Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Patricia is a gracious host, and the Shambala centre was perfect. Awesome views in the night on the rooftop terrace, comfy bed and even a living room space to get some work done!
    The downstairs is also an added bonus as if you're a yogi... You can do drop in classes or be invited to meditate!
    Highly recommend staying here! Also the jardin is about three minute walk!

    Thanks again Patricia and hope to see you soon!

  • We LOVED staying at Casa Shambhala. The space itself is beautiful, and the location was perfect for us. The meditation and yoga classes that took place downstairs posed no inconvenience; most of the time that they were happening, we weren't home anyway since we were out exploring San Miguel.

  • The place we stood at was nice and with in walking distance of everything, we felt so relaxed right when we walked in and knew that we had made the right choice. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and Patricia went out of her way to have everything ready in the early hours of the morning, she even had fresh fruit and flowers waiting for us. We felt so relaxed and refreshed there that we really did not want to leave, thank you Patricia for being a wonderful host

  • Casa Shanbala is a beautiful apartment, large, convenient, very well situated in the most beautiful part of SMA. The balcony offers a magnificent view, with vibrant, rich colours. For an artist, it was a real pleasure to spend a month there. The calm and tranquillity permitted me to write a book of poems and to paint around 10 watercolours. The people from the Meditation Centre were very welcoming and great hosts. I would readily go back if circomstances permit.

  • We had a lovely time in San Miguel. The location was great, a very quiet neighbourhood very close to the centre of town. The accommodations were well priced. The suite is spacious but could really use a facelift.

  • Patricia è una persona cordiale riceve gli ospiti con fiori e della
    frutta fresca. La sua casa è un pò vissuta ma accogliente, la
    posizione è perfetta per raggiungere il centro e dalle sue terrazze
    il panorama sulla città a 360 gradi è superbo.
    La cucina è ben attrezzata e la biancheria disponibile è più che
    sufficiente. Consiglio ai turisti italiani e non di prendere questo
    appartamento in ottima considerazione.

  • We had a great time!

    1. I tried Yoga for the first time downstairs :-)
    2. The internet connection in the living room is very strong and fast.
    3. A gas and an electric heater were provided for us that kept us warm on cold nights.
    4. Amazing location
    5. Friendly staff

    As mentioned in the ad, this apartment is above a meditation and yoga studio so there will be noise of people coming and going during class hours and you will be expected to be quiet upstairs - but the classes are not very often and we did not find it bothersome at all.

  • Casa Shambhala is comfortable and roomy with great light and is in an excellent location near to the Jardin, the focal point and center of San Miguel. I enjoyed the proximity to Yoga classes and meditation which facilitated making friends and finding out about all the many activities in town. San Miguel is a beautiful and sophisticated city with stunning architecture, great food, music and and friendly people. Casa Shambhala is a good value for the money.

  • I so enjoyed my stay at Patricia's apartment on Terraplen. The location couldn't be better, with just a 2 block walk to the Jardin. For the whole month, I felt I was in the heart of all the action. Patricia was very responsive to every concern I raised or question I posed. I felt well taken care of. I liked having an apartment above the Shambhala Center because there were people coming and going for yoga classes and meditation sessions. The apartment was very satisfactory with WiFi, a comfortable bed, a good shower, and a spacious kitchen. I love to cook, so was pleased to have lots of counter space, a good sized refrigerator, and a nice gas stove. The apartment was cleaned weekly which seemed sufficient. I enjoyed sitting on the patio off the kitchen for lunch and dinner, and going up to the terrace several times a day to soak in a gorgeous view of SMA. I have several suggestions to make the apartment even better. It would be nice if there was a coffee maker. Also I found that the lamp in the living room was really too dim to read by, so I didn't spend much time on the couch. Also I found the comforter on the bed to be too warm, but was able to find a single bed wool blanket in the closet to use. It would be nice to have some lighter weight blankets available that fit the bed. Also a radio would have been nice. It seemed awfully quiet sometimes.

  • I have been staying in Shambhala Center for almost 4 months. For me it became more than a standard apartment or hotel for a vacation. I feel like at home here. Particia, Margaretta and John are great people! They are always welcome to help. The atmosphere and the energy of the place is realy very special, you will definetly not forget this place. In an addition, it located in the city center and you will have everything you need for living (including unbelievable rooftop view (!!!)).
    I am very thankful to be here and meet Shambhala community. Gracias por todo!
