Well located in the upmarket Mira Flores residential area with many big hotels nearby. The rooms are a little small but well furnished. There is no heating or cooling but table fans which are adequate once the night progresses but a little warm initially. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and sufficient. Safe is available in the room. The breakfast...

EL Tambo Peru, Miraflores, Lima Region. Clean, good beds, great breakfast - scrambled eggs, cold cuts, cheese, delicious rolls for sandwiches, sliced melons, great Miraflores location - 10" walk from AV. Larco and Larco Mar. Room a little warm at night and leaving windows open gave breeze but let in street noises and light at 6:30am. (Larco Mar - oceanfront...

Was looking forward to staying here, based on a friend's recommendation. Staff apathetic but ultimately helpful. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was good. They should invest in AC units. Would likely pick somewhere else next time.

The hotel was clean and the neighborhood was safe and convenient.The major complaint is that the room and bathroom are just too small for two adults. It was annoying that the tap water is now t drinkable, but we had to keep asking for bottled water. I would say that it was just adequate. Completely non memorable, but the price...

Small place centrally located in Miraflores that is not great for light sleepers. Mopping starts at 11pm and breakfast prep at 4:30. All necessary to keep up a nice hotel with tour group time restrictions. But the friendly helpful staff and very nice breakfast made up for that. Not sure of price as I stayed there as part of a...

This hotel is in a great location in Miraflores Lima just a few blocks to the coast and shopping mall. The service was excellent but the hotel has no air conditioners and so you have to leave your window open and it is VERY noisy. Hardly slept after a 12 flight. The wifi is not great either, constantly dropping out.

First time in the city last summer. Great location, walking distance to Larcomar mall. Rooms are small but have all service you need. Staff is wonderful and very helpful. When visiting a place for the first time, I'm more concerned about location and I really felt safe in this neighborhood. Definitely a good start for my 10 days first trip...

On our first stay, we were given room on the 2nd building with no elevator but the porter helped us with...
