to be honest, La Samblena is a good place to stay. Ok, yes!.. its high up! but it's a nice way of "cheap" exercise!. Basically, the service was good since we got there, the owner helped us with our backpack, he gave us a nice "mate de coca" (tea) as a "welcome tea" (tradition). The room was nice, it's not... More

This hospedaje is located in a beautiful and safe neighborhood, excellent for people who appreciate art and enjoy walking to different shops and restaurants, all in walking distance. Moises and Zenaida, a young couple running this business, will make sure that you enjoy your time during your stay in Cusco. You will be treated like a friend, tours could be... More

I wanted to give it 3,5 stars. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Very good location (close to downtown but in a street without cars, which is a plus in Peru since Peruvians blow their horns nonstop, all day long, for no reason whatsoever). 2. Zenaida is very helpful and trustworthy. 3. Beds are ok. Rooms are clean.... More

Upon arrival, we were impressed by the service: Moises, the owner, came to fetch us from the Bus terminal - he was there already even though we arrived 45min before schedule - at 5am! He also paid the taxi for us. But there, the praise ends... The building is in a critical state (doors don't close properly, the balcony in... More

The Sambleña is a very nice place cause is the typical cusqueña colonial house, nicely decorated and located in the beautiful neighborhood of San Blas, just four blocks from Plaza de Armas, the best neighborhood of Cusco. Very clean rooms and the owners, a young native couple, are very friendly and helpful

Beautiful bedrooms, nice acommodations and good service! The location was very good, very close from Plaza de Armas and a set of nice restaurants. The rooms were clean and looked cozy, we shared a bathroom but it was not a big deal for us now that we were just passing by the city.

Casa La Samblena is a small hostel type hotel. They have private rooms with washroom and shared as well. There are no toiletries provided (shampoo, soap and such) so bring your own. My room was facing the back and had a queen bed, single bed and private washroom. The hostel is owned by a wonderful couple that make you feel... More

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We stayed here in November 2012 for five nights. Our room was clean and spacious. And the area/location is great. The hosts were friendly and very helpful. Especially with helping us book our trek to Machu Picchu which is very important because we ran into some guests who were not very happy with their... More
