My girlfriend got a bad fever while we were there and they were really accommodating and helpful. Definitely recommend this place for a decent price and good... More

We enjoyed our two nights in this small hostel. The manager has excellent English, having lived in the US as a child. The room was of a good size. We had an extra bed on which to open our suitcases. It was relatively quiet, except for a few barking dogs one of the nights (but we have experienced his most... More

Very very nice hotel!!! We enjoied our stay there thanks to the very helpful and friendly staff! The rooms are confortable, some with private bathroom and some with shared bathroom. The hotel is in Arequipa historical center, just 5 minutes walk from the center! We recommend Villa Melgar!!!

We stayed in Villa Melgar on our way to Cusco, and were pleased with the basics of the accommodation: large room, with its own bathroom and hot shower and the breakfast. Much more impressive was the thoughtful, helpful personal service. We did not have to carry our own bags up the stairs and Sergio in particular helped us with taxis,... More

No share kitchen but breakfast provided and no common area. Good security, rooms were comfortable but it seems one... More

My travel took me back through Arequipa so I stayed at Villa Melgar again. It's refreshing to stay at a small spot after large noisy hostels. I had FAST wifi and Great CLEAN showers with very hot water. It was a place to recharge. Good location and a helpful owner who speaks amazing English which was nice after many weeks... More

The service here is like that of a 5-star hotel. Sergio, the manager, is great. Example- When I left for La Paz, I left behind my book in a restaurant in Arequipa. Sergio recovered the book for me, offered to arrange to have it sent to La Paz, and eventually held it for me when I passed back through Arequipa.... More
