Prisma Hotel
Ranked #92 of 170 Hotels in Cusco
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This hotel was booked as part of my Inca Trail package. I stayed for three nights and had three very comfortable nights sleep and all the rooms I saw were very clean and comfortable. The Wifi was occasionally a little patchy but mostly worked well. Breakfast had a much better variety than other hotels in the same price bracket. Location is ideal for getting to the centre of Cuzco.

We were on a G tour and were booked into the Prisma before and after Machu Pichu. This spot is close for getting around the hi lights of Cuzco. It was a very safe,clean and serviceable spot with friendly and helpful staff. The WIFI was on par for the course in Peru and the staff always was able to get it going again. Beds, bedding and showers were great. The hidden gem was the dining room had awesome meals at a reasonable price for lunch and supper while the free breakfast was always OK.

Room Tip: Try and request a room off the street side.

I wonder if this hotel does any business outside of its G Adventures business. First room was truly awful - noisy, small, plywood walls. Better room after our Trek, but definitely would never return on our own. Convenient location, that's about the best I can give this place...

Prisma hotel staff are really helpful. The rooms are a decent size and are clean. They will do your laundry in 24hours for 6sol a kilo. Brekfast is basic but fine. there is an onsite bar and restaurant for convenience. It is located close to pharmacies and supermarket and within a 10min walk to the main square. THe wifi is fickle and worked best near the main reception area and not at all in the room

Room Tip: Try and get a room that doesnt face onto Matera street itself as the windows are not double glazed a...

This hotel was included in the GAdventures trip my friend and I booked with the Inca Trail as the main element and this hotel was where we were before and after the Trail.

The twin rooms are adequate. However the room I booked for myself to have some space from my mate after three nights on the trail in a tent with him had no external windows and therefore light.

The only thing that really irritated me was the poor quality of the Wifi which I rarely picked up on my Smartphone or tablet in every location in the hotel I was in. I would recommend that GAdventures need to work with the hotel to improve this.

Nothing fancy. This hotel was included at the start and end of my G Adventures Inca Trail hike plus I added an extra day at the end to spend an extra full day in Cusco. This city is extremely noisy so most of the noise came from outside the hotel. Street traffic, garbage trucks, car horns and alarms, dogs, shouting and not to be overlooked, the massive steel doors that guard the alley to the adjacent parking lot that are opened and closed with all the subtlety of a rail switching yard. Those doors were right outside my window so were particularly noticeable.

Having said all that, I found the facilities quite comfortable though the stairs were a bit more challenging after the hike. The beds are simple, a matress on a platform with heavy blankets and TWO pillows. Breakfast was limited but could be augmented with eggs at at cost of 1Sole each - a bargain. Front desk staff were helpful and cheery showing appreciation for my limited use of Spanish - a simple 'por favor' and 'gracias' can carry a lot of weight. And being Canadian I managed the occasional 'lo siento' as well.

The location is pretty good too, a very short walk from a major supermarket (Mega) and less than a 10 minute walk to all the facilities of the main square, and 3 blocks from the train and bus terminals. WiFi was serviceable if a little flakey but staff were more than willing to re-boot the router if you encountered difficulties. I suspect they will replace it in the coming weeks.

This is NOT a resort hotel. It is a pleasant, functional hotel, reasonably well located in an area with all the essential services.

We stayed here as part of a tour with G Adventures and must say the hotel was pleasant and all the staff where very friendly. The issue however is that as after a 4 day trek doing the inca trial when we needed sleep we where woken by noise in the corridors. The doors on the hotel offer no sound proofing and as a result you can hear everything at the other side of the door.

Location wise you are near the main square which is well worth a visit with lots of good restaurants located their.

Room Tip: low floor room as no lift
