“Bad internet connection”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

The place is nice. They have a nice breakfast, but the room was a bit small (which I don't really mind). Worse the bed was a bit short and the wi-fi worked very bad. It was very slow and kept disconnecting. There was a bit noise from the big road near by. It's not too bad, but the place is not completely quiet.

I suppose, the place is fine, if you don't need internet.

I arrived not only to check in but with a large problem! I had a mirror which I had intended to transfer to the UK. Sadly, LAN had decided to play shuffle board with my mirror and the packaging was badly damaged. The team at B &B immediately set about offering packaging solutions and telephoning the airlines to check for transport options. Not only were they friendly efficient, but I got the impression could genuinely see how distressed I was and set about solving my problem for me, and allowing me time to enjoy Barranco. They made me feel like I was a returning family member.

I can not recommend this hotel highly enough, the team spoke great English and were friendly, helpful and laid back. I even got my room key and the opportunity to shower, before being asked for a credit card! The hotel was clean, modern, well designed and enjoys a good location.

My only regret was that I had an early flight, and wasn't able to enjoy the hotel more.

Much love guys! You were awesome!

We loved this hotel. It's simple and modern. Our room was spotless. The staff was very friendly, offering lots of recommendations on food to try and places to go. The location is good - it's maybe a couple of blocks too far north, but there are a ton of reaturants and bars within walking distance. The cliff-top parks along the ocean are only 2 blocks away. Barranco was our favorite neighborhood in Lima. This place was leaps and bounds better than the hotel we stayed at in Miraflores.

Loved the little extra touches - chocolates on the pillow, fresh-cooked breakfast, filtered water in the lobby, and different wall art in each room. The rooms face small interior courtyards/ window boxes, which helps cut down on street noise. There's a very good cafe/restuarant (Sofa Cafe) on the same block. I highly recommend this place, and would definitely stay here again if visiting Lima in the future.

Foggy Lima is not the most attractive of capital cities in my opinion, seemingly stretching forever along it's dry and dusty coastline, on arrival ones enthusiasm takes a dive. 3B Barranco manages to redeem this grotty image though. Value for money, design, finesse, the friendliest and most helpful of staff ( perfect English) and a funky neighborhood with great bars and restaurants, it certainly turned Lima into an enjoyable stopover for me. With it's spick and span small but well appointed rooms, it's big bright and beautiful lounge and breakfast areas, delicious individually prepared breakfast and all day/ night coffee station the team at Barrancas has obviously given a lot of thought and loving care into providing what todays discerning budget minded tourist requires and expects. Well done, you turned Lima from what I thought was going to be a bit of a nightmare into a dream stay. I was so glad to be able to come back again after three weeks of touring Peru. One of the best little hotels I found anywhere.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor get a bit of noise from the breakfast area outside ( with ear plugs I didn...

Loved my stay here. The staff are the friendliest & most accommodating I've come across since my stay in Peru. They will help you out with everything & anything - from booking airport transfers to recommending places to eat, shop, etc. Service with a smile & catered toward individuals' traveling needs. The breakfast is fantastic, and the 24/7 tea/coffee station is a great idea. The location is ideal and conveniently situated nearby good restaurants & cafés (try Sofa Café), as well as being a short walk away from the park near the cliff side, where you get a picturesque view of the beach. Highly recommended! Would definitely stay here again. Thanks 3B for making my stay in Lima so enjoyable!

Not only is Barranco the district to stay in, 3B is accommodation of choice. The staff is extremely friendly, willing to help you in every way. The rooms are nicely appointed, very comfortable, and the right price. Breakfast was excellent. A very comfortable place. It is in a nice quite neighborhood and you can walk to anyplace you want. When in Lima I wouldn't stay anyplace else.;l

This place is great - generous sized rooms, great atmosphere, delicious breakfast but above all, the best service we had in Peru! They helped us get around and gave us ideas on where to visit. Would definitely stay here again.
