“Nice hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

During our October Peruvian trip we spent one night in this historic property prior to traveling up to the Colca Valley.

The courtyards and public areas of this hotel are beautiful and a great place to have breakfast or an evening cocktail.

The rooms are rather ordinary. Nothing exceptional but good for a nights sleep.

Breakfast was ample and tasty.

Service is warm, friendly and efficient. You can't go wrong at this hotel especially if you enjoy colonial architecture. Great for a leisure traveler.

Arequipa was the first stop of our Peru vacation and staying here got us off on the right foot. The hotel takes up a historical building, with an unassuming entrance (relative to many eye-catching buildings in close proximity) that opens to a welcoming courtyard. This gave the impression of a secret getaway, near the busy Plaza de Armas but far enough for privacy.

We opted for a suite to experience the building's historical architecture and were amazed by the massive cathedral ceilings and beautiful wood frame windows. The bathroom was pleasantly modern, though.

Only disappointment was the hotel staff forgot to arrange a taxi to collect us from the airport, despite two reminders from me ahead of time.

Very beautiful hotel in Arequipa city center, close to main attractions. Rooms are very confortable and the service was very good and helpful. This place is very charming, It's like a hotel inside a museum :) the breakfast is also very good. Possible to book a 2 days tour to visit the colca canyon.

Just around the corner of the Monastry, the place to be. Excellent service, perfect breakfast en fine rooms. The lobby invites you to sit and relax. The service of the staff is acurate. The design of the hotel brings the old days with the the new styles together

Spent one night here on two occasions and both were outstanding. The service and the rooms were both excellent. We especially received outstanding service on both of our visits from Juan Carlos an outstanding individual who couldn't do enough to make you comfortable.

I think without doubt the nicest hotel I have stayed at. Intimate, comfortable and most opposite to the mundane Hi Rise Hiltons. The restoration work done here is outstanding with seemingly no expense spared. The rooms are clean, quiet. The staff are friendly and welcoming. For me, being sent away on short notice for work just on Xmas was not great, my wife was 8 months pregnant 1000s of miles away. But staying here was relaxing and so pleasant, it eased the tension of not exactly wanting to be away from home.

Every weekday breakfast in a semi outdoor courtyard ( and Chapel) with a Harp player setting a peaceful state of mind prior to my workday.

If I had to complain.. I can't. My only comment is that the cost of room service food and the restaurant are way up. I was ill one day and stayed in my room. Ordered basic bowl of potato soup.. 28 Soles. Now that was crazy. So I do suggest to walk for 5 minutes to find heaps of excellent reastaurants nearby and for 28 Soles you'll get a full on meal anywhere. At Casa Andina expect to pay 30% more than nearby restaurants. I ate here twice and it was OK. Service of course was outstanding.

Thanks to Willy and special thanks to Juan-Carlos who should teach customer service to the entire hospitatily industry.

Stay here!

Room Tip: Rooms 108 - 112 can be a little noisy betwen 6-9pm. I think there is a maintenance room underneath...

Casa Andina hotels may be part of a hotel chain but each property is different and this one is no exception. Enter through huge timber doors from the street into a wonderful lobby space that has been beautifully restored. Lots of brickwork, cane furniture and plants give it a unique look.

Breakfast is served each morning in the courtyard off the lobby. The selection is not huge but covers all bases. You will find eggs made to order, real fruit juice, endless coffee, toast, jams, yoghurt, cereals and fresh fruit. We particularly enjoyed the hot vegetable dishes, taking our chance at breakfast in a country with meat and carb laden meals.

There are computers in a separate alcove off the lobby for those who are not travelling with iPads. The in house restaurant had some interesting menu options but we chose to eat out; it seemed very quiet with the odd senior tourist couple eating early.

Our room, 305, was in the new part of the hotel and had windows overlooking an internal light well. We were able to open the windows at night for some fresh air. It was nicely furnished and very comfortable with a good selection of toiletries in the bathroom. Whilst the bed had good linen we found the pillows very high and hard for our liking.

Apart from the safe, dressing gowns and slippers, we loved having a jug with tea, coffee and crema supplies for making hot drinks. Much more convenient than calling room service, going to a café or having coca tea in the entry foyer.

The hotel is within walking distance to all of the main attractions in Arequipa, the closer of these being the Catalina Monastery. The main eat streets and Plaza de Armas are approx. 15 mins walk.

A transfer from the airport with the hotel is 37 soles. Whilst this was convenient we would probably use one of the taxis at the airport on a future visit. There is a tourist bureau at the airport and plenty of good registered taxis.

We would stay again but not when a mining conference is on as we paid a premium for our room.
