Fabiola and Oscar are amongst a staff of professional and generous people. Upon my first trip to Peru, I stayed across the street in the Hilton but when I checked into my room...

This lovely hotel is close to everything in the safe area of Miraflores. Close to the ocean and lots of restaurants to choose from. Staff were helpful and spoke English. Lots of easy flat walks to see all the sights. Breakfast is simple Peruvian choices but all were good.

I stayed at El Tambo at the beginning and end of my Peru trip. The location could not be better. It's within walking distance of Barranco, Larcomar, all of Miraflores, and a number of shops, groceries and money exchangers. The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are clean and freshly decorated, the common spaces are modern and fresh with some...
