Good place to stay in Arequipa
Situated at about 20in walking distance from the Main Square (Plaza de Armas), the hotel is offering nice rooms, clean, quiet, with secured parking space. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good value for money.

6/10 Good

A bit spartan. Clean, well-priced, well-located.
The hotel arranged a transfer from the airport for my 6:30 AM arrival. I had been traveling for 24 hours and it was great to go directly to my room and get a little shut-eye. It was a garden room which, later on, meant that it was noisy because there was a day-long meeting going on in the Garden. But I got several hours' sleep before the decibel level went up so I was able to use the day to sight-see. The noise didn't really bother me until late afternoon, when I returned and tried to take another nap. The staff was most accommodating in giving me tips for getting about and in arranging a cab to the airport the next morning. The wifi did not reach to my room ( a circumstance not that unusual in Peruvian hotels, I learned). It's a bit spartan, but it's a f placeine for someone on a budget.
