Great hotel in perfect location. Set on different levels with internal court yard. Some rooms have balcony’s looking into the courtyard. Friendly staff, good breakfast only problem was no hot water for a shower when we arrived after a long journey and no one to fix the problem until the next morning. Pizza service in hotel closes at 23:00 , unfortunately we were not told this when checking in .

I stayed here over New Years 2020 and really enjoyed the visit. First, the hotel is beautiful, especially the courtyard. The rooms are very well sized and comfortable. The location is also very good right between a really nice walkable neighborhood and the Plaza de Arms. I think others have mentioned in the reviews about the Roman Bath, which is also really great. If you’re not booking a 2 hour session every day of your visit you’re just missing out. It will be the best $12 per person per hour you’ve ever spent. The staff is very friendly and even if the rate was twice the price it would still be a great value. Even the mini bar was reasonably priced! So why did I rate a 4 instead of 5? Well, I think there are some very minor things this place can do to become a phenomenal place. The hotel doesn’t have a laundry service, not a huge deal because there are several inexpensive nearby, but still. The hotel breakfast and breakfast service is a little underwhelming. I also don’t think they are utilizing the hotel services like the Roman Bath to the full potential, they really have an opportunity to put on an unforgettable show with an almost unique property feature. Also, outside of the hotel’s control there is some minor noise issues like barking dogs, which I found is not uncommon in Peru. With that being said, I will definitely be booking this hotel again on my next visit!

We absolutely loved this hotel. I would definitely recommend reserving the “Superior” room. The cost difference was minimal, but the rooms seem to be leagues different based on the reviews from others. The sheltered courtyard was a very nice, quiet, and relaxing reprieve from the hustle of Arequipa. We reserved the Roman Baths for 12 soles pp (4 USD) and it was the best use of our soles of the entire trip. The sauna was very refreshing, but please make sure to bring your own water to not get dehydrated. The staff was extremely helpful and had no issues with speaking English.

Good location, just a few blocks away from Plaza de Armas. The common area which is also the breakfast area is very cozy and relaxing while some parts of the hotel was under renovation. We had a room on the 3rd floor which is spacious with comfortable bed and a little balcony. The room was clean and cozy. However, the water pressure for shower was way too low and the water temperature was hard to control. There were limited choices for breakfast (e.g. toast, ham, cheese, cereals). We booked the body massage for an hour (usd 37) which come with one hour’s usage of the Roman bath facilities, including sauna, jacuzzi and a small swimming pool. The body massage was okay but the Roman bath’s facilities were a bit worn out. Some of the reception staff didn’t speak/understand English so we had to communicate by using Google translator.

We really enjoyed this boutique hotel which is located across from the Monastery and within a few blocks from the main square. The hotel opens immediately into an open courtyard, and then has several different floors of places for intimate spaces inside and outside. When we wanted to include everyone in our group, we sat in the courtyard, when we wanted just a glass of wine and quieter conversations, we could find an alcove in a myriad of places. Our room was spacious and even included a bath which I loved! We loved being able to have mate de coca available to us throughout the day as we accustomed ourselves to the high altitude. Breakfast was continental with several different breads, spreads, cheese, deli meats, and eggs. For the times you are just hanging out, they even have ping pong! I throughly enjoyed myself and would have given it five stars except that our experience with the spa was not perfect and I agree with a former guest that there are needed repairs. We enjoyed ourselves and relaxed the entire hour in the wet sauna (with herbs) and whirl pool/pool - but we were never given a towel and never given a juice. When we asked the front desk about it, they acted like we should have known to come to the front desk for the towels -- and we never received our juice but still paid the $12. Our room had a blind on the glass door looking out of the hotel. The blind was shedding white paint all over the floor and really needs to be replaced. Otherwise, we loved our stay.
