Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

Do Not stay in this hotel if you want to sleep!

We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

You pay using a prepaid touch card, a bit like an Oyster card for those Londoners out there. Is this all sounding familiar...? Remember all the free walking tours we've taken around South America? Well this time I was treated to a "Walking With Phil" free tour of the centre of Lima. Armed with Lonely Planet in hand, we took ...

... around the university and large markets with cheap Chinese products around Chinatown made Lima an interesting city to explore. However it is chaotic, dirty, dangerous but somehow charming as well. I did not get robbed, neither “express kidnapped” by fake taxi drivers and met extremely friendly locals. After 2 days I was ready to make my way to Cuzco and Machu ...

... us pay more attention to the bones we were cleaning! We had just started to get to know them and be more confident about which bones came from which place when it was time for us to move on again on Tuesday, this time to textiles. In textiles, Diana gave us each a textile (I had a bag and Emma had a cloth). Over the next three days, we traced the outline and creases of our individual textile onto acetate/OHP paper, and then from there onto tracing paper and coloured them in. This was ...

... appeared. After waitiing for ages we were told they had been sent through to Lima Another one hour wait in Quito and then a 2 hour flight to Lima. We arrived there about 10-30pm and by the time we got through Customs and waited for everyone to get their bags it was after 11-30. Fortunately it was a short walk across the street to the Ramada Airport hotel where we were given a free Pisco Sour as a welcome drink. Finally made it to our room and bed about 12-30. A long day!!

First we were struck by the beautiful colonial plazas, of the Inka conqueror Pizzarro's palace and gracious Inglesia de Santo Domingo whose patron saint Santa Rosa de Lima is buried.
