“This hotel is grossly underrated, super luxurious and very affordable”
Reviewed 12 July 2009

It is located across from the American Embassy and is close to all of the good locations, such as Larcomar, Miraflores, the beaches and of course, the embassy. This hotel has an english speaking staff. The rooms are incredible! Whirlpools, cables awesome views from the rooms. The restaurant is great! Employee turnover is low, I see the same employees and they remember me (or the tips).

I stayed at the El Polo because it is close to where I wanted to stay and its not a hostal. It is located across from the US Embassy. There is a small shopping center around the hotel. In the middle, there is a general store where you can buy water, soda, snacks for your hotel room. There is also a McDonalds, Starbucks, and a few cafés. If you have a car, the hotel provides private parking underground.

The price when I called was much less than the quoted price on the website. The rate for my Junior Suite was 315 soles, about $110/night, compared to about 600 soles on the website. When I booked the room I just had to leave my name, number, and email...no credit card. I did have to call back a few days after to request they send me a confirmation email. Once I had the email I felt confident that they would keep their quoted rate, and they did.

The hotel room had a large, comfortable king bed. Clean sheets and blankets. It had a tv with cable, a desk, 110v & 220v outlets, and a kitchenette with microwave and a mini fridge. Like any hotel, be careful what you take from the fridge. I paid 7soles for a 1.5 liter bottle of water that cost 2 soles in the store nearby.

The bathroom was large and clean. Everything was very clean in the room and the staff does a nice job cleaning daily. The shower was the opposite of low pressure. It was almost too much. Plenty of hot water too.

The room also had a safe for your valuables. It allowed you to set your password when you got in on the numbered keypad. I felt very secure knowing that no one else had a key or knew the password.

I almost forgot the best part, the breakfast. It was a buffet with 4 kinds of freshly made juice, cereal, bread, fruit, pancakes, french toast, eggs, and sausage. The server came around to serve you hot coffee and to clear your plates.

Next to the restaurante there is a business center with 3 computers with printers. The computers ran a little slow, but were fine for checking email. Also, I couldn't get something to print so I wouldn't trust printing out boarding passes.

The hotel is not real close to areas like Miraflores, the central city, or the airport. But if you plan on traveling around seeing many parts of the city, it might be good for you. It seemed like it took about 15-20 min to reach most of the touristy areas of Lima. In fact, most cab rides were about 15-20 to and from most areas of Lima.

The hotel front desk staff spoke english. The rest I don't think did, but didn't need to talk to them very often. Overall this is a great hotel.

The front desk spoke english, but not much of the rest of the staff did.
