This is not a Hilton, but a very nice cozy hotel (although a bit squeaky) with a terrific friendly staff. Very close to Plaza de Armas, and clean rooms and bathrooms with hot water. Highly recommend!

We stayed in two different rooms in this hotel during our comings and goings through Cusco. Both times on the first floor. Because this is a rather 'rustic' hotel, you hear every footstep in the rooms upstairs. There is a LOT of creaking with every footstep. (Tough if you like to sleep in.) The water temperature in the showers is... More

This hotel had a pretty good location near the square and Cusco and also in the middle of San Blas. We had a mostly comfortable stay but there were a few issues. The first room we were in had a window facing a street and allowed in a ton of noise. We woke up several times that night. Fortunately the... More

The Orquidea Real is a lovely hotel in a good location. The staff were helpful and always nice. I was skeptical of what I would find once I got there because of the low price but the room was clean and of a good standard and the continental breakfast was also good. I would say the 2 star rating is... More

This isn't a Hilton, but if you're looking for a cozy, centrally located hotel that offers great, friendly service, this is a great place for you. We booked our tours through them as well. They were on time to pick us up from the airport and everyone was so organized and friendly. We felt very secure with the 24 hour... More

Booking the hotel was very easy through their online service. They were very prompt in answering questions I emailed them about the accomodations. We were met and picked up at the airport. We arrived with a fairly large group (8 people) and actually had one more guest than we initially had told them. Even though they were completely booked, they... More

The Reservation Service was prompt, safe and reliable. Orquidea Hostal accommodations were both rustic and charming. The room was clean and safe. The view of the city and closeness to the Plaza de Armas was excellent. The Hostal has a security staff that ensured a safe stay. They carried our luggage for us and arranged for taxis. The included breakfast... More

I was met at at the airport and taken to the Orquidea Real. The staff at the hotel was great, even sending out for food for me one night when I was too tired to go myself. The Orquidea Real has several surprises inside, the colonial building has original Inca walls and exposed wood beams, the rustic accommodations are simply... More

Musty smelling dumpy little hostel at the top of a very high stairway which is difficult to climb in the high altitude. The shower barely trickled water and the toilet smelled awful. Not a place to stay....
