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.

Our Expert's Opinion

A really good hotel, clean, excellent service, very cosy, lovely food, and staff. A really nice touch was that they brought us hot water bottles every evening to our rooms and tucked them under the covers - so nice! They were happy to bring us hot water and milk to make tea with at no extra charge.
