Nice hotel in a good area of Lima. Good tasty selection at breakfast, we liked the menu, however prepare to have a long wait for dinner ! Pool looked inviting but when we went up it was surrounded by delegates from a business meeting having lunch !!!

This Hotel is in a very nice area fronting onto the park with all the Olive Trees. Hence the name. Sonesta is a big chain with the usual services to be expected. On arrival a lovely fruit champagne drink was a nice touch. No view from room and very noisy with doors closing and talking all the time close by,... More

Nice room, friendly staff. great breakfast. The restaurant food was good but the menu did not have a large variety.I thought their beef could be prepared better. The pool on the roof was a nice touch but the weather was not conducive to swimming.

I was attending a conference inside the hotel, left the conference room for no more than 7 minutes for the coffee break, left my stuff in the room ...as everybody else did, went back in... More

The Hotel is located in a safe area and the staff is friendly. Breakfast is good as well. But the rooms are old-fashioned in my eyes and you always have the smell of mothballs in your nose...

The hotel is located in front of Parque el Olivar which is beautiful. It also has very good restaurants walking distance, like Tanta and Astrid & Gaston. It looks old but everything looks clean and pretty. I would definitely stay here again.
