I and 2 others stayed at Hostal Rio Amazonas from March 2nd through March 8th. The rooms are clean, there is plenty of warm water for the shower, and the breakfast was excellent.

Very friendly and helpful reception as we arrived very tired from the airport. Rooms clean and straightforward. Good showers. Interesting older building. Easier to find by taxi than in your own car in the heavy traffic of the centre. Breakfast very good.

Took a few stops here in Feb-Mar 2012. Border location between new blocks and historical places. Good reachability by feet and car (underground station and central road within block). Parking place available. Cordial personnel and friendly atmosphere made my memories unforgetable.

Stayed 2 nights in this B&B and really liked it. The room was colorful and quiet. It is centrally located, within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas, restaurants in Bellavista and metro station. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent, with fresh juice, fruit, yogurt, bread, cheese, jam and coffee/tea. They have wifi, but it didn't reach my...

Great location, great old building, very well managed by the family thats on duty all the time (they open the door for you personally). Had a small single room with everything I needed.
