Centrally located, with shops and forex stalls around it, and super close to Plaza de Armas. The rooms were very spacious, some fraying around the edges, but comfortable and clean. The shower had hot water but could be intermittent. Beautiful courtyard - our room was right next to it. Fairly quiet as well, with a very efficient and friendly staff,... More

The hotel is very well located and very quiet. Our room opened onto a courtyard and it was very peaceful. Yes, the room was chilly but a heater was provided and once in bed it was great - I hate hot rooms| The staff were outstanding with their assistance. The breakfast room has an original Inca wall and looks out... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights before doing the Salkantay Trek (in room 209) and two nights at the end of my trip (in room 213). The location of the hotel was perfect. It was super close to Plaza de Aramas. The staff was very friendly and helpful with providing me with suggestions for eating and finding places... More

I greatly enjoyed my stay at the Tupac. The staff were helpful and sorted out luggage that the airline had lost for me. They kept my bags secure while I was on a trek, and I returned to find them in my room. The porters were helpful. Breakfast was simple, and not particularly varied, but good enough - some room...

All the same positive comments as others. I would stay there again if I had the opportunity to return to Cusco. Yes, it was cold, but the staff was so responsive to get heaters for us and the bedding was cozy; truly not a problem as it's cold anywhere there at night.

In terms of 3* hotels in Cusco you can't get much better value for money. It's got a great courtyard fantastic for chilling out in the sun, awesome Inca walls, the staff are great, very family friendly. It's only 3 blocks from the plaza, yes the rooms are basic but clean, a wee bit cold but you have a heater.... More

The Tupac Yupanqui must be one of the best-located hotels in Cusco; close enough to the central Plaza yet quiet enough for a good night's sleep. I enjoyed the hotel's central courtyard, and the stonework both inside and outside is said to be from the original Inca palace. They always have free coca tea to help you acclimatise and the...

Although well located, the hotel is suffering from a series of problems. The water pump feeding the rooms makes a very loud noise. Do not stay in room number 108 or you will not sleep. When I complained about the noise, the manager turned the water pump off, leaving me with no tap or toilet water. He told me I... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2012 on a group tour. The hotel is very centrally located, clean and comfortable with a great courtyard for relaxing in. It's not luxury, but it had everything we needed. Staff were friendly and the service was good. Bathrooms and breakfasts a little basic but all in all it was a great... More
