from downstairs

    Hello everyone,
    Can you help me say in Russian: The woman heard a sound from downstairs. ?
    If it is relevant, the flat she lives in has two storeys. So downstairs also makes part of her house; it's not just a floor at a lower level where other people live.

    My try: С (из?) нижнего этажа слышала женщина голос.

    As a side question: Can I somehow use the word внизу instead? Does something like 'отвниза' exist? (I'm just patterning off of отсюда.)

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you guessed almost right. The adverb which indicates the direction from down upwards is снизу.

    Женщина услышала голос, доносящийся снизу. - my suggestion.

    By the way, "sound" is not exactly голос, it is звук. I wrote голос, since I assumed that you meant it.
