TravelPod Member ReviewsCasa Bella B&B Boutique Hotel Lima
After four days in the jungle at Puerto Maldonaldo, Casa Bella is just what you need. Not too far from the airport, kindly arranging airport pickup and dinner reservation, spotless and comfy with lots of hot water! Staying there enabled us to go and see the fabulous fountains at the Parque de la Reserva and to dinner at Huacca Pucclana for our last night in Peru ... fabulous!

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Bella B&B Boutique Hotel Lima
Peruvian Hospitality At Its Best
My visit to Peru was my first trip to a foreign country and the Casa Bella staff and owners helped make it a wonderful experience. From the moment I contacted them for reservations until the moment I left they were helpful and fun to be around. I was in Lima for my son's wedding and one of Casa Bella's owners (Orlando) helped us arrange for transportation to the church and extra fans to keep the groom "cool" before his big event. You would have thought we were family and for that I will be forever grateful.
Rather than feeling like backpackers in another hostel, we felt like Limenos when we stayed at Casa Bella (make that wealthy, well-connected Limenos, as this is a beautiful property in one of the nicest suburbs). The rooms are spacious and clean, with cable TV. Bathrooms have hot showers with huge baskets full of towels. It's a $2 cab ride to Miraflores or a $3 to Barranco, but we thought the peace and quiet in San Isidro was well worth it. If you feel like staying in for the evening, walk the 4 blocks to the wonderful grocery store on Dos de Mayo (ask the owners), and cook in the kitchen.
Good cost x benefits
Since we had a date problem with the other bb we booked previously, the only room available in Casabella for the day we needed was one to the entrance/main street view and with a restroom outside the room. (it was very big).The only problem of it was the cars noise at night. It seemed to be an office room so the window was not well sealed. On the other hand, the house and the others rooms are very nice, confortable, big, with new pillows, confortable matress, towels, the breakfast is good and the owner is extremely friendly, kind and helpful. It is located in a safe neighbourhood and you can go walking to he Huaca Puclana. Considering that you go to Lima to stay most of your day around, all you need is a clean, confortable, safe and pleasant place to stay. So, this is the place!
Fantastic Casa Bella
The Sanchez family of Casa Bella Villa is so gracious, kind, and extremely helpful. They speak perfect English as well as several other other lanuages fluently. Their mansion is located in the upscale San Isidro neighborhood. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculate. There are several warm, cozy locations on the property to relax indoors or outside in a lovely garden area. I definitely expect to return to this very friendly, homey Casa Bella. I recommend it highly. Enjoy!
My wife and I arrived in Lima from LA and we had called Casa Bella the night before we left. The hotel arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport, sign in hand, who dropped us off 35 minutes later at the hotel. The service at the hotel was absolutely impeccable, wireless internet, a room to the back yard and a very friendly welcome made this stay a perfect launch pad for our Peru vacation. Definitely highly recommended.
Feels good to be there again
Like always we had a very pleasant stay in Casa Bella.
Since we know Lima like locals (my wife is from Lima) we know Casa Bella is in one of the best and most save districts of Lima.
The family is very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much asked for them.
Rooms are spacious with complete bathrooms and with a good shower which is not always logical in Lima since in other areas they have water pressure problems.
Breakfast goes from continental (which is included) up to a full breakfast when you pay some extra for it.
The house is enormous and has a big enclosed garden.
What do we think about them? See you next year dear family Sanchez!!!!!!
Ein ganz spezieller Aufenthaltsort
Mein Mann und ich waren hier insgesamt vier Nächte. Aber nicht hintereinander. Als wir zuerst nach Lima flogen, blieben wir dort zwei Nächte, und der Service war ausgezeichnet. Man holte uns am Flughafen ab und brachte uns auch dort wieder hin ohne Schwierigkeiten, obwohl wir das B&B um 3 Uhr morgens verlassen mussten, um unser Flugzeug am Lima-Flughafen zu erreichen. An der Tür wurden wir gleich von ihrem goldigen jungen Hund begrüßt, sodass wir uns sehr heimisch fühlten, weil wir selbst zwei Hunde haben und ich beruflich mit Hunden arbeite. Sie fuhren uns zum indianischen Markt und sogar zur Plaza im Zentrum von Lima. Wir gingen auch zu Fuß zu einem Hotel, das einen Block weiter war und aßen dort Lunch mit einer besonderen Note. Dort war eine Delphin-Vorführung. Die Delphine sind in dem Hotel untergebracht und das war sehr interessant. Etwa eine Woche darauf flogen wir von Iquitos zurück nach Lima. Wir hatten vor, die Nacht in Barranco Backpackers zu verbringen und frühmorgens am nächsten Tag den Flug nach Cusco zu nehmen. Wir wollten den Strand und einen anderen Teil der Stadt sehen, aber das war nicht
möglich, weil Barranco Backpackers uns nicht wie geplant am Flughafen abholte. Wir riefen Orlando im Casa Bella B&B an und innerhalb von einer halben Stunde wurden wir abgeholt. Sie brachten uns sogar am nächsten Morgen um 3 Uhr zurück zum Flughafen. Wir waren an dem Abend sehr müde und Orlando bestellte Pizza für uns. Wer etwas für B&Bs übrig hat und das Familienzugehörigkeitsgefühl, der sollte hierherkommen. Orlando spricht sehr gut Englisch, was sehr wichtig war, weil unser Spanisch nicht so gut ist.
Very special place to stay
My husband and I stayed here for a total of 4 nights. But this was not in a row. When we first flew into Lima we stayed here for 2 nights and the service was excellent. They picked us and dropped us off at the airport with no hassle even when we had to leave the B & B at 3AM to catch flights at the Lima airport. We were greeted at the door by their very cute puppy and it made this place feel right at home, we own 2 dogs and I work with dogs for a living. They drove us to the Indian market and even to the plaza in downtown Lima. We also walked to a hotel that was a block away and ate lunch with a twist, there was a show with dolphins that lived at the hotel and it was interesting. About a week later, we flew back to Lima from Iquitos and we were planning to stay at Barranco Backpackers for the night until our flight out the next early morning to Cusco, we wanted to see the beach and a different part of town but that was not going to happen because Barranco Backpackers never picked us up at the airport like they had planned. We called Orlando at the Casa Bella B & B and within 1/2 hour they came to pick us up. They even brought us back to the airport the next morning at 3AM. We were sleepy that night and Orlando ordered out pizza for us. If you like B & B's and the family feel this place is for you. Orlando's English is very good and that was helpful because our Spanish was not so good.
Best value ever!
This used to be the family home but now the Sanchez family has turned it into a hotel. I stayed there for 2 nights during my first ever trip to Lima. I was pleasantly surprised right away because, even though my airplane was 2 hours late getting into Lima, Edward was there from the hotel to pick me up. My room had 2 double beds and it was a huge room with a huge balthroom, which was nicely tiled. There was another bathroom next to mine and I knew this because there was a little vent or window between my bathroom and the one next door. It was kinda weird hearing someone else pee over there, and I sure they didn't enjoy my bathroom noises. There was TV with cable and a phone in the room. I wouldn't call the decor fancy, but I only paid $35 per night. They don't like to take credit cards for charges of less than $100.
I stayed at another hotel in Miraflores for the rest of my stay, but Edward, who speaks very good English and who is very friendly, offered to take me back to the airport when I was leaving. He was right on time, and the ride back in his new Suzuki sedan was much more pleasant than going in one of the little yellow cabs.
Overall, it was clear why this place was listed in the Lonely Planet guide book. It is a great value in a nice safe neighborhood. Not much commercial activity near the hotel though.
Spent my honeymoon at Casa Bella and loved it!
After careful search for a place in Peru, my husband and I decided to book Casa Bella for our honeymoon. Three days after getting married we arrived in Lima and had an airport transfer waiting to take us to the bed and breakfast. Everything was seamless, the room was huge, bathroom huge and we had a great view of the back lawn, greenery, a tree and plush grass.
The staff lets you use the kitchen to prepare meals (we are vegetarians) and store food in their refrigerator which was a great plus for us since South America is heavy on meat consumption. Also, continental breakfast is included, but this really is just bread, jam, juice and coffee. There's a starbucks nearby and a very expensive luxury hotel one block away if you want to go there to get spa treatments or for fancy dining (the building has a big Dolphin on it and there is a pool with real dolphins in it just inside the lobby. Also, several taxis are always in front of this hotel and your commute to any part of Lima will only be about 10-15 minutes to the popular parts.)
Each room has a telephone and cable TV and the best part is Casa Bella has two computers, one on each floor, with free internet. We even hooked up the ethernet cords to our own computers to download and store our emails. They don't have wireless access though, so if you take a laptop know that you won't be able to surf from your room (but why would you do this on vacation?)
All in all, we had a wonderful, intimate time in a very luxurious and safe neighborhood and we didn't have to experience that "Chain hotel" feeling we dread so much. Our honeymoon experience was great because of Casa Bella. Their price is cheap but the atmosphere and service is not.

Travel Blogs from Lima
Not surprisingly, Lima was cloudy when we arrived and the air temperature was a bit of a shock going from 95 in the jungle to 60 in Lima. We planned a last night in Lima just in case there were flight delays leaving the jungle, but since we were here ...
We started with a visit to the Parque de la Reserva, where there are fountains, …
... and our room was comfy and clean with all that we needed. Breakfast included cornflakes and bread rolls, which you could have with jam, squeeky cheese (I think this could be alpaca cheese, but Josh isn't so sure), or Lucuma Paste (this is a type of Golden Berry which grows locally in Peru, it is very delicious!).
As you would have read from our last blog we had bought a plane ticket back to Fort Lauderdale which we needed to cancel and get refunded ...
... a waterfront park and several squares that were lovely. We visited the Hotel Bolivia, which was the first grand hotel built in Lima. The Plaza Armas has the president's house and offices are on one side of the plaza. The cathedral and archbishop's residence is on another side and the mayor's office is on another side. It has been the same since Pisarro founded Lima. We had an early night since we were all ...
... water park last night, fountains and lasers, it was pretty good and we spent a couple of hours there, just wandering around and snapping photos
During the day it was just a case of walking and snapping away, we saw the riot police and had our picture taken with them, we saw the guards and took their photos and the other local police (they do seem to have quite a few different police forces out here, even mounted on horses and motor bikes)
We went down ...
