Great neighbourhood- 25 minute walk to downtown
My Husband and I had a great time staying at Tintin..Room was clean with good amenities and we enjoyed the breakfast. Silvana was helpful guiding us about things to do around Arequipa and restaurants in downtown area. Would definitely recommend this place if you are staying in Arequipa..
Good, comfortable facilities. Great view. Good communication with the center (few min by taxi for few soles). Proper service from the staff. Highly recommended
Hotel itself: Casa de Tintin is a small B&B. Clean, pleasant, great breakfast. Hot water, good towels, TV in the room with some English channels (if you actually have time to watch).
Staff/Service: Friendly and helpful. We met the owner, a lovely woman. Desk staff helped us with taxis and arranged to have laundry done. All in all, very nice. Breakfast was delicious (fresh bread, cheese, eggs, coffee/tea, fruit, etc.), you will not leave hungry.
Location: Nice neighborhood, a short taxi ride from the Plaza de Armas, or about a 25 minute walk. We did not feel inconvenienced at all, and the neighborhood was peaceful and pretty.
We would highly recommend Casa de Tintin.
La Casa de Tintin is a beautiful, quiet place to stay in Arequipa - right next to the river. It is in a quiet location- the walk to the center of town is about 12 blocks but I never did that- the cost of a taxi to the center of town is 5-6 soles depending on where you are going. The staff are very nice and helpful- there is a family atmosphere. If you want to order dinner- you just let them know earlier in the day. Everything I had there was very good. Several people told me that you need to be careful of being robbed by taxi drivers in Arequipa- but the staff at Tintin will tell you the good companies to use or have them call. I loved Casa De Tintin and would stay there again.
