This is not a fancy place but it has everything you need; clean rooms, hot water, wifi and breakfast. The price is a bit too high, 33000 pesos for a double room. But the location is good and the other places close by are of lower standard.

The hotel isn't very nice, one of the room's they gave us looked like a dungeon the other one was on ground level with a window facing the road witch was very noise and the police kept coming by with there red flashing lights. Breakfast was alright but has space for improvement and the bathroom was awful.

There are very few hotel options in Arica, you either have cheap or very expensive (hotel arica) so we plumped for this one because it was recommended in the rough guide we had and we were quoted $48 per night - so we thought, how bad could it be. We arrived at the hotel at 11.30pm and immediately I wanted... More

We pulled into Arica late and were very tired We needed a room and there were almost zero choices We found this hotel and despite the hight price decided to give it a go. One look at the room and we were packing our bags back out of the hotel. If the room was around 15 dollars I guess it... More

We chose this hotel because of its quiet location, a few yards uphill from Plaza Colon and next door to Eiffel´s church. The front rooms in the modern extension have small juliet-type balconys with excellent views of the Morro. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Cable TV with CNN, but not BBC. Fridge Free internet in lobby/lounge but only 1 machine.... More
