Hostal Turistico Eiffel
Ranked #231 of 378 Specialty Lodging in Lima
Reviewed May 6, 2011

I stayed for 4 nights because it was cheap (20$ with my own bathroom)and in a great location. The water was hot and there was hardly anyone else staying there. If you are expecting a smiling and helpful face at reception, however, look elsewhere. The older man and woman go out of their way to be sour and sullen. One evening the man heard my buzz to be let in the entrance gate, looked at me through the door, and deliberately ignored me until I buzzed again. Really strange and hostile behavior. Other than that, a pretty good bargain for miraflores.

the location of this hostal, is just amazing, one block from the JW Marriot Lima, and the Larcomar center (touristic), the instalations are ok, for the price I don`t expect much. but it just would be nice to have better things like pillows or a fan in the room. nevertheless, for the good price and location I recomend the hostal. just be aware and demant a good service from the owners and workers

I have written dozens of reviews on Trip Advisor, and almost never given a one star rating to something, but this place really deserves it. The hotel looks OK from the outside, but the rooms are just pathetic. The floors are covered in worn industrial carpeting. The walls haven't been painted in a very long time. The bathroom tile has had a very hard life and I wonder how it could have so many cracks. The smell of sewer gas seemed to be coming from the sink drain, and found its way into the room even with the bathroom door closed. The room has a 12 inch color TV with international cable channels. There's no phone in the room, so to ask a question, you have to go back downstairs (up to 4 flights with no elevator). The beds were about as firm as I've ever encountered. The sheets are lemon yellow and 100 percent polyester. I was sweating all night because my skin couldn't breathe while laying in the bed. The pillows were thick and hard. There's not even a fan in the room to help cool off; don't even ask about air conditioning. I only slept about 4 hours at most.

The staff seemed indifferent. I can't believe that they charge $30 for a single room in this place. I stayed in Lima for a week, but checked out after the first night and went hotel shopping the next morning. They do have free luggage storage, so that made it much easier.

The only positive thing I could say about this place is that there was plenty of hot water when I showered.

I walked past a couple of other rooms while I was leaving to see if they were similar to mine, and they were. I think they took the photos for the web site when the hotel was brand new. The rooms don't look like that now.

The only thing that I can figure is that this place must be listed in one of those travel books meant for budget travelers. Why else would it be filled with young Americans and Europeans? There are plenty of budget hotels in Lima that are nicer than this one. A few possibilities would be Farolito on 2 de Mayo, Tambo on Av. La Paz, Tinkus on Av. La Paz. For the same price, and possibly less, you would get an attractive room in the same neighborhood. I can't think of any circumstance where I would stay here again.
