I did not like my stay at this hotel at all. The front yard and lobby/dining area looks nice, but the rooms are old with stained carpets, cramped bathrooms, and very old, sunken-in beds with bedding that's pilling so badly that it's itchy to sleep in. The bathroom was oddly designed (had a very long layout) with very little space... More

The location between the center of Miraflores and the beach is very comfortable. The rooms are small and the bathrooms very small (no chance to stay in here with 2 adults). The staircases are definitely not made for tall Europeans, you have to be careful with your head on every landing. Security is high on the agenda, big fence and... More

For the price Hotel El Ducado is great. Walking distance to Lacomar, the coast, Kennedy/Central parks, hospitals, markets, good food, etc. It is also fenced in and the gate is controlled by the front desk, so it is pretty safe. Our room was clean and had hot showers. The breakfast area is very nice as well. It Is not on... More

We had a 4 day seminar in another hotel in Miraflores (a five star and much more expensive). We were 3 and looking for a close location to sleep. El Ducado turned to be a good choice. We had a 3 bed room with a view to the patio, so we had quiet nights. Beds were bigger than single and... More

this hotel advertises itself as being near the beach - it is if you discount the 150' cliff that it sits on and the 4 lane highway that you have to cross in order to get to the shingle. The breakfast is only juice and bread and jam but there is plenty of it and the bread is fresh. No... More

The hotel is rather expensive for what you get. It is in a good place near to the cliffs and shops in Miraflores. There was no wifi in rooms. The service at breakfast was sometimes rather slow inspite of it being very simple. The reception staff were consistently helpful.

Single pane windows and thin doors are some of the finest amenities here. Shame on you if you like sleeping. Want to hear the couple doing it upstairs? Want to hear a man with whooping cough across a small courtyard? Want to hear the staff bumbling about clumsily all hours of the day and night? Love the sounds of doves?... More

Hotel El Ducado may be a little pricey for South American standards, but it is a nice hotel. Situated in Miraflores, just 5 minutes from Larcomar, the hotel is in an ideal location both to visit Lima but also to have some peace and quiet. Miraflores is a very safe tourist district and there are numerous tours that are on... More

This hotel is a tiny grungy hotel. The room feels like a box with no charm. The worst thing about staying here is how loud the workers are. They start the day a 5:00 am and you can hear everything. There is no regard for their guests and since the hotel is soo small you can hear everyone's conversations. The... More

Miraflores is the place to be if you are a tourist, and it is also a good location for many business and other purposes. The place is full of international visitors from many places, and chances are you will not have problems communicating in any number of languages. Lima hotels can trend expensive and El Ducado is a fine choice... More
