We stayed at Tierra Viva, Arequipa Plaza Hotel in April 2014. We initially booked a room at the Azul Colonial Inn (DO NOT STAY THERE! -- read my review Azul Colonial Inn), and after our negative experience there we grabbed our bags and set out in search for a new place to stay.
We ended going to Tierra Viva as we saw that they had rooms available online....from the moment we stepped in to the hotel our luck turned around in a major way. They were extremely polite, helpful, and welcoming as we explained our situation. They said they had a room for us at a very reasonable rate -- and then they helped us with our bags to our room. Great staff!!
The room is very clean, very big, and had everything you needed as if you were in any other luxury hotel. The bathroom was stocked, had a large walk-in shower, towels, hair-dryer, hot water, etc.
They have a complimentary breakfast every morning, and it was delicious -- buffet style and basic -- but they had a lot of variety from eggs, sausages, potatoes to waffles, bagels, and various spreads. Great stuff, and free! The hotel was also very central....it was maybe a 3-4 min walk to the Plaza de Armas, and all the restaurants, bars, tour companies, and monastery. The location seemed very safe, as we walked home at night after dinner a couple times and felt like it was still busy and safe....
Great central location, and great place to stay if you don't mind spending a LITTLE extra -- we were very glad to have found this place under our circumstances!!!!
