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

I really enjoyed my two nights here. The courtyard and upper patio were beautiful - just as you see in the pictures. My room was pleasant enough, nothing outstanding but comfortable. Staff were very helpful and spoke some English - helped me by making a reservation at a very popular restaurant with fifteen minutes notice. Tea and coffee (and coca... More

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
