Lima’s bohemian arts district, Barranco, was known as the aristocracy’s summer getaway in the 19th century. A century later, Peruvian artist Victor Delfin, a resident of Barranco, was key in changing the neighbourhood’s reputation. This guest house, Delfin’s former home, is chock full of paintings and sculptures at every turn. If that wasn’t enough for you, the artist’s workshop is just next door.

2. Hotel B

South of downtown Lima, Miraflores was once a sleepy beach town, now it’s one of the most-visited parts of the city. Casa Andina offers a traditional hotel experience with fun touches, such as the Keith Haring-inspired illustrations in the restaurant. A few blocks away, you’ll find illustrations and handicrafts to take home for yourself at the artisan market, just past Miraflores’s Central Park.

4. Atemporal

On a quiet residential street in Miraflores, Atemporal boasts an alternative housing experience away from the busyness of the business district. That’s because the nine-room hotelito is actually a towering 1940s manor, filled with antique details, such as Tudor windows, spacious reading nooks and wrought iron beds. To visit nearby sites, such as the pre-Inca Huaca Pucllana ruins, take off on one of the hotel’s leather-seated bikes or let the chauffeur drive you in the hotel’s forest-green Mini Cooper.

5. Huaca Wasi Hotel
