A splendid early 20th Century flat, resembling more a small elegant house, with an independent entrance through a gated private pedestrian street, full of gardens. It is situated in Mexico City's first building to house apartments, the historical Edificio del Buen Tono (also known as La Mascota).
The ideal place for an unforgettable stay in Mexico, either on holidays or for a longer period. It is an oasis in the middle of a very busy city. A place where you can relax, enjoy it and rest, and at the same time will offer you all the amenities and interest of one of the biggest cities in the world.
The flat has all the original features, has two bedrooms, living room, a beautiful dining room, a superb traditional kitchen, a charming patio and rustically-furnished cellars where you can enjoy a bit of cool in the hot spring and summer.
Located almost within walking distance of the Historic Centre, the famous Zona Rosa neighborhood, just south of the most beautiful avenue in the City, the Paseo de la Reforma. It is an ideal place for culture (the National Library, main Craft market, and Palace of Fine Arts are all nearby) and night life (with cafes, restaurants, discos and the gay quarter over in the Zona Rosa).

(I am posting the first part of a beautiful comment from one of our guests:)"I have told the story of my stay in Casa Gardenia countless times and yet I am only beginning to know it. With each telling I find lacing through my words new threads of memory I must follow back to their source. Casa Gardenia is a living place. You will not find it, like so many lodgings, merely a location to set your bags in. It will become part of your destination. You will want to explore it just as you would any street in the heart of Mexico City. Perhaps, like us, you will stroll slowly through the rooms and along the terrace stopping often to touch, to open, and to admire. Or, you might be walking from one room to another and suddenly find your progress halted by some previously unnoticed object caught by the corner of your eye. You will contemplate many layers of Gardenia’s history while there, then after you return home uncover others you hadn’t even considered, ones that reveal themselves only through the echoes of rumination. That is what happened to each of us." (Please read the second part in a different comment)
