Pleasing hotel in a quiet and very good location

Posted Jul 7, 2014
In a city that can be very chaotic, this hotel is located in a quiet and beautiful San Isidro neighborhood , yet within walking distance to great restaurants and shops. Well appointed without being memorable.

Friendly hotel with customer care

Posted May 25, 2014
I really like the hotel. First it does not require you to pay in advance. Second you can cancel the reservation a day before. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast has wide varieties.

Rated 5 star hotel

Posted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: The district San Isidro was the best, close to good restaurants, walking parks, safe...excellent taste of Lima. The taxi was only 10 Soles to beach.
Cons: English more important in food area than opening the door.
Location: I liked San Isidro much better than Miraflores, appears to be a business district but felt very safe and only a short distance to beach etc
The hotel is nice but certainly not 5 star by north American standards. Restaurant service and food was not great, nobody spoke English, food taste was ok and time to get drinks was long. Pool was not open on first day, no ice machines worked on any floor and room was very small. Cleaning people came in too often for my comfort, not just once a day but you leave for a few minutes and they were there, not sure if counting the mini bar or cleaning but entered the room a lot.

Dear Guest; Thank you very much for letting us know about your experience at Sonesta Hotel El Olivar. We have taken note about our Restaurant staff; actually we are programming english lessons to all our staff that require this skill. Unfortunatelly; our pool was on maintenance during your stay but it was for preventive works. Finally, I would like to inform you that our staff have different procedures in which they have to come in to our guests rooms; the chambermaid, minibar, laundry service in all our occupied rooms and if there is something wrong in the room that our supervisor or housekeeper reports, our maintenance staff have to give an inmediately solution. We do not want to annoy our guests; we just want to provide the best service everytime. Once more, thank you very much for letting us know about you experience with us. Kind regards;

Great Stay

Posted Sep 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was great, everybody in the stuff was cordial. Our room was always clean, it had its own safe in the room with your own password so I do not had to worry about my money. The pool was great and the gym was awesome. The park right on front was calm and safe. Great location!!

Very comfortable in a great location

Posted Aug 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is very well located, in walking proximity of great restaurants and close to the business hub of San Isidro. I found this to be a great feature in light of the chaotic traffic of Lima. My room was very spacious and quiet, providing a restful sleep. The restaurant offered good food, and with the exception of the slow service in getting coffee, the wait staff was pleasant and attentive. I will definitely will be staying there next time I travel to Lima on business.
