Reviewed 18 August 2016

This is a beautiful hotel above the tranquil plaza of Yanahuara. The water was hot, the internet was mostly working (although a little dodgy in our room), and the furniture and decor was excellent. However, the hotel was super confusing about check-out times and breakfast policies. One place said breakfast was 4USD, which for a bread, bad coffee, and not-fresh juice, would have been disappointing. The hotel policies said we needed to check-out by 10 AM, and in another place said 10:30, while our reservation said 11. In any case, with a 10-ish check out and a 2:00 PM check-in, that wasn't much time to enjoy the tranquility. They wait-staff was hospitable, but we didn't get the friendliest reception. Taxi drivers don't know how to get here.

On a positive note, the view of the volcanoes from our room was spectacular, and it was very quiet. But when you're only allowed to stay for 20 hours, it puts a damper on your ability to relax.

Reviewed 7 July 2016 via mobile

The hotel is very modern and furnished well but poorly managed. The Wifi did not work for the entire 12 hours of our stay. First time we complained on the Wifi they played dumb stating it worked and it was a login issue. After calling them out they later changed the story that it was an outage. Hotel also charges a 4% surcharge for credit cards. Not disclosed on Expedia or other travel sites. Also because it's a Colonial building its not sound proof. I could hear full conversations from other guests rooms. As well at 5 am in the morning we were awoken by the loud sound of roosters near by. Very loud and the windows were not open. Also the website states a hotel shuttle which is just a taxi they call. Charge of 50 soles, we grabbed a radio taxi for 15 soles outside the property. We stayed in much better hotels in Arequipa at the same price point that out performed this hotel.

Lovely place with beautiful and peaceful courtyard to lounge about in. Lots of quirky decorating touches. Beds very comfortable. Not in central Arequipa but taxi is only about $2 and the neighborhood feels very safe. Open top tourist buses depart from just down the road. Excellent wifi too.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equally good.

The location is perfect near to Yanahuara plaza. Is like a quiet small village when you walk in the streets around.Only 15 minutes walk to Plaza De Armas.The hotel is really cute,clean,with beautiful decoration,the owners and the staff VERY friendly.It's a perfect choice if you like small,family hotels.
