffee machines (and coffee!), orange juice maker and more.
Very much so - both via text, email before and during the stay. I also tend to personally greet them whenever possible (outside office hours) and give my personal tips.
NOTE: See my guidebook for all local tips and favourites.
it's green, quiet, walkable, a lot of nice places to eat and very practical as everything is close by: food stores, market, supermarket, pastry shops, metro stations to name only a few. I actually live 2 blocks away
8 minutes walk to the metro station. There's a taxi stand just in front and also a fun place to go to Roma and close to the centre with an electric bus.
o A very pleasant neighbourhood with a lot of green spaces and ideal for walks.
o 3 minutes walk to the PARQUE ESPANA and 10 minutes to the PARQUE MEXICO
o One of the best "on wheel market" (PACHUCA) every Tuesday 2 blocks away
o Organic shop, supermarket, butcher, corner shop and local cafes within 1 km radius
o Main Metro stations (SEVILLA, INSURGENTES, CHAPULTEPEC) 10 minutes away
o Private TAXIs (SITIO) available across the street
o Free Cycle scheme (ECO BICI) on the street corner along with bike rentals some blocks down.
To reach the flat from the airport or bus stations, just take an "authorised taxi" which will be around 200 pesos and say you're going to ROMA NORTE. You tell the taxi driver it is "una cerrada sobre GUADALAJARA, entre DURANGO y COLIMA justo en frente de un sitio de taxi"
The area is perfect for public transport - the PINK line (Chapultepec and Sevilla stops) are 7 minutes away walking.
On some occasions, guests have complained about the noise upstairs from my neighbour. I cannot do much about it as she wakes up early and the isolation is at times disturbing. I leave earplugs just in case it disturbs some others.
Because of the quietness and close vicinity of other flat owners, please refrain from having parties or loud music beyond decent hours and levels.
o Water supply: we manage water tanks / supply manually to avoid spillage. Please particular care with the water and also make sure the toilet flush goes back to its original position as it sometimes may stay a little bit tilted towards the bottom
o Do not hang any clothes / towels over the balcony.
o Trash needs to be split between ORGANIC and NON Organic - you are provided with two bins, a small and bigger one. Both are to be left in bins with the doorman.
o Smoking is permitted only on the balcony.
o Take particular care with the traditional tiles from Oaxaca as they are very porous and stains come immediately
o Particular care should be taken with towels when using special creams or cleaning products as it often stains them and need to be replaced.
It's tough to give much better praise than what the scores of other reviewers have already done. Eric's place is absolutely wonderful! We stayed for 6 nights and found everything to be pretty much perfect.
For us, the location was the top priority. This flat is situated within 5-10 minutes walk to numerous restaurants and parks. You will live like a local here. Then, when we needed to get to Coyoacan, Centro Historico, etc., the two Metro stations on the Pink line is also under 10 minutes away. We utilized the Sitio stand in front for our longer journeys to the Norte and Sur bus terminals. I was also amazed at how quiet and peaceful the flat and neighborhood was. There is no noise or distraction.
The apartment itself is incredibly spacious, new, fresh, and comfortable. The bed is soft and firm and we slept soundly each night. We bought provisions for breakfast and cooked there each morning. It was convenient and great way to save some money. I recommend the Superama on Eric's map, it had everything we needed.
We are definitely planning on come back to Mexico City and we will stay with Eric again. Looking forward to it! Thanks!
A fantastic spot, in a great location in my favorite D.F. neighborhood. The space was a perfect pied á terre for entering into the life of the city. Clean, comfortable, easy. Highly recommend!
This flat is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. The flat is clean and neat and the kitchen has all the essentials. The flat is just a short walk away from all the bars and restaurants. Eric was a wonderful host and allowed us to drop off our luggage earlier than check in, as our flight arrived very early. He was easy to contact and accommodating. The doorman Luis is kind and gives you an extra sense of security in this already safe neighborhood. My only regret was that I did not book with Eric my entire trip.
My friend and I stayed at Eric's rental apartment for one week. While finding the place was a little difficult (even with the help of a local) we were pleasantly surprised once we did to see how nice of a area it's in. The apartment is very nice and centrally located in a great neighborhood. Having the taxi stand nearby was a huge Benefit and helped us out quiet a few times. We have no real complaints with your experience, except the noise from the upstairs neighbor which woke us up every morning. We read in the apartments description that this was a previous issue with other guests, thus we expected it to some degree. Aside from that, it's a great place to stay
Eric was an amazing host! His place is very well located in between the Condesa and Roma areas of Mexico City, near everything - restaurants, bars, museums, you name it! The apartment had everything we needed and the loft-like feel and private balcony facing a serene inner courtyard were especially appreciated. I would definitely come back to Eric's apartment the next time I visit Mexico City.
Eric's apartment in Mexico City was exactly as described, in such a great neighborhood in such a great city. I loved the apartment and I will definitely be staying at this same apartment in the future. Quiet, clean, comfortable. And in a charming neighborhood close in proximity to everything I wanted to do. Thanks Eric.
We loved this flat! It was in a perfect location with many restaurants, shops and parks within walking distance. And it had all of the amenities we needed: a very comfortable bed, a nice hot shower and coffee.
I wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to come back soon!
A proposito dell'host, Eric
French nationality but grew up in Mexico and now back after many years in Europe. I work in technology within the Music industry and run a small music festival and record shop in Mexico City.
Love my food hence the recommendations I can provide for guests staying a few days. I only live 3 blocks away from the flat so I'm very much available.
