Interaction with Guests
I live in the home on the first floor. Should you need anything do not hesitate to ask. Only thing is my English is very limited. I may have you text my daughter on my phone to translate what you need. I can give you suggestions of what to do or give you as much privacy as needed. Don't be shy to ask any questions.
Yo voy estar en la casa para recibirlos , solo hablo Español.
We love this neighborhood because its safe and centrally located to just about everything. During Christmas you can see the lights down the river. I can easily get around the city in minutes to the popular areas but can also avoid the traffic that comes with living in Poblado. Staying here will give you a true locals feel in Medellin.
It's easy to get around, we can call you a taxi to where ever you need to go. The taxi's here are inexpensive, the minimum is 4,500 pesos. From the airport in Rio Negro you can take a taxi which is 55,000 pesos or you can take the bus for 12,000 pesos and then take a cab from San Diego and it will be about 5,000 pesos. Very easy to get to the home, it's in Barrio Conquistadores a very safe area of Medellin.
The metro is also nearby as well just a short ride with a taxi.

Bertilda was very kind to me. She gave me a nice welcoming drink, struggled to understand my poor language skills, and provided some delicious soup. The room was as advertised - comfortable, quiet, good kitchen, washing machine, and a good bed.
Bertilda was a sweet and gracious host, and the accommodations were comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and serves as a good starting point for journeys to other parts of the city. This was a great place to be based during our stay in Medellin.
Bertilda was gracious and friendly, and she went out of her way to make us comfortable. She gave us advice on how to get around town and called taxis for us a few times. She let us use her kitchen and balcony, and the room was great for us. Thanks Bertilda!
The other reviews of Bertilda's home are entirely accurate. The room was cozy and the bathroom was nice. Although my Spanish is terrible Bertilda did her best to try to communicate with us. :) The neighborhood was nice and we felt safe walking around night and day. It was a little far from restaurants, etc. but other than that we enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend staying here.
Fuímos muy bien recebidos y tratados. La casa y la habitación son hermosas. El barrio es tranquilo, con muchas calles llenas de arboles para caminar, y está cerca de todo. Agradecemos mucho!!!
Bertilda is absolutely wonderful. After a mediocre experience at an Airbnb in Cartagena, Betilda's home felt like an oasis. She doesn't speak a lick of english, but she was incredibly welcoming. The room is good sized and the bed is comfortable. She provided us with towels, wifi, and plenty of Spanish television if you desire. The bathroom is fine, you have to walk through the shower to the bathroom, but is adds character more than a nuance. Little tip, if you want warm water, keep the flow low on the shower, the heater can heat it then.
On one of my days in Medellin I got sick and Bertilda insisted on making sure I eat something and had some food ordered for us.
Its a wonderful, quiet place that give access to the entire city with a 15 minute walk to the metro. Would definitely stay again.
The room is exactly as pictured and Bertilda is amazing. We (unfortunately) had fallen ill and Bertilda went above and beyond to help us. Stay here!

I'm retired, living with my family in a 5 bedroom 3 bath home. I'm a humble person with good morals. My family life and relationship with God are the most important things I value in life. I enjoy to travel to meet new people and learn new cultures. I'm Christian and I enjoy reading the bible in the mornings to start my day.
My daughter & son-in-law introduced me to airbnb this year and I've absolutely enjoyed hosting guests from all over the world. I hope I can host you too! Their profile is: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/1351362
