First let me say that our room was spectacular, made even better by the free upgrade from a matrimonial suite to an even better room ... and they even let us check in early! We received all that for a great price.
Maybe I should not complain because hotel front desk service is slow just about anywhere you go, nonetheless we did experience some slow and/or indifferent service at the front desk a few times during our one-night stay at Ginebra. And I will probably always be annoyed by (and ignore) the banquet of high-priced snacks that hotels stock their rooms with while hoping to gouge you should you get hungry or thirsty.
The neighborhood is not some place my wife felt comfortably hanging around, made worse by the representatives of at least 5 cevicherías in the area that hang out on the street and hound you incessantly to eat at their restaurante. Fortunately, it is a short 3 block walk to a very large mall, otherwise we would have been cooped-up in our room the whole time. We don't really like malls, however, so we went there only to eat at one of the restaurants and to get a few groceries at the grocery store (which is nice and conveniently located near the entrance to the mall).
Ginebra connected us a nice taxi service that arrived on time at the airport early in the morning to whisk us from the airport to the hotel, and then arrived on time very early the next morning to take us back to the airport.
So in summary, Ginebra works really well if you need plush accomodations at a great price for a night or two in Lima, especially if you need to be fairly close to the airport to catch a connecting flight. But I suspect that few of their guests stay more than a few days.
