This could have been a disaster stay but ended up being up there in my favourite places I stayed at in Peru. Initially they double booked our room and when we arrived at 10.30pm we had no room in the hotel...however, they dealt with this brilliantly. There was an unreserved apology immediately and they had booked us in to a more expensive hotel nearby. The reception staff personally took us in their car to that hotel and picked us up the following morning having paid the bill. On top of that we were then upgraded to a suite for the following night. The suite (302) was fantastic and felt newly finished. Everything was pristine with a big bath, large comfy bed with lovely white linen, huge bathroom mirror, log burning stove, cheap mini bar and great views of Misti & Chacani volcanoes.
We were due to move on after two nights but after the service we received we decided to stay one more night. This time we were in a normal double room (301) which was more basic but still had the comfy bed, warm shower and great views...probably better views than the suite. The gardens were beautifully kept with so much colour and there were loads of outside places where you could sit, read and relax while soaking up some sun.
I loved the feel of this little gem of a hotel and loved the feel of Arequipa City as well. A thoroughly enjoyable 3 days of my trip. Will get some photos uploaded soon.
