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

Loved the hotel, our room had a loft - nice with three people. Beautiful, comfortable courtyard. Very little English spoken, but were able to communicate. Had to walk up hill on a very narrow road, but wasn't an issue as there were very few vehicles.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. However, the floors and walls are thin and you can hear a lot of noise from the other rooms. Also, some rooms have an open roofwindow without curtains; if you expect a morning to sleep-in this is not possible. They were very helpful to make a gluten-free breakfast for one of us... More
