Didn't really know what to expect. We drew up outside an unassuming frontage in an Arequipa side street and entered into a small reception. Formalities over very efficiently we found that the hotel was an old colonial house with several courtyards and a charming small garden. Our room was huge with a high barrel vaulted ceiling - a bit dark perhaps but more than OK with two large beds. Small but efficiently functioning bathroom and good Wifi. Breakfast was a bit of a surprise cereal, juices, scrambled eggs and coffee as usual but the surprise was the bowl of coca leaves to make coca tea - it is supposed to help with altitude sickness, but not sure if it helped or not. So if you want a basic but convenient hotel close to Arequipa's main sites this is well worth trying.
