What can I say. I loved this place. I went with my wife and we stayed in one of the suites. Super romantic and the location was perfect. It's around 5 blocks from the main square but it's right next to San Lazaro square, where the city was founded. Besides the neighborhood is very traditional and you can take great... More

The location is quite good because it is only 3 blocks from the main plaza. Breakfast was nothing special but ok. The room was clean and towels nicely folded, even though I found the bed not accettable for since sheets were dowsized (see foto). Moreover the shower were a little bit old. Sorry, but no recommendation!

The hotel is not VERY close to the Plaza, but still in a good place. Not a lot of noise at night, but a little in the morning. The best restaurants are just 4 blocks away (bars and pubs too). Reception needs a little more training. If you are planning to go out, take into account that the hotel door... More

This is a very centrally located hotel and very easy to walk and explore Arequipa. We were in a car rally but there is no car park so it arriving by car - alternative parking arrangements needs to be made. We stayed in Room 301 which looks out onto a void and was noisy at night. There was also a... More

This hotel is very well located and walking distance from Plaza de Armas and all its attractions. Service is impeccable and rooms are very clean. Great breakfast included in the morning.The only negative is that there is a small park right around the corner and if they happen to have festivities there, it will be very noisy until the late...

Although it is more than 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas (more like 5) it is away from all the crowds. It is an easy walk to the old city. The personnel are wonderful and go out of the way to make the customer at home. Our room had plenty of space and was located in a corner. The... More

Located in a very pleasant, low-traffic and safe mini plaza appx 5-6 blocks from Plaza de Armas, this is a clean place with a friendly staff that speaks some English but look like it caters to more Spanish-speaking guests. There are some areas of wear and tear and to my knowledge there was no heating or air conditioning but neither... More
