Stayed here for 2 nights on our recent trip to Peru. Beautiful hotel in historic old building only a couple of blocks from the main square. The rooms are set around courtyards in a moorish style. We were in room 121 which was the furthest away from the entrance and a bit of a maze to get to, but well... More

I absolutely loved this cute hostel tucked away on Melgar street. The cute courtyards are reminiscent of Europe. I completely fell in love! Our hostel was definitely a highlight of our trip. We stayed in room 116 which was almost to the far back of the complex. Our room was equipped with two twin beds, a clean shower/bathroom with towels... More

The best: the best wi-fi we encountered in Peru. Works well in every room despite the colonial thick stone walls. kudos! The good: most rooms are large, with rounded ceilings (earthquake precaution), the gardens and settings are lovely. The bad: worst breakfast in 23 days in country- fresh fruit: tangerine, one hard roll, one sugared breakfast cereal, precooked scrambled eggs... More

Didn't really know what to expect. We drew up outside an unassuming frontage in an Arequipa side street and entered into a small reception. Formalities over very efficiently we found that the hotel was an old colonial house with several courtyards and a charming small garden. Our room was huge with a high barrel vaulted ceiling - a bit dark... More

Loved this place, it was close to everythign and rather inexpensive. the other best part was there where lots of people to meet, I found it very close to the nightlife and there was even a free walking tour that began only a block from my hostel. Overall im very happy and would do it again. I traveled with GoMochilero... More

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
