Country Club Lima Hotel: The Best Hotels in Peru
Looking for a place to bunk down in Lima? Head to the hacienda-style Country Club Lima Hotel facing the golf course (hence the hotel's name) in the posh San Isidro district. Named to the Forbes Traveler 400 Best Hotels list, the Country Club Lima Hotel has surprisingly reasonable prices. With only 78 guest rooms-- all generously sized, filled with colonial artwork on loan from Museo Pedro de Osma, and equipped with contemporary technology-- the hotel has an intimate, cozy atmosphere. Customer reviews on Five Star Alliance point to the "personalized attention" and "old-world gracious service" as the winning factor for this hotel. But Forbes Traveler claims "its trump card is stunning architecture: The vintage 1927 mansion blends Spanish colonial icons like red-tile roofs and whitewashed walls with genuine antiques and artwork as well as European neoclassical touches like the stately glass-domed lobby." Honeymoon packages, including sparkling wine and a fruit basket in-room, buffet breakfast, and a late check-out, start at just $179 per night. Special offers for business travelers or families are also available.
