Reviewed July 2, 2014

After a long plane trip from Europe a couple of days here was just what the doctor ordered. The staff were really fantastic, the rooms just great and the breakfasts could not be faulted. So conveniently located to numerous restaurants and the main square and a really safe environment. Would heartily recommend this hotel to anybody of whatever age or likes or dislikes.

Full marks !!

Room Tip: Would go for the upper floors as ground floor rooms looked a little dark

We spent three nights at the Casa Andina Private Collection hotel in Arequipa in May 2014 as part of a three week tour of Peru. The hotel is located in a quiet spot within a few minutes walk of the historic town centre and most of the key sites. Our room was well- equipped and comfortable, albeit rather narrow. The shower flow, though, was poor. Disappointingly, the breakfast room was so cold that staff and most guests needed to wear outdoor jackets. As a result, we did not eat dinner at the hotel and, instead used local restaurants. Our favourite was Zig Zag on Zela. The hotel staff, though, were very helpful, efficient and friendly. Would recommend for location but management need to improve the breakfast experience.

We spent 3 nights at this beautiful place, a former residence and mint. The location is perfect to see the main sites of the city. The lobby and public areas are sunlit and really nice. Check-in was very quick. In fact, each member of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful--I do not know how they remember each guest's name, but they do! A special thank-you to Willy and Michelle, who are wonderful ambassadors to Arequipa! Our room was in the newer section. It was very pretty, as well as spacious and quiet; the mattress was not too firm. There is a safety-box. Wi-fi worked very well. We did not change the A/C, so do not know how responsive it is. The bathroom was spotless, with a nice shower, and had all of the amenities: Wash clothes, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, robes and slippers. Bottles of water were replaced each day. Breakfast is a nice spread: typical assortment, with an egg station and a harpist. We ate our first meal in Arequipa at Alma, the on-site restaurant; it was one of the better meals we had in Arequipa! Martin, in the bar, gave my husband his first well-made extra dry martini he has had outside of the US. While there, we ate at Zig-Zag and Chi Cha; Zig-Zag slightly better than Chi Cha, however I do not highly recommend either one. Don't miss the Monasterio D Santa Catalina and the main square, which has great people-watching and a grocery store nearby. And, if you have time, go see the mummy of the Ice Maiden, Juanita, at Museo Santuarios Andinos. Really wonderful!

Remarkable hotel lobby and public areas. The room had comfy beds, we were in the newer section and did not have view but it was very nice Terraces in different areas to enjoy the outdoors. Really a lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Older colonial rooms may have more charm but probably more expensive.

Hotel is in old building with courtyards.
We stayed in the old building in a huge room with well equipped bathroom and big sitting room. Breakfast was good in the morning sun at the courtyard. Our pick-up at airport as ordered was ok.
Extra bed for our daughter was places without extra charge.
Very good located in city centre, very close to the old monastery, many good restaurants nearby.
Price/quality ratio is very good!

Only thing I didn't like, the windows couldn't be opened for fresh air.

This is a stunning hotel, very centrally located in Arequipa. The entrance to the hotel is a roofed over courtyard and is used for sitting eating or drinking. There is an adjacent sunlight external courtyard in which we breakfast. The bedrooms are well appointed, clean and easily accessible. They have been well integrated into the historical fabric of the old building formerly a Mint and residence.
The food is lovely and well presented.
The staff are, without exception, friendly, bright and cheerful and all are willing and able to help you with any matter. Patricia the receptionist couldn't do too much for us and was always there smiling at us and ensuring all was well. She would be an asset to any organisation. Patricia also introduced us to the Pisco Sour....for which I shall always be grateful.

Room Tip: do not miss this place

This hotel is very close to the main plaza, about 5 minutes walk.

The hotel is a mix of old and modern, it is absolutely beautiful, especially the restaurant. We stayed in a room on the 3rd floor, the room is nice and clean, very modern with no trace of traditional character which I would like to see more.

The hotel isn't big but was nice to walk around. The breakfast of this hotel was amazing and the service is first class, especially Carlos who served us, a big thanks to you.

I would recommand this hotel for visitors to Arequipa for it's good location, nice rooms and great service.
