Myself and 2 friends stayed at Casa De Avila for 8 nights in November. We stayed in one of the family rooms which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Plaza which was perfect for us since we found the Plaza quite busy and noisy so it was peaceful at the hotel. The garden is amazing, a great place to relax after breakfast before leaving to visit the City. Every morning we would go down to the garden to look for their pet turtle named Paka. The best part of our stay was the staff, so helpful and they would always greet us with a smile. They provided us with excellent information for tours to the Colca Canyon, City tours and El Misti. The breakfast was good but basic, bread with jams, cereal, cheese, delicious juice, coffee and tea. But you can order a la carte for a few soles (we loved the fried potatoes)! While my friends we're hiking in Colca Canyon, I enrolled in some spanish classes that I truly enjoyed. Our only regret is missing the cooking classes, I guess we'll have to go back!
We highly recommend this hotel in Arequipa! A huge thank you to the staff, particularly to Natalia, Raquel, Lucia and Milagros!
