This hostal is located in a colonial style decorated building with furniture and paintings from the colonial era, but with modern day amenities - warm showers, WiFi, and comfy beds. It was relatively quiet set back off the street, unless you had a room at the back of the building which backed up to a restaurant/bar. One night of my... More

Good location, 5 mins walk to the plaza. Very secure. Quiet. Comfortable room with cable and wifi, lots hot water! Small garden to enjoy the sun. We had specified room with fireplace which was great! Breakfast included in price was very good - obviously improved since last reviews: self serve fruit changed daily,yogurt, muesli, freshly squeezed orange juice, rolls, ham/cheese,... More

We stayed here for two nights, the room was delightful (room 103). Very spacious and quirky. The breakfast on our first day was very nice, but on the second day we were served stale bread, but this might be because it was a Sunday. Would definitely return here for a quiet nights sleep, and a reasonably priced mid-range hotel /... More

After walking all day in cusco i really needed to have some rest. My friend told me about this place and she was right. The location is great and the staff was always there to help. The room was tidy and the beds great. They have a nice table in the garden perfect for a book in the afternoon

For my family of five, this place was perfect. The location is very central and secure and their family room is ideal for a family of my size. True, the breakfast was no more than adequate. But nothing was too much trouble for them, including printing off boarding passes and arranging for some brekky outside of normal hours. Trust me,... More

Rooms are really really average. They are neat and clean. Breakfast is good. Locations is fantastic.... as it is close to plaza de armas and you can walk almost to every place you want to visit. The location was very convenient for us. Service - We found everything took a long time in Peru. Service here too was the same...... More

El Andariego is a great option in Cusco. My wife and I stayed there for 5 days. The staff was extremely polite and helpful (they even helped us find a local painter who ended up doing an amazing painting for my wife). The location is excellent, close the Plaza de Armas and several other main attractions but away from all... More

Stay here! Close to the Plaza del Armes. Helpful staff - English not great, but internet translations work. Good linens, good beds, hot water for showers could be better - but get over it! Good security, they arranged transport and connections - good people! Gotta love their breakfast! Just a super nice place, in Cusco of all places! A real... More

Hotel El Andariego is in a good central location, yet far enough from the Plaza de Armas (less crowded). The hotel is situated away from the main street, behind two iron gates, and consists of two buildings. The rooms are nice and quiet, although during weekends the nearby disco may be heared during the night. Because the houses are old,... More
