We had a wonderful time at Casa Conde! Jacobo and Jorge did an amazing job welcoming us to their city. We loved the fresh juice and traditional breakfast and they were excellent in suggesting interesting places to visit. The house was clean, funky, affordable and made us feel very at home. It was located within a short walk to the park, Condesa, and metro stations.
If you want a relaxed, friendly and funky base in Mexico City - stay at Casa Conde in San Miguel Chapultepec. Jacobo and Jorge are fantastic hosts (and cooks), the house is in a great location with a 10-minute walk to La Condesa, 20 minutes on the metro to the Centro Historico and short walk to Bosque de Chapultepec. You can even borrow bikes to spend a day riding in the park and visiting the museums and art galleries. The house is filled with arty riffs on Mexican icons, the famous pinata sound system and is a great place to hang out after a hard day exploring amazing Mexico City. Cannot recommend Casa Conde highly enough - do yourself a favour!
I stayed here for three nights and I'd highly recommend it. It's a fantastic bed and breakfast in a refurbished townhouse, with lovely patios and great breakfasts. The decor is just beautiful, with polished wood floors and high white walls. The multilingual owners are friendly and helpful, and it's close to the metro at San Cosme which is about three stops from the very centre of the city. Some (not all) of the rooms have a shared bathroom- a bit unusual in such a high-spec place- but if you don't mind the inconvenience of sharing, these are particularly good value.
Fly to Mexico City, spend about five days there, then bus to Morelia for a couple of days, then taxi to Patzcuaro for three days, staying at Villa Victoria, and finally on to Guadalajara for three days. Fly home from there. Gorgeous!
Driving a car in mexico is rewarding - other drivers are courteous. However road direction signs are few and misleading and some get vandalized. Everybody gets lost. Bring your own satnav with the right software. You could buy one with the local hire cost! You will cut hours from your journeys.
The best museum on western hemisphere and probably the best museum in the world.
All the collection and exhibits are absolutely local and genuine, from Mexico alone, were not looted, stolen or in any other way "brought" from other countries for display.
