“7/10 experience for 5 nights”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stayed for 5 nights in the family room, interrupted by the Inca trail which meant that we stored our luggage, without any problems. The room is very large, on 2 levels, with one double bed. The quality of some of the beds is on the lower end with some of the mattresses worn out. The blankets are heavy, but we had that at other places, too. They provided a heater (included) which was really necessary as it was very cold. The stairs up to the second level are without a handrail. The shower head needs maintenance, it s also quite hard to keep the water inside the curtain which is too small and therefore not covering up properly. The room is located uphill, which means you ll have good training before the Inca trail. The staff is attentive to any requests. The breakfast is served in a nice area: 2 big yummy bread rolls, 2 fried eggs or muesli, jam, margarine, fresh juice, tea and coffee. Simpel, but sufficient, not for the breakfast enthusiast. Location is 10-15 min walk slightly uphill from Plaza de Armas, moderately noisy with lots of dogs barking at night. WiFi was working in our room, free parking possible in front of the hotel, tiny old TV, free airport shuttle. Overall a 7/10 experience for us.

This eclectic hotel has bits of art stashed everywhere from outdoor gardens, indoor altars and hand carved relief paintings in the third floor bedrooms. The breakfast was ample and well served by gracious staff. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. Quiet rooms even on street side. Two thumbs up!

This hotel in Cuzco is at five/seven minutes walking from the beautiful Plaza de Armas. Rooms aren't huge but very nice in wood style.Bathroom is not fantastic but water is hot (sometimes in Peru' I found cold shower). In the hall there is a pc for the costumers and wi-fi is avaible. Mate and cafe for free all day. Very good and taste breakfast, bred was super!

The best part was the breakfast and the friendly staff. But the price is same as other hotels on the area on a better location, for example: for $10 we stayed at another hotel in front of Plaza de Armas which is the prime location!
Our room was very uncomfortable since it has a big sky light on top of the bed, which allow too much light to go into the room. It´s not possible to sleep in on a bright room like that, nor even relax during the day, since the room gets too hot.
Also, the bed is full size, which I consider small for a couple. But the worst part of the bed was that sqweeks way too much and too loud every time we moved. At the same time there is a lot of noise coming in from the other bedrooms and from the hallway. You are able to hear everything (flushing toilets, conversations, etc.)
The location, it's at the end of the Saphi street which is not part of the touristic Cuzco area, next to a bus station. This hostal it´s about 15 minutes walk to Plaza de Armas.
I was thankful we have to stay there for one night only.

First, the wifi here is blazing fast. It was awesome.

Second, the staff is really lovely and helpful. Their English wasn't spectacular, but my Spanish is good enough to get by, so it wasn't an issue for me.

The rooms we stayed in (we were there twice) were very nice, clean, not huge, but pleasantly decorated. The hot water was very consistent and the water pressure was phenomenal.

Breakfast was included and included eggs, coffee, bread...the works.

My one complaint is that they charge for filtered water, but it was cheaper than at some other places we stayed.

It is a bit removed from the Plaza, but we didn't find the walk unpleasant and we didn't feel unsafe; I think it might be better, frankly, as it enables a quiet night.

Our family rented the large room with four beds. The room was not fancy but adequate. A shower and separate bath was nice for a large group. Huge room and very convenient to the main plaza, an easy 5-10 minute walk. The staff was excellent, always available and eager to help. Breakfast was simple and available after about 6am. Coffee and tea anytime. If you don't need a five star hotel, this is a great place to stay. We were also allowed to keep our bags there while on the Machu Picchu trail and get them when we returned. Barking dogs during the night were a bit annoying but overall I would stay here again.

We drove in straight from Ollantaytambo and had no reservations. We stopped to check pricing on several hotels. We found that this place was an incredible value. We've been staying in several hotels now throughout Peru. Most places have horrible plumbing, bad water pressure, water gets cold fast, inadequate ventilation, etc. But this place has a shower with really strong pressure, really hot instant water! I booked my previous hotels through the internet. As I said before, this one I did not, this one was quote as 90 soles, but they finally agreed to 75 soles for a quadruple, thats under $30 USD a day for us 4! This place is about 3-4 blocks away from the central square. It is quiet and tranquil. It is clean, doesn't smell musty or feel humid, it is very clean and staff is attentive. It includes breakfast, but I have not had it so I cant comment on it yet.

Room Tip: Ask to see room before committing and as everything here - haggle the price.
