Nice hotel with a lovely garden. I could stay at the garden for hours! The room was clean but small and had a broken window. The bathroom was very good and new. The staff was very helpful and ready to help you.

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in Peru. The staff a very welcoming and helpful. Feels like a home away from home. Casa de Avila is very clean and quiet. Not far from old Arequipa town. As a solo female traveller it's a great choice, if you're looking for a comfortable experience.

It was great staying here and being able to organise things at the front desk they helped us with everything with the kindest smile! I could even book my flight on their computer! When we were tired and asked for a pizza order that was also possible!

We spent two nights at Casa de Avila and we were very happy with everything. The personnel was very friendly and accommodating, the room was good and quiet and the breakfast buffet was great too. Our daughter enjoyed very much the garden, always full of birds and a lovely galapago turtle called Paca. It is located quite conveniently on the...

Lovely hotel with a great garden to relax after exploring the city. The staff is very helpful and friendly. If you go to Arequipa and want to stay close to the historical center and have the option to relax go to Casa de Ávila.

All the staff were extremely helpful and the reception staff all spoke good English.

Sorry about the breakfast issue. Not being an excuse, breakfast is complimentary. Not included in the rate. Additionally, as we can´t force our staff to come earlier than 7 am (they have kids and need to send them to school), we will warn our guests its impossible to offer any packed lunch before 7 am. We will be glad to...

A mixed experience, for the hotel has a fine staff, a good breakfast and the rooms were spacious and fairly well-appointed. The hotel is at the edge of the historic district, about a 15 minute walk to the Plaza de Armas. With its large courtyard, the rooms are dark and quiet at night. The problem is a lack of heating,...

So good to know our weaknesses! Thank you for your comments. Now, all our Superior Rooms are provided with a heater system. Standard ones can have it for a small extra. (energy is an extra cost) or ask for more blankets for free. March was a terrible month for Peru. Floods and rain caused big damage. We tried to keep...

“The wifi doesn't work when the hotel is full so go out to the front desk area if you need to use internet. We splurged for the king room which was awesome as my wife and I are both tall people; it was nice to have a normal size bed in a country where double beds are the norm. The king room also came with two large storage closets and a mini fridge!”
