“A bit of luxury in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Our room on the third floor was small but well appointed with modern decor, very comfortable bed and big bathroom. Loved the whirlpool tub and free wifi. Outstanding breakfast buffet. Staff was very helpful and offered free taxi transfer to the airport.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, ask for a room on the interior courtyard. There will be some morning noise from e...

This place is beautiful, its staff is helpful and friendly, the location is great. The room we had was spacious and beautifully designed. Great bathroom, too. Wireless internet and a good breakfast buffet. The front desk staff helped us organise transport to/from train stations and the airport and were very efficient upon check-out.

Nothing else to ask for.

I enjoyed the efficient layout of this hotel. It is one of the few hotels in Cusco that defeats the deafening sound of horn-beeping taxis by having most of its rooms underground and yet still allows in natural sunlight through an interior courtyard design. The only downside to the courtyard design is that you do hear other guests. I did best on the very bottom floor as far away from noise as possible but if you are light sleeper and need to sleep in don't stay in the rear courtyard as you'll hear morning breakfast preparations starting at 4:30 a.m. with blenders making juice. The staff accommodated me nicely with room changes to find the one that would best suit me. The location cannot be beat, being just off the plaza de armas, and the staff are helpful with directions although not knowledgeable about where to get a good massage. Booking through Expedia got me the best rate, $70/night vs. the hotel web site of $110. Rooms are small at the lower end but for $70 and the other stuff that comes with it, it is a good value. No organic eggs will be found in Cusco hotels or restaurants but the cook was kind enough to provide me a nice helping of avocado in the morning.

Room Tip: stay on the bottom floor in the primary (Front) courtyard if you're sensitive to noise, otherwis...

Beautiful boutique hotel tucked away up a fairly quiet street off the main plaza.
We had a superior double room, stunning!
We stayed for 2 nights then went to Matchu Picchu, then back for another night.
The hotel stored our luggage for us no problem, and was in our room on our return.
Staff were excellent.
Have no complaints about this hotel...
We were even given bags to pack a breakfast from the buffet as we were leaving very early.

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
