“It's central, cheap and cheerful - plus the staff are friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

We stayed before and after a tour of Peru and like most of the other reviewers on here I can agree that it hits the major buttons. The hotel is centrally located within the historic district, within easy walking distance to the Plaza del Armas, a large local supermarket and the local pedestrian shopping streets. The hotel itself is not going to win any architectural awards for style etc, but the rooms are large, relatively clean and most come with a table and chairs, flatscreen TV and a couch. The front desk staff are friendly and willing to help when they can; organising a reputable cab to the airport and assisting with the printing of boarding passes etc. The hotel has free WIFI everywhere and two PC's in reception for internet use and the Koala Cafe restaurant attached to the hotel has decent cheap food anytime day or night.

As a tip: ask for a room not on street side - the view will be terrible, but you will sleep at night and not be woken up at 5am by the ever-present horn tooting that is a daily occurrence in Lima.

Room Tip: Anything that isn't on street side!

Standard big city centre hotel. Friendly staff, good size rooms and a great restaurant (Koala cafe). Great location, only 1 block from Jiron de la Union pedestrian street, and close to the Plaza de Armas and Plaza San Martin, make this a recommendable hotel if you need to stay in Lima centro.

I stayed in the hotel for 1 night in October, 2012 and it was the worst traveling experience I've ever had. The hotel smelled bad. But worst of all, I used the travel agency (Free Tourist Information) endorsed by the hotel. The woman who runs the agency, Pocha Cruz, criminally cheated and hoaxed us. One of the services we bought from her was the flight from Cuzco to Lima. She said the flight ticket would be $230. The truth is she bought the air tickets from StarPeru (a much cheaper airline than LAN) which only cost $70. (we figured out the real price later by asking our flight neighbors). She also booked a hotel in Arequipa without our consent. In order to make us stay in that hotel, she lied to us that our payment to her included the hotel. But when we arrived in the hotel, the hotel management said it was definitely not paid. I'm deeply disappointed in her dishonest service and would not recommend it to anyone else.

This is an inexpensive hotel right in the heart of the colonial area cultural tourists love. The city noises did not bother my sleep at all, and the shower was hot and the restaurant quick with the breakfasts for our small group. The room could have been cleaner and had cheap decor and furniture, but was clean enough. A good bargain price for this excellent location. The staff were helpful and efficiently helped us with baggage, taxi and directions.

Room Tip: You might look over your room before accepting it.

We spent a few days at the beginning and at the end of a longer trip trough peru. Perfect location, many sights in walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful, there is even a security person at the entrance. Rooms are not luxurious but OK and clean. Nice Breakfast. All in all good value for the money.

Hotel looks dingy and rooms are a bit dark and dingy too. Street noise can be heard and it is v loud!!! My husband and i seemed to have got the best room too. The others looked poor. Ok for short stay and if you are on a bit of a budget at hotels in lima are generally v expensive

Scruffy, noisy and prison-like. Lima has a (perhaps unfair) reputation for being unsafe and this hotel just intensifies that feeling. The location is great since there are few hotels in the old city.
