Review | Casa Falleri Boutique Hotel | Barranco, Peru

After roughing it in hostels for the first few days, Tyguenne and I were excited to check in to Casa Falleri for our first weekend in Peru.  We first found the hotel by roaming around the neighborhood in search of a good bar because we heard Barranco was THE PLACE to get our first pisco sours.  We walked around for an hour in search then heard the song “Benny and the Jets” playing on full blast from what looked like an old mansion.  Me, being me, I just walked right in and started singing along, found the bar and made myself at home!
The bartender, Jorge, gave us a good deal on our drinks (2 for 1!) and we decided to come back that weekend to stay and review the property.
While I’ve experienced many boutique hotels, I’ve never stayed in a hotel like this one before.  The entire property is full of old antiques and family heirlooms- there’s even framed letters from the owners great grandparents on the wall.
If I were to go back to Barranco, I would opt to stay here again for a few reasons.

  1.  Prime location right in the heart of Barranco (although it was really loud at night with a “dicotecha” across the street bumping music until 5 AM).  Barranco is definitely a party neighborhood, so don’t show up expected to go to bed early, like Tyugenne and I attempted to.  During the daytime, however, the location served as a perfect starting point for us to walk around and explore.

    Tons of beautifully painted houses in this neighborhood.  I love it!

  2. The staff is family and friends so you can feel a sense of community and comfort staying here, which was cool for us two travelers far away from home.

    This is one of the hotel owners, Giancarlo (John Travolta lookalike right?!)

  3. Breakfast was free and delicious, with unlimited coffee (the most important part for me, of course).
  4. Old school charm fills the walls and rooms of the entire hotel.  It almost felt like we were transported to another era in there!  I mean…they serve meals with real antique silver and tea cups.  SO cute!
  5. The bar has the most adorable bartender ever, Cesar, who humored our terrible attempts at Spanish and showered us with delicious pisco sours.  When Cesar wasn’t working, Jorge was there and he was equally fun.  Loved both of them, and now I know I love pisco sours too!  WIN WIN!

    My first pisco sour!

    Who knew that Peru had their own craft beer scene?!  I didn’t.

    Jorge is THE MAN!

Overall it was great weekend at Casa Falleri and we’re so glad we decided to stay.
Thanks for hosting us for a beautiful weekend Casa Falleri staff!

About the Author:

On August 14th, 2015 I left my life in the United States behind with the intention to never look back. I had the "American Dream" and I woke up from it, to create a new reality for myself. I sought out beauty in a world that was increasingly dark for me at the time and ended up finding more than I bargained for. With only a backpack, I traveled across Europe, South East Asia and then on to Africa. With over 30 countries stamped in my passport, I've become an entirely new version of myself with a broader perspective on what it means to be a woman in today's world. My hope is that by sharing my stories and featuring women like me from around the world, we can inspire others to break down their own internal barriers and go cross a few international borders while they're at it. I truly believe travel can be healing to a troubled soul, empowering to the lost and rejuvenating for the exhausted. Perspective is everything, and I believe in the power of "going global," what about you? is a site that started out with my stories and grew into a platform for women all around the world to tell their travel tales of trials and triumph. We all believe that the more you see of the world, the better you can be as a person who inhabits it. Women encouraging other women to grow, travel, evolve- that's what SGG is all about. ---> Read my very first blog post (see "Archives" for August 2015) to learn how this all began.
