Travel Blogs from Mexico City
... br> Here is a breakdown of the weather in Mexico City. I wish I would have looked at the weather report more closely before arriving. I have been told that Mexico City basically has two seasons; wet and dry with temperatures that stay fairly cool year round.
... Mexican colonel is like. I had a Hawaiian burger meal and Bobbie a supreme burger. They were both **** and the chips were fries with no seasoning, I wouldn't recommend Mexico KFC. After a while we were about to give up on finding a salon. We walked the back street back to our hotel and would you believe it 50 meters down the road from our hotel was a tiny salon. It was so small only one old lady was cutting hair. No sink for washing out color, not much light. But it was a ...
I haven't been writting at all because, here I had a vey, very busy time!! Only the University IPADE is taking the most of my time... Teamwork at 9:00am then classes around 10:20 till 16:00 with some break including a long one for a lunch. Coffee for free all the time, but it doesn't change the fact that I have to stay in this not nice area for the most of the day. When I come back to my dorm I'm tired, I talk with people, plan some trips for the next weekend or go ...
... This was the one place Yang had been looking forward too the most. Frida Kalo's birth home and place where she spent a lot of time after her car accident which left her with a broken spine, amputated leg and a life-time of pain. The place is great, mainly because of the massive courtyard in the middle. Interesting paintings as well as rooms made up as her original studio, kitchen, sleeping quarters as well as the guest room where Leon Trotsky stayed for 3 months after ...
... houses connected together by a small pathway on the tops of the two houses.
The next day we went to the palace de arts which was a huge building with a little orange spike at the top we went to a café parrellel to palace and equal height as well. Whilst we were in Mexico city we needed to have some traditional Mexican food so we went into this little diner and had some tortas which were absolutely delicious. In Mexico we really had to go to the Mariachi ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Condesa DF Mexico City
First, let me say that I would return without much hesitation, and we definitely enjoyed our stay, but there are definitely things to consider and there were some flaws.
Yes, the hotel is beautifully designed and attracts a stylish Mexico City crowd. But be forewarned - the goal of the Condesa is to attract a party atmosphere. Providing comfort for the hotel guests is far down the list.
To stay at this hotel is quite an experience. This concept goes beyond a hotel experience; it's like staying in a friend's house. Staff is super friendly and effective with your needs. Rooms may be a little small but they certainly provide you with all the basics and even many not so necessary but great amenities, like and ipod charged with super cool music for you to just chill in your room, or a cinema at the hotel basement. The terrace is a great place to enjoy at day and night. Food is just excellent. DO NOT MISS the guacamole, it is as good as gets. Try also the sushi bar at night, you will found great Mezcal and a large Sake list.
We had a really great stay at the Condesa! Located close to the beautiful Parque Espana, the area (Condesa) and this nicely designed hotel feels (and looks) more than Paris than Mexico city.
We heartily enjoyed 4 days at the Condesa DF in Mexico City in Oct 2005. I really cannot recommend it enough! It was very hip and stylish and in a wonderful and safe location. The shades when drawn kept the light and sound out quite effectively. We hastily made changes in our initial reservations due to Hurricane Wilma and the hotel staff bent over backwards to help us locate and confirmed for us hotels in 4 other cities nearby. Additionaly, suggestions were offered and mapped out for us for restaurants, musuems and other sightseeing activities in Mexico City, too. The restaurant within in the hotel was an absolute unexpected gem. The food was the best we had during our 10 days in Mexico at any price and, if a may offer a suggestion, try their Horchata Martini! All in all a truly wonderful stay!
Great Service, Beautiful Place
I stayed for four days at the Condesa DF. On arrival they had better rooms than the one I had reserved and they upgraded my room at no cost. The place is beautifully designed with gusto, modern but not impersonal. I payed aprox 130 euros per night + tax. The rooms are really comfortable with plenty of light and bathrooms with amazing showers. It is located in a quite street but right in the middle of Condesa (one of the nicest barrios in Mexico DF). Certainly the best top hotel in Mexico city.
Great hotel in a wonderful location
My husband and I stayed at the Condessa for three nights and it far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are small, but very well designed and do not feel claustrophobic. Comfy bed and linens. The location itself is great - we were within walking distance of the Metro and several restaurants in Condessa, around Parqué México. We walked around late at night and had no problems. The restaurant at the Condessa is not bad either, though gets very noisy at night.
Stayed for a long weekend. Hotel was right out of South Beach. White on white rooms with plasma tv, Ipod, and DVD. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood with lots of restaurants and clubs. However, hotel had nice restaurant and 3 different party atmospheres at night - basement disco, courtyard bar/lounge and roof-top bar/lounge. As a women I felt very safe walking around the 'hood and nearby parks (which have ancient BIG trees). Staff very friendly and helpful. They allow dogs which is a plus as we always try to take our little Yorkie with us - he had a good time with all of the attention from the staff and other guests. I don't speak Spanish but it was not a problem as the staff all spoke English. Only issue was on Saturday night when we returned from clubbing we ordered room service - after waiting over 1 1/2 hours we called to cancel the order. This also resulted in our prior breakfast order being cancelled. No big deal, just the only problem to report. After we called about the breakfast order, it was brought up less than 15 minutes later. No pool but a nice sauna/steam/mini pool with waterfall on the roof deck. Note that even though this is Mexico, temps in summer are mild (60's day, 50's night) to bring a jacket.
