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

A 5 min. walk from the main square in Chiclayo, this hotel is very well located. They paid for the taxi that picked me up at the busstation at 4 am, and had a room ready for me. Where also very helpful in trying to arrange (in the end this was not possible) an organised tour to Tucumbe and Pomac.... 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

My wife and I spent one night at the Ramada for $110 and our second night at the Hotel Embajador. The Ramada had crappy internet and warm not hot water while the Embajador had excellent fast internet and gobs of hot water. The staff went out of their way to cater to our every need. Thank you Jocelyn and Andres... More

First of all the staff is very strange: they talk a lot to say about nothing. Second breakfast was super basic and the juice undrinkable Third the room didn't have a window on the outside, just to the lobby which was very noisy because of the staff Fourth, we paid 110 Sol through booking.com while they display a 100 Sol...

We (family with 2 boys) stayed in a lot of nice hotels during our 3 week tour of the North coast of Peru. Of all the places, the folks of the Embajador provided by far the best service. From sending a taxi to the bus station to pick us up to helping us arrange tours, we had nothing but but... More

If you really are on a budget then this is a decent 2 star hotel. Noisy. breakfast is basic. They have a menu but lots of stuff are not available. This hotel might be better suited for people who are only staying overnight as they are passing through. To its credit - the hotel is extremely clean.

Staff are courteous and extremely helpful and ready to go the extra mile to ensure guests enjoy their stay both in the hotel and in the city of Chiclayo. Very clean and neat hotel with everything in good working order. Extremely good value for money and close to the main square, banks, shops and restaurants. One of the best value... More
