The hotel has a good, comfy, lobby and comfortable rooms... specially on 3rd floor that they have a little terrance. The hotel needs more so it could be better. The location is a plus, you can walk around Lince (district in which it is located in Lima). I was here due to a congress, good business stay hotel.

We stayed at the Thunderbird Hotels Carrera for a week with 3 people. The hotel is in middle class neighborhood, with grocery stores and many restaurants close by. We felt safe, even after dark. The room was a bit dated and cramped but clean. We had a refrigerator in our room. The staff was very friendly, but if you don't...

We spent 1 night here for a layover. Staff are friendly, and rooms very clean and quite spacious, with air conditioning, nice showers with hot water. Although a bit dated, but that didn't bother us. The food at the restaurant was really good. Overall pretty good value, and probably better for a layover in Lima rather than an extended stay.

I booked a KingBed Room for one night through AA.com to get the proper mileage for frequent travelers. In the AA.com web site, it appears that the distance from the airport to the hotel is 1.88 miles, but in reality is 18.8 miles, which created a big problem for me, but I managed to deal with that. I should have...

Arrived at 2a.m. Got room on 7th floor. Elevator worked. A/C did not work. Opening windows allowed major traffic noise. Room was clean but spartan. Appearance is of 1950s motel never repaired. Area was dangerous and staff was insistant that we not go outside. We needed water and very nice staff went out and got it for us (room service)....

We arrived at our hotel at night, the neighborhood isn't as affluent, I would not suggest walking around at night. However, when you arrive at the lobby of the hotel it is full of beauty. The ceilings are wood crafted and historical/religious paintings adorn the walls. My friend and I only stayed there one night, the standard rooms looked run...

The hotel is fine, small breakfast, rooms with amenities (TV, phone, a/c), minibar, friendly staff, but it is located in the Lince neighborhood, far away from Lima downtown (Miraflores and San Isidro neighborhood) and from the Historic Center. In the nights, the streets of Lince are a bit scary, so if you want to walk after dinner, forget it. Cabs...
