Very nice plays that breaths a family home.

In Perú this was truly a hotel where I felt at... More

Dear Rocio, Thank you for taking some time to write a review about our hotel! Also good to hear that that you liked the town of your grandfather! To stay in a place that was already there when your grandfather still lived in Arequipa must have been a nice experience. Let’s go now to the buts! To start with I... More

VERY friendly and helpful staff, a variety of fascinating rooms (including an upstairs triple with a kitchenette), arrangements for airport transportation/taxis and laundry service (at least a day's notice). Nice small breakfast buffet, low-cost Internet access, lovely patio entry and a peaceful garden with huge succulents.

Rooms are big and comfortable, breakfast is good en the hotel staff is friendly and helpfull. Making it one of nicest hotels we staid in in Peru.

I was stunned when I saw our room in this old mansion from the colonial era. Everything about it was wonderful--very large, domed brick ceiling, comfy bed with good linens, very tasty breakfast with exotic fruit. The garden is large and perfectly tended--not a dead flower or leaf anywhere. I'd love to stay there again, and much longer this time.... More

In February we have traveled with our two kids (6 and 7) to Peru. We stayed for 10 days in hostal casona solar. The hotel is very centrally located and after the main gates, you will find an oase of tranquility in the busy city center of Arequipa. Very safe hostal for our children, as the gates are locked.
