This is my 4th trip to Lima and the 4th time I have stayed at this hotel.
Once again, I hired the hotel's shuttle service to pick me up from the airport. Landing in Lima is a bit of a crap shoot. Some years, it has been great others, customs and baggage take forever! I was lucky with customs this year however bags took an hour! No need to worry though, the 3B driver was patiently waiting for me! I didn't get to the hotel until almost 2:00 am and it was great to see Javier's smiling face at my arrival!
This is a hotel that feels like home for me. It was great to get up in the morning and come downstairs and have Rosanna prepare my favourite fresh squeezed Peruvian OJ and a jamon y queso sandwich! I was able to have a lovely visit with Enrique (owner) and Elizabeth (manager) during the day.
All the staff at this hotel are excellent. Warm, welcoming and friendly. The hotel is in a GREAT location. Not in the center of touristville but close enough to walk. You really get the feel of Peru in Barranco vs staying right in the heart of Miraflores which is just too touristy for me. The only disappointment this trip is that I only had 2 short nights before I had to fly off to Cusco.
I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would stay anywhere else! You can stay in the Marriott in North America....not sure why you would want the same generic experience in wonderful Peru!
