Just returned from a wonderful visit to Peru. Ten of us started our trip at the fantastic Hostal Buenavista in Miraflores. 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

Our experience was quite satisfactory in this hostel located in the Miraflores district of Lima, one of 2 or 3 tourist-friendly and secure areas in this capital city, where we landed to start our Peruvian journey. While Miraflores is a 15 minute cab ride from the heart of Lima (Plaza de Armas) and I usually prefer staying in city center... More

I really loved this place, it really felt like a home away from home and was a great place to start off my trip. The staff were friendly, the room was clean and had all mod-cons, and it was a nice place to relax. There is also a pet parrot which also makes for great entertainment. The hotel is located... More

We stayed here twice at the start and end of our trip. Both rooms had comfortable beds and clean showers and toilets. Breakfast was fine although because it is served in an open area it can be chilly and damp. We found the reception staff helpful. They sorted our check-in for a LAN flight. The rooms are rather gloomy and... More

We stayed for several days at this centrally located hotel. in the heart of Miraflores. It is a very popular spot for backpackers and a stop over for many people on organized tours. The hotel is small and quaint. The rooms vary in size, and come with either single(s), double or matrimonial bed(s) but all are quite noisy due to... More

We only stayed for one night in July 2013 but impressions were: nice looking hotel, nice looking room and good location, BUT staff were unfriendly, housekeeping poor - toilet paper bin full on arrival to our room! rooms very noisy due to busy road and poorly fitting windows. There will be better places to stay.
