About the property

Villa, 6 suites, 16 pers., sturdy construction, centrally located

This is a magnificent dwelling conformed by 6 comfortable, spacious and totally independent units, and other out-of-the-ordinary common lively spaces, in a super centric & accesible area, with all kinds of services at your fingertips. The 1-level (+basement) construction is sturdy and strong, with 40-centimeters-wide walls, which makes it a very safe place for our guests.

This is the ideal place to harbor large groups of people that travel together yet desire their privacy at certain moments during their stay: big families, families or couples traveling together, or corporate executives that travel together but wish to rest in their own private space. The maximum capacity of this villa is 16 persons.

The main construction of the villa is divided into 5 separate units, four 1-bedroom suites on the main floor, and a 5th one on the basement. Each suite features the following amenities:


*King-size bed w/ lavish bedclothes

*Wall mounted smart TV


*Iron & ironing board


*Great water pressure shower



*Upholstered living room furniture

*4-6 Place dining table

*Four of the suites include a futon in the living room that turns into a full-size bed.

The 6th accommodation is a studio located in the back of the property. It is a single room with a king-size bed, closet, wall-mounted tv, fully-equipped kitchenette, 2-place eating table, 2 upholstered chairs, and a full bathroom w/ shower.

The villa features splendid spaces to make our guests´stay even more comfortable and enjoyable. During their stay, our guests will be able to relax in the ROOF GARDEN, gather and "hang out" in the appealing LOBBY (especially in a rainy afternoon), catch up with work in the OFFICE (equipped with a printer for the use of our guests), and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a snack in the company of other travel companions or a good book in any of our two PATIOS.

It also features a LAUNDRY ROOM equipped with 2 electrical washer/dryers for the use of all our guests.

This is a staffed property from 9am - 6pm from Mon - Fri, and from 9am - 1pm on Saturdays, which allows us to solve any maintenance matter immediately.

(From Nov. 14 - 17, the villa will be available only with the 5 suites included, to lodge up to 14 guests. The Single´s Studio will not be vacant. Please inquire or check out the notes in the Rates Section.)

Why Jorge & Monnah chose Escandón

This is a Haven in the heart of one of the busiest cities in the world.

What makes this house unique

One huge advantage for your travel agenda is our location. You can have everything you need during your visit within a short walking distance, and won’t believe how easy it is to move in and out this centrally located area where there’s no place in the city too far to reach out.

In our area there are 2 subway stations, 2 metros stations, 2 Eco-bici stations (bike rentals), and 1 E-conduce station (scooter rentals. If you prefer to move around in a taxi, we strongly suggest the use of private units. We have included the telephone number of a Elite, a private cab company in our Service Guide. You can also download the UBER or CABIFY applications in your cell phone so that you can request this service at any time anywhere in the city. Cabs pick you up at the property in 10 minutes or so and securely deliver you to exact place where you wish to go.

We are also walking distance to the SW limit of La Condesa and minutes away by car from Polanco and La Roma, so you will be quite close to all the main city attractions like Reforma Ave., Chapultepec Park and Castle, the museums area, the zoo, and much more.

Our guests simply cannot believe how easy it is to go to and from our neighborhood to any other point in the city!

P.S. We suggest our guests, especially those who are visiting Mexico City for the first time, to take the hop on - hop off Turibus. it is an easy and quick way to get a general overview and see the most representative spots in the city.

When we got there we were received by Gabriela, so kind and informative.

Really nice neighborhood to walk around with great restaurants we tried out just blocks away. Metro was close by and by taxi your 8 miles from airport .

Thank You Jorje and Monnah. We will return.
