Great place to stay in Chivay, I really liked this hotel, The staff is super friendly and the rooms were warm - including a heater you could use if you wanted and lots of blankets. Hotel is walking distance from the markets and from some areas where you can go on short hikes/walks(which is really all there is to do in the town itself). Has a nice living room and dining room including pool and comfy couches to hang out on. Breakfast was good and warm and plentiful. Highly recommended this hotel in Chivay Arequipa.

Manager closed the Internet after 1 hour after check in. He said the entire town had no internet but when I went to town there was Internet. In the morning there was no breakfast or Internet. I didn't like that he lied about the Internet and he was a bit of a jerk.

The hotel was kind enough to let us in at 3:45 AM without a reservation. The room was extremely quiet (away from the street), clean, with a comfortable bed and warm blankets. The breakfast was the usual fare for hotels in the region and tasty.

If you are staying here as part of a tour group, or for one night only, it's probably fine. The rooms are clean, comfortable and warm. There are plenty of blankets on the bed, and a little heater is provided. There is a TV - but hardly any English channels. WiFi is available in the reception, and works well there. Breakfast is inconsistent, but OK. Eggs are always given, sometimes yogurt, sometimes cheese. It's possible to have breakfast a little early - officially it's from 06.00 - 09.00. Tour groups seemed to have no problem eating before 06.00. The staff are friendly and do their best. The main problem with the Posada del Colca is that it's impossible to sleep after 04.30. This is OK if you're getting up early to go to the Cruz del Condor. We had a room facing on to what is supposedly a pedestrian street, but cars, pick-up trucks and vans would line up outside the front door waiting to collect guests. The noise was awful - radios blaring, voices, doors slamming, and engines revving. On the first morning - when we got up at 05.00, the shower was hot. The following two mornings it was not. The second day it was tepid, the third, cold. To be fair, the staff did boil water for us and carry it up to our room, but the hotel simply does not have the capacity to serve the number of mainly large groups that it caters for. One day of our stay the room was not serviced. When I asked why I was told they thought we were checking out - even though it was way past check out time, and we'd paid for our whole stay on arrival, and told reception staff twice, that we were staying for three nights. The manager apologised profusely when I mentioned all these problems, but did not offer any recompense - just said that he hoped we would stay again if we were in the area. Sadly, I can only say that the Posada del Colca is not good value for money (PEN 129 per night for a double) and I could not recommend it to anyone.

The hotel looks dilapidated from the front and the common areas downstairs appear very cold and institutional, but the rooms are very nice. The rooms are large, have clean and ample bathrooms, the big beds are well equipped with blankets, and the room has a heater. Breakfast is inconsistent, but always includes eggs, but it is only served from 5:45 to 7:00 am. They knock on your door to wake you up at 6:45 if you have not had breakfast yet. Late sleepers beware! In fact, the main daytime reception guy was very annoying to me, insisting that I help his friend learn English and even trying to pressure me into postponing my sightseeing so I could converse with her. Creepy. Otherwise a good budget option.
