  • Siboney's place was great! Exactly what we needed for a short 3 day stay. The place was very clean and very close to the downtown core area. We really appreciated the little extra touches such as the chocolates and popcorn that Siboney provided. She also provided lots of pamphlets about local restaurants and places to visit which was super helpful. Overall a great place to stay and we would highly recommend to anyone!

  • We really enjoyed Siboney's place! Attending a conference at the convention center was fast-paced, crowded and a little stressful. Siboney's place provided a great respite from the hustle & bustle.

  • Loved the size and location of this studio. Right by the river which is a lovely way to walk into Downtown, especially when the sun is shining. Siboney was very accommodating on our arrival times which can be quite difficult to determine on a road trip. She was very helpful by leaving lots of information packs for us and we loved the little touches set up like the handmade local soaps and fairy lights in the bathroom.
    All in all, highly recommended.

  • This is a lovely, private space for one or even two people. Siboney was very responsive and available, even though we never actually met. It's about 15 blocks from the Convention Center, perfect for me. If you have a car, you can park for free on the streets about two blocks from the Center. Nice restaurants nearby.

  • Siboneys place was great, some nice places to eat at walking distance and only a short cab ride to downtown and the river walk , although I enjoyed walking there myself, about 20 mins. Gunther house around the corner is amazing for breakfast or afternoon tea and cakes . Strongly recommend this place to anyone .

  • It was a pleasure being at Siboney's. We were fortunate enough to be probably the last airbnb guests for a while, as her roommate was moving into the little apartment once we left. The location is glorious in the historic German settler's King William neighborhood. It was quite and the aircondition worked wonders at night in the San Antonio summer heat. She prepared great material and there was even some coffee, tea and little snacks for the weary traveler after an almost 20 hour plane trip. The only downside was that both Siboney and we were so busy that we never managed to meet while we were there for a whole week. I would have loved to get to know her in person. Good luck Siboney with what ever you do and if you get a chance, keep offering a place for airbnb. You are a great host!

  • Thanks so much Siboney! Your place is gorgeous, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay in San Antonio. We hope to stay during our next visit as well. The area is fantastic as well. It just doesn't get any better than your studio. We had an amazing time!

  • Wow wow wow! What can be said for this place? Perfect studio, perfect location and perfect host! Siboney is so so lovely, the studio is gorgeous (we actually were tempted to move right in) and it's in a really great neighbourhood. Siboney has put together some great information for things to see and do in San Antonio, so we certainly weren't at a loss for what to do after we saw the Alamo. I'm positive that this is the only place to stay in San Antonio, and we definitely will stay again when we come back!

    August 2013
  • This is a very beautiful studio in a great location! You can walk to the riverwalk and many restaurants. The host, Siboney was also very welcoming when we arrived, definitely recommend this place!

  • What can I say other than WONDERFUL! Nice clean space, great location, sat outside for coffee every morning before we headed out for the day. The neighbors, Mike and Cotton are wonderful people. Siboney did things that were well beyond what could have been asked for or expected, when we arrived there were cold drinks in the fridge for us and after traveling all day from Boston I can't tell you how awesome that was. Then I had a wardrobe malfunction on the way to my brothers military retirement gathering and she ran into her house and grabbed a safety pin for me - truly saved the night! Thank You so much Siboney, Mike, and Cotton - and let's not forget their nice dog Molly and their little kitten for their hellos and welcomes :o)
