We really enjoyed our recent stay at Samana Inn and Spa. Our room was great and had an excellent view out over Cusco. Juan and his staff were very helpful in making restaurant recommendations, arranging transportation, and always seem to be there if you needed anything. Breakfast was great and included fresh fruit, bread, coffee and cooked eggs. Location was... More

Had a fantastic stay here for one night before heading to Machu Picchu. Juan was very welcoming, we got free coca tea, the room was beautiful, shower water was hot, and breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend!! I hope to come back some day.

I absolutely love smaller, local boutique-style inns as you are often able to have a more personal, intimate experience. Samana Inn & Spa did not fail to meet expectations. I spent a total of 5 nights at the inn (3 before my Inca trail trek and 2 after). I stayed in Rm. #1 with my friend for the first 3... More

Extremely friendly and approachable owner, nice facilities with rustic spa design. We had a couples massage - deep tissue. The massage was of a very high quality (we regularly use spas in the UK and abroad, and this was one of the best we have had in a long while). Highly professional and thorough. Genuine deep tissue with strong pressure... More

Centrally located, so easy to get around. The owners are wonderful and so helpful with everything. The rooms are great, with very comfortable beds. I spent 3 days prior to going on a 4 day Inka trail trek and then again when I arrived back in Cusco after the trek. Having the wonderful spa at the Inn is an extra... More

I really wanted to love this place. I booked months in advance of our trip (we stayed in the Queen + Twin suite). I will say the breakfast was great and the owner Juan was very pleasant to converse with the day he was there to check us in and the one morning he made us breakfast. They stored our... More

We booked a total of 4 nights at the Samana Inn. 3nights before Machu Picchu and 1 night on our return to Cusco. The staff was very helpful and accommodating with restaurant suggestions, arranging taxi's to and from the airport and train station as well as reasonable private drivers for day trips. We booked room #1, very large, on the... More

My sister and I booked this hotel for one night in lovely Cusco, it was a transition hotel and the pictures were very accurate and relatively easy to find. However, the spa wasn't open (I guess we really had to book in advance), the front desk clerk spoke VERY little English, and the breakfast was just OK. We felt very... More

Stayed here on my recent motorcycle trip through SouthAm, and really enjoyed this place. I was given one of the "penthouse" rooms on th top floor of this small hotel, and what an incredible view I had! The staff was also nice. On the slightly negative side, the place doesn't have its own garage, but there is a private (and... More

As a treat for the end of our Peru trip, we booked Room 2 for a 3 night stay about two months in advance via email. We were given a nice welcome and our luggage was carried to the room for us. And good thing as there are 2 sets of stairs to get up - the last set I... More
