The only place to stay in Arequipa!Posted Jun 11, 2013
Pros: Clean room, plentiful hot water, friendly staff, great location
Location: Close to the plaza, restaurants and stores--a safe neighborhood.
This was an excellent hotel for a very reasonable price. The water was always hot, the room was cleaned daily, the front desk was always staffed, the breakfast was good and plentiful. Several members of the staff spoke excellent English. They were helpful on everything from restaurant recommendations to a suggestion on where to get a pair of hiking pants mended. Good quality flat screen TV with HBO, Cinemax and BBC. The hotel included a free airport pickup and return, and when I checked out, they gave me a box of candy as a a gift. When I return to Arequipa, I definitely will stay here.

Average hotel, not too expensivePosted Feb 6, 2012
Pros: Nice LCD tv set.
Cons: The rooms did not properly isolate noise, specially within the hotel. Outside noise wasn't a problem as we were in the interior part of the property.
Location: Not far from the Main Square, about 7 blocks.
The hotel was located a little bit far from the Main Square, about 7 blocks. The hotel did not have an elevator so we had to carry our luggage using the stairs. Fortunately we were traveling light as we were there only for the weekend.The rooms were not isolated from the noise and we could hear the guests next door talking loudly as they did not close their door. At some point I had to exit and ask them to keep their voice down and they complied. The breakfast was supposed to be buffet, but the staff put only limited amounts of food on the buffet table. I imagine that was to prevent people from overeating. Nevertheless, we had enough for a normal breakfast. The staff was friendly at all times but the major problem I had was when we were checking out. We wanted to pay by credit card and they told us we had a special rate for cash payments. We complained that they did not tell us that in advance at check in. Besides, they had the banners for the major credit cards brands, so we automatically assumed there was no problem. We called the manager and they allowed us to pay with a credit card as we told them we did not have enough cash to pay for our stay and we did not have the debit card to withdraw money from our bank accounts.
