The rooms are modern and well decorated. The location is great to explore the old town of Arequipa. The price is excellent for this quality of hotel. The breakfast buffet is limited but the quality is quite good although the bread was stale.
A few negatives to note about the hotel. If you room faces the street, it will be very noisy. We stayed twice and both times we had a room on the second floor and it was quite noisy, especially in the evening. And I wonder why the garbage truck that collects garbage at 11pm has such loud music. Note also that there is no AC in the room. Not a problem considering the weather when we visited but it might be an issue sometimes. Actually, our room was a little stuffy and we had to open the window to get some fresh air from outside but that just made the noise problem worst.
More important, wifi was very irregular and often just not available.
Specifically regarding one room, we had some "residue" in the toilet from the previous occupant as well as hair on the toilet floor.
Despite the negatives, I still give it 4 dots as the price is quite good for what the room has to offer.
