“Underrated!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

We have now soon travelled around the world, and to call this an average hotel is underrated. Yes, it is definately not a five star hotel, but the staff is excellent, they speak english, and the location is top notch! Could not ask for more, even in one of the safest neighbourhoods in Lima, Miraflores. Wifi not the best, but does the job. Stay away from room 6 as the parrot outside the window sounds like a woman been murdered:)

Good location in Lima.Generally the hotel was perfect. I had a lovely big room but understand from friends that their's weren't so spacious. The breakfast selection could be better - maybe add some fresh fruit and the waiter needs to be friendlier.

We checked into this hotel to start our tour of Cusco and we could not be happier it was only 42 AUD a night the staff were fantastic and we had a weeks worth of washing to do and there was a laundry right of the corner about 10 meters away.

The room and hotel was very clean with fans in every room and the rooms are well ventilated.

The beds are comfortable and pillows are fantastic it is very very quaint and quite hotel with a breathtaking court yard to relax and read a book or have a cerveza, it has all you want in a hotel, Wifi was ok with top floor being the best and the location.
It is close to the main area of Miraflores.

For the price i cannot complain rooms are a good size and showers have nice pressure, everything that is important here, they do very well.

The breakfast is limited to bread rolls, butter, jam and good coffee.

The staff speak English and are helpful.

If you are on a medium budget I highly recommend this hotel.

For other reviewers you have to remember this building is very old and well maintained so if the wardrobe is musky it's because there rarely used in regards to internet Lima has very poor internet services this hotel had the best connection and speed we had experienced in Lima and sacred valley.

One negative the rooms do have very poor lighting.

Room Tip: There are no lifts so if you do not like stairs ask for lower levels

We stayed here as part of a tour, so not sure if this would be considered value for money by any measure... In any case, smell in the room was bad, echo from all other rooms, toilet flushed weird, etc. However, staff is nice and location is great, so if that if that is what u need, it is ok.

In short, we were placed here as a tour, and we would definitely not come back ourselves.

Stayed here as part of a G Adventure tour group, for 2 nights total book ending the Inca Trail.

The rooms are musky, especially closet, not well lit. The wifi is spotty. One of our rooms had no signal in room, (you have to walk out in to lobby), and even when you can connect to router, you often can't get to internet. One night's room toilet drips too.

Had a disturbing episode with house keeping who tried to barge into our room at 1010am, despite that 1) check out is 12 midday, 2) DND sign is on, 3) we said (in English) we are still in the room. Did not feel terribly safe in the hotel.

Location is not bad, but there are plenty more hotels in the immediate vicinity to try.

Also, remember to bring your own shampoo.

I am glad they can survive as a tour agency hotel. But if avoid if you possibly can.

I have used this hotel many times over the years when I take my groups to Lima Peru..
It has a great old fashion and a wonderful courtyard for relaxing.
The rooms are all very different so you might like some and not like some others.
The staff is helpful and friendly, most speak enough English.
The location is perfect and safe.. easy walking to shopping and restaurants in the Miraflores district of Lima.
As with most older hotels, no elevator for the 3 floors.. no air or heat, but in Lima you don't need these features.
I will continue using this place.

Room Tip: A number of rooms have balconies.. which are my favorite.. But you are in a downtown section so thes...

We were at La Castellana as part of a tour, with a total of 3 nights bookending our trip.

The hotel is good for location and is sufficiently comfortable and clean.
If you're the type that walks most places, it puts you within minutes of a couple grocery stores, Miraflores, Parque Kennedy and lots of restaurant options, so that's a major plus for me.
The bed was firm, not terribly comfortable but still enough to sleep well. The room had a good amount of space. There was a mini fridge, safe, and closet. Bathroom was clean.

Courtyard was a nice place to meet for lunch or to gather up before heading out again.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a simple accommodation, or who is just in need of a well-located spot for a quick visit to Lima.
