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.

Warm and welcoming as well as a beautiful home away from home
We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was large with beautiful views from the deck, living and dining areas, and the apartment is located in a peaceful and accessible neighborhood. We were a group of 7 professional women in our late 30s and 40s celebrating a friend's birthday, and we felt not only safe but completely relaxed during our time. There was plenty of room for all and Leon Martin was very easy to work with. He even set up an amazing, sweet and welcoming cook to make your stay even better. Highly recommended by all in our group!
Unique penthouse with fantastic location
This property is a one-of-a-kind with spectacular views and charm in what we found to be a perfect location. Overlooking the jewel of the immense Chapultepec Park with its castle (a destination in itself) , looking north to (among others) the BBVA Bancomer tower, the 4th largest skyscraper in the city, with its innovative nightly light display and architectural design. The kitchen was fully stocked and we used it much, though street vendors with tasty tacos and tamales were just steps away. We went everywhere in the city, plus walked much locally, and this was the perfect base. The neighborhood is charming, and the building is secure, yet muy friendly.
We wanted to give this property five stars, but dropped it one because the interior needs attention and linens were sparse (sheets, too). The pivoting windows, one of the major charms of the place with its window wall, means no screens are possible, and at the time of year of our visit, two of our seven group members ended up with pretty visible and itchy mosquito bites.
Leon is great to deal with and matched us with top-drawer tourism services, and Dona Ines provided wonderful welcoming and cleaning service. She can also cook and wash clothes for a fee upon request, in addition to her normal support services.
We'd be happy to go back, and found it to be a great value.
The place was beautiful
I was there with my family and we had a great time. The neighborhood was very safe feeling. The front guards were there to greet us and alway ready to open the door. We ended up either walking to the park or calling an Uber.
The apartment had the wonderful views of the park.
We would stay there again.
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.
