Hi guys, arriving in Lima at 1030pm on the 6th of may. Can anyone recommend a good hotel with airport pickup?

Not too expensive, but don't mind paying a bit more for the first few weeks until we get our bearings.

meeting my gf there, our flights arrive 20mins apart, she is american, will have been apart 6months by then :( damn american visa requirements!!

Thanks

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

It was a year or two back, but I stayed at a place called The Point Hostel. This is the only link I could find for it: http://www.hostelz.com/hostel/1524-The-Point-Backpackers-Hostel, but I think I was actually able to book it using the tools feature here at TP.

I arrived at roughly the same time as you, scheduled a pick-up through the Point and was drinking my first beer at the hostel by 11:30 pm before the whole hostel bar went out to the bars en masse.

It was a bit of a party place, so if that's not your thing, it might not be for you. A little nosy, etc.

Most people will tell you to head to Miraflores, which indeed is nice. I do think some of the hostels over there will arrange airport pick-up as well.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply, might try to find somewhere a bit quieter though. At least until the jetlag wears off.

Hi Andy,
just use the Accommodation link here at the left side,it is very easy to find what you are looking for.
Miraflores is in Lima the best place to stay,a lot of hostals,not all of them in the loud aerea.
Almost every hostal offers pick up service from the airport to Miraflores $ 10-12 take it,because it is safe.
In case you would miss your pick up,go to the taxi/bus desk inside
the airport,on the right side at the exit door and let the girls there organize a safe taxi.Also $10-12 to Miraflores.the person will hold a board with your name so you are sure that you get a safe trip to the hostal.
Enjoy Miraflores,
Marlis

forgott something.
2 years ago I was at the hotel "El Ducado"in Lima.
It is close to the larco mar center(many restaurants,cinemas) where you can easy walk and overlook the sea .
Quiet street with small local restaurants.
the El Ducado is a smaller newer hotel,will cost about $20-25 pp.incl.breakfast.
taxi to the center of Miraflores about $3-4

Some good 3 stars hotels are El Carmel and Hoteles Mundo, should be around usd35 and 45. And if you can still afford a little more, there's a great place called Posada del Inca in San Isidro.
