Stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip to Peru. First time in original block, the room was little more than adequate, basic, dated, cold and damp. Second time we had a room in a new block, above the restaurant, this was lovely and modern although still cold. This hotel does not cater for the dull drizzly Lima... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. Set in Miraflores area of Lima that is known for being quiet. It looks a bit odd when you arrive as it's behind a high wall but actually when you get in it is very welcoming. We arrived late at night and just wanted a beer before going... More

The hotel is in a good location in the Miraflores district of Lima and within walking distance of several decent restaurants. But the room was small, thin walled and therefore quite noisy and breakfast served in the small downstairs restaurant was very basic. Lumpy bed and minimal covers - nights get cool in the Peruvian winter and the rooms are... More

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.
