“Nice setting - pity about the noise and the beds!”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

Nice location on a river bank adjoining a bridge into the colonial city centre, pleasant grounds and nicely designed buildings. Nice welcome.

The rooms are quite small, and beds very hard and small. No air conditioning, but traffic noise from the bridge was too loud to have the windows open. Heating inadequate in the bedroom, and non-existent in the bathroom - common in Peru.

Breakfast served in pleasant garden (indoor option if desired), but it was waiter service, which was slow.

This was my 3rd business trip to Arequipa and have stayed at La Posada del Puente each time. The facilities and location are nice (well maintained, charming, good restaurant, walking distance to city center), but the best feature of this hotel is the staff. Friendly, helpful, good restaurant recommendations, happy to assist people with little or no Spanish skills. Great customer service. Come once for the facilities, come back for the people.

It is a very nice surprise to see that right under a busy bridge there is this nice hotel. It is an odd location but it is well done. Breakfast was nice and it also includes shuttle to the airport. It is a very good option to visit arequipa as it is only blocks from the historical center. I recommend it. Wi fi is spotty but free.

This place is like an oasis in the city, By the river, llamas in the yard, hacienda-type layout. Very friendly and helpful staff, particularly at the front desk. Every restaurant recommendation they made was a hit. Appreciated the free wi-fi throughout the facility.

This hotel has a lovely position by the river and you can have breakfast or lunch in the garden. Caged canaries are singing all the time and there are llamas in the garden. It's not far from the airport (about 15 mins) and a few blocks away from the town centre. We had a junior suite which was perfect. It's a really friendly hotel. The restaurant was good too. Not at all expensive and a nice change from the big chain hotels.
