Beautiful garden surrounded by the rooms. They have Peruvian cooking classes everyday and spanish lessons in the garden. The receptionists were very friendly and spoke english very well. They were very helpful with tour information and let us have a late check out for about half the price of the room. Lovely stay!

We arrived early in the morning after an overnight bus journey and were greeted by Juan in a very helpful and friendly way. We didn't expect to have access to our rooms until later but Juan helped us up with our luggage and settled us into our rooms straight away. That set the tone for our stay. Staff were always...

Had a great stay here. We paid a bit more for a better room. Rooms open onto the garden with tables and sunshades. Lovely friendly staff speaking good English. Great breakfast. Our son left at 3am to go on a trek and was offered a wake-up call with coffee! Loved the birds, but best is the tortoise. Due to horrendous...

Everything we looked for in a city hotel and one that helped get our 6 month trip of South America off to a good start and to a relaxing finish with a second visit. Friendly staff who encouraged us to learn language, cuisine and who provided help with tourist information. Staff who put us first and made us feel like...

My husband and I felt immediately at home in Casa de Avila. We spent a week there exploring the area and taking Spanish classes in their beautiful garden. Well located 5-10 mins from the Plazas de Armas, Casa de Avila was originally a large family home. Now the spacious well appointed rooms surround the flower and bird filled garden courtyard....

I enjoyed my stay at Casa de Avila. The hotel room was modern and clean. It had a lovely sunny courtyard. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. A walkable distance from the centre of Arequipa.

Actually, its called Casa, but its really bigger than a Casa right? And I agree, staff here is the best asset we have. They are increidible and very original. Away from noisy traffic of the center, but very close to all attractions, in a quiet neighborhood in Arequipa Thank you

It is a different type of hotel, Classic, colonial style. We can enjoy the nature because every room is togheder garden. The garden is amazing, there are always birds singing. It was a fantastic experience. Really I like a lot this place!!

Yes, thats what we want you to feel while staying in Casa de Avila. A close relation with nature and relax. The garden is great for spending sometime under the umbrellas and take a natural juice meanwhile. And breakfast next to the garden, with birds singing and flowers blooming is spectacular Welcome anytime!

This hotel offers a peaceful atmosphere with a central garden surrounded with rooms on 2 levels. My room was on a second level and although there is no elevator, meaning one has to carry his/her suitcase up the stairs, it is a very small inconvenience comparing to the advantage of having a bright bedroom on the second level. Just a...

“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!”
