Azul Colonial
Ranked #11 of 181 Arequipa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I do some of my work in Arequipa and so have stayed in many hotels in Arequipa over the last several years and Azul Colonial Inn is undoubtedly the loveliest place I have stayed, and for the price cannot be beat. The hotel is about two blocks above the Yanahuara plaza, but it is within walking distance of the city center if that is where you want to go. The courtyard was quiet and beautifully appointed with colorful, comfy-looking couches. The room I stayed in was also beautiful and the bright colors were handled in a very tasteful way, making it cheerful, not garish. As essentially a solo business traveler I was a little frustrated that I could not get the free wifi connection to work on my laptop or smartphone, but someone was happy to help me turn on the computer in the lobby (I suspect it not being on was at the heart of the wifi issue).

The proprietor charged me 50% of one additional night when there was a mistake in my reservation, which made my stay less of a great deal (though still pretty exceptional). This was generous, given that by the terms of my reservation he was allowed to charge me 65% of the extra night. Given that there was no way to correct the reservation in advance, the error was small (one night), and the hotel was not full (so they were not turning away other business because of me), the more generous reaction might have been to simply accept the correction when I got there without the additional charge. But it was still reasonably generous and I can't blame him.

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed it! The hotel and rooms are wonderfully decorated. Rooms are comfortable, have wifi, cable tv, nice bathroom and good beds. We got a good deal through booking.com and only paid 34 USD. At reception the room was advertised for 84 USD...

Oscar is the staff member that cleans the rooms, makes breakfast and he is the best! He even made us tea and brought it to our room when we were feeling sick.

Location is a little outside Arequipa, its a 30 minutes walk to the centre of the city and its safe.

Only thing that bothered us was the breakfast. Only rolls with marmelade. With a little more variation it would he perfect!

Azul Colonial Inn was certainly the best stay we had in Peru. Tastefully decorated, with a quite relaxing wee courtyard, this place made out stay in Arequipa really special. It is in a wonderful area of Arequipa, quieter than the the busy city centre but only 10mn walk from it, and the walk is absolutely lovely! We had some good night sleeps there, in a very clean environment which was really nice after some time travelling. Everything in our stay was great. Oscar was absolutely lovely and genuinely helpful at any time of the day while Dragan's help and fluent English was also very useful for tips etc. Although it is a little pricey, we had a wonderful time and actually went back after our trek, because it was so nice and comfortable. We recommend.

I have been to Arequipa many times, and stayed in many hotels. By far this one is the best, not only for the location but for the service and confortable rooms. Definetely will stay here everytime i go to Arequipa. Ratio price/quiality, totally worthy.
