I have been staying at Gemina for over a decade. It is located in the very interesting, bohemian district of Barranco. This area of Lima is very safe with many fine restaurants, shops, and now one of Lima's finest craft brewery's. The staff are always helpful, and all front desk personnel are fluent in English. The rooms are always spotlessly... More

The staff here went above and beyond their role. Not only were they friendly informative and accommodating to me but to all of my friends also. I was expecting a package to be delivered to the hotel that never arrived and the staff here helped me to communicate to the post office as I had no Spanish and they checked... More

The staff here were brilliant! so polite and helpful, and in my experience they speak English very well. This was particularly useful to me as I needed assistance with my bags and taxis, as I was on crutches at this time. The hotel has a really good location in the bohemian district of Barranco. Near to restaurants, coffee shops and... More

Location of this hotel is perfect: close to everything you want to see in Barranco. It is 5 min walk to the main plaza, supermarket, bars with excellent pisco sour etc. unfortunately, our window was facing a gym that opens its door early in the morning and you can hear every song and every crunch/squad. Breakfast was just coffee, papaya... More

I had an enjoyable stay here for 2 nights in December 2014. The location is great. There are banks and a great supermarket close by. The coast is a short walk away too.The staff are very friendly and helpful. The security of the hotel is good (they lock the gate late at night). Breakfast is basic.

A very comfortable with all its ammenities. Water was always hot. Breakfast was freshly made with fruit juice. In the most center of Barranco. Very professional and accomodating staff. I highly recommend it. Great spaces, sort of a museum with all the artifacts and antiques you can imagine, radios, phones, sewing machines, which added a plus to Hostal Gemina. The... More

We stayed here as part of a Gadventures tour and while the room itself was decent, there was a hot shower and a comfy enough bed, it feels like there was no windows in this place it was so loud. It backs on to a courtyard with a number of other businesses and a number of our group commented on... More
