... valuable set of exhibits was recently donated by Bishop Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, from his private collection. His family are members of Opus Dei and are very wealthy in Peru. The Cathedral is also interesting as it is constructed from wood which has more give than stone, which is important as Lima sits on a major fault line so is prone to earthquakes. The walls and pillars are coated with a plaster which looks like marble. The only give always are when you tap the columns and ...
After 24 hours travel we arrived in Lima at 5:30 am. Our local guide Oscar met us to take us to Miraflores, the beautiful district with a lovely park full of happy people dancing in a sunken area surrounded by onlookers clapping and having a good time. The park is full of feral cats cared for by the people. it was a surprise to look up in a tree to see a cat curled up in the branches. We met ...
... were well over 500 to 600 years old. But the main highlight of the tour was being able to go underground to see the catacombs. These catacombs were Lima's first cemetery located below the monastery. It is said that these catacombs contain more than 70,000 burials. One area contains several large deep holes, filled with bones and skulls arranged above each other in circular patterns. It was an amazing, dark, and eerie feeling being down there especially after our ...

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!!!!!!
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
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.
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.
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.
