Casa Arequipa Review

With 11 individually designed rooms, all decked out in luxuriously high-quality motifs and bedding, every last detail has been thought of—and applied. It's so personalized it's like you're visiting your best friends. This neocolonial boutique hotel, recently updated and expanded, books up fast and has won several awards. Filled with antique furnishings typical of the region, the hand-carved beds are piled high with alpaca blankets and 400-thread-count sheets to counter the cool Andean air. The extra charm comes from those who run it, the hospitable staff (they'll retrieve your luggage from the airport if it's delayed, iron your clothes, and throw you a party for your birthday). A lavish breakfast buffet includes an assortment of coffee, tea, breads, fruits, and eggs, served on a new rooftop nook with views of El Misti. In an upscale, residential neighborhood, it's a 10- to 15-minute walk from the center of town.
