Una casa muy linda ubicada en una zona segura. Es como quedarse en un museo de arte, hay cuadros y obras por toda la casa. Los dos cuartos son amplios y se encontraban en condiciones muy limpias. Rubén muy atento, tiene todo preparado para sus huéspedes. Como el clima estaba templado, no utilicé ni la calefacción ni el aire acondicionado, así que no podría comentar al respecto. Lo único malo que le veo al lugar es que el agua de la regadera sólo se mantiene caliente por 5 minutos, así que para alguien que tarda más tiempo en bañarse y que tenga planes de visitar Monterrey en invierno, podría ser algo molesto.
Ruben's home is spacious. The high ceilings and attention to natural lighting are excellent and the interior patios are stunning. The neighborhood is clean, safe and there are a lot of cab's for quick access to San Pedro and El Centro.
While we did not meet Ruben he was VERY ATTENTIVE to messages and replies almost instantly. His mother is a sweat-heart as well; as she lives above the unit.
The apartment is indeed very nice and cozy. The living room receives a great amount of light during the day. The setup is basic and had everything I needed. Roma is a great neighborhood - having been to Mexico City twice before, I specifically wanted to stay there - and the price for this apartment is excellent.
I did not get to meet Ruben in person, but he was prompt and clear in his messages. Virginia - a nice, shy lady who takes care of the building - was helpful and easy to interact with.
Two things I feel I have to mention:
- I had to replace a lightbulb in the bedroom. It was easy to do and cost close to nothing.
- I ran into Virginia, two men and another woman exiting Ruben's apartment one morning. Ruben had informed me earlier that someone people might stop by to check on the shower in the apartment (apparently, it was leaking into the apartment below). Everyone was very nice and polite. One of the men was the landlord of the building. The landlord asked me if I paid to stay in the apartment. Per Ruben's request, I told the landlord that I was Ruben's friend and was staying at his house as a guest.
Wasn't able I stay here, problems with the car at the border, but communication was fast and he understood. Great guy
The host canceled this reservation 56 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was a great experience and a very inspiring place to stay because of both the art and the architecture of the House. Ruben was both friiendly and helpful. There is not much to do in the area but is does not matter because of location in between the centre and San Pedro, both easy accessible by taxi.
Excelente el hospedaje muy buena persona el anfitrión, muy al pendiente de si tenia alguna duda con respecto a la casa sin duda la casa es impecable y demasiado hermosa la verdad te hace sentir como en casa. Recomendaría mil veces hacer tratos con el.
El lugar donde esta la casa es una zona muy tranquila para pasar un fin de semana tranquilo igual que lo que dice la descripción del anuncio.
Great basic apartment in a great area. The value is unmatched for Roma. Ruben responded promptly to my messages and accomdated my booking at the last minute. Thanks!
Location: As advertised, this is a mixed residential/industrial area that felt safe and was surprisingly quiet. Convenience stores, ATM's and taxis are nearby.
House: Excellent space with high sloping ceilings, good lighting and ample rooms. Kitchen is easy to use with masses of utensils, plates, glasses, etc. Unfortunately no hot water to wash the dishes and some drawers frustrate.
Host: We communicated mostly by text... Ruben was always prompt, courteous and informative. Helpful information about the house is conspicuously posted.
Overall: Excellent value and I would return, except in Summertime as there is no a/c.
The location of the place is fantastic, nice and safe residential area close to pretty much everything. Rubén was always in touch if something was needed and he even offered me and my girlfriend to stay at his bigger unit in the same house called "amazing place to stay in Monterey" and the place was fabulous, very artistic, big and clean. I would say my only disappointment was the shower system that, as he clarifies, the hot water only lasts for a few minutes which was very inconvenient specialy for woman. It's just not possible to take a good relaxing shower. Overall the place is great and I would recommend it.
La locación es fantástica, muy seguro y cercano a todo. Rubén siempre estuvo en contacto si se necesitaba algo e incluso nos ofreció su otra unidad que es más grande llamada "amazing place to stay in Monterrey" y pues estaba fabuloso, muy artístico, espacioso y limpio. Considero mi única decepción el sistema de la regadera, como el indica, el agua caliente solo dura unos pocos minutos lo cual era muy incómodo sobre todo para damas. Es imposible poder tener una buena y relajante ducha. En resumen el lugar es bueno y muy recomendable.
thanks for your comments erick! I am planning to change the water heating system before the next winter! cheers!
Ruben is the ideal guest to have. He is discrete, quiet and independent. He fitted in with our way of life and was interesting to talk to. We wish him the best in his film-making and were delighted he enjoyed his stay. Many thanks Ruben and hope to see you again.
Nora and Conor.
Ruben is a very cook guest. You are always welcome.
