Overall we had a great stay here in May 2014. Our spacious room was on the ground floor off an inner courtyard and had an amazing vaulted ceiling and exposed original stonework. The whole building was so interesting and felt like going back to the age of the Spanish! However the room was quite noisy, and dinner/breakfast was served in the restaurant right across the courtyard, including outside, where a harpist struck up at 6.30 am. Felt like he was in the room with us as the old original doors are obviously not sound-proof! Staff were very pleasant and things generally were very good. The breakfast selections were very good and service prompt.
Just an irritant - in a place where tap water was not drinkable, we would have expected complementary water in our room, but the hotel imposed a very high charge for this, which seems excessive for a hotel chain trying to appeal to the luxury market. Much larger bottles are available just a few yards away down the street for a tenth of the cost!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Andina Private Collection Arequipa is raised on the old "Casa de la Moneda" (old Mint), a national historic landmark built in 1794, what makes our hotel more a living museum than a hotel. Its strategic location only a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas in Arequipa makes it the ideal choice for business and leisure travelers. It features 41 rooms - 100 % non-smokers, among an Imperial Suite and two Senior Suites. ... more less
