The best hotel in lima
The hotel is perfect, elegant and lovely and we have never experienced such incredible service before. They have an excelent restaurant and bar. Believe me, the best hotel in the beutiful Lima. A little bit expensive but really fabulous.
Pleasant and accommodating staff, excellent food, wonderful rooms. Excellent choice for couples.
First Rate Hotel
This hotel was of this highest standard. We had a room on the ground floor but the hotel were careful to keep us well away from the weddings party that was going on during our visit.
The room was large (possibly upgraded) and we could walk out to an almost private area in front of the gym and small swimming pool - almost like having a private terrace.
The staff could not have been more helpful - all of the reception staff helped with the translation of a menu that had been sent to us by a travel company.
The breakfast on the terrace was exceptional and definately the best in Peru.
Dinner was also very good and the number of options on the menu meant you could stay for several days without repeating choices.
All in all an elegant colonial hotel with great room, great service and great food
Lovely Hotel and friendly staff
I don't agree with one of the comments below with regards to this hotel's 5 Star status - I think it is a superb hotel with very helpful staff. If you go for one of the larger rooms upstairs, mine was a 'Gran Class' they are very spacious with lovely clean marble bathrooms. Their website offers very good deals on the rooms. Granted, the 'taxi' service they offer is costly - but you get picked up in a nice car (it is more like a private car service than a taxi) and at least you know you will arrive safely with no hassle!!! I really enjoyed my stay here (although brief) and would recommend it.
Beautiful historical hotel in a first class residential neighborhood. Helpful staff...well trained. Elegant lobby and facilities...great for business and pleasure travel. Affiliated spa is wonderful. Amazing value for a very large and airy room. Not sure about the "damp, basement" comments in other reviews...we had two couples in separate rooms/floors and were both very pleased. We were on floor 2 and they were on floor 3. Would definitely return.
Gorgeous hotel -- damp, basement rooms
On arriving at this hotel, we couldn't believe our eyes. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous, from the outside to the lobby to the rooms and dining areas. However, there were some major things that disappointed us. The first was our room. While stunning in size and decor, it was incredibly damp and musty, and the beds are rock hard. There was only one small window to a very small courtyard, so it was impossible to get fresh air. Plus, to get to the room, we had to go down a set of stairs from the lobby. This gave us the eerie feeling of staying in a basement. It just felt very closed in. In addition to the room, we felt that this hotel overcharged us in taxi fees. They charge $20 to get to the airport. Granted it's a nice car, but we paid $8 with a normal taxi. It's kind of a rip-off. I think you can stay in a better hotel in Lima for half the price. Maybe not as luxurious in decor, but perhaps more friendly and reasonably priced.
Nice hotel but some real management problems
We stayed here twice during our recent trip and while the rooms were great ( except the first floor which was musty) the management of the hotel leaves a great deal to be desired. While at the restaurant ( where the food was good but very expensive -$80 for lunch 2 adults two children no drinks) my 9 year old daugther found a staple in her salad! While one understands that mistakes happen it is how they are handled which proves the worth of a hotel. Notwithstanding the life threatening nature of the problem they wanted to still charge us for the entire meal including the salad. When I expressed my concern they agreed just to take off the salad. This was the worst I have known and totally unprofessional. Nice rooms but be warned . It is not a true 5 star
The stay began well - with the car the hotel sent to meet us at Lima airport at a quarter to one in the morning waiting to whisk us away from a back door - avoiding all the throng in arrivals. On arrival we were made very welcome with champagne and shown to our room. The room was on the second floor and had a view of a park - which was interesting to watch the comings and goings. We found the staff friendly and helpful - both at breakfast time and also just drinking in the bar which was old colonial style. The location of the hotel was away from the main centre - a good thing, as it is easy to feel quite threatened when using cashpoints etc, and a short taxi ride from Miraflores where there are lots of great bars and restaurants - lets face it with taxi's so cheap, why walk? On our return we couldn't get in to the Country Club and in desperation agreed to stay at The Antigua, Miraflores. Their guestbook was full of stories of muggings and the rooms were very very damp and the staff rude - refusing us breakfast because it was 5 minutes too early etc.
Stayed here for a total of four nights and could not fault it. Large comfortable rooms with grand opulent bathrooms, good quality toiletries and towels and complimentary mineral water, exqusite entrance lobby/lounge (think 1920's Hollywood film star Spanish mansion style) with complimentary fresh orange juice at check in and excellent service. Breakfast on terrace a delight (wild parrots in the gardens a hoot to watch) as was a dinner we took there one evening (we also went to the the Los Delphins for dinner next door one evening. That was more Holiday Inn style but still very good.) Small swimming pool but too tired to use with all wonderful sight seeing. Lima is a huge sprawling city but the Country Club was in a good location.
Awful damp rooms!
Unfortunately my tour of Peru included 2 stays at this hotel. The rooms smelled of damp and there were stains on the bedroom carpets.
In fact, on my 2nd stay I had to ask to move rooms as the smell of damp was so bad. I mentioned to reception that the whole basement floor smelled.
The breakfast table was stained as well, so overall a shabby hotel in need of refurbishment.

Lima was a “great” surprise. We were there for just a day, but we were finally back in “South America” – with its attendant chaos, dust and noise - a very different feel to the European-ness of Argentina and Chile.

We left Hijos at 4, and headed back to the retreat house for Spanish. After Spanish we had supper with 2 Peruvian teachers, one from Pacifico and one from Tupac. We had a discussion after supper about the differences between our 2 educational systems. Teachers are off work at 1:30 and often have second jobs as they are not paid a living wage. Those who teach do it for the love of it, not for the lifestyle or ...
