The staff at this hotel were faultless, they couldn't be more helpful and hospitable. The standard rooms are quite compact, however, they are very nicely furnished and have clean modern bathrooms. The big issue with this hotel, reflected in the score we've given it, is the noise. When we first arrived we could hear some noise in the room and...

Geared to Americans it's right in the center of town. They bend over backward to see that you are happy. Best breakfast in Peru so far. Very safe, clean, organized and huge shower. Really could not be beat. And a perfect "splurge" after hiking.

Tomas, the general manager, picked us up from the airport. We had a lovely conversation on the way to the hotel and Tomas' English is flawless. The room was very modern, clean, quiet and comfortable.

I spent a night here either side of an overnight trip to Colca Canyon. My visit to Peru came at the end of a 2 month journey and I regret that I did not have at least another day in which to explore Arequipa. Of all the places in which I stayed this was the most welcoming. Well done to...
