Part Three: Casa Mali, Condesa and Parque Mexico
Casa Mali, Mexico City
Located in the Condesa area, among the tree-lined streets, vibrant buildings, beautiful parks and numerous cafes, lays the quaint Casa Mali. Mexico City is home to a treasure trove of hidden gem boutique hotels, but the Casa Mali oozes old school charm and a chic, modern style that by far won our hearts. As you enter the lobby, the bright, freshly cut flowers delicately pierce your eyes as the glimmering chandelier and handcrafted mosaic tile flooring make you feel like you stepped into your very own fairytale. The lobby is complete with a nook off to the side, which plays host to a library and elegant velvet chair seating, as well as a cozy rooftop jacuzzi and barbecue grills for those colder, more intimate evenings.

The Room
The room was equally as gorgeous as the lobby and came equipped with a kitchen, large refrigerator, and washer and dryer, which totally gave us the feeling that we were in our very own [nicer version] apartment in New York. The bathroom was super relaxing thanks to the Molton Brown products, and as you can guess, I never wanted to leave. Directly across the street from Casa Mali was the breathtaking Parque Mexico, a super plush green park that greeted us everyday as we stepped out from the hotel after our wonderful complimentary breakfast. It was lovely to see the residents walking dogs, jogging or just relaxing on one of its many benches – simply enjoying the beautiful day.
The Activities
Condesa is situated next to another amazing neighborhood called Roma, a similarly arty enclave but with more of a hipster edge. Needless to say, we fell in love with both.
    • Parque Mexico
I cannot convey how magnificent this park is. Filled with lush trees and promenades perfect for strolling, it’s always a hive of activity, especially at the weekends when you can catch live music and dancers practising their moves. As we walked through the park every day, I couldn’t make it from one end to the other without saying over and over, “I love this place so much.”
      • #Wanderlust
One of the appeals of Condesa is simply the beauty of it’s streets. It’s made up of lots of charming, wide avenues with trees that form a canopy above. When you’re in one of the biggest cities in the world, these touches of nature just remind you how special it really is. I am confidently say that this neighborhood is the stuff dreams are made of.
The Restaurants
One of the best features about this Mexico City neighborhood is that it is a great foodie spot! There are tons of food options to choose from – even for the pickiest eater (aka me) – as well as setting, whether you are looking for something more relaxed or a more high-end place to celebrate.
        • Mercado Roma
We loved visiting the Mercado Roma, or “the eataly” of Mexico City. An enclosed food market with a variety of vendors, you can choose from classic Mexican cuisine of tacos, flautas and gringas, or indulge in international favorites, like sushi! Since portions are relatively small, you can check out two or three places in a single trip, especially if you share plates. Don’t leave without sampling an order of hot churros with chocolate sauce!
          • Cabrera 7
A super tasty restaurant whose menu includes flavored margaritas, tostadas, and tacos in an adorable atmosphere and vibe!
            • Por Siempre (Food Truck)
For my veggie friends out there, this is a great place to stop for a snack. I loved the super yummy soyrizo tacos.
Hop
Hop is the “ultimate beer experience” in Mexico City. They carry an ever-changing variety of local and international craft beers that even the locals flock to!
              • Taqueria Alvaro Obregon
Be sure to stop by to try the amazing cheesy tacos and pastor plates.
El Moro
For those sweet tooth cravings, I highly recommend El Moro. Situated directly across Casa Mali this slice of Heaven has been around since 1935 and is known for their to-die-for churros.
Limantour
The perfect place for the perfect nightcap, Limantour is beyond innovative with their cocktails (which usually include edible ingredients). I had one of the best mocktails there ever!
