I m gonna make it clear and simple:
Nice & quiet host
Room: stinky blanket, dirt & dust behind bed, iron but no iron table.
Bathhroom: very small/uncomfortable shower, no promised toiletteries/amenities nor bottle of water, cheap toilet paper.
Apartment actually not in San Isidro, but in Lince district. 1st & 2nd day strong unpleasant cleaning smell.
But what you see on pictures is what you get.
Apartment just interesting if you wanna be near the financial area & ready to put up with the above.
The flat is in a lovely neighbourhood with a decent supermarket 5 mins away and a bakery & lavenderia available across the road. Kennedy Park, Miraflores is like a 20-25 min walk away and 5 mins away is the 28 de Julio Metropolitana Bus stop which can take you to Barranco in a further 5 minutes or Lima downtown in 15-20 for S/.2.50.
The flat itself is fairly basic and void of decoration so it doesn't have a homely feel but it was at a good price point so that matters less. If you're intending to cook, beware the kitchen was lacking some crucial things needed: cutting knives, chopping boards, large plates, sieve, etc. However it does come with a really cool wifi device that you can take out of the flat and therefore have internet anywhere in Lima; it's not super fast by any means but it's decent enough to do basic work on and stream the odd thing during in the evening.
The block itself has a guy on the door 24/7 and security is really not a worry in the area anyway. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was decent with hot water when you need it. Be sure to get some fresh fruit from the stand outside.
The hosts themselves were very welcoming and stayed in touch during the stay to make sure everything was ok.
Buena comunicación y buen trato con Carmen y su hijo. El apartamento está bien situado y es bastante confortable.
This was a great little place in miraflores. If you are looking for something fancy it isn't for you, but for the price it can't be beat. It was located really close to a metropolitano stop and supermarket, and was walkable to the water and kennedy park (20-30 min by foot). The neighborhood felt safe and there was a doorman watching the building. The hosts were incredible. They were super helpful when we arrived, giving us all the information we needed to get around as well as making sure we had everything we needed. They checked on us a couple times through the week via airbnb and were accomodating to our late flight time. The internet was excellent and they even had a portable router that you could take with you out of the apartment. The kitchen had a pretty basic selection of appliances and utensils, but it was plenty for us to make our simple meals.
Nice little apartment in a very convenient location. Next to restaurants, markets, Larcomar and the Metropolitano.
Right on our arrival, Carmen and her son gave us an overview of the Lima, like how to get around buy the Metropolitano, what we should expect to pay for the taxi to some places, etc...
We had a little inconvenience with the keys but Carmen solved it promptly and efficiently. Just make sure to get her second mobile number.
Good place to stay in Lima.
The price is ok, the location is great and the hosts are nice people. If you want something elegant in a nice building, this is not the place for you, but if you want a comfortable place in a good location, you'll enjoy this suite.
A lot lot Traffic noise and 5 flights of stairs to walk up.
El departamento está muy bien ubicado, a un precio muy acomodado. La atención de Carmen fue excelente, y pudimos disfrutar unos días muy lindos en Lima. Hasta tuvimos una tarjeta de transporte para poder movilizarnos usando el Metropolitano. No se pierdan las delicias de la panadería ubicada abajo del edificio! Y en la esquina hay un banco y cambistas donde consiguen mejor cambio que en el aeropuerto. Imperdible: Larcomar y el centro de Miraflores que están muy cerca. Que lo disfruten!
The studio apartment was great. The room was comfortable, clean and conveniently located. It was a good place to stay.
