“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed here for a few nights during a stopover in Lima based on its tripadisor ranking.  Unfortunately the hotel was a bit disappointing for us.  Here are the issues with this place: (1) the rooms are rather small and dont open to the outside, only to a small area enclosed by walls to let just a bit of light in (2) very thin walls and doors open to the central part of the house so it's very noisy to try and sleep (they do give you earplugs in recognition of this (3) for some reason, at least in the room we were in, there was no hot water available in the bathroom sink (only hot water in the shower - sink settings are simply cold or off) (4) painfully slow "high speed" Internet.  On the plus side, the people were friendly, the hotel was clean, and we did enjoy walking around the Barranco neighborhood which has lots of great restaurants and bars.  If we find ourselves in Lima again, we will probably stay in the same part of town, but likely choose a different hotel.

I stayed at 3B a total of four nights (three in the first part and one on the second stay).
I enjoy the chic and modernist look of the hotel.
The rooms were clean with enough room to relax. The bathroom was clean and very modern. I thought that the bowl sinks would not work well, but I end up loving it.
The lobby has some comfy chairs and there's a great small courtyard.
The breakfast was good, esp the fresh made oj. There is a small 24 hour tea/coffee station and water bottle.
There are small dining options near, a short walk to small parks that line the cliffs overlooking the ocean and within a ten minute walk, more eateries, the plaza and Starbucks.
Everyone working at the 3B were helpful and no question wrong.
Since the fall was warmer than normal, fans were in the rooms.
The only fault is you are a distance from the airport so expect anywhere from 40 minutes to over a hour from the airport and 3B.
I would suggest 3B to anyone wanting to stay somewhere that you are not a face in the crowd and enjoy being among the locals.

Room Tip: The rooms toward the back will have less noise than the front, you will still hear traffic, but less...

This bed and breakfast in the Barranco area of Lima fit our needs perfectly. We stayed for one night upon arrival in Lima and as well on our last night in Peru.
The guest rooms were clean, the bathrooms were clean, the breakfast included made to order eggs, which we enjoyed on our last morning there. On our first morning we had a early flight so they offered to make us a breakfast sandwich to take with us, a very much appreciated extra!

The neighborhood seems good, with a wine bar across the street and two nearby restaurants, or a person can easily walk to the tourist area for a more touristy experience.

It is about 45 minutes from the airport so if you are flying in and out it may not be convenient. Also be sure to ask for an upstairs room, we were on the second floor but the first floor rooms are very near the lobby and the breakfast area so I imagine they get a bit of noise.

Room Tip: avoid the first floor. No A/C that I know of here.

Chic and Arty hotel, as advertised, has very comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms, an excellent staff, all in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood of Lima. Plenty of good restaurants and cafes close by and it is a short walk to the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Great views.

Breakfast starts early and goes on till 11 am so you can sleep in and still get fed. You have a choice of made-to-order eggs or a vegetable sandwich or a bowl of fresh fruit with yogurt. Fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee and tea. The coffee is available in the lobby 24 hours.

Free WiFi is available in the rooms. The hotel can arrange for an airport pick-up for a fee of $23. Barranco is far from the airport so the taxi charge is fair.

A big thank you to the front desk staff for accommodating all our requests. It was a memorable stay.

Room Tip: Room 204 if you like 'Birds'.

We loved our stay at 3B Barranco! We stayed four nights and would go back again any time! The breakfasts are wonderful, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful and it was spotlessly clean. There is a large grocery store a 5-block walk away and there are numerous cafes and restaurants in the area. It felt very safe to walk around the neighborhood. We loved the artistic feel of the place and the nice touches everywhere. They get our enthusiastic thumbs up for making us feel at home.

We stayed here on our last night of our Peru trip. I wish we would have had more time here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean. The building had lots of cool art all around. We were able to walk around Barranco from here without a problem. Our flight was out very early the next morning. Not only did they arrange the taxi for us but they also had breakfast packed for us to take to the airport. Great service and a cool place to stay.

Awesome location, in the heart of Barranco, very quiet while close to everything, and only a few blocks from ocean - make it a great choice for a few days stay in Lima.

The Hotel is well maintained, very organized, clean and let me always feel home away from home. Simple and good breakfast, helpful staff, and reasonable price.

Room is a little bit small, but didn't bother me. Also a little far from airport, which is a downside for staying only 1 night in Lima.

Tips:
1. Its proximity to ocean as well as to Miraflores make jogging a great choice to start your day. I jogged about 45 minutes along the ocean front and made all the way to the center of Miraflores, and 4-5 soles to easily get a taxi back to hotel.

2. for adventurous traveler, from airport (actually right outside of it), you may take Bus "S", and get off anywhere in Miraflores - walk around, have some food, and then from Miraflores, a 5 minutes taxi to the hotel. (5-10 Soles).
