La Posada Nueva España
Originally a farm house built in 1810, it later served as a hub for trade in alpaca, vicuña and llama fibers before being restored, refurbished and transformed into a 13-room hotel, the La Posada Nueva España.
The owners, a French-Peruvian family, were careful to preserve its authentic colonial and republican architectural elements while furnishing it with the comforts necessary to make it feel like home.
Guest rooms are basic but charming, with wooden floors and some with sillar stone walls and barrel vault ceilings. Each one has a private bathroom supplied with solar-heated water.
Common areas include two sunny courtyards adorned with plants where guests can have breakfast or spend a lazy afternoon soaking up rays.
Available services include pick-up from the airport, train or bus station, laundry service, Internet access, luggage storage, tourist information, tours and Spanish language courses.
La Posada Nueva España is located in the peaceful historic district of Antioquilla just ten minutes' walking distance from Arequipa's main square. The walk is charming in itself, as you cross the old Bolognesi Bridge with spectacular views of the volcanoes surrounding the city.
Food & Beverage
Upon arrival, guests are served a cup of coca leaf tea and in the mornings they may help themselves to a continental breakfast consisting of fresh orange and papaya juices, coffee or tea, bread, butter and marmalade. The bar and restaurant, where special folkloric musical presentations and tapa tastings are often held, occupies a beautifully decorated sillar stone room with an open-air terrace.
How To Get There
To get to the hotel from Arequipa's Plaza de Armas head west on Bolognesi Street. Cross the Bolognesi Bridge over the Chili River and bear right onto Beaterio Street. Continue along Beaterio for just over a block until you see the hotel on your right, at the intersection with Antioquilla Street.
