This hotel has style and character. It is a cute little property, although run down and in need of a facelift. The location is iffy, there are closer hotels (to the plaza) of a similar price and quality. Breakfast was pleasant and the service was great.

A warm welcome awaits you at this rustic family run hotel situated in a quiet street close to local shops, restaurants, etc and just a 10-15 minute walk to the lovely old central plaza. Antonio and family are very friendly and helpful. The older rooms set around the central courtyard are clean and comfortable....more rustic than the four newer rooms...

this hotel is nice but it is very bad located, it is hard to find taxis to transfer you to the city centre and if you want to go walking you have to pass through a not nice neighborhood where streets are dark, empty and dirty. It takes like 15 mins to get to the centre of Arequipa by walking...

Really helpful and kind staff. I felt like home! Useful services available: bus tickets, laundry, food delivery, touristic materials, free wi-fi. Good location: walking distance from the Plaza de Armas, a shopping center, and a set of restaurants. I recommend it!

I've just finished up a month of traveling through Peru and found this to be the friendliest hotel we stayed at. Antonio was very helpful about cabs, sights, and helping us find the tourist police station (needed after a bad deal with a dodgy Cusco travel agent!). The room was clean and comfortable, the outdoor courtyard was a great setting...

I just recently returned from Peru and stayed several nights at this hotel. Overall the hotel was excellent. The rooms very clean and comfortable. My only conplaint about the room was the bed - a bit concave which can really bother your back. The breakfast was one of the best. The staff, in particular, Jose, was very accommodating and extremely...

We loved this place. Its an old mansion they have turned into a small hotel. They have a nice inner courtyard and it even has a humming bird nest on one of the lamps. You take your breakfast there on the terrace so it was nice watching the hummingbird flit from flower to flower. The breakfast was fine, fresh Peruvian...

The location is a bit "far" from city center. The rooms are nice, the staff is very friendly (they speak french, english and spanish of course). The breakfast is correct. The price and tours are alright. Colca Canyon tour for 35$us/pax. Good stay with them.

Usually statements like this would be an overstatement, but in our experience it was true (and we experienced much kindness all over the country and in neighbouring Bolivia). The owners were beyond friendly - friends! I really cannot begin to thank them for their kindness, to the extent that I would like to return to Arequipa one day just to...
