“Little gem”
Reviewed 13 June 2008

I thought this wa s great little place and good value.

From the outside it looks like an old spanish Villa. And inside the courtyard is a nice haven away from the city.

The rooms were a little outdated but they were clean and pleasant. Our room looked the same as one of the photos posted. Some of the other posts complained about noise but we didn't find it noisy at all.

The location is great. Its easy to walk to the beach area and Miraflores shops and restaurants. There are a lot of amenties close by - within a block or so is a supermarket, a laundry, courier service, a restaurant and stores.

The staff at from desk were helpful - they promptly called cabs, booked tours and exchanged money.

Breakfast was standard for Peru - tea, coffee, juice and bread with jam. we didn't eat any other meals there but the restaurant area was lovely.

The school I was attending in Cusco booked me for an overnight in Lima. The hotel they usually use was full, so the travel agency booked me here. I got in very early in the morning and was told that there were no rooms available inside. I ended up in an outside room. The hotel appears to be an old mansion that was remodeled. What looks like the old gargages are outside with one on both sides of the main entrance. I ended up in the one on the right side.

The room was okay and the staff was nice, but the noise was awful. The taxis line up in front of the hotel during the night and wait to be called for a fare. So there were cars coming and going all night. Car doors slamming. People talking right outside my door. It was my first night in Peru and I was alone in the room, so I didn't like it at all.

If I had been inside I might have liked the hotel. I recommend against the outside rooms.

  • Liked — Good location for visiting Miraflores.

Noisy - only because the walls were thin...not because of bad guests - you could hear doors slamming and people clunking their suitcases on the stairs. Other than that, it was a nice place to stay and the staff were friendly and polite. I loved sitting in the courtyard relaxing. I would stay there again, but would bring my earplugs :)

Stayed at the La Castellana in Dec 2007.The room was especially noisy because of building works next door.They work from 7am til 6pm and it looks like it will be happening for some time yet.The room smelled of something like chemicals,maybe carpet cleaner or insect repellent.We had cold water for a shower the first day and the next when we wanted a shower there was no water at all??When we told them there was no comment at all and no apology.

This hotel was recommended by a relative,from a visit within the past 12 months.
However, our experience this month was less than satisfactory.Our first offered room was too noisy,so we were allowed to move.The quiet room had no hot water in the sink in the bathroom and no heat in the room at all.The windows and doors did not fit, so could not be properly closed.The room and bathroom were dirty.Thestaff,particularly in the breakfast room,were not interested in service at all.

The Hotel La Castellana is well-located in the Miraflores section of Lima. The hotel itself is beautiful, a colonial hacienda built around a courtyard garden with floors paved in Spanish tiles. My room ($48 a night), however, was motel-shabby with lumpy carpeting, a thin blanket and thin bedspread on the bed, cold tile floor in bathroom with two little rubber mats and two windows so old they couldn't be closed. Lima at this time of year (July) is cold, gray and drizzly. My room was freezing! There was a hair blower in the bathroom that did not work, two wires sticking out were taped over. From my room I could hear everything going on in the lobby & kitchen. People walking down the tiled hallways with their luggage sounded like they were in a bowling alley. Although the staff was very nice and helpful, I can't recommend the Castellana.
