Our stay in this hotel has been very pleasant. We stayed two times 2 days ( before and after visiting Machu Pichu. The location in the relaxed part of Cusco, San Blas, is very good. Our luggage during the Machu Pichu visit could stay in the hotel. Staff collected it from our room so that we did not have to... More

We stayed here 4 nights. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff was always friendly and accommodating to our requests. We stayed on the third floor that is the most quiet part of the hotel - all rooms (except for the third floor) look into the central patio where people gather for tea or with their tour guides....

We stayed for 6 nights in June/July and over all were not impressed. The rooms were ok but very cold, the free breakfast was not that good and the exact same every day. The worst part was the guy at the front desk was very dishonest and ordered us the most dangerous/over priced taxi ever. We watched the taxi driver... More

Location is great - only a few blocks from plaza d'Armas. It's fairly clean and staff were very pleasant to deal with. On a busy street with lots of honking; walls and floors seem very thin. Ask for a room away from street. Hot water was an issue most of the time - we stayed 4 nights.. most of the... More

Hostal is very nice, close to the maistreets, goog neighborhood. But, our shower hasn't been cleaned up for 4 days. the hairs of the previous guests were still there... And ours on top of it. Day and night you hear people talking, phones ringing and all the noises of the street. Breakfast is ok. People at the frontdesk are very... More

Decent hotel, nice rooms, okay breakfast. Location is very nice and also design is nice. In the colder months, rooms are also very cold. Our shower cabin was also leaking making quite a wet mess. Overall a good choice due to the location and nice design.

We stayed at the Apu Huascaran for over two weeks as we explored Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Great rooms, clean and very comfortable, and we really enjoyed the location (San Blas). Great staff, very helpful and friendly. (Tip: Fantastic cafe restaurant called 'The Meeting Place' in the San Blas Plaza & another one, just on top of the San... More

I stayed here for a few nights last November, Part of the reason for the noise, I assume that I was given a room just above the kitchen, and without any insulation between the two rooms, meant that I was waking up when kitchen staff punched in to prepare breakfast, and blending juice. Breakfast was very simpel, with basic foods... More

Very helpful staff. The rooms were very nice and comfortable with a lovely courtyard to sit in for internet. Internet in our room wasn't the best. Breakfast was adequate eggs made how you like them. A bit of a hike up and down the many stairs to get to the main square but we liked and needed the exercise; many... More

By far one of the cleaner places I stayed while in Peru. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fairly basic but similar to what is found elsewhere in the area so not unexpected. The indoor courtyard area is a great place to eat breakfast or share a bottle of wine in the evening! The location of... More
