10/10 Exceptional

Tranquil haven in Arequipa
A converted historical house with two courtyards, one with a garden and one with a fountain. I found a warm welcome here and the staff were very accommodating; a packed breakfast was offered straight away when I said I would be leaving for a tour at 3am. Some might find the rooms a little dingy if spending a lot of time in them: the ground floor rooms in the garden courtyard are really lower-ground floor with no windows. This makes them warmer in winter and cooler in summer (there is no air con). My suggestion- get out and explore Arequipa or sit in the delightful courtyard.

Super clean.
Great location, safe and a few blocks from the center. Really beautiful restored building. Breakfast was yummm with plenty of free coffee refills. Tea was always available. They are very covid conscious and you have to wash your hands when you get inside the hotel and spray the bottom of your feet. Super clean.

8/10 Very good

A lovely hotel - with a lovely courtyard just a few blocks from the plaza. Staff were exceedingly helpful with making things happen (our Uber to the colca kept cancelling - and the staff rapidly arranged alternative transport). The room itself was a little peculiar - I think a function of the old colonial architecture - there wasn’t much natural light or air and the room got very warm during the night.

We came to Arequipa for our son's wedding. There were seven rooms reserved by wedding participants. We were so impressed by the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. The courtyards were perfect for friends and family to gather. The rooms were all unique and beautiful. This was my favourite hotel during our stay in Peru. Thank you, Hotel Casona Solar!
