Admittedly, we are not hostel people. I've only ever stayed in one before so don't have much to compare this to. We decided to book this place because our flight arrival time and trip itinerary would have us in the hotel for less than 8 hours and we really wanted to explore the historic city center of Lima before moving...

Very nice hostel close to the historic center of Lima, with also a good price if you dont think about to stay close to the beach like everybody else does this is a nice hostel for stay in Lima, it look like a museum with many portraits, statues, arcteture and many others things. The owner is such a nice person,... More

I love Hotel España. But construction 12 hours a day has cut my stay short this February 2015. Before booking best ask if renovation of roof top suites continues... DAMN Noisy! Even on Saturday! Once completed Hotel España will return to it's idyllic self... and I'll return.

3 of us stayed in a triple room for a quick 2 night stay in Lima before we went off to the Sacred Valley. We chose Hotel Espana mainly for its location near the historic center of Lima but also because it was reasonably priced and looked to have some interesting local character. Our flights got in very late and... More

If you want a semi decent place to sleep this isn't it. This place felt dirty, the sheets were torn and patched back together, the ground was dirty and the entire night I felt like I was in a horror house, but it was cheap so okay. Interesting décor, I think I saw maybe 8 statues of David about the... More

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
