My family of four (husband and two kids) stayed in the Balcony room at Second Home Cusco. Sparkling clean, fabulous breakfast, blessedly hot shower (had just come from the Amazon), thick down comforters and a room with history (Spanish colonial-beware the low doorways and creaky floors!) But MOST of all, the warmest, most accommodating host (Carlos) it will ever be... More

The Second Home Cusco is just that, a second home thanks to attentive host Carlos who makes you feel comfortable, provides advice when asked, cooks a healthy and plentiful breakfast and makes you feel welcomed. The hotel is on the hill above Plaza de Armes in San Blas and walking up the stairs at that altitude is not a joke.... More

Stayed here for 4 night in total in May, Carlos is extremely welcoming and makes you feel like you are home. He is always happy to help with anything you are after from direction to recommendations. He arranges pickup and drop off from the airport so there is no hassle getting here, driver was waiting for us at the airport... More

it's right there in the name - they make you feel at home. Great value, neighborhood, quiet, good breakfast, transport, helpful guide to the city - really everything you could want in a place to stay in Cusco.

It is more expensive than other B&Bs in Cusco, but we are glad we stayed there. Carlos and Vicky are perfect hosts, the house is very special, the rooms are large and comfort, breakfast is excellent, location is great. We loved it.

Our group stayed at Second Home during May 2015 and it was the most amazing place to rest up and prepare for our Inca Trail hike. We were picked up at the airport by a driver who was very kind. We then met Carlos who is a wonderful host and upon arriving at Second Home we instantly felt at home.... More

From the moment we entered Second Home, we felt comfortable and secure. It's exactly as you should feel when entering your accommodation and Carlos' generous welcome ensured it. Our room was as unique as it was comfortable and was well serviced. It had some quirky points though, including some low ceiling points and a strange screen that covered the skylight... More

Our inn-keeper, Carlos, was very attentive to our needs. Carlos had a driver patiently awaiting our arrival by bus in Cuzco, conveniently with a welcome sign bearing our name. The rooms were very clean, quiet, and very well laid out for my wife and I, and adult daughter. The beds were comfortable; the bathroom was spacious, modern, and clean, with... More

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Cusco. Carlos is the most gracious host. Like most visitors leaving early will be part or your Cusco itinerary but Carlos is so gracious and will always start your day with a lovely breakfast including fresh squeezed orange juice and limitless coffee no matter the time. Our group had all three rooms... More
