Hotel Warari

Check in was nice and easy here. However, they do take a photocopy of your passport. I was given a really tiny room with no A/C, hair drier and a dead TV. I easily heard the bass/music in my room coming from the restaurant/bar next door. This was room 309.

I went downstairs to express my concerns and was immediately upgraded to a room with 2 double beds, a fridge and a working TV! This room did face the main road though. Rooms 307-310 are on the back side of the hotel, though next to the restaurant. Rooms 401-404 (on any level, so the same goes for 201-204) face the busy street. Traffic does die down come night time which is good, though you still get to hear the odd horn going off all times of day or night.

Breakfast is basic. I had fruit, a runny yogurt and cereal every day here. Coffee is not fresh and you have to make your own with the provided Nescafe; not nice!

On my last day here, my flight from Cusco to Lima was not until 4.45pm. I asked for a late checkout and was given it, though for a fee of $40USD. I believe I stayed in the hotel until 3pm that afternoon.

I found the staff overall helpful and friendly.

We booked this hotel through a travel agency in Lima. We had decided to go to Machu Picchu and there was not enough notice to book through a tour company, so we just booked it ourselves. (which ended up being a great time)

When our ride from the airport dropped us off, he took us to the wrong hotel. It was like half a block away so it ended up being fine.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms were very nicely decorated and very clean. The bathrooms were amazing compared to our hotel in Lima, and the shower had the highest water pressure Ive seen in years. The had a breakfast which was good but was not anything special.

The water went out for a brief period of time which was kind of annoying, but not that big of an issue.

If we had known about this place beforehand, we may have spent more time in Cusco.

stayed here as part of our intrepid tour. internet and printing (through the receiption) is free, however the wifi is quite sketchy if not in the lobby. Washing was cheap at about $2/kg. about 10-15min walk from the centre of town. while it was good to stretch our legs the altitude and lack of oxygen certainly took its toll.

The rooms are big but basic. some have fridges, ours didn't. problems with toilets flushing and getting hot water. Beds too hard and not comfy, and pillows too soft and just as bad. At least there was enough blankets to keep us warm. No real natural light in some of the rooms, our window opened into a cavity that was covered by opaque corrigated plastic. the bathroom exhaust fan blew into here too.

Breakfast is included but TERRIBLE. fruit was off, eggs were gross and the milk revolting. we had to go elsewhere for this meal.

if you're on a budget and aware of the hotel limitations then its' probably OK but I wouldn't recommend it.

Stayed here for a few nights on the way to Machu picchu. The place provides great storage system if you go away for a few days. you just leave everything in your room and they look after it and it's ready in your new room when you come back. Place is really nice and clean, but the highlight is the friendly helpful staff, who went the extra mile!

This hotel is four and a half blocks from the main square, this may not seem too far but the walk is all uphill to the square. The is a large artisan market just down the road and there is a large Supermarket on Av. Sol, about 5 minutes away. The hotel breakfast was quite good with a few hot choices, but the bread for me was poor quality. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable with very heavy blankets, however the pillows were very poor.
The wi fi is free and worked well enough on the lower floors. The usual problem with noise in Peruvian hotels was also very evident here. If you are on the front of the hotel traffic noise is a big problem, there is no double glazing or decently sealed windows. Overall the hotel is quite good, but with a little attention to details could be a lot better.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you want to sleep.

We stayed at the Warari for three nights before heading to the Sacred Valley and again on our way back to Lima. The hotel is near the bottom of Avenida Sol, so it's a bit of a trek to get to the Plaza de Armas (10-15 minute walk depending on your energy level). Staff were exceptionally helpful, and a coupld of the front desk staff spoke excellent English. A couple of times we opted to take a taxi "up the hill" and for 4 soles it was a bargain.

There is an artisan's market a block away (out to door and to the left) and a grocery store on Avenida Sol about 3 minutes away. Lots of travel agencies on Avenida Sol to book day trips and prices quite reasonable.

Breakfast was very good here with eggs each morning prepared differently each day (boiled, fried, scrambled), brown and white toast, lots of fruit, cheese, meat and pastries. Coffee, like most smaller hotels, is instanct. Good selection of teas and very charming staff in the dining room.

We would stay here again.

Nice new hotel. We stayed as part of a tour of Peru- stayed on 2 separate occasions, 2 nights each time. Our first room was really big and the cold was not a problem as it had an outside window. However, our second room was smaller (stills good size) and was really cold at night since there was no window that got sunlight. You could ask for a heater but it was still cold. There is free wifi in the hotel but it did not work in either of our rooms- they were on the top/5th floor. It worked in the lobby. I think it worked from the 3rd floor down. Breakfast was good for Peru standards- bread, jam, eggs, scones, fruit, tea/coffee etc. Location was fine- It's about a 10 minute walk to the central square. There are good markets right beside the hotel. A taxi costs 3 or 4 soles to the central square. There's not many restaurants around the hotel but if you walk towards the centre there are loads there. The area is nice and the walk is fine. The staff were nice.
