When we booked our tours and hotels for the Peru portion of our 50th Anniversary trip, we were assured by our travel agency, Best Peru Tours, that all of our hotels would be “4*”. Unfortunately our very first night on May 6 at the Allpa Hotel in the Miraflores area of Lima did not come even close to meeting this level. Grim is the only way to describe this room. It was described as “Habitacion Matrimonial Standard” in our tour description. I don’t know what that is supposed to mean, but it does not translate to even a “3* much less a “4*”by any stretch of the imagination. The room was small, dark and sparsely furnished with a window that looked out into an air shaft. It was also noisy, but from within the hotel and not from external traffic noises. And the bed felt like it was the box spring only with no mattress on top of it. A big disappointment!
With the intervention of our tour company (and despite the reluctance of the hotel management) we were in fact given a much nicer suite when we returned to the hotel on May 11th for our last night in Lima. While the room didn’t use space well, it was large and comfortable with lots of external windows and light. There was a large bedroom area with a comfortable bed, a large but sparsely furnished and decorated living room area and a nice bathroom. It was certainly a better ending to our trip than our arrival at the Allpa Hotel on May 6th. And despite the problems that we had with the accommodations, the hotel staff was most helpful during our stay. If you are being offered the Allpa as your hotel, I would certainly recommend that you see the room that you are being assigned before moving in. They can’t be all as disappointing as the first one that we ended up in – I hope.
