One of the two Tierra Viva hotels we used in Cusco. These are very popular boutique hotels located about 7-8 minutes from Plaza de Armas. You have to pass by some kind of fenced construction site that forces you to cross the street. The hotel is in an adapted older building, so there is a variety of shapes and sizes.... More

Always hard to book a room in a foreign country when you're really not sure what it's going to be like. Absolutely no problems here. We paid a little more for a slightly better room and we got a huge room with a modern, sexy bathroom and all the mod cons. It's a little bit of a walk up a... More

Stayed two nights at each end of a Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. A short stroll in to town and close to restaurants and all the sights. Staff were very helpful in assisting us recovering some lost baggage. Tasty breakfasts and good size rooms. Most enjoyable.

The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Best experience ever. My son and I enjoyed the beautiful room. They stored our luggage during our 5 day trek and were accommodating upon our return. Breakfast was delicious. Close to the square. Safe and comfortable

Very nice and tastefully decorated hotel. Not too big and very helpful staff. Only problem was a power cut one morning when we had to be up at 5.30am. Eating breakfast and packing in the dark is not easy, would have been 5 stars.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel in Cusco is located in what used to be an elegant colonial residence. Throughout the hotel you’ll find a charming contrast between this imperial city’s rich history and modern convenience and comfort. Our spacious rooms are an invitation to rest, offering the ideal place to refuel and start a new day of exploration and discovery. As was characteristic in large colonial residences, our hotel has two interior patios where our guests can relax during a sunny afternoon or enjoy a soft breeze at the end of the day. ... more   less
