El Tambo Hotel
Welcoming modern hotel in a quiet yet central location, offering a good range of services and facilities.
The modern and welcoming small El Tambo Hotel is in the attractive district of Miraflores; the oceanfront residential and commercial centre of Lima. It has the advantage of being in a quiet central location yet close to the city's seaside promenade, the Malecón, and within easy walking distance of many of the city's best restaurants and bars.
There is nothing especially Peruvian about the contemporary décor but the guestrooms are spacious, bright and decorated with local handicrafts and pictures. The hotel has some pleasant outdoor areas including an attractive front garden with a lawn. There's a restaurant and bar, and a good range of services and facilities.

This was a good hotel for transit in and out of LimaCG Strathcarron
Hotel is in a great location but is a bit dumpy.BL,
The staff were exceptionally helpful and the hotel was in a good location in Miraflores, close to many amenities. The only small thing I would mention is the WiFi didn't work in the rooms and was intermittent. Otherwise I was very happy with everything connected with this hotel and the staff.KL Aylesbury
A good, well-located hotel with a good breakfast. Only downside was that some rooms were quite noisy.FS London
A great location with plenty of bars and restaurants in a few directions. Very helpful staff with good service.JC Usk
El Tambo is a small, pleasant hotel conveniently located in Miraflores within easy walking distance of a good selection of restaurants. Public transport links to the centre of Lima are good for those who wish to use them. Otherwise most places can be reached for a modest taxi fare. The clientele of the hotel is transient and for this reason the facilities are not extensive but more than adequate for travellers passing through on short stays. The staff were friendly and helpful.BT Ware
Having gone into Lima centre, I was so pleased Lina put me by the coast in Miraflores - and after being up in the highlands of Peru (where I had fabulous experiences in Cusco, Machu Picchu and Puno) it was great to be in a stylish, chic setting with great restaurants, bars and shopping& just for a little while.PW Norwich
Good place for a first night. Nice quiet area, within walking distance of bars and restaurantsIA, London
