Independent&nice studio in a 17th c. colonial bldg. The studio has not much natural light - an old Arab-Andalucian cooling system brought from Spain almost 500 years ago to preserve the heat off during the hottest months.
Churches, museums, restaurants, bars, markets, fun&services within walking distance. Nothing beats living downtown & being able to stay out until very late in a 100% safe area.
All races, religions, sexual orientation, gender, nationalities, etc. are welcome. Hate free zone :)

The space

Reading-room in a loft (VERY low ceiling as you can see in the picture); BR with a queen size bed + linen (fresh towels & sheets provided once per week); dining balcony; good size bathroom; kitchenette with a gas range, mini-fridge, toaster, pots, pans, and basic cookware.

Guest access

You may come and go any time of day and night using your own set of keys.

Interaction with guests

Just ask what, where, when, how to get things and to places, and we will gladly direct you because we know Oaxaca like the back of our hands - and we will be glad to speak Spanish with you if you wish to practice the language with us :)

Other things to note

The studio is part of a family dwelling, and therefore you should expect normal noise during regular hours, but it´s quiet (and dark) after 10:00 p.m.

Irma and her son were so helpful and welcoming. The apartment is pure Oaxaca, from the location to the decor. I would definitely stay here again!

Location could not have been better. Carlos was incredibly hospitable and helpful during our stay. We had a small issue with the door lock breaking and Carlos was able to help that night. A gorgeous little gem in the heart of Oaxaca

Irma's place is as pictured in her listing. Great location and check in was super easy with great communication; Irma speaks perfect English. The ceilings are low but in some areas of the unit but that wasn't an issue for us. Overall a good, basic apartment right in the center of the city with a friendly host.

Our experience at Irma and Carlos' place could not have been better. First of all, the location is fabulous, just 3 blocks from the Zocalo center, as described. You can walk anywhere you'd want to go within the city from the house - we didn't need to take a cab once! The house itself is beautiful, with a gorgeous courtyard and incredibly sweet yellow lab Max. The apartment was perfect for my husband and me who were in Oaxaca for our honeymoon. We enjoyed having our own little kitchen and an outdoor terrace to relax on. There is even access to the roof from the apartment where you can check out gorgeous view of the city! Irma and Carlos are both the absolute sweetest and were so accommodating making sure we were comfortable and giving us tips for enjoying the city. My husband and I can't recommend this place enough!!

Irma's room was a great place to stay during our time in Oaxaca. The room was beautiful, and helped us feel enmeshed in the local Oaxacan culture and town. The location was also great, as everything felt so easy to walk to with a great central location to everything that Oaxaca de Juarez has to offer. Highly recommend!

Irma's place is a wonderful hidden gem neselted near the heart of Oaxaca's historic district. There are plenty of galleries, museums, churches, restaurants, shops and parks within walking distance that will keep you busy. The accomodations are perfect for those seeking to experience a stay in the perspective of the locals. Irma is very helpful and has great suggestions for any requests you may have. I will looking to stay at Irma's place next time I visit Oaxaca.

We had a wonderful time at this lovely apartment. Irma and Carlos were fine hosts, providing us with great suggestions for dining and such. The apartment is everything we could have wanted, and in a 400 year old building just 3 blocks from Oaxaca's vibrant, beautiful Zocalo. We can't recommend it highly enough and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else next time we're in Oaxaca. Thanks Irma and Carlos!
