I stayed at this hotel for a total of four nights, before and after completing the Inca Trail. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. It is very well located in a nice little square, just a few minutes' walk from Plaza de Armas, markets and many bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The staff were attentive and helpful, and the breakfast was... More

We stayed at this hostel as part of a Tucan travel tour of Peru for 3 nights. Cuzco is an amazing city and the hostel provides a great base for exploring it. The rooms are nothing too fancy but are spacious, clean and comfortable (some also had great views across the city). The hostel has a nice communal seating area... More

I spent 4 nights here with a Tucan tour group, in two different rooms. The first room was huge with three single beds. The shower was hot and strong. The room had a heater which struggled to heat the large room but the alpaca blankets made up for it. It's not posh or ornate but it's clean and comfortable. The... More

Great location, but everything else is poor about this hotel. Rooms are very small and noisy, beds are uncomfortable, service is average. Reception staff will say one thing but will deliver something else - for example, the laundry service. We also stayed at Cuzco Plaza II and this is much better on all counts.

It's an alright hotel for the price, but my room was right above the breakfast room and there were some very early, very noisy risers. Hotel does have computer for guest use, and location is convenient, and my room was big enough and clean - others in party had smaller, darker rooms so if you get one of these, ask... More

Cusco Plaza I is an amazing hotel that everyone should stay at while they visit the town. Just minutes from the main town center, the location offers ample food, shopping, and drinking options for any age group. There are tons of travel agencies right by the hotel which is perfect for visitors to explore the town and the Sacred Valley.... More

Cusco Plaza I is a great hotel, I've stayed there many times! The location is perfect, only a few blocks from the main square, the staff is friendly and make you feel like home. I think It is best value you can get for your money in Cusco.

This hostel is in a great location and I love this particular one because of the friendly staff. They're very helpful when it comes with directions and knowledgeable of the different touristic spots. The breakfast is really good and healthy. I've been here several times and my rooms have always been very clean. I will be definitely coming back here... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of a tucan adventure holiday. Although basic, it is clean and in a lovely location. There is a fabulous bakery if you turn right and right again a few yards down the street on the left. Gorgeous prosciutto and cheese baguettes :) Breakfast is good value at 10 soles -... More

This is a nice little hotel in the center of the touristy side of Cusco. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little spartan, but definitely clean and comfortable. They have free wifi, though it may be a bit slow at times. The breakfast is pretty basic, you're probably better off going around the corner to... More
