Hello amigos,
here we stayed for a more luxory service. We travel budget but every now and then I can use a hot thub.
Good service, friendly people, right into the city center of Arequipa.
We also had a great panoramic city view.

regards,
Helen

It is a very nice place, located 2 blocks from the main plaza. Has a good breakfast included in the price (eggs, toast, juice, coffee, butter and jam) but it is not buffet, so if you have to leave early, make sure you have enough time for them to cook it (brekfast starts at 7am).
Rooms are ok (don't expect a 5 star hotel room), cable TV, queen bed, small fridge and a good bathroom.
Some problems though:
1. No air conditioning or heating (We did not need them during December)
2. The hotel is located next to Santa Catalina's convent, so, you will be awaken by bells at 6am, 6.30am, and 7am.

Btw, if you like adventure sports, ask for a guide, there are options such as bungee jumping, rapel descend, rock climbing, trekking by the Misti.
(there is a tourist agency inside the hotel that is helpful, and trustworthy)

Even though we only had 1 night in Arequipa (enroute from Lima to Puno), we really enjoyed our time here and the hotel. I wish we could have stay another night or so.

Coming from Lima, it was definitely a breather here in Arequipa. Like other developing cities, the street in Lima was quite saturated in exhaust from cars and buses. Air in Arequipa was cleaner but not when in a busy street filled with taxis.

The hotel is well located: steps from the center plaza and almost right across from Monasterio Santa Catalina. We also took the tour of Juanita (Ice Maiden Mummy) in the museum near the plaza.

Our rooms were on the 4th floor and we had a great view of Arequipa's skyline. Rooms were clean and bedding was fresh and comfortable.

The only down side is the elevator was being repaired while we were there and we had to climb all those stairs. Hopefully they had finished fixing it by now.

Breakfast was basic, coffee, dinner rolls and jam.

Next day we took the 4M-Express van to Puno. It turn out to be a nice bus ride through the mountain and lagoon.

Make sure you bring food with you for breakfast because this place only provides a hard bun and some jam.
The hotel is in a central location, however there are no restaurants close by that are open early in the morning.

Arequipa is a beautiful historical city, but you need to stay only one night to visit the main attractions. If you visit Colca canyon it will take two more nights.
Hotel Asturias is an example of a good managed hotel.
It is really clean. They use white bed linens.
They have well maintained and comfortable rooms with hot water in abundance.
Free wireless internet access.
Excellent service. My wife and I have paid U$ 55 per night and we have to say that the price is really honest.
We really recommend this hotel.

The hotel is right across from the monastery. the streets are well lit and patrolled by police. a few blocks from the plaza de armas and museums.

I would recommend this spot to travellery that want to relax in a comfortable room, noise was minimal.

Don Quichotte Resturant is owned by French cook Lorenzo Gonzalez. He was born in Spain and raised in France and has been cooking all over the world. His onion soup is one of the best that we have ever had. All of his dishes are fresh and presented beautifully. We really enjoyed many of his dishes.
