“Pleasant place tucked away from hectic Central Lima”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Our family of four spent two nights-- one as we arrived on a late flight to Lima, and another when we were heading back out, and on both occasions the Posada del Parque helped us catch our breath in the frantic planes-and-taxis moments of arrival and departure. The staff arranged airport pick-up the first night, which was helpful, and the room was adequate, but not charming. The 4 beds were packed into the little room, so we hadn't much extra space, but we were heading right back to the airport in less than 8 hours, anyway.
When we returned a couple of weeks later, the experience was completely different. We grabbed our own taxi (which was cheaper) and when we saw the Posada in the daylight, we were delighted! Our room this time-- #2 was larger, with 14' ceilings, windows, and a big, clean bathroom. The hotel is nicely decorated, and has a lovely breakfast room we left too early to get to enjoy. La Posada's staff is professional and courteous, and gave us a great lunch recommendation. Because the building is located at the end of a nice, verdant cul-de-sac, it is reasonably quiet, but it's just 30 minutes from the airport during traffic, and 10 or 15 minutes in the early hours; from the front door, it's a short walk to restaurants, embassies, and the Art Museum's plaza. A good value for Lima, and a nice way to begin and end a trip.

Room Tip: Room #2 is a nice quad room with some charm and a big bathroom.

This place is not charming or quaint. It is cold, damp, noisy and barren. Don't believe the reviews that say its friendly and offers an adequate breakfast. Breakfast is a roll and instant coffee. The staff is tired and unfriendly. For a few bucks more you'll do much better than this place. Give it a pass.

This colonial style mansion turned into a hostel was really beautiful, relaxing and centrally located. It is a great value for the price and is interestingly decorated with ceramics and artwork from the region. The breakfast is continental but that is okay because the food in Lima cafeterias is very cheap. You want to eat the breakfast there anyway because the eating area is so charming. The location is great because it is in a cul-de-sac street and you can't hear the incessant traffic noises from the avenue. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It would be nice to have a phone in the room but they let you use their phone at the front desk with a phone card. One taxi driver couldn't find the place so you should tell the taxis to let you off at the 1st street of Avenida Arequipa or the 2nd Street of the Avenida Petit Thouars. It is close to walk down the cul-de sac from there. Otherwise they might get lost if they don't know where Hernan Velarde is. If I return to Lima I would probably stay there again.

We arrived late at night and were pleased to be met at the airport by a driver arranged by the hotel. On arrival at La Posada we were impressed with the quiet location, in a cul de sac, but near the centre of town and the house itself was quaint. The rooms were traditional, sleeping was difficult as my bed had a plastic under-sheet, which made it very hot during the night. Only one towel was provided. There were many signs telling guests what they were allowed, or not allowed to do; giving a less than welcoming feel to the place. Breakfast was very poor - it would have been better to rent the accommodation on a "room only" basis.
We could easily walk to the cathedral area and felt that with a very little effort the owners could make La Posada a really thriving business - it just needs a bit of thought and a better breakfast!

We were very disappointed by this place during our stay in Lima.
First, an unfriendly welcome at our arrival ... and they asked us to pay the totality of our stay before even entering the room (it is the only time we had this situation in three weeks in Peru !).
The room had nothing special and the breakfast was bad and unconsistent : 2 toasts, a very small dosis of marmelade/butter, orange juice in powder ...
Moreover, the rules of this hotel (posted in the room) are incredible, just an example : if you check in before noon you will be charge 50% more during the low season and 100% during high season (one more night for just a few hours !). Fortunately, we were not in this hotel at our early arrival in Lima and had the chance to have our room at 7AM without additional charge in the Hotel Kamana.
Finally, during the check-out, the manager was (for the first and only time) nice with us ... and asked us to put a favorable review on the web ... so we did it !

Mylene O's review pretty much expresses it to a "T". First, you are met at the airport and way overcharged for a transfer in a vehicle that looks like it may not make it across town -- I'm confident the taxi driver wasn't the beneficiary of the amount the hostal charged for this service. Sad. Then you are forced to pay for your entire stay up front the moment you check in. Rules are posted in the room -- more rules than I've ever had at any place I've stayed. For example, "no refunds for any reason" -- nowhere else in the world is this rule posted IN the room. There was NO electrical outlet in the bathroom. There was one electrical outlet that worked part of the time in the bedroom and there was no mirror near the outlet, so blow drying hair was interesting. The room we had had no windows to the outside, but had windows above the door (which was held together by masking tape) to the interior hallway. There were no coverings on the high windows, and the light in the hall shined directly into the room, making nighttime seem like daytime. Breakfast was pathetic. Coffee was instant, and free, BUT if you wanted a second cup you would need to pony up a dollar. Breakfast starts at 8 a.m. sharp, and don't even think of asking for your allotted cup of instant coffee before 8 a.m. We reserved a matrimonial room. Upon arrival, we were told there were two beds in our assigned room and if we used the second bed, we would be charged the fee of a room with two beds in it instead of just one. Want to check out late? Be ready to pay, cause they won't extend the courtesy, this is also written on the "rules" posted in the room. What's good about it? It's pretty from the outside and it is in a good location.
