Todos los días 6am pasa un tren, pita súper fuerte y se escucha en todo el cuarto. Las duchas no tienen presión por lo que el agua sale sin fuerza y es tedioso bañarse. Hay ruidos extraños en las habitaciones.

6/10 Good

Comfortable, but noisy
We stayed here for one night as we had an early flight from Arequipa. After we had been travelling around for a week we enjoyed the 'western' comforts - great shower, comfy bed. We had dinner at the hotel which was very nice, and the service was great. But for us, we were really disappointed at the noise. I dont know if there was a concert on nearby, or if it was to do with the protests which were starting to gather pace, but late into the night/early hours of the morning we could hear loud music/a person on a microphone so we barely slept. For a modern, newly built hotel we would of expected better soundproofing!
