“Wow! Wonderful boutique hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Such a joy to find this gem of a hotel right near the Plaza del Armas. Beautifully decorated, charming, well appointed hotel with excellent service. Greatly enjoyed the modern feel that was still cozy and welcoming. The hotel is quiet and lovely, although you may get street noise coming from the busy restaurants and clubs nearby.

This was a wonderful place to refresh and relax during our tour of Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. We requested to stay here because of the good reviews received (and mixed reviews of the hotels listed with our tour company) and it was no problem for our wonderful tour compay Machu Travel Peru to make the change and arrange for us to stay at Tierra Viva. I think everyone should stay here to make the most of their time in this delightful city. You will enjoy the great location, also.

A special thanks to Janet, Jorge and Jovenal for extra special service and to the ladies in the breakfast area for a delicious breakfast and wonderful service.

the hotel is part of a new chain called tierra viva. they have hotels all around. this particular one is brand new 3 months old. it is in an old inca building and has been remodelled to suit. the design is very good and interesting. the staff are great always ready to help. it is very clean with all the mod cons wifi cable tv etc... the location is perfect very closed to all the attractions. the only thing i think might be a problem is that there is no phonic insulation, so you hear everything and being and old building full of courtyard it echoes quite a bit. the other challenge for the management will be to be able to maintain such a good standard over time.

The Tierra Viva hotel was perfectly located just metres from the Plaza des Armes but very quiet and comfortable. It is an intimate boutique hotel, with a delightful view across the tiled roofs of Cusco from the upstairs lounge. The room and bathroom were comfortable and well equipped and very quiet at night. You rarely encounter your fellow guests except at the breakfast buffet, which is pleasant and ample. It is very central to the museums and restaurants of Cusco. The hotel includes airport pick-up in its tariff which is welcome. The staff were helpful and arranged cabs to and from the railway. Late at night on our return from Machu Picchu it was great to have someone waiting for us. The interior courtyard lounge is a charming spot for a quiet beer!

Room Tip: The rooms appeared consistent across the hotel

A friend and I stayed 3 separate nights each at this hotel. Its a quick walk down the tiny side streets to the beautiful plaza. Restaurants surround the hotel for blocks. The hotel staff is very accommodating. Excellent at assisting with bags if needed, arranging transport, even finding a cell phone left in a cab.
The rooms...Understand that this hotel, like most in the area, is built in what must be an ancient building. That requires some ingenuity on the part of the hotel owner. I stayed in 3 completely different rooms, each very unique and comfortable. Soft, warm beds, excellent towels and bath items. I will say that the room my first night- their base room- was a bit small for my enjoyment. When I mentioned this to the staff on checkout, I was moved to much larger rooms for other nights I stayed. Again, excellent service.

Room Tip: I feel like every room there is different. Ask to see a couple, the rates are not significantly more...

I stayed at Tierra Viva with my boyfriend for 4 days this month. What a lovely hotel! super cute and great location right off the center square of Cusco. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only negative about our room was the actual location of the room- ours faced a very busy nightlife spot in Cusco so you could here people partying and bands playing etc. so if you can't stand noise request an interior room or one facing the front of the hotel (we weren't really bothered by it). The breakfast was very fresh as well. Also our driver who picked us up fronthe airport was wonderful! Jesus helped us plan our Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu trips, he did everything at a very reasonable price, very organized. overall LOVED this hotel!

This place was so great! we loved our stay here, very warm and cosy, staff were lovely, food was good, bed was comfortable and room was well decorated. It was a lovely little boutique on a quiet street very close to the main square with many shops and restaurants, location was perfect. The hotel had a beautiful little terrace with great views and was fun to explore, many little passageways and staircases- all underground. They had a fire when we stayed, it was nice to sit in front of the fire after a hard day. We loved it and would definitely return. The free pick-up from the airport was also nice- good to know someone is waiting for you rather than fighting the taxi drivers away and knowing you will be ripped off.

I had a really nice/great experience! Everyone that I encountered that worked at the hotel were all wonderful, thoughtful & very helpful! The hotel was very clean and the rooms, albeit small in size, were comfortable and clean which was important to me. I was in room 102 which seemed at first like its way down in the "basement" but it actually worked out because it was nice and quite.

The hotel is located very close to the Plaza of Arms... its actually not facing the Plaza but found on a small side street that is less than a 3 min walk to the Plaza where all the restaurants are located. The street is not scary at all... As a women traveling alone, I always felt safe but of course like in any place in the world you always have to be aware.

The staff was always beyond helpful and I can't thank them enough for being so thoughtful and making my first traveling alone experience great! Janette, Juvenile, Miguel, Flor and el senor Abram and anyone else I am forgetting (si me recuerdo bien) muchas gracias por ser tan amable conmigo que pase un tiempo inolvidable en su hermoso Cusco!

Overall I really recommend this hotel. I spent Dec30-Jan3 in Cusco and completely fall in love with the city & the people!

Room Tip: Because Cusco is 12,000 ft having a room on the first floor... lobby is on the 4th... was harder tha...
