Barranco's chic seaside hideaway expanded into the neighbouring art gallery, adding 3 rooms and 2 common areas to its exclusive offering.
Walking into Lima Arts Hotel B’s newest wing, it is hard to tell that the building is no longer being utilized as an art gallery, save for the plump beds poised handsomely in the centres of the three new guest rooms. Dark wood floors flirt with clean lines and inspiring art. Heavy claw-footed tubs stand their ground against contemporary furnishings, merging antique inspiration with modern comfort and design. This is sexy speakeasy meets the Great Gatsby – one half-expects to turn a corner and see James Bond sipping a martini.
Large Victorian-style windows fill the rooms with natural light. Warm accents contribute to the aura of comfort and home that is present in abundance throughout the casona. From the moment guests arrive and receive their welcome glass of champagne, they are made to feel at ease in this genteel respite from the bustling streets outside. Strolling through the hotel, sophisticated parlour sofas beckon travellers to slow down, take another sip, and smell the roses.
The three new guest rooms bring the total count to just twenty, so plan on booking with ample advance notice. In addition to tasteful accommodations, the Mediterranean fusion restaurant and gin bar attracts flocks of well-heeled locals, making for a buzzing atmosphere that doubles as an outsider’s “in” to Lima’s sophisticated social scene. This is as good a spot as any to grab a drink and a slice of gourmet pizza, and get lost in the romantic swank of one of Lima’s most charming neighbourhood.
Speaking of charming neighbourhoods, Hotel B situates itself at the centre of the bohemian action. The hotel may be the most handsome house on the block, but it is certainly not the only colonial-style manor around. The entire area was once summer homes for Lima’s wealthy class; a summertime escape that has since been swallowed by the ever-expanding sprawl. The former residents of these elegant mansions have left, the leisurely pace and air of sophisticated summer vacation, however, has remained.
Hotel B was already one of Lima’s most enticing options in accommodations, and the Relais & Chateaux property has upped its game again. More rooms and more common spaces add to the hotel’s legacy founded on white-glove service, elegant style, and unbeatable location. Celebrated worldwide and locally beloved, Hotel B is a fabulous choice for discerning visitors to Lima.
