4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Is a good hotel but needs to improve quality and variety of breakfast food. Buffet is the same every day.. only difference is meat by chicken next moorning. Same fruits, no celiac variety.. rest is ok, good attebtion by personnel there.

Overall I had a nice experience. This hotel is great for a quiet stay and away from noises was a plus for me. Great views from the top floor; amazing view of the El Olivar a beautiful park and small kind lake; bit different from my room view which was not nice to look it up, perhaps more plants to cover up will be a good idea, the Internet at reception was great but at my room was bit slow; and the pool was really good especially after long hours touring the city; wish more servers were available for orders drinks there. Again was a nice stay near the action but away from the noises of Lima ; definitely will stay again here

This hotel is perfect for both business and leisure. Its location in the business district of San Isidro, yet adjacent to the Olive Tree park makes it special, especially in a city increasingly dogged by traffic problems.

I had an enjoyable time and your staff is excellent. Room was comfortable, Bed was comfortable. All appliances worked. My room window view was of the inner building shaft, so not too enjoyable, but then again I only had an opportunity to see out the window in the morning.

Sonesta is a very cozy and charming hotel. The area where it is located is surounded with beautiful parks and great restaurants. And talking of restaurants- as much as I enjoy trying all the amazing restaurants in Lima, I highly recommend at least for once going down to Sonesta’s bar and trying some sushi made right in front of you- I was surprised and amazed how good they were! Compliments to the chef Jorge!

Very nice hotel, room very proper however a/c made a little noise even when it was off. Staff very polite and helpful. Breakfast very delicious with many options. Overall I will strongly recommend this hotel!

The hotel is great. The location is superb! I’ve been traveling to Perú for years. I’ve walked past the Sonesta Hotel El Olivar many, many times. I’ve always wanted to stay. Well, on this trip we decided to stay and enjoy the area. It’s not the swankiest place or the highest end hotel in Lima - leave that to Belmond. However, there is no better location nor any better staff. The place is so relaxing and the rooftop pool is a pleasant detour from the streets of Lima. I highly recommend the hotel. Do yourself a favor, get a park facing room, it’s worth the extra cost. Oh, and have drinks on the rooftop as the sun sets. Super nice.

It was quiet, lovely, comfortable, and the chef is top notch. What a delightful surprise this was for us. We just expected a mid range experience but it was superb. Much better location in San Isidro than other locations in Lima. Highly recommended

good service and excellent location; the restaurant has good main dishes but the menu could be more various; the service to the airport is too expensive and i suggest to have an agreement with a taxi company

We were staying there for business reasons. The hotel is very nice and has a personal touch. It is not one of the thousands of hotels of the big chains. We got in very late due to a late arrival of our plane. But the welcome at the hotel was very nice and friendly. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. The size of my standard room was more than enough. The bath was a little bit outdated but clean. I think that is even the only negative comment for my stay. The breakfast buffet is very big with a wide variety of different food. I ordered omelettes and I really can recommend them. The personnel of the hotel is very friendly, at the front desk, the bar but also in the breakfast restaurant. We did not eat other meals there, so I can give any comment on that. Just in front of the hotel is an big park with olive trees that are 500 years old. In the morning there where many people jogging there. I will surely stay there again, when I’m back in Lima.
