The aspect that stands out the most to me about Posada el Castillo is the friendly owner who hosted us during our stay. She was always very pleasant and kind and made us feel very welcome. She was also very helpful providing advice about where to eat and what to see and answering all the many questions we had and she even out on the street to get us a taxi. She got up whenever we needed to leave early to to have breakfast ready, once at 4:00 in the morning before our trek. And speaking of the breakfast, this place had the best breakfast we enjoyed the entire time we stayed in Peru. Great variety and fresh and tasty juices.

The B&B has beautiful gardens and even though we didn't use it, a nice clean pool. We stayed in the main house in two suite rooms with lovely adjoining balconies. The rooms were larger than we expected and the rooms and bathrooms were always clean. Since the location is in a residential area it is much quieter than staying downtown, yet the central plaza was only a 20 minute walk or a 5 soles taxi ride away. The also provided pick up from the airport which was really nice and convenient.

I also appreciated the fact that they have FREE Wifi and it always worked while we were there from the rooms. While traveling that is a huge factor for me since I am always checking for information and emails.

My only suggestion would be to accept payment with credit cards. It would be much more convenient for guests, even if there were a slight surcharge added.

Bottom Line, Great place to stay in Arequipa and the quiet location, great service and nice facilities make it a good value for the money.

Very nice hotel, perfect location as it is close to the city (we walked there) but it is in a very quiet area.

The house is 100 years old and has a lovely architecture.

Service was fantastic, the owner was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at 8AM and they allowed us to have an early check-in.

Breakfast was very generous and it was delicious.

Believe it or not, at the back of the restaurant they have 5 pre-inca graves which guests from the hotel can visit. Apparently the property was built over a pre-inca cementery.

Very nice hotel offering great service.

Room Tip: Pay for the suite if you want to stay in the big house

I found this hotel in a website. When I first saw it, I thought it was a bit more expensive than the other hotels around, but it is worth it every penny.
When we first got in Arequipa it was late at night. We had to take a cab at the bus station. The problem was that nobody knew where the street was. We got there, finally...but it was very confusing. There is a main street nearby, so you should keep record of it's name.
The hotel is not 24/07, that's the only negative point. But overall, it is very clean, cozy and friendly. You can order something special for breakfast and the hostess is very nice. She will help you whenever you need. The location is also excellent, just a few blocks from downtown. I recommend it!

Posada el Castillio was perfect! The property is perfectly maintained, our room was spanking clean, roomy and comfortable. The breakfast which was included was fresh, delicious and plenty of variety. It was an easy walk to the plaza. The owner is delghtful and was very attentive to our needs.
