Hotel B in Lima
The coastal metropolis of Lima is the heart and soul of Peru and a great place to start exploring the country. Brimming with history and culture, there’s an abundance of things to see and do in Lima. This is also the culinary capital of South America. Local dishes that should be on your to-eat list include, ceviche, which is raw fish marinated in lime and raw onion, and lomo saltado, stir fried steak with onions, tomatoes, fries and rice.
Of course, if you’re planning on experiencing the delights of the Peruvian capital then you’re going to need a place to rest your weary legs at the end of the day. Hotel B is part of the Relais and Chateaux family and offers exquisite accommodation in the heart of the city. It's definitely one of the best hotels in Lima and popular with our travelers.
The stunning Hotel B is located in the Barranco district of Lima, an up-market area known for its trendy restaurants and bars. The hotel itself comprises an elegant white façade that dates back to the Belle Epoque (late 19th century and early 20th century). Its exterior exudes all the elegance of a regal summer pavilion and is just a few steps away from a protected area of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel perfectly incorporates a Latin twist into its distinct colonial style.
If the external beauty of Hotel B has enticed you, wait until you see what lies in store for guests within the hotel. The mansion boasts 17 rooms, each one draped with lavish fabrics in gentle, neutral colours and the enormous beds are surrounded by cream walls. The light colour scheme is offset by dark wooden furnishings and beams. On the walls of the rooms are pieces of art by local Peruvian artists. This is just one way the hotel combines Bohemian Peruvian culture with its period grandeur and elegance.
Hotel B is within easy reach of a number of great restaurants and it also has its own culinary offering in the form of an onsite restaurant. The chef here prepares mouth-watering meals to delight every taste and preference. Given the importance of gastronomy in Lima and prevalence of gourmet restaurants, there is a lot of pressure to perform in this industry. The food at Hotel B does more than just satisfy. It is crafted like art and then presented beautifully for the ultimate gourmet experience.
Within easy reach of the hotel are some of Lima’s most popular attractions, including El Puente de los Suspiros (the bridge of sighs); the Contemporary Art Museum and Mario Testinos Museum. It is also just a short distance from El Larcomar, a high-end shopping centre, built into the side of a cliff and overlooking the ocean. The Larcomar complex also has a bowling alley, pool tables and various restaurants.
In the evenings, guests can retire to the hotel for a peaceful evening in the library, decorated with antique maps and books. There is also a patio, where guests can relax whilst inhaling the gentle scent of jasmine and fig. If you are a lover of nature and beauty then this is a great place to pass a few hours. Alternatively, head up to the terrace and enjoy a cocktail or some tapas with friends.
Previous guests of the hotel have described it as the “best boutique hotel in Lima” and they are quite right. Completely unique and truly enchanting, this hotel is well worth spending a few nights in. The whole complex is air-conditioned and the hotel provides a WiFi connection for its guests, so you can stay connected during your stay.
Hotel B is a great place to base yourself whilst in Lima. It is perfectly located for spending the day walking around or indulging in some shopping but is away from the chaos so you can rest peacefully in the evenings. For more information about Hotel B, please contact us or call 1-888-215-3555.
