Travel Blogs from Lima
The bags are packed, the vaccines are completed and now it is time to head to Lima, Peru. Lima is the start of a journey that will take me across Peru and then to Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was scheduled to leave Philadelphia at 1145. Despite the storms in the area, I had an on time departure. I arrived in Atlanta around 2:00PM. I connected with …
After the lo-o-o-o-ng flight from Shanghai to Mexico, and then Mexico to Peru, we finally arrived in Lima. We landed at about 6am Peruvian time, about 30 hours after we left China... but only 10 or so "real" hours. Time zones traveling West across the international date line = mind blown. We spent two days in Lima. The first was spent recovering …
We are right on schedule. Curt, Les' husband, met our car at the curb. It's pretty quiet at the airport and we checked in quickly.
The previous sentence was a bit premature. And I think that I didn't actually get it posted. We were on schedule getting to the airport. The flight soon showed a 20 minute delay due to bad weather in Atlanta. …
After a 6 plus hour flight from Houston, we arrived in Lima. What can I say, but "Interesting Place". We took a cab from the airport through some rather downtrodden areas and dark, sinister back alleys, finally relieved to find the Sheraton. Susan definitely likes Cisco Powers ... - I mean Pisco Sours.... The cab ride took 3 years off my life. …
The flight to Lima was surprisingly on time! Since our bags were checked through to Sao Paulo; we were able to go freely around town and check out a few markets. We took the cheap collectivo minibus. Many people at the airport were trying to push us into taxis, but they were way overpriced. I felt safer in a minibus with normal people-businessmen, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Lima Hotel & Convention Center
This hotel is in a scary area
I was only there for one night and this is what it looked like out the window.
I found Lima a bit scary and would recommend people who are worried about security only stay in Miraflores.
i stayed in this hotel as i thought that the sheraton was a well established name! the hotel in itself has a good location. it is clean and the rooms are ok....but i would've expected better for the price.
sad thing is that after the long flight and everything, sleep is generally needed.....but it was hard to get any. the toilets make so much noise it can keep waking you up, even when its people to either side of you. as with these hotels...it is all over-priced. the hotel also lacked character and warmth. not very inviting, get better service from smaller hotels.
The hotel is in a great location for exploring the historical part of Lima, with the Palace of Justice on the doorstep, art museums around the corner and just five minutes from Plaza San Martin and just a further 7 blocks to Plaza Mayor.
It Was Great
I found the Sheraton to be a nice hotel. Staff very friendly food was great and the bar with karokee was hilarious. I enjoyed it for 3 nights I toured Peru for 2 months and it was my last stop before going home to Canada Toronto
We just returned from a stay at the Sheraton Lima, 2 adults, 2 teens and found it seriously in need of an update. It has that faded look of a 70's hotel. Dull, heavy furnishings, saggy beds and drab, dreary furnishings. Worst of all, there are constant lines of tour buses parked in front of the hotel that spew gagging fumes. The lobby and bar are filled with the smell of diesel exhaust. There are always mountains of baggage filling the lobby so you are left with the impression you're staying in a bus station. The staff is extremely helpful, but so is everyone in Lima. The location of the Sheraton is excellent IF you like the old city and its fabulous architecture. It is also just a few blocks to the amazing Povlos Azules market. It has hundreds of stalls (indoors) where you can buy ANYTHING from athletic shoes to cameras - a real adventure. I'd rather stay somewhere without the tour buses blocking the entrance.
took me awhile to post this review because i am new to this site....I always stay at this hotel in Lima, i go at least once or twice a year.. We always stay at the Kings Tower deluxe Level Room :) always a pleasure to enjoy the finer things in a hotel , the staff and doormen are extremely nice. They are also very helpful. The beds are a nice softness to them and the rooms are spacious and clean :) The bathrooms are in excellent shape and separate space next to bathroom to wash face and or get dressed is extremely nice. The hotel staff are very efficient and quick to responses. They recommended very nice tour company that picks up and return u to the hotel. Nice big casino, lots of fun. The lobby is quite nice and the business room is adequate. Breakfast is quite nice and a variety is every morning sure to satisfy everyone , even the picker eater that I am (american food also a choice) DIfferent programs occur in ballroom and lobby, quite unique.. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel :)
Thumbs up: STAFF(I read negative staff reviews on this site and I think to myself, AM I THE ONLY PERSON WHO UNDERSTANDS ANYONE CAN HAVE A BAD DAY?!) The hotel has over 400 rooms...and tons of buses arriving at all hours of the day and night. I saw 30 odd people unloading, checking in and out all the time! I thought the staff were lovely given the general tone and attitude of the guests I saw exhibited during my 4 day stay.
We stayed here for one night after spending three weeks around Peru. We were hoping for a day of relaxation and pampering but were sorely disappointed. Stay here is you have business in the local area other stay in the Miraflores area.
We ended up staying here after our flight from Lima to Cusco was delayed for 24 hours, and we were put up by the airline.
Spent two nights in transit to/from Cusco the week prior to Easter. Booked on Sheraton website for $60 + tax and was upgraded upon arrival to a tower suite as a member of the rewards program. The Sheraton is a large, full-service, modern hotel in downtown Lima, about 20-30 minutes from the airport and across the street from the Palace of Justice. The tower suite was on the 17th floor and contained a bedroom/sitting area and a bath/dressing area. The room was well-appointed, featuring a blend of light and dark woods. The buffet breakfast, included in the rate, was excellent. The hotel also has two restaurants, casino, business center, in-room internet connection, travel agency and shopping. The staff is efficient, friendly and helpful. The hotel operates its own taxi fleet which means reliable transfers to/from the airport ($20, 1-4 persons) and touring ($10/hour) can be arranged either onsite or through the internet. The combination of luxury, price and convenience would be difficult to match at any world destination.
