Mexico City 5-Star Alternative

Mexico City 5-Star Alternative
Honeymooners planning a visit to Mexico City and not wanting to check into an impersonal "Big Box" hotel, need look no further for the perfect "haven," thanks to the recent addition of the chic "Flat & Breakfast" to the roster of 5-Star accommodations.

Conveniently located just one block from Mexico City's iconic Angel de la Independencia (the Angel) and two blocks from well known Paseo de la Reforma, location of many of the city's finest museums, art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and myriad tourist attractions - including the legendary Chapultepec Park and Castle - F&B offers the perfect launch pad from which to tour the ancient Aztec capital.

Trendy Polanco - home to designer boutiques, popular eateries, 5-star hotels and modern shopping centers - is nearby. A short taxi-ride away is the Historic Center and the Zócalo - legendary "Halls of Moctezuma" and hub of the ancient Aztec Empire - as well as Bellas Artes Palace and Alameda Park.

F&B is completely furnished, offering privacy and a truly "at home feeling," with two bedrooms, two-and-half baths (designer amenities included) and a living and dining room. The "flat" is close to the US Embassy and tucked into a small secure building whose ground floor is home to the renowned Curryer Chocolates, which has been crafting the finest confections in Mexico City since 1919. Guests of F&B receive a 50 percent discount at Curryer's on a variety of gourmet coffees.

The apartment suite offers a king-size Master bedroom with desk, walk in closet and private bath and deep Jacuzzi. A second bedroom has two oversized twin beds, full bath, walk-in closet and in-room safe.

The tastefully appointed living area offers plush leather sofa and love-seat, large LCD flat screen TV, DVD and large dining area. A fully equipped kitchen includes granite counters, microwave, dishwasher and wet bar. The flat also has a washer and dryer, high speed Wi-Fi, free long distance telephone to the US and Mexico and SKY HD satellite international TV service.

Covered parking is available for one vehicle and a doorman is onsite from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. Housekeeping service includes replacement of towels and sheets as needed and Continental breakfast. Also available for a nominal fee: laundry and ironing services, grocery shopping, dry cleaning and arrangement of transportation services.

Drawing on the Mexican adage: "Mi casa es su casa," (My home is your home), F&B is perfect for up to four guests for short - or extended stays.

Rates start at $179 per night, for two people. Additional guests pay an extra $25 per person, per night. This is a smoke-free apartment.
