    The Gran Hotel Bolivar is a throwback to an era of Grand Hotels in "exotic" locations. The architecture and period decor are very interesting. The lobby and atrium are particularly evocative of a lost age of moneyed 1920's tourists. If you are an architecture and art deco buff, this place is certainly worth a look. However, please consider the negatives. This is a prime candidate for a takeover and multi-million dollar renovation by the Fairmont (or similar) corporation. But, then again, one would not be able to afford to stay there.

    Lima is an extremely noisy city with constant traffic (taxi) noise. All exterior rooms are supplied with a high volume "American in Paris (Lima)" soundtrack 24/7. The rooms are quite dated. The bedside tables have built in "antique - original decor" radios in various levels of working order. Paint is pealing and carpet threadbare; bathrooms in dated tile and antiquated plumbing (hopelessly mildewed grout). Our first few nights, in a fumigation scented room were bug free. Our second stay (on our way out of Peru) lacked the fumigation scent, but rewarded with six legged would-be stow-aways scurrying from our luggage in the morning. If you are adventurous and looking for a throwback to the past, this place is worth a stay. If you are interested in a contemporary "Grand Hotel," look elsewhere. If the bookings.com ratings allowed a "maybe" instead of "yes or no," that would be our recommendation. Instead, we select "no" for the average traveler.

    Location.

    This is an old hotel that seems to live on it's old glories. The facility is badly in need of an upgrading. Everything looks worn-out. In the room there is no air conditioning, the windows are the original from previous century. They provide zero sound protection from the very noisy streets. Carpets are totally worn-out. The long corridors with zero air circulation smell stale. This is a huge building with God knows how many guests and two elevators, one of which was out of order. The staff are totally unfriendly and uninterested serving or helping the guests. I would not recommend this establishment to anybody.

    Beautiful Hotel in the majestic style. Great location near many interesting and historic places. Big, well appointed bedroom. Clean. As good a pisco sour as I have ever had & the best Irish Coffee ever by a mile!

    Bed had no mattress. Slept on the mattress support. Hardest bed ever, as were the pillows. Floor, with rug, was softer. Would have moved, but no time. Dining room staff completely disorganized. Food arrived cold. Some very nice folks, especially the one old man (75+) working in the bar but the rest of the staff needs training. Worn out carpets in the halls. Big holes in them. Trip hazard! Water not potable and no place to buy bottled water. Not there, not nearby.

  • 10.0

    This hotel is a magnificent example of a iconic European hotel in it's design and style of service. At ninety plus years this property has aged well evident by seeing the daily routine. The staff is impeccable and the restaurants service high quality and local flavor selections are sumptuously satisfying

    Beautiful hotel. Excellent breakfast.

    The bathroom needs some refurbishing.

  • 7.0

    Not near to the center. It is the center. Original building

    I know they want to keep it original. But a little renovation is a must. At least a minibar and a safe in the rooms is needed

  • 8.2

    This hotel was formally the place to stay in Lima - Hemingway and various presidents and stars have stayed there. A great location on Plaza St Martin, It is now somewhat run down Room furnishing are original and the magnificent architecture more than make up for minor inconveniences. Sip a pisco sour on the balcony bar or watch the action in Plaza St Martin

    The plumbing and bathroom fittings could have been newer but they did work

  • 6.2

    Stayed in one of the suite so as to experience how luxury was back in the 60s before the hotel chains dominated the industry. Location was perfect for one to experience how majority of the people in Lima live.

    The noise from the main plaza. As night wore on, it all subsided and got a restful sleep.

  • 5.8

    The historic lobby and decor was beautiful. Price was very inexpensive.

    The room was a smoking room (stank, ashtray next to bed) and the bed was hard as a rock/very uncomfortable. The room overlooked the Main Street and was super noisy. I much preferred Miraflores or Barranca areas on previous visits. Food nearby was limited to fast food fried chicken. I think if we hadn't booked the cheapest option on Booked.net we might have had a better experience within the hotel.
