Anchored by its historic center, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, Lima is a lovely place to explore for a night or two before venturing on to Peru’s main attractions. The city has been gentrified and is home to colorful architecture and some cool shops and cafés.


We only feature hotels that we can vouch for first-hand. With Indagare Plus,members receive special amenities.

Interiors at Hotel B, Lima, Peru

Hotel B

A grand Belle Epoque mansion that was built in the 1920s as a summer retreat for a wealthy Peruvian family has been transformed into one of Lima’s most stylish boutique hotels. Hotel B, part of the Relais & Chateaux collection, is located in the heart of the city’s arts district, Barranco, and merges the flamboyant architectural details of the original building (an ornate façade, carved columns, high ceilings, Italian marble) with a multi-million-dollar collection of contemporary art for a fabulous blend of old and new that is decidedly Peruvian. The family behind the restoration owns many of the country’s top lodges (Inkaterra Pueblo among them) so they are familiar with the desires of high-end travelers and every amenity such as Wifi, towel warmers and iPod docking stations have been worked into the seventeen suites. But they have also hired an art concierge to host artists’ talks and make introductions or arrange studio visits. While there is no gym or spa, there are stationary bikes for guest use. Celebrated Peruvian chef, Oscar Velarde, of La Gloria and Ciccolini masterminded the menu to highlight national specialties and regional bounty. The public rooms, from the restaurant and bar to the library and salon, have a deeply personal design aesthetic so they feel like rooms in a stylish friend’s residence, which creates the special house-party atmosphere. Some rooms are in the historic building and only accessible by stairs, while others in a contemporary wing can be reached by elevator, so it’s best to discuss your needs with our bookings team to reserve the right one for you.
