I normally think of Hilton hotels as a reliable option usually in the business district of a city with not much creativity in terms of design. The Hilton Lima Miraflores blew this opinion out of the water! The hotel has a beautiful design, great location, and a standout executive lounge. Here’s my review of the Hilton Lima Miraflores.
Booking the Hilton Lima Miraflores with Points
The Hilton Lima Miraflores can be booked with Hilton Honors points. Hilton uses dynamic pricing so there is no set price for the Hilton Lima Miraflores. It seems like 50,000 points is standard for this hotel. You may have better luck booking farther in advance. When we stayed at the Hilton Lima Miraflores, I booked about nine months out and paid 35,000 points per night.
Hilton Lima Miraflores Location
Lima is huge and not exactly easy to get around. You’ll likely want to visit the downtown area at some point, but most tourists tend to stay south of downtown in Miraflores. Miraflores has a beautiful waterside parkway and is also close to other fun neighborhoods for bars and dining like San Isidro and Barranco. The Hilton Lima Miraflores is walkable to most points of interest in Miraflores.
Dining and Amenities
The Hilton Lima Miraflores has an onsite restaurant called Social. As Diamond members, we had our complimentary breakfast here. We were told we could order as many a la carte dishes as we wanted. We were also offered items off of a moveable buffet that they rolled right over to our table! This was one of the best Hilton breakfasts I’ve had for sure. We received a packed breakfast the morning we left for the airport since we departed before Social was open.
There’s also a small lobby cafe for a quick cup of coffee or bite to eat. In the summer months (December to April), the hotel has a rooftop bar. We visited in May so we just missed it, but we enjoyed complimentary drinks at the Executive Lounge. We visited the Executive Lounge quite a bit since it was well-stocked with hot offerings at lunch and dinner and snacks in between. The Executive Lounge schedule is as follows:
- Breakfast from 6:30am-11:00am
- Light Lunch from 12:00pm-2:30pm
- Afternoon Snacks from 3:00pm-5:30pm
- Light Dinner from 6:00pm-9:00pm
- Open Bar from 6:00pm-9:00pm
The lounge wasn’t very busy during the day (see below), but come open bar time, it was full!
The Hilton Lima Miraflores has a nice outdoor terrace with an infinity-edge pool. Other amenities include a fitness center and a business center.
When we asked about getting a taxi, the hotel had us use their car service since they said it was safer. However, we tried to use it two other times and the car wasn’t available. When we got a taxi ourselves, the doorman looked downright frightened. They kept stressing how unsafe taxis were, but I felt no less safe than riding in a taxi in any other city.
The lobby was a good size with lots of seating and a cafe. Social Restuarant and Bar was to the left when entering the hotel. Our check-in process went smoothly. Our room wasn’t ready but we were brought up to the Executive Lounge for lunch while we waited.
Hilton Lima Miraflores King Room
One of the things that differentiated the Hilton Lima Miraflores from regular Hiltons was the Peruvian inspired design. I loved how they carried this through this hotel, even in the hallways.
The room was not huge but had enough space for two people. We were on a high floor but did not have much of a view.
Like with all Hiltons, the bed was super comfortable especially after three nights in a tent on the Inca Trail.
In front of the bed was a TV built into a wall piece. There was also a desk and an office chair.
To the right of the bed were a chair and a small table.
Back at the front of the room, to the right when you walked in, was a coffee bar and minibar. The coffee and tea were complimentary but everything else had a charge.
Next to the minibar was a decent sized closet with a safe, iron and ironing board, and a set of drawers,
Across from the closet was the bathroom. The entire bathroom was tiled which gave it a luxurious feel. The bathroom was a good size but there was only one sink. Bathrobes and slippers were provided under the vanity.
The toiletries were from Crabtree & Evelyn.
To the left of the vanity was the toilet. I tend to prefer when the toilet is separated from the sink and shower, but this was not the case here.
Across from the toilet was a large shower stall. The room did not have a bathtub which was fine with me because I rarely take baths in hotels.
Last but not least, we had a welcome amenity of alfajores. I fell in love with these cookies when I was in Argentina. So yummy!
We had a nice two-night stay at the Hilton Lima Miraflores. We found the room to be comfortable and we particularly loved visiting the Executive Lounge and having breakfast at Social Restaurant. If you need a place to stay in Miraflores, I recommend the Hilton Lima Miraflores, especially if you are a Diamond Hilton Honors member.
