Casa Andina Select Arequipa is located in Arequipa's historic city centre and lies just opposite the Plaza de Armas, the city’s main square which is characterised by grand ex-colonial buildings. There are two other Casa Andina hotels in the city, and this one is a comparatively mid-range option. While the hotel is set in a historic building with its façade featuring two stories of pretty arched colonnades, the rooms have a simple, modern feel and offer plenty of creature comforts.

There are a total of 58 air conditioned rooms, some with terraces and some without. All rooms come with amenities such as a minibar, an LED TV, a hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. Rooms are generally arranged with two twin beds, though rooms without a terrace can be converted to a queen bed formation instead. Many of the rooms offer views of the Plaza de Armas and the immediate area’s many well preserved historic buildings.

The comprehensive facilities include a well equipped fitness centre, a rooftop pool and a computer room. Complimentary buffet breakfasts are served, with additional meals available for an extra cost. La Plaza Restaurant is the hotel’s one and only eatery; it’s a relaxed, casual restaurant serving an array of freshly prepared meals with a focus on local specialties and Peruvian cuisine. The restaurant has a fully stocked bar and offers open-air dining amidst the hotel’s colonnades.

The many attractions of Arequipa lie right on the hotel’s doorstep - there are scores of museums and magnificent, beautifully maintained churches to visit, along with bustling markets and diverse collections of restaurants, bars and cafes. Further afield is the spectacular Colca Canyon, one of the world’s deepest canyons, and there are several volcanoes that border the city, including the snow-capped El Misti.

Children are welcome at the hotel, and although there are no particular facilities for youngsters, there's plenty for all age groups to enjoy in Arequipa and beyond.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
