A place for contemporary explorers of life seeking the intrigues and mysteries of Peruvian culture, geography and nature, Hotel B caters to traditionalists looking for an authentic historic atmosphere and to shrewd urban explorers willing to immerse themselves in the city´s contemporary social and cultural scene.
An arts-boutique Hotel in the heart of a bohemian revival neighborhood, housing a unique art collection of its own, Hotel B is surrounded by neighboring galleries and linked directly to the Lucia de la Puente Gallery, which will provide guests with opportunities for private viewings, special events and a connection to Lima’s blossoming art scene.
Originally built in the style of the Belle Époque, the mansion served as a seaside retreat during the presidency of Augusto Leguia in the 1920s. Its architectural features and flair capture the celebratory spirit of Peru’s centennial, which permeated life in the capital city throughout the era of its construction.
Famed French architect Claude Sahut, lauded for his work remodeling portions of the Government Palace, along with many of Lima’s main avenues, parks, theaters and other public buildings and spaces, was originally commissioned to design the property as a summer retreat for the Garcia Bedoya family. Construction was completed in 1914 and initially showcased imported Italian marble and exotic woods, along with an ornate façade, stratospherically high ceilings featuring teatinas (a unique style of skylight favored locally), open balconies and expansive terraces.
The Arts Boutique Hotel B restoration and reconstruction team includes sculptors from the Fine Arts Academy and a legion of carpenters under the supervision of an Italian master woodworker. The goal of the project was to preserve the original structure while introducing a complimentary three-story annex to the property, ushering it into the modern era in its new role as a boutique hotel. The INC (Peru’s Historic Building Society) considers the renovation a new standard for historic restoration in Lima and beyond.
Surrounded by galleries and artists’ studios, it houses a unique art collection of its own and is linked directly to the Lucia de la Puente Gallery, where guests can enjoy private viewings, special events and a vital connection to Lima’s emerging art scene.
The heart of a bohemian revival neighborhood
Lima’s most vibrant district. Now home to many of Peru’s best-known artists, musicians, designers and photographers, Barranco first emerged in the 19th-century as a fashionable seaside retreat for Limeño aristocracy. They summered here amidst the salty air and a drier, warmer microclimate, as the high cliffs of Chorrillos shield Barranco from Lima’s cold and humid southern winds. Families like the Garcia Bedoyas built grand Belle Époqueand Republican style houses around the area’s landscaped parks and along elegant avenues. When 20th century urban expansion encroached upon this elite enclave, those wealthy Limeñans moved out and squatters took up residence in the abandoned, decaying mansions.
Barranco’s fortunes shifted again in the new millennium thanks to a dynamic migration among Lima’s arts community, including fashion photographer Mario Testino, Nobel Prize winning author Mario Vargas Llosa and gallerist Lucia de la Puente. Fresh coats of paint on many of the area’s most charming colonial houses signal this vibrant revival.

From the great wide world to the smallest detailTHE OMNIA – All individual parts come together here high on the rock to form an atmospheric whole. The location, the architecture and the design are one component. But the most important element is you, our guest, with your individual wishes and needs to which we respond with personal service in an informal way. Here you should feel at ease, you should quite simply be yourself. This is the place for unvorgettable moments in calmth and harmony. Welcome!
THE OMNIA is the contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge. Here in the Swiss Alps, the mountain lodge, a quintessentially American concept, has been reinvented for its European environment by the New York based architect Ali Tayar (1959 – 2016). This dialogue between two cultures was the starting point for the design.
While the materials and the craftsmanship reflect the tradition of the Valais, the furnishings are inspired by a warm, handcrafted modernism. This era in 20th century design is revisited in THE OMNIA in the works of a group of European born, American designers whose European roots heavily influenced the American scene. They include Mies van der Rohe, Raymond Loewy, Vladimir Kagan and Eero Saarinen. Their works are complemented by USM Modular Furniture, which is recognised as a design classic in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. But most of the interior furnishings and fittings are custom-made designs by Ali Tayar, conceived to meet the requirements of the mountain lodge and handcrafted by local cabinet makers.
This subtle interplay between design classics and custom-made products underscores the basic concept of the mountain lodge – THE OMNIA is the fusion of a multitude of different elements and influences to make a single harmonious whole.
Here you can forget time.

We like design. We like feeling at home. We like doing what the locals do when we travel. We don’t like to be bothered. But we do like curated, expert advice. We also like good coffee and nice towels, sheets and beds.
As a husband and wife team, we have always loved to travel. But as design-centric people, it is always a disappointment to arrive at our destination and find a hotel with the same beige walls and maroon paisley bedspread. It makes us want to tweet #SAD!
So we decided to create a place where we would love to stay. We wanted a place that allowed our guests to experience the real Philadelphia, the Philly we know and love. And so we created Lokal – a design driven hotel that is highly curated to the local Philadelphian experience. Because everyone should be allowed to vacation in an environment that makes them feel happy. And everyone should love Philly as much as we do.
What was the inspiration behind Lokal?
The inspiration for the Lokal concept came from how we like to travel. We want to stay in design-driven boutique hotels in the heart of residential neighborhoods and feel like we are staying like a local, rather than a tourist.
Why Invisible Service?
The concept of “Invisible Service” came not only from a necessity to make a tiny hotel function, but to enable guests to visit with just the right amount of interaction from us. Everything you will need is loaded into your rooms just like at home and we are a call or text away if you need additional service.
Why choose Old City for Lokal’s first location?
The Historic District of Old City is the perfect spot for our first location. It’s in the heart of the boutique shopping, gallery and cafe section of Old City where no other hotel can fit. You are literally living where the locals live during your stay with us.
