“Great Location, Great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2007

We stayed at this hotel during an 8 day trip to Peru, on the first and last night of our trip. It was part of a package through Latin America 4 Less tours.

The staff was incredibly welcoming to us on our first night, the room was clean and comfortable, and we were surprised to walk just a few blocks to the main drag in Miraflores and find restaurants and shops. There is also a really interesting art gallery a couple blocks away.

There is a computer with internet access in the lobby for a fee, but the front desk told me I could use it for free as long as there wasn't a line of people waiting.

When we returned to the hotel on the last night of our trip, the staff remembered us and welcomed us back, asking how we enjoyed our travels.

The breakfast buffet is modest, but included! And, I requested something that wasn't set out, and the attendant quickly brought it with a smile.

I highly recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay in a good location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2006

As native Peruvians who'd been away for 20 yrs, my elderly mother and I wanted a safe, comfortable, mid-priced hotel for our first few nights in Lima. We were not disappointed with the Leon de Oro: extremely helpful staff (even when checking in at 1:00 a.m.), delightful breakfast, and very comfortable rooms. Though not luxurious (bring your own shampoo), it was very clean and well maintained. Small computer with internet in the lobby. It's in a quiet, residential area yet walking distance from the shops and restaurants of Miraflores. For US$58 a double, we were more than happy and do not hesitate to recommend it.

The best things about this hotel were it's location and the staff. It's easy to walk around Miraflores from the hotel. The staff was very helpful and even had a money changer come to the hotel late at night to help us out. They sent a taxi to pick us up at the airport and made restaurant reservations for us. Rooms were OK, nothing special. They have a small dining area that's convenient for breakfast. They offer a free breakfast or you can expand on it by ordering extra items for a small charge. It was easy to set up reservations with them via email and their website. It's a good deal for the money.

"We loved the smallness, atmosphere and intimacy of Leon de Oro". Price was the best in the area. And the scale was very human. The best thing about the Hotel is the Staff. Everyone is so nice and go out of their way to make Your stay Wonderful. They gave us recommendations on all things to do and see in Lima.

My wife and I stayed at the at Leon de Oro in April. We loved this small Hotel, the rooms were great, the staff was fantastic and the location was perfect. We stayed in room 302, with it's private hot-tub. The staff was so helpful, going out of their way to do anything they could for you. I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking about going to Lima peru. We will go back here.

We did not stay in Lima long (June 2004). In fact, we were in the Leon de Oro two nights upon arriving in Peru and one night before leaving (with Cusco and Maccu Picchu in between). But the Leon de Oro was nice and the staff was friendly. It seemed to be fairly well located, as driving to any other location did not take long. There are shops and restuarants within walking distance. And don't be afraid of the neighborhood, it is actually pretty nice for Lima. The rooms were nice and clean and of reasonable size. The staff was polite and helpful and they have an Internet connection in the lobby. All in all, a pretty nice place.
