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

First, location is fantastic. accessible to all restaurants and sights nearby such as Monasterio and La cathedral. We took the junior suite, which is much expensive than the regular room, but views are great. Comfortable beds, but i found that i had sleeping problems in this hotel. For what reasons, i don't know - maybe altitude, but i didn't had... More

We brought our family here and they were very excited with quaintness of this hotel. The courtyard is full of flowering plants and the view to El Misti volcano is great. The rooms are a little small and basic, but they were clean and the beds were very comfortable. It's adjacent to the Monastery, one of the city's top sites.

The hotel looked great - nice courtyard, lovely spaces inside and out for guest relaxation. Our room was on 3rd floor (bit of a bummer climbing the stairs) but great views over the city and such a modern and comfortable room. We had a bath with full window view! The location is really good - just across the street from... More

I stayed here as part of a group tour and loved it. It is a small and friendly establishment with rooms arranged around a courtyard. My room, downstairs, was huge with two big beds and plenty of space around them. I was very close to the entrance to reception but there was no issue with noise at all. The breakfast... More

Lovely garden setting, healthy, fresh breakfast, welcoming staff, economical, wonderful location, ....La Hosteria is high on our list of accommodations in our three week visit to Peru. Upon our arrival, we were told that we had been upgraded because there was availability and they like to offer the best rooms available to guests. We had a beautiful view and in-... More
