Solo soy Silvia
Great location. Clean, airy and spacious room. Although there is no private bathroom, but the shared bathroom is just one step out of our room.Wifi is good and strong in the room.
Although I don't speak Spanish and Silvia doesn't speak English, we still communicate well and understand each other.
Silvia's room in Jalatlaco, Oaxaca, was in an excellent location, just about a ten minute walk to downtown and other nice areas. The room was as pictured; the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of closet and shelf space. A large window with screens gave plenty of light and air, and the overhang above it allowed us to keep the window open even when it rained, so we never felt like we missed having air conditioning. The nearby bathroom, which we technically shared (though we never saw another guest). was roomy, clean, and had hot water. Silvia and her family were wonderful hosts. She was friendly and helpful, storing our ice pack in her freezer and calling a cab to take us to the airport. Though it helps to know some Spanish, Silvia makes a good effort to communicate and her son does speak English. We thought the room at Silvia's was a bargain and we would recommend it to anyone who wants comfort, cleanliness, a convenient location, and friendly hosts at a good price.
La habitación de Silvia en Jalatlaco, Oaxaca, estaba en una excelente ubicación, a sólo unos diez minutos a pie del centro y otras zonas agradables. La habitación era como aparece, la cama era cómoda y había mucho espacio de armario y espacio en los estantes. Un gran ventana con pantallas dio mucha luz y el aire, y el voladizo por encima de ella nos permitió mantener la ventana abierta, incluso cuando llovía, así que nunca nos sentimos como si nos perdimos tener aire acondicionado. El cuarto de baño cerca, lo que técnicamente hemos compartido (aunque nunca vimos otro huésped). era amplia, limpia, y tenía agua caliente. Silvia y su familia fueron unos anfitriones maravillosos. Ella era muy amable y servicial, el almacenamiento de nuestra bolsa de hielo en su congelador y llamar a un taxi para que nos llevara al aeropuerto. Aunque es muy útil saber un poco de español, Silvia hace un buen esfuerzo para comunicarse con su hijo habla Inglés. Pensamos que la habitación a Silvia era una ganga y nos lo recomendaría a cualquiera que quiera comodidad, limpieza, una buena ubicación y amables anfitriones a un buen precio.
Silvia's AirBNB rooms were a part of their family's home. We were made to feel welcome. I had concern over bathroom floor tiles, especially in the shower area that became extremely slippery when wet.
Silvia is a great host. We communicated with the little Spanish we knew but it was fine. She keeps the house super duper clean. The room is fantastic and very close to the ADO bus station (7min) and close to Zocola (less than 10 minutes). We loved staying here.
Silvia is a fantastic host, whatever you may need, or whatever you wish to know you can count on her to satisfy even the most curious traveler like me. The room is lovely and very clean with a wonderful view to the greenery of barrio Jalatlaco, with plenty of birds chirping away throughout the day.
The location is ideal, within walking distance from Santo Domingo (about 10 min), Zocalo, Benito Juarez market, and even closer to the park Juarez El Llano, and Jardin Hidalgo.
Oaxaca is an amazing place, every day there is something happening, either a musical or a cultural event; also from here you can plan daily trips (even by public transportation if you are in the adventurous side) to surrounding villages in case you are interested in the amazing local handicraft, or to Monte Alban if you are into pre-colombian civilizations, or to natural places such as Hierve el Agua.
Hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did!
Silvia's room was clean and comfortable and only a few minutes walk from the center of town. Enjoyed the stay very much! Silvia was a very nice and gracious host. Gracias Silvia!
La habitación de Silvia estaba limpio y cómodo, y sólo unos pocos minutos a pie del centro de la ciudad. Disfrutamos de la estancia mucho! Silvia era una muy agradable y amable anfitrión. Gracias Silvia!
Silvia is a very friendly and helpful host! Her house is near to the center of the city and the bus terminal. The room is quiet, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and recommend her place without hesitation!
Great location. Very clean house! Although we had difficulty communicating there were lots of smiles and our stay was very easy going. Silvia is a great host who was only too happy to help us out. Highly recommended!
la casa es muy acogedora, silvia es muy tranquilo, no tiene ningún problema con los horarios, el barrio muy tranquilo, muy cerca del centro.
Silvia is a great host, helpful and hospitable and keeps her house very clean. The room is huge and both terraces are great. There are plenty of "tiendas" close-by and in Jalatlaco's church there are many restaurants, coffee places, taquerías and a even an organic shop and café (Xiguela). Silvia's neighborhood is safe, beautiful -with cobbled streets and colored houses- and very close to the city centre! just 10 /15 minutes walking.
I highly recommend this place!
