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

We splurged for the suite, a huge room with a balcony overlooking the Plaza de Armas. It was awesome to sit out there with a water or beer and watch people. On Sundays, they have a big military / civic demonstration / march. And there are always lots of tourists and locals walking around. I don't know the extent of... More

In the middle of the Plaza d'Armas in Cuzco facing the Basilica, that is the only positive comment I will make about this hotel. The staff barely speaks English, not good when most of your business is with tourists. The rooms were renovated in the 70s, noisy, small and uncomfortable! The rug on the main stairway look like it was... More

Highly recommend this boutique hostel if you are going to Cusco. Location, price and service were very excellent. Location: is right in the Plaza de Armas. Since we got there the hosts Reynaldo and Darwin were very accommodating. It felt like home and I will definitely go back!

This hotel is convenient and affordable. Central to everything. Comfortable beds, and helpful staff. Pretty good for the price or around $81US a night for two people. Breakfast is good, with a reasonable amount of variety

This place is in the center of it all! Could not have a better location in Cusco if you tried! the hotel itself is more like a 3 star place not so much a boutique hotel. the bathrooms are a bit outdated, and the rooms are just ok. The staff is ok, didn't feel them going out of their way.... More

Great location/good value for money. The staff was very nice and helpful. Specially Darwin Jimenez that not only had multi language skills, he made a good effort to speak Portuguese . Also kindly did my online check in for my flight on the day after, as the internet went down at the time , and he did it for me... More

Great location on the Plaza de Armas with various shops and restaurants within a stone's throw. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was adequate. Mattresses a touch hard. We stayed two separate times with a visit to Machu Pichu in between. On first visit they provided bottles of water, nice. But on second stay they did not which seems just... More
