Roma Norte is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Mexico City. Most buildings date from the Porfiriato era, which means French-style two storey family houses.
It is also close to trendy Condesa and the Historic Center, well communicated with the whole city (which is not that usual in Mexico City) yet safe from agglomerations, traffic, and noise. Take the subway (very safe), the metrobus, walk to a safe taxi sitio, all within 5 minutes.
Also rare for Mexico City is the fact that you can walk to do your grocery shopping, to have a coffee in the cafe of your choice, eat Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese or Mexican food. There are two beautiful gardened squares nearby. Have a beer and listen to live music without having to plan. Plenty of small and not-so-small art galleries.
The neighborhood is a mixture of old and new, of Mexican and foreign, becoming trendier but still not there, which affords you more space, quiet and lower prices on your young designer clothes, furniture, etc. A place to enjoy and a safe and beautiful base from where to explore the rest of the city.
We are a couple living in Mexico City for the past three years. We are originally from Peru and Spain, and have travelled extensively for work. We are both academics and enjoy having a safe haven to return to at the end of the day.
We like food and music and to have friends over. We both speak Catalan, Spanish, English, French and some German (whatever we can remember, anyway).
We have no children and no pets, but we do not mind non-destructive ones. We like plants and paintings. We do not smoke but do not mind if you do, as long as you do not burn the house down!
