Perfect Location , Great Host , LOVED IT :)
Silvia's place is in a great location. Close to the cathedral & close to the bus stop, great local restaurants. She was very helpful all the time whenever I ask her. Even very late night checking in she waited for us.
The room's a very good size for 2pax.
I recommend her place for sure.
Welcome to their home.
Silvia's apartment was cute and arty, and very close to the old centre of Santiago, which was perfect. It was quite a busy road, but I expected this. But it's a good deal for a private room, and I slept soundly.
However communication wasn't great, which is a pity. I didn't hear back from Silvia when I messaged to arrange a meeting time a few days before the stay, so I ended up calling her the morning before, anxious to know what the arrangement was. If she hadn't picked up, I would have had to book another room. It's really important to get an acknowledgement message from hosts so you know it is all ok and going ahead.
Silvia's apartment (former gallery) was really beautiful and full of light! She had wonderful art there on the wall and nice old furnitures. She was really nice to us, she told us what to see in Galicia.
Only problem was that the place was really noisy. The apartment is on the ground and there is lot of traffic on the street. Cars and busses drive full speed there. But if you have the earplugs with you it doesn't bother a lot.
After all the location was perfect near the old town. And there were nice restaurants across this particular street.
La ubicación de la casa era perfecta, cercana a todo lo que hay que visitar pero al no estar justo en el centro histórico hacia que fuese un alojamiento muy tranquilo.
La habitación era muy espaciosa, independiente, muy bien decorada y la cama muy cómoda que eso también es importante.
Además tuvimos la suerte de poder aparcar el coche en la misma calle, así que todo fue fenomenal.
Silvia wasen't at home when we came, but she ask me by airbnb if everything was ok. The room was clean, and everything was like description.
Nos ha gustado muchísimo la habitación por sus muebles y cuadros. El trato fue excelente!
Sylvia was super-nice to us and it's too bad we couldn't stay longer. The room is in an old town house, very close to the historic centre of Santiago. Recommended!
We were very disappointed by our stay...
At first, everything seemed perfect : great localization, close to the pedestrian center of the city, nice street with old houses, large and bright room, all was as described in the flat description. We were nicely welcomed by Silvia wo lives at the last floor of her house. We were able to arrive when we wanted which facilitated our trip as we came from another place.
But soon we were disturbed by many things.... first, the place was full of children's drawings on the walls (which did not disturb us so much but we prefere signal it). Then, the bed (if we can call it a bed...). It is more like a mattress placed on two unpacker pallets ! And the mattress was dirty and not comfortable at all.
We could have slept well if it was only the bed that made a problem, but there was the noise too ! The street is very much frequented and buses pass frequently through it from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at least ! And Silvia's young child makes a lot of noise too (we can't ask him not to move but maybe Silvia should precise the age of her child in her announce...).
Last thing : we have been told in the description that we would have an independent bathroom and floor but it was not the case. Actually, the floor has two bedrooms. We never saw the other occupant of the second room but I noticed that he was using our bathroom too as he tried to enter while I was in (hopefully, door was closed!) and let another time the toilet flap up...
For all these reasons, we thought that the place did not deserve the price we paid for it... We can not say that it was horrible, because it was OK anyway, but the description is not correct and we did not sleep well...
