“good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This hotel is well located, the service is good and the rooms are confortable. Its not really a 4 stars, much more like a 3 stars but the rates are good. So its a good option in Arequipa. I stayed there twice and I recommand it.

This hotel was in the heart of Arequipa. It was walking distance to the center of town. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was free wifi and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel also provided parking.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had two large beds in our room with nice crisp bed linen and duvets that were very comfortable. Plenty of hot water in the shower. Very clean. Close to the shopping area and centre. Easy to get around town. The breakfasts were good with a fair selection of fresh fruit and juices, eggs, bread, cereals, etc. Wi-fi was good and so was the restaurant where we had a couple of meals. We stayed 3 nights after 48hrs traveling by bus from Guayaquil. It was nice to have a bit of luxury after traveling for so long. They even provided you with toiletries and there was a hairdryer - the second one I've seen in 4 months of traveling so far. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We had an enjoyable stay.

Just be careful when getting into the bath for a shower as it was quite slippery!

I stayed only 1 night and able to check in even at 9am in the morning and they gave me the 4th floor where there is balcony and able to take photo from the balcony. Centrally located within walking distance to touristic places.They even got safe too.

We stayed in Arequipa for two nights and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Casona Plaza. Great location (5 mins walk from the Plaza de Armas), great room (clean and warm) and really good service from front desk staff who provided good advice on local attractions and helped us with online checking. This is good value for money and we hIghly recommend this hotel.

Good breakfast! They let us store our bags for free. Courteous and helpful staff, they really want to help their customers!! Very clean hotel, and the beds are some of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. The location is great, right by the main streets and only a few blocks from Plaza De Armas!!

Like
- Clean, modern hotel.
- Good location close to main shopping street and tourist sites.
- Allowed us to store luggage for 2 days while at Colca Canyon.
- Wifi good, faster in lobby.
Dislike:
- Next door to several parking stations. We stayed 4 nights on 5th floor overlooking 2 stations and the noise from frequent loud car alarms became very annoying. Take earplugs.
- No air con or fan in room meant it got quite stuffy - too noisy to leave windows open at night. We stayed in rooms 503 and 505 and neither had ventilation.
- Breakfast was terrible - not 4 star quality at all. Often only scraps left when we got there at 8am.
- We requested an early breakfast one morning (5.45am) as we had to leave at 6am for our Colca Canyon tour - nothing was organised and by 6am there was still nothing available, even though breakfast is supposed to be from 6am. We left hungry.

I would recommend this hotel if they added some room ventilation and sorted out the breakfast issue.
