The Colonial House Inn is just that! Location was good, staff was friendly, rooms comfortable. Hot water shower was a little iffy as it was the funky electrical shower heads that are very unreliable. Rooms were clean. Staff was helpful and friendly.

Altogether we stayed 5 nights in the CHI. We enjoyed it very much. All the staff members are extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was ok (door window into the patio, bathroom rather small; but clean and quite spaceous). The breakfast is included in the room price and is served on the roof terrace with great views to the mountains... More

The Colonial House Inn is a traditional colonial building and it is very conveniently located near the attractions and the services. The rooms are large and clean but some renovation would not hurt. There is a TV in the rooms and a computer for guests in the lobby. The rooftop terrace where they serve breakfast offers a wonderful view of... More

The location was great. Very close to the main touristy areas and other attractions. The rooms definitely need a remodel, but it's a good step up from the hostel scene for a similar price. Avoid the rooms in the front, they are really loud. One of the rooms smelled really musty to me (carpet plus rainy season) and I switched.... More

Stayed two nights in November. The room was large with clean bathroom and hot shower, 3 beds to choose from (double and single), table, plenty of space for our baggage. Lovely atrium with loads of plants and birds, nice breakfast in shade on the roof - with such an amazing view of El Misti and the town. The staff very... More

This place is charming and it's a pretty good value given the central location but there are far better places in any direction. First problem is that it is right on one of the busiest streets- full of taxi, car and combi traffic at all hours. The noise is a real issue. As is the pollution-- unlike other hostels on... More

This quirky hotel built into a historic building right in the heart of Cuzco was a nice place to stay on a budget. If you are looking for luxury, do not stay here. The rooms are huge but very basic. We stayed in two different rooms. They were somewhat dark and shabby, but fine with us because we were just... More

Pro: staff was nice and helpful, breakfast on the roof terrace offers a nice view of El Misti volcano, walking distance to the city centre, free (but slow) internet access. Con: the place needs some renovation - dark entrance area, rooms are quite shabby with electrical showers only. Don't take a room that faces the street - lots of traffic... More

We stayed at the Colonial House Inn after reading the reviews on this website. I believe the Inn has changed hands lately, as it is no longer family run. The Inn rooms were shabby and not extremely clean. We stayed in two different rooms, one with a shower head with exposed wires. The bathroom wasn´t cleaned daily and the water... More

This place is symbolic of Peru. Old, faded, with a certain charm, but in dire need of remodeling. Our room had a French door that opened on a pretty patio, and that was enough to conquer me. Having breakfast on the terrace, with a view of the city roofs and old Misty looming in the background was even better. And... More
