Comments  (English):
Two friends and myself decided to go to Lima in August; they wanted to stay at the Radisson Decapolis and I decided to economize and stay at Tradiciones after having read such positive reviews of it. Arriving close to midnight in Lima, I was greatly relieved to when the pre-arranged transfer at the airport went as smoothly as it did -- and for a little extra money the driver agreed to take all three of us, first dropping my friends off at the Radisson, then taking me on to Tradiciones. At this point it was well after midnight, and I was informed that despite my guaranteed reservation there was no room for me and instead I would be accommodated at anotherB&B a few blocks away. The driver took me there, and the place was a total dump -- noisy beyond belief and completely inferior. I was told that I could go to Tradiciiones for my breakfast (yeah, walk blocks in the rain from my dump to the place I should have been for a continental breakfast) if I wished, and that was that. It's wrong to guarantee a reservation and then not honor it, but if through some circumstance beyond control that should happen then the correct thing to do is provide equal or better accommodation, not something inferior as they did. I should have listened to my friends and stayed at the Radisson; it cost three times as much but was thirty times better
