La Mansion Casa
La Mansion Casa is a typical mid-range hotel in the Andean town Andahuaylas with simple guest rooms and a cafeteria.
Established in 2012, this is a modern hotel which genuflects to Peru’s colonial style with white-washed walls, little balconies and tiled roofs, comprising a building set in a flowery garden with a sunny aspect. Polished wood and gleaming tiles add to the bright and cheery ambiance.
The guest rooms are compact, neat and light but the fabrics rather chinzy reflecting traditional Peruvian taste – don’t be surprised if you find some towel art on your bed! The public areas are more modern with bold colours and glass table tops, and other decorations refer to aspects of Peruvian culture.
The basic comforts – heating and private bathroom with hot shower – are present, as is a laundry service, parking and cafeteria, and complimentary Wifi is available.

Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Picchu... does anyone traveling to Peru ever put anything else? :-)ME, Carlisle
The Inca Trail with the 3 day camping has to be the most memorable part. It was an extraordinary adventure - tough, exhilarating, stunning and as a family with grown up children an amazing challenge to do as a group of 5. We all loved Peru and our holiday. Peru surprised us. It blew our minds. The country is stunning, the people charming, the history fascinating and the food absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning and maybe trying the Salcantay trek! We will definitely want to return to El Tambo for more chill time!GC, London
Highlights:- It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay.ND, Lewes
