We stayed at this hotel for five nights at the start of our Peruvian trip. We asked for a quiet room overlooking the courtyard, and that's what we got. Here are the pros, cons, and recommendations for other travelers:
Location - it's in Miraflores but not right in the noisy center but instead a quiet residential street. We thought the location was perfect.
Close to public transportation
Hotel offers free airport pickup, which was great - so nice to sign a smiling man with your name on a card after a long day of airports and flights
Breakfast - loved the variety and eggs cooked to order.
The breakfast room - airy, large, light
Warm friendly staff, both at front desk and breakfast room. I loved being greeted with, "welcome home" when we would return to the hotel
Hotel's honesty. - when I was reserving the room, they told me about some construction going on and offered free transport back to the airport as compensation for the construction inconvenience.
View of the courtyard from our room, and the courtyard itself, just beautiful.
The lobby was beautifully decorated, especially for Christmas, which is when we were there
No drinking water in their lobby, or even complimentary bottles of water upon arrival. We arrived after midnight but luckily we had a UV water filter with us. There isn't a store close by.
The carpet was stained and the room didn't feel sparkling clean, but now that we are in our fourth week of traveling, we know now that most Peru hotels are like that.
Recommendations for other travelers:
Be specific about wanting a larger room. We had room 206. Some rooms are much smaller.
If you are arriving late, buy water at the airport or bring your own water filter. We have been using a Steripen Ultraviolet light which runs on lithium batteries and never worry about running out of water.
Look for San Antonio restaurant and Tanta restauant about five blocks from the hotel. They both have great food and safe salads which are excellent.
