The location is simply perfect. And the workers are really really nice. They take care of everything. They plan your visit to Cuzsco or Macchu Pichu. No worries, really. A good place to stay at! I definitely suggest it

Stayed in one of the suites, with a balcony, overlooking the Plaza De Armas. Great location and great people watching opportunities. The room was a reasonable size and had all that was required in it. The hotel was let down by the breakfast and the poor quality of the staff. On a couple of occasions we came down to breakfast...

OVER PRICED AND NO WORTH IT! We paid an extra $US50 for a room advertised with bath. They did not have a bath (false advertising) and the staff refused to help (RUDE!). They tried to charge us AGAIN for a bath. There was no food left at breakfast despite getting there 1.5 hours before the end of breakfast time. Hot... More

The hotel rooms are very small and we never had a window to look out of and the rooom was very noisy at night- people ringing the door bell late at night and you can hear people talking from the lounge downstairs.Would not stay here again and also did not enjoy Cusco - very touristy.

We stayed here for 1 night and thankful we did as didn't enjoy it. The room was smelly (especially the bathroom which smelt of sewage). Rooms were very basic and small. Breakfast was ok.....better than we had experienced in other places. Location was right on the square which is great but guess it could be noisy in some rooms if... More

The two rooms (suites) overlooking the Plaza have fantastic views and are large, however decor is very tired and cleanliness is not the best. The plaza can be very noisy at night! Breakfast was good. Unfortunately we had a problem with the hotel administration … I have Peruvian and Australian citizenship and have been living in Australia for the last... More

This was the second hotel we stayed at in Cusco. The location can't be beat, right on Plaza de Armas. It had clean rooms, provided two bottled waters, and toiletries. They had a good a breakfast and also offered coca tea in the lobby. They also bagged our breakfast when we had an early flight departure. The receptionists were very... More

I booked a suite through TA and Expedia, so I got it for a reduced price and it was well worth it. It consisted of the bed area which was near the window, so I could see the church when lying in bed. An area with a couch and an arm chair and a large bathroom. The room overlooked the... More

El Virrey is noted for its location on the largest square in the historic center. It is very safe and easy to sightsee from. I had a basic no frills room with small private bath that is modernized. The plug in heater does the job of heating up the small room I was in on the second floor, at the... More
