This beautiful apartment is in a 16th century former Monastery run by the Dominicans built right over the Palace of Cuauhtemoc, right in the core of the Centro Historico. It's a peaceful enclave (where you can't hear any traffic) just 50 yards from Plaza Santa Domingo and less than five minutes walk from the Zocalo - the main central square.
The apartment has been beautifully restored with original stripped wood floors and colour washed plaster walls and is on the second floor of the building which is arranged around a courtyard. Most of the residents of the 34 apartments are Mexican families so you will get a real flavour of life in Mexico City. The second floor is reached by a flight of wide stairs.
Two of the bedrooms have views across the Leandro Valle to the bell tower of Santo Domingo Church. One of the bedrooms looks onto a smaller internal courtyard.
