The Hotel Jose Antonio is not the same as the Jose Antonio Executive, although they are close together and owned by the same company.
The rooms are clean and comfortable; bathrooms have both tub and shower. There is an elevator, free wi-fi, and lots of cable channels. The included breakfast is good.
I really liked the location--easy walk to Kennedy Park, Larco Mar, and the Parque de Amor. Jose Larco Av., a block away, is lined with shops, restaurants and services
I was at this Hotel for a week, I had a really great time here everybody was very nice, the room was new and clean, the location was close to the ocean at walking distance, close to the airport,the service was great, all the staff is very friendly, WIFI is good, I will come back at this nice Hotel very soon, and I do recomend this Hotel to all the travelers, it feels like a 5 star Hotel...
This was our very first time in Peru and we had only one night to stay in Lima before transiting to Cusco. We found this hotel while searching Venere.com and got a pretty decent rate of $80 per night. After talking to the owner, Harry, he told us that if he had contacted him directly we could have save about $10 per night.
He set up the taxi that picked us up from the airport and the hotel was about a 25 minute drive from the airport. Once we got there he settled us into our room and gave us great advice on what to see and where to spend our evening. He also gave us a heads up on how much the taxi should cost from place to place which was super helpful.
The hotel is a pretty large house with several different rooms. It was very quiet, as Harry said that there was only one other couple staying the night. Our room was large with a private bathroom, tv, king size bed, and private patio area with a hammock.
The rate included breakfast which was ready for us before our 7am departure. It consisted of eggs, toast, cheese, meat, corn, coffee, and juice. During breakfast, Harry sat with us and drew us a map of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. He gave us helpful hints on what to see and where to get hotels.
After breakfast, he flagged us a cab and negotiated a fair price for our ride to the airport.
We received excellent service that far exceeded our expectations. If we find ourselves in Lima again we will definitely stay here!
Our only complaints were that it was too far to walk anywhere, we had to get a cab to explore and that traffic from the hotel to the airport was horrendous. We nearly missed our flight. If you have a flight in the morning you need to leave AT LEAST 2 hours in advance.
I really recommend this accomodation. This flat has a confort like I have never seen ! Jaccuzzi, huge bed, the last television plasma full HD... The owner is french and very friendly you can place a reservation on the website.

This place is really nice, breakfasts are included and they are good by the way. There's wireless internet connection in the whole house. The owners may even take you out to visit the city, they are nice and friendly. The guesthouse is well located, it is not very far from the airport. There's a park, a supermarket and restaurants close to the guesthouse. You'll be able to use the kitchen and laundry room at any time.
You will feel like home!
Lima - Aj Turistico International
Av. Casimiro Ulloa 328
I always stay in this hostel.
It's clean, located in a safe area in Miraflores and costs about 30 dollars a night.
There is a small garden to relax, with a swimming pool and you can have breakfast for 5 dollars.
I got it from someone who visited Lima a lot of times.
Enjoy your trip to the jungle!
- Beautiful colonial house with a courtyard, portales surrounding the courtyard, gorgeous living room and dining room. The room was incredibly cozy and comfortable.
- The manager Toon Meeuwsen was really great. He owns a travel agency - Raymi Travels so you might find that useful.
- Offers airport pick-up service even at mid-night.
- Not in DOWNTOWN, which means it's relatively in a safer neighbourhood but this IS Lima so you still have to be careful.
- A little difficult to locate. Start recognizing the landmarks early so you'll be able to direct your cab-driver to 'right-about-there-i-think'.
The B&B Hostal Tradiciones was an excellent place to stay. The owner spoke perfect English. It was close to Miraflores center, about a 15 minute walk. And it was also within walking distance of Huaca Pucllana, a pyramind within the Lima city limits! There was hot water - all you had to do was ask the owner to turn on the heater and within an hour you had hot steamy water, a luxury in Peru.
The owner was extrememly helpful and hospitable. He had breakfast at the door waiting for us each morning, he provided maps and suggestions on what to see and how much things were (so the locals didn't rip us off) and arranged for taxis to and from restaurants a little more out of the way. When we left he gave us all a cute little bobble head turtle with the name of the Hostel on it.
My only complaint was that he loved to talk. It took us 45 minutes to get out of the hotel the first morning because he was so enthusiastic on what we should see in Lima. Not a big deal really.
We didn't plan this trip very well, as we went to the beach the Friday before New Years weekend without anywhere to stay. It was probably the busiest beach weekend of the whole summer - like showing up at the beach for 4th of July weekend in the States and thinking you'll find someplace to stay, let alone an affordable place.
After a few hours of talking to people and only finding expensive places to stay, we were getting a bit discouraged. While we were talking to someone on the road, he directed us to his nearby friend who might have room in his house. He was building a place for up to 10 people to stay in, but since it wasn't ready, he offered his daughter's room to us for $20 a night. It was a steep price compared to what Luis was used to, but I was relieved to finally find a place and since I was still used to US prices, it seemed cheap to me.
As we explored the place more, we realized that everything in Punta Hermosa was more expensive than other beaches. Also, many of the locals moved there from other countries and tended to bring their money with them.
Because it never rains at this beach, the house had a flat roof and part of it didn't have any covering at all. There was one room in the house that had patio furniture and no roof over it. Staying in the home was like having our own retreat. He also had a maid who had breakfast out for us the next morning. The house was very clean, but the sand must get in everything.
Staying here was a special treat for me, as the owner spent his winters working in the states and spoke very good English. He worked in a restaurant in the Hamptons during the US summers and made enough money to live off of that for the rest of the year in Peru. While we were there, his wife was in Florida working in someone's home.
Un hostal situado en el centro de Lima que fué originalmente la casa de un obispo y que ahora lo lleva Da.Rosa con mucho mimo y estilo
Te pueden organizar el transporte desde y al aeropuerto
An Inn located in the Lima center , that originnally it was a Bishop house and now Da. Rosa runs it with pampering and care´
They can arrange the transport to and from the airport
Great value for the money. Not in a walking district like miraflores but not dangerous either.
I would return again.
I would like to visit the places to eat again and the places I did not get to eat at and to visit Machu Picchu again.
For around $ 40 a night its a deal. Queen size bed with a small fridge a small hot tub with jets combo shower and free breakfast. I never ate at the breakfast .
24 hour front desk person and a doorman.
This is a good three star hotel in Barranco, only a few minutes walk from the main square and the promenade to the sea front.
We stayed there as part of a group so got a discount so it is more expensive if you book direct but still good value if you need a good night sleep to recover from jetlag.
The rooms were clean, except for the floor which was a bit dusty but clean by Peruvian's standards.
Large rooms, well insulated from street noise.
Friendly receptionist (did not speak English very well)
Left luggage service.
Very well located in Barranco.
It´s an average hotel, not luxurious, the place its ok, service was really bad, they have a problem with the bill, they where overcharging consuptions that i did not do, after discousing with them, they decide as a favor that they mistake on the general charge then ,we get even with the consuption ...mmmm not very transparent
The staff was friendly and helpful. I had asked them for suggestions for a restaurant and they did not disappoint. They even handed me a ticket for a free Pisco Sour at the restaurant, if I chose to go. The lobby had free internet service which was easy to use.
I stayed in a single room. The room was very clean and had a large window which could open up. The room had air conditioning which is a major plus on a hot day. The room also had cable TV and a mini fridge. The bathroom had hot water, a hair dryer and a bathtub.
The location could not be beat since it is in the middle of Miraflores. There are many stores and a Citibank near by. Kennedy Park is only 5 minutes away.
It is a nice hotel in a good location at a great price.
This is one of the classical Hotels in Lima, and one of the oldest. Might be a bit old fashioned now, but I liked it. I didn't sleep here (a bit above my budget) but went for a visit and had breakfast at its delicious terrace. The lobby and the stairs are great and all that 19th century style is simply wonderful!
