Situated in Colonia San Miguel Chapultepec it is in the center of mayor activity, comercial and cultural areas in Mexico City. Comercial Zone Polanco, Cultural and Gastronomic Condesa, Night Live Colonia Roma, are just 10 minutes away by car. Cultural Coyoacán, Old Town San Ángel and Zocalo Old Quarter are just 20 minutes away either by taxi or Subway. Subway (Juanacatlán) is a block away and so are a couple coffee shops, deli market, street tacos, tortas and Sanborn´s Mexican Food Chain. Supermarket is three blocks away. It is full of trees, safe and carries a tranquil environment. It maintains the old spirit with specialized shops all around. There are 3 coffee shops in the surrounding blocks. Juice stand, quesadillas stand and a Deli shop with vegan food and small production beer and wine shop. The market is a few blocks away, where one can eat or buy groceries. Supermarket is a few blocks away as well. The Chapultepec Park is a few blocks away and so is the Castle and Museum... definitely a touristic attraction.

About León Martí
Hello, I´ve been studying and working abroad for a long time and just recently came back to my home 'town' Mexico City. I lived in Cancun, Madrid, Munich, Akumal and Connecticut. I am really happy to be back home and working on audiovisual productions, which turned from my hobby into my job. Although I don´t have a big family we balance it out with a lot of friends. I am currently using my spare time to travel through Mexico and get to know my Country better.
León Martí purchased this Apartment in 1975
Why León Martí chose San Miguel Chapultepec
This property was acquired by my parents and passed down to me. I was born on this property so I do have a lot of love for it. As years went by and the city grew I was fortunate that San Miguel Chapultepec got to be one of the most beautiful residential areas and in one of the best places, since around it, many neighborhoods like Polanco, Condesa and Roma got really popular. San Miguel Chapultepec kept its quiet residential mood and it´s green surroundings. Take a look at the satellite picture.
What makes this Apartment unique
The best thing the apartment has is the beautiful panoramic view to Castillo de Chapultepec and it´s high ceiling ample spaces.

Best View Ever!
Every year we take our nieces and nephews on vacation over Spring Break. This year was Mexico City. What a spectacular place for a fun exploration of Mexico City. The apartment is huge--with a fantastic open living room surrounded by glass--great views of Chapultepec and the skyscrapers of Polanco. There is also an outdoor patio. The neighborhood is quiet even though it is so centrally located. No need for a car as the metro station (easy connection to Centro Historic) is only one block away, Condesa (great restaurants) is only a ten-minute walk away, and Polanco (great shopping and restaurants) is only a twenty-minute walk away. The afternoons were spent in the apartment watching the rain, lightening, and thunder storms--what a perfect perch! The place is safe, clean, and very comfortable. We are planning our next visit already!
Best place I have ever stayed! Beautiful, sunny & central; phenomenal host!
I wish I could give six stars! Leon & co were the most wonderfully helpful hosts and the apartment was absolutely perfect. We had a group visiting from all over the United States in Mexico City for four days; Leon helped us organize a day trip to Teotihuacan with a fantastic guide/driver (and flexible departure time!), provided introductions for a home-made dinner in the apartment, and was all around a responsive and lovely host. The apartment itself is absolutely stunning; it's decorated with beautiful pieces of art and has the most amazing sun rise views (the wall of windows is incredible). Highly, highly recommend this place and would absolutely love to return. Thank you Leon!
You guys are wonderful. Thank you Melissa for your kindness and joy.
We had a wonderful family visit to Mexico City and this apartment was a wonderful base. Close to the Chapultepec park, and the sites therein, we could walk easily to the park and enjoyed that freedom with 3 boys in tow. Also located near a metro stop which was terrific. We used Uber or the metro with ease.
The apartment was kept clean by a lovely housekeeper, and we easily used the well-appointed kitchen. The apartment was one flight of stairs up from the 6th floor elevator stop, and with the height you could see Chapultepec Castle and the many tree canopies just below. The sense of openness was lovely after returning from a day out exploring, the various windows opened easily to allow the breeze to cool the apartment after sunny daytime weather. With our kids, the washing machine and dryer were also very useful! And easy to operate. My kids loved the big beds, and the corner store.
In sum, a unique place, very convenient and would highly recommend.
Ideal location for a family visit to Mexico City
Traveling with my wife and three teenage daughters, we have stayed at HomeAway properties across the United States and around the world. We have never stayed anywhere better than this penthouse apartment. The wide open common space, with wonderful views of the Bosque de Chapultepec, is conducive to gathering and relaxing together. One evening we shut out the lights and watched a thunderstorm roll over the city. Wonderful art and decorations adorn all the rooms. The three bedrooms are private and comfortable, the kitchen and three bathrooms clean and functional.
The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of key sights like the Museo Nacional de Antropología and the Castle of Chapultepec National Museum of History, and easy taxi or Uber distance of everything else. There are convenience stores for drinks and small items within a block or two, and supermarkets within 15 minutes walk.
Arrangements with the owner were simple and straightforward, and the housekeeper who visited midweek was helpful, even with some of our laundry. A private security guard is always on duty, which makes coming and going easy and safe.
We were interested in a trip to the pyramids of Teotihuacan, and the owner suggested Marlene Ehrenberg (http://www.marlene-ehrenberg.com.mx/mapa-ing.htm), who studied archaeology and once worked at the site. A great suggestion which made for an informative and memorable day.
The penthouse apartment is located on the seventh floor, and the elevator reaches the sixth floor, so climbing one flight of stairs is necessary. Within the apartment, a step or two separate some of the living areas. The wifi works well.
Thank you very much for your stay and your recommendation.
I´m really glad you had a great time and an informative tour.
Welcome back anytime.
Best regards and wishes.
Wunderbare Tage in Mexico D.F.
Das Appartement ist einfach ein Traum. Wir genossen die Aussicht über einen Teil der Stadt (vom Esstisch aus sieht man sogar das Schloss von Chapultepec) vor allem auch in der Nacht mit all den wunderbaren Lichtern. Das Appartement ist genau wie beschrieben, sauber und sehr geräumig. Wir, als 5 köpfige Familie fanden alle unseren Lieblingsplatz. Dona Inez ist sehr hilfreich und kam 2x die Woche. Sie hat uns auch einmal ein mexikanisches Frühstück gemacht und Reis gekocht damit wir einen Vorrat hatten. Vom Appartement aus kann man zu Fuss die interessanten Bezirke Condesa und Roma erkunden (die geführten Touren mit dem Tram sind sehr interessant) und gute Restaurants entdecken. Wir fuhren mit der U-Bahn nach Polanco und auch zum Zocalo und dem historischen Zentrum. Wir können einen Aufenthalt in dieser sehr interessanten Stadt nur empfehlen und natürlich auch das tolle Appartement von Leon. Schade, konnten wir ihn nicht persönlich kennen lernen aber er hat uns auch via Telefon sehr geholfen.
Thank you very much Denisse. I just have to say I am very happy that you had a great time and I´m really thankfull to have beautiful people like yourself come and enjoy Mexico City. Have a great time back home and perhaps we´ll meet next time!
Location, location, location
Location by the park (Chapultepec) gave us great access to the castle and museum, plus the plush greenery in a major metropolitan center.
Location in the neighborhood with an Oxxo corner shop and other smalls stores nearby, plus a subway stop (Juanacatlán) down a lighted street three blocks away was a bonus. We were fit enough for the six block walk to Soriana (grocery store) and back home with groceries. The apartment has an elevator for the first six flights but the last one is on stairs, easy. Some of our sturdy crew eschewed the elevator for stairs down and up most of the time. Esperanza pasteleria and bakery was a great find for savory sandwiches on the eastern point of the Bosque (by Metro Chapultepec), although for sweet pan dulce we preferred the bakery just past the metro stop on José Vasconcelos.
The location also meant a straight subway shot to downtown and easy walks to the Roma and Condesa neighborhoods.
Appointments in the home were great for us to cook three or four nights during the week, and beds were firm but comfortable enough for our crew. Leon was very easy to do business with and quickly responded when we had questions in booking.
San Miguel Chapultepec is becoming one of the top residential areas to live in. Next to Chapultepec´s Park and full with trees, this tranquil neighborhood is an oasis in the middle center of mayor activity, commercial and cultural areas in Mexico City. Commercial Zone Polanco, Cultural and Gastronomic Condesa, Night Live Colonia Roma and Reforma Av. are just 10 minutes away by car or 20 minute walk. Cultural Coyoacán, Old Town San Ángel and Zocalo Old Quarter are just 20 minutes away either by car or Subway. Subway is a block away and so are a couple coffee shops, breakfast and panini restaurants, Deli shop, street tacos, tortas and Sanborn´s Mexican Food Chain. Soriana Supermarket is an 8 minute walk and Superama Supermarket can be delivered at home.
