“Great people but the place is a bit old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

I love the service and attitude of the people, they really try for you to have a good time there. However, the house is quite old, so if you are looking for a modern place to stay, this is not the place.

However, if what you need is good space and to accommodate many people in one room, Peru Star is perfect. Each room is huge, with kitchen and a living room.

Peru Star is a very decent hotel in San Isidro. It has a lovely interior courtyard with many flowers and a small pool. The rooms are comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. We stayed there at the beginning of our trip and returned at the end. We requested a room with a view of the courtyard for our return, and Diego, the concierge put us in a lovely suite at no up charge in price. The one downside is that the hotel is not within walking distance of any more than so-so restaurants. The hotel's own restaurant is fine for breakfast but not especially good for anything more. also, taxi drivers in other areas of the city don't know the small street the hotel is on, so take one of the little map cards the hotel offers with you when you go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Request view of courtyard

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. It was a great and relaxing place to stay in Lima. It's located in a quiet residential area, which felt very safe and secure. The hotel staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Overall a very good experience.

My family of 4 (hubby and myself, kids ages 9+11) just enjoyed a great stay at Peru Star. We pre-arranged airport transfer through the hotel, and it was nice being greeted at the airport and shuttled to the hotel without having to negotiate a cab ride. We were greeted graciously at reception and offered early check-in for 1/2 day price which was well worth it to directly check-in at 8:30 am and enjoy a nice breakfast after an overnight flight.
They had kindly upgraded us from our pre-booked double apartment to a "superior double apartment", and it was lovely and spacious. Room for the kids with 2 twins, room for the adults with a queen. 2 full and 1 half bath and a nice family room. Enjoyed an afternoon swim at the pool after a long morning of sightseeing.
The location was in a safe, pleasant neighborhood, and we were able to walk to the new location of Astrid y Gaston, Casa Moreyra for a notable lunch. Ended up taking dinner back in the room when we were exhausted that night- on-site restaurant did a great lomo saltado.
The included breakfast was good quality and plentiful.
Overall, we were pleased with the friendliness of the staff, spaciousness of accommodations, and value for Lima. Would definitely go back if we were in Lima.
Couldn't get the in-room safe to work, but didn't bother to ask the front desk, just kept our passports with us.

Room was relatively clean, but had no A/C and poor air circulation, One fire alarm sensors down stairs had a low battery and it was chirping 24hours a day for the 3 days of my stay, they really trick you with the exchange rate at the time of paying, I am glad I had local currency on me and paid them in their own currency, I would not stay there again

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinions on Trip Advisor. We are sorry that you felt that way about our exchange rate. For your information, and for that of all of our future guests, our exchange rate changes every day and is exactly the same as that given by the Central Bank of Reserve, and the one used for that day at all exchange centers in the country. In other words, we use the official exchange rate every day. We do not profit from the exchange rate, and only provide this service for the sole benefit and convenience of our guests. Furthermore, we always encourage our guests to exchange their currency in exchange centers, the closest one located just two block from the hotel.

I would encourage our future guests to look past this review, as it is reflecting inaccurate information, and I would encourage you to look at our 350+ reviews that offer an accurate portrayal of an experience at Peru Star. As always, we are happy to answer any questions prior to your arrival, and to offer you the best accommodation in Lima, with our outstanding service making you feel part of the family, in your home away from home. Our family's dedication to making our guests have the best stay possible, will ensure that you have a wonderful experience in Lima while staying with us. We look forward to it!

Best,
The Peru Star Team

I had a wonderful stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious with a nice kitchen and it opened onto a beautiful courtyard with the garden and a pool. I felt very welcome and comfortable. And was especially happy that my little puppy was welcome too. I ate in the restaurant several times and was very pleased with the selection and quality. Because the rooms are not air conditioned, people leave windows and often doors open. I happened to be next to a family with two young boys who cried and yelled a lot so that was disturbing but I'm not sure what could be done about it. Maybe just a good idea to see who else is near you before settling into your room.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We are truly happy that we were able to offer you a comfortable, homey and affordable accommodation during your stay in Lima. We have taken serious note of your recommendation, and have started the preparation of our units to have their own AC. Although temperature in Lima tended to be mild all year through (never too hot nor too cold), with global warming we have been experiencing hotter summers than ever before. Thank you for your suggestion, and we hope that next time you visit us in Lima you will enjoy your room with its new AC.

All the best,
The Peru Star Team
