Lovely hidden gem

Pros: The outstanding part of this hotel is the staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed and to arrange things for us.
Cons: Pay attention to the check in time. If you come before 2pm you may not be able to get in.
Location: We used this as a launch point for our SAS Travel trip to Colca Canyon and did not spend much time in the city itself.
Posada el Castillo is hidden behind a plain wall and gate. Once in, you have a lovely landscaped lawn and gorgeous colonial Spanish residence. We stayed in the main building, and our room was very spacious with windows and a balcony. The bathroom was very modern and had loads of hot water (very unusual in Peru). The mattress was a bit firm, but that seemed to be the norm at all of our hotels in Peru. The hotel was fairly quiet and the thick walls blocked the majority of the traffic sounds.
