We found the staff extremely nice, room was basic but comfortable, bed is comfortable, the location was perfect, breakfast was good, very nice shower with hot water, The only problem was all the stairs to get to the hostal but wasn't a big issue.

Breakfast was provided every morning. Edu was so helpful in giving us tips on what to see in Cusco, and Eduardo had fantastic restaurant recommendations. It was a bit chilly... More

We booked Orquidea Real Hostal because we wanted a comfortable place to stay in Cusco, as we anticipated being sick from the altitude. Turns out, it had pretty much the same offerings of anywhere else half their price. Namely, I read reviews that people were given heaters, but we stayed there three nights, and I asked every night if they... More

Cozy hotel near Plaza de Armas. Close to supermarkets and restaurants. Very helpful staff arranged taxi for a day to go to the salt mines in Maras and Moray. Simple breakfast with a scrambled egg and some fruits. Rooms were (in late June) cold with no heater, so being warm clothes! We stored our backpacks here while we went to... More

Could not say enough nice things about the people who run this place. American Airlines lost our luggage for days and after days of AA customer service being clueless of our luggage location, Eduardo and Edu found our luggage at the Cusco airport. They communicated with the airport for an hour over the phone, called us cabs, and travelled with... More

The staff here is amazing. Eduardo and Edu were great about everything, the entire time, at a moments notice. They couldn't have been more friendly and the entire staff goes above and beyond to make everything about your stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. We arrived in Cusco at about 8am after having traveled about 16 hours. We were... More

Great homey, charming lodge in San Blas area of Cusco. Short walk to Plaza de Armas and all other places tourists enjoy. I took a cooking class and horseback trip to ruins while based here. Staff is very helpful; great recommendations from them. Goid breakfasts, too!

I stayed at Orequidea with a group of friends. Not only were the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, but they constantly went out of their way to assist us while we were on daily excursions around Cusco or during our 4-day Inca trail trek. Clean, safe, and accommodating - I couldn't recommend them enough!

Our experience at Orquidea was fantastic, not only for the great location (short walk to Plaza de Armas and many shops/restaurants/etc), clean and comfortable rooms, and delicious breakfast, but also for the camaraderie we developed with Eduard, Luz, and Edu, who treated us like family. Gracias por todos! Me gustaría volver!
