“Good hotel, not so good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Quite a walk from the central plaza, but a pleasant one.
Peaceful and quiet rooms although the other guests could be heard quite well. Restaurant was ok, the risotto was terrific. My pizza was terrible though! Quattro formaggio with only one sort of cheese (about 2kg).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Stayed two nights at this restored hacienda. They have lovely rooms, large by Peru standards and very comfortable beds and clean tiled baths. Plenty of hot water all day. Secure parking right in front. Short walk to the Plaza de Armas and all the attractions and restaurants. Super friendly staff both day and night. Excellent breakfast included. Hint: Find the spiral staircase to the roof for views all the way to the volcanoes.

Room Tip: 2nd floor not facing the street for the quietest rooms.

Although the property is not right by the plaza, it's only 15 minute walk away and is located in a very safe and nice neighborhood (couple consulates nearby). The room is spacious and spotless, and the hotel has is very charming with the decor.

Super bravo to the helpful staff (especially to Elizabeth and Theresa), very accomodating and professional.

The hotel is situated in a suburb of Arequipa, 8 blocks away from the main square, some 15 minutes away. You could not find more helpful and friendly staff anywhere. Good restaurant and value for money. Cheaper than in the city centre. Nice breakfast also. Large clean, confortable rooms.

We stayed on 2 separate occasions either side of a trip into the Colca Canyon. The rooms, facilities, breakfast & staff were great. The noise from the street is noticeable but as we are a family of great sleepers & it did not worry us too much. Some of the rooms would also benefit from the addition of blinds to make the rooms darker. We enjoyed the walk into the centre but taxis cheap & readily available for those not wanting to walk.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I stayed at Inkanto with my family, a group of 5 people, for about 4 days. Since I pay special attention to the hygiene of a hotel, I can say that this hotel satisfied my expectations. Everything was clean and proper, rooms were spacious, bathroom was clean and modern, beds were very comfortable, I loved the decoration of the room, simple but nice. It is an small hotel however I had the feeling I was staying at a hotel of the same range as the Sheraton, just smaller and not as luxurious. This is a good choice if you are in town to relax and acclimatise before heading to Cuzco. The restaurant they have is pricey but the food is nice. In Arequipa it is better to go to a nice picanteria (like "la nueva Palomino" you won't regret it ;). They have 2 laptops if you need to check something, they have also wifi. They are situated in the best part of Arequipa, Vallecito is like the upper site if you are in Arequipa so it is quite safe and nice to walk around.
In resume the price-quality relation is well balanced.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Hotel appearance was impressive but noise level from street traffic and lobby was unacceptable. Service was hit/miss depending on staff working. Included breakfast was good, if one ignored the alleged coffee ( no-one in this country seems to know how to make real coffee!) Location was a tolerable 5 blocks from main plaza but there are very few restaurants in the area immediately surrounding the hotel.
Dinner offered at hotel's dining room was rather basic considering the price- once was enough, too many other places near main square to give this place a second chance.

Room Tip: avoid rooms at front of building- road noise is terrible
