We stayed here five nights and also left our bags before heading to Machu Picchu. Very cute place, lots of neat decorations. Easy to find, albeit a steep hike, and very close to Plaza de Armas and access to the ruins north of town (Sacsayhuamán). Camilo gave us TONS of information about places to visit. I speak pretty good Spanish,... More

We had an excellent experience during our stay at Piccola Locanda. Very friendly staff, beautiful rooms and very relaxed/homy atmosphere. Quite a hike to get to the hotel but worth it. It gets you prepped for Machu Picchu or other hikes you have planned. I would stay there again!

We really enjoyed Piccola Locanda - comfortable rooms, very clean bathrooms, great breakfast and, above all, very friendly staff and owners - they were really helpful! We would definitely recommend it and come back for another visit!

I never write reviews because I stay in a lot of hostels and I'm too lazy (traveling for over a year), but I write this review because of the unique generosity of the people here. I stayed here several sets of nights over winter break. We stayed in three different rooms. All were clean, there were heaters, the mattresses were... More

This place was suggested to me by a friend and true to his recommendation it does have character. It is beautifully done up especially the rooms. My husband and I stayed at this place for 2 nights, and we were the only ones at the B&B. A lot of TA reviews have mentioned about the number of steps to the... More

Stayed here twice during my trip in Peru. I loved this place! Its colorful interior and friendly staff made it a home away from home. We arrived on a rainy night and called the staff on our way to the hostel to let them know we are coming, and one of the staff waited outside the door to welcome us... More

I can’t recommend this place enough. Nice rooms, consistent hot water, and great common areas. Cusco in general tends to be expensive, so I think this is a good value for your money although it's more than a basic hostel. The staff was really helpful and promptly took care of any needs. It is run by a family and helps... More

I stayed here in February of 2007, with an aattractive Peruvian of questionable sanity, and reputation, her father, and an NYC buddy of mine. I really liked this place. The owners were young parents, French and Peruvian, and the location was in a good spot, overlooking the main town square, with EZ access to taxis if you decided not to... More

I switch from Hostal Recoleta because I wanted a place that was closer to the main square. Huge mistake. This place is closer to the square but located up a massively steep hill... so steep that even for this in-shape reviewer it left me winded every time. And this steep hill also happens to be the bar/club street of Cusco... More

We stayed at Piccola Locanda for 3 nights prior to doing the Salkantay trek, and then two more nights after the trek. The first time we stayed in Biblioteca and the second in Alex. Biblioteca was a charming room with great views, and we never had any problem with availability of the communal bathrooms or hot water. We stayed during... More
