Wir hatten ein wunderschoen eingerichtetes Zimmer, einen warmen Empfang des Personals. Kareng war sehr aufmerksam und sie hat sogar zum Geburtstag meiner Freundin spontan die Organisation einer sehr gelungenen Ueberraschung mit Geburtstagskuchen, Ansprache und einem Staendchen vom gesamten Kuechenpersonal uebernommen. Tolles Fruehstueck, supertolle Aussicht von unserem Balkon sowie von der Dachterasse. Wir haben uns dort unglaublich wohl gefuehlt und wuerden...

We stayed in a Junior suite. The two chaise lounges in the large room were worth the price alone - perfect for reading or planning your day. The hotel was situated in a quiet courtyard away from the noise and hustle but only a 7 min walk to the main plaza. The rooftop dining room with indoor/outdoor seating was perfect...

I stayed there for 2 nights and had a very peaceful and relaxing time, the managing team of the hotel is very helpful, Not very far from Plaza des Armas, the breakfast options are good and the view from the rooftop while having breakfast is amazing.

prety neat Hotel just a stones throw away from the centre of the old colonial city (literally 5 blocks from the Plaza des Armas). The ground and first floor are part of a renovated old colonial building, on top of which they have built the rest 4 modern floors. Nicely intergrated, they also form a nice atrium in the middle...

The hotel is well located , the rooftop where the breakfast is served offers a nice view. Apart from these positive point, the rest is not up to expectations: very noisy and no real privacy for rooms opening into the lobby. Bathroom was small with problem of water evacuation in the shower Side bed light were dirty and broken But...

What can I say. I loved this place. I went with my wife and we stayed in one of the suites. Super romantic and the location was perfect. It's around 5 blocks from the main square but it's right next to San Lazaro square, where the city was founded. Besides the neighborhood is very traditional and you can take great...

The location is quite good because it is only 3 blocks from the main plaza. Breakfast was nothing special but ok. The room was clean and towels nicely folded, even though I found the bed not accettable for since sheets were dowsized (see foto). Moreover the shower were a little bit old. Sorry, but no recommendation!

The hotel is not VERY close to the Plaza, but still in a good place. Not a lot of noise at night, but a little in the morning. The best restaurants are just 4 blocks away (bars and pubs too). Reception needs a little more training. If you are planning to go out, take into account that the hotel door...

This is a very centrally located hotel and very easy to walk and explore Arequipa. We were in a car rally but there is no car park so it arriving by car - alternative parking arrangements needs to be made. We stayed in Room 301 which looks out onto a void and was noisy at night. There was also a...

This hotel is very well located and walking distance from Plaza de Armas and all its attractions. Service is impeccable and rooms are very clean. Great breakfast included in the morning.The only negative is that there is a small park right around the corner and if they happen to have festivities there, it will be very noisy until the late...
