Stayed here two nights on our arrival in Lima. Conveniently located in quiet residential area; walking past you would almost miss that it was a hotel. Took a short walk to the seaside and new shopping plaza - Larcomer with many restaurants/ cafes to choose from as well as lots of shops. Our room seemed quite small but was fine...

El Tambo is a good quiet hotel close to the heart of Lima in the Miraflores district and almost a walk (albeit a long one) from the beach area. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. We stayed in the wing above the restaurant where there isn't a lift but that wasn't a problem for us. We only had breakfast...

Great location a few blocks from the ocean and Larcomar Mall that has great restaurants and views. Breakfast at the hotel was adequate but wish there were more choices. Staff very friendly and room and bathroom were very clean. Nice 3 star hotel for the Miraflores area.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our arrival in Peru with my new husband! Hotel is central in Miraflores but it is basic. Breakfast buffet was fine with meats, fruit and pastries. Reception staff were helpful but one lady was a bit frosty and made us feel a bit of an inconvenience unlike her male colleague who always greeted us...

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...
