New to Five Star Alliance: Hotel B Lima


By: Five Star Alliance

Originally built in the style of the Belle Epoque, the mansion that is the Hotel B Lima served as a seaside retreat during the presidency of Augusto Leguia in the 1920's. Its architectural features and flair capture the celebratory spirit of Peru's centennial, which permeated life in the capital city throughout the era of its construction. Famed French architect Claude Sahut, lauded for his work remodeling portions of the Government Palace, along with many of Lima's main avenues, parks, theaters, and other public buildings and spaces, was originally commissioned to design the property as a summer retreat for the Garcia Bedoya family.
