Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Basic, generic room decor
  • Bathrooms have old fixtures and worn towels
  • Rooms facing the courtyard are a bit dark
  • Slightly subpar breakfast

Bottom Line

San Blas is a small mid-range property located in northern Miraflores, close to shopping, dining and attractions. It has 38 basic but clean rooms with generic contemporary decor, a tiny average restaurant, and a few computers in a hallway. There’s no fitness center or pool, but the flat-screen TVs, Jacuzzi tubs (in Executive rooms), and free Wi-Fi make this one of the best picks for the value in Lima.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In northern Miraflores, a short drive from major attractions, shopping, and dining

The San Blas is located on a busy boulevard in the northern part of bustling Miraflores. It’s very close to residential San Isidro, and there are several embassies in the immediate neighborhood of the hotel. The area is generally safe, and the only remaining pre-Incan ruins in the area are a quick drive from the hotel.

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.

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

 Bottom Line

San Blas is a small mid-range property located in northern Miraflores, close to shopping, dining and attractions. It has 38 basic but clean rooms with generic contemporary decor, a tiny average restaurant, and a few computers in a hallway. There’s no fitness center or pool, but the flat-screen TVs, Jacuzzi tubs (in Executive rooms), and free Wi-Fi make this one of the best picks for the value in Lima.
