“Very consistent and good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stayed at Tierra Viva in Lima, Cusco, Puno and Arequipa. All four hotels are very similar, very clean, staffs were very friendly and helpful. The price were very reasonable and the breakfasts were good. One of the staff at the front desk in Puno helped us to buy the bus tickets from Puno to Arequipa from the bus station without charging us any service fee.

Location of all 4 hotels are very close to the city center and far enough to avoid the noise.

Room Tip: Select rooms facing the courtyard or not facing the street.

Hotel's location was 10 mins from the main square. The overall quality of room was good. It was clean and spacious. Moreover, staffs were very professional. Had comfortable rest here and enough information from the staffs. Love to stay at tierra viva again.

I stayed at Tierra Viva Arequipa Plaza Hotel for 2 nights in June 14'. The hotel is very modern and nice. The rooms are very clean, good size and the beds are quite large. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi and breakfast in the morning which had a good variety. The location of the hotel is great a 5 minute walk to plaza de armas. It is also very close to Arequipa nightlife. When I checked in they gave me a room in the front of the hotel facing the street. It was very loud and I could here the traffic all night. The next day I asked for a room change to the rear of the hotel. What a difference, if you like to sleep ask for a room in the rear of the hotel. In conclusion I enjoyed my stay at Tierra Viva after I found a quiet room. The hotel is in a great location, near plaza de armas and nightlife. If I came back to Arequipa I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms are quiet in the rear of the hotel.

This hotel is very well located. Staff was really nice and accommodating. The breakfast was really good and nice. This was the best hotel I stayed at in Peru. I wish that I picked up a hotel like this in Cusco.

We stayed at Tierra Viva, Arequipa Plaza Hotel in April 2014. We initially booked a room at the Azul Colonial Inn (DO NOT STAY THERE! -- read my review Azul Colonial Inn), and after our negative experience there we grabbed our bags and set out in search for a new place to stay.

We ended going to Tierra Viva as we saw that they had rooms available online....from the moment we stepped in to the hotel our luck turned around in a major way. They were extremely polite, helpful, and welcoming as we explained our situation. They said they had a room for us at a very reasonable rate -- and then they helped us with our bags to our room. Great staff!!

The room is very clean, very big, and had everything you needed as if you were in any other luxury hotel. The bathroom was stocked, had a large walk-in shower, towels, hair-dryer, hot water, etc.

They have a complimentary breakfast every morning, and it was delicious -- buffet style and basic -- but they had a lot of variety from eggs, sausages, potatoes to waffles, bagels, and various spreads. Great stuff, and free! The hotel was also very central....it was maybe a 3-4 min walk to the Plaza de Armas, and all the restaurants, bars, tour companies, and monastery. The location seemed very safe, as we walked home at night after dinner a couple times and felt like it was still busy and safe....

Great central location, and great place to stay if you don't mind spending a LITTLE extra -- we were very glad to have found this place under our circumstances!!!!
