We stayed here for 2 nites at the beginning of our 3 week trip in Peru. This is a budget hotel with a great location in central Lima. Our room & bathroom were spotless and well appointed. The staff was very helpful, friendly and efficient. They arranged airport transportation to and from the hotel and arranged a Lima bus tour.Decent... More

My daughter and I spent a couple of nights here at the end of her Peru trip, and I returned here after nearly a week traveling through Northern Coastal Peru. So between us we know three of the back-side rooms on 6th Floor (610, 611, and 612). For the record, only one of these (612) has a handle on the... More

The Continental is conveniently located and moderately priced. As other reviewers have noted, the rooms are very small--mine was adequate for one person. The vent in my bathroom seemed to connect directly to the adjoining room's bathroom, which meant I could hear (and sometimes I think smell) what was happening there. The breakfast included real coffee (not the best, but... More

This is a budget hotel, so it's just the basics as far as the facilities go. The wifi is included, though, which is even better than some of the business hotels. But the service here is great - mainly Michel, who can suggest some excursions and can tell you how to get around the city.

We stayed at Hotel Continental for two nights and the staff was very helpful in printing out our boarding passes, giving us free detailed maps, suggesting available options nearby (free and for purchase), and providing taxi service. The bed was large and solid. The windows did a good job at blocking the noise from the street once closed. The breakfast... More

We are still here right now, and had the best sleep we've had in 3 weeks in South America! The beds are so comfortable, and besides the noises in the street below, it's a quiet hotel. The breakfast is adequate and the staff are extremely helpful. It's a short walk to the main square and the food is fantastic. The... More

My husband and I had an overnight layover in Lima and chose to stay at Hotel Continental for its location near the Plaza de Armas area. The hotel was very helpful in arranging us an airport pickup taxi and a taxi back to the airport the next morning. They were also great about giving us directions to the main square... More

We wanted to stay for just one night because it was close to the airport and we had an early flight to catch the next day. Our room was so bad, it was so cramped and dingy and the whole place was stinking. The towels were wet and we wanted to get out of the place first thing But I... More

We chose this hotel only because we had just one night in Lima and wanted to maximise our time in the historical centre. E mails were promptly answered and full payment was made on check-out. We arranged transport through the hotel and had no problems in getting to and from airport. The hotel itself is very basic and although apparently... More
