Lima, Peru is a city not to be missed. Many will visit either before or after Cuzco (since Lima is the city most international travelers fly in and out of when visiting Peru). We came straight from Cuzco and I was incredibly sick from the altitude. What I needed in Lima was relaxation and rejuvenation.
We stayed at Casa Andina Premium in Miraflores and it was exactly what we needed. Walking into this beautiful hotel we were greeted with a traditional Peruvian (non-alcoholic) drink in the lobby as the staff helped us check in (they even highlighted lunch and shopping recommendations on a map for us to start our time in Lima!)
This hotel is located in the incredible Miraflores neighborhood. This is the most ideal place in Lima to stay. It’s only a few blocks from the famous Parque Kennedy and a 15-minute walk to the ocean and Larcomar. The food options are endless. One of our favorite casual restaurants, La Lucha, is located just a few minutes from Casa Andina. It was wonderful to stay somewhere so central and be able to walk wherever we needed to go.
Our first day in Lima we needed a lot of rest to heal from the altitude sickness in Cuzco. I couldn’t ask for a better hotel room to do so. I’m not kidding when I say it is the most comfortable hotel bed we may have ever stayed in– and the view makes it that much better! Coming home from exploring the town, pulling on the soft white robe and climbing into bed made this feel like a vacation on our vacation.
When we travel we usually like to explore the city we are in for a few hours at a time and rest in between so we don’t get burnt out. At Casa Andina Premium we loved heading to the pool after our morning adventures and to the lobby bar after our afternoon adventures.
For anything you would be looking for in a hotel, Casa Andina has it. With a stunning spa, fitness center, incredible restaurant, ideal location and the most friendly staff you could meet– we know we will be staying here again when we come back to Lima.
