Don't stay here
Posted May 1, 2010
The staff seemed confused having guests arrive, and seemed unprepared for our arrival. They did not accept credit cards, cash only and were unprepared giving change, or helping find a destination within Lima or even get a taxi for us. They did not tell us what the charge for the Taxi to the airport was early next morning, but expected us to have exact change in cash ready. The room had stale air and was hot, though a fan was provided. The window opened to a stair case so it did not feel safe to leave it open. The metal bed stand was broken in several spots and was not stable, but held for our stay. We stayed in much better places in Lima for less than this one. we chose it only for it's (relative) proximity to the airport, however there is nothing in the area- no stores or restaurants - none at the hotel either. They recommended to us not to go out and walk around- yet it would have taken a minimum of 30 minutes for them to call a taxi. We ventured our anyway and got lucky with a cab. Won't stay there again- The taxi ride supplied by the hotel was adventurous to say the least- it sounded and felt like it would not make it- the car was in utter disrepair and unsafe.
