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

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.
