I stayed at Casa Tarami for about four months total. The studio is very calm and quiet, with lovely neighbours in other studios, great landlords, and lots to see in the neighbourhood. Really close to my favourite part of Mexico City - Chapultepec.
I stayed at Casa Tarami for three months while I was working in Mexico City as a journalist. The location and amenities are excellent. Colonia Cuauhtemoc is a relaxed, elegant neighborhood with a variety of restaurants, plazas and bars. The studios are very quiet and come with everything you need minus a washing machine - there are 2 lavanderias within a short walking distance. Overall the studio was well worth the money and I really enjoyed my stay.
Each room is equipped with a two burner mini stove top, a television with all the cable channels, wifi a bathroom, kitchen sink, utensils, and is furnished. One room can host a couple. This was the first place I have ever had access to the NFL network, so that was a refreshing tonic to alleviate any homesickness on weekends in the fall. Commentary in Spanish, (buen Tackleado!).
My fiancee (then girlfriend) and I stayed at Casa Tarami for near on 4 months, and enjoyed pretty much every second of it. The location is fantastic, near the financial and in the embassy district, it seemed that the residents of the area was a lot of young white collar families. There are historic sights and monuments within walking distance. Bosque de Chapultepec, Museo de Antropologia, la Diana... more if you get on the transit. Casa Tarami is a 9-15 minute walk to two different metro stops on the pink line, Insurgentes and Sevilla. Insurgentes also has a metro bus station, so the location makes it incredibly easy to explore all the colonias of Mexico City.
Enough small talk, the location, facilities and amenities are all fantastic, however, the people set this apart from any other renting experience. Katy and Gabriel are so sweet, kind and generous, and will practice Spanish with you no matter how bad you are, ask you if there is anything they can help with, and kindly call taxis any time you need one. They made us feel so very welcome, and it feels like staying with your cool aunt and uncle rather than renting.
Any questions, any issues, any concerns were rapidly cleared up. Katy even took us on a quick walking tour of the neighborhood, showing us the grocery and lavanderia for washing clothes.
In all honesty, I can not say enough positive things. I would recommend this to anyone looking for accomodations in DF, and more so if you are staying for an extended time.
-The whole economy is cash based, so expect to pay rent in cash (along with every other transaction in daily life).
-The metro is safe, but there are pick pockets so stay vigilant. Rush hour gets packed, expect to be pushed into a car.
-There are areas of the city that get grittier at night, this area is not one of them. Lots of finer dining oriented to satisfy businesspeople getting off work. Late night taco stands and Empanada spots (COMIChurro! is a favorite).
The only unresolved issue is, when can I go back?
I had a great time at Casa Tarami, I stayed for a month to study abroad and conduct field research. Great location, nearby market Superrama and little tienditas, shops, to help OXXO nearby its awesome!
For my own sake I hope not too many people find out about this place, so it doesn't become too hard to get into! Very nice in June 2010: excellent location, service, and price, and very pleasant hosts. Relaxed, pleasant, quiet, pretty, convenient; is as advertised and I really enjoyed my stay.
You can walk in this neighborhood at essentially any hour, and there are convenience stores open 24/7. There are many small cafes and restaurants, some quite inexpensive, and there is the Cine Lumiere Reforma, a worthy destination in and of itself. Large buses on Reforma will take you lots of places, and there are smaller buses with stops even closer, that take other routes (e.g. direct to Roma/Condesa, etc.).
A group of us, 4 couples , recently stayed at Casa Tarami for a week. We had come to Mexico City to enjoy the area and to be able to see much of the culture within the city and the surrounding areas. It was wonderful, rooms were as depicted if not better. The owners, Gabriel and Katy were enchanting and very helpful. The property was clean, well maintained and excellently situated . We enjoyed the surrounding restaurants, Asian, French, Brasilian, Argentenian, as well as Mexican of course... Our stay was not long enought. I will return..
