Very nice, small charming place to stay. This hotel is about a mile from downtown Arequipa, but don't let this deter you from staying here. Quite the contrary. Rather than be choked by the taxi smog or kept awake by the inner city bustle; this quaint retreat is tucked away in a safe, residential neighborhood just off a beautiful park...

We recently stayed at La Gruta in Arequipa (Peru). It is a small and very friendly hotel in a very quiet, upscale area. The owner, George Orams, is a warm and congenial host who took great interest in our visit to Arequipa. He and the staff were most solicitous and took great care of us.

This hotel with beautiful gardens is located in an elegant residential area, yet only a few minutes away from the colonial city and commercial area. La Gruta has a helpful and friendly atmosphere, with large clean and very comfortable carpeted rooms. Highly recommended by the Lonely Planet - Peru, in its fourth edition of March 2000 (p.199), among the top-end places to stay. ... more   less

“Peruvians are short people. Therefore their beds are a little on the shorter side. My husband and I shared a double bed, but because we are so tall (and the bed so short) it was a little tight. No problem though - it was snuggly. There is no AC or heat, but it wasn't that big of a deal. I think that is typical for Peru anyway.”
