Rooms are quite big and the position of this hotel is very central. By walking you can easily reach the 2 main squares of Lima, the pedestrial road and the Monastery of San Francis (catacombs and ancient library).

I stayed in Bonbini two years ego, on entering and exiting Peru, and was happy with their services, so I chose it again. It keeps good working. It is catering mostly to Latin American clientele, so their English is limited, but it was not an issue for me. (The English email support was immediate and great.) The hotel is -...

Book here if you're looking for an average hotel in the center of Lima. Our room was spacious, quiet enough and the breakfast was decent (our only hotel in Peru serving tamales!). We didn't try the hotel restaurant.

We stayed in this hotel in May 2015 for one night. The hotel's only virtue is it's proximity to the Plaza and to the many restaurants. It is scruffy and distinctly unappealing. The staff is not bilingual - not their fault, of course. However, it should not be billed as such. A real disappointment.

We stayed here for two nights, and although our mattress was rock hard and the pillows lumpy. it made up for this in its room size and hot shower. Breakfast was nice and consisted of cereals, warm bread rolls, eggs, and jams with plenty of orange juice, Tea and Coffee The Hostel is well located to the Colonial heart of...

I stayed at Bonbini twice, before my trip to the south of Lima, and on way back. Should agree with all positive reviews. It is authentic, although people looking for more Western comfort, should head to Miraflores. For the downtown, it is a very sound solution. I should mention, it has computers with free internet, good airport pick-up service (cheaper...

I negotiated a reduced rate for a 3 day stay (75 soles per night). Given that, it was fine. Nice common areas and the wifi works well there, but not in the room. Breakfast started out great with strong coffee, queso, jamon, etc. But each day they put out progressively less as more guests arrived. Room sheets are clean, bathroom...

We stayed here in July 2013 because it was the departure point for a Dragoman overland trip. The room was relatively large, the bed was comfortable and everything seemed clean. The bathroom was basic but functional and again clean. The room had cable TV and there was supposedly WiFi through the place but it wasn't very good (welcome to South...
