Casual luxury at its best
The old colonial building in which the hotel is built is truly beautiful. Our room was large, stunning and luxurious. The staff at the hotel is incredible. You won’t find better service anywhere. Excellent dining as well. Very nice breakfast and afternoon tea.
A Gem of a Small Hotel
Like most Relais & Chateaux, Inkaterra aspires to a world class luxury experience, and it delivers in every way. The hotel is small, having once been home to Simon Bolivar, and is on an elegant square near the main square but away from the crowds. The décor combines colonial antiques with indigenous furnishings, resulting in a luxurious but also comfortable living room and dining area. You are invited to have the staff light a fire for you and draw a bubble bath, which my wife enjoyed. Her massage was also excellent, which is not always the case in far flung countries without a lot of training. The staff is impeccably well-mannered, and indulged us our practicing Spanish without visibly grimacing. The rooms surround a central courtyard, which is beautifully tended and can be used for outdoor dining. Our room did not have a view, but it was beautifully decorated with a new modern bathroom with tub and shower, which was as large as some hotel rooms. I would recommend this hotel as an ideal choice, and found nothing but kindness and professionalism in a romantic and historic setting.
Exceptional centrally located boutique hotel.
We stayed in La Casona for two nights in late October. The boutique hotel only has 11 rooms but staff were literally everywhere. They placed us in the matrimonial suite ( Room No.4) which you would expect to be better than a normal room, but it was just gorgeous. A separate bathroom with twin sinks and an enormous shower was the order of the day. The room had a very fast broadband which recorded download speeds of 184 Mb/sec. Upload speed was quite a bit slower at 4Mb/sec but still OK. The room, the bathroom and the hotel itself had many design features that respected Peru’s Inca past. Breakfast was a great occasion with excellent staff. The food was superb, the setting of the breakfast room was in keeping with the overall theme of the hotel. We would like to thank especially Pablo but also Nichelson.
Best in the World
Superb 16th century mansion turned into a boutique hotel with just 11 suites. Wonderfully spacious luxury full of genuinely authentic furniture and decorative pieces of the early Spanish conquistador period. Staff are exceptional, attentive, efficient, nothing too much trouble. We stayed twice for a total of 3 nights and can honestly say it’s one of the very best hotel experiences we have ever had.
The best hotel I have ever stayed in!
This place is world class. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left (both times we stayed!) the staff were just fabulous - nothing is too much and they know how to be attentive but without fussing. We stayed in two rooms - 5 and 6 - both suites at the front of the hotel. Both were fabulous - lovely big bed which was super comfy, lounge area and also a bathroom separated nicely from the main room. The finish is a very high standard and the furnishings really complement the building style and size! The common areas were equally nice to spend time in. A few people have commented in other reviews about the noise from outside the hotel. We had a little bit of road noise (including a band serenading a wedding one night) but that to me is part of the charm. Certainly no issues with the bar next door and we stayed on a Saturday night. The staff running the bath for you and making the fire when you want is a cute thing to do and only adds to the charm of this place. Based on the fact that we were always warm enough we never did the fire .. but we did smile when we got into bed and found hot water bottles! Clearly they don’t want you to be slightly cold ... ever! We didn’t have evening dinner in the hotel as we like to explore (I can highly recommend Inkazuela on the square though). Breakfast we had a couple of times and tried the more traditional Peruvian dishes as well as the standard eggs options. All very nice. Great Wi-fi as well ... nearly as good as my super fast at home. Allowed my husband to stream the rugby World Cup which made him very happy Two final things to mention ... -Baby Jesus! You know you are in a catholic country when the do not disturb sign is a baby Jesus in a wooden crib! Made us laugh a lot - Bulls under the cross of the roof are a nice touch. Especially when you start moving around Peru and you see them on all the roofs. It’s a great location and I really will miss this place as we move further south into Bolivia and Chile. I already expect this will be the best hotel of our trip.
