Very pretty hotel in a very quiet neighborhood. Friendly staff. My room was large and very comfortable. Only downside was that it was just off the lobby and opened onto a courtyard that was a passage to other rooms so I needed to keep the drapes closed to have any privacy. Comfortable outside space and decent breakfast. It's a 10-15... More

We have just finished a two week stay at La Gruta. We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel since the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the shower is very good. We stayed in a suite and found the rate to be very reasonable, since it included transportation to and from the airport and also a... More

Stayed here at the end of our motorcycle trip through Peru. Not a coincidence since the hotel owners also run PeruMotors for excellent motorcycle tours. The hotel is in a quiet residential neighborhood in easy walking distance from the main square. Makes for a nice combination of quiet sleeping and being close to the attractions of Arequipa in walking distance.... More

Set in a really quiet and safe neighbourhood, the price was fairly reasonable. Clean room with really good showers. Only downside was when I booked it, it said king and they gave us a double and single and didn't really understand what I meant when I questioned it but nonetheless they were extremely helpful.

A very nice, clean hotel in a quiet residential neighborhood a 10 or 15 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. Really a great location if you don't mind the short walk... the payoff is tranquility. No barking dogs, honking horns or roosters. There's a great yard in which to relax and the staff is great.

I stayed in the Hostal for 3 nights to wander around an see Arequipa. While others tend to want to stay in the center of town, i slept in La Gruta which is about 5 Minutes by taxi (4 Soles) and was happy i did, because the short distance assured higher safety and no constant honking and exhaust fumes south...

Very nice, clean and friendly hotel in a quiet residential area just outside the centre of Arequipa. The Plaza de Armas is within easy reach, only about 15min by foot walking at a leisurely pace. The rooms are clean and our room was quite big as well. The hotel also has free wifi and two PCs with internet access free... More

Comfortable and clean hotel with attentive English speaking staff in quiet location. Nice leisurely 15 minute walk to Plaza de Armas and many restaurants. Inexpensive taxi ride to hotel in the evening. Very good breakfast included. Two nice courtyards with lawns, many flowering plants and furniture for reading or just relaxing. Good cable television (if you must see the Superbowl).... More

We stayed here on two occasions, leaving our luggage between visits. The hotel is clean and secure, with friendly and helpful staff and a couple of nice courtyards. The only downside is the park at night, which sits between the hotel and the city centre/restaurant area. We walked home in the dark on 3 evenings with no problems, but I... More

Lovely place situated away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but still within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas and restaurants. A private courtyard and gardens out the back to relax in the sunshine. Rooms are clean, water is hot, and staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast included but small meals and drinks also available throughout the day... More
