“clean hotel, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is immaculately clean and conveniently situated about 10min walking distance from Plaza de Armas. We arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport, which was about 15 min from three hotel. It cost us 30Sol, which seemed reasonable until we realized that regular taxi fares are between 5-10Sol.

A small side room behind the lobby had two computers with internet access, soda, and free tea. We arrived prior to check-in time, and the staff accommodated us by storing our luggage behind the front desk while we went exploring the city. When we left for a tour of the Colca canyons at 3am, they provided us with a small packed lunch since we were going to miss breakfast, which was a nice surprise.

Everyone from the staff was friendly, but some only spoke minimal English. The other negative was that next to our room construction was taking place, which woke us up at 6am.

That aside, this is a well run and clean hotel that caters to everyone's needs.

charming hotel with good location. About 20 min. walk to plaza de armas. rooms are big, comfortable and clean. (Parking no so good - it´s really just at the lawn outside the hotel, by a pretty busy street. But they'll out up a fence, if you insist.) Breakfast is served in the "attached" restaurant and is pretty good. But can´t really recommend the restaurant - they made the worse and smallest pizza´s ever, and getting served took for ever even though there were no guests!

Hotel is good value. (Restaurant not)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Inkanto was a comfortable hotel at a great price. There were good amenities such as Hot water, phone, tv, fridge, and safe for valuables. The room was also nice and big with a comfortable bed and pillows. The hotel restaurant was good and prices were reasonable for a mid to higher end restaurant in Peru. Inkanto was about a 10-12 min walk to the plaza de armas but the neighbour was descent. The road Inkanto was on is fairly busy so suggest requesting a room off the main street. Overall a great stay... One of the best of the 8-10 places we stayed on our trip to Peru.

Room Tip: Request room off main street

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).

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.
