Antigua Casona San Blas is a friendly colonial-style hotel blending the old with the new in the arty San Blas district close to Cusco's historic main square.

There are many reasons why a stay in baroque San Blas, Cusco’s most arty neighbourhood and the place you are most likely to experience a mildly bohemian atmosphere, is an excellent choice for visitors. Not least is its location just a couple of blocks from the main square (admittedly up a slope) and the proximity of no end of small shops, galleries, cafés and occasional markets.

The welcoming hotel Antigua Casona San Blas is one of the quarter’s most recent additions, though like many other hotels in the city it embraces a renovated Spanish colonial residence as well as a more modern part which has been designed to blend harmoniously with the older section. The historic atmosphere is enhanced with pretty balconies, pot plants brimming with bright green foliage, and a cosy sitting area in the interior courtyard which may host an open fire on chilly evenings. Families with children are welcome.

What our clients say

  • The whole holiday was memorable and the flow and way it had been planned was excellent - we had a build up that allowed us to visit other parts of Peru, acclimatise and take in the history, culture and natural scenery before capping it off with the Inca trail and Machu Picchu! 

    AB, Reading
  • "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,
  • “The most enjoyable… Having chocolate pancakes in the narrow cobbled streets of Cusco. And in the mountain village of Aguas Calientas. And in lots of other places. The kids having fun with the cats at the cat park of Lima. Meeting a mountain family and finding out about their way of life. This included meeting their guinea pigs – kept purely for their meat.” 

    LBM, South Africa
  • We really enjoyed the whole trip and found the Peruvian people very friendly and helpful and determined to better themselves and their country.

    SJ, Cambridge
  • Peru was incredible. The slick organisation of Journey Latin America allowed us to really enjoy every moment. The service was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend.

    HG, Malvern
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Perhaps looking down on Machu Pichu for the first time, or was it the ceviche for lunch as part of the buffet in the Sacred Valley, or maybe Buenos Aires( a mixture of New York side walks and Parisian Boulevards )or the tranquillity of the gardens @ L'Auberge Hotel. and not forgetting the splendour of the Basilica at Cusco
