I'm sorry to say this, as it was a nice hotel, good value for money, and the staff both friendly and helpful, but traffic woke us up around 5 AM. There's heavy traffic all day and a bus stop just outside, and even though we had a room at the back, the noise was just too much. But if you're a heavy sleeper, by all means - this is a nice hotel. Breakfast was OK but a bit slow, we didn't try the restaurant as we found a very good restaurant just across the corner. Altitude sickness hit us as we arrived in Arequipa, so the uphill walk to the center was relatively breathtaking ... ! The hotel is situated on a main thoroughfare in an otherwise nice residential area.
