I recently stayed there on business for a few days. The property is in a wonderful, quiet, upscale neighborhood. The hotel is old, but the rooms and the bathrooms are large, quiet, and the air conditioning works well. The service in the bar is friendly and they speak English well.

I think the whole point of an hotel like this one is having a good sleep after a long day of work. So I'm not ranking it based on the great breakfast, or the clean rooms, the big beds, not even by the good staff that works here, but only by sleep quality. Honestly, I've been camping and in hostels... More

I stayed at the Sonesta El Olivar for a short week on a business trip. The reception and registration were quick, polite and efficient. The room is small but comfortable. Maid service is a little spotty but adequate. The restaurant has a good buffet breakfast and a large menu for lunch and dinner. The food quality is high and the... 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.
