Roma is actually divided into Roma Norte and Roma Sur, and both are wonderful places to stay in the city. Each of these colonias are perfectly situated and are considered to be very central.

There is plenty of restaurants and bars and both are very well connected by bus and metro.
This is a really up and coming neighborhood which can be found in the Benito Juarez delegation. In terms of cool, this zone is one of the best and there is a great mixture of foreigners and tourists here. Throughout the area you will find great parks, beautiful coffee shops and restaurants, as well as plenty of life on the street from performers and street sellers to people running and dancing in the parks. This is a quiet neighborhood and that is what brings so many people to it.
If you ask people where you should stay then you will get an awful lot of people telling you that Condesa is the place to be. This is a beautiful neighborhood and one which is very foreigner heavy. As a result there are gorgeous little shops and cafes throughout the zone, with beautiful tree lined streets and quiet parks. This is one of the city’s most visually appealing colonias and there is a huge amount of private rentals and accommodation to choose from.
The historic center of Mexico City, called Zocalo, is a great place to stay and it is a perfectly situated colonia for any tourist.
