Posada El Castillo
The Posada El Castillo is run by its Dutch owner and located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood of Arequipa. The castle-like structure in which the inn is housed gave the property its name. Laundry service, a spacious lounge area and a restaurant with bar are among the amenities offered on site.
Guest rooms and suites are all fully carpeted and a light but cozy atmosphere is created by the combination of soft colors, warm wooden furniture, and plenty of natural daylight. Each unit is equipped with cable TV, wireless Internet access and a luxurious private bathroom.
Thanks to its turquoise-colored water and the palm trees next to it, the on-site swimming pool resembles a natural lagoon. A classically styled wooden sun deck, loungers and BBQ facilities are available for guest use.
The Posada El Castillo is located in a safe residential neighborhood far enough from the center of Arequipa to enjoy some peace and quiet. The main square can be reached on foot in 15 minutes or much quicker via taxi.
Food & Beverage
A generous breakfast is served in the breakfast room each morning and consists of their signature strawberry juice, breads, meat, cheese, eggs, coca leaf tea and coffee. The on-site restaurant serves local and international dishes, wine and cocktails.
