Marrying an eclectic sense of modern cool with an old school service ethic that anticipates guests’ every need, Atemporal is an intimate hotel for discerning travellers looking for a refuge to recharge their batteries between adventures in Lima and around Peru.

Housed in a revamped 1940s mansion in the chic Miraflores district, the property is just metres from the Huaca Pucllana, the pre-Inca ‘pyramid’ that is one of Lima’s most important archaeological sites. It’s also walking distance to some of Lima’s best restaurants, such as Astrid y Gaston, the eatery that launched Peru’s astonishing culinary boom back in the 1990s and Osaka, one of the country’s best Nikkei or Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurants.

The nine-room hotelito with its original, but functional, collector’s aesthetic comes from the same design team behind the award-winning Hotel B, in the neighboring district of Barranco, and Titilaka, the luxury hotel on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

The relaxed atmosphere breaks down the barriers between visitors and the knowledgeable friendly staff. Luxury townhouse meets homely hotel, Atemporal is a genuine one-off in Lima, and ideal for travelers seeking an original and informal base in the capital.

The nine rooms are spread across two floors; there are two categories on offer with approximately 28 square metres or 18 square metres respectively. The rooms have either a King sized bed, or two Twins with superb ergonomic mattresses and high quality Peruvian pima cotton, air-conditioning and handmade toiletries. You’ll be fully connected with Wi-Fi, Smart TV, DirecTV, Netflix and ports for iPods.

There are common spaces including a veranda, salon and country garden. The décor is restrained with opaque tones and features artwork, photography and artefacts from across Peru.

The services are top-class. A Maître de maison around-the-clock service provides access to all that Lima’s contemporary scene has to offer. A full service concierge offers flexible made-to-measure assistance with your every need, and the 24/7 food service with a menu of contemporary Peruvian and international dishes with locally-sourced natural ingredients will satisfy all your cravings.
