Friendly staff and large, clean room. A little bit noisy early in the morning, but our room was situated directly at the stairs. Breakfast was plentiful and nice. Free wifi was available in the rooms. Good location in close proximity to El Parque del Amor.

with a good breakfast and pleasant staff. It is within walking distance to restaurants and a beautiful park area. It is not fancy but pleasant and accommodating. And the garden area within the hotel provides a welcome retreat. It is within the Miraflores area and not so costly. I appreciated this hotel.

I stayed recently at El Tambo for several nights as part of a group tour. The hotel is clean, nicely located, and simple. There is nothing to brag about other than the location and also nothing to complain about. Nothing is complimentary here. Be prepared for pay for everything. Walls in the rooms are quite thin and noise from the... More

The hotel staff was very nice, facilities were brand new, very basic but nice and extremely clean. WIFI was spotty and only located in the lobby despite being "available" in the rooms. Breakfast each morning was very nice. Easy walk to the Larco Mall

We stayed at El Tambo for one night at either end of our trip to Peru and found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs. The hotel is located in a reasonably quiet part of the Minaflores area on a road that is easy to find a taxi etc and about 30 mins from the Plaza Major in the... More

We stayed here in May of 2014 at the beginning and at the end of our trip. The hotel is located in safe area of the city, 10-15 min walk from the busy center, 10-15 min walk from the boardwalk and Larcomar a fancy nearby mall. It has a nice courtyard, elevator and the service is accommodating. Breakfast consisted of... More

Not a great hotel but perfectly adequate for one night. Everything very clean. Staff at front desk very helpful. Breakfast more "international" than we found in the rest of Peru i.e. a bit boring but perfectly adequate. Good location.

Front desk staff did not make eye contact with us during the entire 3 days of our stay. Food was miserable. And the on site restaurant rarely had any business..understandably. Nobody working there appeared to want to be there. We were placed on the 3rd floor with the remaining rooms on our floor occupied by teenagers, slamming doors and yelling... More

We stayed there with our group. Probably we slept in the worst room of this boutique hotel on ground floor right beside the restaurant. That room shouldn’t have been given the guests. Anyways after long hours on the flight to Peru we slept without any distractions. Our friends were happy with their rooms. Other than world brand name hotels most... More

We had a one-night stay-over at El Tambo and were given room 303 right on the street. Cars and buses arrived all night until the early morning hours dropping off busloads full of guests. The guests were very noisy and banged doors and chatted in the corridor. The rooms are not sound proof and have no air conditioning. There are... More
