The devoted staff will advise on visits, restaurants, shops, airport schedules and more. There are many points of interest within a few blocks, easy to walk everywhere in the city of Arequipa. We enjoyed immensely.

We had a very warm welcome on our arrival following an efficient transfer from the airport. We were given useful information about sights in the city and given a cup of tea before being shown to our room. Breakfasts are very good, cooked to order from a menu. It was warm and cosy and very close to the main square.... More

Excellent location just off the main square. Quiet room with a big comfortable bed. The breakfast staff particularly were fantastic. Lovely friendly waitress from Cusco. We ate breakfast on the terrace with a view over the rooftops. We're both gluten free so they especially sourced some delicious pancakes made from a type of quinoa which were fab. Highly recommend.

Overall the place was great. Perfect location, just off the main square. The best part of the hotel was the breakfast. The hostess at breakfast was WONDERFUL. She addressed us by name every day and was very efficient, polite and personable. The breakfast was great as well. Overall truly amazing staff.

Ask the staff about anything to do with your stay and they will help. Provided us with packed breakfasts when we had days out and had to leave early. We arrived very early and our room was ready and we had an early coffee.

Stayed in a street facing room so was slightly noisy. The room was the perfect size and impeccably clean. A strange quirk is that you can hear conversations and noises from other rooms through the vents in the bathrooms. The staff was friendly and eager to help. My only complaint was that one of the front desk employees gave us... More

The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. Helped arrange a fun tour to Colca Canyon. Yummy breakfast with a view. Comfortable bed and clean room. Airport transportation made it easy. Great way to see more of Peru beyond Cusco. What's not to love ? And I didn't meet a Pisco sour in Areqipa that I didn't like!
