The hotel is cute at first glimpse. The first room we were given had no windows and smelled like fresh paint strongly. The second room had an opening to the central staircase but not an actual window. The staff get going early and talk fairly loudly in the common areas so you're guaranteed an early wake up. The tourist office... More

this hotel is very original, it is like a museum ! it's therefore very nice to walk around, the rooms are spacious (but very old) and it's cheap (approx 10€). They have some animals on the roof and the breakfast is good (but not included).

This is a super unique hotel steps away from Plaza Mayor and Saint Francis Monastery. Its really unique, with lots of great antiques, sculptures, art, and even some ancient bones (spooky!) in a display case in the lobby. Its kind of like staying in a museum. Rooms are a fair size, and uniquely decorated. Its very clean, and there is... More

Hotel Espana is well located directly in the centre of Lima. It is a beautiful colonial building with interesting decor and nice patios, also featuring a tortoise and two peacocks. Our room was small but cosy. Just expect some delays with the taxi transfer to and from the airport.

When I arrived to Lima I wanted to be centrally located to the heart of town nearby museums, churches and other specific locations I was documenting. It's a very interesting Hotel that is reasonable priced and welcoming. As I had a private room, the private shower and bathroom was better than I expected and had a small TV on the... More

I booked here simply because it is close (5-10 walk) to the station for the tourist train to Huancayo. However, it is also very convenient for the historic centre of Lima. The hotel has WiFi but I found it hit and miss for no obvious reason. My room was small, verging on tiny but was OK for 1. Given it... More

Converted mansion in the heart of the historical center. The building itself was beautiful, filled with courtyards, art and even a few roaming peacocks and tortoises. The rooms left a little to be desired - ours was fairly musty and it got quite cool during the night. Could use and update. Decent breakfast at reasonable prices (not included with the... More
