Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. They offered free transfer from the bus station. For some reason I missed it, but they refunded what I paid to the taxi driver. Very attentive service, clean, central, breakfast included and good price. A convenient base to explore the surrounding archeological sites, as the exceptional Museo de las Tumbas Reales de Sipán....

Quite a quirky setup - very brightly decorated rooms. However, the hotel is spotless. The showers are hot. The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful. What more can one ask for! As mentioned by others, its location is good. Virtually in the centre of a bustling Chiclayo.

Victor, Roeli, Jhon, and Yocelyn gave excellent advice on finding places in Chiclayo and getting to the archeological sites outside the city. Always smiling, nothing was too much to ask of them. Clean hostal. I didn't give this hostal a 5 rating bec. it is a bit far from the Plaza and the hostal is noisy. The layout of the... More

Such friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. The fluent English spoken was a nice break from my stuttering Spanish. Wifi was fast, showers were hot and powerful, rooms were clean, comfortable and secure. The breakfast was decent and came with fresh juice which was very nice. For the price, I would definitely recommend it. You... More

This is a solid little hotel, well-situated in Chiclayo. The rooms were basic and brightly-coloured, on the smaller-side but with a great hot shower. The included breakfast is minimal but better than nothing. What really stood out for us was the extremely friendly and helpful front desk staff – chatty and eager to answer any questions we had, even if... More

Hotel Embajador is conveniently located: 5 mins walk from the sprawling market that sells everything and 10 mins walk from the Plaza de Armas. It has to be said: the decor is a rather frightening throw back to '70s - all orange & lime green, but cheerful. The cafe is clean and the breakfasts are pleasant if basic. The staff... More

I think the thing I liked most about this place was the staff. They were so friendly and helpful, albeit not always 5* service but then this isn't a 5* venue and their occasional quirkiness added to the experience! The room was more than adequate with lots of hot water. There was also a lovely little cafe downstairs that was... More
