The hotel is very good as the other reviews describe. I would definitely recommend the 3B to everybody.

To balance the image painted by the most of reviews, I'll mention some things that weren't covered in most of the reviews.

1. Noise does transfer between the upper and/or lower rooms. You'll feel like roommates. If you're a light sleeper you'll have to keep the windows closed.

2. There is no a/c not that you'll need it most days/nights.

3. They add an additional 4% (by adjusting the exchange rate) to your bill if you pay by non-Peruvian credit card. I would prefer that they raised room rates by $5 per night rather than have exchange rate adjustments added to the bill.

4. There is no room safe not that you'll need one.

5. Despite the low price, it's not a backpacker hotel.

After traveling for 26 years, this hotel was the best value of any hotel I've stayed at on 3 continents.

This place was a little off the beaten track but not far from the action. The staff was super friendly and extremely helpfu and always went above and beyond. Rooms are modern, not huge but more than enough room and hotel is airy and bright. Very safe, great breakfast which is included and lots of hot water.

The hotel is modern and very clean. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. The Barranco is a very safe and charming neighborhood and is the perfect base to explore Lima. The hotel is only 2 blocks away from the bautiful coast and there are plenty of nice restaurants and bars. I would also reccommend it for business trips.

3B delivers; they say they are chic (very interesting design and use of space) and basic (everything they do, they do well, but they don't do everything. They do manage to keep their prices down, without making undeliverable promises). We loved the location because it's in a semi-residential area, with some terrific restaurants, interesting shops, and not a big tourist scene.

The design is really interesting; however, if you want elegance and luxury, you probably have to go to Miraflores. The staff was always helpful ... and more. Breakfast was made to order and fresh; after three days, they even added surprises to the menu now and then.

Perfect for our stay in Lima ... and we liked Lima a lot.

This place is AMAZING! The people, the rooms the location...you are immediately one of the family. The best place to stay and Barranco is the coolest spot in LIMA.
They cooked each egg dish to order for breakfast! The warmest staff I have ever encountered we hugged and kissed goodbye. If you are going to Lima run to 3B you will be so happy.

The staff at 3B are very friendly and make a point of learning & remembering your names. We stayed 3 nights (1 night, then 2 nights later in the trip).

Arranged taxi from airport thru the hotel & he was waiting for us when we arrived both times.

The staff is helpful with recommendations, maps, etc. Breakfast is eggs, fresh squeezed orange juice, toast & jam (an amazing orange jam!), coffee (good coffee) and clean water to fill your bottles. They even offered us a breakfast before heading to the airport at 5am one day. Appreciated!

The building design is open, so you can get some noise from the breakfast kitchen if you sleep in. But it's not too bad.

The location is good. It's only a couple blocks from the Miraflores neighborhood and a couple blocks to the cliffs overlooking the Pacific.

Was no problem to check out late (11:30am) on the day we were departing.

Overall, recommend this hotel.
