I stopped at this hotel twice during a package tour to Peru (after & before international flights)- the hotel was selected by my tour operator.
The first time I had room number 4 on the ground floor which frankly was terrible. Had it not been the case that I was wiped out after travelling 14 hours to get there, I would have complained but as it was, I could have slept on a bed of nails!
The room was dark, dingy and dpressing. The bathroom was in desperate need of modernisation. The room reminded me of what it must feel like to be in a prison cell. Fittings and fixtures were old and tired.
The room was also very, very noisy - being only a few paces away from reception.
However, on the second visit at the end of the tour, I had room 43 (about the furhest away from reception it is possible to get) and it was like being in a different hotel - much more modern room, more roomy and generally much more comfortable. No real complaints at all about this room.
The hotel itself seems quite nice - done out in old colonial style villa & the staff are friendly and helpful. It seems to be in a nice area of Lima (Miraflores) and it's easy enough (and seems safe)to walk to the main square of this district.
However, your stay will either be spoiled or enhanched by which room you get so choose carefully - not sure if they are refurbishing the rooms and I just got unlucky (as did several other members of our group) or if they really do have such a wide variation in the quality of the rooms.
I would have scored it 3 points if it wasn't for the first room we got.... avoid these 'old' rooms at al costs!
