Nice building (also our rooms were strictly not part of it) but totally out of the way. Nice garden (pool in construction) So OK hotel if you are staying in Arequipa and want to relax and rest but not suitable for a short stay where you want to go and explore Arequipa city centre. it is a 25 min walk...

My family of 3 adults stayed here for 3 nights sandwiched in between a 2D/1N Colca Canyon tour. Reviewers who mentioned the walk to Plaza de Armas taking 10 minutes must be race walkers or 7 feet tall. 20 to 25 minutes would be more reasonable for the average person given it is a slightly uphill climb all the way...

We arrived here at 2am after a 13 hour coach trip, which was only supposed to last 8 hours! How immensely relieved we were to find ourselves in one of the most unique and beautiful hotels of our six week trip round South America. The staff were friendly and personable without being invasive, and the hotel was more like a... More

The rooms were very spacious and clean. The grounds were very looked after. If you need to leave the hotel in the early hours, make sure you let the owners know as they lock everything up at night, which makes you feel very safe. The breakfast was fantastic, with a large variety of fresh fruits and homemade juices. The owners... More

We had stayed here only one night unfortunately due to limited time and our room was in the main building with a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and garden, had high ceiling and very spacious. The bed was so comfortable we often mentioned about it during the next 5 days of staying at different hotels through out our trip. The... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Posada el Castillo. The home is beautiful, comfortable, and filled with all sorts of beautiful curiosities. The rooms are well equipped - we had one with a balcony overlooking the immaculate gardens. It is well situated - about a 10 min walk to the city centre (or a very short and... More

It's hard to imagine a better B&B in Arequipa in this price range. It's a beautiful old building with all the character and charm of a colonial mansion together with most of the comforts of a modern hotel. Our room on the second floor of the main house was beautiful, with several wooden-arched windows, a large shared balcony, a super... More

Seems to me the best choice in Arequipa if you don't want to stay in one of the narrow spaced Hotels in the city centre. A little bit (15min walk) but not too far from the centre, silent, nice spacious rooms (some with balcony), beautiful garden, even swimming pool, very good breakfast and very nice and helpful owners. O.k. the... More

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
