My husband and I have recently returned from a 6 night stay at Bruce's condo. Everything was as promised - an airport pickup, a cell phone to use while there, a full-sized washer and dryer, a dishwasher, a George Foreman grill...what more could I ask for?? The location is perfect, near Bellas artes, Alameda Central, several restaurants and bakeries, and a metro stop.
I have to say that we did not find the area noisy at night at all, as did a previous reviewer. There was a barking rooftop dog across the street, but he (thankfully) stopped around 10 pm.
I would not necessarily describe the condo as "luxury" or "plush", but if you're looking for a place to stay in a great location, with great amenities, and excellent service, then look no further.
We stayed at Bruce's place for 7 nights. This place is clean, comfortable, safe and very convenient to everything. This is so much better and cheaper than staying in a hotel.The building's amenities were very good but we didn't get a chance to use them. There are just too many things to do in MC. We would love to come back and I would recommend Bruce's properties to my friends. His customer service is excellent.
I brought 2 19 yr. olds and a 21 yr. old college girls.I never felt uncomfortable walking with them everywhere. There are 2 metro stations close by, riding the metro is easy and cheap. Just try to avoid them on rush hour or have a game plan in case you get separated. We bought food from Gloria, Ricon and the bakeries across the street (Independencia Blvd). We find that the cheapest water is from the Bodega on Juarez. Skip the small bottled water, you save so much buying the 10L ones. We cautiously tried as much of the food like Al pastor,suadero,pozzole, the churros and hot chocolate at El Morro. We miss them!
Bruce recommended Ricardo for day trips. He's very good and he speaks English. I would also recommend him. He is full of information. If there are 4 of you, let Ricardo drive you rather than use Turibus.
There are so many museums to visit and we only had a chance to see 3. The one for popular arts is just a building away. We enjoyed that. Watch the Ballet Folklorico, pay for the cheapest -300 pesos. Right before curtain time, if its not sold out you could be asked to move closer for just a few more pesos.
Museums are free on Sundays (wish we have that in Houston) and you might be discouraged from going because it will be crowded. However, we didn't mind the crowd. It was a fun time to people watch, lots of vendors, lots of yummy food to smell and maybe try. We found the people to be very friendly, warm and patient. Trying to speak a few words of Spanish makes a big difference. We know that this is a place we would visit again!
The room is clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Not only did it include fast wifi and TV with numerous English and Spanish channels, Bruce also provided a cell phone for our stay! The condo building has a nice gym and a lap pool and is located in the downtown area near several restaurants. It is also within walking distance of a good shopping district. We did find the master bed very firm but I'm sure this may be a positive for several travelers. The second bed is less firm for those who appreciate a softer sleep. Overall we give this condo a strong review and recommendation!
I really liked this apartment! It is in an excellent location (really, it doesn't get any better), the apartment was very clean and had an amazing view, and the customer service we received exceeded all other apartments we've rented. From the pickup from the airport, to the tour of the apartment, property and the neighborhood (which I really appreciated), and the added perk of a cell phone, we highly recommend this apartment!
The apartment was just great. really comfortable with a great location in a very secure area of Mexico City. The service provided by Bruce and his assistants was incredible. 110% Recommended.a
Superb location, great amenities, excellent service by Bruce and his partners. Quite nice to have ample space (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) for a week’s stay. Excellent deal. 100% recommended.
A small but cozy apartment in the historical center; walking distance from a lot of attractions and several metro stations.
The only problem for me was street noise, but Mexico city is a very noisy city, so I guess it will be noisy almost everywhere in the center.
