Yo soy de Panamá, Pero he vivido toda mi vida en Perú, soy arquitecto de interiores, y diseñador.
Awesome location. Many restaurants, bars and cafes. There were two supermarket chains not far from the room: Wong and Vivanda.
Gonzalo and his wife were very helpful and friendly.
Gonzalo's place is located on a quiet residential street that doubles as a culinary destination. There are a dozen dining destinations within a five minute walk, as well as a gigantic (and beautiful) Wong supermarket that will sell you anything you ever wanted to buy. (I grabbed a couple of bottles of Pisco there to take home!) The room itself is very private, having it's own lock and being separated by a courtyard from other units. It was very comfortable, with a recently remodeled bathroom and a shower with good water pressure. Gonzalo offered a complete "American" breakfast every morning, which kept me tided over well until lunch. When it came time to adventure out into the city, I found that the Metropolitano bus--which goes up to the city center for the sights, or down to Miraflores for dining and nightlife--was only 15 minutes away. I even discovered that the walk to Miraflores for the weekend markets or the beach was only 30 minutes or so, and very safe and pleasant. All in all, this was an excellent choice for a short stay in Lima. And Gonzalo is super-friendly!
We received great service during the two nights we stayed at Casa de Huespedes San Isidro B&B. Though it was well past midnight when we first arrived, Gonzalo was up to show us the room and facilities including wifi passwords etc. we had an early start the next day and Gonzalo was obliging enough to serve us breakfast at 5.30 a.m. He in fact did this both morning of our stay; breakfast was well prepared and well served. Gonzalo went out of his way to drop us at the bus station in the morning because taxis were difficult to find at that time. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, had fully functional A/C, ample closet space, a kitchenette and mineral water bottles. The bathroom was clean and included toilet tissue, soap as well as laundered towels. The only issue with the bathroom was that it was difficult to adjust the temperature of the shower. However this was a minor issue compared to our overall experience which, thanks to Gonzalo, was great; would recommend this BnB.
This was my very first trip to Lima, Peru, and I couldn't dream of a better place to stay! The room was incredibly spacious and clean, and with all relevant amenities. Also, Gonzalo has been a fantastic and friendly host.
I would highly recommend Gonzalo's place.
Gonzalo was very generous in picking me up from the airport and arranging a taxi for my return.
The room itself is very big with a small kitchen and bathroom. There is plenty of closet space, and it's all very clean.
A big plus is that there is A/C, which was nice because it was so hot when I was there, but also nice because it blocked out the noise from the two restaurants below. The room is in part of a little "compound" that Gonzalo's family owns, and it's set back from the street, which is busy-ish. There are a number of rooms in addition to the two restaurants (one Turkish and the other a pizza restaurant). The room where I stayed faces the courtyard.
The place is in San Isidro on a street with a lot of restaurants and stores. It's probably about halfway between the central plaza downtown and the Larcomar, the shopping mall built into the cliff overlooking the ocean in Miraflores. It's very close to Arequipa, which is the main street that goes from the center down to Miraflores.
Gonzalo was very friendly and fixed a big breakfast for me. He was also always around to let me in. He's built several rooms for guests and is looking for more people to stay there, so give him a shot!
Our friend Marco was very pleased to have stayed at Gonzalo's apartment. Gonzalo is very helpful and made the check in very smooth. He is also very flexible in regards to arrival. Location is good and safe. We would definitively use it again.
Located in a beautiful, safe, leafy neighborhood just a few blocks from stores, local produce and meet market, great restaurants, and the main bus route to Miraflores neighborhood, this place is a really excellent base for working or isiting the city. They also offer an excellent breakfast and called a cab for me for the airport. All-around great experience.
I loved the place! Gonzalo and his girlfriend are wonderful, the location is great, breakfast is abundant and delicious, everything was perfect.
Excelente ubicación y anfitriones súper amables y acogedores, si vuelvo por Lima no hay duda de que repetiré!
Cuartos muy bonitos, excelente servicio con personas que no duden en ayudar mas alla de lo mencionado.
Room was clean , staff was helpful, conveniently located, secure. Somewhat noisy during our stay as they were adding rooms to building. Breakfast was good. We appreciated use of phone in room during our stay. Thanks
