Book here if you're looking for an average hotel in the center of Lima. Our room was spacious, quiet enough and the breakfast was decent (our only hotel in Peru serving tamales!). We didn't try the hotel restaurant.

We stayed in this hotel in May 2015 for one night. The hotel's only virtue is it's proximity to the Plaza and to the many restaurants. It is scruffy and distinctly unappealing. The staff is not bilingual - not their fault, of course. However, it should not be billed as such. A real disappointment.

located in the heart of lima, this old fashion hotel provides you clean and large rooms with TV. WI FI works in the common areas and friendly and helpful staff at the reception. couple blocks away from the main square. recommend

We stayed here for two nights, and although our mattress was rock hard and the pillows lumpy. it made up for this in its room size and hot shower. Breakfast was nice and consisted of cereals, warm bread rolls, eggs, and jams with plenty of orange juice, Tea and Coffee The Hostel is well located to the Colonial heart of... More

I stayed at Bonbini twice, before my trip to the south of Lima, and on way back. Should agree with all positive reviews. It is authentic, although people looking for more Western comfort, should head to Miraflores. For the downtown, it is a very sound solution. I should mention, it has computers with free internet, good airport pick-up service (cheaper... More

I negotiated a reduced rate for a 3 day stay (75 soles per night). Given that, it was fine. Nice common areas and the wifi works well there, but not in the room. Breakfast started out great with strong coffee, queso, jamon, etc. But each day they put out progressively less as more guests arrived. Room sheets are clean, bathroom... More

We stayed here in July 2013 because it was the departure point for a Dragoman overland trip. The room was relatively large, the bed was comfortable and everything seemed clean. The bathroom was basic but functional and again clean. The room had cable TV and there was supposedly WiFi through the place but it wasn't very good (welcome to South... More

Nice hostel with spacious ensuite rooms. Breakfast is just bread and coffee but there are lots of cheap places nearby. Location is good for Plaza Armas, Franciscan Monastery (Catacombs) and Chinatown. There is free WiFi throughout and cable TV.

Stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour so I can't comment on pricing. In short, Pros: 1. Clean 2. Reasonable amount of space 3. Stay in the courtyard facing rooms - they are relatively quiet 4.
