Directions to Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel
Until 2008, there was no exclusive hotel in the central area of Arequipa and the Liberator located on the nearby riverbank was the sole owner of the luxury market. The new Casa Andina Private Collection hotel opens another option and is the best bet for those travelers who wish to walk through the historic district without having to take a taxi.
For a long time, Arequipa is a very popular place for tourists, however it has been a city with only one luxury hotel. While the new Arequipa version of the Casa Andina Private Collection group has the typical guest rooms, the suites and public areas are another story and makes it easily the best hotel in the central part of the city. The level of English is quite good here and the staff works hard to provide a very personalized service.
Private collection Arequipa As with many hotels in Peru, public areas are housed in a restored historic building - three blocks from the central square - while most of the rooms are in a new annexed building. The restaurant, bar, and patio are evocative areas, complete with the original white stones, thick columns, and stucco.
Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel
The buffet breakfast that is included in the price is served under partial roofs in one of the two central courtyards, with portable stoves that eliminate the cold when necessary. You can enjoy lunch or dinner inside in the more formal restaurant near the front of the hotel. Unfortunately, this beautiful dining area has problems filling up with diners since the city has so many excellent options within walking distance. You can order a Pisco Sour smoothie in style in the small bar or enjoy drinks on the sofa in the attached patio lobby.
Most of the standard rooms are not compatible with the strong impact or historical style caused by the front of the hotel. The rooms are armed based on the typical rectangle seen in hotel chains, with average closet space and safe deposit boxes that require a deposit. The furniture is catalog and are similar to those found in all other hotels of the Casa Andina chain, and it is difficult for two people to be in the bathroom at the same time.
All these details are compensated for by a variety of amenities, from a kettle with hot water and a selection of tees, robes, quality toiletries, and free wireless Internet access. The beds are luxurious and comfortable and the folding service includes a silver tray with exclusive chocolate bonbons.
Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel
If possible at the time of booking, request an upgrade and choose one of the four suites located in the original building. The Republican Suite (212) is the largest and has the most comforts, with a full living room, terrace, oil paintings, and a huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a separate marble shower. Andina luxury hotel Arequipa The three Colonial Suites have original white volcanic rock walls, arches, seating areas, and bathrooms with tubs and compartmentalized showers.
There is a small business center at no additional charge for those traveling without a laptop and also an exclusive clothing and jewelry store. The reception can coordinate tours and excursions.
While the Arequipa version of the Casa Andina Private Collection has much more of the wow factor for its public areas than for its standard rooms, its defects are really associated with weaknesses rather than deficiencies. It provides a much more modern feeling than the Hotel Libertador and is more convenient for exploring the attractive colonial city without having to rely on a taxi or a driver. With a smiling service that satisfies the majority of guests, this hotel has quickly become the most chosen by groups and couples of luxury tourists. Until the Liberator wakes up and modernizes, there are more reasons to make your reservation here instead of the other side of the city unless you are looking for outdoor spaces, easy parking, and a swimming pool.
