This was by far the worst experience at any hotel. The staff was beyond rude and unprofessional. The hotel was kind of old and outdated. The pictures posted in their site don't match with the actual rooms as someone else mentioned in the reviews already. They may have one or two rooms renovated but not all the rooms. Breakfast was...

Thanks for writing to us. We are very sorry for what happened, we apologize for the misunderstandings. The electrical company performed maintenance on public lines; but, the guests did have water and the elevators also worked. It was a wrong communication from us. We are very sorry.

Room was exceptionally clean and cleaners extremely nice, especially as we went to a wedding and there was confetti in the room and over the floors. Staff were always helpful and the doorman who opened the doors were always smiling. The restaurants were really good and the staff always helpful with everywhere clean and plenty of choice of food.

I absolutely recommend the Hotel Continental. I give a 10 as excellent to this hotel. I have high expectations, and I am not a person that gives an "excellent" rate very easily. However, this hotel was perfect in all the aspects. First the people that work at the hotel are very professional, kind, polite and very helpful. I am referring...

Very confortable and clean. We appreciate the room and the view. The breakfast was delicious and complete. All the food was fresh, maybe the buffet must have more fruits. When we arrived the people was very friendly. The parking of the hotel allowed us to travel around the city very easily.

Lima, Peru
Reviewed 26 December 2016

Enjoyed the breakfast buffet very much. Be ready to eat because there is a lot for hungry people. Very near the Malecon, Church, and park with lots of Iguana's roaming around wanting to be fed. The room is comfortable but the walls are thin and you can hear others too easily.

Thank you for your feedback.

Great location and breakfast. Small triple room. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. No need to rent the shuttle. There's no shuttle. They send someone from the hotel with a cab. We had too many suitcases and had to get another cab which was half the price. Only $5 versus $10 per hotel.

Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers. We are very pleased by the treatment received from our staff. About the taxi fare, we charge $ 10 because the bell boy picks them up at the airport and then brings you to the Hotel, $ 5 + $ 5 = 10. We hope you can visit us again soon.
