We stayed at El Tambo for one night at either end of our trip to Peru and found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs.
The hotel is located in a reasonably quiet part of the Minaflores area on a road that is easy to find a taxi etc and about 30 mins from the Plaza Major in the Old Town. The hotel consists of 3 separate buildings connected by the ground floor which makes finding your room from another a little difficult until you realise the configuration. The rooms are of a reasonable size, simply furnished and clean with plenty of hot water in the bathroom. There is also hot water in the sink which is a little rare in Peru!
The staff are very friendly and helpful and they have some great tips on things to see in Lima and the surrounding area. They also provide a decent little map showing the main sights.
Breakfast is pretty simple and the small dining room can get a little crowded but it's possible to sit outside if the weather is suitable. Wifi is provided throughout the hotel and is free and of a decent speed.
The rooms can be a little noisy due to the traffic on the road outside however when the traffic dies down in the early hours it is silent until the morning. We would certainly stay here again if in the area.
