It is a beautiful colonial building, which a gorgeous pink facade. The rooms are very spacious, with large windows overlooking the gardens. The hotel staff are nice and always willing to lend any assistance. Although it's not in the centre of Arequipa, it's 10 minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas. It has a very nice garden, with a great view of the Misti Volcano (weather permitting), with a large pool, and an area in which there are llamas and alpacas.
