The good: a Location b Front office staff held a bag for us that was delivered to the hotel prior to arrival. They were quite friendly. c the poor quality of the hotel room forced us to spend more time in the city itself. which is a good thing. The "not so bad" a breakfast was ok The bad. a... More

I can't rave enough about this hotel. Although it has hostal in the title is actually a hotel and a very good one at that. We had a suite room with a balcony overlooking the main square. It is near all the tour operators and restaurants and shops. Taxis are everywhere and policia in abundance for extra feeling of security.... More

Rating this hotel is difficult because I don't have many other Peruvian hotels to compare it to, and I feel it is unfair to compare it to hotels in the U.S. The location can't be beat, right on the Plaza de Armes. We had a triple room, which we assumed would be 3 single beds but was actually a double... More

The staff is just okay. The rooms are not very comfortable and there's no hot water in the morning. The electric outlets were all broken, it was hard to charge my phone. Therefore I think it's overpriced, and i don't recommend staying there but rather in other hotels in Cusco, for the same price.

The location is superior - best you can think of, second to none! The 2 bed room was just fine and breakfast was okay. However, when visiting a place like Cusco, location should be your first priority and therefore, I would recommend on this hotel

I selected the El Virrey Boutique Hostel during a month of festivals that closed down the access to the historic Plaza de Armas to all traffic (including taxis). I arrived with lots of heavy luggage and thought I would have to hire porters to get me into the Plaza and the hotel, but I was able to get to the... More

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
