The hostel itself is okay, the location is good. However, it's the most unpleasant part of my two weeks trip in Peru. I stayed at the mixed dorm for two days. On the second day morning, I put my phone on the bed of my room charging it and went to bath room for 2 minutes, when I came back,... More

Hotel España was just okay for us. This was our very first place to stay in Peru, out of many, many hotels, hostels and B&Bs. This one was tough to rate. If you're rating it as a hotel, then definitely only 1 star. If you're rating it as a hostel, then 3 stars. I averaged it and gave it 2... More

Very good location, really close to the mayor sights. Literally next to the San Francisco cathedral. Good size rooms with colonial paintings (Virgen Mary looking at you from above), decent bathroom with shower. Everything was quite clean. Nice roof terrace with parrots and peacocks walking/flying around. Hotel looks beautiful on the in- and outside. No Wifi signal inside the rooms... More

We are not picky people (by far-we often stay at hostels!!) and a large group of us had booked to stay here for a week! It was terrible! One lady at the front desk would just ignore you for a few minutes every time you needed something and another one actually stole an item from me, The rooms on the... More

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
