“Perfect stay! Really high-end Hotel”
Reviewed 25 September 2009

We stayed in this beautifull hotel for 3 nights with a group of 7 French people and we came back from the mountains for a ´day-use´. We loved the fact that the hotel is not situated in the city-center, it is nice and quiet and has the best view over the city and on the mountains. Rooms are great, big and clean and with balcony, breakfast is amazing, everything is fresh and you get more than enough! The staff is learning English, but communicating is easy though. The manager is Dutch and talkes besides Dutch also English, Spanish, German and even a bit French. This helps a lot, because one of us was sick and it is far more easy to tell in your own language what is wrong. The manager was superhelpfull and arranged everything for us.
We had a great time and hope this relatively new hotel will do great! Keep up the good work!

Best of luck and enjoy the stays in this amazing hotel,

Christian Barreau

This place is gorgeous! Quite new, with common spaces ranging from a cozy den with a fireplace to a spacious breakfast room with windows looking out on the mountains. Our rooms were wonderful--we had a private balcony with an amazing view over the city to the mountains. And it was the best bookshelf in Peru, with many tempting books to peruse--the innkeeper has great taste!

Unfortunately, the innkeeper was off the evening we arrived, and we kept missing him until the last day. The day and evening receptionists were lovely and helpful, but they did not speak good English--we were OK in Spanish for basic things, but not for things like arranging a tour, etc. The innkeeper does seem quite attentive, and he was great once we met him. We suggested that he have available brochures and phone numbers for a number of recommended tour operators, so that even if he was not there, you would still be able to make arrangements.

Also, the place is on a hill somewhat out of the town--hence the amazing view, but about a 20 minute walk or a cab ride to the town.
