The personnel of the hotel are attentive, quick to solve any issues. However, the hotel at first look OK but you start to detect problems when you get in to the halls and rooms. A huge problem with this hotel is that its walls, doors and window panes seem not to have any soundproof materials and are very thin, so...

Centrally located in Miraflores the El Tambo is clean and comfortable. Walking distance to many attractions and in a more quite street so traffic noise is limited. Beds were comfortable and room was large, bright and airy. Breakfast being included was a bonus and a lovely spread was presented each morning. Onsite restaurant served evening meals which was great when...

Stayed here for five nights with my wife and toddler. The rates at the Marriott and Hilton were too high that week. It's in the center of Miraflores and its pretty safe and walking distance to many delicious Peruvians restaurants and Larco Mar. We stayed in a king bed room with a crib and the room was cozy and quite...

I am truly grateful for the kindness and assistance from the staff. I relocated to Peru for 6 months and stayed at this hotel for a week. 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.

This small hotel was convenient for our few days in Lima at the beginning and end of our 3 week visit to Peru. It served its purpose, is in a nice area, is reasonably priced and clean, reception was friendly enough.
