“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

stayed here for two nights and i loved it.
Nice cosy place and i loved the layout with all the small buildings and the garden with the pool and all the charis and benches.
Lovely staff, many of them do speak english and easy to get aroud Arequipe. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk form the shopping and restaurant district and also close to the santa catalina monastary.

The rooms are ok, a little worn, but not bad at all. the hotel has free wifi which works quite well.
The bathrooms are ok: the water pressure it not great but it gets the job done, much better than other places i have stayed.

The beds are comfy and soft, but in the winter time at night you might get a little cold, so either ask for blanket or wear some layers before you go to bed.

The breakfast is awesome:
the have fresh juice: orange, pinapple, cereals, fruits, jams, cheese, eggs, tomatoes, breds, rolls, te and coffee.

It is ok for one or two nights to visit the city, but it is very amateuristically build, and needs a mayor overhaul, everything looks worn out, the pool is not regularly cleaned, the footsteps in the sand on the bottom were the same 2 days later, the sunbathing chairs look dirty so look the mattresses, and the chairs and tables at the breakfast place.

This hotel really deserves its 3 star designation. On the north end of the tourist district, La Casa de mi Abuela gets its share of tour groups and manages them well. Rooms are in two and three story buildings scattered around a large, grassy courtyard that includes a small pool. A double rents for S/59 and an excellent (and al fresco) buffet breakfast was S/15. Rooms are small but full featured. There's a strong and steady wi-fi signal in the rooms. A stellar new hotel near Colca Canyon, La Casa de Mamayacchi, is under the same management.

I do not recognise this hotel from some of the immediately preceding reviews. We found it comfortable and quiet apart from various nearby animals. Lovely gardens. Delicious breakfast. Restaurant could have been better but it was adequate. Walking distance to the cathedral and the monastery. Also don't miss the big food market just beyond the plaza major.

Room Tip: First floor is much better than ground floor

I am at this hotel as I write this review. As a solo female traveler, I was placed at the far end of the property with what sounds like a chicken/ rooster farm over the brick wall. I heard the roosters crowing much of the night. The sound of footsteps, toilet flushing, tv, and bed springs in the room above are noisy. The room is outdated but clean. There is no hair dryer in this room. I cannot log on to the supposed wi-fi and have had to find a common area to use my computer. The shower head drips a thin stream of water.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: I am trying to find another room in this hotel. I have no idea if there is a good one here.

Lovely hotel; the rooms were cosy, clean and comfortable and the staff were super friendly and helpful (including an immediate express back to the airport to retrieve a coat). The hotel is located just 15-20 mins walk from the main plaza which was perfect for us in terms of (less) noise at night, but convenient location nonetheless. Breakfast was varied and delicious.
