The hotel is a few kilometers from the Plaza de Armas; without traffic a taxi needs 20-25 minutes to get to the center. This makes the hotel unattractive for a short stay in Arequipa. We also found the service lacking, no help in unloading luggage from the car to the rooms. At first we were assigned an uncleaned room, but this was changed immediately. The breakfast is over a water pool with ducks, but it lacked vegetables and the bread was not fresh. The coffee was almost undrinkable. On the whole the establishment does not justify the number of stars it has. On the other hand if you want to run a meeting there, it is not a bad choice, but the management must pay attention to details and try to improve the shabby appearance and the quality of service and food.

The building it self is nice, but in need of some renovations, nothing major, but bits and pieces all over.

The rooms are big and nice, but no heating or air conditioning. It was a bit chilly at night, but not to bad. The worst part is the bathroom floor - that was freezing. The no heating seems to be an issue many places in Peru.

My room had a small bathtub witch was nice. The mechanism that close the drain didn't close tightly so I had to refill the tub constantly. Worse was however that it wouldn't stay in open position either so when showing the tub filled with water.

The doors to the hallway was not very soundproofed.

The restaurant was more a joke. We had obviously a waiter that was under training, and that's ok. Then you should be lenient. However I do not think it's ok that the food for 7 persons arrive so spread out that the all but one has managed to finish their food before the last plate arrive. And that's the chefs responsibility, not the waiter.

The food was not that great either. They did not manage to cook the meat to medium, everything was well done.

Another strange thing - the English language in the menu was not understandable. We suspect that they have used a bad version of Google translate.

They have a nice pool area, but no one is attending the bar there, so if you would like a refreshment you have to go to the restaurant and search for a waiter. No big deal, but it wouldn't be a big problem for them to circle the pool once in a while to ask if someone wants something.

You can't order from the restaurant or the room service menu at the pool. I find that a bit stupid. I would like to sit outside snd eat a light lunsh. Apparently they want do that because the food might get cold.

The hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. That makes it quite, but at the same time a bit unpractical for sight seeing. A taxi to city centre is not pricy, about 20soles, so its not a big issue.

All in all, its an ok hotel, but it could have been great. The most disappointing is the restaurant - they really need to get the act together.

We stayed at this hotel purely for the price. Little did we know that it's so far out from the city. 10km one way. That means 40 soles to and from the hotel everyday. With that money you could just upgrade to a nicer place downtown. The staff was nice but the lack of cleanliness and distance and noise at night just made it not worth it. If recommend a better place.
