Recent guest reviews

nice staff, very good food , very clean room every day

this was supposed to be an airport hotel, it turned out to be about 45 minutes from the airport and was definitely not worth the drive. hotel was old and tired and had no attempts to make it comfortable. an absence of any personal touches and the location was traffic noisy.

Great experience. The staff were very helpful and the room was good value, with an ensuite and full bathroom. It was a bit 80's in style tine room but the actual hotel has a nice wooden interior. There is a casino outside which was noisy but muffled by the ac. Check out the water park and Chinese restaurant nearby for cheap entertainment .

nice experience great service the personell has great attention and the restaurante great food!

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.

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.

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.

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).

Very good hotel.. I really like it..

I was greeted by staff which helped me get online and direct me to local places. The only complaint I have about Thunderbird Hotels Carrera is that their rooms were freezing cold. But, as with other classy hotels, they provided me with an electric heater, which warmed things up.

This should be called a retro hotel. Its furnishings appear to be from the early 1960's which adds to its character. This hotel was clean and comfortable and offered excellent front desk service. It is not close to the aiport as advertised on orbitz but it was less than 30 minutes without traffic, about 45 during rush hour. A good value if you are just passing through Lima and want a clean room at a good price.

The hotel was advertised as being close to the airport-it is not.

My friends and I had a great experience at the hotel. Besides having a Casino in the first level, the staff was very friendly and spoke English fluently. Also, the location of the hotel is great. It's close to Miraflores and Downtown Lima and other turist attractions. Overall a very nice and clean hotel. We're definetely going back to this hotel next time we're in Lima.
