My friend and I had a really nice stay at Hotel Antigua. The hotel was great in many aspects, including location, facility/amenities/cleanliness, and service/hospitality.
Location: the hotel is off of the major street so it's quiet enough, but close to major attractions in Miraflores (15-20 mins walk to Parque del Amor, Parque Kennedy or Larcomar) and the area was pretty safe to walk in the night. The historic center of Lima was about 30 minutes cab-ride away with traffic, and cost 20-25 soles. Also very convenient to get to neighboring Barranco (nice and hip area, with good restaurants/cafes/galleries), 10 mins/10 soles by cab, or 20 mins walk. There are a few good restaurants in walking distance from the hotel too.
Facility/amenities/cleanliness: the colonial style building was lovely and well maintained. The lobby was set up as a gallery of paintings by local artists, and leading to a pretty courtyard with a fountain. Our room with two twin beds was small-ish but clean, with a window opening to the courtyard. Bathroom was also clean. There was a water dispenser in the hallway on the guestroom floor, and a jug in the room, which was nice. Free wi-fi throughout the hotel and 2 complimentary computers in the lobby. There was a complimentary breakfast in their dining room. It included coffee, fresh orange juice, bread, and one of 6-8 breakfast menu choices they have (from continental, standard eggs and ham to Peruvian breakfast with cornmeal pancake.)
Service/hospitality: the staff was friendly and very helpful. They have an impressive list of good restaurants, so if you don't have any place specific place you want to go, try the place they recommend. And the guy that worked as doorman/porter during the day was truly fantastic. He was a kind of person who paid attention and offered help before we asked for help. Honestly, I have never experienced that kind of thoughtfulness in Peru, or anywhere else I've been to.
If I visit Lima in the future, I will definitely stay here again, and I will recommend to anyone with confidence.
