Good place great price
This is a good budget place right on Bolognessi and the park. Cross the bridge and you're in town and not far from plaza de las armas. Easy enoughto get around with taxi or on foot. I wouldn't wander around alone on foot after 10 PM, but everything else was fine. Some review on the noise but I was on the lower level in back, so I wasn't affected. Just about right for the stay and need!

Great home base in Arequipa
The hotel is very basic, but perfectly comfortable for the price you pay. Some rooms boast amazing views of the mountains surrounding Arequipa, which is nice. We enjoyed having a refrigerator in our room, and appreciated the cheap laundry service offered. They also let us leave our stuff when we went to Colca Canyon for a 2D/1N trip, which was helpful. The room is a little bright and the outside can be noisy, so earplugs and eyemask are recommended. It's a short walk from nearly everywhere you'd want to go in Arequipa, making it a great home base for the week we spent there.

Great location & low cost
THE SHORT / Refugio Ecologico is a small hotel, with three stories, located just by the river in Arequipe. For the price we paid, it was a great option, especially if you have ear plugs and an eye mask :) PROS / The location is ideal, a short walk to all the major sites and many great restaurants. Breakfast is basic, but filling. The staff are incredibly helpful! We loved having a refrigerator in our room :) CONS / The wifi is slow, but bearable. You'll definitely want to bring earplugs as it's quite noisy and in addition to the windows being very thin, there are car alarms going off all night. You'll also want to bring an eye mask as the curtains don't actually block out light. For the price of the room, the annoyances were easy to deal with!

Very good value. Friendly staff, good location.
Hotel sits across the street from a park by the river and is within walking distance from downtown Arequipa. Very helpful staff.

Refugio Ecológico, Arequipa
There was no window or fan in the room. The fridge was unplugged. The room smelled musty, like it needed airing out. Staff were very nice.
