“Luxurious Boutique Hotel at affordable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Clean and functional design aesthetic; large, comfortable rooms; centrally located yet still quiet; and friendly and helpful staff who went above and beyond to help with restaurant reservations, car rental inquiries, massage bookings, and any questions at all. Joel at the front desk was especially excellent, great customer service.

The breakfast spread is enough to satisfy you for hours. I loved this hotel and wish I had stayed at Tierra Viva in Cusco and Lima.

Great hotel in the centre of the old Arequipa, near everything. Large rooms. Very quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Good restaurant recommendations. The rooftop patio has no furniture on it.

This is a wonderful hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful. we had a very early start and they provided us with a breakfast box.
The rooms are spacious and clean and the bathrooms felt like a real luxury.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on our way from Cusco to Lima and even though we arrived very early (we travelled all night), the front desk had our room ready for us to take it! It was great! Spacious and very clean, with free Wi-Fi. We stayed three nights and enjoyed the delicious breakfast. Most important: the staff was very helpful on giving directions and attentive to all of our needs. If I were to go back to Arequipa, this hotel would be my first choice. Perfect location: a couple of short blocks to Main Square and access to all tours.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room away from street: traffic can be a bit noisy early in the am. We had to get up...

We stayed at the Tierra Viva hotels in Lima, Cusco, Arequipa, and Puno during our recent trip to Peru. The price is very reasonable. The staff are very friendly and customer service is 5 stars! The room is very comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel chain if you are in Peru.

All the Tierra Viva hotels we stayed at are good but this is our favorite. The room is very big and the staff is very friendly.

This hotel was clean with very comfortable beds.It also had an elevator which was a nice treat.

While I rate this hotel quite highly, I note that the street noise can be a factor as most of the rooms face the courtyard.

Also, this hotel is very modern which has its benefits but lacks the charm of traditional hotels.

A nice clean, friendly hotel very close to the plaza. But with a 98% TA rating we were expecting something really special, and well, we just didn't see that. The service was attentive and polite, but it's a higher mid-range hotel so shouldn't that be expected. The majority of the patrons during our visit seemed to be on business although I'm sure it gets many tourists too, it just felt a little formal. Although we would normally stay in smaller boutique hotels/B&Bs, I was drawn to the high rating.

They advertise a roof terrace online, but on our visit there was no seating/furniture up there, just a bare roof so not really useable. Requested a wake-up call at 3am for early start to Colca Canyon, but it never happened.

All in all a good, clean hotel with very comfortable beds for a reasonable price, in a great location too...... but 98%, not in my view.
