This is a great place to stay in Arequipa. It's a charming lilltle B&B with lots of character. The rooms were very clean and well prepared. The breakfast was also very nice, with freshly made juice, tea, coffee, fresh bread and eggs. But what really makes this place stand out from the rest is the level of service given to... More

We initially booked four nights here before a trek to colca canon. After a few days, we extended our stay by a week. We loved our room (with balcony and extremely comfortable bed) and the staff at Tintin are extraordinary--so helpful and attentive. They helped us arrange several trips and our bus tickets for free, as well as makings feel... More

Rooms are cosy, spotless. Staff helpfull. Walking distance to main square,neighbourhood is good. A 40 minute taxi ride to the airport. Fare i think was 20 dollars.The main square is stunning especially at night. Visiting hours to the monastry are limited, check in advance. Would use this hotel if visiting Arequipa again

I stayed here with my wife and sisters in June last year. We had a great stay, loved the breakfast each morning. The staff were very helpful and gave us lots of tips and suggestion of things to do and places to see. Location was great, just a short walk into the city. Would definitely stay again.

I agree with all the other reviews. Very nice, accomodating place. Anita was just lovely. We did the 3-day Colca Trek which I highly reccomend and then stayed at Tintin another night. They were very generous to let us use their kitchen.

This is the third time I travel to Arequipa and the previos trip was back when I was a teenager. I found this quiet, next to a river, BandB Inn that was just perfect to start my journey to Cuzco for the Inti Raymi. It was the best choice available. I am traveling with my sixteen years old son and... More

This hotel feels like home. La Casa de Tin Tin is located just a few minutes away from the city center however in a green and peaceful location, close to the river. Our Room had a balcony with a view of the river, which made waking up in the mornings a really magnificent experience. The place is clean, nice and... More

We loved La Casa de Tintin; the location was fine, a pleasant, easy walk to the center of town and decent restaurants; the ability to book a 2-day tours to the Colca Canyon; the views of the river from our room; the quiet! and the very nice breakfast. All in all, highly recommended.

A South American Track & Field championship brought us to Arequipa and we were advised to stay in La Casa de Tintin, we fortunately did with part of the peruvian team I coached.
