This is an area of high end retail shops, nice restaurants, etc. It is walkable, safe, busy into the evening. We liked staying there for a couple of nights. Think of this as an international lux brand shopping area, not especially Mexican. The main museum is the Soumaya, an art musum open on Mondays when most others are closed.

A place to walk take lunch and get a feel for how the well off live in the inner city of Mexico City and high end European galleria shopping if that's what you are looking for?

Hopping with trendy restaurants and cafes, great night time destination. We walked around and dropped in on an amazing restaurant without any reservations. Worth a night!

Although the guide book says there is not much to see here, it is a charmingly district. There's expensive shops, true, but there's are also many decent and varied places to eat.

This upscale neighborhood is where many embassies are located, and most restaurants in the area are not Mexican, but Italian, Belgian, American, and French. The quiet streets and greenery are a tranquil change from the bustling streets of Centro Historico.
