I'll have some negative things to say BUT, we still really liked this hotel. This is an excellent example of adaptive re-use of what was once the living quarters for the Salesiano brothers who ran the high school immediately adjacent to the hotel. The rooms have very high ceilings, beautifully appointed tile bathrooms, the original wood floors, expansive views of... More

We stayed one night here on our way between Choquequirao and Ollantaytambo. The staff were very helpful and accommodating (especially when we had a false early morning start and ended up kicking around in the lobby for a few hours). The breakfast they provided at 4am was perfectly adequate. Agree with another reviewer about the annoying barking dog nearby, and... More

The Don Bosco hotel was a really great find in Cusco, the location (although meaning a steep climb up the hill) is well worth it for the view. Rooms are massive and clean, breakfast is plentiful, but best of all, the staff are amazingly helpful, friendly and always have a smile. Highly recommended at a very affordable price.

Initially planned a two night stay and ended up staying five. When our Inca trail excursion collapsed, Bosco was there when we had no where to go. Altitude sickness, Bosco was there with an oxygen tank and coca tea to revive us. What an incredible staff lead by Cindy at the concierge- whatever we needed, they were there hand and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here 5 nights before and after our Machu Picchu hike. The staff was amazing and the hotel is beautiful but it has a few problems. First of all it's part of a private boys school and almost every night there was some kind of function involving lots of noise. And morning activities start early there... More

Due to a religious procession (don't come in Holy Week) the twon centre was closed off. No taxis (we, and several others tried about 30 between us) would take us on the lengthy detour. The hotel told us it was one block's walk - it was actually 1.2Km UPHILL. Killing - with bags at altitude. We were very grumpy and... More

We stayed at Don Bosco Hotel for three nights on our trip to Cuzco and Machu Picchu. Originally a part of the adjacent school, the rooms appear to be former classrooms converted into sleeping rooms.
