Two of us went to this hostel as a place to sleep before and after a 5 day hiking trip. I'll start by saying that Carmen was really nice. However, the experience wasn't. * Couldn't find the place because there was no signage * The door bell is a bit hidden and rings for every room to hear * No... More

Stayed for 7 days in May 2015 and during that time we learned that this ''hotel'' has got a few nice rooms but we weren't located in any one of them. Been promised a double bed room just find out that it was given to someone else after I arrived. Constant shortages of hot water and no communication between staff... More

Dear Sir: for us it was very nice to receive you in our house in Cusco. We are very sorry that your impression is so different from the opinions of other guests. As you say , we offer breakfast eggs, fruit, milk , homemade jams, with a nice view, served by Carmen who is a very sweet lady. The house... More

We stayed here before and after the machu picchu trek. The first 2 nights we stayed in a room under the kitchen, which is also next to the telephone and the doorbell. We did not like this room at all! Too much noise and daylight (surrounded by thin glass windows). We saw other rooms and decided to come back to... More

I very much felt like home while I was in Peru here. The room was a nice size and beautiful view and was a short walk to the main plaza and lots of good places to eat. The breakfast was good when I had it and the housekeeper was great, and the owner wonderful. And the small kitchen was a... More

This hotel makes you feel at home. Carmen, the housekeeper, is like an aunt, she really cares for the guests and prepares a delicious breakfast at a kitchen/cafeteria with a panoramic view of Cusco. The rooms are named after the signs of the Zodiac, and we stayed at Virgo, not the best one, but nonetheless awesome! It has a kitchen... More

We had a very nice stay in the quirky Casa de Mama, perfectly located on the edge of the cool San Blas district, but still just a hop to the main plaza. The rooms are comfortable (if a little dated) and the kitchenette was a welcome addition. The best feature was the lovely service and very nice breakfast in the... More

The location of this hotel is fabulous, as is the service. Easy walk to all tourist destinations. First we worked with Mercedes for the booking and airport pick-up arrangements and she was very attentive and accommodating to our needs. Upon arrival at the hotel, Carmen was there for our every request. We stayed for over a week, and took two... More

My family and I enjoyed staying at Casa de Mama Cusco. Spacious and cozy. Mercedes was an excellent host. She replied to my emails very quickly and was very flexible as we had to modify our booking dates. She made all the arrangements for airport pickup and tours and was very helpful in making suggestions for restaurants, where to go.... More

The location of the hotel is firstly ideal near Plaza de Armas and many little streets with shops and restaurants. The staff were wonderfully helpful and attentive and the room was quiet and had everything that we needed. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Very colourfully decorated rooms, fairly large for what we expected. The service from Carmen was excellent. She was very friendly and helpful and although there was a language barrier we were usually able to communicate. The rooms are not heated or air conditioned, but they do have heaters that are helpful, and you probably won't get hot enough to need... More
