This hotel is really really average. The level of english of the reception is quite low. Rooms are clean but the water is not hot enough (at least for my wife). It s well located nearby the main square but doesn t seem a hotel for tourists (who want to relax and enjoy their trip), it s much more for... More

I stayed at the Hotel Crismar while on a medical mission in Arequipa. The hotel was simple but was very accomodating to the entire group of volunteers. The staff was very friendly and the meals were good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel's location was the highlight- it was in walking distance to everything you wanted to see... More

I stayed in this hotel with my mom for just three days and found the place nice. The property is really beautiful and the service is top class. Aside from special comfort, wonderful staff and excellent food the location of the hotel is also one of the reasons that I loved this place. Santa Catalina convent, the Plaza de Armas,... More

The hotel is located right in the centre, just a short walk away from the Santa Catalina convent and the Plaza de Armas, and with many restaurants and tour companies in the adjoining streets. The hotel is decent, but must have been built a few decades ago as the furniture, sheets and everything else were a bit oldfashioned. Our room... More

Old hotel, reasonable well kept in the center of town, really close to the main square, to the cathedral, to the coventry of Santa Catalina and to a reasonable number of good restaurants (even when most of the best ones with tipical cuisine are a little away from downtown), and a couple decent bars and discos. I use to come... More

Rooms were very clean, but simple. Beds were more comfortable than most in Peru. Shower was excellent! The staff were very friendly and helpful; they even stored luggage for us when we did an overnight excursion to the Colca Canyon. Good central location - 2 blocks off the Plaza de Armas, one block from the main pedestrian shopping street. Would... More

This hotel is overpriced, dirty rooms with bedding that does not fit the beds leaving large sections of the mattresses exposed - took an hour and four calls to get sheets onto the beds. Room was cramped and the noise from the casino and the smell of smoke was unbelievable. Great location but if you can, go somewhere else.

The Hotel Crismar is the place to stay in Arequipa. It is centrally located across the street from the Post Office and two blocks from the Plaza de Armas. Karin and Bernie DioGuardi who own and manage the hotel are a delight. They are fluent in English and willing to go out of their way to be helpful. All of... More

We had one night here and arrived late afternoon. The staff on duty at reception did not speak English, but were cheerful and friendly. The room was small, but had large comfortable beds and a tv. The bathroom was large and well appointed. There was no heating or cooling, but the late afternoon sun streaming through the window kept the... More

I stayed at the Crismar for one month (got a job in Arequipa for the summer), so I think I know what I am talking about. The Crismar is a basic, nice hotel. Location is great (walking distance to most of the Arequipa highlights: Plaza de Armas, Catedral, Iglesia de los Jesuitas, Convento de Santa Catalina, calle San Francisco, etc.);... More
