I spent two nights in Hostal Kiswar near the first of April, 2014. The family who run the hostal and restaurant were more than nice. Truly they responded to my every need...Edison got someone to pick me up in Cusco, his wife made me a nice soup, he stored and helped me with my heavy bag! My room was great!... More

This is definitely a one night hotel, or if you're happy with very basic, then this will work for you. We had a room overlooking the main plaza and although noisy, the view is well worth it. Room is very basic, beds are comfortable with enough blankets. It did rain that night and there was a leak in our bedroom... More

All the other cafés were not ready with their espresso machines yet. Great location right in the central plaza. You can people watch while you enjoy your... More

Rooms were great! Clean and comfortable. Private bath and hot water. They have a Internet cafe in the lobby of the hostel... More

a very clean family operated hotel on the Plaza de Armas. reasonable rates with an excellent restaurant. I paid 45 soles about 17USD for one night and continental breakfast included. I found the creaking floors very comforting, it is after all an old building but all is fresh inside.

Don't book online, they ask for a 5% deposit. But it's not a deposit. It's extra costs for the online booking. Just call them. The place was decent, there was a terrible smell from the drain in the bathroom and the shower water was leaking into the room. But overall the beds and rooms were clean enough for the price....
