We spent one night at the Royal Inca Hotel. We arranged for a transfer from the Lima Airport to the hotel, hotel driver was there to pick us up. Jose from Royal Inca drove us the next day to the main bus terminal at Plaza Norte where we caught our bus to Huaraz. We arranged for Jose to pick us up again when we returned from Huaraz, true to his word he picked us up despite our bus being two hours late. Jose drove us to our Airbnb in La Molina. Lastly we arranged with Jose a return trip from La Molina back to the airport, again no issues, all prices were fair. Hotel was conveniently located and very clean. Royal Inca taxi service was very reliable. Would definitely recommend the hotel and the taxi service they provide. Taxi was large enough for four passengers and all our luggage.
The check in was easy. We got to our room on the 2nd floor. It was nice with decent sized beds. Most beds are small in Peru. The draw back to the room was the shower did not work decent. We had made a complaint with the front desk but nothing changed until my husband removed the inner part of the shower head, then we could finally take a decent shower. There was a restaurant there with good food. Breakfast was included. We stayed here to get acclimated to the altitude rather than staying in Cusco.
Extortion - My flight was cancelled at 1am and I was stranded in Lima. It's too late to reserve via Booking.com at a guaranteed price so I called the hotel. The front desk man speaks perfect english and understood my dilemma, he told me not to worry and come straight to the hotel. However, on arrival he informed me he would charge me higher than the advertised rate because I had no other options! Unbelievable!!!
We booked one night due to the 12hr gap between our connecting flight. The driver was at the airport with our name up and quick to spot. Which was relieving as Jorje Chavez airport can be quite chaotic. We arrived at night and the drive back to the hotel was quick at about 20 minutes. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly and the transfer for the next morning was easy to organise for $10 USD. This area of Lima was a touch intense and the hotel was a nice safe haven from stray dogs, crazy drivers and more.
I booked Royal Inca because I had a long flight connection, and they offer transfer from and to the airport. The hotel is clean, the staffs are really courteous, and Trustful. I recommend this hotel for sure.
Fantastic stay. Jose and Hilda are super-attentive and extremely service minded. Room very large, clean, and nice. Food delicious and authentic. Taxi services entirely available and dependable. Terrific choice and I am definitely planning to come back.
We booked a night at Royal Inca Hotel because we had a 5 am flight out the next morning and didn't want to spend much on what would necessarily be a limited amount of sleep. The hotel was promptly responsive to our requests via email and cleaner and more secure than I had feared, and the shower had excellent water pressure. They did overcharge for the transport to the airport (30 soles for a short drive when we'd paid 20 to go from miraflores to the historic Lima district) but it was early in the morning so not a big deal. They also told me I would need to leave three hours in advance to make my flight which was a gross overestimate, especially for a hotel whose primary selling point is proximity to the airport; we left two hours in advance and it was fine. My biggest issue with royal inca was one perhaps beyond its control, but I only got an hour of sleep because there is very little sound insulation and the street noise was quite loud. It was a Saturday night and around one AM a nightclub started blasting music at such volume that it was impossible to sleep, which was really the only thing I wanted from Royal Inca. Still, if you're on a budget and need accommodations close to the airport for an early flight out it does the job.
The Royal Inca Hotel worked well for us logistically. It was our first time in Lima, and our flight arrived very late, so we wanted to stay somewhere close to the airport that offered airport pickup so that we wouldn't have to worry about that while trying to get our bearings. The driver was waiting for us at the airport so that worked out great. The hotel itself looks like it hasn't been updated in some time, and the neighborhood location is not nice. Interior decorations of the common areas were a little dystopian and seemed incomplete. The room was functional but we were less than happy with the cleanliness of the bathroom. The wifi worked fine. The free breakfast was actually quite nice. The staff was very friendly. I don't recommend their airport return service for $10 USD that is more expensive than just taking a cab. Road noise was medium. Now that I'm familiar with Lima I would just go all the way to Miraflores the first night and skip staying here, but it's not a horrible option by any means.
The hotel is good for budget travellers. It's located close to the airport. We stayed there between our 8-hour bus ride from Huaraz and our 24-hour trip back to the US. The only complaint: there was no hot water which we would have appreciated to before our long flight.
Shamefully, I don't submit reviews as often as I should. It is a year since my 15 year old, and 17 year old and I stayed here. In Lima you have to be very careful at the airport, where many agents, aka touts, wait at arrivals to attempt to influence (harass) you to take their unofficial taxis and take you to hotels other than the ones you have booked, "your hotel burnt down last night etc." The Royal Inca is 1Omins away by taxi, Lima can be an hour or more with the Lima traffic. Naomi from the Royal Inca was there when we arrived from Cusco at 8pm as arranged, with a sign with our names on, the following morning she was up at 4 at 5 to get the taxi for our early morning departure. There was nothing wrong with the room we had. This is a hotel for easy access tio the airport, at a reaonable price. This hotel is on a main road, and we didn't have any reason to go out, so I can't really comment on the safety of the surroundings. Royal inca has a restaurant, nothing special, but fills the gap. Summarizing, this hotel was great for access to the airport, there is an alternative, you can stay at the hotel on the airport for $250-300 per night, or stay downtown with the stress of getting to the airport early in the morning..
