The hostel was very welcoming, we arrived late and they kindly recommended how we prevent altitude sickness from setting in which we appreciated. Located only a short walking distance from the main plaza, close to everything you need. The room was lovely, ample size with great hot shower. Very clean with new towels daily. They look after your luggage in... More

Seven of us stayed here for two nights. Great value and location. The staff were exceptionally responsive and helpful particularly due to our very late arrival. If you can ask for a room on the main floor. That way you can enjoy original inca walls as part of your decor

We stayed a total of 8 nights here and it was very enjoyable. The rooms had fireplaces in case in became cold at night. The hotel is located on a pedestrian side street a few hundred meters from the plaza and the breakfast while simple was enough to get started for the day. The staff was beyond helpful during our...

Room and Breakfast were satisfactory (we liked the eating area). Staff was not that friendly and I really wouldn't say you get the value for your money. The worst was the 8:30 am check out. To get showered, packed and ready + breakfast you basically have to get up at 6:30-7:00. Who wants to do that on vacation!?!

My wife and I stayed at Orquidea Real before and after doing the Salkantay Trek. Our stay was wonderful. The bed was comfortable, there was always hot water, good breakfast, and the staff was very helpful. They picked us up at the airport and arranged a taxi for us to the bus station when we left. The staff was very... More

I had my bag lost in Miami on my way down to Lima. We had a very short layover in Lima (where I needed to get my bag) so I ended up flying to Cusco without my backpack and luggage. TIP: have some spanish handy because the customer service for LAN Airlines does not speak much English. THANKFULLY for our... More

The Orquidea Real Hostal met my expectations and then some. They employees were very welcoming and accommodating to all our needs. As soon as we arrived they brought us hot tea and a space heater because we mentioned we were cold. The room was very clean and provided the perfect place to stay around our Inca Trail trek. They also... More

Great place to stay. We were there before and after our trip to Machu Picchu. They kept our luggage for us. Close enough to the main plaza, a few minute walk, and yet far enough away to be quiet at night. Very clean, nice views of the city. Staff friendly and helpful. Good not water in the shower.
