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Bathroom bit outdated and not super clean but oke.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!

The hotel was friendly and inexpensive. It has a nice courtyard and also an upstairs patio which is comfortable to hang around in. The hotel is gated and secure and very close (walking) to attractions such as the Monestario, the plaza de armas, etc. The hotel allowed us to check out at 6:30pm on our last day for a small...

We stayed 3 nights, the staff is really friendly and helpful (not all of them speak good English but they are very nice). They gave us advices on what to do and booked all our trips and gave good recommendations for restaurants. The hotel is cute with many flowers and plants. The rooms are big enough and clean. The plugs... More

They allowed us to check in @ 7 am on the day of the arrival. Breakfast was ok. Proximity to an old town is perfect too! They also have ancient Roman... More

I spent four nights with La Hosteria and can unreservedly recommend it. While all staff I met were fantastic, I am particularly grateful to Jessica who went the extra mile to help me plan activities while in Arequipa. Loved the in-house massage and Roman baths experience and the breakfast was a great start to each day. I found La Hosteria... More

Arequipa was our first stop in Peru and it was also our first time in South America so we didn't have any expectations with regards to accomodation. And it turned out that La Hosteria is an authentic, colonial, family-run hotel with pretty much everything you need during your stay. It's also conveniently located - a 2-3 minute walk from the...
