We're just back from a one night stay at this hotel and I very much advise to stay away from it. First of all it's Lonely Planet recommended as central location but it took us up to an hour to walk into Plaza del Armas from it so it's very not central. The rooms were dull, dark, grey, dirty carpets,... More

Lovely place, nice breakfast, staff could be nicer. Clean, secure and quite, even with a school in the backyard ;) For a short term stay its nice. I was alone and there's not so many things to do nearby.

I chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and didn't regret. It is a really nice hotel in downtown Lima, but in a very quiet street. The furniture is kind of old, but very clean and everything worked. Like the other reviews, the weak point is the "breakfast"; basically bread, butter, jelly, coffee and juice. But the employees are very... More

We arrived in Lima for a 2.5 week trip, and since we hadn't heard back from the hotel regarding transportation, assumed (unlike other reviews) that it wasn't included. We arrived at the hotel after 20 hr. of flying and just wanted water. We asked at the desk, tipped for the water, only to find out at check out (unlike every... More

A comfortable, quiet and clean hotel within walking distance (20-30 minutes) of the historic sites. Hotel staff was kind and very helpful. Hotel is on a quiet cul-de-sac. Some noise in distance, but it did not bother us. We were mainly interested in seeing the Plaza de Armas area and being in a safe, downtown environment. We took taxis to... More

Pros - location, value, service, breakfast, security, endless hot water. Cons - can be noisy, needs new rugs, beds just OK, not many restaurant options without a taxi. Get a room in the old building if noise bothers you. The old part faces a quiet area. The new wing which is modern and not as interesting faces a school and... More

We found the Clifford through Trip Advisor and were very please with our choice. There were only two problems, one of which is addressed in the "choose a good room" section below. The other is that the Clifford, a beautiful old mansion to which a modern wing has been added at the back, is located on a circle that taxi... More

Stayed two nights. Picked for access to Magic Water Park, Centro Historico (30 minute walk to Plaza de Armes) and quick bus availability to Milaflores. The hotel offers free taxi one way to/from the airport. Several emails with the hotel advised they would pick us up at the airport on arrival. Didn't happen but they did provide the return trip....

With Lima's manic traffic it was such a relief to pull into the quiet of the circular drive around a park, with no through traffic and the peaceful green outlook. The hotel looks like a family home and the staff are as friendly and helpful as though you were family - welcomed us cheerfully at 1 am. The rooms in... More
