Reviewed 27 April 2017

its a nice, clean and comfortable hotel. Staff is friendly and hotel is well maintained. There is no coffee maker nor a refrigerator and no AC in our room although we did well with the stand up fan provided. We placed the fan on a table and allowed air to circulate comfortably. You can open windows to allow air to come in. There is a hairdryer in bathroom. There is wifi and tv with some channels in English and even Chinese language shows. The restaurant had a good selection for breakfast, Buffett style. It's a nice, clean hotel to rest while touring. I overheard that there are rooms with AC on the other side of hotel but no elevator. You can take the Metropolitano bus system, closest station is on 28 de julio station, which has its own lane and allows you to travel to the Lima district in about 25 minutes. In traffic it would take a lot longer.

Room Tip: If you need AC, ASK for they are available except I overheard there is no elevator on that side of h...

Nice location in Mira Flores, close to all of the amenities of this upscale area of town. . Clean, staff was helpful! . No air conditioning, but each room has a fan. Beautiful balcony from our room. Leaving the balcony door open cooled the room, but we heard the trash pick up at 0300. Nice set up for families (one double bed and one single in a room). No elevator,

Well located in the upmarket Mira Flores residential area with many big hotels nearby. The rooms are a little small but well furnished. There is no heating or cooling but table fans which are adequate once the night progresses but a little warm initially.
The rooms and bathrooms are clean and sufficient. Safe is available in the room.
The breakfast is a good spread with a friendly chef who can customize things to your taste. The fresh fruits and juices are just amazing. They provide breakfast even if you are leaving earliear than the breakfast time.
The lounge and common areas are quite nice and the staff are friendly.
Elevator is available for easy access to the rooms. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
Supermarkets, restaurants etc are all available wihtin a short walking distance.

EL Tambo Peru, Miraflores, Lima Region.
Clean, good beds, great breakfast - scrambled eggs, cold cuts, cheese, delicious rolls for sandwiches, sliced melons, great Miraflores location - 10" walk from AV. Larco and Larco Mar. Room a little warm at night and leaving windows open gave breeze but let in street noises and light at 6:30am. (Larco Mar - oceanfront mall with shops and restaurants.) El Tambo excellently situated to take advantage of this oceanfront mall. Also walking distance to the famed artisans' market in Miraflores.

Was looking forward to staying here, based on a friend's recommendation. Staff apathetic but ultimately helpful. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was good. They should invest in AC units. Would likely pick somewhere else next time.
