“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Everything was first class with this hotel. They offer a free transfer from the airport and the location is great with it being only a few minutes walk from plaza de armas. Wouldn`t stay anywhere else if I went back to Arequipa.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with friends

As you walk in you known its going to be a comfortable stay. The hotel was very spacious and recently been renovated. Flor at the front desk was very helpful.
We were at the 3rd floor so we didn't hear much street noise. I would definitely stay here again. Very good location-- just across the street from my favorite chocolate store-- La Iberica.

Tierra Viva Arequipa is a nice hotel located just a short walk from Plaza de Armas. The hotel is nice and modern, rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. Breakfast is nice and plenty.

Only downsides are that the rooms facing the street are rather loud (like in almost every hotel in Peru) and the hotel lacks some personality. Staff is helpful but it is not a hotel you will remember much cause the atmosphere is more like in a business hotel.

Nice, clean big rooms, we were on our honeymoon and when we arrived they told us that there is a surpirse waiting for us in the room it was a Champagne and flowers, it was really nice of them. The breakfast is good. The stuff is helpfull.

We liked this hotel a lot. Stayed here two nights separated by a night in the Colca Canyon. The hotel is very modern with a great breakfast buffet. The front desk staff was helpful with local information, directions, etc. We could not have been happier with the location, just 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas, and easily walkable to all the tourist sites in Arequipa. While we thought e hotel was very clean and well maintained/updated, we did have minor plumbing issues in each room. In the first room, the toilet would not shut off and in the second, the sink drain came apart. We reported these issues and presume they were taken care of. All in all, I would highly recommend the Tierra Viva Arequipa Plaza as a great place to stay in lovely Arequipa.

Good location near the main square, nice spacious rooms, good price, helpful staff, good breakfast, free pickup from the airport. We stayed one night and enjoyed it. It was cold, but they have heaters in the room.

I recently spent one night at Tierra Viva with my husband and a couple of friends. I had made the reservations based on the Trip Advisor's reviews and was uncertain of my decision, not knowing if everything I read was completely true ... until we got there and loved it!
The great experience with them started with the pick-up service they provide from the airport, when we arrived to the hotel, the staff greeted us warmly and offered complimentary hot beverages. Our rooms were great, spacious, nicely furnished and comfortable, the bathrooms are modern and have great showers. The breakfast buffet was very nice too.
We learned that the hotel opened in February (2012) so everything is new and spotless! As mentioned before, their staff is very warm and everyone there made us feel welcome and treated us royally. My recommendation for them: keep up with the great work! My recommendation for you, reader: Go to Tierra Viva, browse the web no more!
