A stunning orchid-colored house on a tree-lined street is the home of Casa Arequipa, one of the cityâ€™s few gay-friendly hotels. This boutique B&B has only 10 rooms, each with its own theme, like Library, Andina and Colonial, decorated in impeccable taste and with its own price. Beds are dressed with fine pima cotton linens, alpaca blankets and goose-down comforters. All have private baths, some with tubs. Amenities include cable TV, minibar, WiFi and heating. Breakfast is served in the rooftop dining rooms, which have spectacular views of Misti and Chachani volcanoes.
