Casa Andina Private collection

Arequipa

Restored to its original grandeur, this white volcanic stone colonial mansion is the only 4-star hotel in Arequipa’s historic centre – and is as much a living museum as it is hotel. Inhabiting the 1794 former Casa de la Moneda (Mint House) it is one of Arequipa’s most sumptuous hotels. Meticulously restored and re-modelled in 2008 after more than a century of neglect, the hotel features high vaulted ceilings, 2 colonial courtyards, and an elegant gourmet restaurant.

OUR RATING:

Why we recommend it:

  • The colonial architecture makes it a hotel with lots of character.
  • Good location, 3 blocks away from the Main Square and at the back of the Santa Catalina Convent.
  • The modern part of the hotel is made from white volcanic stone.
  • The hotel has the best suites in town

THE STYLE

THE DETAIL

The lengthy restoration unearthed numerous surprises, including original frescoes, reliefs, and even a chapel long hidden from view. Five spectacularly large suites have been ingeniously adapted: a unique architectural skylight shields the main courtyard from Arequipa’s intense sun, and 36 new rooms occupy a sleek modern adjunct structure off a second interior patio.

Brilliantly illuminated at night, the hotel is in the heart of Arequipa’s historic quarter, just around the corner from the magnificent 16th-century Santa Catalina Convent and only 3 blocks from Arequipa Plaza de Armas.

The 41 rooms are made up of superior rooms, suites, Senior suites and Imperial Suites.  The Imperial and senior suites are full of historic character and occupy the original colonial manor house, while Superior Rooms and Suites are located over 4 floors of a newly but sensitively designed modern wing of the hotel, off the second colonial patio and with easy access to the terrace.
