Stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel was fantastic and the staff warm and welcoming. The room was beautiful with sillar stone and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was the best we had in our 2 weeks in Peru and the room had nice little extras such add a tea kettle and a mini... More

Stay here! My husband and I spent a month traveling around Peru, and most of our hotel stays were in the $30-$60 range. We "splurged" on this one (the cost was $90 per night) and we couldn't have been happier. The location is perfect, right near Plaza del Armas, and on a street lined with bakeries, so it smells amazing.... More

Casona Solar is an beautiful hotel which used to be the home of the second president of Peru. The rooms and grounds are amazing and the staff are friendly and very helpful. The location is great, just two blocks from the central square. It is an exceptional value. We are already looking forward to returning.

We stayed here for two beautiful nights. The hotel is near the city center and the local market. The courtyards and rooms of the hotel are very beautiful and clean. Service: We have mixed feeling about them. It depended on who you asked for assistance. Sometimes very helpful other times the opposite. But overall good service. The breakfast was also... More

We arrived early in the morning after a flight from Cusco and immediately allowed into our room. Although we were checking out at silly o'clock for a Colca Canyon trek they offered us a packed lunch for the breakfast we were going to miss. Upon our return they were helpful offering to sort out accommodation/taxis and anything else we would... More

My wife and i stopped here for a couple of days at the end of of a too brief tour round Peru. What a nice hotel - secluded courtyards, with generously sized rooms, close to the main square. Very comfortable, reasonable rates, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpfl staff (thanks Deborah). Near perfect. An oasis in Areqipa.

Excellent ambience and extremely friendly service. Delicious breakfast, clean and nice rooms with good beds and the perfect shower. We appreciated that the safe is in the room. There even was a refrigerator and a kettle in our room. The garden and patio is very inviting to relax and to chat with other travellers. Perfectly located near the center. That's... More

TL;DR: Didn't get what I paid for/do not understand why this is a top pick by Lonely Planet/hot water for showers NOT guaranteed. Room quality: Clean but the hot water was not available in our room during our entire stay. This accommodation commands a much higher price than most places in Arequipa--availability of hot water should not be an issue.... More

A lovely hotel close to the centre. The service was great. Free drinks and free cab to pick up our bags. The receptionist Joshua was especially helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast, clean showers and huge rooms.
