Hotel Casa Vieja

Hotel Casa Vieja

Well-run hotel in a historic house dotted with antiques and knick-knacks in the centre of Chachapoyas.

The well-run Hotel Casa Vieja, dotted with antiques and knick-knacks, occupies a converted colonial townhouse in the heart of Chachapoyas. It has preserved the architecture and constructive scheme, arranged on two floors in the traditional galleried style of the area, with all of them giving onto a walkway around a pleasant central courtyard spilling over with flowering foliage.

Guestrooms are fairly basic but immaculately clean, and rather more comfortable than you might perhaps expect given the remote and rustic location. On the ground floor is a cosy sitting room where a crackling open fire wards off the chill on cold nights.
