this old hotel has a pretty good location cos it's a walking distance from the main square and the most important highlights of this amazing city. as i said the hotel is old as all the furnitures. we even had some problems with laundry. a bit disappointed.

I would avoid this place if possible. The rooms were awful, but I suppose there was a bed to sleep on. We were extremely disappointed to catch bed bugs in this hotel, which we have struggled to get rid of, costing us a fortune in laundry. There is also a very bitter old woman who I assume is the owner... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night and will definitely not be recommending it to anyone. While the location is good, the rooms were small and beds very uncomfortable. Showers were cold (unless you used them at unusual times) and the staff were incredibly unhelpful and even rude. We left some laundry at reception and it did not return... More

This hotel is located in a great spot for seeing the sites in Arequipa (honestly not that hard considering it is a pretty small town). At night the area around it is a little dodgy but nothing too bad, the whole town is just a little creepy at night. The hotel itself is not so great. There was very limited... More

My stay in this hotel was chaotic. I complained, by a bad phone connection we had in the room, of the lack of hot water (it was 9:30pm and no way I was taking a cold shower) and front desk was not in the mood of offer some help. After calling twice and finally decided to go downstairs for an... More

It's a small hotel close to the nice city of Arequipa The room themselves are old style but basically ok for the standard of the region, the point is that they are missing the basic service: no hot water or no water at all After kind complain nothing happened ...

Good size rooms with a comfortable bed. My room was at the back and surprisingly quiet for a city centre Hostal. Plenty of hot water. Wifi worked in my room as well as the public areas. Really helpful staff (the elderly lady was particularly friendly). Great location for exploring the city.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hostal Arequipa Inn. Great hints given on visiting the plaza and other interesting parts of Arequipa. Room was very comfortable, plenty of hot water and amenties and breakfast was better than some hotels in other Peruvian cities. Easy on the budget and central to many services. Les from Canada.

We really enjoyed our stay, we were made to feel very welcome. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and nice and quiet at night to sleep well. All the staff were very helpful and having the breakfast included was brilliant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
