My nephew and I recently spent an enjoyable week exploring Mexico City and staying at the Casa Roa. Casa Roa is a very nice two story home located in the upscale “Satellite” area of Mexico City. There are a variety of rooms at Casa Roa, we stayed in two of them and they were both large, comfortable and nicely decorated. The second room we stayed had doors that opened directly to the backyard. The rooms we stayed had all the modern conveniences including excellent Wi-Fi service. Isabel, the owner, is a very warm and friendly person that made the stay extra special. She also helped us figure out the best sites to see, how to get around, etc.
We were there a week but had something different each day for breakfast which was served in the kitchen. It was always delicious. We also arranged for a tour of the Pyramids near Mexico City. Our tour guide was Sophia, Isabel’s daughter and we also enjoyed this very much.
Others in these reviews have commented on the taxis – so here is my take on it. There are a few small restaurants and stores located within easy walking distance of Casa Roa – but for most places you need public transport – which for us meant taxis. Fortunately, taxis are common and easy to use in Mexico City (and we don’t speak very much Spanish). Getting a taxi from Casa Roa is easy – Isabel would call a taxi and within a few minutes, it arrived. Finding taxis from the various places we visited to Casa Roa was generally not a problem. I do recommend bringing a Casa Roa business card (with map on the back), Google map or GPS as all taxi drivers could get to the Satellite area without problem – but finding Casa Roa was occasionally a little more difficult. Also, traffic can be bad from the downtown area to Casa Roa at rush hour so plan accordingly (and use the toll roads).
I highly recommend the Casa Roa, it truly felt like being in a home away from home.
