Nice amenities, Maid service very good, room was always spotless (but even though I was trying to reduce water usage by not having my towels and linen's changed too often, this was ignored) . Front desk staff and concierge helpful, although the front desk staff did seem too busy sometimes. Good Pisco...

This hotel has 2 main attractions: 1) Service and 2) Restaurant. People are really kind to attend your needs. Restaurant employees are not only nice but also very professional. You must try: “sopa criolla”; “Lomo saltado”; “tiraditos”. I forgot a third attraction: very nice location in front of the nice park El Olivar...nice to walk at any time…

I stayed at the Sonesta for business, for a whole week. Most comments you will find here are correct: the building is nice, the park is superb, there are a few nice restaurants around. But what defines a hotel is not the building or its location, but its levels of service, and here, the Sonesta is below standards, and has...
