The hotel is a gorgeous old building a few mins walk from the main square in Cusco. Desk and hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our matrimonial room was on the 2nd floor, facing the street, so there were a few issues with street noise; mainly early morning cars and the seemingly ubiquitous all-night long bursts of fireworks (which...

A small budget hotel, which is clean and very friendly. Location is perfect (which also means bit noisy), staff genuinely friendly and fun to talk to. Breakfast bit simple but more than enough for me. Room was big and clean, hot water in abundance, heater for the cold night. Decent wifi (much better than expected). Loved the atmosphere and I...

Stayed at this hotel as part of a youth group performing humanitarian service in the Cusco area, so I did not expect a five-star hotel. No shampoo, hairdryers, or other appliances provided in the rooms, but they do give you a small bar of soap and a clean towel every day. Although the rooms do not have an irons, the... More

We stayed in a nice room with a balcony facing the street. The room was clean and the bathroom was small but nice. The hostal is in a great location and the staff was friendly. For the price, you can't go wrong.

We stayed for one week in September 2012. It was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They provided us with useful information on how to get around. We also wanted a car with driver to take us around the main sites in Cusco and it was arranged at an affordable price. Our room was cleaned everyday and the... More

I stayed one week in November (low season for tourism) and the price was really affordable in comparison with other places that were way too expensive. It has cable TV, phone in the room, wireless internet, breakfast included and free mate de coca. Enough for me!. And, quite important, just half a block from Plaza de Armas. Just I have... More

I stayed in Hostal Santa Maria for a week in Cusco for work. Upon checking in the staff was not very helpful or friendly. They eventually warmed up to me during the week. I had a single room in the internal part of the hotel. The room was HUGE with beautiful wood floors that were very creaky. The room contained... More

This is a basic but ok hotel. Don't expect much. Beds are comfortable. TVs in the rooms. Big, clean (but not modern) bathrooms. Two complaints: -Walls were thin. Heard someone's TV down the hall at 3am. To the hotels' credit, we called the front desk to tell him and heard him come up IMMEDIATELY to take care of it. Much... More
