“Dirty and not a nice hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2008

I booked a double room, but they gave me a single room. After 4 days i got the double room. The rooms are dirty, my stay was for 2 weeks and i guess i got hot water in the shower just a couple of days (in the morning). 2 small pcs of bread for breakfast, thats all. The coffee was good tho....
There are so many nice hotels in lima, so next time (2009) we are gonna choose another hotel.

Dear Friends

Our point of view about Doffejr`s member comment
Inversiones Turísticas Niconsta owns Hotel Continental property since May of 2007, in November of 2008 after months of complete remodeling work the hotel Continental Lima passed the qualification process and obtains the certification of Peruvian Authority.
It’s a fact that services provided on 2006 to member Doffejr during his stayed at the Hotel was unpleasant experience; please accept our sincere apologies
We request to withdraw the text and 02 photos of the comment. This comment notes the situation of the hotel in 2006. We are a new company committed to innovate and improve our services with high quality standards.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2007

I arrived in Lima at midnight after more than 30hours of travel. Also my transfer to this hotel never showed, causing me a lot of stress to bundle on top of being alone in a strange country where I didn't speak the language. Therefore my attitude to this hotel might be a bit biased.

Construction work was being carried out in the surrounding streets of the hotel which meant the taxi driver had to walk me a block or so. Upon arriving at the hotel and knocking on the door for a minute a man appeared and let me in.
I was checked in simply by gestures, such as handing me a form.

Upon reaching my room I was unimpressed. The facilities were adequate, but for the price I paid they were a let down. The bed was hard, the bathroom old.

The next morning I went down to reception to request they call the transfers company to ensure my transfer would be there that day. I managed to find an English speaking employee which was great.
I went and enjoyed a quick but enjoyable breakfast before going back to reception.
I was advised that the transfer would arrive. However, I was charged for the call made (only 20centados, but still, I did not expect to be charged for this).

In summary, it's a relatively okay hotel, but I did not enjoy it. However as mentioned, that could of been partly due to my situation.
