Prior to arriving in Lima, I called the hotel and spoke with someone (in English) about arranging pick up from the hotel. Upon arriving in Lima, our driver was there waiting for us with a sign with my name on it. He promptly took us to his car and drove us to the hotel. We were glad we didn’t rent a car in Peru because there are no rules when driving in Peru and our driver got us to the hotel safely!
The staff at the hotel was great. They immediately provided us with a map of the Miraflores area and told us where the closest grocery stores were so we could purchase water (and highlighted the route for us). We also needed help getting our tickets into Machu Picchu and the staff was amazing at helping us do this. They gave us 2 options: 1. They could do it for us for an extra fee or 2. They could help us do it ourselves. We were okay with option #1, but they insisted on us doing it ourselves so we could get the “full experience”! It was very easy to do and they gave us directions every step of the way.
The hotel location was a very safe area and we were able to walk around, day and night. It was also extremely close to the Metropolitano, the public bus service, that took us directly to El Centro (for very few soles). The breakfast was good and the beds were okay.
The only con to this hotel is it was cold and there wasn’t any heat. The weather in Miraflores in July is cold and misty, so night time was a bit cold.
Finally, the hotel arranged for our driver to take us back to the airport on our last day for a (small) fee. Overall, we had a nice stay in this hotel!
