“Good hotel with great hosts”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Our original plan to stay here for 2 nights turned into 5 such was the comfort of the hotel and the good service. On arrival our standard double room was upgraded to a junior suite and we were given a complimentary free breakfast despite being several hours earlier than normal check in.

The hotel is run by two brothers who both speak excellent English, making communication around our needs regarding day trips etc very easy. They booked a half day city tour and a Colca Canyon tour for us. They regularly ordered pizza on our behalf due to our poor Spanish, and were brilliant sources for DVD entertainment with the several discs that they lent us. They also helped us to order taxis to try to make sure we weren't ripped off. They also helped us to get the correct medication to help address a health issue when we were unwell.

The room was very spacious, very clean and the beds were the most comfortable that we have slept in in South America so far after 2 months of travelling. There is a mini bar in the room, a huge flat screen tv, and a DVD player. Wifi is good and there is a pc in the lobby which we used to upload photos.

Breakfast is good with bread, jam, a choice of eggs, fresh juices, cereal and coffee each day.

The only downside is that it is located a little outside of the main city centre, and as a result we often had to go to several taxi drivers before one would bring us back. Having said that, we always managed to get a cab within 5 minutes and the cost back was £2 at worst (8 Soles). this apathy by the drivers is mainly due to the heavy traffic in the area and frankly for the price and service from the hotel it was worth this small inconvenience.

The hotel itself is quiet and an ideal base for a stay in Arequipa, and is extremely close to 2 very large modern shopping malls. We felt very safe and well looked after our stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had wonderful stay. The family run place is very friendly, the brothers speak really good English and they provided us with a wonderful service, even giving us some snacks for our trip to colca canyon at 2.30 am. The only snag is that the place is s
Ight layout of town but taxis are cheap. We would definitely stay her again

We stayed here for a night in Arequpia. Best hostel we stayed in the entire trip. Very clean and nicely decorated. The brothers that run the hostel are very friendly and made us feel very at home. I was very sad to leave to go to our next location since I liked staying there so much.

I arrived at this property 3 months ago and the stay was impeccable. After being picked up from the airport by the friendly staff that spoke fluent English we arrived at the hotel within 15 minutes. I was greeted with a complimentary welcome drink (pisco sour) by Jose. Jose took care of every detail of my trip, and I highly recommend his service. The rooms were cleanly, big, and comparable to a Hilton (flat screen tv's, free high speed internet, dvd player, fridge). In the morning there was a free American breakfast buffet with bacon, eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, you name it. I travel a lot to Arequipa for work, and this was by far the best stay I've had as a result of the incredible staff, service, quality, and convenience of the location. I recommend Hotel Casa Villa to all.
