Journey Jotters

Bitten by the travel bug

The JJ family stayed in Queretaro for three nights and we used this Airbnb apartment during this time. It was a walkable distance from most of the sites in the area. And we felt safe at night, walking to and back from dinner.

Dining area

The address given to us was not quite clear and we spent quite a bit of time trying to track it down. Eventually, Uriel and Ana were able to locate the owner and got proper directions.

The apartment was large and airy but felt outdated and tired. There were no elevators to reach the second floor where it was located. The front door was a little hard to open and close but remained secure during the stay.

Living area

There was a large living room with a dining area. This opened into a decent sized kitchen with a range, microwave, small fridge, and a coffee maker. The kitchen wasn’t inspiring enough to cook but the light from the terrace made it very bright.


There were three bedrooms in all, a master with two others with twin beds. The children each claimed one and we took the master which had an en suite bathroom. Down the hallway, were a half bath and another bathroom with a shower stall.

The second morning, we had to spend quite some time figuring out how to get the water heater to work. Eventually, we found the switch located in a box on the terrace, but it took some exploring first. The master bathroom had a faint musty odor to it but was otherwise functional. The second full bath was clean but the drain in the shower stall was too slow. The water tended to pool around our feet during the shower.

The two bedrooms were good sized and comfortable as was the master. The dining area was comfortable with a large table. The couch in the living area was well worn. There were some books on the shelves but we didn’t have the time to explore them.

The master bedroom

The apartment served our purpose as far as providing shelter for the night and a place to put our feet up. It was serviceable, if not fashionable.
