Whether you start or end your Peru trip with an overnight or two in Lima, where you stay can make or break your experience in Peru’s capital city. That’s why we’re calling attention to three new Explorandes-approved hotels in Lima, Peru, all of which are nestled in the heart of Miraflores, an upscale suburban corner of Lima bursting with dining, shopping, and tourist attractions. It truly is the neighborhood to stay when visiting Lima and these three new Lima hotels might just be the perfect complement to your overall Miraflores and Lima experience.
1. Aloft Lima Miraflores
- 164 rooms spread among 10 floors
- Located 14 miles from the Jorge Chávez International Airport
As the first Aloft in Peru, this Lima hotel offers a fresh take on the more traditional chain hotel environment through its bold and stylish design, tech-forward features, and buzzing social spaces. We wouldn’t be surprised if it quickly finds itself on a “best hotels in Lima” list soon. Its location in the heart of Miraflores means many of the must-visit Lima sites are within walking distance of the hotel while its slate of on-site restaurants, comfy co-working spaces, and live music programming will keep you busy when you’re not out exploring.
2. AC Hotel
- 18 stories, 150 rooms, and 11 suites
- Located 12 miles from the Jorge Chávez International Airport
This well-designed hotel by Marriott is one of Miraflores’ newest. Also situated just a block from Larcomar and perfect to stroll along the boardwalk, the AC Hotel was designed with the nonstop traveler in mind. The hotel is like an oasis from a busy day’s travel itinerary with spaces to socialize, like the European-inspired bar and ocean-facing rooftop terrace, and spaces to simply relax, like the AC Library and your sleek guestroom.
3. Arawi Miraflores Express Hotel
- Arawi Express: 149 rooms
- Located about 14 miles from the Jorge Chávez International Airport
This recently opened hotel in Miraflores is a 10-minute walk from Kennedy Park and a 20-minute walk from Larcomar. It is smoke-free and offers all of the basic comforts guests will require during their stay in Lima, including a 24-hour business center, dry cleaning, and laundry facilities. A complete buffet breakfast is served every morning, Wi-Fi is available throughout the building, and every room has an air conditioner. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with sound-resistant windows and good natural lighting. We recommend this hotel especially for solo travelers or couples who are traveling on a budget, but still want comfortable, modern accommodations.
