Mexico City Best Places to Stay

  This is Dan from Vagabond Buddha. Qiang Hui and I stayed in the above place for $19 USD per night.

I am in Mexico for the next 3 months and I will share everything I learn. I just left Mexico City a few days ago. I was there for about 2 weeks. I totally loved Mexico City. Although I have been to Mexico at least 20 times in my life, this was my first visit to Mexico City.

My three favorite neighborhoods in Mexico City are La Condesa, Roma Norte, and Polanco. If you watch two of my walking videos (La Condesa-Roma Norte, and Polanco), you will see why I love these areas.

If you book my recommended flights, tours, or accommodations, you will pay nothing extra, but I will earn a small commission. This will help me continue to travel and share with you.

In case you don’t have time to watch my walking videos, I will make a recommendation by comparison. If you love West Village in NYC, then stay in La Condesa. If you love East Village in NYC, then stay in Roma Norte. If you love the downtown area of La Jolla in southern California, then stay in Polanco.

Okay, now that you know which neighborhood you want to stay, here are my recommendations for each of La Condesa, Roma Norte, and Polanco. On the bottom of this page, I tell you where we stayed in Mexico City.

La Condesa

  1. Backpacker Hostel: On the day I searched this hostel was $15 USD per night.
  2. Moderate Hotel: On the day I searched this was less than $400 for a week. It is in a great location.
  3. Pricey Place: This gorgeous place is in an amazing location. Check out the pictures.
  4. Airbnb (Entire Apartment): $37/night on the day I searched. If you are new to Airbnb, use this code www.airbnb.com/c/dbell50 for a big discount

Polanco

  1. Backpacker Hostel: There were no hostels in Polanco on the day I searched. But this is the cheapest place I could find, on the day I searched ($46 USD night).
  2. Moderate Hotel: On the day we searched you could get this amazing place for about $100 USD per night.
  3. Pricey Place: Check out this gorgeous place for less than $200 USD per night when we searched.
  4. Airbnb (Entire Apartment): $25/night on the day I searched. If you are new to Airbnb, use this code www.airbnb.com/c/dbell50 for a big discount

Roma Norte:

  1. Backpacker Hostel: This place was about $8 USD per night on the day I searched. It is in a good location.
  2. Moderate Hotel: On the day we searched this place was about $65 USD per night. What a great location.
  3. Pricey Place: On the day we searched this amazing place and location was less than $200 USD per night.
  4. Airbnb (Entire Apartment): $25/night on the day I searched. If you are new to Airbnb, use this code www.airbnb.com/c/dbell50 for a big discount

Here is where we stayed (Airbnb): We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath shared apartment with our Airbnb host, Perla. This is technically two blocks south of La Condesa. We had a private room with a king size bed and its own bathroom. It has amazing light and a fully equipped kitchen so I could cook. Plus it was really cheap ($19 USD night). There is washing machine and a balcony. (If you are new to Airbnb, use this code www.airbnb.com/c/dbell50 for a big discount).

If you book my recommended flights, tours, or accommodations, you will pay nothing extra, but I will earn a small commission. This will help me continue to travel and share with you.

Here are the tours available in Cusco. I recommend using either Viator Mexico City Tours or GetYourGuide Mexico City Tours. These are tour aggregators. That means they just publish tours conducted by third parties. Some tours are better than others. So you need to read the reviews. Look for a tour that has at least 5 reviews that sound good, and 2 of those reviews should be within the last few months.

Here is information about how to get to Mexico City.

Thank you, Dan of Vagabond Buddha
