Friendly staff, good food, great location in a very safe part of Lima; what else do you need? The rooms are comfortable, this is not the Peninsula, but it doesn't need to be. This is the perfect hotel if you are staying for business in Lima. You can pay more in the Westin Lima (fancier, not a better location), but... More

Excellent rooms, beautiful bathrooms, front of hotel -olive trees and beautiful park for walks. It is a shame we did not have time to enjoy the park in front of the hotel. Breakfast above average. Staff very friendly and helpful. BUT DONT BOOK taxi through hotel - very expensive.

Sonesta staff are attentive, polite and cater to the needs of guests in a comforting way. I appreciated all the attention and gracious manner of room service, restaurant and front desk staff.

A very nice hotel in the San Isidro area business district. In a nice relaxing upscale area and excellent restaurants nearby in walking distance. Taxis fares, other that from the airport, are quite reasonable and easy to travel about.

We stayed two nights in April. This is a very professional, well-run hotel. Our room was comfortable, quiet, and thoughtfully equipped. The San Isidro location is convenient and close to highly rated restaurants (including Astrid y Gaston), and the hotel itself has very good restaurant. We would stay here again without hesitation.
