El Pardo DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lima
Arrived in Lima, Peru at 6:40 this morning from New York and were met by Joe Pesci (Julio), our Friendly Planet rep/guide. Had to wait a little for a few others from Miami, but there are only16 in our group. We arrived at our hotel, organized, showered and slept. Changed money. $50 USD = $140 Peruvian nuevo sol. At noon we walked to the market for …
... chicken or pricey 10 dollar plates. The ruins of Tocume outside the city supposedly came with high reccommendations, but we were a bit under-whelmed by the "pyramids" which were basically just giant dirt mounds. The view was also made more dismal by the cloudy skies. We took a bus that day to our final stop in the north, Trujillo. I should mention, the bus rides between towns were some of the most depressing rides I have ever taken. The surroundings are total desolate desert, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsEl Pardo DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Lima
Got put in a room next to a baby shower with a door joining the two rooms, it was extremely noisy. The same baby shower had taken over the swimming pool in the hotel so it wasn't open for public use. Complained about the noise and did get moved to a nicer room. The staff are accommodating and friendly and it is in a good location.

Historical Traveler Reviews El Pardo DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Lima
We stayed 2 nights at the El Pardo Hotel in Lima, Peru.
This was a nice hotel with location in Mira Flores.
It is close to the Pizza Alley as well as Larcomar which is
a short cab ride away (3-5 soles depending on your bartering skill).
The hotel has a business center with free internet (2 terminals)
as well as fitness facilities. We were offered a free welcome drink,
the staff was very helpful in arranging tours to nazca lines, paracas, as well as other city tours.
There was a supermarket close by about 2 blocks from the hotel,
as well as restaurants. Staff were helpful and rooms were clean,
well taen care of, and quiet. This is a reasonable value for Lima
and while not located on the main strip where many of the other hotels are in miraflores, it truly has great value.
they also offer a wonderful breakfast buffet which is included in some of the rates. they also have a fusion restaurant but we did
not try it.
Questo è un hotel fantastico. Ho avuto un grosso problema con la connessione internet wireless disponibile (inclusa nel prezzo) la prima sera ed è stato risolto in poche ore. Ho pagato 100 dollari per una camera al 6° piano non fumatori. La camera era davvero bella, molto pulita e sembrava nuova. Il letto era favoloso, la vista stupenda... ma stiamo parlando di Lima, vero? Non piove praticamente mai tutto l'anno e la città mi ricorda Città del Messico e Sau Paulo: grigia, grigia, grigia... Il ristorante dell'hotel era fantastico: il cibo e il servizio; la colazione, il pranzo o la cena. Ma questo non è un grande aspetto positivo perché la cucina peruviana è una delle migliori e meno costose del mondo. Provate il seviche (frutti di mare crudi marinati), il taco-taco (incredibilmente gustosi) e il buffet criollo. Potete chiedere qualsiasi cosa al personale dell'hotel che è molto accomodante (per favore non fatemi fare brutta figura...). Partenza ritardata e registrazione anticipata, servizi gratuiti, a voi la scelta.
This a great hotel to stay. I had a big problem with the wireless Internet available (included in the price) in the first night and it was fixed in matter of hours. I have paid US$ 100 per room, 6th floor, no smoking. The room was really good, very clean and looks new. The bed was awesome. The view is awful, but we talk about Lima, right? There is virtually no rain all year and the city reminds me Mexico City and Sau Paulo: Gray, Gray, Gray...
The hotel restaurant is great: food and service; breakfast, lunch or dinner. But it is not a big pro, because Peruvian cuisine is one of the greatest and less expensive in the world. Try the seviche (raw marinated sea food), the taco-taco (unbelievably tasteful) and the buffet criollo.
You can ask anything to the hotel staff and those guys usually comply (please do not get me wrong...). Late check-out, early check-in, complimentary stuff, you name it.
Buena ubicación y habitación, pero con un desayuno mediocre
El Prado es un moderno hotel con muy poco estilo y calidez, pero está bien para un par de noches. Está ubicado en Miraflores, una de las dos áreas seguras para viajeros (la otra es San Isidro). La habitación estaba bien, había sido reformado recientemente, y tenía acceso a internet inalámbrico (uno de los pocos hoteles que contaban con esto, en nuestra estadía de 3 semanas por Perú). Lo peor fue el desayuno, que era mediocre: terrible, zumo de fruta reconstituido y nada del pequeño bufé era apetecedor.
Buen hotel en una buena área en una ciudad más o menos
Después de terminar el Camino Inca, necesitábamos de los lujos de un 5 estrellas, y el Doubletree cumplía con eso. Nos alojamos en una de sus suite con balneario en la habitación.
Lo pasamos genial aquí. El personal era cortés y atento, el servicio de habitación era rápido y la comida era deliciosa. Las habitaciones eran de un alto estándar. Con todo, no tenemos quejas.
Sin embargo, debo decir que es un hotel occidental con precios occidentales. Comparado con otros hoteles en Lima no es barato, pero, como siempre, pagas por lo que obtienes.
Great hotel in an unpleasant city!
The staff here was very helpful and the room was large and comfortable (my travel companion has a diamond rewards card with hilton and I think this got us a free upgrade.) The view wasn't great but the bed was very nice! The downstairs restaurant was very pleasant and had excellent food, the staff and chef there went out of their way to make sure our meals were perfect.
Good Hotel in a Good Area in a so-so city
After completing the Inca Trail, we were in need of some 5 star luxury, and the Doubletree fit the bill. We stayed in one of their suites with in room spa.
We had a fantastic time here. The staff were courteous and attentive, Room service came quickly and the food was delicious. The rooms themselves were of a high standard. In all, no complaints.
I would note however this is a western hotel with western prices. Compared to other hotels in Lima its not cheap, but, as usual, you pay for what you get.
Good bedroom and location, but poor breakfast
The El Pardo is a modern hotel with little style and warmth but is fine for a couple of nights. It is located in Miraflores, one of the two good, safe, areas for travellers (the other is San Isidro). The bedroom was good, having been recently refurbished, and had free wireless internet (one of the very few we hotels stayed in over a period of 3 weeks in Peru which did have it). The worst aspect was the breakfast, which was poor: terrible, reconstituted fruit juice and not much on the smallish buffet was tempting.
First class hotel
The doubletree is an excellent hotel. The hotel is located two blocks from the main street in Miraflores and is in a very safe neighbourhood in Lima. The rooms were very clean, with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. The hotel had a gym and swimming pool (which we did not use) and a business centre with free internet access. If able to get a good rate, i definately recommend this hotel.
A nice place to sleep
I don't think Lima is a very nice place to visit, but if you have to, this hotel is centrally located in the Miraflores area, which is considered the safest zone in Lima.
There are lots of restaurants nearby, many shops and a department store.
The hotel itself is okay. The rooms are standard size, everything is clean and the staff is nice. There was also a business center with free internet access. In fact all of the hotel had free wireless internet access, so if you go there bring your laptop with you.
