no kidding, there is no way this hotel got the 5 star qualification! how did they do it? rooms are tiny, with hardly no light, and decoration is nothing special. breakfast is a meagre buffet. if i were told this was three stars, i would have said that was fair.

Slightly off the tourist path in a more upscale neighborhood but not a far walk to the plaza or a very inexpensive taxi ride. Great friendly staff. Rated a 5 star hotel with 4 star prices. Roomy rooms with nice size bathrooms and sturdy beds. Clean. Great breakfast with high quality fruits and hot breakfast buffet. Restaurant food was very... More

After a long day travelling and sightseeing our coach took us to this lovely hotel in a very quiet area of Arequipa. The reception staff were highly efficient and soon had us settled in one of their very comfortable rooms. We ate in the restaurant that evening and enjoyed a quite varied menu with a very friendly and helpful staff.... More

We stayed at the hotel fo 2 nights with an intermission. The staff was helpfull and welcoming. The rooms were fine so were the beds. My only reservation is the restorant - boring, the kitchen sent adifferent dish then ordered. As our stay in Ariquipa was short I cannot say a thing about the location. One thing for sure, not...

There were few other guests when we arrived, but the welcome was warm and the room was clean and comfortable. It's quite a schlep to the centre of Arequipa but the hotel's restaurant served up a passable meal and the very friendly waitress was keen to please. A good overnight stop.

A minus could be the hotel is quite a walk from the main town plaza but it is in a nice quiet area with only the occasional dog barking at night. The room was adequate and clean. The breakfast was excellent even when we had to leave very early they made sure we had everything we needed. We ate in... More

Differently they has been exposed on a plaque in its front door, it seems more a 3 star hotel than 5 one. But it is a good place to stay in the city. Its facilities are brand new and well conserved, good cofee break in the mornings, large beds and clean bathrooms. It seems to has a swiming pool but... More

Lovely modern hotel - huge bed with walk in shower with great water force. Buffet breakfast with omelets cooked to order. Pleasant terraced garden and a patio and gym on the third floor. Coca Tea available free on tap in reception. Ariquipa is at 2500m but if you are heading to the Colca Canyon or Puno at 3900/4000m altitude sickness... More

We thought the hotel was great. Only complaint was that the room was a little cold at night. Good location close to some great restaurants.

The hotel is located in a residential area, 15-20 minute walk from the center. Spacious, very clean rooms, nice design of the entire hotel, great outdoor area (garden, terrace, grill area). We've had dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was all good. The service is impecable, the staff is great.
