I emailed Casa Andina several times leading up to our trip to ask questions, get recommendations etc and they were very responsive and helpful every time. They have airport transportation available for a reasonable cost. They will meet you when you arrive at the airport and take you to their comfortable sitting area until the van is ready (we only waited about 7 min). The driver was friendly and told us about points of interest on our way to the hotel. Upon arrival to the hotel, we were met by a bellman (named Johnny, who was super helpful and friendly througout our trip) that took our luggage in for us, then we sat in the breezeway while they checked us in. While we waited Johnny offered us coca tea and gave us a map of the area and pointed out the sites we might want to see. We immediately appreciated the attention they gave us. Once checked in we were walked to our room by Johnny and he helped with our luggage. The decor of the hotel is beautiful. I noticed right away the amazing paintings, furniture, pottery and mirrors. I asked about these and found out that they are originals (paintings all original, but some of the frames and furniture are replicas) purchased from an antique auction. I really enjoyed looking at the paintings and appreciated their history. Our standard room was plenty large and had modern, clean decor. The bed was so nice...white crisp linens, fluffy duvet, comfortable mattress and soft baby alpaca throw blanket. The hotel also has several beautiful courtyards where you can sit and relax. We used the concierges desk quite a bit to arrange transportation and asks questions. They were very helpful every time. The hotel location is good as well. Short walk to Plaza de Armas and central to shops and several artisan markets. Free breakfast is good...omlet chef for made to order eggs, breads, fruit, meats, cheeses and juice. We traveled from Cusco to Machu Picchu and the hotel held our luggage for us for 4 days. When we arrived back to the hotel after our travels, we were warmly welcomed back. Our luggage was brought out and everything was just as we left it. We stayed in a suite for our final night and it was very spacious with a big bathroom with a tub. It was great. The only thing I would say about our final room though, is that is was a little loud. The room was on the second floor at the front of the hotel, with 2 small balconies looking out to the street. Very nice visually but loud at night with the cars and traffic outside. But, it was only for 1 night and we loved the suite so it was fine. Overall, we loved this hotel and would definitely recommend it.
