I am a business traveler and this hotel was so important and beautiful. The service is good but the room was disgusting. The humidity smell was unbearable.It's not a 5 star hotel! I will never come back to this hotel.

Spent just one brief night here (late flight from US, and early departure next morning), so can't attest to more than cursory review. Good, albeit dark, room, well appointed; terrific breakfast; attentive and helpful staff. Not what one would call a major 5-star property, but quite good.

I went with some friends last February. It is like a boutique hotel, nice location, not bad rate, but I will add to it something more to be a 5star hotel like a bigger menu service after 11pm, not only sandwiches or a bar opened at night/restaurant.

Excellent food - especially the Japanese restaurant and breakfast. Well trained and helpful staff. Comfortable public areas and beautiful views of olive groves in adjacent park. No fridge in room and water was charged. Would recommend to business clients and families for comfort and value

We spent two nights at the Sonesta El Olivar between the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu. We were tired when we arrived at almost nine pm and were welcomed with a Pisco sour. Porters delivered our luggage to our rooms which were clean and comfortable, but not long on charm. The decor was pretty sleek and modern. The bathroom was...

My husband stayed in this hotel every month for 2 - 3 days for 2 years. When he was finally going to Lima for an extended period (a few weeks), I tagged along. Not only did the staff greet him by name, but they remembered from his last trip how he liked his cappuchino. The real sell for me though...

My wife and I stayed here two nights while touring Peru. This hotel is located in a very safe area with a few restaurants around, but for the most part, anything you would want to go to is a $2 to $3 cab ride away. The staff treated us like royalty, knowing our name and were all very friendly. The...
