Miraflores Park Hotel by Orient-Express
Travel Blogs from Lima
We departed the Orlando Sanford airport at 10:20AM for a 6 hour flight to Lima, Peru. The 757 aircraft was staffed by Icelandic Air, who did a great job, feeding and pampering everyone. We sat in Row 2 in the luxurious first class seating, that makes up the entire aircraft. We received a goodie bag, with lots of amenities, like slippers, toiletries …
Hoy visitamos la capital de Peru, Lima. Comimos en un restaurante llamado "Restaurante Campestre." Comimos comida tipica Peruviana como pollo y papas.
I had a great day yesterday. Toured the city and found my favorite places (besides this amazing seaside hotel). "The Park of Love". On the ocean, designed by an artist, and visited daily by all sorts of lovers, young and old. It has a rambling mosaic wall filled with quotations by lovers, all in ceramic mosaic, so colorful, that you can't help but …
I woke up this morning in the early morning light of Lima, Peru. By the time we arrive last night (well really this morning early) it was dark and we were tired and exhausted from our day of travel. So needless to say we did not see much of anything other than our beds by 3:30 am.
But this morning at 7:30 am the phone rings and it is Aero …
The morning started off early since dogs and cats must be taken to boarding. And of course it decided to rain this morning, and not just a little shower but a hideous downpour. Was this really the way I had anticipated my trip of a lifetime to Peru to begin?
No it was not but, the universe had other plans for my adventure. So off I go …

Nice hotel, with good food, although we arrived after dark, and will be leaving for Cusco in the morning at dawn. We walked in and were immediately checked in, which was very nice after a long day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Miraflores Park Hotel by Orient-Express Lima
Toller Platz - ein Besuch lohnt sich
Wir sind in Lima nach einem Aufenthalt in Cuzco/Machu Picchu angekommen. Uns hat das Hotel wirklich gut gefallen. Das Zimmer war groß und gemütlich mit einem fantastischen Blick auf das Meer. Der Service war ausgezeichnet - an der Rezeption wurden einige Restaurantreservierungen für uns gemacht und Transfers dazu gebucht. Der Ausblick vom obersten Stock, wo das Frühstück serviert wird, ist toll und die Auswahl an frischem Obst zählte zu den besten, die wir gehabt haben. Die Gegend ist sehr schön zum Spazierengehen oder aber zum Joggen entlang des Ufers. Ich würde auf jedem Fall wieder in diesem Hotel bleiben, sollten wir nochmals nach Lima, sei es Urlaub oder Business, kommen.
Let's face it. Lima is not the prettiest place in the world. There is a fairly nasty diesel smell that hangs in the air downtown; cabbies are ruthless; and pickpockets are plentiful. These are reasons to head out to Miraflores, a trendy suburb of Lima.
Great place to visit
We arrived in Lima after a trip to Cuzco/Machu Pichhu. We very much enjoyed the hotel. The room was large and comfortable with a great view of the ocean. Service was excellent--the desk made a number of restaurant reservations and arranged for cars to take us and pck us up. The view from the top floor for breakfast is great and the choices of fresh fruit were among the best for breakfast. The neighberhood is excellent for a walk or jog along the shore. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I visited Lima for a business trip or another vacation.
We stayed at the MIraflores Park for two nights after flying in to LIma from San Francisco. We were checked in and in our room quickly. This room was lovely.. great bed, big bathroom. We had booked a garden suite and when we woke up the next morning we opened our curtains to find a real garden. Not just a tiny patch of grass, but a nice sized garden with grass, bushes, a comfy lounge and chairs, just for our use. It was a great place to sit in the sunshine and have coffee or relax after sightseeing. The restaurant on the top floor that serves breakfast has a beautiful view of the shoreline and overlooks the infinity pool. The food was excellent and we enjoyed lunch at the main restaurant. The hotel is located accross the street from a path that enables you to walk extensively along the upper part of the shoreline down to an upscale mall with shops and retaurants. Though not inexpensive, this hotel is worth every penny. Just loved it!
My wife and I stayed at the Miraflores Park Hotel on a one-week visit to Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu this Februrary. The trip was booked through Orient Express and they used the services of Lima Tours for most of the package. Since we never travel in groups or on a package, I was a little uneasy. Our arrival at the Lima Airport and tranfer to the Miraflores Park began to ease my concerns, however. We were met and ushered to our private transfer vehicle as we enjoyed a quick orientation to Lima's neighborhoods on the way to the hotel. The Miraflores Park is located in an upscale neighborhood by the ocean. Situated at the end of a small park and near a wonderful sidewalk that meanders along the waterfront (although elevated a couple of hundred feet), it brings you to a small shopping center that is perched on the cliff. This is great for souvenir hunters or those on the lookout for bargain prices on llama and vicuna items. The hotel itself has a very nice lobby with plenty of space to lounge and read while waiting for someone or for your transportation. The restaurant is very nice and has an outdoor terrace at street level. There is also a great bar off the lobby. The pool is located on the top level of the hotel and is rather small. There is another restaurant there and it's great for breakfast with views that look out over Miraflores and the Pacific. As for the rooms, they are modern and very well decorated. There is plenty of space and the bathrooms and amenities are top-notch. The service is probably the best thing about this hotel. It is friendly, but not chummy and is very professional. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone who wants comfort, security and a friendly smile. This is a hotel that would shine in any city.
Best hotel in Miraflores
This Hotel is the very best of Miraflores one could ever ask for.
The high pressure watefall showerheads make you want to shower for an hour.
The hotel rooms reminded me very much of Ceasars Palace. The service here is outstanding.....exceeded my expectations. The business Center offers internet access and a very helpful employee Diana who goes above and beyond to help with anything you could possibly imagine. Staying at Miraflores Park Hotel is a must when travling to Miraflores.
We liked this hotel very much. Our room faced the ocean. It was a comforatble size with room for a king size bed as well as seating. The bathroom was large with marble tiles, a large rainfall shower and a separate tub. We had access to the lounge/business center which had several computers. Staff in the lounge, as well as the rest of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served either inside or on a lovely outdoor patio.
The hotel was located across the street from a park and was one of the nicest settings that I saw while in Lima. It was a lovely, comfortable hotel.
The Miraflores was an unexpected delight. We stayed 3 nights in mid-September 2005, and returned for a day room before our departure from Peru. We used all of this hotel's facilities and services and found Miraflores to be excellent in every category.
A flawless performance
An excellent experience from the moment our driver met us up at the airport until we were dropped 2 days later. We took advantage of the driver services offered by the hotel which is very affordable compared with North American and European prices. The room was spacious, with a beautiful view of the ocean, and included all of the extras - Internet, mini-bar, robes and slippers. The bathroom was very large with a separate bath and shower (complete with an oversized showerhead). The staff were extremely accomodating. The dinner at the restaurant was excellent (especially the seafood) and our sommelier was very well versed in the regional wines. We were amazed at how affordable such a luxury hotel could be.
Pretty hotel, nice beach view, a bit out of the way
I have stayed here twice. The shower heads are superb but boy they must waste a lot of water. Nice saunas in some rooms. Nice views of the beach. Not overly helpful and a bit snooty. On a Sunday morning during the summer months, I was in the lobby in shorts and a button down shirt awaiting my driver and was hassled by hotel security for some reason - I am pretty clearly American looking, not Peruvian, was holding a digital camera and looked like a tacky tourist but not a threat and I was a guest of the hotel. This bugged me a lot and made me decided that next time I won't deal with the hassle of their out of the way location and say in San Isidro closer to the action.
