Beautiful old historic building. Staff has been friendly and helpful. Breakfast is the usual fare - certainly nothing special. The rooms vary a lot so ask to see what's available. Some have refrigerators, some have more than one room, some have balconies, etc. Good location.

La Casa de Margott is by far my absolute favorite hotel I've stayed in to date. It is truly beautiful and classy with all sorts of history... the building itself is over 400 years old! We chose a room at the back with a terrace- if you don't like the first room you see, ask to see another! I was... More

We stayed here before and after a Colca Canyon trek. The hostal itself is only a couple of blocks from the plaza and within walking distance to restaurants, bars, etc. We asked for a room at the back so it was more quiet. Hoy water in the showers, WiFi and breakfast included. They booked bus tickets for us from their... More

Most of the reviews here are positive, and my wife had positive experiences the first couple times she stayed here going to and from work, but when we tried staying for a weekend vacation, it was a bit of a disaster. To begin, there were no towels or soap in the room when we arrived. The guy on the evening... More

Centraly located, this place is well-run and the staff is both kind and competent. Superb view of the city from the terrace. The rooms are nice and comfy. Good breakfast in the morning. Try and choose your room on the spot. Some are better than others of the same price.

I stayed here in November for three nights. All of the rooms face a central courtyard with a huge palm in the centre. Our room was off the street so was relatively quiet, except for one morning when a very noisy tour group stood at the bottom of the courtyard and talked loudly for an hour between six and seven,...

My girlfriend and I booked this hostal for the Arequipa portion of our Peruvian vacation based on the limited number of reviews which were on TripAdvisor at the time and we were not disappointed! The hotel was prompt in replying to all of our emails prior to arrival, our transfer was waiting for us at the airport and they even... More

We got to this hostal due to the cancelation other hostal has maid. The stuff was helpful, rooms were OK, location is really good. Wifi does not work in the rooms (at least not when more people are at the hotel, I guess trying the same) but they offer you their PC. Breakfast was not the same quality every day,... More

Nice room with private bathroom and private balcony with mountainview. The bed was comfortable and they gave us 2 extra pillows on request. We felt very safe and felt safe leaving our things behind. They have a gate at the front which you need to be buzzed in as it is locked at all times. There is no elevator just... More

Not much more $ than the Posada Misti and lightyears better in experience. Beautiful room with wood floor, arched brick ceiling, light switches on each side of the bed, phone (did not have a need for one) secure door onto balconey, light breakfast, charm and great bathroom. Spotlessly clean, safe and secure, the streetside window was a little noisy -... More
