We had an amazing time at Juan Carlos' condo! Barranco is a wonderful part of Lima with many shops and excellent restaurants. A few great ones just around the corner from the condo. The place is very clean and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed including laundry in the basement. Just be sure to get a token from the front desk to operate machines. Juan Carlos was a wonderful host, answering many questions and providing recommendations. The whole experience was great! Definitely stay here if you have a chance.
This apartment is exactly as it looks in the picture; hip and modern.
The apartment in Barranco is a perfect location. Close to museums in
Barranco and a taxi ride away from Miraflores or San Isidrio.
The key exchange was simple by picking it up with the doorman.
This accommodation is as perfect as staying at a hotel. JuanCarlos is an email or call away with any extra accommodations.
Special touches- electrical cords for speaker amplification to your laptop which was nice since we watched House of Cards! Only small drawback- No A/C. But we made it work with fans circulating throughout the apartment.
Overall a great stay. I'll break my review down into sections:
Quiet neighborhood in Barranco but short walk to restaurants and the Puente de los Suspiros. Our cab driver had a lot of difficulty finding it from the airport so it would be worth printing out directions and have those with you.
The doorman had the key waiting for us which was very convenient as we weren't sure exactly when we'd arrive. The apartment itself was very clean, perfect size for a couple. One thing to note is that there is no air conditioning. We were able to make do with the fans and opening the windows.
There is laundry in the building although we were not able to figure out how to work it. There is a laundromat a block away on Grau.
Cabs were also plentiful in the area. We had no difficulty getting to/from Miraflores and the other districts.
Coming to Lima with no expectations whatsoever, staying at Juan Carlos' place made this trip an amazing experience. Juan Carlos is extremely prompt, informative and kind. Prior to arrival he responded to email questions, and upon arrival he met us personally to show us the suite, gave us several local suggestions, where to eat, what to see, a personal map, and he even took us on a familiarization walk around the neighbourhood.
The suite is very clean and very well equipped. The location is excellent - located on a block that has several EXCELLENT eateries. Just a few minutes walk to a spectacular ocean view, and an easy 20 minute walk to central Miraflores district.
We always felt safe, day and night. The concierge/security guys were polite and helpful (calling cabs and helping with any requests). People were friendly in shops and restaurants.
We HIGHLY endorse Juan Carlos and Piso in Barranco. It truly made our Peru experience unique and memorable. We will definitely be back!
Amazing and comfortable apartment. Juan Carlos quickly answered our questions about finding a SIM card for my phone and how to travel around the country. There was even a cool pool for warm days. Thank you for a great stay!
We had a great time staying in Barranco!!! Juan Carlos was a great host, organizing a smooth check-in to his adorable condo in the "artsy" neighbourhood of Barranco. Juan Carlos's condo was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed for our stay and the location couldn't have been better. We walked to the restaurants, galleries and beach from his location. Juan Carlos even sent us suggestions of where to go for food and galleries. We really enjoyed Lima and were so happy to be in the heart of the Barranco neighbourhood!!! A huge thank you to Juan Carlos who was a great host!
Stylish, modern and impeccably clean apartment in great area of Barranco, surrounded by colonial houses and close to many superb restaurants and cafés. Felt very safe and well looked after by friendly doormen. Some road noise. Would highly recommend.
The apartment is great and the location is perfect. 5 stars. Thanks Juan Carlos.
Juan is a great guy. I recommend his apartment to anyone who is traveling to Lima. Every aspect of the apartment is great, you just name it - cleanliness, location etc. We had an accident while in Lima (our documents and credit cards were stolen), Juan assisted and helped us in this situation. Again, thank you very much Juan.
This is a tiny apartment in a great part of town! Juan Carlos was also very helpful in arranging pick-up from the airport and sending someone to resolve an issue with the plumbing. He also went above and beyond when we tried to make reservations for one of the restaurants in the city. Overall we had an awesome experience and would definitely consider staying here again should we come back to Lima!
