“Nice accommodation, good location”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Near the Plaza de Los Armes and important sites, but not crazy expensive. Comfortable rooms, ok breakfast. When we left to go to Machu Picchu, hotel staff let us leave most of our luggage in the room, which they moved to storage while awaiting our return--and luggage in the new room when we returned. Couldn't ask for better service or friendlier people.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

It's close enough to the plaza de Armas to go walking, and distant enough to be quiet in the night. We had to ask for hot water sometimes, and only ones it was barely tepid. Rooms are comfortable, and the staff is friendly.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on a tour and by far the nicest place on the tour itself. This hotel is tastefully decorated and about a 10 minute walk (hardly uphill) from the plaza del armas...far enough away you don't get annoying people walking by. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options and lots of fresh fruit...yummy! Our room was quite tiny, but in between a stairwell and an empty garden space, so we never heard any noises! (308 maybe?) It was definitely the most quiet hotel we stayed in during our 10 day Peru experience. (Nothing like a Hilton in America, but for Peruvian standards well above average.)

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room because rooms on the first floor can get noisy due to people coming in and...

Hotel is very clean and staff was great. They really went out of their way to be of service. Location is a little bit out of the way but what I got in return was worth it. Breakfast buffet is good. They stowed my bag while I did the Inca Trail. When I returned they met me with a smile and a "welcome back!" It was very warm felt when they called me by my name. One little downside is that the public areas are very hard surfaces so noise carries down the hallways.

Mama Sara is a lovely hotel. The buffet breakfast was nice, and the staff were very helpful. It's about a 5min walk from the Plaza de Armas (main square) which means it's very quiet. The beds were super comfortable with very soft sheets. There's also free wifi and a computer for guests to use.

Agree with most reviews regarding location bit of a hike but easy to get taxis to & from...we liked the staff really nice & thank god they helped us locate our lost luggage (cause we couldn't speak fluent spanish LAN lost luggage Lima would just keep hanging up on us). Rooms clean & ok...were not too fussy as just happy to have a clean comfy bed for the night....brekkie ok just the usual SA continental....overall good place to stay
