Really nice staff. Included a nice breakfast in a pretty patio with lorenzo the parrot. The room and building are lovely with high ceilings and art work. They had a luggage store where we left our bags for 5 days while we were away.

I'm only reviewing this place to inform others of 2 issues with this hostel. We arrived at 8pm ish after travelling from Scotland. We were leaving at 3am the following day so we went to bed. We were given the room right next to the reception area and at the front of the building. The reception was really noisy, people... More

I had a decent stay here. The hostel is in a good area of Miraflores ( I felt safe walking around ... unlike in other parts of Lima!) and not too expensive. The room was small and the bathroom had lovely tiles (and unexpected surprise). The staff were friendly and helped get me a taxi and the breakfast was a... More

The hotel is located in the Miraflores district of Lima which is a great choice for a lot of travellers. Room was pretty basic and clean, but, a little on the dark side. Our room was set on the side of the main property and with another adjoining room. There was a 24-hour front desk at the property. Wi fi... More

We arrived late from Argentina, our room was tiny and very noisy, only one towel and one pillow without a case, the staff were uninterested and not friendly. So far the worst accomodation in South America by some distance.

The hotel is nicely located in the district of Miraflores. It is a nice building with a nice atmosphere. However: there was one friendly, helpful young man behind the reception desk but all other staff was very unfriendly and not welcoming at all. One of us has celiac disease and there was no option to receive or make a gluten-free... More

The hostal is lovely~ large airy well-decorated rooms with private bathrooms, many patios, a lovely breakfast every morning, computers and Wi-Fi, and a friendly helpful staff~ all at a fantastic price. Hostal Buenavista is walking distance from the great... More

Mira flores is the place to stay in Lima, and the Buena Vista is a good choice. Clean, secure, nice location and at a good price. Other reviewers complain of noise and undependable hot water - unless you stay at a resort hotel that's Peru!

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel at the beginning of our trip and 1 night at the end and I would advise anyone considering it to look elsewhere. When we first arrived the smell of urine in the lobby was overpowering. I was later told by an engineer that it is actually the smell of rising damp but regardless... More

In Miraflores - a relatively 'good' area of Lima. Rooms were adequate only and hot water was spasmodic but the worst part of this Hotel was the NOISE. Not only from the traffic but the whole place just echoes with people coming and going at all hours of the day and night. We stayed there for 2 nights at the... More
