Chiclayo is a commercial hub in northern Peru. This city is one of the region’s most popular travel destinations because of the indigenous Moche and Sicán cultures, which built cities, pyramids and tombs in the surrounding desert from 100 A.D. until 1470 A.D. These days, travelers can visit the original tombs and large pyramids that remain. There are extraordinary museums dedicated to each culture that are fascinating to visit.
Casa Andina Select Chiclayo is set within an excellent part of the city—it’s just minutes from both downtown and the airport. The hotel is modern and has spacious common areas and very good restaurant.
The hotel’s 130 rooms are distributed across 7 floors. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. They have wooden floors, soundproof windows and flat-screen cable TVs. There is a desk where guests can work and a sofa for reading or relaxing. A mini-fridge allows you to store food or drinks and there is a coffee maker if you need to brew an afternoon pick-me-up. Additionally, all rooms come equipped with a private hot water bathroom, safety deposit box, iron/ironing board, and iPod dock/alarm clock. All are non-smoking.
A tasty breakfast buffet is served at the La Plaza Restaurant each morning. The breakfast includes eggs, cereals, seasonal fruits, ham, cheese and more. Lunch and dinner are offered as à la carte options, with meals that incorporate local ingredients and Peruvian flavors. Another option is the 24-hour Sama2go café, which provides guests with a wide selection of snacks, sandwiches, salads and beverages. The hotel’s bar is well stocked with liquors, beers, and wine—try a Pisco Sour or Chilcano while staying here.
When the heat becomes too much to handle, go cool off in the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool. The pool is big and circular and extremely refreshing on a hot summer day. If real relaxation is in order, you can book a massage or relax in the hotel’s sauna. On the flip side, if you feel like getting some exercise then you can visit the fitness rom, which is stocked with elliptical machines, treadmills, weights, and more.
Casa Andina Select Chiclayo has an Internet center where guests can search the web and check their email; free wireless Internet is also offered throughout the hotel. Other services include parking, ATM, laundry service, and an on-site hair salon.
