“Perfect for an airport layover”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

I chose this hotel based on its proximity to the airport and was glad I did. The staff was available and helpful even with my 1AM check-in. The room was small, but the linens and bedding very crisp and comfortable. Bathroom was tiny, but had all the ammenities you need. Breakfast was decent and made to order. The friendly staff arranged a private car to the airport. It was like having a friend give you a ride. This hotel is perfect for a layover, but I'm not so sure about the surrounding area. Wouldn't want to stay there longer. That's not to say it's unsafe- it seemed residential. There wasn't much around.

In choosing this hotel I had been looking for something relatively close to the airport at a reasonable price. Bearing this in mind I got what I asked for and cannot complain. Clean and a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the airport. Can't speak to the breakfast as on both occasions we left before the official serving time and so were given breakfast bags with fruit juice and cookies.

My only 2 gripes:
1) Construction happening next door so I would advise occupying yourself elsewhere during the day
2) Though a wake up call was requested, we were not called

Note: While close to the airport, this hotel is NOT close to much else. If you are looking to stroll around for a decent restaurant, admire the neighborhood, or even take a trip to the market I would not recommend this location.

Stayed here overnight in transit to Cusco because it was close to the airport and the price was right - $50 as compared to the Airport Ramada for $250.

This hotel is clean, quie and convenient. The beds are comfortable, the towels of great fluffy absorbing Peruvian cotton and the shower has plenty of hot water. For the price, you really cannot go wrong.

Downside is that you will have to take a cab to a restaurant vs walking. However, if you want to walk and sight see, head to Miraflores and pay the price in terms of high rates and expensive taxi fare to the airport.

We passed by Lima on the way to Cusco and since we just needed a place to stay for one night (both ways) we decided to go with SM Hotel. It was a good decision because of the price of this hotel and the proximity to the airport. On our way back from Cusco though things went wrong: 1) we were given a room that was right next to the construction going on next door (i think they are planning to expand the hotel) but as soon as we complained they gave us another room, where we could still hear the construction but not as much. 2) We asked for a wake up call the next day but the phone never rang. Good thing I had also set my phone!

This hotel is good for the price and location to the airport but don't expect anymore than that.

Room Tip: There is massive construction going on in the hotel, it looks like they are expanding (We were there...

great location and service. I stayed two nights here, one on my way to cuzco and one on my way back to lima airport. On the second night coming from cuzco they forgot to pick us up at the airport. I was disappointed since we had already booked a pick up with them. Lady working at the front desk denied it and was in shocked when she checked and we were on the pick up notes for that day. No discount, just an apology. Also, in the morning I turned the pillow around and it had blood. Don't get me wrong service and location are great, these were two bad things that happen to us.

We stayed here for one full night and then a half night as we were departing Lima on a 5 am flight. Each night we had two rooms. We found the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel was close to the airport and was reasonably priced. When we asked where to eat the staff directed us to the Plaza San Miguel mall. Although not within walking distance it was very close to the hotel. It was a large modern mall with many places to eat such as Dunkin Donuts, Chiles, KFC, and McDonald's. They had some other cafes to eat in as well.It felt reasonably safe. There were lots of stores many of which are the same as in the US. The hotel provided an adequate breakfast and also provided a bag breakfast to take with us since we left early to catch our flight. Our rooms were fine with plenty of hot water for the shower. One of our rooms was not as nice as the other due to some minor maintenance issues, but was fine. There was some construction going on right next door to the hotel but if you are reading this I imagine they are probably done and the construction workers only worked from 7:30-5:30. There is an extra charge for bottled water, I would think you should get at least one bottle with the room. We felt this hotel was fine for our needs and would recommend it, especially considering it was close to the airport which gave us a little more sleep time before our early 5 am flight.

We stayed here for one night after a 9 p.m. arrival into Lima an an 8:00 a.m. flight to Cusco. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. We took a taxi from the airport and the same driver returned for us in the morning.
