“Good hotel and good location”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

We stayed with my family (10 people) in El Ducado for around 15days and found it to be of good quality with a cute patio to spend time outside. Everything from breakfast to room quality is a good standard. The downside is there is no elevator, and the reception employees could be quite unhelpful. Good location, close to Larco Mar and for what we wanted it was good. If asked we would recommend to friends

Although Lima is far from my favourite place (too big, busy and noisy), this hotel is in a nice area of Lima next to the coast - MIraflores (if you like shopping centres and lots of people, especially at the weekends). It was such a contrast to Cuzco and surroundings! Anyway, the hotel is basic as far as I am concerned, and the staff (apart from one waiter) are most unfriendly. It does not warrant its star rating or its price. It can also be noisy depending on what room you are allocated. Go elsewhere but if you do stay there ask for a rooom at the back or you may get disturbed sleep. I also had a dispute with the charge for the room (agreed by email, whcih I had with me) but disputed at the desk. In the end I did get the rate I agreed after discussion.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel - if you are at the front you may be over the entrance (VERY noisy...

Having just spent two weeks in Peru with my partner, we have found the “star” rating of hotels in the country to be extremely unreliable. The variability between the 3* hotels we stayed in was enormous: some were no better than a basic hostal, others more like a luxurious 4*. You must be aware of it upon booking. Generally the price of a hotel is a better guide to the level of accommodation you will receive. I would also recommend that, if you’re planning on staying 3 or more nights in a particular city/town, book only the 1st night and if you like it, extend, if you don’t look and shop around. We found that most nice hotels are willing to give discounted rates and often have spaces.

El Ducado is:
- Well positioned in the Miraflores district (near restaurants etc).
- Has good room sizes, though if you ask for a double you get a 135cm bed (a bit small for us!).
- Nice common areas (especially patio).
- Dated look and decor by European standards.
- Reasonable value for money given how expensive other Lima hotels are.

Our room at El Ducado was one of the smallest rooms we've ever stayed in but it was fairly clean and comfortable. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood in Miraflores and we felt safe walking around at night. The hotel breakfast was plentiful and quite good. The hotel has no bar but there is a convenience store a few blocks away and we were welcome to sit in the dining room and enjoy our beers. There is no elevator so make sure you get a lower floor if you have a problem taking the stairs.

The staff was very nice and helpful. There is only one public computer available and unfortunately there are no time limits enforced. Luckily, we had our iPhones with us and were able to access the internet via the hotels complimentary wifi.

The first room we stayed in (on the fourth floor, no elevator) was small, had mold, was cold (we were not told about the heating option, an extra $5 USD). The carpet was old, and the bed spread was old and worn. The windows don't completely keep out the cold and damp Lima air. It seemed like a cheap US motel room. We complained through our travel agent and we were upgraded to a suite, in a building behind the courtyard, at no extra charge. The suite was bigger, the carpet was the same, windows the same, the sheets were newer. We then learned about the option to get a remote control that turns on the heater, which helped. However, there was rust on all metal surfaces in the bathroom (towel holders, etc). The lobby is nice, and there is a nice courtyard, which belies the mundane rooms. The breakfast was simple but tasty (rolls, butter, coffee, and for additional fee eggs, and other items.)

They have weak WIFI, a public computer with slow internet. Service was pretty good, they made reservations for us at restaurants, flagged down taxis, and provided quick responses for water and extra toilet paper.

Hotel is super well located. I could say service is very good, fast and accommodating. You can get a cab and run everywhere in Miraflores for 5 soles, to San Isidro and other areas for 10-15 soles. Area is very clean, safe and really nice. Larcomar is around the corner and convinient. There are 4 banks on the corner where you can withdraw money in soles or US dollars and also money exhangers. There some restaurants, pizza hut and coffee shops. You could walk to the Indian Market, Plaza Kennedy if you want or just take a cab for 5 soles (1 sole=2.70 US dollars - Aug-11). Rooms are clean and well kept, decor is a bit updated but I see no problem with that. The only con was breakfast which is served plain and the same everyday... but it is good for a change to walk around and try something different. By the way there is no elevator but I was at second floor and did not see any problem with that.

Room Tip: Choose the first or second floor rooms because they have no elevator.
