I have booked in the Sonesta. It is less expensiv and it is GF hotel I have booked a doubleroom. That will make it problem free. I also have paid my membership.

Fee. Everything 100%. I will PM you later.

Thanks David.

We are travelling around in other cities (Cusco and Arequipa) and I have seen that I can also find the Sonesta Hotels in these towns. Will they all be GF hotels? Thanks again.


Another ISG member just stayed there and got socked $60 extra each time he had a visitor. I'm not sure if he booked for two, or what the situation was. However two other GF hotels which are in the same price range would be the Sonesta on Alcanfores or the Doubletree on Independencia. If you have deeper pockets the J. W. Marriott is 100% GF as well.

In order to be in touch with me, you will have to pay the ISG membership fee. That way you can send and receive PMs.

We are flying end of September to Peru. I have booked all the hotels for our trip. About the problem if the hotels are gf friendly we have just phoned the hotels previously and ask them if we book a double room (2 persons) we can take girls to the room. Wellmost of them gave as a strait anwser. Mostly yes but only one girl, a few have no problem with different girls.

Aftre our trip I will tell you if the hotels kept there promises.

Cheers,

A few days ago I stayed at the Doubletree, and I had no problem bringing a girl in. I stayed in Lima one more day than expected, and I ended up changing my hotel to Del Pilar Miraflores which is one block away from Kennedy Park. I brought a Peruvian girl I met at Tequila Rocks and when I went in the hotel I kind of felt like I did the walk of shame, it had a small lobby with 1 doorman, 1 security guy, and one man and one woman behind the desk. The woman at the desk said she needs to keep the girls I'd card. She stayed from about 230 AM TO 630 AM, and when I checked out the next day I had no extra charges. I just seen there hotel policy when using booking-com, it says they charge $35 for extra adults, but I don't think they will charge. They didn't charge me. I'll be staying at the Del Pilar for another night soon, and I'll probably bring in a local girl I had met last week. So I'll see if there is a charge next time.

I booked the hotel as per David's suggestion. Did not want the hassle of an apartment for 4 nights.

Hi David. I need some help as my Spanish is very very limited. I had sent you a PM.

I at the Del Pilar again for one night, but I didn't bring a girl to my room until about 10:20 AM the next morning. I met with a girl I was with before at a nearby Starbucks, had a snack and a coffee with her and went straight to the hotel and the guy hat was at the front desk didn't stop us or anything. My girl was actually preparing to give the guy her ID card, but he just looked at us like don't bother. A guest during the day wearing decent clothes and both of us carrying Starbucks makes things seem more normal, but I talked to the guy a few times before, so he kind of knew me. Before I met left to meet the girl I talked to the front desk guy to confirm my taxi to the airport which is 67 Soles. I used them to book me a ride to/from the airport 3 times, it's 67 Soles, you can pay US dollars if you want.

The room isn't near as nice as the Doubletree, but a little cheaper and closer to places like Pizza Alley, Tequila Rocks, Parque Kennedy, etc. The rooms are actually a little too basic, but it had good consistent hot water, which the Doubletree didn't. I suggest trying to get on the 6th floor, they have a fairly large balcony, and he room had a portable heater. When I stayed he second time I was put on he 7th floor and it doesn't have a balcony, I could only look down and see the balconies on the 6th floor, the other lower floors might have a balcony also, but the 7th floor doesn't, and the 7th floor is right below their 24 hour restaurant, which seems very slow, but I did here noises from above once in awhile. The internet at both hotels where slow, I think it's a Peru thing. Using the internet while in the Doubletree lobby seemed to be twce as fast. The internet in these places makes it just about too slow to watch Youtube videos, unless you try watching in 360 P, and it still pauses sometimes.

I almost stayed at a hotel near the airport to be closer to the airport and a couple of the popular sex scene clubs, but I didn't. I'm glad I didn't because the closer you get to the airport, the more ghetto things get. Miraflores is a safe and nice area to be in. People in Peru are really friendly compared to a lot of places I have been to. No need to be suspicious about why is someone being so friendly to me.

As you may know, the cost from the airport to Miraflores is 50/ soles. This is a new, albeit modest, increase from the prior rate. You could easily find a safe taxi from your hotel to the airport for less than 67 soles.

You could easily find a safe taxi from your hotel to the airport for less than 67 soles.I'm sure I could, if I had more time to look in to that. But I didn't need to go out looking for a ride, and the driver had a pretty nice car, and wore a suit. Not that I care about him wearing a suit. I still try to stay frugal at times, but saving 17 Soles, which I didn't know I could, doesn't dent my pocket book. It was also my first time in Peru also, and I also, at the last minute made the trip to Machu Picchu. So I was busy making sure that went OK.

Not that I need to explain, but I was waiting for an appointment for a long time in the US. I was going to go on a trip after the appointment. When I go called and he appointment changed I had a time window for a vacation, so I planned most if a 6 week, 6 country vacation in just one day and I hopped on a plane and got started. I didn't spend my precious time trying to save 17 Soles. Now that I do know I can save 17 Soles, I'll remember to plan ahead for it.

Sure, I understand as I have been in similar situations before. I only referenced it so readers know the normal cost to the airport from MF. It is also important to note that not all taxis have the right licensing to enter the airport for drop-offs. One time, I was offered a low fare but at the end of trip, the driver wanted to drop me off outside the airport where I would have to carry my luggage from the street to the airport.

I took the Yellow taxi booked by the apartment owner from Miraflores to Airport for s40.00 each time. Both are good taxi services. Clean cars.

I stayed for a week in the Hotel Maria Luisa six or seven years ago and was mostly happy with my stay. I met a few non-pros and a few girls from Tequilla Rock (which I understand has gone downhill since then). Still, I like the location and the price is right. And at the time, I had no problems bringing in a new girl each night.

Is this still a good, girl-friendly option? I'm on a bit of a budget and would rather spend my cash on girls than on a fancy hotel or apartment. I'm open to other options at around the same price.

Thanks in advance for your advice. I know I haven't been active on this section of the site for a while, but that's simply because I haven't been in Peru. I'll be sure to report on my experiences!

Make sure you get a room in the back. There are clubs in front.

Stayed at this OK standard hotel for $USD 55 per night with light breakfast included. The hotel is well located in a quiet part of Miraflores only 5 minutes walk from the action. The room was a little small but the hotel was girl friendly (No ID check necessary) just book for 2 people when you Book. After speaking to the guy at the front desk they will cut you a deal if you email them direct.

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the Ibis hotel in Miraflores? I had planned on a short-term apartment at David33's recommendation. But things got mixed up and my office booked me a room at the Ibis. The location is good and I'm sure the property itself is fine. But does anyone know if it's girl-friendly? I might be able to switch it but it may be a hassle.

Dear members,

To my surprise after emailing to all hotels regarding their girl friendly policy.

I received positive reply from.

Ibis.

Parivana hostel private single room.

Hi hostel private single room.

All Miraflores area / district.

The visiting person is supposed to submit his ID to the reception.

Marialuisa hotel reply was vague, they are not committing anything, it means they are not friendly.

So canceling Marialuisa and I will be booking ibis instead.

Hi,

I just had an aswer from this hostel about their guest policy. They said if I want to admit a person in my room, it will be 35 $ additional cost.

I think this is in case of the girl staying the whole night. If she just come a couple of hours it won't be.

Thanks.Sorry I didn't see this your post in time.

But I guess the info will be nonetheless useful so someone else.

Close to the Airport, some 10 - 15 min by car (or taxi), is Av. Canta Callao (you can google-map it). There are several hotels and hostals there, some cleaner and better than a regular hostal in Lince, and the neighborghood, although poor, is safe. All of them target the P-4-P business so they offer short-time accommodation (3 - 6 Hours) at a discount rate.

There are three that I regularly use for dating some lady friends of mine (the best and most expensive of the zone) and that I can recommend: Suite Hotel (just after crossing Av. Izaguirre), Hospedaje Baltimore (in the same block) and American Suite Hotel. All of them have parking lots, an absolute requirement for me, and rooms with jacuzzi (jetted bathtube), also one of my requirements. They all are clean, comfortable and safe, their prices range fron S /. 50 for a matrimonial room at the cheapest one, to S /.120 for a room with jacuzzi at the most expensive one and all three of them take all credit cards. All rooms have private bathroom with cold-hot shower, cable TV and room service.

Here is the map and a picture (taken from google street view) of all three hotels.

They didn't have any problems with the girls coming up to my room for a few hours. Only one girl I met on tinder stayed all night. I was never charged any joiner fee. I would recommend that when you make a reservation book your room for two people, that you can always say you are paying for two persons in your room.

I spent the night at the Costa Del Sol (Whyndam). It is actually inside the airport.

I had a woman visitor and everything went smoothly. No extra charge. She showed up at 11 pm, showed her DNI to the reception, came up to my room for an hour and left.

This hotel is literally 5 minutes from where you exit Immigration and Customs and similarly 5 minutes by foot to the checkin area.

I decided to book an AirBnB for my upcoming trip to Lima. It's an entire 1 br apartment in Miraflores. Has anyone had a bad experience in an AirBnB, either generally or in regards to bringing back friends?

I figured it was a good idea because I may try to pick up some non-pros and having an apartment may help differentiate me from the average hostel tourist. But I could still cancel an get a hotel. Any thoughts?

General speaking:

Hotel Pros: Hotels have an easier check-in. With a hotel, what you see is what you get. Hotels won't cancel on you with short notice. Hotels have a concierge. 24/7 reception. Room service.

AirBNB pros: You get to experience the city as a local. Cheaper than a hotel in most cases. It is more convenient for a medium-term stay.

I have many friends that they rent their places, and they have them on AirBNB, I guess you could do it! Miraflores is a safe place! You won't have problems!

There might be a couple new hotels there but, yes, the map is essentially up to date.
