We were in Mexico City for eight days and loved staying at The Vestry. The apartment is perfect for two people, very comfortable and close to key attractions, the Metro, shopping, restaurants and groceries. Juan Carlos provided very helpful info about the area in a guide book and the apartment has everything you need. The building and courtyard are beautiful and after a long day of walking we were often greeted by two friendly cats, a welcome bonus! We would definitely stay here again.
The apartment is perfect for a couple. The location is fantastic. Kittens in the courtyard were magical. There are no downsides to this rental.
For our needs, it was a perfect location. It was comfortable, but lacks air conditioning. I really liked the history of Casa Borda. Juan and Victor were prompt and courteous at meeting our needs. The apartment was clean and neat. It has a full kitchen, of which we did not take advantage. It is really meant for those who want to cook in, while we were more interested in dining in the local restaurants.
Juan has an excellent booklet prepared for those staying there. It is very helpful! Thanks, Juan! The ladies who lived adjacent to our apartment were life-savers in helping us get a taxi to the airport for our trip home. I loved the privacy once you step into the courtyard from the busy Mexico City streets! A very nice place to stay.
My fiancé and I stayed here for a week on our first trip to Mexico City. We fell in love with the city and the apartment was just perfect. Off of a busy central street, you walk into this semi open air atrium that was so beautiful and peaceful. The unit is perfect for a couple. Great size, lots of room and storage. I can't wait to stay again!
The Vestry is a welcome respite after a day of touring Mexico City. You walk into the courtyard and immediately leave the hustle and bustle of the city outside. It is a breath of fresh air. The building and apartments have been renovated, but parts of the beautiful, old architecture are shown so you can appreciate its history. The apartment was not lacking for anything. We were comfortable in our 8-day stay. The bed is incredible -- wish we could have taken it with us. This is a perfect place for two people. The Zocalo is very close and we went there everyday.
We were only going to stay three nights in Mexico City out of an eight night trip. On the third night, after sunset, while still out on our excursion of the day we phoned our excellent host Juan Carlos and extended for the duration. Fortunately the booking was available. This historic building in the heart of El Centro Historico is minutes walking to too many sights to mention. A great spot. What a neighborhood. The Friday and Saturday nights are hopping on this block so heads up if you are a light sleeper but, if you are like us, you will be so tired from all the day's exploring, gawking and food, you might not notice. Check on Bruno the Casa Kitty. He loves a good bowl of milk.
We had a great stay at The Vestry for 2 nights at the end of October. Lots of festivities were happening nearby, with costumed people out partying in the streets. We found this place to be perfect for us: it had relaxation space, it was safely within a walled exterior with a keyed entry system, it has a loft bedroom with a comfy bed and a very nice bathroom upstairs, and the kitchen was well set up and handy. The owner was helpful and the guide to the area was great. Five stars overall! Note: if you turn on the upstairs light shining over the living room, your lighting downstairs will be much better. At night, if you close the doors just outside the suite, the sound of the generator (I think) will be reduced. We were very pleased with this place and will return!
