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...

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…
