I was on my way to Machu Picchu and this was one of the hotels where I stayed arranged by Journeyou. It's a hotel that I wouldn't have chosen for myself. It's not located surrounding the Main Plaza but it is several blocks away from the Plaza. It is located right in the heart of the local community so if... More

Couldn't wait to get back to the hotel after finishing the inca tour (through g-adventures: also excellent). Showers were amazingly hot Spacious, comfy rooms Friendly, helpful staff Great breakfast and all day food Great location Prisma- Would be even better if there was a kettle and hairdryer in the room.

Stayed here as part of our Inca trail tour with G adventure. Friendly staff and a decent(ish) breakfast are highlights. Noisy at night and cold. Staff forgot to inform us of our briefing for the trail which we missed. Ask on arrival about this. Wifi isn't great in the rooms. Has a decent location for proximity to main square. Probably...

Hotel Prisma is located a short walk from the main square. The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. There is good wifi and the included breakfast is very basic, but will fill you up. You can pay a small amount and they will cook eggs for you. There is a some traffic noise, but... More

A clean and comfortable property with helpful staff and clean rooms in the heart of Cusco. The breakfast was ample with some Peruvian selections and continental fare. Some of the rooms do not have windows to the outside, instead they look out onto a hallway or inner courtyard which was a good or bad thing. We stayed here twice and... More

Prisma hotel has a good location in Cusco. However it's very noisy and as such, sleeping is difficult. The walls are paper thin and it's like sleeping in the middle of the street. The wifi is good, which is always nice, and the free breakfast is enjoyable as well. Be aware that there's a cost for eggs at breakfast, which... More

Stayed at Prisma as part of a tour for Inca Trail. Probably wouldn't have chosen it myself, but it was included in the tour. Its OK, a bit dated and breakfast isn't up to much. It is a good location, the staff are very good and friendly and the price is good. If they redecorated and had better breakfasts it... More

Prisma Hotel in Cusco is a nice hotel with clean facilities and friendly staff. A flat-screen TV with cable is provided in the room. The hotel also has wifi that is strongest in the lobby but also reaches some of the rooms. The Prisma hotel is about 5 blocks from the main Plaza, La Plaza de Armas, and closer to... More

We had 3 nights here, as part of a 9 day tour. The staff were friendly and helpful.. We both had altitude sickness, so missed breakfast the first day. The breakfast was typical for Peru. The hotel is located an easy walk to the main plaza, shops and restaurants. We had trouble getting hot water for showers, which I had... More
