Inside this colonial style hotel you will find that the wooden roofs, sparkling chandeliers and historical Peruvian decor offers a quality ambiance that makes you stop and take in your first look of this country's vast culture.

After finishing a day of business, make your way to the historical and cultural center of Lima and admire the majestic palaces and cathedrals. Don't forget to order a Pisco Sour (or 2) at one of the relinquished bars or exquisite restaurants and then stop to rest in the beautiful plazas. When you have finished your work and play, remember Thunderbird Hotels Carrera will be waiting for you.

Note: The 18% national sales tax is charged upon check-out to all Peruvian citizens and foreigners staying 60 consecutive days or more. Non- resident travelers are exempted of this tax upon presentation of passport and Migration Card (given by Peruvian Immigration at airport) at check-in.

Good value, far from things

Hotel look and facilities are average. Restaurants is basic but good. Staff is nice and helpful. It's in the Lince neighborhood, with nothing to do around it. The historical center or the Miraflores waterfront neighborhood are both opposite taxi rides away. It was ok, but I'd stay elsewhere next time. I wish there was one more option regarding whether to recommend or not the hotel. I would, with reservations. In having to choose between yes and no, then I'd go for yes. Hotel isn't bad, if you know the above.

good value for the money

Location is not ideal. In between the old town and Miraflores, requiring a taxi ride to both. Hotel is ordinary, but clean and staff is nice and attentive and good value for the money.

Needs urgent renovation

The location of this hotel is not good, nothing around to do or to go and very far from the Centro historico. In addition, the hotel is so old and uncomfortable. When I arrived my room had a strong smell of humidity and it was cold and very noisy.

Extra days in Lima

The Carrera is in an OK neighborhood about halfway between downtown Lima and Miraflores areas. It is right on a busy street (Arenales) so there is some traffic noise. The rooms were older, but they were clean. It worked well for me since I was just looking for a cheap place to sleep for an extra couple of days (on my own nickel) after a business trip.

Really enjoyed it

I had a very good experience at the hotel, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was good. The only downside is location, if you had to go downtown. It's to get there, because the hotel has a car that take you, but many tax drivers don't want to drive you back to Lince (the neighborhood where the hotel is located).

Will not stay again

I have stayed at other 3 star hotels before but this one was not even close to the quality. The room was smelly and dirty. The front desk durning check in was not even helpful. The old man at the front refused upgrade to suit to one bed when he realized that it was for two guys. The buffet breakfast was not even worth getting up for. The food selection was limited. I just had coffee. The wait staff was very slow and not helpful. Overall, I was very disappointed. The pictures on the website did not match the hotel. I was expecting one thing and got another. Will not recommend and will not return!

Good hotel on the way to Machu Picchu

Very comfortable hotel. It is about 3 miles/5 KM away from the main attraction of Miraflores and Larcomar. It cost about 8 soles to get from the hotel to these areas. You are also about the same distance to Downtown Lima going the opposite way. If you like the Casino life there is one in the hotel and one on the hotel accross. Breakfast was good. Coffee was the best coffee in town. I will recommend this hotel to the traveler who will like to save. The Inka and Indio Markets are a great place to shop right before you get to the Ovalo of Miraflores between Arequipa and Petit Thouars Avenues. The Magic Circuit of the Water or Parques de Las Aguas is about a mile up from the hotel, it is a great place to see at night time. Right after that is the Estadio Nacional where we saw Peru beat Paraguay 2-0 in the 2014 Brazil Qualifier. Great town. Hotel is very helpful but do not have too much information on the surroundings.

An Enjoyable Visit

The hotel is a comfortable, well kept property. The staff are helpful and friendly. I don't speak much Spanish and everyone was patient when speaking to me in Spanish and the front desk staff were fluent in English. The location was central to different attractions in the Lima area and was good for our purposes. It was a lower priced area than the bigger tourist area of Miraflores which is not far away.

I didn't know there were casinos in the area, so if you like to play the games you'll enjoy.
