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... More

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

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights during our superb Amazonas Explorers trip in Peru. They held onto our spare kit while we trekked for 9 days...everything was OK. This place isn't luxury, barely 3 star. It is a small, family run type of hotel, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Courtyard is a lovely original feature of... More

The location of this hotel is great, its really close to the main square and the area around the hotel felt really safe, even during the night. The hotel itself is a lovely old traditional building, but it really needs an update. The rooms are clean, but very old fashioned and the rooms are really cold with just a small... More

I was meeting a party who was staying at the hotel. While I was waiting and clearly not a guest, the staff asked if I would like to eat breakfast. It was sparse and I needed something light so I said yes and asked for juice and toast. I then asked for the check and they had no way of... More

I stayed at the hotel twice during my 3-week tour of Peru. Jaime and the rest of the staff were very attentive and helpful and the hotel rooms were comfortable. Some of the rooms have stronger WIFI connection than others, and the staff (Sebastian) tested several rooms with me to determine which was most suitable to my needs. The breakfasts... More
