“Value for your money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We stayed in Maytaq for three nights and we found it a great place to stay. Nice rooms, Confy beds and clean bathrooms. It has a very nice area for taking breakfast (included) and is right aside to the center of Cusco.
Their personnel were amazingly friendly and helpful, but that is a common standard in Peru. But also its manager its amazing and will give you good insights of Cusco.

My husband, my college student daughter, and I traveled to Peru last August. I posted an earlier review before we actually stayed at the Maytaq, speaking to how Andrea, the hotel manager, unbelievably went out of her way to help us prior to our arrival. She personally advanced the money and purchased three Machu Picchu entrance tickets for us (and emailed the vouchers) when the Peruvian government stopped allowing the use of credit cards to pay for the reservations made online. Understanding, as well, the Maytaq policy is to pay at the time of arrival (no credit cards in advance) and we were staying there AFTER we used the Machu Picchu tickets. It all worked out perfectly and we were very grateful for her trust and generosity. And to complete the saga – we loved staying at the Maytaq.

Objectively:
Pros - Our room was surprisingly large for a triple – the 3 of us stayed in the only room that had been available. The lobby, breakfast area, & our room were immaculate, tastefully modern & quite comfortable. The bath soaps etc were of a lovely quality & individual Kleenex packets were provided. The Reception staff was excellent. They made restaurant reservations for us, were exceedingly friendly & helpful in every way. Andrea is sophisticated and gracious, so it made sense that the hotel was likewise. Breakfast was excellent - eggs made to order etc. The location was perfect for us - on a quiet street, but quite close to the areas we wanted to walk. Coca & other teas available - I believe - 24 hours. We drank a lot of tea! We arrived in Cusco from the Sacred Valley by car so we did not need their complimentary airport pickup. Andrea agreed in an advance email to instead, provide a taxi to the airport when we left. The value and comfort here were outstanding. We will definitely stay at the Maytaq if we are fortunate enough to return to Cusco.

Cons - none. But note that there is a flight of stairs from the street up to the lobby and then a smaller flight of steps to the upstairs rooms. If you are unable or unwilling to walk up steps in the higher altitude, this is probably not the ideal hotel for you.
The heater in our room was not working well the first night (we stayed two nights) – making our room a bit cold - but the problem was fixed when we told them the next morning.

Staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The location is terrific, very short walk to main square. Buffet breakfast was very nice.
Rooms are nice and clean although ours was very stuffy and could be noisy when the window was open.

We ended our two week adventure in South America by staying four nights at the Maytaq Wasin Hotel. The hotel is in a great location! You are a block and half off the main square in Cusco. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The rooms are big and the bathroom is modern and nice. You can walk to great restaurants around the city. In addition to great accommodations, the staff is super friendly. They are always helpful and kind. After the first night they recognized us and had our key ready when we walked up. The breakfast is good and they provide cooked to order eggs in addition to bread, meats, cheeses and cereal. They have coffee service all day in the lounge area. Freddy was great and helpful to assist with any needs.

Room Tip: Make sure you visit the roof top to see spectacular views of the city.

We just finished a two week trip to South America and this was hands down our favorite hotel. The location is fantastic and within walking distance to shopping and excellent restaurants. The staff is just phenomenal. They were helpful, polite and accomodating. Rare at any hotel these days. One of our trip members wasn't feeling so good and the breakfast staff and front desk staff went above and beyond to make him more comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful each morning and the rooftop view was great. They also have a laundry service that is reasonably priced and very quick! The rooms are very clean and quiet.I really can't say enough nice things about this place. I would stay here again without hesitation.
