Overview

This decidedly modern hotel is located within Lima’s Miraflores District, one of the city’s most affluent and tourist friendly areas. It’s a convenient base from which to explore the city’s many distinct areas, not to mention its abundance of attractions. Just half an hour away from the airport, the hotel is a comfortable, mid-range option for travellers on a budget.

There's a total of 42 air conditioned rooms, with the option of single, double or triple bed formation. All rooms offer plenty of space and are decorated in a pleasant and contemporary style. They have laminated flooring and contemporary splashes of red throughout, with stonework furnishings adding a touch of character. Amenities such as a hair dryer, an LCD TV with cable channels, complimentary toiletries and bottled water are provided; minibars are also available, though only on request. The bathrooms have showers with rainfall shower heads.

Buffet breakfast is served at the Sawa Cafe, which is also open daily for lunch and breakfast, serving an array of international and Peruvian dishes, with a broad drinks menu featuring local cocktails, fine wines and non-alcoholic beverages. Lighter snacks are also available throughout the day. The hotel has a public lounge and several social areas where guests are free to relax and unwind. Laundry services and currency exchange are also available.

The hotel is well placed for those wishing to explore the trendy Miraflores District. There are lush parks and beaches that are hotspots for water sports, plus a wide range of shops and a diverse line-up of restaurants, cafes and bars. The district’s central plaza holds regular art exhibitions and flea markets, popular with both locals and tourists alike. While there’s plenty to experience in the district, it’s definitely worth exploring the many other districts that make up the city. The historic centre of the city, for example, is home to an impressive cluster of well preserved buildings showcasing colonial architecture and design. Another district worthy of mention is the Barranco District, which has a thriving and energetic arts scene. It’s a hub for artists, designers and musicians, and surfers are also attracted to its beaches where top surfing competitions are often held.

The hotel does welcome children, although parents should note that there are no designated child services or facilities available on site. That said, there's no shortage of activities and entertainment for all age groups in the immediate vicinity.

  • Hi Lisa,

    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!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • 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.

  • Once again you organised a really good holiday for us.
    If there was one criticism it was that there were too many flights. I don’t know whether you could do Bangkok first, Chiang Mai, then fly down South?
    Your drivers and Guides - all really good. The variety of transport on the tours in Bangkok and Chiang Mai; we all loved.
    Tamarind Village - Our room was a bit of a squeeze, with the 3 of us and 3 big suitcases.
    Lisu Lodge- I enjoyed our time here. Going forward I would suggest only 1 night or they need to have some more activities. I liked how we ate on the floor, the food was really good. Staff very friendly. We liked the cycling, tea plantation, trekking and white water rafting.
    Riva Surya- good location.
    Elephant Hills- we loved looking after the elephants, the lake was also a really good experience. The guides were informative and looked after us well. The resort locations and tents were perfect.
    Santiburi - amazing; we upgraded to a beach bungalow which was fantastic. The hotel is in a stunning location, the facilities and the service was impeccable. Sam has some private Thai boxing lessons, which he loved. We had cookery lessons and used the paddle boards. A perfect end to quite a busy holiday.
