A smaller property in the quaint neighbourhood of San Blas, Antigua Casona is an intimate and traditional lodge nestled in a quieter and quirky part of Cusco. Winding cobbled streets lead upwards towards this hotel, tucked away modestly in the vibrant, artistic sector of the city. A hidden gem, modest and full of character.
Authentic Peruvian hospitality is experienced at its finest in Antigua Casona San Blas. The care taken to highlight the building’s original architecture is replicated in the staff’s compassion towards guests. The warm atmosphere of this lodge is achieved through the people who run it.
Beautifully appointed rooms wind around a central courtyard, hosting a huge firepit to get cozy by in the cooler Cusco evenings. Stone patios with carved wood ornaments and draping indigeneous plants are overlooked by handcrafted banisters and balconies of the original Casona.
Enjoy cultural heritage and history, art and comfort all in one secluded city spot. Gorge yourself on an extensive and incredibly fresh breakfast downstairs at the restaurant and bar, and try the speciality coca tea to cure altitude sickness. Piedra y Sal is one of Cusco’s top restaurants, and is on site here in Antigua Casona San Blas. Treatments at the natural spa, and a yoga studio are readily available to wind down after a day’s excursion in the capital city of the Kingdom of the Sun.
