*Get in touch for additional discounts!* 'Orquidea' is a huge room overlooking the courtyard of a colonial house in the historical centre of town. It is an orginal wooden floored room furnished with a comfortable double bed with cosy comforters, armchair & shares a bathroom, additional toilet and fully equipped kitchen.

The space
The house is a traditional colonial style house set around an open flower filled courtyard. The rooms overlook the courtyard so get a lot of light. Orquidea has storage space, a big armchair, double bed and a gorgeous view outside. The rooms share a kitchen and a small newly tiled bathroom (with shower and toilet) and a separate toilet which are accessed by crossing the patio to a small separate block. This is not a hostel, it is our family home but it is a big old building so we rent out the extra rooms (you can see our other listings for details and guest reviews). Please contact us for special offers on the weekly and monthly rate (sometimes the calendar will not always calculate it correctly).

Guest access
Guests have the use of the fully equipped kitchen and a shared bathroom plus an extra toilet next door. Guests have their own keys to their bedroom and front door and can come and go and they please. Guests also can also use big courtyard, there are tables and chairs outside. Occasionally, part of the courtyard space is used for some one-on-one Spanish classes (overflow from our school, normally 4-5 students ), but we will warn guests if this will occur, and they do not make much noise (nor do they use the shared facilities such as kitchen, guest bathroom or outdoor eating area).

Other things to note
- We have been informed the map is wrong and shows the house in a different area. It really is in zone 1, a few blocks from central park (5 mins walk)
- We offer further room for guests who study in our nearby Spanish school (please contact us for details)
-Shared kitchen (stove and full oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, free drinking water, tea from India (via England!) and real coffee)
- Shared tiled bathroom with electric shower (and we have a newly installed water deposit and pump onsite). You have to go across the courtyard to get to it.
- Towels provided
- Guests get keys to their room and the front door
- WIFI 24 hours, fast enough to watch videos or make online calls.
- Dog (attention seeking husky) and cat (couldn't care less about you unless you have food) hang out in the courtyard during the day.
- We encourage all guests to turn off lights when not using them, and to be conservative with their use of water. We use a ceramic water filter for drinking water so we don´t use plastic bottles, and energy saving lightbulbs throughout the house. We recycle cans and paper through a local recycling initiative and encourage our guests to correctly dispose of all their recyclable rubbish in the bags provided.

The house is on the main road between Central Park and Parque Calvario but as it is set around a courtyard it is quiet. Our favourite bakery/cafe/gelato place is a few blocks away (although it is one of many here!) The supermarket is 5 minutes and the post office just 2 minutes away. The automatic airbnb map is not always accurate, please go by the map image in the photo file and when you reserve the room you will get the full address, map link and full instructions on how to get to the house.
