This hotel functions as a stopping place in Arequipa but is average rather than excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful and our room was spotlessly clean and modern. It did make generous use of the colour orange throughout and this was especially intense as the sun blasted through the thin orange curtains in the morning...
Major irritations were that it was quite noisy - despite our window being closed we were woken at 5am by hotel staff hosing down the courtyard that we overlooked. The bathroom was the absolute bare minimum size to achieve the space for a shower, toilet and sink and left no room for easy manoeuvre. Finally the (adequate, but not impressive) breakfast was served in quite a small (but very nice) room with a stone barrel vaulted roof. Fine when there were a few guests the first morning but when the hotel was full there was no space at all to sit and the tables blocked access to the food and everything got very chaotic and confused. It is unclear why they didn't expand the breakfast space in these situations to include the (freshly hosed) courtyard adjacent with a few extra tables - it would have made all the difference.
In summary - functional but probably better hotels available at the same pricepoint.
