Summary


Pros

  • Excellent central Miraflores location near the waterfront
  • Clean, basic rooms with free Wi-Fi and lots of natural light
  • Great freebies: a welcome Pisco sour, buffet breakfast, and parking
  • Some rooms have lovely furnished balconies
  • Solid on-site restaurant and bar with outdoor garden seating
  • Cozy lobby with a big flat-screen TV
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Bathrooms could use an update
  • Some complaints about thin walls and lack of hot water
  • Old tube TVs

Bottom Line

The no-frills Bayview Hotel has a great location in the Miraflores district, within a few minutes' walk of the waterfront and Larcomar shopping center. The 24 basic rooms have old tube TVs, but do offer comfortable beds, lots of natural light, and in some, furnished balconies. The restaurant, which has outdoor seating in a nice garden, is a highlight, and the cozy lobby has a big flat-screen TV. The cheap minibar items, multiple freebies (Wi-Fi, an adequate buffet breakfast, on-site parking, a Pisco Sour at check-in), and excellent location make this colonial-style hotel a good value.

Location

In the hopping Miraflores district, a couple blocks from shopping, dining, and nightlife

Map of Bayview Hotel

The Bayview Hotel is located on a quiet street a block from Larco, one of the main shopping, dining, and nightlife drags in the Miraflores neighborhood. Larcomar shopping center -- one of the main attractions in the area -- is a few minutes’ walk from the hotel and boasts impressive ocean views along with a wide array of stores, restaurants, and bars.

Most visitors to Lima flock straight to Miraflores, which is widely known for its shopping, 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. 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.
