A day after arriving, I had an accident in Cusco and required a day at a local clinic. Upon my return to Posada Atahualpa, one of the family who run it brought me a large breakfast to my room as I had had little to eat in the clinic. Breakfast needs to be improved:horrible coffee, nasty UHT milk, but they... More

Stayed as part of a tour. A comfortable hotel with nice sized rooms but the hot water for the shower was not reliable ! Wifi a bit patchy. Did not eat in the hotel as neither breakfast or dinner were included, better options available elsewhere. A bit of hike to the plaza de Armas, maybe 20 mins, but plenty of... More

It's my first time in Cusco and I must say it has been an amazing experience! The hotel is clean and not far from the city Plaza de Armas. The walk is about 10 to 15 mins and by taxi it´s about 5 mins. The staff here is very pleasant and helpful. I was only here for 2 nights but... More

Were they paid off to pretend this place was better than it was? I'm thoroughly confused. Assuming my wife and I are unnaturally harsh critics, this place might be a point higher than we recognize - but under no reasonable circumstances is this a 5-point hotel. Allow me to describe. The floorboards were warped and creaked. The sheets on the... More

Really pleasent and helpful staff. There is hot water 24/7 and the rooms/bathrooms are clean, beds comfortable. For the price its an excellent place to rest and have a good night sleep. The distance is 15min walking from the center, with the taxi is 5min and they will charge you 3,4 soles.

I arrived late at night to this hotel and the staff was very accommodating. Ibette at the front desk was most helpful with the internet and any questions I had. She speaks very good english and when we got stuck we google translated. The room was on the second floor with an interior courtyard view. It was very clean and... More

La Posada was our home in Cuzco for severals days as we explored Cuzco, Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. The staff was extraordinary and constantly sought our comfort and the provided breakfast was a great start to the day. They allowed us to keep our belongings in our room while we spent a day up in Aguas Calientes and when... More

Great neighborhood, internet available, sparkling bathrooms and lots of towels, heater to keep us comfy against the winter chill, residential location with a few shops and restaurants nearby. Highly recommend.
