We stayed here before and after our Inca Trail with Gap Adventures and the hotel was fine, we werent expecting 5* luxury but what you do get is cleanliness, comfort and friendlines all the essentials really. The hotel doesnt have a lift, so that can pose somewhat of a problem especially with the change in altitude and being shattered but... More

We stayed here twice while traveling on an arranged tour with G Adventures (formerly GAP adventures). Our first night was when we arrived in Cusco, prior to our Lares Trek, and then the second night was several days later after our Lares Trek. Our first impression of the place was favorable, friendly desk staff, fluent in English. Helpful doormen unloaded... More

Hotel was ok - it was part of a package pre-Inca Trail with Gap Adventures, I expect it probably costs c.$50 per night. Our first room smelled a bit damp and breakfast was not fantastic, but ok for the money. We stayed for the nights we had paid for but moved elsewhere (Rumi Punku Hotel) for a more luxurious recovery... More

Location was about a 20 minute walk from main square. Rooms were clean and basic. Good hot shower and rooms a good size. No elevator so being on top floor was a bit of a challenge! We did get a good wifi signal up there though. Breakfast was included and was ok - eggs, bread, cereal, coffee & juice etc.... More

We stayed here as part of the Gap adventure tour. Prisma is conveniently located within walking distance to the town square. It is a few blocks away from restaurants (both local and for expats) and supermarkets/little stores. The staff is friendly and helpful. They provide free wi-fi and a computer for guest use. The walls are thin and you can... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of a gadventures tour. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and everyone that I spoke to was able to speak English and understand my very poorly spoken Spanish. The rooms were clean and we always had hot water. The bathroom vented into the hall, so we got a bit of... More

Don't stay here if you are expecting a five star property. It is one of the standard hotels used by GAP. It was fine. Very central and safe. Helpful staff. Breakfast was good The WiFi worked and the rooms were clean. Who is going to stay in their rooms when you can wander around the beautiful city of Cusco.

Pros: clean, Wifi in the room, staff are helpful. You can leave luggage in storage Short walk to the plaza. Near a store for cheaper water and snacks. Cons: no elevator, so if you're on the 3rd floor up, the altitude makes climbing the stairs so hard it leaves us out of breath each trip. - a bit noisy since... More

After reading some peoples reviews on here I was already in the mind set that it was going to be a complete dive before I got there and I was thinking that I would have to get another hotel. But I was surprised. We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a GAP trip on the Inca Trail. Perfectly... More
