Historic Budget Casona all on One Floor
Posted Jun 6, 2015 on Hotels
This was my second stay at the Casona Solar, this time for six days, in a quieter room off the interior courtyard that was farther away from the street.
The foliage in the courtyards was beautiful, and the hotel retained its old-world charm. My single room had plenty of scalding hot water, a refrigerator, and the usual sillar-stone vaulted ceiling. Unfortunately, the bed was less comfortable than the one I had slept in during my previous stay. The staff arranged taxis to and from the airport (25 PEN soles each way). A modest breakfast of boiled eggs, fruit, tea and bread was included every morning.
On the down-side: The electricity went out for 14 hours and the hotel had no back-up generator, so food in the refrigerator spoiled. The mgmt elected to have construction crews work on the building during a full house and a wedding, which was loud and annoying. The hotel tried to charge me an extra 10%, which it had not done previously, but when I objected, they removed the charge.
Overall it was another enjoyable, reasonably-priced stay.
