We try to promote a relaxed friendly attitude, good for studying, full use of all amenities, some shared meals, respectful of other guests. We like to have fun but its not a party house. Please remember that smoking is only permitted outside on the terrace and not in the rooms. Thanks, Gaby and Gawain
My two nights stay at Gawain was great, Gawain gave all the information necessary before my arrival. I would like to thank again Roberto again for waiting for me until 2.00am as my coah was late. Roberto is extremely friendlyand helpful and he makes you feeling welcome whatever time of the day.
The accommodation is well situated with the town centre, great facilities (Kitchen, bathroom); the shower is brilliant; so if you are looking somewhere with a good shower, it is here, it is in a quiet area. Be comfortable and room very spacious. Great view on the roof.
Our host Robert made us feel welcome right away. He showed us where to put our things in the kitchen and a basket for our supplies in the common bathroom. The facilities were exactly as described with a great spot on the roof top to relax. It was wonderful to have access to a washing machine. The location was perfect to take in the major sights which were within walking distance
I had a wonderful stay here whilst in Arequipa. Robert was an absolutely fantastic host, always happy to help and offering advice. The apartment was lovely, clean and perfectly located to explore Arequipa. The balcony was a great place to relax. I also enjoyed being able to use a well equipped kitchen and use of the washing machine.
I would highly recommend this listing to anyone!
Great location. Clean accommodations. Robert, Gaby's brother, was there when we were there and he was wonderful. Very helpful. They rent multiple rooms. The only downside was the bed was pretty hard. You share one bathroom but it wasn't a problem for us. We would stay again.
This is a small house/apartment taking up the top floor of a row of terracestyle houses. There are 4 rooms, one of which the great host Robert lives in (brother in law of gawain) who is really helpful & keeps the place in tip top shape. The place is really run more like a budget style guesthouse. The kitchen is good, the rooms fairly basic but clean and the bathroom is good but sometimes having only 1 bathroom means no access due to it being occupied. Beware that across the narrow street is a dog that barks loudly & a lot even after asking owners to stop it - ear plugs recommended!
The best thing about this apartment is the location - it is super central with just a few minute walk to almost anything in Arequipa's city center. The rooftop terrace is very cute and well maintained. The bedroom was nice and spacious. We had not realized though that each room was outside - so you had to walk outside to get to the bathroom, kitchen, etc. We were there during the rainy season so it got very cold at night and in the morning. We also didn't realize we would be sharing the apartment with so many other people - 8(ish) people sharing one bathroom and one kitchen gets a little crowded!
Other than that it was a really good deal. The apartment is modern by Peruvian standards, and the price and location can't be beat.
