The Duo is a smallish boutique hotel in the San Isidro district of Lima, Peru. Although not some mega luxury hotel, this place is excellent! Our rate was around $120 USD and that is extraordinary value. The hotel itself is very close to the Lima Golf Club and is an more of an upscale part of Lima. It's interesting however, because it is on a small residential side street which makes it very quiet at night but still very close to a main road.
There are taxis everywhere along the main road and if you just want one in front of the hotel, they will grab one for you immediately. Getting to central Lima takes about 15 min due to traffic and Barranco is closer.
The hotel itself is small and quaint, yet it has a lot to offer. First, the rooms (although not made of solid hardwood and marble, etc (haha) are perfectly clean and comfortable. We found the bed to be great and there is a mini bar. Outside in the back, they have a small plunge pool which is really great because Lima is hot and it never rains.
The single best part of the Duo hotel however, is it's staff! There is one thing to have a smile on your face and assist your guests, it is another thing to well above and beyond like the Duo did for us! They worked feverishly with DHL and Fed Ex to help us ship a package home to the USA. They were so pleasant and accommodating. One of us (me) was sick with a minor stomach virus I got earlier in the trip and they tried to help as much as they could. They suggested a great restaurant called Jose Antonio which is about a 10 mi walk. The place is great and food was awesome.
Overall, (Not if) bug when we. One back to Peru to hit Cuzco and Macchu Picchu we will definitely come back to the Duo when we are in Lima! Do yourself a favor and god there. They provide a great service and treat you like friends/family.
