We stayed at Condesa House for 6 days, at the end leg of a 3 month trip around South America. Having stayed at loads of B&B's during the trip, and having experienced the good, bad and the ugly - this one was the gem in the crown.
Firstly the location is wicked - Condesa is a super hip, very pretty neighbourhood with tons of restaurants and bars and lots of nice boutiques. It is also relaxed feeling, and i felt safe jogging on my own which i haven't in some other cities we visited. We come from London and loved the feel of the area.
Secondly the house is lovely - for the first 2 days we stayed in the studio, which is essentially a self contained apartment with all mod cons: huge flat screen tv, washer/dryer (rocio, the manager was kind enough to donate a large amount of washing powder and fabric conditioner), and fully equipped kitchen. The decor was very contemporary and the apartment is light and airy. Then for the next 4 days we stayed in a large room in the house - the room had lovely original features, including a beautifully tiled bathroom with stained glass window. Again with large TV. We were super comfortable.
Lastly - for us, what was so nice was the attitude and care of Fernando, the owner, and Rocio, his lovely kind manager. They gave great recommendations, booked us a trip to the pyramids, ordered taxi's. On our last day our flight didn't leave till late evening and Fernando let us keep the room all day and evening, as his next guest wasn't till the next day. Oh and we also had dinner with Fernando and his partner one night, they took us to a fab Argentine restaurant in nearby Polanca area, we had a great time.
Rather than stay in an anonymous hotel, in a touristy area - we really feel that staying here and getting to know Fernando and Rocio gave us such a richer and more fun experience.
