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?
