Information sought on Holiday Inn, Lima Peru International Airport

Who has stayed at the Lima Airport Holiday Inn? How is it? Is it well maintained? How is the transfer from the airport? Is breakfast included for everyone?

I haven't stayed there, but driven past several times. Easy walk from the arrivals terminal across the parking lot and an avenue (use the pedestrian bridge). The area gets dodgy at night, so don't walk if you venture out beyond the hotel/airport.

Spent one night upon arrival to Lima. Beautiful hotel with friendly service. No worry! Safe and convenient at a reasonable price. I had earlier read not to try to attempt to walk to the hotel better to take their shuttle. I did not review this property on Tripadvisor, sorry, but write the hotel with your arrival info and they will tell you where to meet them even if around midnight.

I stayed here last month. I also would not walk to this hotel because it's across a busy road with no pedestrian crossing. I was told that there would be a bridge opening some time "after Christmas" so if that happens, it would make it walkable.

When I called the hotel, the information was not super clear and I found the shuttle by chance with the help of a friendly taxi driver. My understanding is that when you arrive at the airport, you have to go to the Taxi Direct counter (if arriving internationally, this is in the area where the hotel desks are, just after customs and before you exit into the main part of the terminal; if arriving domestically, it is just after baggage claim before you exit the terminal). The representatives will take you to the shuttle, which stops in a not-so-obvious spot just outside the terminal.

I don't remember for sure, but I don't think breakfast was included automatically. We left super early and grabbed something in the airport lounge.

I'm trying to track down an email for the hotel so that I can clarify the transfer from the airport to the hotel. Bora Kup appears to be the GM but I've had no success in finding his email either. Can anyone help?

My daughter lives in Cusco and so members of our family have stayed there several times, including the 4th night they were open Since travel to/from Cusco can easily mean an overnight in Lima due to the timing of international flights, it's good to have this option.

The previous posters have hit the main points. It's a really nice property with excellent service (I stay in a lot of IHG properties--Spire elite); the location can't be beat. The food I've had there (dinner on the first stay) was very good, especially for a kitchen just starting up.

Post No. 4 says what to do to get to the hotel: to the far right (facing the windows out of the terminal) into the limo/taxi area. I would contact the hotel for information as to which service to use; the hotel is extremely responsive and helpful. It's not clear to me that you could walk there.

I am pretty sure we called the hotel to ask what shuttle to use amongst the bunch that operate from that terminal.

While flying earlier today I was reading my IPAD and found notes regarding my earlier PERU trip. Here is what had regarding the HI Peru airport:

A hotel representative responded back that she registered my flight and that I was to go to the CMV counter in the airport and she attached a map. Also included was a confirmation number. CMV is the CMV taxi booth, just as a point of reference inside the airport. The location contains a bank of taxi and transportation services. Ask the hotel for a map of the location. CMV had my name and took me to the hotel, most likely because it was 1AM in the morning. 1 yawn and you are at your hotel! CMV uses black town cars and SUV's. CMV is just after customs but before you enter the main meeting hall. Your experience might be different. Point is the hotel made my feel safe and comfortable and they communicated very well.

PTY1K was right on with the email. I had something similar with [email protected] I cc'd [email protected] as well

Here's my review. It's in Russian, but at least you can see the pics.

I thought it was fine for a short stay. Very clean, modern, great wifi, free shuttle. I didn't have breakfast, so can't comment.
