Hotel B, scheduled to open in June 2013, is located on the corner of Boulevard Saenz Peña and San Martin in the heart of Lima’s bohemian art district. The very first luxury boutique hotel in Lima sits on the flank of one of Barranco’s main plazas and is surrounded by art galleries, fashion boutiques, and other historical sites.
Hotel B features 17 elegant, unique suites, a signature restaurant featuring Peruvian-Mediterranean flavors, library & outdoor patio, and a rooftop lounge with spectacular views of the surrounding areas as well as the Pacific Ocean. Every room is equipped with air conditioning, I-pod-ready stereo and high-speed WiFi, custom organic bath amenities, and comfy and luxurious pillows, sheets, and towels to enhance that ultra-pampered feel. Each afternoon, the hotel offers guests the opportunity to enjoy El Lonche, or Peruvian Tea Time, featuring fresh fruits and typical Lima biscuits, open sandwiches, as well as coffee and herbal infusions.
This exquisite hotel aims to cater to a variety of clientele, from guests looking for a luxurious Lima experience as well as artistically-keen explorers interested in immersing themselves in Barranco’s art and culture scenes.
The original house was designed by the French architect Claude Sahut, who was also commissioned to design Lima’s Presidential Palace and several theaters and gardens around the city. Each common area and guest quarter reveals a mix of contemporary art and ancient Peruvian sculptures, paintings and antiques, all of which are original works sourced from private collections and galleries.
