Reviewed August 31, 2017

The property/setting is in Miraflores, the second most affluence district of Lima. A very safe district where one can roam day or evening. The building, is non distinct and does not even have markings (due to security issues??). Location is very good, with the ability to walk to a variety of local sites (i.e. Parque Kennedy, Cat/ Dog Park, etc.). If up for walking, even a stroll to the ocean is possible.
As with all my reviews, I will attempt to detail the top 3/bottom 3 attributes of the hotel. In addition, see my Money tips and rambling thoughts.
Top Three attributes
1-Staff. The staff is extremely accommodative. The proprietors (Rafael & Pillar) catered to absolutely every need. The airport pickups were flawless and other arrangements were met without any hesitation. When dealing with a variety of properties in the country, I found it difficult to get replies to e-mails, but this was not the case with this property (very prompt). Cab ride arrangement, clear and known price (up front). On the language front , they do try their best to accommodate non Spanish dialects. I believe that one of their sons (Diego), is fluent in English and he is very helpful if present;
2-Location. As mentioned, the property is in a very nice Lima district. Close to the Indian/Peruvian markets, Food markets, Parque Kennedy, etc. Excellent restaurants (i.e. Las Tejas/others) are near also. Beware of some of the Italian restaurants. Being Italian, some were very poor in quality (but hey, you’re not in Italia!). Having stated that, you may want to consider elsewhere if you desire to be located more close to the old part of town (i.e. Plaza Mayor – 20 mins by cab);
3-Breakfast. Very basic, but enough to enable you to get a jump on the day. Standard fare each day, and not a great selection (i.e. bread rolls, eggs, jam, juice). We did not ask (same very day), but other options may be available due to diet restrictions?
Bottom Three attributes
1-Street noise. (I.e. specifically, the noise in room 201). For us, our sleep was disrupted due to the traffic. In Peru, drivers typically hit their horns 10 times prior to finishing their first cup of coffee! If you get this room, you may want to specifically ask for other rooms in the back if you are a light sleeper. We had two legs on our trip, and were put into one of the back rooms, and it was quiet there. But this is a warning.
2-Commmunication. Communication with staff may be a challenge if you don’t have rudimentary Spanish skills. Do not expect translations, but staff tries their best. We were able to ascertain cab rides, get simple advice, etc., just with our attempts. But just be aware.
3-Rooms are no frills. You do get Wi-Fi, a TV and basic bed, but don’t expect a great deal more. Grounds (being in the city), are not noteworthy.
Note: Inn only would accept cash (USD or Soles).
In summary, a basic Inn that caters to your needs. Is not the Marriot, but we found the atmosphere safe and accommodative?
Money Tip-In most large cities, USD or Soles can be used for most transactions. In the larger cities, most banks give you the option of withdrawing in Soles or USD. When in the boonies, you may want to stick with the country currency (Soles). It is odd, that given the fluctuations in the translations from the USD to Soles, some vendors don’t keep up with the currency exchange and you can work that to your advantage. OH, VERY IMPORTANT. If you arrive with USD, make sure that the bills are crisp and clean. Most of the folks we dealt with, would NOT accept torn or excessively worn bills. Of course, they would accept Soles that are practically rags.
Now some rambling thoughts. If you fancy to go to Machu Picihu and walk/hike any of the trail (or anywhere near Hidroelectrica - Aguas Calientas), BEWARE of the insects. They easily drink insecticide and move on to you! Want to try a biking/culinary experience in Lima, you can’t beat the Huarique Bike Team. If going to Cusco, the Tika Wasi Casa Boutique is recommended. Eating Cuuy? not much meat. Alpaca steaks (for the carnivores) is worth trying. Airport lines are atrocious. This is partly because, everyone (mostly large) check in bags! Huge variation in price, for same cab routes.
To you and yours, happy and safe travels. If hope this is helpful. 260817

The rooms are clean and comfortable, though not large. No problems with the bathroom. The front desk staff is friendly, and let me store bags with them for a few hours after check-out. Breakfast isn't a buffet, it's served on a tray, with good portions and tasty food.
The airport transfer was well worth the 20 USD -- the driver was waiting when I arrived, professional, and drove well (especially considering the crazy drivers in Lima).
A warning: I asked the front desk to call me a taxi to the airport, and they didn't tell me the price before I got in the taxi. It turned out to be much more expensive than I was expecting (almost 100 soles) and if I had known I would have called an Uber instead.

No hot water for shower. Bare lightbulb in ceiling. We didn't spend the night, just the day until 10pm until we left for airport. Adequate for resting and leaving luggage. Overcharged for taxi. But $40. Meh. Cash only prepay.

Staying at this inn almost feels like staying with family in Lima. Very friendly, accommodating owners! The location is a 5-10 minute walk from Parque Kennedy, from which you can rent a bike or bus and go anywhere in the city. The breakfast is very large and filling, and is served personally rather than buffet-style. As said elsewhere, the showers were hot when necessary. Great value for what was provided.

Friendly welcome although we checked in after midnight. The room and bathroom were clean and functional. Miraflores Inn is located a short walk from Parquet Kennedy. Good restaurants are all in the neighbourhood.
