I stayed one night and move right after, the room was comfortable but the place is like a hounted house, nobody at the front desk, no help with accommodations, if you dont reserve through their travel agency in Lima and pay for tours you would be totally ignored. Avoid.

From the moment we arrived at Casa Elena, we were made to feel at home. Elena not only provided our accommodations in Cusco but picked us up at the airport and made all of our arrangements and reservations for our visits to Machu Picchu and lake Titicaca. She also arranged for a private tour of the Sacred Valley. She can... More

I am so glad I was set up with Casa Elena through my hostal in Lima - Elena and her staff were most helpful. First the basics - it's well located, just a few minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas and even closer to San Blas church (also a must visit). The rooms are comfortable and clean; the premises...

I stayed at Casa Elena for about 2 weeks in July and August of 2015. Let me start by saying the owner Elena is amazing, she knows the ins and outs of the area and is able to make bookings and travel arrangements for her guests. The hotel is clean and comfortable with a friendly staff. They offer a complementary... More

I purchased a tourist package through Casa Elena, which included accommodations for 5 nights, and tours through Cusco, Machu Picchu, and many other interesting sites. Casa Elena arranged it all. I did not lift a finger. My experience, in one word, was INCREDIBLE. Mr. Medina, the manager, and the staff at Casa Elena was very attentive, and clearly dedicated to... More

I have previously stayed in Casa Elena a couple of times and find its location is very good and place has charm. On this occasion, however, I was asked to pay for two nights reservation by bank transfer in advance of my visit from Lima. ok no problem. Then when we arrived last night from the Sacred Valley we were... More

Thanks to the passion given by the director Elena, the place is a real paradise! She takes care of every small details and she is very helpful! I would not find other ways to recommend the place and to meet her if you have the opportunity to visit Cusco. Moreover, she organizes different treks to discover the wonders of Peru,... More

(*You need to pay extra for the heater) It's right on one of the connecting streets to Plaza des Armas of Cuzco. The interior garden it's the heart of this cute hostel. Rooms are ok as well,but can be cleaner. Breakfast... More

Casa Elena is THE REASON I will return to Cuzco. If it were not for this, I'd likely keep visiting other new places. Her grace is that of a curandera for travelers. The location of the hotel is almost perfect for access to key places. Jacks is down the street. Laundry is affordable and fast. The casual atmosphere is to... More

Casa Elena was our "home" base for 6 nights while on a 2 week trip to Peru. Our stay was in the beginning of the trip for two nights, a night in the middle and three nights at the end of the trip. Casa Elena is a warm and friendly establishment and Elena and Yves treat their guests like family.... More
