This was such a disappointment. The facility is charming, with rooms in a lovely old converted stone house with courtyard. We had a quaint, two-story room with high ceilings, etc. etc. Problem was there was no window in the room; nor in the bathroom. And no fan. Outside, the weather was almost chilly. Inside, the stone walls kept in the... More

This is the perfect hotel near Plazas de Armas in Areqipa. Wonderful staff, beautiful tranquil courtyard, lovely breakfast. Reserve a room in the inner courtyard. Reserve ZigZag restaurant for supper during your stay- fantastic trio of meats on a hot stone, including alpaca! A perfect place to stay to enjoy Areqipa and a lovely staff at the hotel.

Nice hotel and really friendly hotel staff. The senorita arranged for us the cooking class and arranged a 2 day trek to the colca canyon. We could leave our luggage at the hotel and on the day we come back we stayed a extra night before we leave to puno the next morning. The bus was also arranged for us... More

Hard to find a better place in Arequipa! Full of character in a faboulous location close to the central plaza. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed in period style. The service was excellent; nothing was too much trouble. We could have easily stayed much longer. Definitely recommend this place.

We booked here twice. The first attempt was disastrous. Arrived on an early flight from Cusco to find no transport and then that our room, booked months before and recently confirmed by them direct, had been given away. Weak excuses about too many Bookingdotcom requests. However they had booked a room in the Casona Terrace around the corner. On our... More

I'll get right to the point -- We loved this hotel and highly recommend it. It may be the perfect combination of price, location, service and atmosphere. The hotel is a restored colonial gentleman’s house that was built in 1702. We only made our reservation a day ahead of time. We were in La Paz, Bolivia, and I knew we... More

We stayed two nights in this beautiful small single-story hotel which was mansion of a former President of Peru. It is comprised of two courtyards on which all all the rooms exit. The second courtyard contains a colorful garden. Simply beautiful in the morning sun. The mansion was built in the early 1700s and constructed of heavy sillar blocks .... More

Casona Solar is a wonderful small hotel just minutes from the central plaza in Arequipa. We walked everywhere and found truly wonderful restaurants and shops within a few blocks of the hotel and were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms and the luxurious bedding and the lovely courtyards where it is very easy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A colonial hotel with 300 years of history.Hotel Casona Solar is a beautiful restored colonial gentleman’s house build in 1702 in the centre of the colonial city of Arequipa. Hotel Casona Solar has the atmosphere that Arequipa had in the 18th century. The thick walls are made out of the white volcanic stone Sillar and all rooms have the so typical high arched roofs and big doors that enter one of the two central courtyards. All rooms have modern bathrooms with toilet. In our bar we serve every morning between 6 AM and 10 AM a breakfast buffet.In our big garden you can enjoy the blue sky and the 320 days of sunshine that Arequipa offers year in year out. The average day temperature is 25 degrees Celsius and rain is rare. After a long day exploring Arequipa and the surroundings you can enjoy the cool mountain evenings at our fireplace while having a snack and a drink.On just a 2 minutes walking distance you will find the ‘Plaza de Armas’ one of the most beautiful main squares of Peru. Also the neoclassical cathedral, the monastery of Santa Catalina, the mummy Juanita and the typical colonial buildings in classical Spanish style are one step away. You can always see from every point in the city the perfect conic 5822 meter high volcano El Misti.In 1980 hotel Casona Solar recieved the title national momument by UNESCO and INC. ... more   less
