Loved this little hotel! Its worth the hike up the steps!! Convenient to Plaza de Armas and San Blas. They have a very friendly and attentive staff that speak English. The rooms are very clean and have fluffy down comforters and heaters. Hot, powerful shower (perfect post-Inca trail!). Adorable little breakfast room, eggs and bread every morning. Hot tea and...

We stayed in this hotel for over a week when we lost our Visa and had to wait until a new one arrived. After some of the hotels we stayed in through South America we were happy to wait in such a friendly, comfortable place. The staff are all very friendly and speak excellent English. The breakfasts were good, the... More

A travelling group of 8 we were, all of us from different upbringings, etc different outlooks on life and expectations. However, during our 5 weeks of travelling, ALL of us agree on one thing. this place was by far the best place we have stayed. Granted there are a few steps to get up, and being in high altitude (and... More

Small Boutique Hotel in Cusco City Peru. Hard to find hotel. Beware this hotel is not on a road, but situated on a stairwell between two streets in San Blas. The easiest way to find this hotel is to go to the J W Marriott Hotel look to the right, follow the street until you get to a set of... More

I found this place through the recommendation of a friend. Wonderful little inn with charm. Friendly staff. Free airport pick up! My room was great, not your cookie cutter hotel room. Breakfast was perfect and served in a room overlooking the mountains. Fresh squeezed OJ and fresh made blueberry jam. EXCELLENT value!!!

I stayed here with my partner and two friends on our month long trip through Peru. This by far stood out as the most memorable of places we stayed at. The architecture of the hotel is really different and If you are expecting your normal mini fridge and flat screen style hotel look elsewhere. If you are looking to immerse... More

We stayed here for two nights after we went to Machu Picchu. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast filling, and rooms massive. This is a great value for the cost ($55). It was very easy to walk to all the intown historical sites and great restaurants. The room itself is a little dated but it was clean and very... More

We spent a total of four nights here and were very content. Loved the beamed ceilings, tile floors, and rustic charm of the rooms. They were attractive and clean, and the electric heaters warmed things up enough to keep us comfortable in the chilly Cusco winter. We also appreciated the extra blankets in the dresser, the hot showers, and the... More

We stayed at this property, a good property with Very Poor Customer Service. Checked in late at 10:00 pm. After check in asked the girl at the front desk what time was the check out and she said 8:00 am, so I requested if it is possible to check out later. She said No, but later agreed for 9am, and...
