The Boutique Hotel Casa de Orellana can be found in the heart of Trujillo, within the walled Medieval part next to the Church of Santa María La Mayor de La Asunción. It is surrounded by the mansions and palaces of the conquistadors which are still emblazoned with their coats of arms.

Birthplace of the discoverer of the Amazon River, Francisco de Orellana, the building dates from the 16th century. It boasts its own defensive crenelated tower, below whose battlements the main grand entrance is located. Above the arched doorway can be found the stone coat of arms incorporating the ten roundels of the Orellana family, giving testimony to the historic significance of the medieval city of Trujillo.

The Hotel’s five distinguished suites and rooms are all individually furnished with ensuite bathrooms. All rooms are named after historic figures involved in the Amazon River Expedition.

The Hotel has patio and garden with outdoor swimming pool for exclusive use of guests.

Rating and Reviews

Most beautiful hotel in an old mansion in the medieval part of town

A fantastic hotel with only a few rooms who have all acces to the “tropical” patio with a small swimmingpool and a view of the towering church behind the hotel. Place for a romantic, restfull stay. The rooms are spacious and have excellent modern bathrooms.


River of Darkness


We travelled through the Extremadura on the back of Buddy Levy’s stunning acount of De Orellana’s ‘Voyage of Death and Discovery Down the Amazon’ and Pizarro’s last stand at Jacquijahuana, up in the Andes.
