Stayed at this hotel twice in a number of short days and really enjoyed it both times. Rooms are excellent, we even got upgraded the second time without asking which was fantastic. Hotel is perfectly located and really beautifully decorated, defiantly a hidden gem. Staff were also fantastically helpful with an issue we had over a missing bag.

This hotel is stunning - we stayed in 2 different rooms, both were lovely with different views of the city and volcanoes. Hot water, good wifi, and walking distance to the main square. The staff were also super helpful, letting us use the phone on many occasions and storing our luggage while we did the colca canyon

We loved this hotel. It has so many areas to sit and relax surrounded by flowers and mountain views. The public areas are delightful, furnished with colonial antiques. We had a standard room which was very comfortable. Good toiletries, water and a daily chocolate were thoughtful touches. Breakfasts were fine. There are spa facilities and a 'Roman bath' for ten...

This hotel can be amazing or terrible depending on which rooms you have. We travelled as a family of four, my husband and I and our 21 and 18 year olds. We had a lovely room at the top. Their room was on the ground floor leading from the courtyard. As a result they had virtually no natural light -... More

Stayed here on our last night in South Peru and booked two standard rooms through booking.com. Check in was reasonably quick and first impressions were good. The hotel is located on a busy side street but reception is through a lovely courtyard and you leave the street noise behind a bit. We were upgraded to two superior rooms I think... More

The location is perfect - just hidden in a courtyard, just next to the monastery and very close to Plaza de Armas. The two receptionists were very kind. The little (!) Spa for only 10 USD (incl. a Pisco Sour) is really worth booking if you want to relax. There are several little nice terraces in the quaint hotel complex.... More

Had high expectations of this place with its historical charm and great pictures on the website but we were extremely disappointed. It all started when the very unfriendly receptionist did not find our reservations which were made five months ago through a travel agent. She said the hotel was full but after calling the manager, she suddenly had a room... More

The room was renovated and was very nice, however there was a balcony door that didn't provide any isolation and so there was a lot of noise from the busy road behind the hotel. The breakfast was very basic for such a hotel and the price we paid. We had a tour so we had to leave at 7.30, the... More

Situated a ten minute walk from La Plaza de Armas, La Hosteria is ideally placed for the main attractions of the lovely city of Arequipa. The simple rooms are clean with mini bar and safe. There are three area's in the lovely terrace to sit and admire the volcano El Misti.

Bathroom bit outdated and not super clean but oke. Breakfast was really basic, better in town. Ask for a room on the first or second floor because room 102 is pretty noisy. You hear everything that happens in the patio. Massages were really good!
