Nice and relaxing place, little out of the way from the city. there is a shuttle that takes you to the city square twice in the morning and returns back at 5 pm. Nice breakfast in the morning, but sometimes not ready when it opens the door. Friendly and helpful staff, most of them speak English.

Map of location is off by 45 minutes drive, street repairs require exerting from service entrance, crossing a soccer field, to find that there is no heat or AC in the hotel. Restaurant and bar during evening hours are as cold as a walk-in cooler. Food was less than average in quality. Requested an iron to spiff up my shirts,... More

We were only supposed to stay at El Lago Estelar one night, but extended our stay because we liked the hotel so much. The grounds are spacious and home to various pets (ducks, llamas, horses), as well as a pool, soccer field, and small pond with kayaks and paddleboats for guests. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable, with WiFi,... More

I was in a short vacation with my family and we had good days. The breakfast is good as well as the food for lunch and dinner - I recommend "El doble"- Clean pool, games for kids and space to play soccer, volleyball and to run or just read un the yard. The hotel is in the middle of the... More

I took my family for a quick get away and this is a great place in Arequipa's countryside, away from the noise and city crazyness. However it is a little too far from downtown Arequipa where most of the attractions are located. If you just want a place to rest, this is a great hotel, very quiet. However if you... More

This hotel is located in the middle of the country in Arequipa and is equipped with swimming pool and a large natural park of lawn. The room is large and conformable, but very very cold without any possibility of heating. The restaurant is also very cold as for the diner where a fire was in the hearth but any strong... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel felt really relaxed. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The hotel has its own restaurant and the food was very tasty. I was pleased to see that they also had a selection of vegetarian meals. The pool area was clean and tidy and... More

Spacious room. However, sound proofing could be better. The hotel has good view of the mistri volcano and chachani volcano. Hotel lobby provide 24 hr free coffee and tea. One must take the coca tea to prevent height sickness as the hotel is located more than 2000 meter above sea level.

This hotel is located in the outskirts or Arequipa, 20 minutes from the center of town. The hotel is in serious need of remodeling. The carpets are worn and dirty, the towels are old and frazzled. I would recommend one of the newer hotels closer to town that are in much better condition.
