We were very pleasantly surprised with the elegance of this hotel when we entered from the street, as the exterior of the building is quite simple. The furniture and furnishings are beautiful, with original artwork on display (and available for sale). We were fortunate to have a lovely large room at the top of the building with a great view, (the disadvantage of no lift was outweighed by the lovely room).
Breakfasts were varied and delicious and we also enjoyed wonderful Pisco Sours in the evening.
The location is terrific, a very short walk to Plaza Grande which has excellent restaurants and beautiful buildings.
The staff, although speaking minimal English are very helpful. There is also a computer available for guests to use.
