Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Spacious rooms with modern amenities and contemporary decor
  • Pleasant, small dipping pool in the sunny courtyard
  • Free Wi-Fi and buffet breakfast
  • In-room massages and spa treatments available
  • Solid, cozy bistro on-site
  • In a quiet, safe area in the Embassy District of San Isidro

Cons

  • Not much within walking distance
  • Rooms on the first floor can be a bit noisy
  • Most bathrooms could use an update

Bottom Line

The 20-room Duo Hotel, located in quiet and safe Embassy District in the exclusive neighborhood of San Isidro, is one of the city's more modern boutique options. It has a pleasant (but small) dipping pool and sundeck in the courtyard, a solid bistro on-site, and freebies such as Wi-Fi and breakfast buffet. Spacious and bright rooms have high-tech amenities and contemporary decor with pops of color. But the hotel is not within walking distance of any major tourist sights, and bathrooms need an update.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Embassy District of San Isidro neighborhood, but far from major tourist attractions

The Duo Boutique Hotel is located on a quiet street in the safe Embassy District, which is part of the exclusive San Isidro neighborhood, a mostly residential and commercial area south of Lima Centro, the capital’s historic district. There’s nothing within walking distance but the Lima Golf Club and a few beautiful embassies.

San Isidro is home to many upscale hotels, and is popular for its shopping malls and the quality golf club with views of the Lima skyline. It is mainly residential (especially the area around the Embassy District, located between the ocean and the Lima Golf Club), and generally safe, but visitors don’t usually spend too much time here -- they mostly stop (or drive) by on their way to Lima’s historic district from Miraflores, the real draw in the capital city.

  • 30-minute drive to J Chavez International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to the Lima Golf Club
  • 7-minute drive to Museo Amano, a museum of pre-Columbian artifacts
  • 10-minute drive to Miraflores Central Park and John F. Kennedy Park
  • 10-minute drive to Huaca Pucllana, the only remaining pre-Incan ruin in the area
  • 12-minute drive to the Parque del Amor, a romantic park overlooking the Pacific Ocean
  • 12-minute drive to the Larcomar shopping mall
  • 20-minute drive to Lima’s Historic District
  • 20-minute drive to the Cathedral of Lima

 Bottom Line

The 20-room Duo Hotel, located in quiet and safe Embassy District in the exclusive neighborhood of San Isidro, is one of the city's more modern boutique options. It has a pleasant (but small) dipping pool and sundeck in the courtyard, a solid bistro on-site, and freebies such as Wi-Fi and breakfast buffet.
