“Feel like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I used to have long stays at this hotel while working for Major Peru S.A. in mining exploration in Peru and every time I used to feel like home with the environment, the friendly staff and a good restaurant downstairs.
The owners, Elsa and her brother also own The Sol de Mayo Restaurant where they serve the best "cuy Chactado" in all of southern Peru. They also have a similar hotel at the Cañon del Colca Valley.
If I ever go back to Arequipa I would definetely stay at this place again and again and again.

Room Tip: The suites will make you feel more like home.

This is a great hotel in Arequipa in convenient walking distance to the historic center of town. The hotel has a nice layout and is a great value for money. The lobby seemed to be recently renovated, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms behind the pool in the bungalows. They are a bit more charming than the ones close...

Clean and nicely operated. Wonderful staff. Food is also great, try the shrimp stuffed avocado. Not a single complaint in one month of stay. Had a smaller room for the first days, later changed a larger one.

La maison d'Elise is a very nice hotel, located in the centre of Arequipa. It is possible to get to the historic city centre on foot in only ten minutes. The hotel, as its name says, is a very confortable and well distributed group of houses, that somehow makes you feel at home. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very decent. So, in my opinion, la Maison d'Elise is a excellent choice for Arequipa at a very reasonable rate.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We were at this hotel January 29 through January 31, 2013. The staff were very attentive and did their best to accommodate any need we had. We had room #35 and it was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water for showering. There was no exhaust fan in bathroom which made the mirror fog up everytime the shower was used. There was a TV. We had asked for a matrimonial room and were given a room with two beds but each was big enough for two people so it was not a real problem for us. There is a pool which was clean but water was very cold. There is also poolside a rock waterfall which they did not turn on until the last day we were there. The morning breakfast was average at best: Wet scrambled eggs, toast/bread, OJ, cereal and yogurt. There was also bacon. We ate dinner there and the dinner menu and food were above average but nothing to write home about. In front of the hotel is a cute park with live alpacas tied up to a tree. The hotel is within walking distance of the plaza de armas and downtown about 3/4 of a mile or so. The hotel was given a **** rating but I would give it a 3.5 star. Of course there is no A/C in the room so we had to go outside to keep cool a bit. There was an ozone filter machine which we used as a fan to keep cool. Overall I would recomment the hotel. It is nice and clean and with a great staff of people to assist you.

Room Tip: Room #35 gets the morning sun..Try to ask for a room on North or South so you don't get the full...
