Firstly an apology to the owners for not writing this earlier. Myself and my wife stayed here in November last year. What a delightful place! Very few hotels of this (small) size can be so welcoming and atmospheric. All the staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and they arranged a super trip to Colca Canyon for us. Breakfast is... More

We agree with everything positive that has been said about this hotel, but we want to emphasize how amazingly comfortable, cozy and clean it was, and how friendly, affable and helpful the staff was. They were so nice that it felt like we were friends. We want to also address some of the criticism this hotel has gotten regarding its... More

Wow. I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Posada Nueva Espana. Our bus came in at 6am from Cusco and when we arrived at the Posada the grandfather was just coming in with a newspaper. He welcomed us and gave us a room right away and told us to rest and that we could have tea and... More

We stayed here before and after our trip to the Colca Canyon. We had a room in the original part of the house. Perfect! Clean, quiet and very safe. Super location--nice walk into the main square. A 3 minute walk to a great supermarket with lots of ready made food. The owners made sure all our needs were met. Arranged... More

I liked being here so much I extended my stay by four nights. From the moment I arrived Grandfather Antonio reminded me that their guests were friends and not strangers - and that's exactly how it was. So much so that he would give me daily coaching on my Spanish, and advice on books to help. My room was cleaned... More

Don't be fooled by the surrounding neighbourhood. This hotel is charming, the owner very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast delicious up on the outdoor patio. Free wifi, cable TV, and hot showers.

We got a warm welcome and a lot of information about the city from the staff. We could use their facilities, like kitchen and luggage storage. The room was clean, enough space and it had a nice hot shower. The beautiful terrace with delicious breakfast in the sun was the best! A place to recommend!

A charming hotel in a nice area of the town, located near by the center, which I found very pleasant, as it is a quite and peaceful place, like a oasis where you can have a good rest. The plaza de armas is only about a five minutes walk away. The owners are very friendly and helpful with everything. The... More

The website Booking says the hotel is about 500m from the Plaza de Armas, that's not true, it's about 1km and some meters, just check on Google Maps. If I knew it, I would have looked for a hotel closer to the Plaza. Positive points: Clean rooms Lovely staff Good breakfast Negative points: It's not so close to the Plaza... More
