My husband and I are touring Peru in early May. The group stays in the Casa Andina Select the first night. We're arriving 4 nights before the official meet to spend some time exploring Lima by ourselves and er....visiting all the amazing restaurants!
Our decision is whether to book ourselves into the Casa Andina Select from our arrival - it's relatively cheap and means we don't have to move (but we're aware it's a tour group friendly corporate hotel); or whether to book ourselves somewhere a bit more individual/special for the first few nights then move.
We're not interested in business facilities etc but if we spent the extra money we'd be looking for a lovely comfortable room, nice bar for pisco sours etc. Thinking that the Belmond is a bit pricey and over the top for what we want - and assuming that the Hilton/Westin/Marriott are a bit corporate. Can't decide whether to splash out for Hotel B/Atemporal/Country Club in order to experience something unique, or whether to save the money/hassle and stick with the Casa Andina Select.
Would love any thoughts on this!
