    Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Andina Classic - Cusco Plaza

    Great location, lovely hotel

    from

    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...

    from

    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."

    and

    " 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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Excellent Value

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Ok

    from

    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

    ... on both sides, and seemingly entirely built on ancient stone foundations laid by Inca hands. There are an astounding amount of Inca sites in the Sacred Valley. Many official ones one can visit on tours and marked on maps, but many more dotted around wherever you go. The Inca civilization was indeed prolific. After an early morning hike by myself up the mountain at Ollyantaytambo, past the ruins and up to a peak from where I could see the glorious snow capped ...

    After leaving Copacabana we crossed the border into Peru. The process went smoothly on exiting Bolivia, however on entering Peru they said we did not have the correct paperwork (which we do) and did not want to let is in. The border policemen then decided he would make an exception just this once and let us through. He may have been fishing for a bribe. At the border crossing we meet some ...

    ... heart of the Andes, snow capped peaks the lot. We left the train only to board another bus! This one took us a short 10 minutes up the hillside right to the gates of the lost Incan city. It was instantly impressive, surrounded by gargantuan mountains, one of the key reasons they built it here and also one of the main reasons it stayed hidden for so long. The real mystery of Machu Picchu is why it was abandoned. Personal possessions and the like were all left, it ...

    ... well it's fava beans that have been roasted and milled. You add the powder into water or milk or whatever and it basically makes a protein shake. It smelled really weird. Like beans with cinnamon and some other slight spicy scent. The taste wasn't awful... It was slightly sweetened, but it was thicker than I expected. Like a runny milkshake. It tasted better than it smelled. Although I don't know that I would get it again. The weather was better today. A little cool, but no ...

    Eventually we were joined by the other guys off our tour who had also been kicked out of WR and had relocated here, and later on still by the guys who weren't staying here. We then made our way over to WR which was heaving. About 50% of ...
