Small hotel in pleasant location in a safe area of Lima. We enjoyed the juiciest fresh fruit for breakfast next to the little garden. We watched a humming bird sucking nectar from the honeysuckle whilst we ate. The staff had little English but were very helpful. The only negative was the room insulation as we were disturbed by other guests... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week over the New Year period. The location was good. It was easy to explore Miraflores and Barranco from the hotel and it was in a nice area. The hotel itself was fine, but nothing special. The room was nice and spacious with a double and single bed and a good bathroom... More

Entering the hotel you are lulled in to a false sense of security that the rooms are going to be OK. Check in and being told that the restaurant operates 24 hours, ones expectations are raised go to the room and reality hits home. A basic room, a shelf, a sorry excuse for a desk, no air conditioning, but don't... More

Well located comfortable hotel in Miramar. Short 10 min walk to sea front or to Park Kennedy area. Much better appointed than I had expected. Residential quiet street; room was bright, spacious and clean; friendly reception staff; free wifi ( which we found almost everywhere in Peru). After a long flight, this was a lovely start to a wonderful holiday.

We stayed here twice a few weeks ago as part of our group tour. The hotel was very clean and we enjoyed the breakfast. During our first stay we were assigned to the 4th floor with a room that looked into the courtyard. It was very clean, quiet for sleeping, room for two to move around, and hot showers and... More

Everything you need in an hotel is here, position is less Than 10 minutes from main shopping area, it's clean and the staff is nice. They can do a better breakfast (it's Anyway big!) and give a better wifi which is Anyway good enough for "travel duties". Choose tambo!!

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our trip to Peru. Reception, rooms and bathrooms are clean but rooms are smaller than other hotels we stayed at, breakfast was good, staff friendly and organised taxi for us to the airport with no problems.
