CHECK IN / CHECK OUT

The check in time is set at 3:00pm GMT-6. If a guest arrives before 3:00pm and there is no other tenant leaving the property the same day, we can receive the guest before check in time without extra charge. Please note that even if we confirm a check in before 3:00pm, it could be changed if we get a new reservation with the new tenant leaving the same apartment in the same day of your check in; in that case, the guest should wait for the standard check in time to occupy the property. The guest may also book the day before in order to guarantee the availability of the apartment for an earlier check in time.

Mexico City Apartments will match the check in time according to the guest’s arrival. A member of our staff will receive the tenant at the property and provide useful information about the apartment and the building. At check in, the guest shall sign the temporary rental contract and inventory, pay the remaining balance and receive the apartment keys. The guest will also agree on the time for the check out.

The check out time is set at 10:00am GMT-6. If a guest has to leave after 10:00am and there is no other tenant arriving at the property the same day, the guest may remain at the apartment after check out time during the same day without extra charge. Please note that even if we confirm a check out after 10:00am, it could be changed if we get a new reservation with the new tenant arriving to the same apartment in the same day of your check out, in that case, the guest should leave the property at the standard check out time. The guest may also book one extra day in order to guarantee the availability of the apartment for a later check out time.

At check out, the guest returns the apartment keys and receive the security deposit back, after the owner confirms that there are neither damages nor missing items.
