6 Best Hotels in San Isidro, Lima

Country Club Lima Hotel

$$$ | Cl. Los Eucaliptos 590, San Isidro, 27, Peru

Historic paintings from the Museo Pedro de Osma hang in the lobby and in each stately room of this colonial-style hotel, which is itself a work of art. Just follow the red carpet up the steps into the lobby, where hand-painted tiles reflect the yellows and greens of the stained-glass ceiling. The air of refinement continues in the spacious rooms, with their high ceilings, parquet floors, marble-top desks, and beds draped with fine fabrics and piled with pillows. Some rooms have private balconies that overlook the small, oval-shaped pool or the grounds of the adjacent Club Real. Locals come for high tea (Tuesday to Friday from 5:30 to 8:30) in the stained-glass atrium bar, traditional Peruvian fare in the elegant Perroquet restaurant, or a pisco sour in the adjacent pub.

Pros

  • Architectural gem
  • Doting service
  • Excellent restaurant

Cons

  • A bit removed from the action
  • New wing is less charming
  • Pricey
