Interesting converted mansion to hostel/hotel. Central location to Lima with a lovely rooftop garden. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace, accompanied by several large parrots, a peacock, and many roaming tortoises. I really liked the traditional colonial architecture, tile, and windows.
Booked and paid in advance for both of my stays at this hotel. I was constantly confronted during by the receptionist during each of my stays demanding payment for my rooms. Fortunately I had kept my receipts for payment and politely presented them each time I was confronted. Despite this, I was asked for payment several other times, and would have to present my receipt accordingly. Keep any receipts for payment during your stay, though I think transaction history is logged in a separate book at the front desk if necessary.
Rooms were generally clean, though several cigarette burns could be found on the bedspreads in both of our rooms.
We stayed at Hotel España and afterwards in the Barranco neighborhood of Lima -- we found Barranco and our hostel there to be a much more comfortable accommodation and community, and we would prefer to travel into the city rather than stay in central Lima.
