Overview

Hotel B is a tranquil and elegant boutique hotel located in the trendy Barranco district of Lima. It’s set in a mansion house dating back to the early 1900s, once the summer beachside retreat of a wealthy family. An extensive restoration project repurposed the mansion as a hotel and added a new three-storey annex. While the building has long been appreciated for its many architectural merits, today it’s also known as one of Lima’s most worthwhile boutique hotels.

Rooms are grouped into three categories: Atelier, Aposento and Alcoba. In total, there are 17 spacious, air-conditioned rooms; some offer views of the central courtyard, whilst others have street views. Common to all rooms are facilities such as complimentary toiletries, a hot water bottle, a plasma TV, a minibar and a vintage armoire. All bathrooms feature a rain shower, whilst some offer a separate bathtub as well. Rooms are decorated in a pleasant and stylish manner; those in the original mansion building are slightly more historic, whilst those in the newer contemporary wing are somewhat more modern in feel.

The hotel’s public areas comprise the library, with doors opening out on to the courtyard, and the living room, which is an ideal meeting point and the hotel’s largest room. There’s also an enclosed patio where guests can eat, a lounge with daily newspapers, coffee and snacks provided, and the Sundowner Deck, a private rooftop lounge, where guests can enjoy drinks and lighter meals whilst taking in views of the Pacific Ocean. Decorated in an old-world style, the Dining Room is the hotel’s main restaurant and is open throughout the day, serving both Peruvian and Mediterranean small dishes and daily afternoon tea.

Hotel B's location is ideal for exploring the vibrant district of Barranco, known for its abundance of art galleries, museums and theatres and a thriving arts scene. Many musicians, artists and designers are attracted to its buzzing streets. Note that the hotel houses its own art collection and it’s also directly linked with the Lucia de la Puente Gallery which showcases a range of local, national and international artwork. The coast is just a short walk away, as are quite a few public parks.

Children of all ages are welcome. It’s recommended that families with children under 6 years of age book one of the downstairs rooms since the balconies in the upstairs rooms aren't particularly child friendly. Parents are reminded to keep children under adult supervision at all times.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
