Casa Andina Private Collection Arequipa Review

As upscale as it gets, this is the place to go for top-of-the-line amenities. Housed in the city's former coin mint and national historical monument, this midsize hotel opened in 2008 after an extensive renovation to a building that sat decrepit for decades. Colonial suites are as atmospheric as those you would find at the much more expensive Hotel Monasterio in Cusco. The arched-stone-walled rooms are massive in size and are decorated with oil paintings and period furnishings, and modern amenities barely alter the vibe. The modern section of the hotel has rooms and suites featuring Andean weaves, newfangled furniture, plush modern bedding, and elegant fixtures. Many rooms have romantic views of the city. Two colonial courtyards beg for a night walk. The gourmet restaurant serves creative novo cuisine in its hip dining area and there's a coin museum in honor of the building's history.
