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

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
