We ended up at this hotel because the one we had reserved (Casa de Don Ignacio) messed up our reservation and we were transferred to Samay Hotel as a last minute plan. The staff was nice. The mattress was super hard, it was difficult to regulate the water for our shower as it kept getting very hot or very cold.... More

The hotel is clean and neet. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The water was hot and breakfast was good. The staff was AMAZING! !! They were very helpful, friendly and accomodating. This was our jump off point for touring the ruins in the area and Machu Picchu. Highly recommend to all.

The Hotel is not far from the Cuzco airport. The Lobby is nice. The breakfast is small but nice. Coffee, fruit, breads and eggs. The rooms are comfy in space and the showers have hot water. My complaint is the beds are very Hard, almost as hard as sleeping on a board of wood.

Stayed here for three nights while visiting the sacred valley. We arrived at night into Cusco. The hotel is right on the edge of old cusco across the street from the main tourist market. Short ride from airport. The staff is excellent. We sat in the lobby drinking fresh coca tea while they checked us in. It was a nice... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel for our honeymoon. We had a great time. The staff was friendly, attentive, and superbly professional. Specially Carlos, he went above and beyond when I got unexpectedly sick. The hotel had oxygen (for those of us who got affected by the height of Cusco). And Carlos stood by me and made sure I...

This hotel was located right in the center of Cuzco. It was very close to restaurants and shopping. The rooms were clean and so was the bathroom. I would describe it as quaint and carrying the minimum essentials for a night's stay. It did have a flat screen tv in the room. It did get noisy at night, you could... More

Would have been a higher star rating but it was very noisy. They served breakfast at 6 AM and we could hear them walking up and down the stairs as soon as they started bringing food up around 5 AM. The service was really good and the rooms clean and worth the price we paid. Excellent location was in walking... More

I loved the service provided by the hotel. I got there at 8 am and they had my room ready, everything was clean and people were really nice. Location is about 8 blocks from main square. Breakfast was good, a little poor if you are having breakfast later than 8:30, they have limited stock of things so if they run... More

The Samay Hotel in Cusco, Peru was located in an ideal location even though the building itself was somewhat dated. Some of the hallways were dark and some of the heaters did not work well. The food was good and plentiful and the staff was helpful and friendly.
