We only stayed here one night. The property is only a few blocks away from Plaza De Armas with plenty of restaurants close by. The rooms smelled a bit moldy and the entire guesthouse is in the shade so it remains cool all day. Overall there are so many places to stay in town that are reasonably priced I don't... More

This hotel met all my expectations as a great value for low budget travelers. Upon entering the hallway into the hotel one is greeted by a plethora of plants and sunlight and this ambience continued all the way to my room on the 3rd floor. My room was quiet, and adequate, but didn't have hot water in the sink -... More

My family and I stayed there for a night at the last minute while traveling from Cusco to Aguascalientes (Machu Picchu). The service was excellent, the rooms were very clean and the location was perfect. I highly recommend it if staying in Ollantaytambo.

My friend and I spent 4 nights at Mama Cusco 2 before and 2 after a 5 day trek to Machu Picchu, and our room was wonderful. It had a great view of the city, and it was comfortable and clean. Berta and Carmen answered all our questions, and Mercedes arranged a Sacred Valley Tour for us. The shower always... More

Wonderful peaceful rooms just off the main road. Very good prices and large clean rooms that are well equipped. Wonderful friendly service and a nice breakfast. Is a 30 min slow walk to town or a 4 soles taxi ride. Definately recommend.

As it is written in the Title - place is very nice and clean, not far away from Plaza de Armas and relatively cheap. If you are looking for a hotel-style perfectly manicured room - this is not for you. We stayed there in two different rooms between our travel around Peru - I preferred one on the second floor....

Mercedes goes the extra mile to help you with tours, getting tickets and show you the best option available for you, the Heating did not work well but they changed as soon as I requested it. There is no point of sale for credit cards, so make sure you have cash to pay for your stay. Breakfast is so good.... More

We stayed for quite a period of time at Casa de Mama between trips in the area. Firstly I will note the main negative which is that the property is not in the centre, it is in Wanchaq, at least a 20-30 minute walk to the main square. It suited us because it was cheap and we had a car... More

Casa Mama 2 may not be an obvious first choice when you are planning a trip to Cusco but I can highly recommend it. The real magic is Mercedes, the owner / manager. She is a gem. She speaks several languages fluently. She has been a professional guide for much of her life and has a great knowledge of the... More

Everyone is very friendly and extremely helpful. Inside, the CASA is comfortable and welcoming. The location feels sketchy but is safe. Breakfast includes eggs (unusual)! We liked being able to make tea in our room and having a refrigerator. Great travel value!
