Mama Sara is a lovely clean hotel, staff are friendly & nice clean rooms. The beds maybe on the firm side & maybe you do have to run the water for awhile before it becomes hot, but hey you're on holiday. It is only a short walk into the interesting parts of Cusco, restaurants, historical buildings etc.....

Arranged by our tour operator but very disappointing hotel of our whole trip we were in Peru travelling around for 10 days. Bedrooms clean but bed mattresses were very firm. Shower had to be run at least 5 minutes to get hot water through, bathrooms are tired and need upgrading. Sort of British Premier Inn class but a bit lower... More

This accommodation was organised by our tour operator & I couldn't have been happier. Our room was on the ground floor. The staff were friendly & willing to help in any way. There was an initial problem with hot water but it was available any other time we tried for it. There is no restaurant on site but it is... More

This hotel is a short walk into the interesting parts of Cusco. We stayed there three nights and albeit the hotel was very clean and provided us a warm welcome with coca leaf tea, there were some disappointing aspects to our stay: - our room (201) was noisy due to the road, and a twin share. When my husband and... More

Near the Plaza de Los Armes and important sites, but not crazy expensive. Comfortable rooms, ok breakfast. When we left to go to Machu Picchu, hotel staff let us leave most of our luggage in the room, which they moved to storage while awaiting our return--and luggage in the new room when we returned. Couldn't ask for better service or... More

It's close enough to the plaza de Armas to go walking, and distant enough to be quiet in the night. We had to ask for hot water sometimes, and only ones it was barely tepid. Rooms are comfortable, and the staff is friendly.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a tour and by far the nicest place on the tour itself. This hotel is tastefully decorated and about a 10 minute walk (hardly uphill) from the plaza del armas...far enough away you don't get annoying people walking by. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options and lots of fresh fruit...yummy! Our... More

Hotel is very clean and staff was great. They really went out of their way to be of service. Location is a little bit out of the way but what I got in return was worth it. Breakfast buffet is good. They stowed my bag while I did the Inca Trail. When I returned they met me with a smile... More

Mama Sara is a lovely hotel. The buffet breakfast was nice, and the staff were very helpful. It's about a 5min walk from the Plaza de Armas (main square) which means it's very quiet. The beds were super comfortable with very soft sheets. There's also free wifi and a computer for guests to use.
