The good: Excellent central and safe Miraflores location, about 3 minutes walk to Ave. Larco. Breakfast was decent and plentiful, though a bit boring, i.e., rolls, fresh juice, alternating days of fresh fruit and lunchmeat with cheese. Very nice staff. The bad: Checked in on 06 Sept. 2016, after a long series of flights from NE USA. Room 16 was...

Dear Sir, we apologize for all the problems you had the first two nights, fortunately we moved you to a different room for the next and last three nights, which seems to be way better than the previous one, due to absence of comments about it. We thought we could fix the lack of hot water, but the problem was...

Stayed in the hotel twice on our Perú's trip. Was really surprised how nice it is, specially the patio with all of those plants and flowers. rooms are big and comfortable, hotel is an old well maintained house, it's close to many chops and restaurants in the middle of Miraflores. Service and people were good . Highly recommended.

I have stayed here two years in a row. I find it to be in an excellent location in Miraflores and perfect for a single traveler. I have had a small kitchenette on both occasions and have found it very convenient to have a small fridge and microwave for cold drinks or for a cup of tea. The staff is...

The beds were very old, sagged in the middle and squeaky bed springs. But the absolutely worst part....the bed bugs. Bites all over my ankles and up my legs. Breakfast was minimal, too. Location was central but construction on the street made sleep impossible.

Dear Sir, thanks for writing. We have already answered the same allegations to other member of your crew, which is, and I am sorry to mention it again, impossible to believe, due to its inconsistency. Your condescension is obvious and we understand it, we share the idea of being loyal in every way, so please let us recommend you to...

After all the moving around, I was hoping for a nicer hotel for our last destination. But our TA booked us here, doable and functional. I do not know the price but the garden made all the difference on the ambiance. Other than that, for a budget, this will do. It is walking distance from everywhere. However, some of us...

Dear guest, we are deeply sorry this hotel was not nicer as you sure deserve. We know you were expecting an elevator and a few other things, but your TA did know we do not have it. Now, regarding the comment about bug bites, which is our biggest concern, your TA sent us an email saying "all of you (17...

This is the second time I stay in this guesthouse, and it has not changed - meaning it still provides excellent value for Lima. The location in Miraflores is perfect, and the place is really a small green oasis in the middle of the city. Recommended !

Hostal El Patio, in the Miraflores District of Lima, has a small group of rooms that surround a small, lovely garden on the first floor and a patio terrace on the second. The decor is quaint and funky. The rooms are basic and comfortable, with plenty of storage space. Each room is provided with a pitcher of filtered water, which...

I stayed here for 3 nights during June 2016. Each day I had to switch rooms since rooms fill up rather quickly there. This was not a major problem & the staff offered to move my belongings since I was out during the day. When I came back I got my new room key & found my luggage neatly placed...

Stayed for a night. Love the common areas... Love. Room was okay. Clean. Walls are a bit thin so it was a little noisy at night. First place I've stayed in Lima on this trip... so still gauging this country's "standard" if you will. I had slightly higher expectations of the room for the cost. However to be fair the...

We recently spent 4 nights at the Beautiful Hostal El Patio. It was perfect for our needs: quiet, clean, atmospheric, colorful gardens, delightful sitting areas, good breakfasts, helpful staff: what more could you ask for? All in all, a very peaceful respite in the middle of all things Lima. Miraflores is a delightful area and all sights are easily accesible...
