The streets are lined with galleries, with Mario Testino’s being one of the most well-known. But local art isn’t limited to photography and fashion — check out some of the city’s stylish platings at one the upscale restaurants that’s just a short walk or cab ride from your hotel. For a self-guided tour of the area, consider taking one of the hotel’s bikes for a spin. On a city tour, you’ll learn about the history of the area and see beautiful landmarks like Puente de los Suspiros — the Bridge of Sighs — and see interesting colonial artifacts at Lima’s oldest museum, the Museo Pedro de Osma.
The casa is named after its Republican-era architecture, which lends a stateliness to its exterior. Although the rooms have an old-fashioned, 1920s feel, they offer modern conveniences like heating and air conditioning. You’ll also have a flat screen TV and Wi-Fi, and each room comes with a private bathroom.
You can have a sip and get a convenient meal at the hotel’s bar and restaurant. Help yourself to the lovely breakfast that’s included in your stay. There’s convenient 24-hour room service. Guests can also take advantage of the on-site laundry facilities and the rooms’ safety deposit boxes.
