Housed in a historic 16th century mansion in the quaint San Blas neighborhood of Cusco, this casona, the Spanish word for a large and stately traditional home, has been lovingly restored to its former glory with stone patios, hand-crafted balconies and other original features.
Uniquely appointed rooms at Antigua Casona San Blas
The hotel offers 14 rooms and suites featuring charming, yet understated decór with handcrafted locally-made wooden furniture, original artwork and antiques, quality bedding and more. Most rooms feature a garden view and amenities include Wi-Fi, safe deposit boxes and in-room heating, including heated towel racks in the bathrooms. Colonial rooms feature their own private balconies overlooking beautiful gardens.
The casona offers an on-site restaurant – Piedra & Sal, which pays tribute to Peru’s Creole food traditions, a bar and an inviting lounge space with an inviting fire pit in the central courtyard – perfect for warming up on cooler evenings or relaxing in the sun on a nice day.
Explore Cusco from Antigua Casona San Blas

Here you’ll find some of the city’s best bars and restaurants and is great to stroll around, as it’s mostly free of traffic. The neighborhood also boats some of the best views of Cusco, due to its uphill location.
