About This Listing
Our Cielo Room is a natural, well-lit bedroom (full bathroom, queen size bed, cotton sheets) with a designated off-street parking spot, and a separate entrance. Newly built, the second story room is comfortable and lofty, with windows all around looking out onto a quaint East Austin neighborhood.
This location worked out very nicely for me. The apartment was clean and as described, and Ginger was very responsive. Very pleased.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Cielo Room for 5 nights as we visited Austin. The Cielo Room is in a great location. It lies just outside the main spots in East Austin and a little further but about a 20 min walk from great spots closer to the main parts of the city (West Austin). Ginger was a great host let us do our thing but said hello on our first night and introduced herself. She takes care of her place and it shows. She has got some amenities like coffee and a mini fridge to help make your travels a bit easier. There were hangers there for our clothes which was perfect. Lizzie was adorable and greeted us at the gate every morning to say hello. I would not have minded an additional towel or two as we had 3 for two people so not even two each, but that was hardly an issue. The area was sweet and did not seem unsafe at any point. In a few comments below there was a mention that the neighbor hood had quite a few dogs that barked and a recommendation for ear plugs. I love dogs but this was on point, they were a bit loud in the mornings so we had to use our ear plugs. Over all the experience was wonderful and if we come back to Austin we would love to stay at the Cielo Room again and recommend it for your stays to keep it economical as you explore what Austin has to offer.
We really enjoyed our stay. It was clean, private, and a perfect home base for our trip. We loved getting to know the neighborhood.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our six-day stay at the Cielo Room. The room was private, clean and quiet. Ginger’s dog Lizzie was in the yard a few times during our visit and was super friendly (just say her name and she melts). There are plenty of funky places to eat and drink within walking distance from the room. We were without a car, thinking we would supplement walking with Car2Go or Uber to get around, but we were very pleasantly surprised at how convenient public transit was to the neighborhood and how easy it was to use a smartphone to purchase and use daily transit passes. We did not meet Ginger, but she was very responsive to our text messages. We would definitely stay at the Cielo Room again.
I stayed at Ginger's place for four days while on a business trip. It's in a nice, friendly neighborhood close to lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, etc. and downtown is a super quick walk or bike ride away. The place was easy to find when following the easy directions that she provides. Her dog, Lizzie, is a sweetie and if you're not a dog lover she just might turn you into one. The room was clean and comfortable and smelled good (which is very important!) and the sheets, bedding, and pillows were soft and cozy. I brought my own electric kettle so I could have tea and oatmeal and was surprised to see that one was already provided - a nice plus! Ginger was very unobtrusive and the couple of times that I did run into her in passing, she was very kind and friendly. Overall, my stay was comfortable and convenient and well-priced. Highly recommend staying here!
Cielo Room was beyond expectations. Beautiful east Austin location walking distance to great bars and restaurants. The room is super clean and nicer than most hotels. Highly recommend Ginger and Cielo Room and we will definitely be back!
The Cielo Room was exactly as listed and looks just like the photos. This is a great apartment in a perfect central part of Austin. The room was very clean, with a/c, internet, parking, etc. Ginger and I didn't interact much in person, but she was very responsive via text leading up to checking-in and during the stay. I would definitely stay here again.
