Good location, few minutes walk down popular street with restaurants, cafes, to plaza. Secure. Quiet. Beautiful conglomeration of rooms and courtyards, lovely garden setting for breakfast. High ceilings, wooden doors, aged furniture, lovely wood floor. Lots hot water. Very comfy super sized king bed! Cable TV in room, spotty wifi which was fine in garden. If only there had been...

This hostel is really cosy and pretty. I was in a tiny room by myself which was nice. It had incredibly thick walls and I had my own bathroom with a nice warm shower. Extra blankets provided which was nice, plus it had a TV and free wifi. Friendly staff around at all times and a nice yummy breakfast served... More

The hotel complex is large with rooms well spread out on two levels. You don't feel crowded as different areas are separated by paths, gardens and small outside areas. Rooms are large with very high ceilings (16') and thick (2') stone/concrete walls. It used to be a monastery. It is very quiet at night. Each room has an adjoining bathroom... More

We stumbled across this place and were surprised how lovely and large it is. Most of the space seems to be gardens and courtyards, which are lovely, with pretty flowers and birds. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is an old colonial house, so it has some of the charm and character associated. Don't expect much modernity, it is... More

Beautiful and classic a colonial Home that has been restored into a peaceful bed and breakfast. The rooms are kept with their character and offer a special experience.the garden within the walls is beautiful and we would stay here again. Breakfast was lovely and the staff very friendly . Try the cereal with the sweet yogurt

Average hotel in a good location a close walk from the centre of Arequipa. The breakfast we had in a covered area next to the pleasant arden was one of the most limited selections we have had in Peru. Good if you just like scrambled eggs and hard rolls! The staff cannot speak English so take your phrase book if... More

This place was just the reprieve we travel-weary souls needed. It turned out to be close to our favourite places (Monastery Santa Catalina, Chaqchao chocolate museum and Plaza de Armas). The friendly staff helped us with our needs and gave us the space to enjoy our stay. Our room was glorious (it almost felt as if it could have been... More

I've stayed at Hostal La Casa De Melgar twice and would definitely stay there again. We were on a multi-city trek through three countries and spent extra days in Arequipa to treat ourselves to some unscheduled "down time". Melgar is the perfect setting for this. The rooms are rustic but comfortable. If you like exposed 300-year-old stone and brick walls... More

Beautiful hostel, located in the center of Arequipa. We saw three rooms, all different. Quiet and relaxing rooms and patios. Good wifi connection and nice breakfast. AND the staff is nice. What else can you ask for?...

Charming mansion turned into a hotel with beautiful gardens. The rooms are large and have lots of character. Breakfasts are average. The hotel is just a few blocks from the main plaza and close to many good restaurants.
