Loved this property, the staff where great, always smiling, the location put us close to the centre of the old city and the main attractions. The Nunnery, the markets the Plaza de Amos, were all close by. The gave us great advice on where to eat so we were able to have traditional Peruvian food. View from our room include... More

Contrary to some of the reviews, we found staff attentive and friendly. The place has its charm with a nice little courtyard, and colonial touch. It is also very central to Arequipa, a 3 min walk to Plaza de Arma. Room 301 had a great view on the volcanos, was roomy and light, yet missed any charm.

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
