fully furnished rooms in city center apartment
very well located
I had a very spacious room in Lindsays appartment, with a tiny balcony... great for smokers! It's very centrally located in the neighborhood of Sopocachi, in the middle of everything with shops and supermarket close by. Lindsay is a very nice and friendly host and super helpful if you have any questions. Would stay there again! Thx!!
Bon séjour, appartement très bien situé. Personne sympathique et serviable. Je garde un très bon souvenir.
My goal travelling is to meet local people and as much as possible, to experience local life. Lindsay gave me exactly that. She was helpful, giving me a map and pointing out exactly what i wanted to see. She communicated really well via email and text and was warm and professional. But she also took me out one night and it was awesome! Just being with locals makes all the difference from being an extrajero. The bed was comfy, the room clean and the noise totally ok with ear plugs (normal city noise) or dies off as the city sleeps at midnight. This is a great place to stay. Thanks Lindsay!
Lindsay's apartment is conveniently located near Plaza Estudiantes, part of a major road running the axis of the city. It's near a street market selling fruit, vegetables, and other food. Restaurants, a supermarket, laundry are all nearby as well. The apartment itself is quite comfortable and the kitchen is small but functional, the bathroom airy and bright. There was an electric heater in my room which I was grateful for. There were two other tenants at the same time but they were not a problem. The apartment is in a small yellow building opposite a police department so security is not an issue. Lindsay was a good host who was friendly and helpful yet did not probe (the privacy and tranquility was precisely what I wanted). She even provided face and bath towels! As there is no bell to ring at the gate, be sure to call Lin before you reach so she can come down and open the gate.
Lindsay es muy amable y "helpful". Aunque mis planes de viaje cambiaron constantemente, me ayudò mucho y me dejò estar en su piso unos 3 dias. El piso es amplio, tiene buen gusto y es muy central. La habitaciòn donde me quedé es chiquita, pero fue perfecta para mì. Yo recomiendo mucho quedarse con Lindsay - ademàs es muy buena persona y muy simpatica.
Lindsay is a helpful host who accepted my reservation on short notice. She picked us up from the airport, gave us a mini tour on the way to her house, showed us around the apartment, and suggested some things to do. She is easily reachable as I think she works at home sometimes. She also called us a taxi to take us to the airport on the day we left.
Her place is located right near the main part of downtown La Paz, so it is very convenient to see the major sights, pick up food, and walk around, but also makes for a bit of noise and light pollution late into the night and early in the morning.
Excellent internet service and plenty of hot water in the shower. The building is very old, but I think that gives it the homey, real living feel. It's fairly clean for the age of the building, but it's definitely old and worn in.
I had only intended to book 1 room, but she gave us 2 which was a great bonus.
Overall, it was a good introduction for my first visit to Bolivia. (=
Lindsay is a great person, she made me feel at home in her place. I could ask her anything. She was always very helpful, reliable and kind. It's always been nice and interesting talking to her about life and work in Bolivia. I was supposed to move to another place but preferred to stay with her for longer. The appartment is simple but clean, spacious and very well located. Wifi works great. I can really recommend to stay with her.
We reserved 5 nights, but decided to look for something else after the first night. Although in a nice and central neighborhood, the appartment is in a bad state, and pretty noisy (there's a street corner nearby where cars constantly honk). The bed was so worn that we found it unsuitable for two persons to sleep in. On the plus side, although Lindsay was travelling, she organized both the taxi pickup (trustworthy but with 40 Bolivianos expensive) and the key handover, and kept in touch by phone and AirBNB messages. The living room and the dining room are spacious. The kitchen is fully equipped but could use a good clean. To conclude, we just expected a bit more given the price tag.
La casa es un apartamento compartido, normalmente los miembros del apartamento deben mantener los espacios en comun minimamente accesibles para todos, pero sabemos que es un poquito dificil, mantener las cosas en orden hasta el dia que la señora de limpieza viene a casa para hacer su trabajo. Creo que saber vivir en comunidad es saber ser tolerante y agradecidos con lo que los demas dan por los otros.
Yo (email hidden)ésped que esta en casa, y lo mas importante para mi es que usen todos los espacios, incluida la cocina, ya que es algo que es realmente necesario cuando estamos en viaje y no me molesto por un poco de grasa que se limpia.
I had a very good time in La Paz. Lindsay is a great host! She came to pick me up from the bus stop and gave me a lot of helpful information. The appartment it very large, my room was very nice, quiet and clean. WIFI was perfect. I shared the kitchen and the bathroom with 3 other guests, which was fine. The appartment is located in the center of the city. It is a safe arrea. I could leave my luggage while I went to Coroico. So everything was perfect. I can highly recommand to stay at Lindsay s home.
We had a great time staying in Lindsey's flat. She made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed going to a local bar with her and our housemates. Lindsey also gave us advice on how to visit La Isla Del Sol in the way that the locals do, saving us a lot of money on a tour and meaning that we had an authentic experience.
We had plenty of space in the flat, with a huge desk to work at which is big enough for two people to share. The flat is in a good location and there's a friendly atmosphere between the housemates. Thanks Lindsey!
