Hostal  La posada De Ugarte

Hostal La posada De Ugarte

This budget stay gives you a large, basic room, a hot shower, and some English channels on cable. The location is outstanding - right next to the Santa Catalina Monastery, and a super short stroll to the main square. All the staff were very sweet, but communication seems a bit touch and go if you don't know Spanish. ... more

This is a fairly centrally located hotel. You can walk to the main square, places of interest, and good restaurants in a few minutes. Comfortable and relaxed. Staff are very pleasant to deal with. Breakfast staff in particular were very sweet. A good find for a stay in a lovely city. ... more

It's a nice place to stay with really good service. It's 4 blocks away from main square so don't expect extreme silence. The room was big and so was the bathroom. Clean and with a lot of light. The price is good and the service, I repeat, was really good. ... more

We stayed in Arequipa twice, and wish we found this place sooner. The amenities are great -- everything from an air hockey table to table tennis to video games, to two TV rooms.

This place was weird . . . it looked as if it was an old school or something that was turned into a hostel. It was clean enough, and the bathroom was nice, but it was kind of creepy.
