Nous parlons Français The NeighborhoodThe Escandon neighborhood was founded in the early 19th century on the farmlands of large estates or Haciendas. This neighborhood was part of the Hacienda of La Condesa, which was owned by the Escandon family, who divided and sold the southern lands of said estate. The neighborhood is divided in 2 sections: Escandon I & Escandon II. Our property is located in the first one.
To access the compound within the which we are located, you must go through 2 doors, both of which remain locked at night to ensure, both, the permanent residents', and our guests' safety.
There are all kinds of businesses in our area within a 5 block radius - there is a supermarket, several convenience stores, a typical fresh-produce market, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, pharmacy stores, a police station, a fire station, a postal office, a church, a park, a gas station, banks with ATM machines, barber shops, and a street market that very conveniently sets up on our same street every Tuesday. Furthermore, there is a shopping mall with a movie theatre complex inside, a little bit over one kilometer away (Cinemex@Metropoli Patriotismo). Getting AroundThe property is located in the quadrant formed by the following avenues: Revolución, Patriotismo, Benjamin Franklin & Viaducto. This allows you to grab any kind of transportation fast and easily to go anywhere in the city in less time.
We are also 3 blocks away south of La Condesa and minutes away by car from Polanco and La Roma, so you will be quite close of all the main city attractions like Chapultepec Park, Castle & zoo, Reforma Ave. with monuments & museums (the Angel of Independence, the National Anthropology and History Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tamayo Museum, the Samaya Museum, etc.), and much more.
There are 2 subway stations quite near the housing compound, the Tacubaya Station (L.1, 7 & 9) 4 blocks away, and the Patriotismo Station (L.9). There is also a metro-bus station, the De La Salle Station, 5 blocks away. If you like to ride a bike, you can hire the Ecobici plan. Ecobici Station # 172 is just around the corner from our privada.
Since we are 1 block away from Revolución Ave. & 3 blocks away from Patriotismo Ave. & Benjamin Franklin Ave., you can easily take a cab or bus to go in any direction. Revolución Ave. takes you South. Patriotismo Ave. takes you North, and Benjamin Franklin takes you East.
If you prefer to move around in a taxi, we strongly suggest the use of private units. We have included the telephone number of a trustworthy private cab company in our listing guide. You can also download the UBER or CABIFY applications in your cell phone so that you can request this service at any time anywhere in the city. These taxis pick you up in front of the housing compound and they deliver you at the door of your desired destination.
Our guests simply cannot believe how easy it is to go to and from the Escandon neighborhood to any other point in the city!
P.S. We like to suggest your guests, especially those who are visiting Mexico City for the first time, to take the “hop on - hop off” Turibus. It is a convenient way to get a general overview of the city in less time, with the opportunity of getting off at the most appealing points of interest.
You can buy the tickets easily online and to take the bus, you just have to take the subway at Tacubaya Station. Take Line 7 in direction of El Rosario. Get off at Auditorio Station, just 2 stations away.
