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

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.

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
