Located in the beautiful San Blas area in Cusco, Encantada is a little gem! I stayed here with my husband for 4 nights as part of our tour with Llama path before and after our Inca trail trek.
The hotel itself is very nice, modern and looks like it has been referbished recently. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The beds where large and soft and the pillows were also very comfortable which was great. As it was February it was cold at night and to my delight every night out bed was turned down and a hot waster bottle was waiting for us upon return! The view from Cusco at night or by day was great.
The bathroom was great, hot water pressure was perfect and complementary toiletries were Devine. I was happy to see that there was also a hair dryer in the bathroom as many of the paces we went to in South America did not have a hair dryer.
Upon arrival we were welcomed with a cocoa tea an given a voucher for free pisco sours!
The hotel also put our luggage in storage while we were on the in a trail. We felt very at ease leaving our luggage with them.
Breakfast was lovely. One day we did sleep in and the lady at the font desk called to see if we wanted breakfast because she didn't want us to miss out. I thought this was very thoughtful.
Staff were always very friendly. I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to cusco. We felt very safe here even walking back at night after having a few drinks in town. There is not always many people around on the street but there always seemed to be a police office not far away walking the streets. If you are unfit and not good with walking up hill this may not be the hotel for you. Maybe stay somewhere closer to the main square or maybe just take your time walking up the hill as this hotel was something special!
