We stayed here post Inca Trail as a treat from the hostels. Great choice. We had a huge room with balcony, very comfy bed and pillows, the shower had hot water and good pressure, great brekky spread (continental brekky and cooked eggs to) and top location (3mins from the main plaza). The hotel has a gorgeous sunny courtyard as well.... More

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anybody. The location is very central - approximately 2-5 minutes walking to the plaza des Armes , the staff are friendly and speak excellent English, laundry is affordable, and breakfast is decent. It's not a 5 star place if that's what you're used to - but the price, location, and staff make it... More

Stayed here either side of an Inca trail organised trip. It's basic accommodation, comfy beds and hot showers - the perfect combo after trekking the Andes. Friendly staff and a great variety at breakfast. It soon became home from home. Good location a few minutes from the main square. The rooms away from the main road were quieter.

We stayed at the Tupac Yupanqui before and after walking the Inca Trail. It offers a straightforward approach to Trekkers needs. Dry, comfortable rooms, space to review and dry clothes, good and plentiful breakfast. The courtyard area made a welcoming place to relax. The rooms vary in terms of facilities. The hotel is only five minutes from the main square... More

Stayed here either side of a trek. I found the hotel clean, bed fine and there was a heater in the room (although I didn't find it cold) Breakfast was good with plenty of food and endless coffee. Staff very friendly and helpful throughout. Five minutes walk to the central Plaza de Armas and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.... More

The hotel is a decent cheap accommodation, with friendly staff and a nice central terrace, but the rooms are only okay. I stayed here before and after the Inca Trail, on the first floor before and second after; the second floor is much more comfortable and the floors are less cold (but still cold). They can keep your bags while... More

I liked the hotel and the highlight was the incredibly helpful staff. Our room was right on the street side and so was noisy at night but nothing some earplugs won't fix. The room was large and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was included and well done each morning. We stayed here pre and post inca trail and enjoyed it both... More

Stayed at this hotel before and after doing the "secret inca trail"trek. The room I had for the first part of the visit was right on a busy cobblestone laneway. The traffic noisy was very bad and it was difficult to get a good nights sleep. Facilities in the room were fair but dated. Staff however were extremely helpful and... More

We stayed here several nights while exploring Cusco. The rooms were clean but the bed was lacking. The mattress and pillows were very uncomfortable. We stayed in room 215 and it was very noisy. We heard a lot honking as it backs up to a busy street. Overall it was a good value for the money. It's close to the... More
