Very good value for money in Lima
Nice rooms, (some air conditioned) good homey atmosphere, efficient service and assistance in English. Good and free Internet, as well as wireless coverage in the rooms.
The location in Miraflores is good both for walking in this area, and vicinity to major sites.
We enjoyed our stay at the Antigua Miraflores
My husband and I stayed at the Antigua on our first and last night in Lima. The hotel is very nice and quite gracious. A cut above hotels in this category in a large city such as Lima. And, Miraflores is definitely the best place to stay in Lima. Keep in mind , however, that it is appx. 40 minutes from the airport during busy traffic times. The hotel had sent a drive to meet us at the airport which was a welcome sight after our long flight and the long wait for our baggage. Our first surprise, however, was that the hotel was completley dark when we arrived at about 12:30 am. It seems that they were having a power failure ! tThey gave us candles and we were shown to our room. All was well the next morning,however, and we enjoyed our breakfast in their lovely breakfast room. Guests can order from the 1st 5 items on the menu which include eggs, bacon, tamales, or corn pancakes. Our room on both occasions was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The internet service was included. On our return back to the States, we stayed there again. Checked out at noon and spent a good part of that day at the hotel waiting to leave for our flight at 12:00am the next day. The staff are very welcoming . I suggest this hotel as a good option in Lima.
We stayed at the Hotel Antigua Miraflores in Lima for 2 nights in mid April. Per prior arrangement, we were met at the airport (after 10PM); it's 1/2 hour drive to the hotel. Our room was on the top floor of the original mansion; we shared the large rooftop balcony with 4 other rooms. There are 2 computers that are available for free. If you have reserved room with breakfast, anything on the menu is included. The wait staff didn't speak English, so we didn't know what the policy was until we checked out! Our room had adequate furnishings & a decent bath, mini fridge (not a minibar), overhead fan (no a/c), phone & TV.
At our request, the receptionist found us an English-speaking driver, Jose Casanova, who drove us around Lima for 4 hours, including downtown, Plaza de Armas, Miraflores, the coast, etc. Whatever we wanted to do. He charged $7. hour & was a delight.
He dropped us off at the Huaca Puellana restaurant, right next to some impressive pre-Incan ruins, where we had a delightful (& pricey) late lunch. From there we were able to walk back to the hotel (8 blocks).
We had reserved a table at La Rosa Nautica over the internet; it was a $2. taxi ride. We arrived early to appreciate the surroundings, the surfers, & the sunset. Our meal was one of the best we've ever had, w/ excellent service, food & presentation.
The hotel is located on a quiet street, but not far from a large grocery store, restaurants, & other services. We would stay at this hotel again for its charm & location. Small tour groups stay here, so book early!

Re: Re: La Hacienda.
Miraflores is a great location to stay in Lima - it's close to the ocean and also a quiet, safe area close to some shopping. It is about 30 min cab ride from the airport.
We stayed at the Hotel Antigua Miraflores and loved it! Look for info on the hotel on my Lima pages....
