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.

This hostal surprised me. Entering through a very modest doorway into the small reception area, it comes as something of a shock to walk through tree shaded colonial-style courtyards, up stairs or through the pretty and tidy gardens to your sillar-walled room. The rooms themselves are relatively spartan, but with comfortable beds, spotlessly clean bathroom, cable, LCD TV, and phone... More

We arrrived in Arequipa on a beautiful sunny morning after having spent the overnight on the Cruz del Sur bus from Nazca. Even though it was early we had no problem checking in, maybe also due to the low season in december. Rooms are so full of character, decorated with a lot of colonial accents. Breakfast was simple but tasty,... More

I loved this place, the rooms were all different lots of antiques and the halls and courtyards ooze charm and a historic ambiance. The gardens are beautiful, the staff friendly. The only compliant is the room smelled a little musty.

We've stayed at La Casa de Melgar three times now, in 2009, in 2011, and now this year. My husband, a university professor, has brought a different group of students each time. with essentially the same itinerary. I've stayed on an extra day for the past two times, as Arequipa and this hostal have become favorites of mine. Each time... More

My wife and I stayed there on our honeymoon. We were both very taken by the beauty of this rustic villa. The breakfast food itself was good but not impressive. However, the breakfast area looks out into a beautiful little garden of big flower bushes that attracts hummingbirds and other cute little animals. The rooms are rustic but in the... More

It has courtyards and an interesting structure, tasty breakfast, and is a peaceful retreat from the city. We loved our room off in a little corner of a courtyard where we heard birds chirping merrily each morning. The style is eclectic. Shower water was hot and plentiful. Wifi worked fine. The breakfast was a buffet of fruit, yogurt, puffed quinoa,... More
