“A wonderful hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2009

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on part of our honeymoon and it was our favorite by far. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and most speak very good English. The rooms are very nice... e stayed in the older colonial section and although it is clearly older it is still very nice. The courtyard of the hotel is also very nice and the restaurant is very good. The breakfast is wonderful and included with the price of the room, and we also ate lunch there our first day and I had the best cheeseburger I have ever had. My tip for any hotel in Peru is that apparently they do not use washcloths anywhere in the country and there were none in any hotel we stayed in. So it you shower with them like I do you need to take your own. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

I was greatly surprised with Picoaga Hotel, since our arrival to the airport the service was friendly and helpful; they went to pick us up and all the way to the hotel the driver was describing us the city and giving us good pointers of how we can get the most from our experience.
Once in the Hotel the service was great too and all the installations were spotless and well maintained.
The breakfast buffet was delicious and varied.
Overall it was a great experience.

We were climbing at 17,000' in the Andes, and ended our trip early with one of our team in hospital, so came back to Cusco early. Having literally just walked by the Picoaga, we were attracted by the smartly uniformed doorman and the great view into the courtyard and fountain. On a whim, we walked in and booked rooms for our early night back in Cusco. It was a great choice. Rooms were more modern than others in Cusco, but the courtyards, flowers, fountain, and very large breakfast buffet were great. The "old part" of the hotel looks very romantic, although the rooms seem to be getting redone (we looked through an open window and the old part of the hotel looked really great with new wood floors, meter thick masonry walls, high ceilings, colonial architecture. Very romantic. If I were to come back to Cusco with my wife, I would be looking for one of the colonial rooms for the romance factor. Staff were great.

We got to visit the Picoaga Hotel twice. 2 nights before we went to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and 1 night when we returned. They looked after our main bags so we could travel light for 3 days to Machu Picchu.
This was a great hotel in a brilliant location. It was a short walk from the main square of Cusco, with restaurants, shops etc but it was in a quiet street.
Our room was huge (we had the same room when we returned). As we had neglected to ask for a matrimonial bed, we had two king singles. But I saw a King in one of the rooms houskeeping was working on. The shower was a torrent, air conditioning worked and they had 90 odd channels on the TV. Complimentary water and chocolates too.
Breakfast was the usual cold fare (fruit, cheese, yogurt etc. Plus eggs cooked as you wanted (not poached) bacon, little sausages and more. All with a great view.
There was also a nice little Pisco Sour bar attached to the hotel.
In a lounge area there where 2 PC's that actually had high speed internet available free of charge.
We where bringing some bags down and the doorman saw us and literally ran to take the bags. The service was brilliant, from the Coca Tea on arrival to the cheery guy in the little store/kiosk.
The hotel has a nice courtyard in the older colenade section. I would definitly stay here if I ever went back to Cusco.

I stayed at the Picoaga hotel in February for 4 nights. They had a promotion going where the 3rd night was free, so the room worked out to a little over $100 per night! This is a great price for a very decent hotel. The location is fantastic and is 1 block from Plaza De Armes. There are tons of great restaurants close by and it was really safe to come back at any time. The old section of the hotel is being renovated so we had to the stay in the new section which was the only downside. But, the rooms were clean and had more than the basic amenities. The staff were really friendly and they even had a gift for me for my birthday. Overall, great experience at a very affordable price.

Very charming, extremely clean, cosy, well located and great services. This was the best choice we could have done.
Best cost x benefit you could have in Cusco.

One of the best things that happened to us on our trip to Peru was that our tour company made an error and the hotel we were originally supposed to stay in was overbooked. Luckily for us, the Picoaga Hotel was their only option, so we got moved here. Lucky for us! This really is a "hidden gem" of a hotel. The hotel is a renovated colonial Spanish mansion, and staying in something like that really helps to immerse you into your surroundings. The hotel staff was always friendly, courteous, and helpful, and spoke English well.
I've seen some people mention their disappointment with the food. I didn't eat anything here besides breakfast, but they have a nice breakfast buffet. It's not extravagant, and it is the same thing pretty much every morning. But it’s more than adequate. As for dinner, I would recommend searching some of the great food in the area. Being this close to the city center, there’s no reason to dine at the hotel the whole time.
The rooms are not huge, but they have a lot of character with some furniture that looks to be antique. Whether or not it is, I don't know, but it adds to the look of the hotel. The rooms are clean, and we had no problems with hot water.
There is a nice little lounge area that has hot tea at all times of day and night, and a couple of computers with free internet access.
The location is incredible. It's about a block and a half away from Plaza de Armas, so you couldn't ask for a much better spot.

Now, there are a couple of minor caveats, which is my only reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5.
First, there are two sections of the hotel – the colonial and the modern. The modern is newer, but from what I’ve heard/read, not all that nice. The colonial section is the way to go, no question. So, make sure you request a room in the colonial section if you stay here. Second, while you’re requesting locations, make sure to ask NOT to be put in the courtyard on the ground floor. I think there are only a handful of rooms there, but we got one of them. The courtyard echoes, and it doesn’t take much to create a real racket that resonates right into the room. The second floor has glass covering the walkway which keeps most of the noise out. On our last night we stayed in a second floor room, and it was so much quieter, we felt like it was a completely different hotel. The second floor room was also a bit nicer.
Also, we ended up being there during the National Tourism Day festival, which kept us up pretty late on the night before our trek. I don’t think it would have mattered which room, or which hotel we were in, though. The festival was pretty much citywide.

Overall, we were both very glad that we stayed at the Picoaga. It turned out to be so much better than our original hotel would have been. It’s location and character really added something to our stay in Cusco. We did take a peek at the Monasterio, which seems to be a beautiful hotel, no doubt. But for those who can’t, or don’t want to drop $500+ per night, the Picoaga offers a great alternative for a fraction of the price.
