We initially wanted to rent Roy's place listed on Airbnb for our 2-day stay in Xalapa, but it was taken, so Roy offered us another apartment above his bicycle shop. It was a huge apartment with 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and one toilet. The apartment was usually rented …

Roy's place is very well located, Roy is an excellent host, always aware of his guests. The place is cossy and clean, with all what you need to spend a nice time. There's also a cafeteria (Bici Cafe)-Roy's too- with great coffee and a great cheese cake!

This is in a great location for seeing the center of Xalapa. It's only a couple blocks from the main street and it's easy to walk to lots of places to eat, parks, grocery store and the cathedral. It was enough space for my family of two adults and two small kids. It's in a courty…

Response from Roy:
Thanks for your comments and please forgive the details. My wife and I, as well as our three grandchildren were on our dream trip in Spain. I also had a uruguayan bicycle adventurer living for almost two months in the apartment and domestic duties were definitelty not one of his priorities. Right now we are still in Mexico City with our daughter who just got back from Madrid(she was also with us on our trip). Any other commentaries are greatly appreciated. ¡Hasta pronto!

Roy location is excelent. There were some details ( I believe there will be details always ) but after talking with Roy all of them were solved and that IMHO is extraordinary and commendable.

Response from Roy:
Guadalupe is absolutely right that communication is paramount in AirBnB, and fortunately we were able to resolve the details so that their stay in Xalapa could be very positive. I thank him very much for his kind understanding and we hope they will come back to Xalapa very soon. ¡Hasta pronto!

Roy’s casita is a great place to stay to explore Xalapa. It is in el centro and Roy and the people who assist him are super-helpful and attentive to guests. The apartment is just as pictured and has everything you need. The iron-working workshop on site is fascinating and the opp…
