Casa de Avila
Lonely Planet review
If the spacious courtyard garden doesn’t swing it for you, the congenial personalized service ought to – this is no ‘yes sir, no sir’ chain hotel. The place also hosts Spanish language courses and a more unique cooking course in the sunny garden three times a week.
Our independent authors have visited Casa de Avila and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Arequipa.

Description provided by property
Enjoy the traditional southern hospitality of Arequipa while you stay in Casa de Avila, the Garden Hotel.
The main attraction of this 1,100 square meter and only 2 floors property is the ample central garden, which defines the character of Casadeavila: spaces and green areas. Rest , read a book, use your laptop or gadget, take a cold beer, relax and chill out in this oasis of calm and beauty at walk distance from the main square and center of the city.
Two kinds of rooms, All Superiors arround the Central garden and Standards at the entrance block. Both with comfortable mattresses, private bathrooms with hot water, cable TV and wifi signal.
Our Travel desk will help you with information and booking to the most popular activities in the region: volcano climbing, rafting, trekking, and biking. Our famous Spanish School, maybe the best value activity. And if you like cooking, try our Cooking Experience.
Cafeteria offers Contintental breakfast early morning (included in all rates), and extras (very cheap) all day. Room service and delivery on demand.
