Sleek, modern hotel with faultless rooms and a fabulous location for those on a budget.
Hotel Casa Cielo in Miraflores has become our new favourite budget place to stay when passing through Lima. Located in the heart of the Miraflores district, Casa Cielo is just three blocks from Kennedy Park and eight blocks from the Larcomar shopping centre and seafront. It is the perfect location to explore the Miraflores district on foot.
Owners Steve and Rocina have put their heart and souls into creating this purpose built twenty room hotel and it shows as Casa Cielo has quickly earned a strong following since its opening last year.
The hotel has a sleek modern, minimalist design that feels airy and bright. Rooms are spotless and decorated in a simple style. Grey, navy and beige tones with soft bed-side lighting are the perfect antidote after a busy day sightseeing in Lima. Rooms all come with Wi-Fi, safety deposit boxes, cable TV, wardrobes and a desk area as well as tea and coffee making facilities.
Bathrooms have good, strong showers and again are spotless. The courtesy slippers were a welcome, unexpected touch for a hotel in this price bracket. Staff is friendly and helpful and will help you book transport from the airport and tours while you are in town. Breakfast is continental, included in the room rates and served on the roof-top terrace in a bright, refectory style setting.
Colourful versions of the traditional ‘pucara’ bull found on rooftops throughout Peru as a symbol of abundance and prosperity are hung behind the reception desk adding a splash of colour and playfulness to the lobby.
The quality to price ratio of this hotel is second to none and hotel Casa Cielo is definitely one of our top picks for budget hotels under $100 in Lima at the moment.
Best of Peru Travel Recommends:
- The king and queen rooms with balconies are our favourite rooms in this hotel. They are both brighter and larger than the other rooms and the balcony adds a nice bit of extra space although it does look over the street so can be a bit noisy if you want to sit outside.
- They also have a large family suite available that has a king bed, bunk beds for the kids and two bathrooms as well as a lounge area which is great for families.
