My stay at this hotel turned out just great after I had negotiated myself into a beautiful room facing the street. My first room, a single room, had no window! Most rooms face an inner court, with windows and surely calm, but not that exciting. Decent breakfast that was varied from day to day. Staff was very kind and professional.

The hotel is very conveniently located in the Centre of Arequipa, a short walk from the Plaza de Armas. Our room although relatively small was modern, well equipped (desk, safe, proper lighting, bedside tables, large double bed, good quality bedsheets), and very clean. The bathroom was well designed, with a nice shower (good pressure and very hot water). The wifi... More

We stayed in three cities - Lima, Arequipa and Cusco - during our 17 days in Peru. In each city we stayed in a hotel in the Tierra Viva chain. Arequipa was the city we liked the most and we were pleased with the local Tierra Viva hotel, the Arequipa Plaza. The hotel is just a block or two from... More

Apart from its top location, the hotel is clean and has very helpful and attentive staff. Good breakfast and free wi-fi. As there is no air-conditioning it can be rather warm in the room. I do recommend this hotel.

This was our first experience with Tierra Viva chain. It was a good place to stay and subsequent experiences bore this out. Breakfast included. TV, safe, circular shower. No A.C. but we requested a fan and got two!. Very helpful staff. No restaurant for meals other than breakfast but good location for restaurants. Very nice, great linens, comfortable bed, clean.

Very good hotel, however, the hot water it not that hot and the breakfast could have a better spread of options (freshly made eggs, etc.). The hotel should also have room service after 9pm, as some time you arrive tiered and do not wish to eat out.
