Ideal and well equipped place to stay with a recreational vehicle directly in the middle of the beautiful city, walking distance to the historical/colonial center. Friendly personnel, nice gardens, good and functional infrastructure, international atmosphere. A bit noisy from a main street, but attenuated by high walls.

A well located, unusual hostal. Great service, comfortable, clean and helpful staff. Affordable, warm and close to the centre of Arequipa, would recommend for a short stay. breakfast adequate, but served to you by Herman who seemed to do a bit of everything around the place.

Overall this place was pretty good. Its a shame that its right next to the very busy main road. But the traffic wasn't too bad at night so not the end of the world. It was very close to a big supermarket so that was a bonus. The toilets and showers were very clean and had power-points so if you...

Safe and secure camping site in the Center of Arequipa! Camped here with my motor home for 10 days, nice grassy area, great hot shower, clean toilets and good WiFi. Enough space even for large Rigs. Very friendly and accommodating owners, Ursula and Herman! Would come back any time.

Was recommended to stay here by a relative who had stayed here before and had had a pleasant stay. The boss Ursula was very friendly, well-informed and anxious to make sure we had a good time in Arequipa. Her recommendations regarding the YELLOW double-decker bus sightseeing trip, and the trip to Colca Canyon with Giardino Tours were spot-on! We had...

This is a nice hotel, a little walk from the centre of town. I'd only rate the location as average because the walk in wasn't particularly pleasant. Rooms were spacious, plumbing worked well enough, door locks and safe worked, so it had the basics.Well-presented, particularly from the outside, we would be happy to stay here again.

We loved staying here so much we stayed an extra three days. We took advantage of their parking/camping area with our truck camper. They are in a great location, three blocks from the plaza de armas and two blocks from a huge grocery store. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. They have a pretty quick internet connection too!

I came to Arequipa for some Spanish classes and sightseeing for 4 weeks. I could not have asked for anything more. As the other reviews say, this is an old mansion that has been in the family for years. My room on the second floor has a little balcony looking over the garden where I can see Mt. Misti in...

Hostal Las Mercedes is a lovely little place! Nice gardens, well maintained, quiet rooms, at least the ones on the rear side of the building. It is an old mansion with style, very nice antique furniture. It is located an easy 10-minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas. The center of Arequipa with shops and restaurants is more on the...
