It’s worth traveling to Arequipa just to stay in this beautiful, unique mansion in its lovely garden setting. Our upper floor room in the main house had its own sunny balcony, high arched windows with red bougainvillea outside, and a large, clean bathroom. The house has exquisite woodwork details and flooring, elaborate windows, and numerous antiques and artifacts on display.... More

A good B&B, clean, very quite but banal, we were expecting something more charming. The pictures on the web side show a nice villa, but the rooms are in a different building and that was quite disappointing. If you travel by car, you will get mad to find that place, the gps navigator itself got lost and the indication gives... More

At first arrival the hotel seems a bit far away from the town center - but in fact, it is a nice quite place at walking distance of the town. It will take 15 minutes to walk to the center, which gives you a nice walk to enjoy the area. The breakfast at the hotel is great, reception and service... More

The most charming small hotel in Arequipa. It was originally one of the oldest and most beautiful mansions in Arequipa. It is owned and run by a Dutch-Peruvian couple on a daily basis, it is the cleanest hotel that I have stayed in, bar none, in all of Peru (and certainly in Bolivia). The rooms are in perfect condition, all... More

Stayed two nights and it's been the best stay on this trip! The house is beautiful, big gardens and pool to relax. It is 15/20 mins walking from the main plaza and that suited me well as it really felt like a holiday! HIghly recommend it!!!

Lovely little boutique hotel on the edge of town, really enjoyed our 2 nights. Only a 15 minute walk to the main square in a nice and quiet area. Highly recommend it, one of the nicest places we stayed at a very reasonable price.

Stayed here two nights. Great environment, quiet part of town, average breakfast. A bit of walking to the main attractions of Arequipa, but I did not mind since I like to walk. The premises were clean, great garden, impressive architecture in main building. I'd stay here again. Good value.

I still dream about our stay here. This little BandB is tucked away in a quiet area. The architechture and the rooms are extremely classy and sophisticated. The entire facility is super clean, and they have fantastic bathrooms. We had a gorgeous view of the city. The place is owned by a really friendly couple. They were very helpful and... More

We visited Arequipa primarily to move on to the Colca Canyon. We stayed most often in hostals, but this was a reasonably priced hotel. we had a big room and a fantastic bed. The hotel is in a quiet part of town within walking distance of the town center.

Due to our flight arrangements, we were required to stay overnight in Arequipa from Lima to Cusco. Our travel agent recommended this place even the local taxi driver had problem finding this little oasis. We arrived late (after 10pm) and had to leave by 6am the next morning. Wished we had more time enjoying what this place has to offer... More
