We were meant to have a room with twin beds, but the only one available when we arrived was a large bedded single...which we obviously took. At around 6.00 pm there was an extremely loud shouting type conversation (a la Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf) which went on for a couple of hours. Everyone in the hotel must have been... More

Very beautiful boutique hotel. The style of hotel is very similar to the whole sipirit of the city. It's small, cozy, made in colonial style. Located in the quite street, 25 min walk from the city center (a little bit far away) or 5 min by taxi. Rooms are ok. Not deluxe, but everything needed is there including robes and... More

This was one of the nicest boutique hotel's I have been to. They have a very attentive staff making sure your every need has been met! The wifi and heater's worked well and the view from our rooms was an added bonus! The only dissapointment was the breakfast. There was hardly anything available before our long day of hiking, but...

We stayed here two nights. The first night there was a small screw up with our rooms so they generously upgraded both our rooms to rooms with large bathrooms and a nice view. We stayed in smaller rooms the second night, since there was a night in between in Colca! I thought the prices of the food was bit high... More

A few blocks away from the center of Arequipa but only 6 soles away in taxi. Stayed in the junior suite wit my wife and kids and felt very safe. Nice big bathroom with hot water (although the water pressure might be a bit strong). Grounds are very nice and restaurant looks upscale but haven't had a chance to try... More

Reasonably sized, well appointed, clean room with mini bar safe, heater and WiFi. Good sized bathroom with large shower. Good selection at breakfast including fresh fruit, cheeses, cold meats, hot dishes, nice cookies and fresh omelettes etc. on request. Located in a residential street outside the main tourist area, which is much quieter and nicer than the city centre, but... More

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...
