Originally built in the style of the Belle Epoque, this chic mansion served as a seaside retreat during the presidency of Augusto Leguia in the 1920s.
Its architectural features and flair make this hotel one of the most attractive properties in Lima. Boasting wonderful views of the sea plus a private courtyard, this hotel is a beautiful place to begin, or indeed end, a holiday to Peru. The rooms of Hotel B feature a king or queen size bed that can be split into two twins, a sitting area with plush couch, writing desk and chair, cocktail table, vintage armoires and cabinets. Each walk-through white marble and glass bathroom includes twin vanity basins, a separate WC and powerful rain shower.
Complimentary amenities include high-speed wireless and wired Internet connection, local phone calls, a minibar stocked with local and international flavours, plasma TV with HD channels, iPod docking station and our favourite ‘El Huerto de mi Amada’ fig & herb shampoo, conditioner and body wash, chosen for its naturally aromatic scent as well as to honour the mansion’s original fig tree. The restaurant, bar and lounge of Hotel B have been designed to complement Lima’s excellent restaurants; a place for traditional service and excellent Peruvian cuisine in a light informal presentation. The menu is a fusion of traditional Peruvian ingredients and Mediterranean flavours cooked using traditional techniques, which will delight guests. The a la carte breakfast offering is particularly outstanding.
For an elegant stay in one of Lima’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, look no further than Hotel B Barranco.
