Gran Hotel Bolívar Review

Tastes may have changed since 1924, but this grande dame retains the grandeur of the days when guests included Ernest Hemingway. As you enter the marble-columned rotunda, your eyes are drawn upward to the magnificent stained-glass dome. Off to one side is the wood-paneled bar, which remains as popular as ever. The tables on the terrace are the perfect place to enjoy a pisco sour or a meal. The rooms are spacious, but some are a bit dog-eared. The hotel lacks some comforts and services, but the location is optimal, and the rates are quite reasonable. Be sure to pay the extra $10 for a suite in front for an unforgettable view of Plaza San Martín.
