The best hotel in ArequipaPosted Apr 27, 2012
I can't say enough good things about this hotel! There were smiles and courtesy from everyone, and I want to go to Arequipa again just so I can stay in la Casa de Avila!

Lovely hotel to stay and and chill outPosted Dec 29, 2011
Location: All areas in central Arequipa feel safe.
Casa de Avila was so homely and the gardens were so relaxing to come back to. The staff were more than helpful and booked the Colca Canyon tour for us. Hotel is quite central - about 5 minute walk from the main Plaza and is very quiet.

Great little hotel in Arequipa.Posted Nov 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
This was a very good stay for me. Its location was not too far from the main square. Rooms had plenty of space with a closet. TVs had cable with many channels, including several English-speaking ones. Wi-Fi in the room had a great signal. The courtyard is awesome. Breakfast was just bread and juice. One hint would be to have the address handy for cab drivers as the one from the bus terminal did not know the hotel by name.

Very nice hotelPosted Jun 13, 2011 on Hotels.com
We booked a triple room at casa de Avila for only one night. The room was big and clean. The bathroom was clean, the shower had hot water. Free breakfast, 2 computers with free internet, free wi-fi. There is a large garden with tables and chairs where you can eat, drink or just relax. Staff was very friendly and was of a great help during our stay. Also, they stored our bags during 2 days free of charge while we were doing the colca canyon tour. The hostel is well located too, it's a 5 minutes walk to Plaza de Armas. The only thing I wouldn't recommend from this hotel is to book a tour with them. It's way too much pricey. It's better to buy from tour operators around Plaza de Armas where you can bargain the price ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED HOSTEL ! You won't be disappointed !

Great value hotel close to all major attractionsPosted Apr 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a little gem. Good value for singles, families and small groups with basic accommodation very close to the historic city centre. The large central garden courtyard is a fantastic bonus and a brilliant place to sit and relax or line in the sun and grab some rays. All the staff are very friendly and extremely knowledgement with great restaurant and touring tips. The is a travel office able to book all local tours and bus travel. No doubt the best value hotel in town... . basic but extremely comfortable and a home away from home.
