Roma is, along with La Condesa, one of the centers of the hipster culture in Mexico City. It hosts many Art-Nouveau and Neo-Classical architectural gems, which gives it a European feel, and it’s now home to trendy restaurants, cafes, and shops. The area of Roma-Condesa was designated as a barrio mágico (“magical neighborhood”) by the city in 2011. Along with Polanco, it’s among the most popular barrios for visitors in the city. Here are the best Roma Airbnbs in the heart of Mexico City.
Elegant, sunlit apartment in an unbeatable location
This artsy apartment is bright and airy, an inspiring jumping off point for exploring one of the world’s most vibrant cities. The views are good, the decor is clean, and the place feels like what you’d want your urban loft to look like. Former guests have raved about its clean, modern design, its location, the extra touches from the host (think a welcome wine basket with snacks), and the high-speed Internet.

Lovely apartment with a terrace in a building with private security

New double-decker mini-loft ideal for two friends or couples traveling together
This apartment is exceptionally well located, it has a super fun layout, it’s very safe and cutely decorated. The unit features an upstairs and downstairs area with sleeping quarters, and is bright enough to spur even non-morning persons into action for a day out in Mexico City. Of all Roma Airbnbs, this one is perhaps the most well-lit and inspiring.

Beautifully designed “oasis” rooftop apartment in the heart of Roma Norte
The location of this oasis apartment is perfect: away enough from restaurants and bars but within a short walking distance to everywhere. The apartment is at the top of the building and the rounded-shaped windows, the high ceilings, and the views create a general ambiance of peace and calmness. Be aware that there is a spiral staircase to get up to the apartment. There are bunk beds in one of the bedrooms that are great for kids or friends who don’t mind sharing a room. The master bedroom is traditional and open.

Large penthouse with wrap-around terrace and amazing views
This beautifully decorated, spacious apartment is extremely well equipped (think safe drinking water, a washer, a dryer, and all the kitchen gadgets). It’s close to everything, and the views from the fifth-floor wraparound terrace are simply astonishing and worth the investment. Plus, it has a dedicated workspace and guaranteed fast wifi — making this an ideal spot for remote workers.

Romantic apartment with lovely terrace, perfect for couples
This seductive apartment is located on a tree-lined street overlooking the beautiful and lush Rio de Janeiro park, one of the highlights of la Roma Norte. The terrace is full of flowers, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and some of the adjectives former guests have used to describe it are “magnificent,” “magical,” and “a gem.” The kitchen is tight but you’re here to experience the city’s food culture anyway — and there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops in this area.

Plant-filled penthouse with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the neighborhood
A very clean, carefully equipped apartment with tons of natural light and close to everything. Walk to cafes and taco shops, and everything from Chapultepec Park to Centro is a quick Uber ride. The unit allows you to take in the city from multiple angles, making for great sunrises and great sunsets. One former guest comment says it all — “Man oh man what a beautiful apartment!!”

Huge apartment in the center of Roma Norte, great for families
Comfortable, spacious apartment in the center of Roma Norte. The balcony overlooks Rio de Janeiro Park (it has a playground for the kids to burn off energy before going to explore the city). There is a church across the street so be ready to wake up to the bells ringing, but this just adds to the charm of a unit that puts you within walking distance of cafes and tacos, not to mention shopping and museums.
