“Chic and friendly hotel in the heart of Barranco”
Reviewed 13 January 2011

This hotel is very artistically decorated. The rooms were a bit spartan (though they did have a small flatscreen TV in them) but stylish. The shower has great water pressure and temperature. There is free coffee and tea throughout the day and a free breakfast (eggs and toast). Also free Internet access, both wireless and through the hotel computers.

We asked the staff for suggestions for where to go in Lima and they were extremely helpful in making reservations at restaurants, calling cabs, and other such things. The staff is also young but mostly knowledgeable, speak excellent English, and are very willing to help you.

The location is great. Quiet at night but safe. About a 20 minute walk to Larcomar and the heart of Miraflores.

Great value for the money.

We based our Peru trip out of 3B Barranco, spending a total of 5 nights there. It's a small B & B, with an excellent staff, good breakfasts (eggs, toast, fresh oj, fruit cup, coffee), and located in a safe part of greater Lima. You can walk to restaurants and the beach nearby. They will arrange airport pickup/dropoff for $20 US, and save you the hassle of bartering with airport taxi drivers. They have good security and are very personable with their guests. It seemed like a good value to us.

This bed & breakfast was very modern and quaint located in Barranco. The location is OK, but not near the center of everything. We walked to Miraflores and it wasn't that bad and the taxis are very cheap. As far as the rooms, they are a bit small, but are modern and are worth the price. My only complaint are the beds and sheets. They weren't that comfortable, but the rest of the room was perfect for our stay. The breakfast is cooked fresh and is simple, but very good. The reception staff were very courteous and helfpful during our stay. All in all, I would recommend this b&b. It is a good price and I would stay there again.

3B is an oasis. It is finished with taste and quality. The rooms are beautiful and the staff exceptional. It is incredibly good value for what you get. I would describe it as a 5+ star place, with a homely feel for 2-3 star prices.

The washroom is beautiful, the toiletries are great, and there is a huge selection of English television, something very welcome after 3 weeks in Peru. We stayed 4 nights on our way out of Peru and I will stay there if I ever go back to Peru.

The only negative is that there is not enough insulation between the rooms and hall and you may hear noise in the morning (nothing at night). Breakfast is free and is so is wireless.

It was a lovely modern and new hotel, and our room was lovely. Judith at the front desk was really helpful and friendly - greeting us by name everytime we walked in. Breakfast was great too - no bain maries - it was cooked fresh for you every time.

This is not your typical B&B with flounces, frills and flourishes. It's clean, stylish and contemporary. (There's original art on the walls.) Plus it's in the Barranco district of Lima which is vastly more interesting than bland neighbouring Miraflores. The best thing about 3B, though, is its staff who are friendly, welcoming and helpful. All in all, a refreshing change from what you are usually offered in this price-bracket.

Modern and clean. A little noisy as the sound travels between floors. Staff were excellent. Hotel offers a driver service. Our driver seemed asleep or drunk or something, but we got to the hotel safe and sound. Breakfast was included in the rate. Close to a really efficient bus service into Lima. Also close to some of the best Ceviche in Peru...
