“Nice hotel - with Oxygen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Didn't really get to appreciate the hotel as was ill with Altitude Sickness
They were very good at getting me on Oxygen - you get 5 min on pure oxygen and if you get worse they will call a doctor - Oxygen was free
Nice Clean
Good Central Location

Room Tip: Ask forOxygen - before you get soo bad you can't move!

What a relief after visiting Puno.
A very quiet place, cosy bungalows equipped with everything a tired traveller needs. Close to the center of Chivay.
Nice breakfast. All the personal very helpful and smiling.
A highly recommended place.

This hotel ( or hostel?) was situated up a dirt track within the town of Chivay and, due to its situation, did not encourage any strolling of the area prior or after dinner.
It was clean with a limited menu and a take it or leave it attitude. The rooms were of good size but cold although a hot water bottle was provided on our return from the evening meal!
I reported a fault with the toilet after arrival and it was fixed within the hour.. The lobby had a constant and free supply of excellent coco tea. All the rooms were chalet style and it appeared to be a classy backpackers haunt .

Room Tip: Most residents stay only one or two nights in transit and standards reflect this.

Colca Canyon can be quite cold in winter but the hotel provided heater and warm bottle in bed. The hotel is a nice dig, and we'd come back again for sure. We did not try the food at the hotel, but based on reviews from other guest, the food was excellent. The hotel is pretty quiet despite the resort style, and the service was excellent!

We stayed one night at the Casa Andina in Chivay. The Inn was ‘rustic’ but this is to be expected in a place with very few hotels. It was in a very quiet location, comfortable, spacious and meticulously clean. What impressed us most though, was the service. Hot water bottles were provided to warm up the beds even though rooms had heaters and were comfortable. We mentioned that three of our group were suffering from altitude sickness and within minutes someone arrived to provide each with 5 minutes of oxygen free of charge. What a difference that made to our whole trip! Highly recommended.

We only spent one night here before a trip up to Colca Canyon and condor viewing. This place has lots of character! Stone cottages with all the comforts you'll need. After a casual dinner in the restaurant (yum) we returned to our room for the night. A nice surprise awaited as we turned down the sheets - a hot water bottle was warming up the bed! What a nice touch on a chilly night!
Room temperature was managed easily on the wall heater.

This is my second hotel from this category ( casa andina) and I was very impressed of the infrastructure. There are little 'houses' in a garden and the rooms in it where very spacious and clean. It was an agreable stay and a good place to go for the visit of the Colca Canon. I also strongly recommand this hotel.
