From $9

Welcome to Colonial House Inn, a colonial house declared a historical monument by the government, with the traditional domed ceilings, located in the centre of the city. The rooms are big, with private bathroom and 24 hour hot water, each with its own special atmosphere.

Guests can enjoy our roof garden where they can have breakfast or just rest while admiring a beautiful view of the city and surrounding mountains. Other facilities include a dining room and TV area with cable TV, a free book exchange and a DVD library. There is also a back patio with a lovely garden and for a very small charge guests can use kitchen and laundry facilities.

The English-speaking staff will give you a warm welcome and provide information about tours and connections. We also sell bus tickets and tours.

We have a long and varied breakfast menu which includes muesli, fruit salad, omelettes, pancakes, eggs, and sandwiches; the prices are the most convenient in town.

We are just a five to ten minute walk from banks, ATMs, and money exchange stores.

Why not visit and stay with us? We look forward to welcoming you here!

This was indeed quite a nice cosy hostel. The service was really good and it was cheap to stay as well. Breakfast was included and freshly made, served up in the rooftop terrace (amazing place to start your day), with a lovely view of the volcanoes.

It's located a few blocks from the main plaza, but still within walking distance, in a lovely area. Don't expect a modern hostel, the walls were peeling in our bathroom, but that is probably due to bad ventilation and the age of the building. Nonetheless, highly recommended.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I seem to have a thing for rooftop terraces, as I haven't yet disliked a place with a rooftop terrace. The Colonial House Inn (the regular one, not number "II") was no exception, as I spent many lazy hours up there, gazing at the towering shapes of Chachani and El Misti at the horizon, and enjoying the wonderful breakfasts or pitchers of fresh orange juice which the always helpful and friendly staff kept tirelessly bringing me. The resident kitty and visiting hummingbirds provide alternative entertainment.
The big downside of this place is that getting hot water is a bit of a gamble (you have the best chance during daylight hours), and street noise (especially from the barking dogs across the road) can get annoying at times (but then, I have yet to find _any_ accommodation in Peru which does not suffer from street noise). On the plus side, the rooms remain wonderfully cool even on the hottest days, and it's hard to beat the price. Plus, did I mention the wonderful rooftop terrace yet? :)
