We were looking for a hotel that had a local atmosphere but the comfort of a " big chain" facility. This hotel was perfect! Beautiful setting in quiet area but close to everything. Large, comfortable rooms set around a beautiful courtyard. Breakfast was plentiful and good! Staff here was very friendly and helpful. We we were supposed to stay two... More

This is a lovely, not elegant, reasonably priced hotel, a few blocks for the main square in Cusco and the two magnificent churches there, as well as being a good jumping-off point for the long trip to Machu Picchu. The hotel has a pleasant central courtyard and restaurant. The desk staff could have been more helpful on several things, but... More

Up the hillside, but still walkable to the Plaza de Armas. The staff was great, rooms were nice and not just boring same 'ol thing. The bar was cozy and breakfast space was bright and welcoming. Stayed with my father, but my wife would like it too.

Great staff, food, and accommodation. Room and bathroom was very clean. They tended to all our needs. The only thing I would have wished would be different is if we had asked for a room at the first level and not the ground level.

A great place to stay in Cusco. A beautiful courtyard, comfortable rooms, very helpful staff. Leaving our bags to head to Maccu Pitchu was not a problem. Breakfast was good too. Would highly recommend to others and would definitely stay here again.

There are 2 things that make Hotel Arqueologo stand out: the service and the decor. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a great one, from helping us find a good restaurant to mixing us some very fine Pisco Sours. And if you value ambience, this hotel is a cut above. Their mix of modern and... More

My room was very clean, the bathroom was modern, and I loved the ambiance of the cabin colonial feeling. When we first arrived we were greeted with mate de coca (coca tea) and a map of the city with recommendations. The location itself was great since we were about less than 5 min from the plaza. The breakfast time was... More

Absolutely loved this hotel...it was simply outstanding. I stayed here for a total of seven nights (surrounding a trip to Machu Picchu), and I couldn't have been happier. The location is perfect...a few blocks from Plaza de Armas, and if you continue on the road uphill, it will lead you to the Sacsayhuaman ruins. It is also only a few... More
