Saya Wasi
Ranked #40 of 412 Cusco B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 21, 2010

This is another of those special places that one is difficult to recommend as I do not want it to be booked up next time I visit.
Perched above San Blas, access is gained by walking up some steep steps but the reward is the spectacular views of Cuzco,there are three self contained apartments above which the owner Marta lives who also owns the Retama restaurant in the Plaza de Armas,which is also worth a visit.

It was the best place where we stayed during our trip in Peru. The rooms were so comfortable, in felt like a home. The only disadvantage were all the stair you have to climb if you walk from the plaza to the appartment. But if you are only a bit sportive it is no problem. I you ever want to visit cusco, stay in Saya Wasi! the view you have from your appartment is stunning!!

Transport arranged from airport by Saya Wasi
Good advice on acclimatising to 3,300m altitude! Courteous & helpful staff.
Room was large, light, airy with fantastic views over Cusco. Furnished well, tastefully decorated, self catering was possible.
Location quiet, away from traffic, about 20min walk to Plaza de Armas, wonderful centre of Cusco. Excellent restaurant la Retama recommended, (can deliver food to Saya Wasi if you want to stay in) with its live traditional music & dancing. Many other restaurants, bars, music etc. available. Information provided for shops, market, gym & many agencies catering with trail walking, backpacking, all outdoor sports, including Machu Picchu of course.
Best features come from the wonderful location & the attitude of the staff, nothing is too much trouble.
Only slight drawbacks the uphill walk from the Cusco centre at altitude & the need to pump water when the pressure drops but that is provided for.
