This is a spotless, friendly, quiet refuge in noisy Tarapoto. The staff is helpful and kind especially the grandmother who treats you like one of her children. We stayed in the new wing which is very spacious and bright with a bright yellow bathroom. Breakfast is delicious and is served upstairs on a balcony The balcony has a great view... More

This is one if the loveliest places we've stayed in Peru. It's sparkling clean, the showers are fantastic and the upstairs hammock area is just what you need to escape the sometimes oppressive heat of Tarapoto. The owner of the hotel is a charm, it's like being looked after by the world's kindest granny :) We would definitely stay here... More

Nice " habicacion" matrimonial, with big fan. Room with air conditioning costs 50 Sol (15 euro extra). Breakfast optional for extra 10 Sol you get a very good breakfast (no limit on coffee tea or bread) served on terras on top of building with great vieuws. Shower has the "electrical" head but this one looks safe enough to stand under.... More

I spent three nights at El Mirador. I really enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is very clean, quiet, and my bed was comfortable. I had a good wifi coonection most of the time. The staff was very helpful and Señora Talma, the owner, is a delightful woman who runs a good hotel. My room was a little stuffy right... More

Great spot quiet and friendly. Will pickup from the airport as part of the service. Thelma the owner has her finger on the pulse. Best breakfast in all of Peru. The cost of a private room in the new building is a bit steep at S150 but has AC. There are other less costly options available. We stayed in room... More

If you are going to Tarapoto, you need to have two things in mind. First, Tarapoto is not Lima, and El Mirador is not a Hilton. Tarapoto is rural Peru, and things are much more rustic than in the big city. Second, your trip will be must better if you or someone in your party speaks Spanish. Very few people... More

We stayed in the separate cabin at the back of the El Mirador. We enjoyed the friendliness of the owner, she always asked how we were doing and wished us sweet dreams. The conversation was rather limited as she only speaks Spanish and we don't. Go for the breakfast in the morning, it is a feast. We never had better... More
