Hotel Quinta Miraflores is one of a kind. With a great location in the heart of the city’s trendiest district, this beautiful 4-room boutique hotel is the the perfect place to experience Lima’s enticing mix of new and old. The owner is a pleasure to talk to. And both she and her staff are warm, friendly, and welcoming.
When the district of Miraflores first bloomed, it was filled with quintas. These are ensembles of residential units built around a private cul-de-sac. Individual houses within a quinta were built with architectural styles that recall the Mediterranean coasts of Spain and Italy. Quintas have become synonymous with Miraflores, even as modern skyscrapers continue to sprout all over the district.
Built in the early 1900s, Quinta Miraflores is part of one of these ensembles. Some homes are still inhabited by families who have lived here for generations. Meanwhile, the home that now houses the boutique hotel was meticulously restored over a period of 3 years.
Now, Quinta Miraflores is a place full charm where the beauty is in the details.
Tables, chairs, desk, wardrobes, and all the decorative objects you see throughout the hotel were handpicked from antique shops. As a result, every corner tells a story that brings to life the old Miraflorino lifestyle.
On a typical day at Quinta Miraflores, you can wake up to breakfast and Italian espresso served in your room or in the garden. Walk to the Malecon or cycle along the coastal cliffs. Sightsee in the historic center. Dine at one of the city’s best restaurants and return to the comfort of your room. This hotel serves as your connection to the local community.
Rooms at Quinta Miraflores include 2 suites and 2 premium rooms. Each is decorated according to a color theme.
The Orange and Green Suites are slightly more spacious. They include a king size bed, classic bathroom with cast iron claw foot tub, and separate shower with rainfall shower head.
Meanwhile, the smaller Violet and Beige Rooms include a queen size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower.
Note that the Beige Room on the upper floor does not have a window. However, in typical Lima architectural style, it does have a skylight ceiling called a teatina, which allows daylight to flood into the room. Remote controlled electric shades allow you to dim the light to your liking.
For all rooms, standard amenities include wood flooring, air conditioning, LCD TV, hair dryer, and a laptop-sized safe. You will also enjoy a mini bar, complimentary tea and coffee, and free WiFi.
We recommend this cozy, vintage-style hotel to travelers ready to explore Lima from a base that combines historic-cultural flavor with modern amenities.
