About León Martí
Hello, I´ve been studying and working abroad for a long time and just recently came back to my home 'town' Mexico City. I lived in Cancun, Madrid, Munich, Akumal and Connecticut. I am really happy to be back home and working on audiovisual productions, which turned from my hobby into my job. Although I don´t have a big family we balance it out with a lot of friends. I am currently using my spare time to travel through Mexico and get to know my Country better.
León Martí purchased this Apartment in 1975
Why León Martí chose San Miguel Chapultepec
This property was acquired by my parents and passed down to me. I was born on this property so I do have a lot of love for it. As years went by and the city grew I was fortunate that San Miguel Chapultepec got to be one of the most beautiful residential areas and in one of the best places, since around it, many neighborhoods like Polanco, Condesa and Roma got really popular. San Miguel Chapultepec kept its quiet residential mood and it´s green surroundings. Take a look at the satellite picture.
What makes this Apartment unique
The best thing the apartment has is the beautiful panoramic view to Castillo de Chapultepec and it´s high ceiling ample spaces.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Enjoyed it very much. We were two adults and three children and it is a spacious living area. The rooms big, beds comfortable and bathroom compact and comfortable. The view of the park and city is prime and we really enjoyed the oversized chess board. We hired doña Inés to make us breakfast one morning which we enjoyed. The property has its years and needs some structural upkeep but for the most part it is an enjoyable space. For the price and type of property I suggest they have basic soap, shampoo and Kleenex. Otherwise this can all be found on the corner shop.
Great location near Chapultepec park where we enjoyed many activities with the kids.
Very cool apartment, but needs a little TLC
The apartment was large and had a great layout. The communal spaces were amazing and so unique. The views at night and in the morning were so nice. I had the impression that it overlooked the park but it is more accurate to say that you can see the tree tops of the park, you can see the Castillo, once you know where it is. The apartment was secure and the gentleman at the gate were friendly and helpful. We loved the area and really enjoyed Mexico City. I was disappointed in the quality of the apartment and its amenities for how much we paid for it. There were no top sheets on the beds which is an absolute must in a rental. I asked the owner but we never got more linens (I did find one spare set) One of the showers leaked badly soaking the floor and so we stopped using it, so it really became a 1 full bath and 2 half bath apartment. The curtains in the main room were falling off and held up by a rope. The windows needed to be open at night and there are no screens so we did get some mosquito bites and it is was pretty noisy but that is city living, There was hand soap but no bath soap. The kitchen was stocked with cooking supplies (although we did not cook) There was some coffee but no filters. Normally these things do not bother me but this apartment was one of the more expensive apartments listed on VRBO in this area and so I expected a little more. The owner did respond to emails but we did not get any contact info for the host or check in information prior to arrival. The elevator wasn't always working so we took the stairs which wasn't a big deal for us, but if an elevator is a must for you, this one was a bit sketchy. If the apartment was stocked with better linens, basic supplies, got a deep cleaning and had some basic repairs it would be a 5 star because of the views, the open layout and great entertaining spaces.
Warm and welcoming as well as a beautiful home away from home
We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was large with beautiful views from the deck, living and dining areas, and the apartment is located in a peaceful and accessible neighborhood. We were a group of 7 professional women in our late 30s and 40s celebrating a friend's birthday, and we felt not only safe but completely relaxed during our time. There was plenty of room for all and Leon Martin was very easy to work with. He even set up an amazing, sweet and welcoming cook to make your stay even better. Highly recommended by all in our group!
Unique penthouse with fantastic location
This property is a one-of-a-kind with spectacular views and charm in what we found to be a perfect location. Overlooking the jewel of the immense Chapultepec Park with its castle (a destination in itself) , looking north to (among others) the BBVA Bancomer tower, the 4th largest skyscraper in the city, with its innovative nightly light display and architectural design. The kitchen was fully stocked and we used it much, though street vendors with tasty tacos and tamales were just steps away. We went everywhere in the city, plus walked much locally, and this was the perfect base. The neighborhood is charming, and the building is secure, yet muy friendly.
We wanted to give this property five stars, but dropped it one because the interior needs attention and linens were sparse (sheets, too). The pivoting windows, one of the major charms of the place with its window wall, means no screens are possible, and at the time of year of our visit, two of our seven group members ended up with pretty visible and itchy mosquito bites.
Leon is great to deal with and matched us with top-drawer tourism services, and Dona Ines provided wonderful welcoming and cleaning service. She can also cook and wash clothes for a fee upon request, in addition to her normal support services.
We'd be happy to go back, and found it to be a great value.
The place was beautiful
I was there with my family and we had a great time. The neighborhood was very safe feeling. The front guards were there to greet us and alway ready to open the door. We ended up either walking to the park or calling an Uber.
The apartment had the wonderful views of the park.
We would stay there again.
Best place I have ever stayed! Beautiful, sunny & central; phenomenal host!
I wish I could give six stars! Leon & co were the most wonderfully helpful hosts and the apartment was absolutely perfect. We had a group visiting from all over the United States in Mexico City for four days; Leon helped us organize a day trip to Teotihuacan with a fantastic guide/driver (and flexible departure time!), provided introductions for a home-made dinner in the apartment, and was all around a responsive and lovely host. The apartment itself is absolutely stunning; it's decorated with beautiful pieces of art and has the most amazing sun rise views (the wall of windows is incredible). Highly, highly recommend this place and would absolutely love to return. Thank you Leon!
You guys are wonderful. Thank you Melissa for your kindness and joy.
San Miguel Chapultepec is becoming one of the top residential areas to live in. Next to Chapultepec´s Park and full with trees, this tranquil neighborhood is an oasis in the middle center of mayor activity, commercial and cultural areas in Mexico City. Commercial Zone Polanco, Cultural and Gastronomic Condesa, Night Live Colonia Roma and Reforma Av. are just 10 minutes away by car or 20 minute walk. Cultural Coyoacán, Old Town San Ángel and Zocalo Old Quarter are just 20 minutes away either by car or Subway. Subway is a block away and so are a couple coffee shops, breakfast and panini restaurants, Deli shop, street tacos, tortas and Sanborn´s Mexican Food Chain. Soriana Supermarket is an 8 minute walk and Superama Supermarket can be delivered at home.
