“One of my favorite places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is a boutique hotel...it is centrally located on the noisy San Franciso Plaza; and it is an oasis. The rooms (away from the street) are cozy with steaming hot showers, decent internet connections, and yummy heavy andean blankets on the beds. The continental breakfast includes a variety of local juices, fruits, breads, and teas. The lobby serves as a tea & tv lounge. The staff is simply wonderful, the manager, Denny, and his team make every effort to communicate and serve. When our departure flight was cancelled at the last moment, they scrambled in order to find us rooms so that we'd have a place to stay the night. These were our third and fourth visits to this jewel, it won't be our last.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the street, the balconies are nice but the foot traffic goes all night.

We stayed here originally for their perfect central location on the San Francisco Plaza. We went back two more times in the same month because the hotel is impeccably clean, the service is above par, and the staff is wonderfully helpful and friendly. Our travel plans changed without notice, and the Amerinka was kind enough to maintain our reservations (without price change) and store our luggage until we could return. This is a boutique hotel, so it is unpretentious and service-oriented. There is a tea service in the main lobby which is just a brief introduction to the excellent services offered by this hotel. The prices are comparable, the rest of the experience is far above the standard for this city.

We stayed here before our trip to Machu Pichu. Cuzco is a very busy city with lots of polluting noisy vehicles. We were grateful that we were not in a hotel on a busy street, instead the Amerinka faces onto a sort of pedestrianised street. Its location is right in the middle of cuzco and it is an easy walk to most of the attractions in Cuzco.
Inside the hotel there was a delightful atmosphere and guests are welcomed with a special drink that is supposed to stop altitude sickness. We couldn't drink it! It was horrible tasting thankfully we did not get altitude sickness maybe smelling the drink helped!
The rooms are quite small and face an inner courtyard with lots of going on inside It overlooked a little cafe from the main square.
Strangely in the bathroom there was plenty of hot water in the shower but the sink did not have a hot water tap! The breakfast buffet was typical Peruvian with lots of bread and fruit. The hotel has computers where guests can access the internet free of charge.
The hotel was fairly quite whilst we were there and allowed us to leave our luggage unpacked (free of charge) in the room whilst we went to stay at another hotel close to Machu Pichu.

We stayed here in September 2011 because we decided to stay an extra night in Cusco and the hotel we had been staying in was booked for the night. The hotel we stayed in previously, Hotel Encantada, was $100USD/night and was very nice! We found this hotel in downtown Cusco for the same price.
We arrived and check-in was okay. The lobby was fine, but not nearly the same quality/finishings as our last hotel. We were taken to our room, which was definitely not what we were expecting. The bed was old and covered with a stained comforter, but the bathroom was disgusting. The sink was very old, and when we tried to get ready for bed, there was NO WATER. My husband called down to the front desk and said, "Our room has no water". The front desk agent said, "Hold on", and hung up. We waited a few minutes & called back. The agent told us that they turned the water on for the room and it should be coming shortly. We waited another 15 minutes, and tried again. Still no water. My husband went down to the front desk and the agent insisted that he SEE that the water was not running. When he saw there was no running water, he explained that their water storage tank was low and it would just take a little while for the water to begin flowing again. Long story short, we didn't have water to get ready for bed nor did we have water for the shower in the morning.
As if the poor accommodations, lack of water, and bad service were not enough, we pulled the sheets down to find a spider in the bed! We killed the spider, and found another spider. What would attract a spider to a bed? Bugs. I am afraid to know what we slept on that night, but I hope no one else pays money to have the same experience.
The next morning, we requested a refund and/or discount. After hours of battling with the manager, we received a $10 discount. So it cost us $90 USD for a dirty room, poor service, and a room with no water.
All in all, this was a horrible place to stay, and I would not stay there again if it was free!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

The front of the hotel, hotel sign, and lobby look great. The location is unbeatable as well. Just 1 or 2 minutes for Plaza de Armas.

Judging from the hotel facase and lobby I expected great rooms. The rooms however are very basic. Nothing charming or unusual. Plain, clean, and just decorated and put together without much thought. Plain and unispiring is the best way to describe it

Another negative was that WiFi did not work in the rooms. Actually it did nt work in the lobby and computer area either. Not sure if that is the norm but it was frustrating

Breakfast selection was good and in line with what other hotels in Peru normally offer

The staff was veryyyyy nice, helpful, and accomodating

I think Cusco has many selecions of hotels and I would select another hotel if possible because I feel not much care or thought is given to the rooms and services here. If no other choices then this hotel would suffice
