“Beautiful hotel, wonderful service, fantastic vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2009

Staying at Casa Andina was a perfect way to experience Cusco. The gorgeous, historic hotel was well-situated and a restful retreat in the midst of the city's amazing culture. The staff was incredibly friendly and the concierge was always willing to help out with travel arrangements and restaurant recommendations. I can't wait to return!

We felt comfotably nestled in luxury in this Colonial-era mansion, even as we took full advantage of the modern amenities like free internet, an in-house ATM and plenty of heat (though never the TV). Easy walking distance from the main Plaza, Avenida del Sol, numerous excellent restaurants, the craft market and other key sites. Great breakfasts in the morning, mate de coca 24/7, and really excellent, friendly service. Though certainly not the cheapest hotel in Cuzco, it offers more than quite a few places that are noticeably more expensive. We really enjoyed being there.

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Casa Andina Private Collection - Cusco twice during our trip to Peru. Once before our exploration of Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes... and the second on the way back from the Sacred Valley. Overall... this hotel met our needs in terms of location... food... and comfort. The only thing that we really thought could be improved was the "plain" feeling of the rooms.

We arrived in Cusco from Peru for our first stay and were taken to the hotel via a private shuttle we had booked. Overall... the airport is not very large but there definitely are a group of taxi drivers trying to get your business at the exit of the terminal. I felt it was a plus to already have our ride booked... made everything very easy. At the hotel... check-in was fairly simple. Since we got there at 12 Noon... our room was not quite ready... so we relaxed and drank some coca tea that the hotel offered for free. After waiting approximately 30 minutes... we were shown to our room where we got settled before eating a lunch at the hotel and a couple tours we had planned that afternoon. The room overall was plain and not too large... but it worked for us. The bathroom was a good size. I guess it would have been nice to have a bit more "decoration" to the room... but for others this doesn't matter.

If I had to do things again... my wife and I probably should have just relaxed the whole day at the hotel... potentially only going to the Plaza de Armas during the evening. The altitude did not affect me... but it did hit my wife pretty bad. We had tours of the Temple of the Sun... the Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas... and a trip to Sachsayhuaman. This was too much. My wife started getting a headache and needed to slow down. Our guide did give her some oxygen and rubbed something on her neck to get a bit more blood flowing to her head. This immediately helped... but my wife needed to crank things down a bit... and slept in the room for several hours that evening. It definitely helped. We then had a light dinner at the hotel restaurant... which I can recommend. The food was excellent and they will make just about anything for you... even if it isn't on the menu.

For our second stay... we were able to stay 2 nights... and my wife felt much better since we had both had plenty of time to acclimate to the elevation. We were a bit late getting to Cusco because of a strike that day... but ultimately we made it that evening (about 8 PM). Being a bit later... we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant again... and it did not disappoint. The next day... we had booked a whitewater rafting trip in the Sacred Valley. It was a blast... and I would highly recommend going on an adventure like this on the Urubamba River. Fun! Afterwards... we saw the ruins of Ollantaytambo. Definitely get a guide here if you go... it really allows for a better understanding of the ruins. When we got back to Cusco... we ventured to the Plaza de Armas (about 10 minutes from the hotel walking) for dinner and did some shopping. My wife wanted to find some baby alpaca yarn. We had some trouble finding some at first... but the shop owners were very friendly in giving us some recommendations on where to find some. The area was packed with people and at no time did we feel unsafe. The only thing that was a bit annoying were the vendors trying to get you to get a massage from them. All you needed to do was say... "No Gracias"... but we ended up saying this quite a bit. After wandering around a bit more of Cusco... we got back to our hotel to turn in for the night... before our trip to Puerto Maldonado and the Tambopata River.

Overall... we had a good time in Cusco. The city itself is much larger than I thought it was going to be... over 500,000 people. There is a lot to see... and I recommend going to the Temple of the Sun... the main Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas and of course Sachsayhuaman. We felt completely safe in the city... there are a lot of people walking about the town. Again... a big recommendation... take it easy your first day in Cusco. Its at an elevation of over 11,000 feet. It does take time to acclimate.

The hotel was in a good location... and although in a busy city seemed very peaceful in the courtyards. The rooms are a bit plain... but I can deal with that issue. Restaurant was good... both for dinner and the included breakfast buffet. Staff was friendly as well.

When we arrived at the Casa Andina Classic Plaza Hotel in Cusco we were very warmly greeted. The hotel room and the staff were wonderful during our whole stay. We couldn't ask for more. We thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone, and will surely be staying there again when we visit next time. A thoroughly fantastic holiday made better by the warm and caring staff, where nothing was too hard for them to try to make our stay happier.

The staff at this hotel, particularly the restaurant waiters and Marco who could turn his hand to pretty much anything, deserve special mention. Any problems that we had (e.g. losing our holiday itinerary and trying to get it replaced; access to the internet; calling a doctor) were handled promptly, professionally and in a way that made you feel you were the hotel's only customer. The staff are a credit to the hotel, and the hotel was beautiful.

We have just returned from a 2 week trip through Peru. We stayed in Casa Andina Private Collection Cusco for 2 nights. We had 2 rooms next to each other which were a very nice size and very comfortable with a good heater. This hotel is located very near the Plaza de Armas so is very convenient for sightseeing. We had breakfast each morning in the hotel and the food was excellent. We needed an early transfer from the hotel to the train station to take the train to Puno and the hotel made arrangements to take us in the hotel van. We also used the laundry service & it was cleaned & returned on time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cusco.

We also stayed in Casa Andina Private Collection in Puno and Arequipa. All of these properties are great. CAPC in Arequipa is probably the nicest of the 3 hotels that we stayed in.

This was our itinerary:

Morning flight into Cusco – met by private English speaking guide/driver for day to see Awanacancha and Pisac. Stayed Kuchi Rumi in Urubamba.

Private English speaking guide/driver for day to see Ollantaytambo, Chinchero, Moray, Maras, salt mines. Stayed Kuchi Rumi in Urubamba.

Took morning PeruRail train from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu. Met English speaking guide at Machu Picchu for full day tour. Stayed Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge.

Took afternoon PeruRail train from Machu Picchu to Ollantaytambo. Driver took us on to Cusco. Stayed Casa Andina Private Collection Cusco.

Private English speaking guide/driver for day to see ruins around Cusco and Cusco sights. Stayed Casa Andina Private Collection Cusco.

Took PeruRail Andean Express Train from Cusco to Puno. Stayed Casa Andina Private Collection Puno.

Full day tour by fast boat of Uros and Taquile Islands. Stayed Casa Andina Private Collection Puno.

Private English speaking guide/driver took us from Puno to Chivay for lunch and then on to Colca Lodge. Stayed Colca Lodge.

Guide/driver took us to Cruz de la Condor to view flight of condors and to visit small villages in the canyon. Free afternoon at Colca Lodge. Stayed Colca Lodge.

Guide/driver took us to Arequipa. Afternoon visit to “Juanita” museum and Santa Catalina Convent. Stayed Casa Andina Private Collection Arequipa.

Flew LAN from Arequipa to Puerto Maldonado. Stayed Lake Sandoval Lodge for 4 day/3 night program in Amazon jungle lodge.

Flew LAN from Puerto Maldonado to Lima and then home to USA.
