Housed in a beautiful historic building, and conveniently located in the middle of Arequipa‘s historic district, Casa Andina Premium is one of Good Life Expeditions top recommendations for an Arequipa hotel. Just in front of the Santa Catalina Convent, and a short walk from the main square – the Plaza de Armas, it’s a great base for exploring the beautiful ‘white city’ and a launch pad for adventures in nearby Colca Canyon, Peru.
The Hotel’s Rich History
Built in 1794 and originally the city’s mint, the historic building is one of Arequipa’s most beautiful, oozing with character and references to its illustrious past, with many original features preserved including vaulted ceilings, frescos and murals, and two internal courtyards surrounded by columns.
Accommodations and Amenities at Casa Andina Premium Arequipa
The hotel’s spacious and comfortable rooms are mostly located in the adjacent modern block, with five in the original historic building. All are spacious and comfortable, decorated in a classic style. The best rooms are the colonial suites with sillar (the white volcanic rock Arequipa is known for) stone walls, wrought iron windows and traditional décor. Modern amenities in all rooms include free Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and safety deposit boxes. The showstopper Imperial Suite includes its own living room, and an original wooden balcony with stunning views across the city.
The hotel’s onsite restaurant Alma, which opens onto the main courtyard, serves traditional dishes from Arequipa, some of Peru’s best-loved Peruvian food, along with international dishes to satisfy all tastes. The hotel’s rooftop offers stunning views of the Cathedral and El Misti volcano in the distance.
