This hotel was ok but in my opinion not as good as the web reviews. The Sonesta breakfast had pastries that were disappointingly stale and hard. The grab bar in the bathtub was too close to the shower head, so it felt constricted taking a shower. But the part that I disliked most was the lack of bottled water in the room. We have traveled to other countries where the tap water is not safe for tourists to drink, according to the CDC, and without exception the hotels always provided bottled water. This one did not. The San Isidro neighborhood is a little more distant to the restaurants and activities that we wanted to visit than Miraflores or Barranco.

I enjoyed the proximity to the local attractions. I loved the tamales for breakfast as well as the variety. some noises could be heard throughout, but there wasn't too much commotion. Thank you for a great stay.

Excellent hotel. The service, rooms and food were all very good. Couldn't be a better place to stay for business purposes in Lima. It was my second stay at the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

Very convenient for US business traveler. Has good business center and US voltage electrical outlets throughout hotel rooms (no adapters needed). Decent full service restaurant with room
service and buffet breakfast option. Considerate staff who removed all sugary minibar items when I said it made me uncomfortable to have it there and would prefer to have it all removed. Especially nice to have Bosque El Olivar park of olive trees walkway directly across the street for morning walk exercise. Many other joggers and police patrols.
