The staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is fabulous.
Highly recommended :-)

The location is perfect, the staff is very dedicated, helpful and provided good pieces of advice.
The rooms are really large, the beds are perfect, the bathrooms are really nice, good wifi is available all through the hotel.
Few drawbacks: they changed the wifi code during our stay, and we came to know just by asking the staff why the wifi was not working, the breakfast is OK.
But overall you get a very.good attention, and you really feel that they are doing their best to delight you.
This is our best value for money during all our stay in Peru!
And Arequipa historical center is really beautiful!

Very comfortable large room in centre of Arequipa close to agencies etc. All facilities of a modern hotel. Overlooked internal central area so no view, but also no traffic noise. Staff always pleasant and helpful. We left late in the evening and they were happy for us to use the excellent business centre and foyer (with endless coffee) until our pickup. Excellent breakfast continually replenished.

We stayed several nights at the Tierra Viva last November, at the recommendation of the terrific Tierra Viva staff in Cuzco. We couldn't have been happier. The room was clean and comfortable ... with windows that opened onto the central area for ventilation. The in-room safe was a good size, the staff was always friendly ... and the breakfast spread was wonderful! Since we were vacationing, we'd let any business travelers eat first and we'd go down a bit later. The food was fully replenished, not like some hotels where you feel like you're eating the leftovers. We had the hotel arrange for a driver for the day, to visit the outlying area of Arequipa and take us to the airport. He was professional and knowledgeable about the city. The hotel is centrally located, in walking distance to everything downtown, without being in the noisy thick of things. Excellent restaurants in easy walking distance. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Tierra Viva on my next trip to Arequipa.

We were very happy with our stay at Tierra Viva in Arequipa. The rooms were very chic, large and nicely decorated. The furnishings and quality of the bathrooms were surprisingly high-end considering how reasonable the rates were at this hotel. The staff was also very professional and helpful, anticipating our needs. The hotel is well located just a couple blocks from the Plaza de Armas. We also liked the included breakfast buffet, which had a wide variety of options.

We stayed at the Terra Viva in Arequipa for two nights. The location of the hotel is very convenient and only 5 minutes walking distance to the main square (Plaza de Armas), Santa Catalina Convent, and a good number of restaurants.

The hotel is a modern "city stay" affair, generally the spaces were all modern clean and bright, with good strong wifi throughout. 

Our room was very large, as was the bed. The windows faced onto an interior courtyard, and so we were also shielded from the cities noises. A safe was provided, but not quite laptop size. Laundry services were cheap; but you get what you pay for. The chief downside was noise travelling between the bathrooms, which carried a bit too well and can wake you up in the mornings.

The service was excellent and always with a smile.  All the staff were very helpful with making bookings, assisting with translations, and even packing boxes of souvenirs to send home.

Breakfast could have been a bit better, and was fairly basic spread, and not the nicest of seating layouts.  A lot of local tours start at 8am, so if you get to breakfast late it can be slim pickings.

Really enjoyed this experience of the Terra Viva group, and would stay at their Arequipa hotel again.

It's in the middle of downtown where all the action is, things are all within walking distances.
Two blocks away from Santa Catalina , that's how centrally located it is.
Staff were friendly, helpful in all respect and always carry a smile.
Rooms are clean and modern, my only complaint is that there is no ventilation in the bathroom.
Breakfast was adequate.
Takes half an hour to get to the airport even around noon, not bad.
Not the cheapest, but worth the value.
