This hostel exceeded my expectations in every way. It was clean, the rooms were spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The room also includes free towels. The most outstanding part was its staff though. We arrived at 10am but they allowed us to check in early without charging extra. The airline lost my luggage and they were very helpful... More

Very nice hostal with clean and big rooms. Very quiet place. Pleasant and helpful staff. It is at about 10 minutes walking from Plaza de Armas and Market of San Camillo. The breakfast was simple but good.

The minute I came in there I was happily surprised. The staff welcomed me with great enthusiasm and showed me the hostal. The place was spotless clean and the room was very nice. It felt good to be there compared to some places you end up in when travelling in many countries. It was a little expensive in comparison with... More

A friend and I spent a couple nights in Arequipa during a 2-1/2 week trip around Peru in October. I actually booked a room at the El Patio de Elisa, but when we checked in they were out of rooms with two beds, so the staff walked us over to Hostel Santa Marta. It worked out well as we were...

I discovered this hotel by accident, while taking a cab out of the bus terminal. My goal was simple: locate a nice, quaint, safe, relaxing hotel that is located close to the older downtown area. Needless to say, this place worked is perfect for a one-nighter and/or for a couple of days. The staff are nice, the design of the... More

Lovely old building across the road from a police station! Simple and spacious rooms, clean and well maintained. I slept well (without earplugs), despite the fluffy pillow. Nice, standard Peruvian breakfast. We left our luggage during the day, dropping in and out as required. There is a toilet for guests in such a situation. Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Recommended.

Good room with clean bed and hot shower. Nice patio outside where you can enjoy a beer or two :) Juan was lovely and gave me all information about Arequipa and main attractions. in 10 minutes walk you will be in the main square. Good value for money if you are on a budget without compromising your stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Santa Marta Hotel is located in the center of Arequipa, four blocks from the main square, "Plaza de Armas." Arequipa is one of the principal cities in the south of Peru. The hotel provides its guests with superior, high quality service enhanced by the warm, welcoming hospitality of our staff. The colonial-era architecture of the hotel is remarkable with vaulted ceilings and walls. Ornamental friezes and cornices decorate the doorways and windows and magically transport our guests back to a more leisurely time. The building is constructed of white volcanic rock, commonly known as "sillar." ... more   less
