“Excellent charming hotel in great location”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This was a cute little hotel, more like a bed and breakfast. Staff was excellent and service was great. Nice location too, just a block from the main plaza. The small touches like made to order breakfast and the hot water bottle to heat the bed at night were amazing. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here the first and last night of our Honeymoon. The Rumi Wasi is well kept and the service was excellent. We felt welcome as soon as we walked in the door. Because we arrived early, they served us tea as we waited for our room. Once the room was ready, we walked into a cozy room with lit candles. This was our experience both times. The location was also excellent. Once you adjust to the altitude, it is an easy walk to markets, dining and sightseeing.

This was the best hotel my husband and I have ever stayed at. It's a cute area with amazing little details and the decor is really great too. We arrived late after spending a whole day at Machu Picchu and we were welcomed warmly. We decided we were too tired to go out for dinner so we looked at the room service options and saw that the only had grilled cheese. I called the front desk and asked if they had a different menu and he brought me one right away with two joy water bottles to put in our bed. We ordered from the reasonably priced menu and only after we placed the order we realized that the food was coming from a restaurant in the main square. Guest services placed the order for us and picked it up. We didn't have to do anything but relax. It was a great experience and I highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed in Rumi Wasi in Cusco for 3 nights during our trip to Peru. This boutique hotel is just off of the Plaze de Armas, well within walking distance of the main attractions. The staff was extremly attentive with wakeup calls, breakfast and arranging taxi service. They even prenegotiated our cab rate at 8 soles or about $3 to the airport since it is quite common for the cab drivers to rip off tourists. Each room is designed differently; we stayed in a room with an upstairs balcony with a beautiful view of Cusco. If we return to Cusco, will will certainly return to Rumi Wasi.

I really liked this hotel. Rooms are situated around an interior courtyard which is quiet and well maintained. Room and bed were very comfortable with cable and flat screen tv. Modern bath and shower with plenty of hot water. Decor is tasteful with lots of local touches.

Breakfast is included and made to order off a set list. Served where and when you want it. I thought this was a great feature.

Staff is friendly.

Only drawback is the noise at all hours from barking dogs and loud people walking in the street behind the hotel. Really hard to get a decent night's sleep.

The staff were very friendly, the hotel close to central plaza, though an uphill walk home which can be a bit of a challenge for those new to the altitude. We had 2 different rooms, 1 the night before heading to machu picchu and the other the night we got back. First room (suite) was a good size though not large, but the bed was quite small. it was advertised as a queen but didn't really feel like it (we are both tall so this was a issue). The second room (classic) was very small and again with a small "queen" bed and was on the back alley. it was more noisy with a barking dog. breakfast was to order and very good. overall though i love this place.
