The Casa Andina Premium Collection Cuzco is housed in a renovated mansion in historic Cuzco in Peru, originally dating back to the 18th century, combining simple old world charm with pleasant communal areas and modern amenities.
The Casa Andina Premium Collection Cuzco is a recent addition to Peru’s Casa Andina Hotels, a leading hotel chain in the Andean region. Its cosy lobby and fireplace, three beautiful interior courtyards, and helpful and hospitable staff create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that is sure to enhance guests’ stay in Cuzco.
Located in the old colonial part of Cuzco, the Casa Andina Premium Collection sits directly in front of the Limacpampa square and is only three blocks from Cuzco’s main square, the Plaza de Armas. From the moment you step out of the hotel you'll easily be able to visit archaeological sites, colonial churches and living cultures within Cusco as well as in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
The hotel has a fantastic gourmet restaurant serving dishes made with delicious local produce, including many ingredients from the Sacred Valley.
Accommodation at the Casa Andina Private Collection is made up of 94 guest rooms, divided into 80 Superior Rooms (24m2), 13 Suites (48m2) and one Imperial Suite (61m2). The warmly decorated rooms surround three colonial-style courtyards with wooden balconies. The Superior Rooms have two full size or one king bed, the Suites have a super-king bed and living/work area, whilst the Imperial suite has a super-king bed and separate living area. All rooms feature cable TV, WiFi, heater and bathtub.
Casa Andina Private Collection Suites feature 1 king bed, separate living area, an oversized window, in-room heat, hair dryer and safety deposit box as well as complimentary wifi.
Children are welcome to come and stay at the Casa Andina Private Collection Cuzco. The spacious outdoor areas make it a good choice for those with children and connecting rooms are available for families.
The Casa Andina Private Collection Puno has a gourmet restaurant furnished with candelabras, wrought-iron chandeliers and colonial paintings. The innovative New Andean cuisine features many locally-inspired specialities using produce from the Sacred Valley, including yuca, quinoa and Andean trout. There are also tables for dining al-fresco in the courtyard, a lounge-reading room with fireplace, a colonial-style bar, internet centre and gift shop.
The Casa Andina Private Collection Cuzco is ideally located for exploring the colonial city of Cuzco, with its impressive Plaza de Armas, beautiful cathedral and a wealth of churches, museums, handicraft shops and cosy restaurants and bars. It is also possible to arrange excursions to nearby archaeological sites such as Sacsayhuaman and Ollantaytambo and of course Machu Picchu, although ideally an overnight stay is recommended here.
One of the newest upmarket hotels in Cusco inhabits one of the city's loveliest colonial structures, an 18th-century mansion on a small square in the heart of the old city. Sensitively restored and built around four interior patios, the hotel is like a budget version of the very elegant, and very expensive, Hotel Monasterio. For travelers looking for a bit of that hotel's ambience but not its elevated price tag, Casa Andina is one of the best-value luxury options in town. Rooms are spacious and cleanly outfitted, with a minimalist take on Andean decor. While my favorites are the suites in the old section of the hotel, the newer rooms thankfully are not distractingly modern, and, tucked away as they are from the street, they're nice and quiet. The gorgeous, deep-red sitting room, with its massive, roaring fireplace, is the perfect place to sip a pisco sour or coca tea and warm up on a chilly Cusco night. And the gourmet restaurant, named for the plaza it sits on, features stone arches, strong colors, and Cusco-school paintings, as well as a very fine haute Andean menu, making it one of those all too rare hotel restaurants that merits staying in for the night.
