... Their hair was perfectly coiffed and they reminded me of John Travolta in Grease. They both flashed me million dollar smiles as I walked past. "Excuse me. You look lost...would you like to have lunch with us?" Franco said. In the space of a few milliseconds two thoughts flashed through my mind.

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Lima
Un excellent hôtel
Je suis resté une semaine au Media Lima en février 2007. C'est un excellent hôtel très bien entretenu. Les chambres sont très propres et assez spacieuses (du moins selon les critères européens). Les salle de bains sont géniales. Un menu riche et varié de petit-déjeuner vous attend dans la matinée avec beaucoup de fruits tropicaux et de jus de fruits frais. Les seuls inconvénients sont le bar un peu insipide et la piscine très petite. Le service est attentif et rapide dans tout l'hôtel. L'hôtel est à San Isidro et il y a beaucoup de restaurants à la mode dans le coin (au fait, la nourriture à Lima est une vraie révélation. Essayez le plat national, le cebiche !)
Ich verbrachte im Februar 2007 eine ganze Woche im Melia Lima. Es ist ein ausgezeichnetes und sehr gepflegtes Hotel. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und recht geräumig (jedenfall am europäischen Standard gemessen). Das Badezimmer ist super. Morgens erwartet einen ein reichhaltiges und vielfältiges Frühstücksbuffet, es gibt auch viele tropische Früchte und frische Säfte. Einziger Nachteil ist die eher langweilige Bar und der extrem kleine Pool. Der Service im gesamten Hotel ist aufmerksam und schnell. Das Hotel liegt in San Isidro, dort gibt es viele hippe Restaurants, die man alle gut erreichen kann. Nebenbei bemerkt, das Essen in Lima ist einfach göttlich. Man sollte mal das Nationalgericht Cebiche versuchen!
Me encantó el Melia
Mi familia y yo acabamos de volver de un viaje a Lima que hicimos hace 10 días. Recomendaría este hotel a cualquiera. El personal es amable y el hotel bonito y limpio ¡Que maravilla y que estancía tan agradable!
Un buen hotel en Lima
Un hotel muy agradable que cuenta con un personal servicial que siempre estaba dispuesto a ayudar. Nos habíamos dejado olvidado por error, desde luego, alguna pertenencia y el personal nos lo llevó mientras esperábamos el vehículo que nos iba a desplazar hasta el aeropuerto -merecen un diez. Las habitaciones están muy bien ordenadas y limpias. El restaurante ofrece un ambiente grato y el personal es servicial y eficiente. El desayuno bufé incluye una extensa variedad de alimentos y bebidas, aunque también el almuerzo y la cena ofrecen buenas opciones. Lo único negativo que encontré es que apesar de poder ir andando hasta la playa (que no está demasiado cerca), de alguna forma se encuentra fuera del centro de la ciudad y de Miraflores.
Loved the Melia
My family and I just got back from our trip to Lima teo days ago.
I would reccommend this hotel to anyone! The staff are so friendly and the hotel is nice and clean! What a wonderful, enjoyable stay!
Il Melia è adorabile
Io e la mia famiglia siamo appena tornati dal nostro viaggio a Lima dieci giorni fa. Consiglio questo hotel a chiunque! Il personale era estremamente cordiale e l'hotel era bello e pulito! È stato un soggiorno meraviglioso e molto piacevole!
I have stayed here twice in the last year, and will happily return when need be. The most recent time was last night, where I showed up without a reservation and got a fantastic rate.
As others have stated, the rooms are fairly simple, yet practical and very comfortable. I have always stayed in the cheapest 'standard' room, and they are very spacious for that classification. The beds are soft and comfortable, but pillows are somewhat small. However, this is quickly fixed with a call to the front desk, and extra pillows are brought up promptly.
The hi-speed Internet is very reliable, and has never cut out on me yet. I believe the cost is $8 USD per day, which is relatively inexpensive compared to many other hotels that charge for the service. It is through a cable modem. Cables are not provided in the room, so either bring your own or borrow one from reception.
The room service is very good, and I have never waited longer than 25 minutes for a meal. A follow up call is usually always placed by the operator to make sure the meal was satisfactory and arrived on time. The entire menu is 24 hours which is a huge plus for me, as my job keeps me on an unconventional timetable. The breakfast buffet is very extensive and has something for everyone.
I hesitated giving this hotel a 5/5 at first, due to it not being your glitzed up, ritzy 5 star. I then considered the value I received at $115 USD a night for a standard room. That combined with the fact I have experienced no faults during my stays allows me to give it a 5/5.
A good hotel in Lima
A very friendly hotel with helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Indeed when we checked out we had left something in the room by mistake and the staff brought it to us while we waited for our transport to the airport - full marks.
The rooms are in very good order and kept clean.
The restaurant has a pleasant ambiance and the staff are helpful and efficient. The breakfast buffet has a very large choice of foods and drinks, the lunch and dinner menus have good choices.
The only downside is that whilst it is within walking distance of (but not close to) the sea front it is someway out of the city centre and Mirafores.
Great Hotel. Friendly Staff. Business District.
Nice hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Very secure. Rooms are simple but comfortable. Walls are a bit thin. Great breakfast with everything fresh under the sun. A bit of a trek to get to the main tourist attractions located in San Isidro. For business this is a good location, more directed towards this clientle.
Very Nice Hotel in Lima, Peru
Stayed at the Melia Hotel in Lima, Peru, for first time last August (2004). I have to travel to Peru a few times during the year, and always stayed at another very good Hotel, the Sheraton Towers. This time I decided to change hotel, as this Hotel is in a better location.
Very pleasant hotel, ranked 5 stars, but rooms compared to the tower rooms of the Sheraton, I would say 4 Stars. Staff extremely friendly and polite. Business Services adequate, I held a meeting, using a small conference room for $10/hour. Internet is not free, but fast at their business center (not much privacy). Internet connection from room is $15/day.
Breakfast Buffet was very nice! They change the menu every day. My after dinner meeting with drinks at the Bar was good with great drinks and light food, but service was slow (it was late around midnight).
I filled-out a card with my comments on my last day at the hotel (I stayed 4 days), and when I got back to the USA, the Manager already had responded thanking me for the input. Not bad at all! I definetely would stay at this hotel again, for the quality and the great rate I got through a specialized website.
