In the last years, many people in Lima suggested that foreigners should not stay in this hotel. The reason: the surrounding area, close to downtown, used to be unsafe, and noone wants guests to be harrassed or attacked or have them see misery, drug addicts etc.
Those times are clearly over.
What used to be the first modern grand hotel of Lima is crawling back, and well worth a stay if you need a place close to downtown businesses.
Little by little it is being modernised. Well, rooms still emanate some 70s charm and some of the layout may seem a bit odd (like the washbasin stuck between the bathroom and the bedroom, separated from the bedroom part by an opaque glass wall. And the enormous atrium (see foto) also seems a bit out of place.
But otherwise this hotel offers all you can expect from a hotelo belonging to this hotel chain. Good beds, good sheets, large-size TV, a good gym, a tennis court, a nice pool, even an outside running track, a nice bar (air condintion set a bit too cold to my taste), and, above all, excellent restaurants.
The breakfast buffet is sumtuous, and offers very good quality, a large variety of fresh frit, pastry, and even an Asian corner, catering to the tastes of many Asian guests (or guests of Japanese origin).
The separate hotel restaurant offers an excellent lunch buffet and meats "rodizo" style (the waiters cutting off slices of meat (a large variety) off large spades, until you say "no thank you".
This is a hotel I would choose again if I return to Lima on business.
