This loft is perfect for low-maitnence travelers who want to experience the city! Honestly the pictures under-advertise the amount of space in the apartment. Though certainly spartan, it contains everything an adventures traveler needs for a home base in Monterrey! Note that this is not a shared apartment, and you have access to your own fridge, microwave, bathroom, and deck (which has a gorgeous view of the city and moutains). Ruben has dogs (which you can hear barking when you arrive) but as a guest with heavy allergies there was no trace of there presence in the apartment.
You can easily hop a bus to downtown for about M$12/person, or catch a cheap cab anywhere in the city. Grocery stores are more difficult to find, but there is a delicious place for street food about ¼ mile away if you are willing to walk. The location is safe and provides easy access. A must for first-time travelers who want a cost-effective way to tour Monterrey!
Ruben is a great host and a very nice guy. He is responsive and deals with any issues that come up.
The apartment is in a safe neighborhood. The apartment is spartan but clean and safe. There is a microwave and refrigerator, air conditioner and heater. There is a balcony with a beautiful view of the city. Convenience stores are just a block or two away and there is a nice little chicken taco place called Taqueria Iberia 2 blocks away, and a superb full service restaurant: La Catarina, also just a short walk away.
I always felt safe and secure and definitely recommend Ruben's place as an option in Monterrey. Thanks, Ruben!
Great place, conveniently located and with a nice view of El Obispado and El Cerro de la Silla (the balcony is not small at all). The bed is super comfy and the bedroom very spacious. Ruben as a host was very attentive. Even though we didn’t get to talk a lot, he walked us through the apartment and told us everything we needed to know for our stay.
Tres bon sejours hote toujours disponible :)
Ruben is a very cook guest. You are always welcome.
