Ligia Davila purchased this Studio in 2016
Why Ligia Davila chose Cuauhtémoc
This apartment is part of the new and renovated Centro Histórico, an effort by the government, the private sector and individuals to imbue new life and spirit to Downtown Mexico City, with more attractions, nightlife, restaurants and housing. It is located within walking distance not only from the city center, also from restaurants, bars, archaeological sites, colonial buildings, Bellas Artes and dozens of museums (there is a guide in the apartment). It is an excellent option for the traveler that wants to know Mexico from its heart.
What makes this Studio unique
The place is very illuminated by natural light and it is compact, cozy, having just the right size for enjoying your stay, and with an excellent location in the neighborhood.

Will stay there again. Great unit.
The building personnel are A+++. The unit is modern and has everything needed.
Very nicely fully furnished little studio, very clean, in modern building. Gorgeous rooftop terrace with amazing view, laundry facilities, very secure, friendly front desk, small gym, elevator. Lots of street life but door to ceiling windows extremely effective in cutting out noise. Around corner from beautiful pedestrian street and the lovely Plaza Sto. Domingo. Just a few blocks from downtown. Very pleased. Thank you.
The apartment is a block away from Plaza Santo Domingo and the 18th century church of Santo Domingo (which started as a small temple in 1527), and two blocks from Mexico City's imposing Zócalo.
The view from the roof garden is beautiful, with the church cupolas a few meters away, while you grill some carne asada with friends, relax on chaises while you read a book or watch the sun set in the distance.
The building entrance has a person at the entrance 24/7 and CCTV on the outside.
The side-street is pedestrian and it takes you to a plaza with an 18th century church, and a contiguous plaza where you can sit with a modern-day scribe that can write a love letter to your better half, ask for forgiveness or just live the experience of having someone ghostwrite a postal letter that you can send home.
Two more blocks bring you to Mexico's Cathedral, the Zócalo, the President's offices on one side and the city Mayor's offices on the other, the famous Portales, and on one corner the Templo Mayor, enough activities for a full day.
Next to the Cathedral you can take the Turibus, the CapitalBus and many other hop-on/hop-off options, or a bicitaxi that can take you anywhere within the Historic Center of Mexico City, including Bellas Artes a few blocks away or any of the tens of museums available in the area.
Have Breakfast at Café La Blanca (for locals), Churros el Moro (Delicious) or Café Tacuba (must do, arrive early); eat at any fonda, at Hostería de Santo Domingo (serving non-stop since 1860; try the traditional Chile en Nogada), or splurge at El Cardenal or La Ópera (look for a bullet hole in the roof, made by Pancho Villa). Stop for a sidewalk beer or coffe in Gante street.
There are tons of activities nearby for several days of activity, or you can venture further out to Reforma and Chapultepec, and visit the Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia, in front of the Zoo, or the Condesa-Roma corridor for a SOHOesque experience.
Walking is the preferred method of getting around (bring comfy shoes!), bicitaxi when you get tired (haggle, but not so much, it is, after all, muscle power) and Metro L2 (Allende, Zócalo and Pino Suárez are within the Centro Histórico).
For longer trips, Metro (L1, L2, L3, L8), or Cabify or Uber (not the best, but better than the local taxis) for purpose trips, and Turibus and CapitalBus for sightseeing trips.
