A regal fixture in the San Isidro embassy district, the Country Club Lima Hotel claims distinction as Peru’s only hotel and national monument. With open wood-beam ceilings and 300 works of original art, guests step into a true South American palace. The Perroquet Restaurant serves up flavorful local dishes in a white-tablecloth dining room, and the glass-domed Los Vitrales café has more casual fare. The English Bar has a colonial, old-boys-club vibe with elegant mahogany and free-flowing pisco sours. After a tee time at the Lima Golf Club, you can retire to rooms outfitted with Jacuzzi tubs.
In the Area
As Peru’s capital and its largest metropolis, Lima encompasses plenty of South American culture and arts. Steps away in the prestigious San Isidro district—home to palaces and embassies—relax at the wide-open El Olivar Grove Park amid the olive trees. Peruvian artists shine at Galeria Indigo, presenting gold and silver work, paintings, ceramics and sculptures. Housed in a sprawling 18th-century mansion with lush gardens, the Larco Museum’s collection spans nearly 3,000 years of Peruvian history and includes a titillating erotic art exhibit. You can’t leave Lima without eating at one of Peruvian superstar chef Gaston Acurio’s restaurants. La Mar is his homage to ceviche.
How to Get There
We spent one night here. We were upgraded and had an enormous room on the ground floor. It was far enough away not to be disturbed by the bar or restaurant. I suggest you choose a room away from them, although I do not think they open that late.
Lots of hot water and free wifi.
The staff are very professional and helpful. They do speak English.
There is an excellent and extensive breakfast buffet. The restaurant was a little pricey for dinner but the food was very good.
The hotel is in a quiet, safe and stylish suburb of Lima. There is a lovely park and golf course nearby. Not so many restaurants or cafes nearby though. More in Miraflores, which is the next area.
We had a poor booking experience, but I'll chalk it up to language differences. Other than that, the hotel was beautiful, clean, and the service was great. We would certainly stay there again if we were to return!
When you first enter the Country Club LIma Hotel, you will be amazed by the gorgeous lobby. You will be so excited thinking that your room will be gorgeous as well. You will be wrong. The rooms smell very moldy and seem like they are well past their best. While the bed in our room was comfortable, everything else was pretty poor. I had to shut the shower off three times while showering as it would not drain properly and I was worried about it overflowing. The jacuzzi in our room had mold/dirt around the jets so we did not use it, there was a pubic hair on one of the towels, and our 'great room view' was of the street. Our room was located above the noisy hotel bar. The walls are paper thin so we were woken up by rude guests shouting in the hall at around 2am. On the balcony there was ash on the table and .....toenails on the balcony. Yep, you read that right. They tried to get me to pay $30 more for this room too! What a joke. We complained at the front desk about this experience and they did remove the $30 charge. I asked that the hotel cover our cab ride to our next hotel, which they did, but it took about 20 minutes for the manager to approve a $10 cab ride and he/she never came out to apologize. We stayed at the Belmond for the rest of our stay in Lima and it was an amazing, beautiful and clean hotel.
Hi!! Don’t stay here. I’d hate to not be able to get a room next time I visit. But seriously. They balcony off my bedroom could only hold 40 or so friends. The bar ingles, never seemed to close. It’s like, hello, I need to get SOME sleep tonight. Can’t hang out for the entire evening. So, don’t stay. I’m selfish
We stayed in this hotel for almost a week. Absolutely great service, clean and elegant room, first class security, nice location. Really enjoyed our meals in hotel restaurant, every night had drinks in hotel bar. Looking forward to stay again.
