Though the rooms were nothing to write home about, what sets El Carmelo apart is the unimaginable degree of service you receive. The friendliness of the staff is, bar none, the best I have ever experienced in any country. Ask for Patricia! But any employee will be happy to guide you to something fun to do or something great to eat. Stocked with maps and local tips and a smile, we left El Carmelo every day being more and more impressed with the quality of service.
We checked out at noon and they gladly held our bags until 8pm, as well as letting us lounge in the lobby to take a break from the sun. They made phone calls to ask questions for us. Heck, one time another guest (from Lima) offered to walk us to a sports club to ask if we could use the pool. The whole experience was very indicative of Limeños.
Add on top of all this, the price was very affordable and it is located right next to El Parque del Amor in Miraflores.
