We stayed 8 nights with the Tierra Viva chain of hotels during our recent trip to Peru. We stayed with them at Lima, Cusco, Puno & Arequipa. For me this was probably the best decision of our trip. If you are traveling across Peru you are likely to touch these 4 locations. If you are not looking for swimming pools, fancy restaurants & other luxury trappings, this hotel chain is ideal. All their hotels are located very well. You are actually walking distance from the tourist attractions in Cusco, Puno & Arequipa & in Lima you are in Miraflores, where all the action is. Their rooms are clean with a very comfortable bed & all the modern trappings like flat screen TVs, Free Wifi etc. Their breakfast is great. While Lima had the best spread, the others were no less. All their hotels have free access to computers , printers etc which is really useful. Their airport pick ups & drops etc were very efficient & reasonably priced. I even got a free pick up at Puno at 4.30 am! Since I don't speak Spanish, the bell hop always helped out with the taxi, fixing the price & making sure the destination was well understood. They stored our luggage during our trips to Nazca & Machu Picchu. They have a free supply of Coco Tea at Cusco, Puno & Arequipa hotel lobby which is a great help to acclimatize with the altitude. They also helped with reservation for meals at Astrid & Gaston & Central, both of which are a must visit fine dining experience in Lima being rated within the top 50 restaurants in the world.
Now the icing on the cake, if you stay with them in more than one location, you get a 10% discount as long as you book directly through them.
They are extremely good for those traveling through Peru and are looking for 3 or 4 star accommodations in cities they are present in.
I did not try booking tours etc through them as I had done most of these own my own so can't comment on that area.
