Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Short walk to the beach
  • Rooms are cheery with large bathrooms
  • Nice patio with a small garden
  • Decent restaurant/bar with Peruvian food and happy hour
  • Free breakfast and free Wi-Fi
  • Free coffee and tea in the lobby

Cons

  • Some complaints of street noise
  • Rooms are small
  • No pool or fitness center
  • Elevators show some wear and tear

Bottom Line

A mid-range hotel just a block from the beach, the Runcu features clean, bright rooms with large windows, flat-screen TVs, and colorful accent walls. The Runcu is a small hotel, with no pool or fitness center, on a busy street in popular Miraflores; street noise can be an issue at times, and the elevators show wear and tear, but the hotel's cheerful demeanor -- as well as freebies such as breakfast and Wi-Fi -- make the Runcu a good value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A block from the beach in Miraflores

The Runcu Hotel is located a block from the beach in Milaflores, which is a safe and popular area with Peruvians and international tourists alike.

Most visitors to Lima flock straight to Miraflores, which is widely known for its shopping areas, gardens, well-maintained parks, and beaches. It's one of Lima's more upscale areas and is a cultural center with theaters, galleries, and cinemas. The area is home to many hotels, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and stores that are popular with both tourists and locals: Calle de Las Pizzas ("Pizza Street") is lined with pubs and bars that are filled with teenagers and young adults (especially on the weekends). The beaches here are popular with surfers and sunbathers alike (especially during the hot summer months) and are a great alternative to walking around in unbearably warm weather.

  • 32-minute drive to J Chavez International Airport
  • 3-minute walk to Parque del Amor
  • 5-minute walk to the beach
  • 8-minute walk to Miraflores Central Park
  • 10-minute walk to restaurants, bars, and shops
  • 4-minute drive to Museo Amano, a museum of pre-Columbian artifacts
  • 7-minute drive to the Larcomar shopping mall
  • 7-minute drive to Huaca Pucllana, the only remaining pre-Incan ruin in the area

 Bottom Line

A mid-range hotel just a block from the beach, the Runcu features clean, bright rooms with large windows, flat-screen TVs, and colorful accent walls. The Runcu is a small hotel, with no pool or fitness center, on a busy street in popular Miraflores; street noise can be an issue at times, and the elevators show wear and tear, but the hotel's cheerful demeanor -- as well as freebies such as breakfast and Wi-Fi -- make the Runcu a good value.
