The house is very cute, decor is minimalistic, and has a very nice relaxed vibe. We stayed at room #1, which seemed to be the biggest, and it is as per the photos. It has a fantastic view! And I love the claraboia in the bathroom providing natural light even at night. Another nice detail is the hot bottle for... More

This is a beautiful family run place and the tower rooms overlooking the city are amazing. You can sit on the terrace overlooking the town and have tea or breakfast and all sights are a short walk away.

We were blown away by how great this inn was. Amazing views, exceptionally friendly staff and a beautiful room surrounded by windows. The interior walls are original stone from the Inca! Breakfast every day was the BEST start to the day - freshly squeezed juice, fruit, bread with jam, eggs, tea and coffee. They took great care of our bags... More

Juan and his rooftop city-view suite were fantastic! The room was clean and comfortable, the view absolutely wonderful. Juan spoke excellent English and was a very kind and attentive host. The building is locked from the outside, but upon pressing the buzzer it was never more than a minute before we were let in, day or night. We were also... More

One of the highlights of our month-long trip to Peru, Samana Inn is perfectly located a 10 minute stroll from the central Plaza de Armas. The friendly and intelligent owners speak English and are full of great advice. Our double room had a super-comfy bed and an amazing hydrotherapy shower with hot water any time. We headed off on the... More

Attentive, helpful and very friendly staff. Special mention to Juan, the owner, who is probably one of the best hoteliers we have ever met in our extensive travels! He is friendly, knowledgeable and truly cares. Samana Inn is close to the center of town. Convenient to restaurants and sights. Extremely comfy bed and great shower. We enjoyed the bright sunny...

A small family owned business that is located in the center of Cusco. It is within walking distance of the plaza de armas and all the popular restaurants. The Inn itself is well designed, comfortable and the staff is friendly and speaks English. Would recommend to anyone!

The owner was very helpful, welcoming, and interesting! He spoke very good English, so it was easy to get help and recommendations. The location was right in the middle of everything (5 minute walk from the main square). I loved the Peruvian charm of the building and the room was spacious. Breakfast was good - bread, eggs, and juice.
