The space
THIS LISTING IS FINALLY BACK ON AIRBNB AFTER A LONG-TERM RENTAL(late 2018 - mid 2021)
----------------------------------
Smart mini-apartment that allows people visiting Arequipa to have a completely independent and SAFE experience at a great price.

Do you really want to risk staying in a 100 year old property in a considerably earthquake-prone city like Arequipa? how about staying in a 15 floor overcrowded condo sharing packed areas and elevators with strangers? Trust me, in times like these you definitely don't want that.

You will be renting an entire mini apartment, completely private and independent.

It's located on the THIRD floor of an anti-seismic modern construction (FYI an elevator is NOT available, it's ONLY accessible by stairs)

For your peace of mind and health concerns during these difficult times, the apartment comes totally clean and 100% DISINFECTED

Prior to your arrival, cleaning of the apartment is carried out complying international bio-safety hotel-like standards such as: ULV Fog (micro-drops) with the latest generation quaternary ammonium sanitizing solution (highly effective against viruses like COVID-19 and bacteria) to all environments and surfaces; we carry out constant ozone treatments to the apartment as well.

We have acquired our own equipment and special machinery for this purposes, so you can be sure this is done correctly and every time we are about to welcome a new guest. I have been working in the hotel industry for over 12 years now, so I've applied some it's best standards in my apartments.

The only public areas (shared with other guests) are the main entrance to the building, staircases and part of the rooftop area in case you need to go out for a quick smoke, sunbathe or leave your garbage bags in the corresponding container.

Located less than 15 min. away from Plaza de Armas (main square) through a cheap taxi ride ($2 USD = S/ 7-8 soles per ride) or S/ 1 sol (less than $0.30 USD per person) if you take feel like using public transportation.

Very close (short walking distance) to the city's biggest shopping malls, supermarkets, movie theaters, great restaurants, coffee shops and a 24/7 market w/ ATM.

Apartment has it's own unit number and an intercom doorbell, perfect if you feel like ordering food or have anything delivered.

It's a modern and FULLY FURNISHED mini apartment ideal for traveling solo or as a couple or even as a family of 3, but please keep in mind before booking the apartment that you need to input the exact number of persons that will be staying the apartment in order to get the correct price

WHY RISK RENTING A HOTEL/HOSTEL ROOM, EITHER PRIVATE OR, WORST OF ALL, SHARED, WHEN YOU CAN HAVE AN ENTIRE PRIVATE APARTMENT FOR A SIMILAR PRICE OR EVEN LESS?
----------------------
FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE AREAS:

It's a 01 bedroom apartment that has a comfortable double bed (comes made with fresh linen and towels) featuring an attached bathroom with hot shower available 24/7, it also has 2 closets with hangers and a 42 inches TV with cable. The bedroom receives great sunlight in the mornings.

Near there, the kitchenette area can be found, which has a ready to use 4 burner stove, cooking pot, frying pan (includes basic cooking utensils, some salt and cutlery, plates and glassware for two) it has a kitchen sink with a dish rack drainer, a countertop water faucet filter, standard refrigerator, mini toaster oven, a small 04 cup electric coffee maker, an electric kettle, a blender and a microwave oven.

A dining counter bar with two swivel bar stools to eat and/or use a computer can be also found

The small living room features a sofa bed, and a 40 '' Full HD smart TV with cable and NETFLIX (though you'll need to use your own account) near there the guest bathroom (half bath) can be found, here you will also find the washing machine (detergent or any other washing supplies are NOT included) washer is just a free extra bonus, especially for long stays, so please take care of it and use it only if you really need to.

Clothes will come out almost dry from the washer, but since having a dryer its not usual here, especially with this kind of sunny weather throughout the year, keep in mind that there is a drying rack inside the washing room where you can hang your clothes and let them air dry with the windows open.

Note: Carpets and rugs throughout the apartment have been removed in order to keep an allergy-free environment and also to facilitate cleaning and disinfection tasks. Also the pictured sofa in the living room has been replaced with a new sofa bed.
-----------------------------------------
The apartment comes properly cleaned, disinfected and arranged for every new guest, but please keep in mind that guests are the only one responsible for its proper cleaning and maintenance during their stay.

To make this task easier a broom, dustpan, mop and a toilet brush are provided.

You'll also find some soap, shampoo and a roll of toilet paper for each bathroom but only for the first day of your stay, please take this as a welcome courtesy, once you run out of any of the items provided you will need to buy some from the pharmacy downstairs or any other shop/market nearby.
------------------------
Here you can rest, work, cook, take a hot shower, relax on the couch, watch TV, order pizza, etc. just like you would do at home.

There is NO CURFEW (you can come in and out whenever you want).

Compared to the ''(not so)Private Room'' listings or dangerously crowded, hostel bunk beds with shared and cold showers, this is really a no-brainer. Go ahead and compare us with other listings, especially with those that might ''seem'' cheaper at first but in reality they have a catch with the privacy terms, expensive cleaning fee, or something hidden, here you get the best bang for your buck, check out and take advantage of our weekly and monthly super discounts which are automatically applied once you select your dates.

Our location is great, NOT FAR at all from Arequipa's main square, in a safe and strategic area, close to everything

Arequipa's Main Square (Plaza de armas) is less than 15 min. soles taxi ride away (S/ 7 soles = $ 2 USD per ride), or a 45 minute walk for our eco friendly guests (less than 5 km)

Arequipa is a small city (distance wise) don't be mistaken by the map or fooled by taxi drivers, we are close to everywhere you might plan/need to visit.

Location and distances from/to the apartment are also VERY CLEAR in the announcement so please keep that in mind before rating the location after your stay.
------------------------------------------------
We have one of the BEST quality-price ratio for Airbnb listings in Arequipa (do you really need a pool or a gym for your stay? trust me, you might wont even get the chance to use them at all so make a smart choice!)

Where you’ll be

José Luis Bustamante District, Arequipa, Peru

On the first floor of the building you can find a very well known Drugstore-Pharmacy called INKAFARMA, to buy medicines and personal hygiene supplies at the best prices available

Right next to the main entrance of the building down the corner you will find a small bakery to buy fresh bread or some desserts open after 5 pm, perfect for Netflix and chill after a busy day walking around.

A 24/7 well stocked mini market named LISTO is also just around the corner where you can even pay by credit card or cash, it also has an ATM on site. This kind of 24/7 markets are very rare in Arequipa and you'll be lucky to have one just one block away from the apartment, I personally find this very useful as you never know when you will find yourself in need of a beer or craving a burger or a snack in the middle of the night.

Building is also located less than 8 minute walk (OR a 2 minute taxi ride) to the largest and best shopping mall in town, Mall Aventura Porongoche, and a 15 minute walk (OR a 4 minute taxi ride) to the Parque Lambramani Shopping Mall.

It takes less than 10 minutes by taxi to/from the bus terminal (terrapuerto), less than 15 minutes taxi ride from downtown Arequipa (Plaza de armas) and 35 minutes away from the Rodriguez Ballón airport by taxi.

I'm a hospitality manager, and as much as I love the hotel experience, lately I prefer Airbnb when traveling around, in fact I tried combining the best of both worlds in each one of my listings, and so far it has worked out nicely, but how about I let you be the judge for that? I'm truly convinced that there's always something new and interesting to learn from people coming from other cities or cultures. I love dogs, enjoy collecting video game consoles, and pretty much anything related to technology and the tourism industry in general. Check out my reviews and listings so you can make the best choice, I already look forward to meet you in person, thank you for checking out my profile. Good riddance! ------------------------------ Soy especialista en administración de servicios de hospitalidad y licenciado en turismo y hotelería. Me fascina la experiencia de hospedarse en un hotel, aunque últimamente vengo usando Airbnb para mis viajes dentro y fuera del país, lo que me ha llevado a comprender de mejor forma aquello que la gente espera al reservar un espacio por este medio. Me encantan los animales, especialmente los perros, mi pasatiempo favorito es coleccionar consolas de video juegos y también me apasiona todo lo que tenga que ver con tecnología y la industria del turismo en general. Espero tener el agrado de conocerte en persona, gracias por revisar mi perfil y mis anuncios, te deseo mucha suerte en tu búsqueda y en tu próximo viaje!

During your stay

I live at the same building in one of the upstairs apartments and I am always willing and available to happily help or talk with my guests if they need me, please know that I totally respect and value other people´s privacy and my own, since this is an entirely independent apartment rental.

I enjoy making other people feel comfortable and have an amazing experience here in my town, either if they are here for tourism or business.

Don't go through the awkward hassle of having to communicate with signs or not knowing what your Airbnb host wants to tell you or vice versa because of the language barrier, with me you wont have that problem. I speak very good English and of course native Spanish, but if you dont speak any of these languages, dont worry, nothing technology and a translator app can't solve ;)

I'm available for you 24/7 or I will have somebody I trust to take care of you if I'm not in town.
