We stayed here for three nights as part of a G Adeventures tour - lots of tour groups stay here. The room was basic, but quite clean. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay, the first one was a bit odd with no external window - the room opened into the atrium and was very noisy. The second... More

We experienced some very kind and helpful staff here. We ended up staying here longer than we planned and there was no issue with staying in the same room. There were a few phone calls to be made to change bookings and many taxis to get to explore cusco. The staff were always happy to help us out and there... More

If you're off to do the Inca Trail the next day i would request another room on another floor. Its such a... More

Let me preface this review by saying that I gave it 4/5 stars because this is not a luxury hotel. However, this hotel met all of our needs and really ended up being a lifesaver for my boyfriend and me when our evening flight out of Cusco was cancelled and we were stranded. The Prisma Hotel took us in at... More

We stayed here as apart of a tour. The first night was good and room was comfortable. We were on the second floor and wifi seemed to work just right. They stored our bags for five days and it was safe. On our return we had a room on the first floor near the lobby. Unfortunately the wifi did not... More

Wi-fi was virtually non-existent in room. There is some spotty wi-fi in the lobby. Rooms were loud - SO loud. There's always one car alarm going off somewhere. Or cars honking. Or people talking outside your room. The walls are paper thin. Bring ear plugs. The front desk staff was marginally helpful but friendly. The bathroom was really tiny and... More

We stayed at the Prisma on our way to and from Machu Picchu. It's located a short walk from the plaza, has free wifi, is clean and safe. Rooms bordering the street can be a little noisy. Breakfast was included in the price of our room, and was OK - not great. For our needs, this hotel worked just fine... More

We stayed at the Prima Hotel as part of our G Adventures Inca Trail tour. We stayed for two nights in total, one prior to our hike and one upon our return. Overall the hotel is clean and amenities are adequate. The location was good, we were able to walk to most places around town. Bed was comfortable and shower... More

I stayed here through G Adventures, like many other reviewers. I am not sure why everyone is hating on it! I thought it was a lovely hotel; consider your surroundings! Peru is not the cleanest area in the world, Cusco is interesting but I would not say it is the nicest to look at or walk around in. All that... More
