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.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)
The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.
Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!
Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good
Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.
Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.
Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
