The Macias siblings create a narrative around a personality, which they then use to guide their creative decisions. For Hotel B the design concepts sprung from the life of Flora Tristan, a socialist activist and writer, born of a French mother and an aristocratic Peruvian father. That she was the grandmother of Paul Gauguin only added to the artistic flair of the Macias’ concept. Hotel B’s interiors are a stunning blend of art, elegance and a sense of history.
My wife and I, having enjoyed a long relationship with Perú, elected to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with Flora. It was a wondrous experience. The high ceilings, carefully chosen art and intimacy of the small public areas provide an atmosphere at once contemporary yet steeped in Belle Époque tones. The hotel includes a three-story modern annex, which we did not explore.
The well-trained young staff quietly and efficiently met all or our needs. The kitchen turns out comforting Peruvian cuisine. An eclectic gathering of guests and locals keeps the small bar humming. The Pisco Sours are great, but alas, the coffee could stand a major upgrade.
Wondrous experiences don’t come cheap. In the case of Hotel B the value is there, even though burdened with a hefty luxury tax. If even only for one night, the splurge is worth it.
