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

I don't often write reviews...this is an exception because the location...the hotel staff....the value is just perfect. The hotel is in the San Blas area toward the bottom of calle carmen bajo. It is off the main tourist and buisiness sections and yet close enough to walk to Plasa de Armas...the main square...and lots of art shops...good restaurantsand many quaint... More

For the room itself, it is more like a hotel rather then hostel in Peru. Rather clean and comfortable. The shower is strong and hot water is adequate. Breakfast is complimentary. Not sumptuous but enough to start the day with a good mood. Only downside: The soundproofing isn't well installed. There is a courtyard in the middle of hotel, while... More
