This place was ok until it was time to leave. But they ruined everything by demanding that we wait while they checked the fridge to see if we had taken anything. Do they even know what an "honor bar" is? I have traveled in more than 30 countries and have never seen anything like this. What an outrage. Intrepid should...

Stayed in this hotel as part of the Intrepid "inca trail and amazon" trip. Rooms were large but basic. Breakfast was average and slow wi-fi was only available in the hotel lobby. Staff not particularly friendly and insisted on checking the mini bar before we were allowed to check out. They applied this rule to other members of our tour...

Stayed for one night on arrival in Lima. Staff was unfriendly and unhelpfu. Room was large and clean - but it smelled moldy (with a spray of deodorizer overtop)... bathroom was very large and clean -but no hot water at all. One positive is the hotel is close to the shore/walkways of Miraflores and only a few blocks from a...

Stayed for 2 nights, arriving in the middle of the night. There are two parts to the building, one older and one newer. My room was in the older part of the building with a window into a light well (other rooms have windows looking out). Very small room and a tiny tiny bathroom with intermittent hot water. Also the...

This hotel is absolutely fine if you want to stay in Miraflores - walking distance from Parque Kennedy and Lacomar, and even the Huaca Puccllana ruins if you enjoy a good stroll. But in addition to staying here for one night, we also stayed elsewhere in downtown Lima, which is nearer to the main attractions as well as the airport....

Hey, it's called The Lighthouse (El Faro) after all, so it's appropriate that the one outstanding feature of this hotel is the exquisite view of the ocean and Miraflores from the rooftop bar/lounge. They have wifi, so we ordered food from the kitchen and enjoyed the cool breeze and the lovely views. El Faro is near all the big tourist...

I'm a tour leader and I have stayed many times at El Faro Inn. One of the last times my computer was stolen from my room and the guest next door lost a computer and a camera. The hotel staff acted slowly and idle as the theft could have been avoided if they respected their own rules. The main suspect...

Me and a friend stayed a couple nights here during a recent Peru trip. When I saw the description as a 'hostal' I was a bit concerned but there are separate rooms and toilets for visitors. It is actually more of a hotel and very close to Lover's Park and walkable to some decent restaurants/bars (Huaraches and Brujas de Cachiche)....

The location is in the residential part of the touristic neighboardhood of Miraflores, you can walk 10 minutes from the hotel and reach the center of miraflores where you can find restaurants, shops, and night live. The place is very quiet and nice, and is near the ocean, you can go to run in the morning in the boulevard that...
