I was there with my family (2 children & my wife) for 3 weeks last summer. My wife is from Arequipa so we were 15 minutes away by car from her parents house. We spent 3 wonderful weeks @ this hotel and were treated very well by all the staff (dining room, cleaning ladies, front desk). The food is excellent,... More

The hotel is a few kilometers from the Plaza de Armas; without traffic a taxi needs 20-25 minutes to get to the center. This makes the hotel unattractive for a short stay in Arequipa. We also found the service lacking, no help in unloading luggage from the car to the rooms. At first we were assigned an uncleaned room, but... More

The building it self is nice, but in need of some renovations, nothing major, but bits and pieces all over. The rooms are big and nice, but no heating or air conditioning. It was a bit chilly at night, but not to bad. The worst part is the bathroom floor - that was freezing. The no heating seems to be... More

We stayed at this hotel purely for the price. Little did we know that it's so far out from the city. 10km one way. That means 40 soles to and from the hotel everyday. With that money you could just upgrade to a nicer place downtown. The staff was nice but the lack of cleanliness and distance and noise at... More

My husband and I had two very comfy nights here. The hotel is out of central Arequipa so it was a quiet and relaxing place to be. The hotel offers a free shuttle into the centre in the morning so we didn't miss out on any of the sights. We didn't take the return shuttle which runs at 5 but... More

Nice and relaxing place, little out of the way from the city. there is a shuttle that takes you to the city square twice in the morning and returns back at 5 pm. Nice breakfast in the morning, but sometimes not ready when it opens the door. Friendly and helpful staff, most of them speak English.

Map of location is off by 45 minutes drive, street repairs require exerting from service entrance, crossing a soccer field, to find that there is no heat or AC in the hotel. Restaurant and bar during evening hours are as cold as a walk-in cooler. Food was less than average in quality. Requested an iron to spiff up my shirts,... More

We were only supposed to stay at El Lago Estelar one night, but extended our stay because we liked the hotel so much. The grounds are spacious and home to various pets (ducks, llamas, horses), as well as a pool, soccer field, and small pond with kayaks and paddleboats for guests. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable, with WiFi,... More
