Fodor's Expert Review Hotel B

San Martín 301, at Av. Sáenz Peña, Lima, Lima, 04, Peru Fodor's Choice

Also known as Arts Boutique Hotel B, this boutique hotel-cum–art gallery in a refurbished, turn-of-the-century mansion in the heart of artsy Barranco is a feast for the senses with its impressive collection of works by up-and-coming Latin American artists, 1920s charm, rooftop deck, and impeccable service. Located next door to the Lucia de la Puente Gallery, the charm of this 17-room hotel is that you feel as if you're staying in the home of a wealthy art collector. Rooms in the main house are gorgeous, with high ceilings and hardwood floors; several "Atelier" suites have private balconies and porcelain bathtubs. Light sleepers, however, may prefer a room in the new annex, which is better insulated from street noise. Breakfast and complimentary afternoon tea are served in the biblioteca (library) and adjacent terrace. Locals and guests flock to the bar-restaurant at night to enjoy the selection of Peruvian and Mediterranean dishes.
