I arrived at this hotel late at night having been bounced from my reserved hotel which had overbooked itself, so I was not in the best frame of mind and didn't know what to expect. However my mood was instantly improved by the genuinely friendly and helpful welcome I received by the reception staff, who went out of their way to make me feel welcome.
The rooms are indeed a little old, but very clean and spacious with a separate sitting area between the entry and the bedroom which cuts out noise from the central atrium. The rear-facing rooms are therefore very quiet, though I suspect the front rooms could be noisy as Jose Pardo is a busy street.
Delightful rooftop breakfast area by the pool.
Good value, and mostly Peruvian and Latin-American guests which is a nice change from the "gringo ghetto" hotels like the nearby Antigua Miraflores (which is the hotel that bounced me!)
BTW previous reviewer is inaccurate when he says this hotel is 45 minutes from Miraflores. It is in fact, 5 minutes walk from Parque Kennedy which is the heartbeat of Miraflores, and 15 minutes walk from Larcomar on the clifftop.
