This place feels like a sanctuary from the crowded busy streets. We enjoyed a room that has a loft bed above the bathroom, with large windows that opened onto the inner courtyard. There is a cafe table and chairs, a comfy recliner, and luxurious double bed with sparkling embroidered sheets and wonderful designer coverlet. Breakfast is served in a beautiful,...

We had an outstanding stay here when in Arequipa. Fabulous and helpful staff, wonderful location, beautiful and spacious rooms, excellent price. (I'm sure you'll find this hotel praised elsewhere, and all of that praise is totally warranted.) We at one point missed a night bus, and they had a spare room for us ready at our previous rate; they didn't...

Each room is a little different, but all are charming. There are several lovely courtyards where you can sit with a glass of wine mulling over your day. No air conditioning, which is usually not a problem, but if you run into a warm day, your room could be warm. Small, but good, buffet breakfast, and there's a bar. Try...

We had a room with a loft bed - glad the hotel felt safe and quiet because we needes to leave our window full open at night (no grates or covering) to keep from suffocating. The coffee pot in our room meant that we could boil water and save plastic. The breakfast was great the first day when there was...

This converted mansion is only 2 1/2 blocks from the main square. The rooms are located off two internal courtyards. Most rooms do not have windows and our room was overly warm. Others at the hotel also thought their rooms were too warm. There are no fans in the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the water was hot in...

At first blush Casona Solar appeared to have it all. Good location, large room, nice courtyard, and so on. But the room has absolutely no ventilation. As a result, the room was exceedingly hot all the time we were there. The breakfast fare was acceptable, but nothing beyond the norm. We would not recommend.

This was such a disappointment. The facility is charming, with rooms in a lovely old converted stone house with courtyard. We had a quaint, two-story room with high ceilings, etc. etc. Problem was there was no window in the room; nor in the bathroom. And no fan. Outside, the weather was almost chilly. Inside, the stone walls kept in the...

This is the perfect hotel near Plazas de Armas in Areqipa. Wonderful staff, beautiful tranquil courtyard, lovely breakfast. Reserve a room in the inner courtyard. Reserve ZigZag restaurant for supper during your stay- fantastic trio of meats on a hot stone, including alpaca! A perfect place to stay to enjoy Areqipa and a lovely staff at the hotel.

Nice hotel and really friendly hotel staff. The senorita arranged for us the cooking class and arranged a 2 day trek to the colca canyon. We could leave our luggage at the hotel and on the day we come back we stayed a extra night before we leave to puno the next morning. The bus was also arranged for us...

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
