Mexico City, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
This wonderful apartment, decorated in a fresh contemporary style, is the perfect oasis from which to venture out into the bustling streets and plazas of the historic center and explore its many impressive buildings and museums on foot. The 'Centro', as the locals call it, was declared a World Heritage Site in 1991. It is chockfull of Aztec and Colonial treasures, fascinating museums, busy shopping streets and markets, and plenty of restaurants and bars. Here you feel the throbbing pulse of this great megalopolis - and all just a few steps away from your apartment.

Located on the top floor of a stately building, this penthouse offers breathtaking views of major Mexico City landmarks. It has an enormous living area with a plant-filled terrace, four charming bedrooms, three and a half marble baths (one with jacuzzi), and a modern...

Our group totaled seven, and this apartment was very accommodating. Great common space and well appointed. Staying in the historico central granted us easy access to sightseeing treasures, but we always had a stylish and comfortable spot to come home to. Our hostess, Petra, thought of everything: a stocked fridge for breakfasts, guidebooks, filtered water, and our own "minibar" for...

Management response:

Thanks, Ellen, for such a great review. I am glad you and your group enjoyed your stay. And we enjoyed having you with us! And thanks for the bottles of wine you left. Let's drink them together when you return.

This penthouse suite is perfectly located in the middle of Centro Historico, within walking distance of the Zócalo, Templo Mayor, Palacio de Bellas Artes, and so very much more. The suite itself was very comfortable, exceptionally spacious, and with all the amenities you would expect in a penthouse suite and more. The best part of our stay here was Petra!...

Management response:

Thank you so much, Vicky and Doug, for this wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Do come back and let's do another anniversary or other celebration tour in a different part of the city. There's plenty more to explore. All the best to the both of you, Petra.

Strategic: One of the things I look for in a vacation rental is the location - this was a short trip (about a week) and I didn't want to spend the majority of my free time traveling around the city to see things. This apartment is perfectly located for everything you want in the Historic Center., I.E. Zocalo, Ruins, Museums,...

Dear Bob and Mario, we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Bolivar Suites. And thank you for taking the time to write such a kind and detailed review. It helps future guest to know what Bolivar Suites - and we - are all about. Do come back and we'll take you to other markets...

About the neighborhood
Bolivar Suites is located in Mexico City's historic center, between Bellas Artes (the opera house) and the Zocalo (the main square with the National Palace and the cathedral). Declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, the "Centro" (as the locals call it) is chockfull of fascinating sites, Aztec and colonial treasures, busy shopping streets, colorful markets, and plenty of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Here you feel the throbbing pulse of this great megalopolis - and all just a few steps away from where you are staying.
Take a taxi or the metro to attractions farther afield, such as the Anthropology Museum, Coyoacan with its small-village atmosphere or the “floating” gardens of Xochimilco. And hire a car or hop on a bus for day trips to the famous Teotihuacan pyramids, ot...

PLEASE LET US KNOW SEVERAL DAYS IN ADVANCE AT WHAT TIME YOU ARE PLANNING TO ARRIVE AT BOLIVAR SUITES SO WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT SOMEBODY WILL BE HERE TO RECEIVE YOU. Edificio Santa Clara is a tall building is located on Bolivar street between Tacuba and 5 de Mayo streets in the historic center. You can see our building on one of the photos on our web site. The metro station Allende is around the corner on Tacuba. When you arrive at our building, please go to Apartment 607 (where I live) and we'll take you to your apartment across the hall and install you. If there is nobody at the entrance gate to the building (this sometimes happens between 10 pm and 7 am), ring the small night bell at the right of the gate.
