This hotel is very good. The view is excellent and the room is really comfortable. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The staff is really friendly. A bit costy but worth it. In general I would recommend it if you are looking for a quiet place in Lima. I really like San Isidro area.

We booked this hotel through Travelocity, the same as the Pisonay Pueblo (see my review on that property), and they actually had our reservation intact. The reservation desk helped correct a room error, we had reserved an executive room with...

Right in front of los Olivos park! Go for a run or a walk. Enjoy the walk before going to work or taking a cab. At night many restaurants just a few blocks always. Want the beach? Take a cab, 15 minute drive. Nice. 3.5
