This is part of a Peruvian chain of hotels (4 of them in Cusco) and it's by far the nicest of the four. We had a superior room on the first floor away from the reception area. Nevertheless, the room faced a patio that people who stay in the rooms on the 2nd floor needed to cross. There is no... More

Tierra Viva Cusco Saphi is a lovely hotel! We didn't realise quite how nice it was until we arrived as we had not been expecting so much when we booked. Our room was huge and very comfortable with a lovely bathroom. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was delicious. There is free coca tea and... More

This hotel has it all: wonderful, helpful, attentive staff; beautiful, comfortable rooms, wonderful breakfasts, great location, and excellent value. Can't recommend it enough. I stayed here for several nights and felt pampered and very comfortable. It's only 4 block from the central plaza, lots of restaurants and tourist attractions.

Cusco has a thousand hostels and small inns. The Tierra Viva C Saphi is more of a boutique hotel two blocks away from the crazy town square. It's quiet and nice. The breakfast is simple, clean, ample. I got the deluxe room. It was large and nice, clean, great bathroom. Unfortunately, the inn has no windows, but I don't know... More

We was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, considering the great price, the hotel had a high end feel. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and felt modern. The staff definitely make the hotel, all of which are extremely attentive, organising taxis, returning trekking equipment and generally just really friendly. The showers can sometimes be cold, but you only have to ask... More

There are four Tierra Viva hotels in Cusco, and this one is about 4 blocks uphill, heading west from the Plaza de Armas. It’s a very convenient place to use as your base for touring Cusco and the Sacred Valley, an easy walk to Qoricancha and the magnificent Cathedral. Our room was clean, modern, and minimalist, with all the things... More

A tremendously comfortable and quiet charming little hotel situated in a great part of Cusco. Definitely more comfortable than the 3 star rating suggests but it is the friendly staff and great service that sets this hotel apart. We had 3 nights stay over Christmas with one night separated by a 2 night stay in Machu Picchu and due to... More

I booked this hotel with the recommendation of my tour company. It was amazing. For $80 a night I had a huge, warm, and comfortable room with a glass shower and heated floors. Make sure you book directly from the hotel for the best rates. They were super easy to communicate with and I easily coordinated my airport pick up.... More
