3b is clean and comfortable, the staff was very helpful and attentive. We would defiantly stay here again. The staff actually took the time to haggle for cab fare when they hailed or called one for us. Thank you 3b for your service

What a great place. Rightly deserves this first place. After 3,5 weeks of travelling through Bolivia and Peru this is where we end our holidays and it is great! First i was not so sure about going to Lima, but by staying here i wish we could stay longer. The rooms look just as good or even better than rooms in a high class, top end hotel, breakfast is a real treat, but most importantly is the staff. It is the friendliest staff i have come across. They took a lot of time explaining the city to us, and giving us advice on what to see. They made us feel welcome and at home.

Stayed here for two nights. Great price, good breakfast which is freshly cooked to order, friendly staff all in a good location! They provided ear plugs in each room but we had no problems and I am a relatively light sleeper.

Having read the reviews of other travellers, my son and I stayed here for two nights at the end of June before joining our tour and we were not disappointed. It is modern and clean, the beds were comfy and there was ample storage space. The shower was hot and toiletries were provided and we didn't hear any noise from other guests or from outside.

There is a choice of breakfast which is made to order and the orange juice and eggs were the best I tasted during my entire stay in Peru. Also the coffee was nice and it was a bonus to be able to help yourself to tea or coffee whenever you wanted to. We arranged to be met at the airport and our driver was waiting in arrivals. As other reviewers have said, the staff are friendly and helpful and they were happy to let us leave our bags in the office on our last day so that we could spend some time looking round Barranco. We followed the recommendation of another reviewer and before we left the UK printed 'A walk through Barranco' by Rodney Dodig which is easy to find on the internet. It gave us an insight into parts of Barranco we might easily have missed if we had not followed his guide and both in the day and at night we felt completely safe walking round.

It's cheap and easy to get a bus, or a taxi from 3B to both central Lima and Miraflores. If you have the time there is plenty to keep you occupied in central Lima for a couple of days and it's worth visiting the Magic Fountains which look stunning when it's dark. Plus at only 4 soles it's a bargain. If you love craft stalls Miraflores has lots and if you like cats, don't miss Park Kennedy - it's full of them and may be one of the few times whilst in Peru you see any - unlike dogs. I'm sure if you want somewhere to stay that is good value, clean, in a safe location, with knowledgeable friendly staff and where you can easily reach the tourist attractions by bus or taxi, you are unlikely to find anywhere better. The reputation they have built up on trip advisor is well deserved.

This place exceeded our expectations greatly. We only stayed in Lima as a stopover on the way to Peru, and we're not that interested in staying long. The truth is, this place and the surrounding neighbourhood made it a highlight. The staff are wonderful, the rooms are clean and quiet, they can arrange a transfer at a reasonable cost, wifi is included and there are kitchen facilities. Even when we had to leave early and would miss breakfast, they packed us a lunch to take on the flight! We really loved it here and have definitely made plans to return again someday :-)

Room Tip: Stay in this area - its the much nicer part of Lima

We selected 3B based on the reviews we read on Trip Advisor and we pleased to find all the positives mentioned by others. We stayed here 3 nights at the beginning our our trip and 1 night at the end. When we returned at the end our our 3 weeks in Peru, it felt like coming home again. Agree with all comments about central location, proximity to restaurants, cleanlienss, comfort etc and just cannot say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff. Really enjoyed watching the cook every morning - she clearly loves her job and is the like a captain on the bridge of a ship!
Took the suggestion of a previous reviewer and had 3B arrange for our transportation to/from the airport which was definitely the way to go. Just can't say enough good things about 3B

Room Tip: We had room 106 and had no issues.

This is a great boutique hotel in a central location. There are shops and restaurants directly across from the hotel, and the Barranco central plaza is an easy 15 -20 minutes walk away. The front desk was very helpful and very knowledgeable with what was around and how to get to it.
In short, we have zero complaints, only nice things to say about this hotel, and will definitely stay there again on our next trip.
