      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

      Parkie had a recommendation for lunch from the lonely planet book where the burgers were advertised as insane. We were sold on this and went after me winning a few games of table tennis. After this we joined Jack & Parkie in a camping shop as they were to start their salkantay trek, a 5 day hike, at 3am and wanted to buy some gear. Claire and I upgraded our small bags, a great investment, to bring on the ...

Our lunch was overlooking cusco. As this trip ends it is hard to translate al, we learned. Our guide was so educated on the incas, modern day Peru and how things fit together in the world.

On the way we stopped at number of little villages to look at their churches and markets, stray dogs, llamas and people in traditional dress. David and I bought matching string bracelets from a market in Yanque, which now sit next to our Indian blessing bracelets. We arrived at the viewpoint to find it full of people, but we managed to find a quiet spot to look down into ...

      ... adjustment! The driving is ridiculous here too, I've mentioned it a few times already but it still shocks you. 80% of the cars we see would be defected at home! including taxis and buses. We seen a police officer writing a ticket for someone who they pulled over and I couldn't help but think what in the world he could be getting a ticket for? "Yeah Mate that's a fifty buck fine for wearing a seatbelt. Don't let me catch ya again." Last night I sore some police stop in the middle ...
