“Nice room, horrible bathroom”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2009

The hotel is situated on a street with a lot of traffic, close to a bus stop. The proximity to a bus stop and a street crossing means everybody is using their car horns, and the noise level is high. There are literally just few hours of silence at night, between the time the traffic dies out and the beginning of the morning rush. Forget about sleeping off your jet-lag there!

The stuff is helpful but they do not speak English. The place is stuffed 24 hours a day with a receptionist and a security guard. After 10-11 PM the door gets closed and barred with steal bars.
When we checked out, they had some problems with accepting foreign credit cards, so we had to pay with cash, which we fortunately had, but only just enough!

The room was spacious, newly painted, clean and had a big bed. The bathroom on the other hand stood in stark contrast to the room – small, cramped, cold, with holes in the walls where piping was exposed and (!!!) a huge hole in the ceiling, partly covered with cardboard. I am not sure what was above us, but since we could hear our neighbors clearly, I'd bet there was another bathroom just above ours! And if the person occupying the room above us wanted to, they could have seen us walking naked in and out of the shower! The water was not always warm, but if it was, the bathroom was filled with damp after just a quick shower.

The place was very conveniently situated for our purpose with the stay, but if you are an average tourist wanting to see Lima, you will find Yeyas much too far from everything – a taxi drive to San Isidoro, airport and Museo Larco take between 45 and 60 minutes, depending on the traffic!
The place serves breakfast, but I did not eat there – the first morning I could not find the eating room (!!!OK, I could have asked, but I was not THAT hungry to try out my Spanish so early in the morning!), and the next two mornings we could not eat because of early departures ( it is served between 7 or 8 and 10).
