“nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

This hotel has very professional and attentive staff. There is a staff member who is available in the morning to assist and suggest touring sites around the colonial area, providing maps, walking tours, and special events. Our room was large and clean, with comfortable beds. The American style buffet breakfast included scrambled eggs, beads, fruits, juices, and coffee and tea. Some of the staff speak great English, so if you ventured to Lima without much Spanish, the personnel at this hotel can communicate with you. This hotel is very close to the colonial center of town and is a good value.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the street have street noise, so if this bothers you greatly, ask for a quiet room...

We got a room next to the street which should be avoided under any circumstances. The noise is incredible. But this is the only negative thing.
The room was clean, bathroom and breakfast ok.
Free Wi-Fi is offered as well.

This was our first time in Peru, and we did not speak any Spanish. We did not have much time to plan, either. Naturally, there were a lot of things we were worried about, but everything from start to finish was perfect & we felt that the staff really took a good care of us. E-mail communications were prompt & smooth. Booking of our room & transportation services from & to the Lima airport was flawless: no issue with the price & driver showed up on time as promised both times. Room was a bit on a small side, but it was clean & we didn't spend too much in the room anyway since there was plenty to explore, especially since the location was so close to the Plaza de Armas. There were pubs and restaurants and all kinds of things around the area, & the neighborhood seemed a little rough & questionable when we first were driven through the area, but we felt reasonably safe walking around the area as long as we used basic common sense. Didn't hear too much noise from our room, either. Wi-fi worked just fine. We thought breakfast was pretty good/filling as well. There was a bit of a language barrier with a couple staff members, but we found that this was a consistent thing throughout our travel in Peru (we traveled to Ollantaytambo, Cusco, & Machu Picchu). For the price, Hotel Continental Lima exceeded our expectations, and we would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is located at the central lima. Price is v reasonable comparing with Miraflores district hotel. Room condition and wifi signal are good. Breakfast have few choices, bakery, hams and fruit only. Coffee is not good, v bitter. Green Taxi fee from Lima airport to this hotel is 50 sol. The location is very good, you can go the two major plazas by walk and supermarket is easy to reach by 5mins walk.

From some other website to take advantage of discounts, otherwise, moderately priced. The hotel itself is in a good location and quiet if you get a room off the street. I am not sure how noisey street rooms are, but I have stayed there two different times and got an interior room, with window, off the street, and I liked it both times. The staff is very friendly and helpful and some English is spoken if your Spanish is not up to par. The rooms are very clean, and staff is always there to help if you need anything for the room or have a complaint. The included breakfast is good for Peru/most hotels have the minimum I have stayed at in Peru (if anything) and enough to eat. And being centrally located, there is enough tourist stuff to connect to, and the Metropalitano rapid ride bus station is about two blocks away if you want to go to Miraflores/Barranco or points in between. I will stay there again next year when I return to Lima. Over the years I have looked at and stayed in many hotels in Lima and surrounding area.

Room Tip: It is best to get a room on upper floors if the room is on the street side of the hotel. The streets...

The Hotel Continental was clean and tidy. As a single female travelling alone the hotel staff were very helpful in telling me what to do and what not to do. Michal Palomino Alvarado from customer service was brilliant. I booked a boat trip to the islands and he even took me to the Port in a taxi and met me off the boat (which was an hour late) and returned me to the hotel. I would recommend the hotel but unfortunately not the area to stay in for a single western female.
