The Sonesta Posada Del Puente is located right on the bridge by the Avenida Grau. It?s quaint and while the rooms are smaller, they are very clean and well kept. (This is of major importance to us - while we don`t need five-star hotels, cleanliness and safety are very important.)
The hotel has a terrific restaurant and the staff are pleasant and helpful. It`s a short 10-minute walk to the Plaza de Armas and the Convento de Santa Catalina is right on the way. There is no air conditioning though, but we found the late afternoon breezes to be refreshing and pleasant.
The hotel also has beautiful grounds just overlooking the Rio Chile. Many cute patio sets, shady trees and resident llama and tortoise add to the charm. Finally, the price is incredibly reasonable. We found this hotel on-line and paid the princely sum of US$55 per night - a bargain considering location, cleanliness and convenience.
Unique Quality: The restaurant and bar are built interestingly enough into the side of the hill - so from the lobby, you actually descend to the restaurant, which serves an excellent selection of Peruvian wines. The grounds are immaculately kept and the shady trees and patio seating make for great ambience. We felt totally relaxed here!
