Lima is a huge sprawling city and there are many hotel options. Given the range of things to do with children in Miraflores, we have always stayed in Miraflores. The other option for Lima Peru Hotels with kids is San Isidro, especially if on a stopover as its closer to the airport. This is a “real” list of Family friendly Hotels in Lima, tried and tested by a real travelling family and NOT sponsored by any hotels!!!
This tops our list of kid-friendly Lima Peru Hotels for a number of reasons. Firstly, it has a large, warm, indoor heated pool on the third floor that is awesome for swimming on cold winter Lima Days.
Secondly, the rooms are large, some with balconies but all with big windows and plenty of space for a game on the floor.
Additionally of all the Lima Peru Hotels recommended here, it is really well located just a block from Av. Jose Larco, the main street. Also all the Casa Andina hotels feel like a very solid yet also elegant option. There is a small café on the ground floor (part of the hotel) which offers snacks, drinks and fruits which has been a lifesaver when we have woken up after a long sleep and wanted to grab some food.
They also have an excellent breakfast buffet with views onto the street and space where we could eat while the kids played

Second on our list of our preferred kid friendly Lima Peru Hotels is the El Pardo Doubletree. It also has an indoor heated pool, this time on the rooftop, but it’s a quite a lot smaller than the one at the Casa Andina Private Collection. Described as “al tiempo” the rooftop swimming pool is luke warm and one depth. Also, the pool area also offers an interesting view of the Miraflores area.
The El Pardo Doubletree hotels fulfils every need that you expect for a hotel of this reputation – its 3 to 4 stars with excellent service, and nicely but not luxuriously decorated. As an extra bonus the rooms are especially big – much bigger than rooms at some of the newer hotels, and this works perfectly for a family. Large heavy curtains, soundproof windows, and a bath in the bathroom are also plus factors for when travelling with kids.
The foyer, restaurant, and all areas are decorated in an elegant Peruvian style and like the Casa Andina Private Collection; it is well located, about 2 blocks from the Ovalo Kennedy.

The Antigua Miraflores Hotel, without doubt, is one of our favourite hotels in Lima. It is located a convenient walk – about 5 blocks though Miraflores quiet residential streets, from the central Parque Kennedy. Housed in a huge colonial building, it’s one of the most traditional hotels in the area, with a pretty rose garden at the front and an atmospheric reception, lobby area and breakfast room. We once overheard guests saying that this was their favourite hotel in all of Peru!
The standard and colonial bedrooms are older style, but nicely appointed and attractive. For those who like a more modern style the Antigua Miraflores has a lovely new wing at the back of the building, and rooms are larger, with baths. Between the old and new wings of the hotel is a gorgeous fountain area which complements the overall ambience of the hotel.
With plenty of character, and gardens, the kids have loved playing around this hotel.
Without a pool, this is about half the price of the hotels listed at #1 & #2 and would most definitely be our choice for a Lima Peru Hotel if we didn’t have a pool on our ‘non-negotiable list.’

The Lima Hilton opened just a few years ago to a lot of fanfare about being the new luxury hotel in Lima. It is a gorgeous hotel, without doubt, with marble bathrooms, and exquisite furnishings.
However, the rooms were comparatively small in the standard size room (compared to numbers 1 & 2 on the list) and there was no bathtub! Also, possibly being a little fussy the rooms were decorated in a dark
There is a stunning rooftop infinity pool – seriously scary as you swim right up to the edge of this tall building. The breakfasts at the Hilton Lima won points; they brought them to our table on a little buffet cart!

San Isidro – Other options for Lima Peru Hotels
I’ve seen these recommended on other sites and we have also stayed in them with kids. (Or pre-kids)
The Hotel Libertador is a really solid 4 star hotel chain right across Peru and you will definitely get a really good stay. With solid, utilitarian and clean rooms – big rooms and a large bathroom with bath, this is an excellent option. They also have a spa, which, if there is no heated pool, certainly “works!”
We arrived here in the late afternoon and had to leave at 5am the next day. Soft beds, and no noise from the street, plus the travel from San Isidro to the airport is about 15 minutes less than if we had of stayed in Miraflores. An excellent kid friendly hotel option!

This is a fantastic gorgeous old style hotel where you can step back to the days of colonial limenos enjoying the privilege of their lives in old Lima, just across from the country club and on the dress circle of Los Eucaliptos. There is a real sense of history and every embellishment you would expect of a 5 star hotel. There is an outdoor swimming pool (good for the summer months) and playground, as well as kid menus etc.
However despite loving the elegance of a stay at the country club during our pre-kid years, there was way too much breakable stuff for small kids, for my liking. Also, even as an adult the exclusive prestige of this hotel had me talking in hushed tones, so I couldn’t imagine bringing my “full of life” babes here!
In terms of things to do in San Isidro; You can walk to Parque (Bosque) Los Olivios (about 25 minutes) and Huaca Huallamarca which is on route. There is a Pizza Hut and about 4 blocks away from the prestigious Los Eucaliptos hotels.
