Arequipa is a fantastic city but it's noise is almost ever present. In this hotel with it's beautiful courtyards there is a respite from the chaos outside. I had a room facing the street but the sillar (stone) walls are great insulators against noise. The breakfast buffet is generous and delicious. Compared to other hotels in it's pricepoint throughout Peru,... More

Loved this quaint little place close to the main Plaza. I had a room at the very back near the garden, so no wifi, but it did have a kettle & tea bags plus mini bar (well stocked), safe & peacefully quiet from the constant car horns that are Peru. The sillar walls are lovely. The large shower was almost... More

This beautiful old mansion is one of the loveliest places I have stayed. Spacey, vaulted rooms, delightful patios, great breakfast, and friendly, helpful staff - what more can you ask? I shall return whenever possible.

The Hotel itself is very beautiful, super atmosphere, nice garden, even to sunbath if you want to, very quiet in central Arequipa, one feels like being transported to colonial times. The rooms are also very beautiful and clean, staff is friendly and helping, good breakfast. But there is a big BUT: the bed, talking about the mattress, is unacceptable. (... More

Beware all travellers! Although this hostel is in a lovely spot and the staff are tidy and helpful, prices seem to have gone up hugely from every guidebook and the prices on the hostel website are misleading. Extra charges and hidden costs were added without warning to our bill, and we observed that we were not the only ones that... More

Some guidebooks may show this as Hostal Casona Solar. It's the same place but is defo a hotel now. And a gorgeous one at that, a couple of blocks from the Plaza de Armas. You walk through the front door and instantly you've escaped from the chaos outside. Excellent breakfasts cooked by supremely attentive Abél. Main morning receptionist can appear... More

Wow. This hotel was once the house of some early Peruvian president or such, and it is just a great place to stay for the price and location. First, the staff and managers are all nice and interested in helping you enjoy Arequipa -- which is a laid back city with food and strolling and nearby places to hike and... More

Great location 2 blocks from main square and reasonable price. Beautiful old house in white rock with beautiful internal courtyard. Modern bathrooms with lots of water pressure. Triple room easily fits family of four.

I stayed at this charming hotel with my daughter for 3 nights and loved the place. The service was terrific and friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts were very good. No complaints at all. I recommend it highly.

We were recently in Arequipa for a wedding and stayed at this charming inn downtown. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is excellent for seeing the sights of downtown Arequipa. The building has been restored and gives and very authentic feel of what an old colonial house looked like.
