A gem of a boutique guesthouse with just four rooms, outstanding service and that hard to find ‘home away from home feel’.
The Quinta Miraflores boutique hotel is part of the ‘Quinta Leuro’, a small block of private houses in the heart of the Miraflores district in Lima. This block of colourful houses stands proud in the midst of tall apartment buildings and is a mix of neo-classical and Mediterranean inspired architecture. Quinta Miraflores allows you get a feel for old Lima and the way locals lived way back when.
Beautifully restored over three years by Italian owner Barbara, this small four room boutique guesthouse is a delightful option for your stay in Miraflores. We loved the little touches like the business cards in the woven bunny basket and the room keys elegantly displayed like art on a wooden tray.
The four rooms are all large and spacious with good linen and beds. Wifi, in-room safe, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities and private bathrooms are standard. We particularly enjoyed the bathrooms which were remarkably spacious and have free-standing clawfoot tubs, Victorian style high-level toilets and sinks with exposed plumbing giving an old-fashioned, luxurious feel to a modern bathroom.
Rooms are divided into suites and premium rooms and each is decorated with a different colour theme and furnished in Barbara’s classical Italian style. We preferred the suites on the second floor as they are larger and a bit quieter than the downstairs rooms. The Green Suite was our favourite and gets beautiful sunlight in the afternoon, while the Orange Suite is also a nice spacious option. The Violet and beige rooms are slightly smaller. Overall it feels like you are staying in a friend’s beautifully appointed house rather than just a hotel.
A continental breakfast is served in the room each morning and is simple yet delicious. Freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit and muesli and a selection of cakes and breads as well as fabulous Italian espresso are served on a floral tablecloth for a great start to the day.
The Quinta Miraflores is without a doubt one of our favourite places to stay in Lima. The staff is lovely and willing to help with anything you might need for very personalized service. Rooms are spacious, bright and airy, the breakfast is great and you leave feeling refreshed and well taken care of. Exactly what a good hotel is all about in our book!
