Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Andina Classic - Cusco Plaza
Great location, lovely hotel
Great location with easy access to the main square and most things you will want to see in Cusco. This is a professional, friendly hotel that is part of a Peruvian chain.
Breakfasts were good, with lots of choice and a view over the city. The hotel were also good in looking after our large bags whilst we walked the Inca Trail. We've read some stories on here of things disappearing from bags but we had no problem - we just locked the bags up and they had given us tickets so no one esle can wander off with your bag. They also have scales to help you weigh your bags in preparation for the trail.
The rooms themselves were a bit small, but given the local architecture that is not so surprising. We did not get a view, but they had found a way to get some natural light in.
Overall a nice play to stay and we would definitely go back.
When is ' secure' not secure! Only at the Casa Andina Plaza...
We stayed at Casa Andina Plaza, Cusco for several nights, either side of a trip to Machu Picchu. Our tour company insisted we travel light to Machu Picchu, so we left our large locked suitcase in the hotel's 'secure' left-luggage storeroom. When we returned from Machu Picchu we discovered that my £200 Ipod had mysteriously disappeared from the suitcase - no signs of forced entry. We complained to the hotel manager who said a theft "was not possible". As we were leaving that day to return home, we took the matter up with our Peruvian travel agent. Then we discovered that another hotel guest, a Canadian, had also had his Ipod nicked from the left luggage room over the same period.
The Casa Andina executive responsible for all their Peru hotels also refuses to accept that any theft (or 2) ever happened. He said...
" Our main concern regarding the supposed theft is that the lock showed no signs of forced entry and that the suitcases looked exactly the same from the time they were left in the luggage room until they were returned to the guest's room."
" since all our security policies were strictly respected during the period in which this incident occurred, we are forced to assume that the supposed theft did not occur within our premises"
Just a tad naive, eh?
So be very careful with your valuables at Casa Andina Plaza, Cusco.
Una relación calidad-precio excelente
Acabo de regresar de haber pasado una semana en Perú, y Casa Andina fue de una relación calidad-precio excelente. Las habitaciones eran simples. Los baños eran muy limpios. Las habitaciones tienen calentadores portátiles, y la recepción tiene secadores para el pelo. El personal del hotel es muy amable y servicial. Nos permitieron pasar nuestra hora de check out para las 12:30 p.m. nuestro último día. También se aseguraron de que recibiéramos todos nuestros mensajes a tiempo. El desayuno aquí fue el mejor que hemos probado en un hotel en Perú. El comedor está en la cuarta planta, y tiene una bonita vista de la plaza. La ubicación es bonita. Queda cerca de una farmacia (es importante por si la altitud te enferma) y cafés Internet. Este hotel fue una visión acogedora luego de regresar de Aguas Calientes. Se lo recomendaremos a cualquiera que venga a esta hermosa ciudad.
Una ubicación limpia y central
Es mi primera vez y la de mi familia visitando un país extranjero, y nos encantaron las primeras noches en Cuzco por la estancia maravillosa que tuvimos en el hotel. Las vistas son estupendas, y queda en una ubicación muy central. Todo el personal fue muy cortés y servicial en todo momento. El desayuno fue estupendo, y las habitaciones estaban más limpias que las de ningún otro hotel en el que nos habíamos hospedado. Definitivamente le recomendaré este hotel a otras personas que visiten el área.
Just returned from a week in Peru and Casa Andina is an excellent value. The rooms were simple. The bathrooms were very clean. The rooms have space heaters and the front desk has hair dryers.
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. They allowed us to move our check-out time to 12:30pm on our last day. They also ensured that we received all of our messages in a timely manner. Breakfast here was the best we had at any hotel in Peru. The dining room is on the fourth floor and has a nice view of the plaza.
Nice location. Close to a pharmacy (important in case you get altitude sickness) and internet cafes. This hotel was a welcome sight after returning from Acquas Calientes. Will recommend to anyone coming to this beautiful city.
Clean, central location
First time for me and my family visiting a foreign country and we loved the first few nights in Cuzco because of the wonderful stay we had at the hotel. Great sights and it is in a very central location. All of the staff were very courteous and helpful at all times. Breakfast was great and the rooms were cleaner than any other of the hotels we stayed in. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others visiting the area.
Good value for your money, Great Location
Rooms were clean but small. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great value for $67 pre-paid internet rate.
Very Central, Great Staff
We spent one night at a comparably priced hotel that doesn't hold a candle to this Casa Andina. The rooms were small (but most were), had great hot water/water pressure, and the staff was constantly cleaning the place. The front desk staff was very friendly - we used them to arrange a private tour of the Sacred Valley and confirm all of our flights. The breakfast room (and some rooms) have nice views of the plaza. We visited in January and they were performing a decent amount of construction, so there was some noise. I assume this will be done before high tourist season.
Smell the room first!
Staff was great. Location is great. Can exchange money at front desk. $1 charge for using AT&T prepaid card, but no charge for Peru phone card calls. Some in our group were greeted with such strong smells in the rooms that they needed to change rooms. No problem. The source of smell in our room was moldy lampshades. We removed them, put into plastic bag and set in our teeny darling courtyard, and asked maid to leave them there during our stay. No problem. Beds were so-so. Some rooms are much larger than others. It would be good to take a tour first to smell/select your room. Breakfast buffet was very good. And, again, location is great.
very central, very reasonable hotel but very noisy. Check your room is not overlooking the plaza side of the hotel and you'll enjoy a stay here

... much closer to personal taste...just need to work out an export plan because between the gold, silver, hot neon colours and animal prints shopping here is a south africans heaven. So with tummies full and the waitress in shock as I polished off 3 meals in prep for hiking tomorrow, we are settling in and getting ready for bed. No fleas in this hotel room and a wooden floor so another reason to love small towns! The 80's music continues everywhere we go, I don't think ...
... Incan empire? They raise them with their other livestock and often they're running around the kitchens like free range chooks! They reckon our name of 'guinea pig' might come from Guinea (the African country they'd pass through on the way to Europe) and the pig comes from their squeals. Needless to say, we didn't bother trying this delicacy but we're told it tastes like across between rabbit and quail? We didn't actually stop in Cusco but boarded two buses and drove for two ...
... honour of the Inca's god of gods. This structure had a central adobe wall, flanked on each side by a row of 11 columns, over which a pitched roof would have stretched, some 25m beyond the columns each side, and was probably the largest single roof in the Incan empire. Today a surprising amount of the main wall survives and other parts have been reconstructed, and the sun still rises at the equinox ...
... we get to meet some of the group individually and begin to feel as though we've been very intolerant of the young crowd who are actually a very nice bunch. Even inquisitive Dutchie proves to be an thoughtful lad. The poor French girl Anais is the one now on the back foot as she spends most of her time trying to avoid the advances of our guide Richard who seems more interested in offering her an 'Inca massage' than any information about the Incas. Arriving in Aquas Caliente at ...
Monday evening I attended a talk on the history of Machu Picchu by Paolo Greer, the guy from the weekend hike. It was really interesting - he has a lot of theories that often don´t tally with the official line on things, but you´d be hard pressed to find someone who has researched the topics more thoroughly, so I´m inclined to believe him. For anyone planning on visiting Machu Picchu, I´d recommend reading some of his stuff / attending one of his talks before you go.
