Arequipa, Arequipa

The Katari Plaza de Armas hotel, as its name suggests, is located in the center of Arequipa’s main square. It’s close to all the main sites around the historical sites, restaurants, and shopping artisan malls. The property is about 15 minutes walking from Parque Lambramani and closes to UNSA Monumental Stadium in Arequipa.

Insider’s recommendations

  • The rooftop restaurant is an excellent place to enjoy a drink while watching the city lights and mountains’ sunset.
  • We recommend booking a room with external views.
  • The filtered water faucet in the bathroom is a nice touch.
  • The happy hour is an excellent deal (and very well dosed in alcohol). If you fancy, give it a try and spend a lovely evening with a local band playing in the background.
