In the heart of downtown Arequipa--and, really, there's very little to see or do outside that central area--La Hostería offered us the best location for our visit. It's an old house now adapted to house guests, but the feel of the place, especially the common areas--the downstairs patio, the upstairs terrace with a view to the snow-capped mountains over the gushing bougainvillea--is that of staying at a friend's house. An affluent friend, to be sure: antique Spanish tile everywhere, expensive carpeting, a colonial stone staircase under a skylight that helps several potted plants thrive... Our room was comfortable, the beds good, the duvet warm enough to kick off in the middle of the night, and that view to the mountains! Service was excellent in every way--demure staff, helpful and polite in the best Peruvian tradition. We loved it.
