This place is more than a refugio! Nice rustic interior, and a mesmerizing view over 2 volcanos from the breakfast terrace and certain rooms. The staff is so helpful, finds out what you want, and acts immediately. English is not a strength, but reasonable.The accomodation is not in the very center, but is for a managable distance from it. It...

While the staff are absolutely lovely, and the exterior is beautifully decorated, this hotel is a dump. First, I had written a room request (via email) in English. They responded in Spanish with prices and other things. I assumed this was the confirmation. Upon arrival to the hotel, they did not have my reservation. Fortunately (or unfortunately) they had a...

We stayed for nearly a week in Arequipa and used this as our home base. The rooms were cheap, but relatively comfortable. We loved having access to a refrigerator in our room, for beer, water, and leftovers :) The terrace on the third floor has a great view of the mountains, and the wifi is OK. (It's South America -...

Spent 3 nights there. The rooms were as I expected them to be for that price range and very clean. I really enjoyed the terrasse with a nice view on El Misti where you take the breakfast. You can use this area throughout the day to relax and drink something. The staff was friendly and you are within walking distance...

This is a comfortable little place to stay. It's quiet (though one morning we were woken by what sounded like a school presentation day next door). The rooms are very clean, the beds are big and comfy. We had some trouble with hot water in the first room we stayed in but no problem in the second room. The staff...

I booked a room in advance and asked twice if I could arrive after midnight. The hotel answered that there was no problem. Although I sent them the time of my arrival, no one answered the door ring nor the phone call when I arrived, to open the door. I needed to search for another hotel in the middle of...

This is was a lovely little Hotel. The view from the upper deck was wonderful. We liked the location. Close to downtown but not too close. Good breakfast and they arranged pick up and drop off from the Airport. Included in the price of the room. We recommend this hotel.

We had a great time in this wonderful hotel. The location is quiet and safe in a very nice neighborhood. Also, it is within walking distance (about 20 minutes) to Plaza the Armas. Even if taking a taxi, it's only 5 soles. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The facilities are new and clean. We highly recommend this...
