Stayed three times in Faraona during stopovers in Lima in August 2013.
Hotel is close to Parque Kennedy/Miraflores city hall. 10 Minutes walk brings you to Larcomar shopping complex at the seaside. All kinds of shops within walking distance, also banks and various restaurants. They have a small restaurant with local dishes, which we tried twice, found the food quite tasty. Also small bar. Pool (very small) and coffee bar on the top floor, not operating during (Southern) winter. Breakfast buffet starts quite early (convenient if you are on an early flight/bus ride), however, with limited choice. No problem to leave bags here until you return. Staff - reception, porters, waiters - friendly and competent. Used them to reserve dinner in restaurants and ask for taxis. Rooms rather small, but well kept and clean, with fridge/minibar, safe deposit box, bathroom well equipped. Bed small and hard mattresses in all three rooms we had.
Major shortcoming is that the rooms (all of them, in various degrees) are quite noisy. Some have wooden doors to adjacent rooms, making you hear every sound of this room as it were in your own room. Windows are single-glass windows that can not be closed tight, so that all kinds of street noises come up. If you have a room on the side of the main road, street noise is almost permanent.
While we can not give any other recommendation for the area, we would recommend Faraona only if you do not have problems with noise. If possible, ask for a room on the entrance side (small street) and without door to the neighboring room.
Apart from that, good value for money.
