We discovered the mistake AFTER we had checked in and couldn't find the rooftop pool lol! Eventually we made it to the pool at el olivar!...

I spent a night during business at the Sonesta-Lima. The hotel is situated in a very posh residential Lima neighborhood. The hotel staff are very friendly. The hotel is a bit outdated but still lives up to one of the best hotels in Lima. The breakfast is great as well as the in-house restaurant.

We enjoyed 3 nights here as part of a Gate 1 tour. The hotel is in a safe location. One can walk to restaurants and there is a lovely park nearby. The staff are very accommodating, the rooms were very clean with tolities and hair dryer. 110 /120 volt electrical sockets. The breakfast buffet had the most delicious fruit

This hotel is located in a lovely, safe feeling area of Lima. Our room was quite large with two queen beds. 110/220 V outlets throughout the room. Breakfast buffet was not huge but definitely adequate. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

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.
