Hotel Libertador is very good, and we'd definitely stay there again when in Arequipa. But it isn't really five star along the lines of a JW Marriott or Four Seasons. The front desk staff and bellhops are very good and very helpful. We had some issues with the restaurant staff - in the mornings at breakfast with an empty restaurant we had to get up and find them to get coffee. The breakfast buffet is average, but being able to sit outside by the pool and look at the mountains is very nice. Dinner was above average, although a bit odd in an otherwise empty dining room. We chose to eat out (try Paladar 1900!) after that. Rooms are very comfortable, luxurious, and clean. The bathroom is spacious, but have a combined shower and tub which I'm not a big fan of. The water temperature can vary rapidly and dramatically, but it is an old hotel (with both a lot of charm and some issues) so I can understand. Room-to-room sound insulation is great, but the doors let every tiny noise from the hallway in. We were once surprised when we could hear the people in the room across from us talking... through their door, across the hall, and through our door. Perhaps the most annoying thing is the internet. Fast enough, but not fast, but you have to log in every single time you use it. For heavy users (some of us run internet startups and can't avoid it) this will drive you nuts. Other hotels let you log in for 1/3/5 days straight. Some some issues, but I think it's still the best place to stay in Arequipa. A 5 sole taxi ride to Santa Catalina and Plaza de Armas, so away from the hubbub but still easily accessible.
