El Tambo Uno Hotel is located in Lima’s Miraflores district, a relatively upmarket part of the city famed for its shopping, restaurants and parks. The hotel is well located for exploring the city’s many attractions, with a popular mall and the beach both just a short walk away. It’s one of three hotels in the El Tambo chain; the other two are located elsewhere in the same district. Though it's in quite a touristy area, it's a really good budget-friendly option with flexible accommodation.
There are 57 rooms in total. There's a choice of single, double or triple rooms, with an extra bed available on request. All rooms are pleasantly decorated and offer a limited yet adequate range of amenities such as a cable TV, a fan and a hairdryer. They also offer a good amount of space and have either street views or views over the hotel’s gardens.
The restaurant serves complimentary daily breakfasts. It’s also open for lunchtime and evening meals, serving an array of local and national Peruvian delicacies, along with a range of refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and lighter snacks.
Many of the district’s top attractions are within walking distance and the beach is less than ten minutes away by foot, a very popular destination during the warm summer months, with all sorts of water sports available. There’s also a large public park and the Larcomar Shopping Centre with its distinct mix of Peruvian and international brands. The boardwalk is widely regarded as the district’s best attraction, stretching for some six miles and offering spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, taking guests past several lush public parks along the way.
Children of all ages can stay here. While are no designated child-oriented facilities or services on offer, the relaxed atmosphere is conducive to making families feel very welcome and the parks, beaches and attractions local to Miraflores mean there's plenty to do for all age groups.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
