Sonesta Posadas Del Inca Arequipa

Los Balcones De Moral Y Santa Catalina

Hostal Solar De Arequipa
This snazzy pick is clean and airy, with contemporary decor. Prices include touches like airport pickup and a buffet breakfast served on the rooftop terrace.
Clean, quiet and reminiscent of a good American chain hotel, this place boasts a restaurant, bar, gym and a terrace.

Las Torres De Ugarte
This is a friendly hostel in a quiet location behind the Monasterio de Santa Catalina. It has immaculate rooms with TVs and colorful wooly bedspreads. You’ll just have to ignore the cacophonous echoing hallways...

Casa De Avila
If the spacious courtyard garden doesn’t swing it for you, the congenial personalized service ought to – this is no ‘yes sir, no sir’ chain hotel...
Hostal Posada Del Parque

Home Sweet Home
This genuinely friendly homestay has won over countless backpackers with its huge breakfasts and cute, if a bit musty, rooms...
La Casa Blanca Your Peru
The second Casa Blanca in Arequipa (note: two words as opposed to one), this one is another reasonably priced ‘find’ with a fantastic coffee bar in the courtyard out front. Rooms are quite basic, but the staff is friendly and eager to please.
