I had stayed in the Zona Rosa and Condesa neighborhoods of the D.F. on previous trips. They were OK but...The Roma neighborhood sounded interesting. Something about the location of this small hotel beckoned. I am glad I succumbed.
Casa de la Condesa is spotless. The staff friendly, helpful and eager to please. I stayed in a 3rd floor room with a view over the Plaza Luis Cabrera and its large fountain. Breakfast was cooked to order daily in a small dining room just for the hotel's guests.
No matter in which direction I walked upon leaving the hotel there were restaurants. Wonderful restaurants. Affordable menus featuring the delectable produce of Mexico's farms. Most places offered al fresco dining which was delightful in mid-fall.
The only negative? A very cramped bathroom. My room had a kitchenette which could have given up 50% of its space to the bathroom. I tolerated the bathroom's lack of space and dated layout because the location was so good.
La Roma? Think of the 6th arrondissement in Paris (St. Germain) and you get the idea. Very agreeable and safe. Sidewalk cafes and eateries filled with locals. Can one ask for more?More
