Hotel Aruma is located in the hearth of Arrica, location is great. The staff is very helpful. We were very fond of Elizabeth (breakfast) and Pedro (pisco sour, diner etc). The rooms are kind of minimalist but comfortable and clean. The terrace on the roof and the pool add a plus, the restaurant has an amazing view on the Morro.

Loved this hotel. Modern, clean, comfy bed. Excellent with fantastic restaurant called El Challan around the corner. Best place in Arica. A great stop. Welcome drink and small pool. A lovely oasis in the middle of town.

This is a slightly different kind of review, but it shows that it's the little things that count. I booked a room here for my daughter who was backpacking through South America and her visit to Arica coincided with her birthday. I'm in the UK so I emailed them (having failed to get anywhere via Hotels.com by the way) so...

The Hotel is very close to the center of Arica. Extremly friendly staff and very nice rooms. It is great for a pleasant stay in Arica. Especially Elizabeth makes a great breakfast in the morning with a perfect view over the city and towards the sea. Me encantaba!
