Location is excellent. It looks old from outside, but comfortable in the inside. This hotel does not cheat, a double with bathroom and clean for 45 soles is better than a good deal. Highly recommended.

Stayed a total of 3 nights in room #29 (2nd floor) and #30 (3rd floor) during May 2010. POSITIVES: Location just off Plaza de Armas is great. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel itself has charming decor and helpful staff. The 2nd floor garden/restaurant area (complete with the tortises and parrots) is a great place to unwind...

This was my last destination of my Peru vacation so, given, I was tired by this point. It was in a good area, literally right around the corner from San Domingo. Very good area for sight-seeing but the area is a little off at night. Not a lot of restaurants around either. The hotel itself was rather empty when I...

This is a unique and fascinating hotel, since it's a converted 19th Century building and is full of art, animals, and character. However, it's also more of a youth hostel, so it's important if you're on the geezer side of life (or not happy inhaling second-hand smoke) and need some smoke-free sleep to get a room that is far from...

My friend and I walk in at 4am and we are both like ‘Is this a hotel or a museum? For $7 per person per night, you CANNOT go wrong! First time in Hotel Espana we took a 5-6 dormroom but had it all to ourselves. The second time we took a private WC shower on the uppermost level, which...

So glad we stayed here instead of Miraflores or Barranco as recommended. Delightful decor with real atmosphere. Had a large room with own bathroom and it was great. Loved the rooftop with the plants and animals (cat / tortoises / parrots). Pickup to and from airport worked out great for us. Breakfast very cheap in rooftop cafe. For the price...

My wife and I flew into Lima late in the evening and decided to stay this hostel. we were spending 3 nights in lima and since we are on a limited budget, we decided to stay at the hotel/hostal espana for the first night to save money before moving to a nicer place. After waiting for 20 minutes to for...

Hi! We were at hotel espana this past month. We stayed there for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip, then for a night at the end. We did try to change the last night, but couldn't find anything else comparable available. When we arrived the first night, exhausted after a 12 hour flight, the taxi from their hotel...

Great place to be ideally located in Central Lima, my room even had a view to the San Francisco Monastery. Raquel and Manuel, the owners, were great at recommending places nearby and really take care of the place as their own breed. The sculptures and paitings bring you back to an old-style mansion full of character. A definite recommendation in...

But when you stay at a hotel that could be mistaken for a museum, who cares. We took a room for 3 that didn't have its own bathroom, but had the best entranceway (see photo). The shared shower/bathroom were a bit basic, as was the room, and the beds were a bit, well, soup bowlish. But we'd stay again for...
