We stayed here for two nights after we went to Machu Picchu. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast filling, and rooms massive. This is a great value for the cost ($55). It was very easy to walk to all the intown historical sites and great restaurants. The room itself is a little dated but it was clean and very... More

We spent a total of four nights here and were very content. Loved the beamed ceilings, tile floors, and rustic charm of the rooms. They were attractive and clean, and the electric heaters warmed things up enough to keep us comfortable in the chilly Cusco winter. We also appreciated the extra blankets in the dresser, the hot showers, and the... More

We stayed at this property, a good property with Very Poor Customer Service. Checked in late at 10:00 pm. After check in asked the girl at the front desk what time was the check out and she said 8:00 am, so I requested if it is possible to check out later. She said No, but later agreed for 9am, and...

Clean and cosy rooms and very near the the main square & restos so location is ideal. Room had a heater which was ideal... More

Very nice hotel, good location, excellent staffs. They are very kind, help me to carry the luggage. Inform me tour messages.... The hotel is on the hill. Therefore, you can see the beautiful views of Cuzco. The breakfast is served early, nice room. I love everything from this hotel and Cuzco

Stayed here for the 2 days I was in Cusco. Small, narrow building, and rooms (at least mine) somewhat dingy because of limited natural lighting, but its location and the most accommodating of staff more than make up. Barely a five-minute walk to decent restaurants, even a supermarket. A mere three blocks from the Plaza de Armas. While the hostel... More

This is a nice little hotel that is very close to the city square - maybe a 5 minute walk. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. They also speak a good bit of English, which is quite helpful if your Spanish isn't too strong. It is very cute & comfortable. We were really happy here.

We stayed in the Orquidea Real at the beginning and end of our 4 day Inca Trail hike. They stored our luggage over the hike and had everything ready and waiting for us in our rooms when we got back. The folks working there were more than happy to assist in whatever way possible, and despite me not speaking Spanish,... More

Great little hotel. More like a small B&B then a real hotel. Very close to the city square and just down the hill from the San Blas area. We stayed in two different rooms at our stay there, once before our trip to Machu Picchu and again afterwards. The staff was very accommodating and alerted us to our scheduled activities... More

I just love this place. I was here 12 years ago and couldn't wait to get back. Built with an original Inca wall on one side, this place and it's ancient floors is very comforting. It is not fancy, but it is very well kept and you will sleep like a baby in the wonderful comfy beds and feather comforters.... More
