Clean hotel rooms with a modern decor. HUGE king bed with alpaca wool and silk blend blankets. Cable TV, Fast WiFi, Good Break fast. Blocks from arequipa attractions and great restaurants. At $65 per night for a king room this is excellent value even for Peruvian standards.

We stayed in four Tierra Viva hotels on this trip, and will do it again without hesitation. We booked directly with Tierra Viva using Trip Advisor link and coupon code. All rooms were similarly decorated, with large comfortable beds, very clean, great showers; they provided complimentary bottles of water. All hotels had a tea/coffee station near reception. Some nights we... More

Great Location, good breakfast and comfortable bed. Service was good, avoid rooms facing the front of the building, very noisy at all times. Asked to be changed the following morning and all they had available were more expensive rooms. Free taxi from airport to hotel on arrival.

I spent three nights at this hotel before and after going to Colca Canyon. It is clean, well situated and safe. Do ask for an interior room, particularly on a noisy weekend. The staff here was superb. We had a late flight back to Lima and were allowed to spend a relaxing afternoon up on the roof terrace with a... More

Clean, quiet and comfortable room (king size bed), ample with a great shower. The staff is friendly and very efficient. The hotel looks nice in the inside and unsuspected on the outside. Highly recommend it for business and tourism right in the heart of the historic center of Arequipa. Good light breakfast.

This is a decent hotel chain. We were so excited to see our big, comfy, clean, and warm room after days on the road. The shower was huge! And then we tried to take a shower. The cold water came out strong. If we wanted a hot shower however, it came out only a few drops at a time. Literally.... More

Tierra Viva can be a great deal if you get the right room and a poor deal with the wrong room that costs the same price. Our first night we had a very small room without any air circulation or light. The only operable window was frosted and did not open. Although the bed itself was comfortable, we had a... More

We stayed one night on our way to the Colca Canyon. The rooms (bed, furnishings) were by far the best I experienced in Peru. Service was nice and efficient too. Location perfect, near central square, restaurants, attractions. There was a bit of noise in my daughters's room which was street facing. Better avoid that.
