My other review on trip advisor is of this same hotel one year ago for the same reason. Visiting family in the lima area for the holidays. It's a great pick. Clean comfortable rooms. Good breakfast, affordable rate. It was an easy choice to stay here again.

My bride, our daughter, and sister were in Lima recently for a family event. We booked two rooms, a double shared by our daughter and her aunt, and a king for my spousal unit and myself.

Smoking room was disgusting. Paint yellowed by nicotine and the room smelled TERRIBLE. The light in the bathroom was flickering constantly, something a maid could easily see and report to maintenance to get fixed. Why it wasn't, I have no idea. The breakfast was OK. Wet eggs, and no coffee. We waited for 10 minutes before someone else finally said... More

Thank you for staying with us. I’m sorry to hear that your stay was less than perfect. Many hotels have eliminated smoking rooms over the past years, one reason being the challenge to keep these rooms in good condition. We are one of the last hotels in the area to still offer smoking rooms. Just because it is a smoking... More
