“Would stay here again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2009

Great little hotel right around the corner from the main plaza. My plans changed a bit during the trip and the hotel I was staying at didn’t have any rooms available for when I needed but the Casa Grande did. Great price (better than where I was staying) and it was comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was tasty and the staff was very pleasant. Would definitely stay here again with friends and/or family.

With all of the impersonality and tourism pressure in Cusco, it's hard to believe that this place right next to the Plaza de Armas would be so unpretentious and friendly. Cusco is overpriced, but this place has all of the necessities for the tired trekker or meandering tourist at a decent enough rate. The staff were terrific and genuinely friendly. Best place I stayed in Cusco.

I was two nights at this lodge and I founded it really nice and comfortable. The service was good as well as the attendants. The location was also great at only steps from the Plaza de Armas, the price was cheap and the room was clean and quite.

Very close to the Plaza and good price. I stayed 2 nights and my only complain was the guest, there were people watching tv (soccer game), and they were screaming like crazy that my baby woke up a couple times, and my baby can slepp in any nosy place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2009

It was the third hotel we tried out in Cusco: overall the location was great, very close to the plaza de armas.
The hotel looked nice in it's old style, but we had better value for money at other places.
The room had no radiator, only for an extra charge.
The breakfast was ridiculous: no plates, bread, jam, butter. That's it. (maybe we had got tired of bread and jam by then, but it was the most rudimentary breakfast we had in Peru)

Free wifi if you have your own laptop.
Staff was extremely friendly. Shockingly the women staff (very tiny ladies) were carrying all big suitcases around.

I'd not stay there again but choose other hotels with more value for money next time.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2008

We found this place after walking down one of the main streets in Cusco. The reception staff were really friendly and the open courtyard of the hostel onto which all of the rooms face, was pretty. We had a double room with bathroom. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower wasn’t brilliant as the water flow was quite low but there was hot water. The room did get cold at night but for an extra 10 Soles (£2) a night you can rent a portable radiator to heat the room. This room had a lot of natural light but some of the rooms can be dark so ask to look around a few rooms before you choose one. The layout of the hostel is great and has a lot of character with a cobbled courtyard, balconies and old wooden floors in the main areas. No room safes and no hairdryers but this is a hostel so expect the basic hostel standards. Cusco is relatively expensive so for the price we found this to be a good place to stay. It is also very centrally located right on one of the main streets leading to the main square but our room was quiet at night as our room was at the back. A basic breakfast is included in the price of flat bread orange juice, coffee/tea and jam.

  • Liked — Central location and price
  • Disliked — Shower was very weak
