The staff at this hotel is terrible and very rude. They gave me the wrong room which I had booked. The hotel feels like a Holiday Inn because of the small lobby and breakfast is pretty basic. The rooms don't feel clean and are not in very good condition. The hotel has a pretty good location but nothing else is... More

Spacious rooms. Breakfasts good and rich (fruits and fruit juice is abundant) but coffee is unfortunately not good (they really need to find good coffee there!). Restaurant and reception area service is excellent. Only problem I found was stuffy smell in room when AC is not working. Maybe, carpet in rooms need deep cleaning. Best of all is El Olivar... More

I stayed there for 4 days in Peruvian summer. The room was cosy and a bit packed but, beyond that. Staff was friendly and breakfast better than decent. The best spot is the chick pool at 4th floor and the tables and views that overlook the beautiful El Olivar Park. Only caveat: the vallet offered me a cab that turned... More

Everything in this hotel breaths with quality. The rooms are spatious and comfortable. The service is friendly and professional. The restaurant is great hotel food with gourmet peruvian dishes. The location is rather convenient since the hotel is at the center of modern Lima. It is across from the Olivares Park, a beautiful green area sorrounded by mansions and buildings.... More
