“Still a good choice”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

This hotel still has a great location, excellent customer service, and a convenient breakfast with good food and coffee. It is walking distance from small grocery stores, shopping, Avenida Larco, and Larcomar. One drawback is that the plumbing can't handle toilet paper.

Great to here that. Here in Peru, plumbing can't handle toilet paper because thin tubes. Is a problema in all Peru but you have a trash can aside so...

We stayed at the Mariel Hotel for a total of six nights. The location is very good across from an Inca market and near restaurants and parks. The rooms are modern though a bit on the small side. The bath is a decent size. There is a small fridge in each room as well as a safe in the closet. The breakfast is adequate to start the day. It featured scrambled eggs every day, a variety of juices, breads, yogurt, cereals, ham and cheese and of course coffee which is rich and strong. You can add hot milk if you like. There was sufficient seating in the breakfast area. The staff was friendly and spoke adequate English for this visitor. If notified in advance, a shuttle taxi can pick you up at the airport and the cost of that is just added to your bill. That was definitely a convenience for us. If you plan to tour a taxi can be called for you. There is also a travel company next door though we didn't use that service.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor to cut down on street noise which begins at sun up.

Stayed here for some extra nights before starting an organised tour at another Lima hotel.

Room was small, but very nice and clean (604). I was not disturbed by traffic or other guest noise. I had no problems with the hot water or lifts.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Good buffet breakfast and 3 computers for use.

Location was excellent and easy walking distance to Kennedy Park, the coast and markets next door.

Would stay here again.

We booked a room with 3 beds which is extremely small. There is probably only 1.5 feet at the foot of the bed and a small night stand between the bed. The room is extremely noisy with the window open. We can hear the taxi and car all night. So we closed the window the next night.

Wifi is spotty in the room but good in the breakfast / bar area.

The room is basic but clean. The staff is friendly and speaks good English. The breakfast is basic and adequate.

Definitely good location with walking distinct to Kennedy park and restaurants.

Thanks for choosing us !! Thats right, Miraflores downtown is a noisy área, is better with the window close and the air conditioner on. Triple romos are small, is better to book 1 King bed + 1 bed.

Little 3* hotel, but confortable enough. The room was small (as expected) but with all we needed, clean and with plenty of light. The staff was kind and always willing to help in good English. Good variety at the breakfast buffet. We stayed in a higher room (7th floor) and didn't have any difficulties with the lift or with hot water. Ideal location across the street from one handicraft market (with other five literally around the corner); can walk to Larcomar shopping centre (less than a mile away) and 500 meters from Kennedy Park. All sorts of restaurants in the area, including fastfood. Would stay there again for sure!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room if you're sensitive to street noise.

This is a great little hotel right in the heart of Miraflores, a relatively safe district in Lima. The hotel is within easy walking distance to many local parks and attractions and is directly across the street from an enormous market that stretches for several blocks. You could spend the whole day at this market and still not see everything.

Other reviewers have commented about the noise, and yes Lima is a very noisy city. It seems that a requirement of driving is to honk your horn every few feet and it is just constant. However, we did not hear much of this noise once in our room. It was quite basic but comfortable and had everything we needed for a 2-night stay

A breakfast buffet was included with the price of the room. This was nothing special but certainly enough to keep you filled for the morning. Service in the dining area and at the front desk was excellent. They were very helpful in providing maps and giving directions.

If you are going to hire a taxi to go to the airport do it yourself out in front of the hotel - it will be far cheaper than having the hotel call one for you. The trip to the airport should be no more than $25 US.
