Hotel El Ducado
Travel Blogs from Lima
Well, it has been a lot of fun. Too bad we have to leave now, and we probably won't be back to Peru for a long time.
Alright, we are back at El Ducado. We got into Lima really early this morning. We took a very short break in the hotel, then we started walking. We walked to Kennedy Park. It is very interesting to see Kennedy's statue in another country. We also went to some arts markets. We ate at a place called Pepe's.
Then in the evening we went back …
We just ate breakfast at the hotel. It's just a few breads but they are acceptable.
So the hotel is super small. I think it supposed to be cozy but it is pretty noisy even though it's by a small road. The bathroom is smelly too, but it might be because of the high humidity.
Today we have a Lima city tour at 2pm. I don't know …
We just finished eating at Alfresco restaurant. The food was really good, especially the ceviche. We also got some passion fruit pies. Now we are going to back to the hotel and probably play some Monopoly Deal and Scrabble Slam. We will get picked up really early tomorrow morning for our flight to Cusco.
We just got back from the city tour. We got picked up around 2 PM and drove to a park relatively close to Larcomar. It's called the Lovers Park. We walked around a bit and took pictures. There were a lot of people hang gliding near by.
Then we drove quite a bit to Plaza Mayor. On the way we saw a few important buildings like the court …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel El Ducado Lima
Hotel sencillo, pero muy limpio y muy bien ubicado, muy cerca de Larcomar y pocos minutos andando del corazón de Miraflores.
My parents and I stayed at El Ducado in Miraflores after having previously roomed in downtown Lima. There is a huge benefit in staying in Miraflores in that you get to breathe the wonderful Pacific air, feel the coolness of the ocean breeze, and watch the lovely sunsets every evening. El Ducado is only a few blocks from the ocean cliffs and the popular shopping and dining center Larcomar. It is conveniently situated on block of Avenida Larco where you can shop and eat some tasty Peruvian dinners. You are also a few minutes away from Barranco which is a wonderful oceanside town.
Un hotel molto confortevole e pulito
Io e mio marito abbiamo soggiornato in una suite doppia. L'arredo era semplice ma per il prezzo non ci si può lamentare. Il personale era incredibilmente disponibile e cortese. Il servizio di trasferimento da e verso l'aeroporto è davvero una grande comodità, perché può essere difficoltoso arrivare in un paese straniero, non conoscendo la lingua e alle 5.30 di mattina. I taxi non usano il tassametro a Lima! Nel complesso siamo rimasti colpiti dall'El Ducador, per il suo comfort, la pulizia e il servizio di qualità.
An very comfortable and clean hotel
My husband and I stayed in a double suite . The decor was simple however, for the price you cannot complain. The staff were exceptionally helpful and courteous. We also found that the provision of free transfer from the airport a real bonus a it can be quite disconcerting when one arrives in a strange country, not knowing the language and at 5.30am in the mornng. Taxis do not use meters in Lima!.Overall we were very impressed with El Ducador, for its comfort, cleanliness and quality service.
Shop around for better
We found the bedrooms and bathrooms somewhat small and musty. The furniture was basic and dated.
Service was generally polite and helpful. A continental breakfast was served in a pleasant dining area.
Beware of the 6% surcharge when using a credit card. Not all cards accepted.
You're paying for the Miraflores location. Shop around and you'll do better for the same or less money.
The surcharge on credit cards we only charge on discounted rates. Meaning, we can give a discount, but the room must be paid cash. Off course it is possible to pay with a credit card, but at a surcharge.
Our prices show to be very competitive, together with free pickup services, breakfast included, great location, etc. we offer value for your money.
I was satayinf at the Best Western Embajadores in Miraflores Peru, I was getting charge about $90 dollars a night, when I arrived the service was great, but when I got to my room I was disappointed, I thought $90 dollars was too much for that I was getting. I was just leaving the Best western and Across the street I saw El Ducado Hotel, so I stopped by and talked to the recepcionist, I paid $40 dollars a night for a double, the room was just as nice as the Best Western, don't expect new carpet or beautiful linens but I think this hotel it's great for the price, and the location is safe, the continental breakfast was great, fresh papaya juice everyday, coffee and fresh bread.
Great location, great value
The intimate El Ducado Hotel, located just three blocks from the stunning LarcoMar Shopping Complex and the elegant cliff top Cisneros Avenue, is reasonable hotel has an unbeatable location, close to everything that's going on in vibrant Miraflores. Rooms are moderately sized, excellent bathrooms, very comfortable beds and the rate of US$ 35.00 includes a continental breakfast. Some internal rooms have limited views, but all are quiet, even front rooms on Juan Fanning Street. Very hospitable staff.
Very nice for the price
Great service, lovely staff, breakfast included, clean sheets and room, concierge. we were on a tight budget and it was the nicest of all the 'less-expensive' hotels we stayed in. We were impressed enough to reserve it for our return to Lima several days later.
