I picked Casa San Martin because of its good price (60$ a night, single room) and its Miraflores location.Very good choice. Most impressive was the level of attention of the staff, which was unique during my two weeks stay in Peru. Three examples:
1. The cold water and the toilet water were not running. I brought this to the attention of the manager (Lidia) who personally came to verify. It turned out a knob was off. The problem got fixed in literally 60 seconds.
2. I had some dirty clothing washed, including my favorite hat. I was told it will be ready at 10am next morning. However, my Lima tour started at 10am. At 9.30 I asked the hotel if I could have the hat earlier. At 9.45 I had it (the rest of the clothes came later).
3. They arranged for taxi drivers at arrival and departure, despite my very odd hours. The drivers were in stand-by 1 hour before the set time, ready to go at my signal. This is remarkable, since nothing else was on time in Peru.
A small downside was that the room furniture and decoration was outdated, but still functional. The hotel looks very clean, with a lovely inner patio where you're served a hearty breakfast (included in price). Lidia was very quick to answer all my emails, and her staff speaks English reasonably well (another rarity in Peru).
