Sonesta Hotel El Olivar
Ranked #18 of 230 Hotels in Lima
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2011

When a hotel chain is doing things right, the result is Hotel El Olivar: efficient, comfortable, helpful staff, modern facilities, ample and tasty breakfast. It's nice in that way you almost don't notice it's nice. About the only knock on the hotel is that it has an impersonal, conference-facility feel to it.

The long, narrow park across the street, with lines of olives and a variety of birds, is a terrific refuge in a bustling city without a lot of obvious green space.

We arrived after a 13hr flight.Originally going to stay at Miraflores but at last minute was put here.We we glad of that. A quiet business area we were upgraded to an executive suite which was superb. Jacuzzi ,sauna, wet room.We were met by hand made chocolates on the table. Because we were tired we skipped dinner ,but the menu looked superb.
In the morning we went for breakfast and wow what a selection. All staff were very courteous and friendly.
After a day out in Lima we returned late so we had room service which was very reasonable and the food was hot and tasty.It arrived within 20 minutes.

There is a swimming pool and gym on the roof if you require a swim.

In all the two days we stayed were very enjoyable an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Miraflores . Check out the walk in the Olive tree park.

All the staff were great and very helpful.Would love to return one day.
Thanks

I spent my birthday with my family there and it was fantastic. We got three great rooms, spotless bathrooms and nice amenities. Front desk staff were very kind and helpful as well as the maid service. Free internet service and excellent breakfast!!! The location is beautiful, right in front of Parque El Olivar. It is close to restaurants and cabs are always available. I will definitely go back to this hotel!!

Big room, comfortable bed and range of pillows. 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 Maracuja in bar.
Noise came from adjoining room and passage way if window left open, and was noticible all week but worse on weekend when new guests moved in and had tv, loud conversations etc.
Good range of english TV chanels if had time to watch. Never had chance to even see the pool or the japanese restaurant downstairs. Wifi included seemed quite reliable.
Several restaurants nearby and Novatel walking distance. Morning and afternoon teas for our meeting were lovely.
I'd say its a 4 star hotel and the list price seems a bit much (we were on a special rate as part of our conference).

Room Tip: Maybe higher up rooms

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…

Stayed here for business trip and exhibition held in the hotel's convention room. My room was great, overlooking the olive grove and the service to room, guest needs and reception. were good. No problems with the exhibition set up and arrangements and the convention room has a separate street entrance which was useful. Free business centre and wifi to rooms. Excellent restaurant and breakfast buffet. Hotel cars were expensive but location is good: Pyramid, Jockey and Larcomar shopping centres not too far away & range of other restaurants nearby. would definitely stay there again.
