Hotel Description

Located in a fully restored 18th-century colonial mansion, the Villa Melgar Hostal offers clean guest rooms distributed throughout its three top floors. Each cozy space has a comfortable bed, private or shared bathroom with 24-hour hot water and towels, and complimentary access to high-speed wireless Internet.

Guests can store their luggage or rent a safety-deposit box at the front desk. The guest house's friendly staff is bilingual, and can arrange for massages and Spanish lessons, facilitate currency exchange, and book transportation arrangements to destinations within Peru.


Villa Melgar is surrounded by expert examples of Peru's colonial architecture, dozens of restaurants, and is also within walking distance of the busy city center. Points of interest such as the Neptuno Monument, the Santa Teresa Convent, and the Santa Rosa Monastery can all be found in the blocks adjacent to here.

For meals, guests can purchase fresh pizza baked in a wood-burning oven at Los Leños, or enjoy fine European dining at the trendy Zig Zag. With several picturesque parks, colonial architecture and museums, the area is ideal for strolling around.

Several tour agencies lead adventure hikes and mountain biking tours that leave from this zone. Just blocks from the guest house are the Melgar and La Salle bus stations, making public transit a convenient option when visiting other areas of the city.
