Not only La Hosteria is worth staying at for anybody looking for a charming and great hotel in Arequipa but they were also the best value for money across all our trip in Peru. The Hotel is located in quite area just on the other side of St. Catalina Monastery and 5 minutes walk from main square. From the begging... More

This hotel is in a good location and our room was large and the paint was peeling off the ceiling and walls in the bathroom. There is a fridge with pay drinks and a free room safe. WIFI is free and works throughout the hotel. The staff are very helpful. Breakfast is par for the course. The courtyard and common... More

I travel to Peru frequently for work but don't have time to tour. However I took advantage of a free weekend to take a quick vacation to Aerquipa and Calco canyon with a friend. It was fast but a nice diversion. This hotel is a mid level hotel that was very pleasant, extremely well situated near the convent and downtown.... More

Excellent location in front of monastery . Beautiful grounds very quaint and tranquil. The hotel itself is gorgeous with unique details and design. Rooms were cute and spacious. Breakfast is simple but enough. Cold cuts cheeses cereals coffee. We looked at two different rooms when we checked in. Room 203 had a big matrimonial bed but it was quite small... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and found the hotel very beautiful with a small courtyard in the front, very helpful and friendly staff and a decent breakfast buffet. The location is also great as the hotel is only a very short walk from the center of Arequipa and close to many restaurants and bars. Would definitely stay... More

This hotel is very nice, but with a little attention to customer's needs it could be an excellent hotel. They deliver everything they promise in the ads, but I have to agree with the previous reviewers about the first impression one might get at arrival. Those teenagers working at the reception desk do not strike you like professionals, they seem... More

This hotel has some excellent features and a few really poor ones. It was the worst we stayed at in Peru by far (out of 6 hotels). It felt as if the owner wasn't really around and left it in charge of college kids who simply didn't care. Let's start with the good: Location -- adjacent to the gorgeous Santa... More

We stayed there a couple of nights and we loved it! The hotel is very well located only minutes walk from Plaza de Armas. We went for a superior room, a bit more expensive than the standard ones, but by reading some comments, we did well! our room was on the 3rd floor and very spacious, bright with the bathtub... More

The entrance to this hotel was a pleasing sight after our long business days. Our room was in the second floor overlooking the patio. Very quiet, except for the birds that started singing early in the morning ;). Breakfast was OK. Most importantly, the coffee was good enough. The beds were VERY comfortable. The shower, however, required surgical precision to... More

This hotel has a beautiful sunny courtyard at the front and a number of other interesting outdoor areas to relax in. Our room on level 3 had wonderful views to the surrounding mountains. The hotel is well located about 5-10 minutes to the main attractions and restaurants. The room and bathroom were very modern and well appointed. The breakfasts are... More
