The Hotel is located in a safe area and the staff is friendly. Breakfast is good as well. But the rooms are old-fashioned in my eyes and you always have the smell of mothballs in your nose... If you have bad luck, then you end up in the 2nd floor with no view out of the window and without a... More

The hotel is located in front of Parque el Olivar which is beautiful. It also has very good restaurants walking distance, like Tanta and Astrid & Gaston. It looks old but everything looks clean and pretty. I would definitely stay here again.

On my first trip to Lima this hotel was booked based purely on location but after staying happily delivered on a number of other levels. Not only located near to my office but a short (depending on time of day) 20 minute taxi drive (easily arranged through the Hotel) landed you to either the coast or old centre. With a... More

The hotel is clean and well-run (although we did have staff ring our door bell at 3:15 am to ask if we were checking out in a badly-timed communication error). Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. We were on the 6th floor and found it noisy during setup for the meeting rooms above. Once we moved to a lower floor... More
