We stayed 3 nights in this is an absolutely stunning place before after our doing the Salkantay Trek! First of, it's located 5mn walking distance from the Plaza de Armas via Calle Suecia. Most importantly, both my two friends and I had literally a 5-star service from the lovely staff, on every possible aspects. One example could be that one... More

I booked this Hotel over a month before arriving and had need to email the property to make a few special requests. Ruth the Manager, responded swiftly, happy to accommodate my requests and even suggested and arranged a Shuttle service from Cusco airport. Arriving 5-hours before check in, we were given something warm to drink and accommodated with an early... More

An absolutely gorgeous place to stay right in the center, near the Plaza de Armas of Cusco. Gorgeous view from the room and the terrace where a lovely breakfast is served each morning. Ruth, the owner, is very warm and attentive and the rooms are beautiful. Enchanting.

I stayed here two nights and it was perfect. The shower was always hot. The king bed was comfortable. There was plenty of tea available. One of the evening shift girls was very sweet. I wish I remembered her name. Breakfast included bread, cheese, jam, and a freshly cooked egg. The juice was the best I had in Peru! The... More

This hostal is 4 min walk to the Basilica (historico centro) de Cusco, where all the action and great restaurants are located. The interior court is very cute and the view from the top floor is amazing, espacially at night. Very romantic. The matress was VERY melow and the wifi didn't work.

Very nice hotel in Cuzco. We had a beautiful room with a beautiful view over Cuzco. It was a bit exhausting to walk up the stairs to the hotel but the view was worth it and it was pretty close to the Plaza de Armas. It also has a very nice fully equipped kitchen for cooking and enough coca tea... More

Great little hotel on the hill overlooking Cusco. It has everything you need, is very clean and they are always keen to help, whether it be organise a taxi, or just get your washing done. There are a few restaurants close but just as easy to stroll into the main square in a few minutes.

We stayed here for a total of 10 nights during our trip around Peru. First we had a huge room at the front that had an amazing view over the city and the mountains, but it got cold at night. Then we had a room at the back of the hostel, with less of a view but was cosier. The... More

The Kuska Guest House is a great option for travellers who don't want to stay in a trashy party hostel. The rooms are very nice and always clean. The view from the breakfast room is fantastic. The showers are generally pretty hot and the lady who runs the place is one of the nicest hosts you'll come across when travelling... More

This place was great and exactly as we expected based on reading previous review and price paid. This a great boutique hotel. It is basic but has all the creature comforts and a lovely friendly staff. Location: The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk up hill from the main square. The uphill walk is worth it, as the...
