Joshua was our host. He escorted us with such pride into the courtyard and then into the breakfast area. He was so helpful with conversations about the cocoa leaves and the candy and how it helps with altitude. He wanted to make sure we knew about the tea and how it was available throughout the day and evening. He was...

We loved the Hotel, very spacious room, exactly what we needed since we traveled with our daughter. Great service, very clean and only two blocks from the main Plaza. Josue at the reception desk was the most helpful person, you can ask him anything and he will have the answer.

Great hotel, historical restored and made into a great hotel. The rooms are spacy, modern bathroom. All services are offered, friendly employees. Minor negatives, a bit noisy and no fresh are possible in our room (no window). The wifi connection was very good, better then in most hotels I know.

This is a very nice hotel in Arequipa near the main area and the plaza. The service from the staff and particularly Joshua is just amazing. He is doing more than you can expect! The room and the place are just perfect! I highly recommend it! If I have to come back in Arequipa, without any hesitation, I would go...

We arrived at Casona Solar Hotel and were immediately upgraded to a superior room. The room was large with high vaulted ceilings and thick stone walls, so we had a peaceful sleep which was much appreciated after a long bus journey. We were only due to stay 3 nights but ended up staying 5 nights due to the terrible rains...

Small hotel in the downtown area of Arequipa providing excellent access to the city. The staff there were very accommodating about last minute date changes that we had to make due to a roadblock/general strike. The rooms are unique and the hotel grounds are lovely. We enjoyed our breakfasts there and found the service to be excellent and friendly.

One of the BEST hotel I have ever booked in my life! The building is completely made in Sillar, big white nricks made of the white local stone. The rooms are big, perfectly clean and full of beautiful paintings. Refrigerator, safety box, complimentary water (a 5 liters box!!!), many towels, hair dryer and big LCD TV (never turned on so...

Following the Lonely Planet the Casona... was "the" place to stay at Arequipa. It says (edition 2016): "Vivez comme un caballero de l'époque coloniale dans ce paisible 'jardin secret', à trois cuadras de la grand-place. Les chambres majestueuses du XVIIIème siècle, en pierre sillar, comportent parfois une mezzanine. Le service est tout aussi exceptionnel. La meilleure affaire de la ville,...

The hotel is in a heritage building that has been beautifully renovated - the curved brickwork inside the rooms was really cool. The room was spacious with comfortable beds, hot showers, and very clean. The wifi worked well. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfasts were great, the eating area was very pleasant and it was possible to interact...

An historic house converted into an hotel. Rooms are large, but no window. The patio and gardens are lovely, but some of the rooms are on the street, though quiet, which does not give the best experience. Breakfast is very nice. Staff is pleasant. Early departure for canyon colla trek, and a picnic was provided in place of breakfast. Central...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A colonial hotel with 300 years of history.Hotel Casona Solar is a beautiful restored colonial gentleman’s house build in 1702 in the centre of the colonial city of Arequipa. Hotel Casona Solar has the atmosphere that Arequipa had in the 18th century. The thick walls are made out of the white volcanic stone Sillar and all rooms have the so typical high arched roofs and big doors that enter one of the two central courtyards. All rooms have modern bathrooms with toilet. In our bar we serve every morning between 6 AM and 10 AM a breakfast buffet.In our big garden you can enjoy the blue sky and the 320 days of sunshine that Arequipa offers year in year out. The average day temperature is 25 degrees Celsius and rain is rare. After a long day exploring Arequipa and the surroundings you can enjoy the cool mountain evenings at our fireplace while having a snack and a drink.On just a 2 minutes walking distance you will find the ‘Plaza de Armas’ one of the most beautiful main squares of Peru. Also the neoclassical cathedral, the monastery of Santa Catalina, the mummy Juanita and the typical colonial buildings in classical Spanish style are one step away. You can always see from every point in the city the perfect conic 5822 meter high volcano El Misti.In 1980 hotel Casona Solar recieved the title national momument by UNESCO and INC. ... more   less
