“Not what i expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights before going to Cusco. Chose this place due to the comments in Tripadvisor but i have to say i was a bit dissapointed.
The pictures of this place look a lot better than the actual hotel. Looking at their website and the photos in tripadvisor i was expecting something else.
I dont think this should be considered a hotel but more like a bed and breakfast. The place is clean and service was adequate and breakfast was breakfast. Wifi was good enough to check emails.
Our room was on the top floor and was a bit on the old side. Bathroom was not that appealing and the drain in the bathroom floor had a little bit of odor coming from it.
Stairs to go up to our room were also a bit on the dangerous side. Hotel staff were nice enough to take our suitcases up and back down when we were leaving.
Biggest complaint for me was the noise. I had a very difficult time sleeping both nights with all kinds of noise entering the room.
Also hotel is located in San Isidro which is a residential area so there is not much to do close by and yo will have to take a cab to go anywhere.
I paid $70 per night per room including breakfast and internet plus $35 each way for airport transfer for 4 people and i am thinking that i am being unfair expecting anything more than what i got.
All and all i think this place is ok for the money but make sure you take ear plugs and don't have high expectations.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. One of our goals is and always has been and will be to offer affordable accommodations for guests visiting Lima. This has made us receive the "great value" award appointed repeatedly by guests who have stayed with us. We apologize for the inconvenience you had with your bathroom. We urge future guests to always let us know when there is something wrong with your unit or that you would like differently, so we can solve it for you. Another of our goals is to make guest feel as comfortable and as happy as they can be, as if they were in their own home with a peruvian family taking care of them. So we always want our guests to inform us of anything they need during their stay so we can attend to it while they are still with us.

Trip Advisor offers all visitors the possibility to see pictures taken by other guests, so we hope future visitors can benefit from today's technology to have a very accurate image of lodging options available to them. We hope you had safe travels and that you will visit Peru again.

All the best,
Marcos Lostaunau
Owner

Perfect, we arrived Lima and there was our driver waiting for us as we exited customs. He whisked us right to the Peru Star Apartments for a two night stay. Location, location, location. The Peru Star is in a very quieit neighborhood which is wonderful. A short taxi ride away you are in Miraflores.

Our room was super, the staff amazing. Could not have asked for better and they have airport service ($20..00) for pickup and drop off.

We were to have used this hotel for a day room on our last day in Peru but our flight from Iquitos (10:20 AM) was "combined" with a 3:50 PM flight so we had to board our flight home after losing the afternoon in Lima. I was able to contact Peru Star via email at the airport and they were WONDERFUL about our situation and thanked us for the notification. They canceled the room and the driver as I let them know as early as I could. My 3G was in and out at the airport in Iquitos.

Great place to stay. Highly recommend:-)

Away from all the hustle and bustle of Miraflores, this place is a gem. Great, Great service. Personable and inviting. We had the family room with 2 bedrooms, livingroom, and kitchen. I would stay here again.

It is a 20min taxi ride to Miraflores and not too far walking to Museo Larco.
Located on a small residential street walking distance to some shops and restaurants. Very close to the banks.

It's about 30 min from the airport

I have traveled to lima for both business and pleasure for >20 years now. The hotels close to the Larco Mar are great if the company is buying, but I end up staying here when I am buying. I recommend this hotel for travelers that want a quiet place to stay. The restaurant is nice, plus you can walk to others nearby. The staff is friendly and helpful.

This little hotel is a step above all others and for the price offers the best value I found in Lima. The only downside is the location compared to other hotels, but taxis are inexpensive in Lima compared to most places and the service and accommodation (and fantastic price) make up for this. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I stayed in a courtyard room and was quit happy.

We had a 28 day budget tour of Peru and Bolivia. We choose the Peru star apartments to start our trip although it was above our normal budget for a hotel. After about 30 hours of flights and waiting at airports for connecting flights we wanted a good hotel close to the airport to freshen up for a few days.
The Peru star is as good as the rest of the traverlers reviews say at a reasonable price. The only complaint l would have is that they charged us US$34 for a one way hotel pick up compared to a average taxi price of less than US$10
