The hotel looks in general very nice. The garden in front of the reception and the terrace look beautiful. The rooms are nice. The shower, well, the water pressure could be increased as it doesn't feel like to take a real shower. The breakfast was almost empty at 9am. We waited some time but they didn't brought anything more. The... More

This hotel was very lovely with gorgeous plants in the courtyards. The rooms were also quite nice, with lovely furnishings and a beautiful bathroom. The location was perfect, as it is right across from the Monastery and an easy walk to the square. Breakfast was also very good, as we typically had at all hotels on this trip. We also... More

When we arrived we got a room in ground floor wich has no windows except the door one. Be sure to get a room on the first or higher floor, unless you arent capable to get to the first floor. On the ground floor you cant see anything outside because of the walls. On the first floor there is a... More

Absolutely loved this hotel which was a perfect base for our stay in Arequipa. Great location next to the monastery (well worth a visit!) and a short walk from the main square. Lovely courtyards and terrace with great rooms and very helpful staff. Only slight negative was the breakfast which wasn't up to the standard of the Tierra Viva hotels... More

It is classified as Hostel, but actually it is more a Boutique Hotel, it has two beautiful courtyards, sunny with lots of plants. The bedrooms are 5 stars, have new tasteful furniture, big flatscreen tv, great beds and feather duvets, beautiful views, a bathtub in the bedroom, and great details in the spotless bathroom. There are a couple things that... More

Spent 4 nights in this cozy hotel. It is conveniently located right next to Santa Catalina Monastery. Staff was helpful but not above expectations. Breakfast was a bit repetitive but good and plenty. Our room was spacious and clean just as the bathroom. Unfortunately I do not remember our room number (401 maybe?) but the view of Chachani was truly... More

It’s very nice to hear good opinions about our hostel, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay with us. In the other hand La Hosteria staff take really serious your recommendations about breakfast and considering your opinion we have change a little our breakfast situation, very soon we will also offer “TAMALITOS” and some other things. We hope our... More

Nice, comfortable, affordable, cozy hotel with character and a beautiful courtyard just a short walk from many city sights and restaurants. Rooms were spacious, clean, and updated. WiFi was the fastest we had in Peru. Our room even had a jacuzzi tub. Safety box in the room, though ours was not functioning. Breakfast was satisfactory and included. Hotel was more... More

The old colonial building with beautiful patios and courtyard is lovely. Views are beautiful. The hotel is in an ideal spot, very close to the old convent, Santa Catalina, and downtown. Our room on the 2nd ifloor was spacious and bright. However, It had a bizarre submarine-like pinging sound, and when we told the management about it, they said they... More

Is good to know that you liked our place in general, on the other hand we took seriously the suggestions or critics from our guest that is why the problem of the sound that had to do with the ventilation system in the room has been solved. Also we are constantly checking the breakfast offered by the hotel same as... More

Stayed in 8 hotels in Peru during 3 week trip in April and this was the best. After long haul from Australia, definitely worth paying the top end of of our budget for this room. Airport pickup was great, staff very welcoming, lovely building, big room, fabulous view and fantastic mattress. Lots of great common areas, including the lovely courtyard.... More
