After reading the reviews and looking at the pictures, I was looking forward to a pleasant stay. That wasn't the case.
The garden is quite nice and the pool is quite small but that wasn't an issue since I wasn't planning to use it. The room was the disappointment. We had room 106 and the first impression was not good. Very small and that would have been alright if it wasn't for other things. Like the mold and the musty smell. My wife could not sleep due to the smell and you have to wonder what kind of mold is in the room.
Obvious what is causing the mold. The shower door does not close tightly so water leaks on to the floor. So tried adjusting the shower head and that doesn't move so wound up with a wet bathroom floor that was yucky to walk on all night even after our best efforts to dry it. The second cause is that water seems to enter from under the front door and not sure what is causing this. Anyways, continual dampness leads to mold and it looks like it is feeding off of some of the drywall.
The bed was worn out and gave me a sore back by morning. The pillow is like a pancake so maybe that helped with the sore back. And the bedding was comprised of one sheet and no blanket - so hope for warm weather lol.
I saw on their website that they boast of multilingual staff - a couple are reasonably fluent in English but others were not and this made for a bit of a challenge.
Maybe one of the rooms on the second floor would have been better and I was totally disappointed and glad that we chose to only spend one extra night in Lima and the extra two in Quito. The room in Quito looks like the pictures.
