The hotel itself meets the strictest Western European standards. The decor is nice, room was spotless and in very good condition. The staff was always helpful and with the exception of the cleaning crew, speaks good English. Particular praise I have to give to the hotel restaurant which offers absolutely fantastic food.

The hotel and its accommodations were very pleasant and clean, but the highlights of the Hotel Sonesta are the friendliness and helpfulness of its staff and then the ceviche in the restaurant.

The great value I find of this hotel is its location in San Isidro. It´s located in front of a 400 year-old Olive tree park, in a quiet residential neighborhood. It´s great to walk through the park and very safe. There are numerous great restaurants closeby. A premier Peruvian restaurants, Astrid & Gastón, is maybe a 100 meters from the... More

Hotel is nice in a quiet residential area, there are a few restaurants within walking distance but you pretty much have to take a taxi to everywhere, at least taxi is reasonable with fixed price. There is a pool on our floor but looks like more for hanging out than swimming.

A very comfortable hotel. Small, but well appointed. We stayed on a tour and were very satisfied. The breakfast was tasty, with good variety. Free wifi in our room was also a good plus. The neighborhood is very nice, with good restaurants and services. Beautiful park right outside the door with ancient olive trees. A good solid choice.
