In the heart of Miraflores, walking distance from shops, cafes and galleries
The Sonesta Posadas del Inca Miraflores is located in the heart of Miraflores, within walking distance of shops, galleries, parks, and the beach (though a long walk).
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 -- 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. In general, the area is safe and is popular with Peruvians and international tourists alike.
Even though The Sonesta Posadas del Inca Miraflores is a small hotel with only 28 rooms, all units are extremely generous with what space there is. A double room includes two separate sleeping areas with modern lighting, comfortable bedding, city views, and clean marble bathrooms. The hotel has few amenities other than a mediocre bar and restaurant, and the Internet can only be accessed from the tiny business center (where guests are limited to 20 minutes of use). The prime location in Miraflores with nearby shops and restaurants may be the hotel's best asset.
