We spent two weeks traveling around Peru, at times finding accommodations to be less than desirable/ a bit uncomfortable. We found La Gruta in our Lonely Planet and I can only say that it vastly exceeded our expectations. It was a great price and offered fantastic facilities. The staff was helpful and friendly. Upon returning to the U.S., we realized that we left our camera charger behind in the room. Upon emailing the hotel, the owner offered to ship it to us at no cost!
Quite simply, if you are staying in Arequipa, this is where you should stay! It is only a short walk (through a park) from the main shopping/dining district on San Fransisco avenue and a few blocks from the main plaza. Great place. I highly recommend.

- This hotel with beautiful gardens is located in an elegant residential area, yet only a few minutes away from the colonial city and commercial area. La Gruta has a helpful and friendly atmosphere, with large clean and very comfortable carpeted rooms. Highly recommended by the Lonely Planet - Peru, in its fourth edition of March 2000 (p.199), among the top-end places to stay. ... more less
