Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have recently returned from a 6 night stay at Bruce's condo. Everything was as promised - an airport pickup, a cell phone to use while there, a full-sized washer and dryer, a dishwasher, a George Foreman grill...what more could I ask for?? The location is perfect, near Bellas artes, Alameda Central, several restaurants and bakeries, and a metro stop.



I have to say that we did not find the area noisy at night at all, as did a previous reviewer. There was a barking rooftop dog across the street, but he (thankfully) stopped around 10 pm.



I would not necessarily describe the condo as "luxury" or "plush", but if you're looking for a place to stay in a great location, with great amenities, and excellent service, then look no further.

Great Apartment for a Great Mexico City Vactaion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bruce's apartment for 7 days in July, and found it to have a perfect location, terrific value, and wonderful customer service. Bruce has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into making the rental experience pleasant and positive, including complimentary airport pickup, helpful check-in service, two passkeys to the safe and modern condominium with 24-hour doorman, and a free phone to reach him or one of the Holiday Rentals Mexico staff at any time. And I can't say enough nice things about Ricardo, our incredible and knowledgeable personal tour guide to the Teotihuacan Archeological Site and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe! Spending our first full day (a Monday) with Ricardo was the perfect way to kick off an exhilarating week exploring this fascinating and fun city. The apartment itself is cozy, but has absolutely everything you need, including excellent Wi-Fi, high-quality appliances, a clean, uncluttered layout, and a wide 12th floor balcony that gives an impressive view over the city.

My don't-miss suggestions for Mexico City are: (1) see Los Pyramides with Ricardo as your tour guide; (2) don't miss the famous Chapultepec Castle and Museo Nacional de Antropologia; (3) get down to Xochimilco to the Museo Dolores Olmedo (a beautiful 16th century mansion with the best Diego Rivera collection in the world) and take a canal ride of the colorful trajineras; and (4) go right next door from the apartment to the Museo de Arte Popular, a wonderful small museum of Mexican folk art. And get to as many of the tremendous markets around town as possible. We visited the Ciudadela Artisan's Market, the intense wholesale food Mercado de la Merced, and the Mercado Insurgentes, for best deals on jewelry, silver, and home wares. We used the Metro and walked quite a bit, but it's a big city: put the Uber app on your phone and use it! Rides are insanely inexpensive!

Why don't more Americans come to Mexico City for vacation? It is a world-class city, and checks all the boxes -- delicious food, great weather, vibrant culture, fascinating history, excellent value for your money, and lovely, generous people. And Bruce's wonderful apartment is the perfect home base from which to create your own wonderful Mexico City memories.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with all the amenities. It was fully equipped including a washer and dryer. There was plenty of seating for eating and for watching TV. And it offered a great view. The apartment was close to everything. Restaurants. Shopping and sites, all within walking distance. We especially liked the the fact that they were there to meet us at the airport. Ricardo was very helpful and informative. We most definitely would recommend it to our friends. We really enjoyed our stay.

GREAT Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a GREAT experience and an awesome vacation at Mexico City. We stayed at Bruce's place for 7 nights and I highly recommend this place. The building was clean, safe, and the location is very convenient to everything. My kids, my husband, and I loved this place. It was our first time visiting Mexico City and there are just too many things to do that we didn't get to do everything we wanted to do but we definitely want to go back again and we'll definitely stay at Bruce's place again. My kids got to enjoy the pool every night and we felt 100% safe in the building. This place was definitely beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

I very recommended this apartment for people who go to Mexico DF for work or adventure, it is in heart of the city, everything is around and closer: good restaurants, theaters, museums, markets and the metro; Juarez station is 4 blocks from the apartment. The area is secure we did not have any incident and we felt secure, save and comfortable.

Bruce, is an excellent owner, the services that he provide are first class, we are very happy for our experience and he really complain our expectations. Thank you.

Wonderful Mexico City Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bruce's place for 7 nights. This place is clean, comfortable, safe and very convenient to everything. This is so much better and cheaper than staying in a hotel.The building's amenities were very good but we didn't get a chance to use them. There are just too many things to do in MC. We would love to come back and I would recommend Bruce's properties to my friends. His customer service is excellent.

I brought 2 19 yr. olds and a 21 yr. old college girls.I never felt uncomfortable walking with them everywhere. There are 2 metro stations close by, riding the metro is easy and cheap. Just try to avoid them on rush hour or have a game plan in case you get separated. We bought food from Gloria, Ricon and the bakeries across the street (Independencia Blvd). We find that the cheapest water is from the Bodega on Juarez. Skip the small bottled water, you save so much buying the 10L ones. We cautiously tried as much of the food like Al pastor,suadero,pozzole, the churros and hot chocolate at El Morro. We miss them!

Bruce recommended Ricardo for day trips. He's very good and he speaks English. I would also recommend him. He is full of information. If there are 4 of you, let Ricardo drive you rather than use Turibus.

There are so many museums to visit and we only had a chance to see 3. The one for popular arts is just a building away. We enjoyed that. Watch the Ballet Folklorico, pay for the cheapest -300 pesos. Right before curtain time, if its not sold out you could be asked to move closer for just a few more pesos.

Museums are free on Sundays (wish we have that in Houston) and you might be discouraged from going because it will be crowded. However, we didn't mind the crowd. It was a fun time to people watch, lots of vendors, lots of yummy food to smell and maybe try. We found the people to be very friendly, warm and patient. Trying to speak a few words of Spanish makes a big difference. We know that this is a place we would visit again!

Perfect location, excellent service

  • 5 of 5

The room is clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Not only did it include fast wifi and TV with numerous English and Spanish channels, Bruce also provided a cell phone for our stay! The condo building has a nice gym and a lap pool and is located in the downtown area near several restaurants. It is also within walking distance of a good shopping district. We did find the master bed very firm but I'm sure this may be a positive for several travelers. The second bed is less firm for those who appreciate a softer sleep. Overall we give this condo a strong review and recommendation!
