Our favourite rooms
The Balcón suites are La Casona’s most tranquil. Each has a dining area, stone fireplace and balcony overlooking the courtyard. One also includes an original frieze dating back 400 years. Plaza Suite Two, once occupied by conquistador Diego de Almagro, is the biggest room and includes Pre-Colombian textiles and antique mirrors.
A good pair of sunglasses will help you see the sights in the intense mountain sunlight. Binoculars are available at the front desk – perfect if you want a bird’s-eye view of the nearby Incan fortress of Sacsayhuamán.
One baby cot is available free for kids up to two, subject to availability. Extra beds (US$110) are available for older children in the Balcon Suites. A 'child-explorer kit,' with flashlight, coloured pencils, magnifying glass and snack, can be purchased.
The hotel uses restored furniture and was built with organic insulation. Ownership group Inkaterra is carbon neutral and participates in several local conservation programs. If it can be, it’s recycled.
