We stayed for five nights, ten metres from the centre of Arequipa. The room was clean, huge and had access to the joint balcony. I would recommend ear plugs if you want a quite sleep as it suits you, because until the taxi drivers calm down (around 1 am) it is quite noisey. Having spent a month in Peru, Solar... More

Firstly I'd like to say they accommodated us very well when we turned up as the trip advisor app had a bug and booked us for November 20 instead of October 20! The staff were great about it and there was a room free. However, at breakfast the next day there was nothing set up for us, this was sorted... More

The young manager had some male friends making use of the common areas of in the hotel during all hours of the night and day while I was there. Every time I stepped out of my room to leave or walk to the shower I was whistled,... More

We stayed at this neat secure spot which is only a stones throw from the main plaza. It was a little noisy at night but there was a lot going on the plaza. Great hot water and wifi. The owner let us leave our bags there while we did a two day walk, when we got back our bus tickets... More

Jorge and Hugo are great hosts. Breakfast is served carefully by them and it is really good. Both are receptionists and they are really friendly and informative. The hotel is an Old restored house, built with witish volcanic stone from the "Misti volcano". The showers run hot water and the beds, matresses and blankets are warm and new. Some rooms... More

Showers had instant hot water and all day long. Very good value for money. Close proximity (walking distance) to the Plaza De Armes and the Santa Catalina Monastery.
