This is an oasis of beautiful gardens, flowers, birds, with helpful staff and great homemade food. The bungalows have big fireplaces, so we lit a fire, as it’s quite chilly when the sun goes down (‘it’s not Chile’, the kids say, ‘it’s Peru’…). The profits from this hotel support a local community project for children – extra primary school education... More

We rested here after arriving directly from London. It was a perfect place to recover, adjust to the altitude. The staff were beyond helpful, so kindly and gentle. The little cottage we stayed I was very cosy, we didn't light a fire, but all the logs were there and it would've been great. We walked past a wonderful meadow of... More

This is my second time at Arcos Iris. It is located just off of the main highway in Urubamba. Note: If the moot-taxi's don't know where you are going, mention La foundation niños del acros iris. They seem to know that better than the hotel. In my last stay, I was in a bungalow which are very beautiful and spacious.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of August and it was fantastic. The rooms are beautiful with open fires to keep out the evening chill. The service was impeccable and the food great too - we ate both nights in the restaurant. The staff gave us a very interesting tour of the school and it was great... More

We stayed here for two nights before making our way to Machu Picchu and we were absolutely amazed! It is a beautiful place and our favourite part of the accommodation was the open fire in the bunglow. The service was great and people were really friendly. The chef's cooking was brilliant - and the best part was that there was... More

Excellent service in a very very nice environment. The best thing is that this hotel is part of a foundation that helps poor children and the local community. Besides this, we had had unforgetable experience in this relaxed and inspirational atmosphere.

Beautiful place with a beautiful message and meaning. The staff was incredibly nice, even the new management (temporary) team that we met, everyone treated us genuinely like family. It was refreshing to come home from a day in Machu Picchu and have the people at the hotel all making sure we made it back ok and had a good time.... More

We stayed two nights at the hotel. It was such a unique experience. The staff are dedicated to the mission of the hotel, which is to provide schooling and vocational training to children and young adults from the impoverished villages of the valley. They seemed truly delighted to have us as guests and could not have been more accommodating to... More

Perfect in every way... Service, comfort and tranquility. We travelled with two young children and they were outside all day playing in the large beautiful gardens. At night we had a bonfire in the forest followed by a lovely, simple and healthy meal in the restaurant. This was the best place we stayed in Peru and I wished we had... More
