Luxury 4BR penthouse, superb views, in historic center

Condo/Apartment -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
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.

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 p...

Petra's penthouse was perfect for our ten night stay in Mexico City. It is in the historic district between Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Zocalo. The photographs are accurate but really don't do justice to the apartment. It is a combination of a B...More

About the neighbourhood
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, othe...

How to get there
Airport: Benito Juarez Intl. airport : 10.0 km
PLEASE LET US KNOW SEVERAL DAYS IN ADVANCE AT WHAT TIME YOU ARE PLANNING TO ARRIVE 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.
