Our INN is the place to be. Your Hosts at Samana INN & Spa are Juan Manuel Leon and Louise Hodgson. We are a Peruvian/English family here in Cusco, we will help you to get around town giving you the best tips and good recommendations to make you fell like you are home away from home. We are located at Tecsecocha 536, in down town only 2 blocks away from the main square of Cusco, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance to all the major landmarks of the city also really close to the best restaurants, shops, travel agencies, coffee shops, and more. From our team at Samana Spa and Salon we are looking forward to your visit. Sincerely Juan Manuel Leon and Louise Hodgson

The Samana Inn is authentic and allows your stay to be more memorable. I stayed in the top floor room which is a must for the views alone, you can walk out on to the terrace and relax with abook or use the spa facilities which are all reasonable prices. Drinks are delivered to your room and Juan is wonderful... More

Samana Inn was a great place to stage out of for Machu Picchu and relax afterwards! Cusco can become a tourist trap pretty quickly, so it was refreshing to have Samana Inn to make Cusco feel like home for a couple days. Juan and his wife have created a welcoming and accommodating environment. They both were great for recommendations of... More

The Samana Inn is wonderful!! It's the most authentic Inca experience in Cusco and the top floor rooms have amazing views. There's a lovely roof terrace, sauna and spa where you can relax before/after Machu Picchu, a day spent wandering around San Blas or exploring the Sacred Valley Inca sites. The Inn is very close to the main square in... More

We booked a package deal that included a mani-pedi and massage. The massage was wonderful and reasonably priced, perfect for post-hiking. But skip the mani pedi. That was awful. First off, the spa is in a beautiful stone building, but that means its freezing - I shivvered through the mani pedi! And no hot water soak for the feet, like... More

I stay at Samana Inn before and after my trek to Machupicchu. My room was beautiful and the view was my favorite part! I have stay in other hotels while visiting Peru and I have to say this is my favorite. Really close to every thing just 5 min walk to the main square. Where you can find everything you... More

Four friends and I stayed at Samana before and after trekking the Inca Trail. We could not have asked for a better experience! We were greeted by Lourdes (Juanmanuel and his wife were out of the country) who took the greatest care for us: always ready with coca tea, suggestions on where to go/explore, or just to chat. She even... More

Decided to try this 'upscale' place on 28th December after the inca trail. Paid (for Peru) an expensive price for the 'jet lag relief package' which included two types of sauna, jacuzzi and massage. It was advertised as deep tissue or Swedish massage, but we weren't given an option. Massage was terrible -more like rubbing oil into our backs with... More
