The staff at this place are nice people, and try to be helpful, but they don't seem to be able to get it quite right. When I arrived, the room was beautiful with a great view of the volcanoes (room 305) but on closer inspection was not well cleaned. I was booked in for two nights. On the first night,... More

La Hosteria is a converted posada with lush garden spaces and several different public spaces and patios were you can catch stunning views of all three volcanoes and Andes. Easy to find and close to the lovely Plaza De Armes and across the street from the amazing St. Catalina Monestary, La Hosteria is a patch of calm in bustling Arequipa.

I stayed at La Hostería for a week while helping a team work with our church in the area. The hotel itself has many charming features, including patios both on the first and second floor with tables, chairs and umbrellas. The downstairs patio has a fountain as well and lovely gardens. The hotel is located behind the Santa Catalina convent... More

This has been the best accomodation so far of our trip. Our room was beautiful with plenty of space and overlooking sunny patios and gardens. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The location could not have been better for sightseeing and eating out.

The hotel was lovely when we first arrived. Quick check in and got in our room early (which was great after a 12 hour overnight bus journey). Room was fantastic, couldn't have asked for better. Hotel very centrally located, close to all amenities, central square and restaurants. Decided just to eat in the hotel restaurant at night as it had... 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.

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
