We stayed at this hotel purely for the price. Little did we know that it's so far out from the city. 10km one way. That means 40 soles to and from the hotel everyday. With that money you could just upgrade to a nicer place downtown. The staff was nice but the lack of cleanliness and distance and noise at... More

My husband and I had two very comfy nights here. The hotel is out of central Arequipa so it was a quiet and relaxing place to be. The hotel offers a free shuttle into the centre in the morning so we didn't miss out on any of the sights. We didn't take the return shuttle which runs at 5 but... More

Nice and relaxing place, little out of the way from the city. there is a shuttle that takes you to the city square twice in the morning and returns back at 5 pm. Nice breakfast in the morning, but sometimes not ready when it opens the door. Friendly and helpful staff, most of them speak English.

Map of location is off by 45 minutes drive, street repairs require exerting from service entrance, crossing a soccer field, to find that there is no heat or AC in the hotel. Restaurant and bar during evening hours are as cold as a walk-in cooler. Food was less than average in quality. Requested an iron to spiff up my shirts,... More

We were only supposed to stay at El Lago Estelar one night, but extended our stay because we liked the hotel so much. The grounds are spacious and home to various pets (ducks, llamas, horses), as well as a pool, soccer field, and small pond with kayaks and paddleboats for guests. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable, with WiFi,... More

I was in a short vacation with my family and we had good days. The breakfast is good as well as the food for lunch and dinner - I recommend "El doble"- Clean pool, games for kids and space to play soccer, volleyball and to run or just read un the yard. The hotel is in the middle of the... More

I took my family for a quick get away and this is a great place in Arequipa's countryside, away from the noise and city crazyness. However it is a little too far from downtown Arequipa where most of the attractions are located. If you just want a place to rest, this is a great hotel, very quiet. However if you... More

This hotel is located in the middle of the country in Arequipa and is equipped with swimming pool and a large natural park of lawn. The room is large and conformable, but very very cold without any possibility of heating. The restaurant is also very cold as for the diner where a fire was in the hearth but any strong... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel felt really relaxed. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The hotel has its own restaurant and the food was very tasty. I was pleased to see that they also had a selection of vegetarian meals. The pool area was clean and tidy and... More
