The hotel was clean, check in easy once the night staff woke up. It is close to the Larcomar shopping centre where you could eat a meal overlooking the ocean and beaches. My biggest concern was the noise. The street traffic and cars honking horns went on until late in the evening. Then the garbage collection started near 5am. (I... More

This was our first hotel on a 6 week trip to S.America and it was a very satisfactory introduction to the quality that can be expected of a 2/3 star hotel. The location is ideal as it is in the Miraflores district of Lima which is a safe neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants/shops and very close to the Larcomar center.... More

Calling a 2 star hotel a boutique hotel is an exercise in magical thinking. We were on a 3-week, small-group tour of Peru and stayed here a total of 4 nights, 2 nights at the beginning of the tour and 2 nights a week later. The public areas were comfortable, I wish I could say that for the room. The... More

Predominantly used by group tours, the rooms were clean and the showers hot, and the staff friendly (excellent English at reception) and helpful. Breakfasts were arranged early at travellers' convenience. Location is in the leafy suburban part of Lima, with a few excellent restaurants dotted around (you'll need to search), and easy access to cafes and markets. Airport journey a... More

we stayed in this hotel twice during our tour of Peru and both times had a comfortable room. The room size was good, the beds were good, the shower was excellent and the place is very clean and modern. The reception is quite small however, so more than a few people checking in at the same time causes a melee... More

I stayed at this hotel September 2,3,4 and again September 28 and 29 during my recent trip to Peru. I found the hotel to be pretty quiet, even with my streetside room. The hotel was booked by the travel agent in Lima. There seem to be two different parts of the hotel. On one side the rooms are smaller, on... More

A small and conveniently located hotel in the Miraflores area of Lima. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable, the self service breakfast buffet was good. The hotel is busy with people transiting on onwards to elsewhere in Peru and used by more than one major tour company and tended to be noisy with people vacating their rooms in... More

The hotel rooms were basic, with a bed and side tables, but comfortable and clean. The bathroom was modern, plenty of hot water and again clean and tidy. Buffet breakfast was a good choice of items, bread, cereals, cake, cold meat/cheese and eggs/sausages/potatoes, standard fair really, but better than some hotels in Peru. Reception staff were helpful and friendly and... More

The hotel is perfectly located, in a quiet neighbourhood just a few minute walk away from the city centre with shops, bars, restaurants and banks. The interior is simple, but comfortable. It has free wifi and a 24h reception. Good starting point to start your venture into Peru.
