Great location, the owner is very good at telling you about what there is to do in the area as well. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else but here.
Would definitely come back again.
This apartment was perfect for our 4 night 5 day stay in Mexico City. It was out first time visiting the city and we wanted to enjoy all that Mexico had to offer. The apartment was in a great safe neighborhood, walking distance to parks, restaurants, bars and stores. It was large, clean, well decorated and a very private. The court yard is just off the main alley and tucked behind a gated entry. This was peaceful and secluded. I would highly recommend this apartment, great value, well kept and great location. We hope to return again!
I've stayed in a number of Airbnb rentals and this is my favorite so far--a beautiful place in a great neighborhood. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Eric is really nice and very responsive if you have any questions during your stay.
Great place to stay in Mexico City. The location is excellent and the flat is both spacious and nice. Eric was very quick to respond and was available during my stay for enquiries. I highly recommend this flat when visiting Mexico City.
We stayed in Eric`s flat for two nights in January. The flat was clean and comfortable, and Eric was very accommodating.
The only problem we had was the taxi driver finding the place.
If you take a taxi tell the driver the flat is opposite the taxi stand at the cross streets of Durango and Guadalajara.
We had a great time in Erick's place. Great location and apartment. There we discovered that Condesa/Roma can be quiet at night :-) Erick and his wife were available when we had questions. We brought our 2 years old son who loved the place and the park nearby. Like other places in the neighborhood, water can run scarce at times, but we loved it overall.
Eric has really set the tone of what every airbnb host should strive to be. He welcomed at the flat with local breads, fruits and some cheese to have snacks in the house. This was my first time in Mexico city and while I had no agenda Eric greatly helped me to put one together and was available for questions, recommendations, etc for my entire stay. I am happy to now call Eric a friend and look forward to seeing him when he visits NY. If you need a place to stay this is it, the location, the host and everything in between is A+
Beautiful and peaceful apartment in a perfect location in Condesa Mexico City. Could not ask for more since it felt like home. The owners were extremely polite and everything worked smoothly.
We absolutely loved this place! It was spacious and modern.
The bed was extremely comfortable (the best of our whole trip) and we really enjoyed the location.
If you've ever been to other Latin American cities; this reminds me of Buenos Aires. The neighborhood was quaint and there are great restaurants within walking distance. Wonderful parks as well.
The kitchen and the bathroom were not well stocked with soaps/hand-soap, but otherwise, it was great!
Eric is a great host, he gave me lots of tips that definitely made my solo trip to DF more enjoyable than it otherwise could have been.
The apartment is nice, some drinks (water, beer, coffee, liquor) and fruit were provided.
Only minor complaint would be that the apartment was quite cold (I was there during a cold snap and it retains the cold - the apartment was colder than it was outside at most times). There is a space heater in the bedroom closet though!
I would stay in this apartment again, without question.
Thanks Kale. One important note to others: ALL flats in Mexico City have a heat problem and no central heating. We all suffer that during the 2-3 weeks of cold over xmas and this is why there is a thick blanket and a heater. (same thing happens to all my friends, at my own flat and my office).
