“Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We visited Cuzco on our honeymoon and based on previous tripadvisor reviews and the pricing, we decided to stay there.
Beautiful little cozy hostal, where they received us with a smile, a map around cuzco and coca tea to help us with the "mal de altura".
The room and bathroom were very clean, very good WIFI, great view of the city and their terrace and very friendly staff.
The only thing that was kind of challenging was the height of the hotel (we were panting when we got there) and that the checkout time was too early (10am), how ever they were kind enough to take care of our luggage for an extra couple hours for no additional charge.

Best customer service received in Peru!

- Location is good, but really not easy to climb up. The road is not much steep as hard to breathe and to walk up the hill in the highlands (3500 m).
- The hostel and rooms were very well decorated. Very nice patio. Our room was spacious and bright with many windows. We had a very comfortable and cozy room at the top of attic with an amazing view of downtown and the mountains. There was no heating in the room. Our salvation was in hot tea with coca and a warm blankets.
- The breakfast was okay, but unpretentious. In the breakfast room there was also a very nice view of the city.
- The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull, especially one guy, who spoke english very good.
- There were some problems with Wi-Fi from time to time.

Return to this place with pleasure.

There were 5 of us, who stayed 2 nights there. Rooms were ok, but walls are not thick, and you can really hear what your neighbors are doing. WiFi worked from time to time, breakfast was not plentiful. What we liked for sure was helpful staff (especially want to mention Angel) and cozy veranda.

I would recommend this hotel for them who do not want to waste money, interested in authenticity, like to see all cuzco beneath and who is strong enough to climb uphill. The central square is 5 minutes walk (down) or 20 minutes (up)

We happened to walk into this hostal and immediately liked it. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. We thought the bed was very comfortable, enjoy the hot shower with great pressure and really enjoyed amenities such as cable TV and wifi. Also, the location in San Blas is great and the distance into the Plaza de Armas was a nice walk - enough distance away, but not too far. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

I stayed for three nights but had to change rooms after one night due to the excessive noise at night. The first room I was assigned was right next to reception and was very noisy with people coming and going throughout the night and early morning.

The receptionist was not at all suprised when I complained and asked to be moved. I would guess that guests in rooms 1 & 2 alongside the reception area frequently complain about noise. The second room I was given, in the newer part of the hotel was better but it was next to the cleaners cupboard and she started work very early so again there was early morning door slamming and general clanking of buckets etc. I stayed in June both rooms were cold in the evening.

As other reviewers have said the hotel is situated high up in the backstreets of Cusco so for anybody with mobility problems this could be an issue. Overall the hotel offers value for money but avoid the rooms close to the reception area.

Room Tip: Take a room away from reception in the newer part of the hotel.

We stayed here for the rest of our days in Cusco and though it was more expensive than the last place it was so worth it. The gardens were great for sitting out (when it wasnt raining) and we thought the staff was by far the best trained we had come across in Peru so far. They went out of their way to accommodate us all in the same room even though there were four of us.

Even though Tika Wasi is a little bit farther from the Plaza de Armas than some other options it is one block from the San Blas Plaza and offers great service. We wanted some agency and restaurant recommendations and the staff was really helpful. 100% recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.
