Sleep with the Presidents -- and Mick Jager

by Hans S on 17 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

This hotel is unique. Some reviewer I had read compared it with the Grand Budapest Hotel of movie fame -- I think there is some accuracy in that. Famous in its day and no significant capital outlays, updating, or investments have been made in it since. So why the 4-stars? Two answers: 1. its unique charm, 2. Where else in the world can you easily afford to sleep in the Presidential Suite ( A real presidential suite where real presidents, movie stars, and high roller of the era slept) We had...

Nostalgic But Let Down by the Area

Makeover needed!

by munrotop on 02 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

OK so a few celebs stayed here in past years. This stately pile needs to wise up and upgrade before it's too late. Decent junior suite half rack price through internet booking service. Good size rooms but cracked sink and oh so tired fixtures and fittings. I'll go for a modern hotel on the coast next visit.

Lima Antigua

by MiamiAbogado on 21 Dec 2016

Grand old hotel. Located on the Plaza Martin and a 5-10 minute stroll down Jiron de la Reunion to Plaza Mayor. The staff was very nice and while the room was ancient, it is a classic. Lots to do and plenty of restaurants in the area. One caveat; I was there on a Saturday night and there was a special event (party?) that rocked the hotel until 3 a.m. making sleep difficult.
