Profits from the hotel go to help youth in Cuzco. Each room is named after a student. Located within a short distance from 3 squares including the Plaza de Armas, it’s close to many restaurants and a few museums. The front staff is very good. They speak decent English. There is a restaurant within so you can get breakfast, not included with the room, or other meals. Breakfast was very good. The rooms are located around a courtyard. Some rooms are private, some share a bath. The courtyard is a pleasant place to relax. Most of the rooms seem not to have outside windows. The rooms at the front of the hotel seem to be the largest. They have windows, but the issue is that they open onto a busy, noisy street, so we shut them at night, and then it’s a bit stuffy. The room we had was large, a double and 2 singles. It was comfy, and my only complaint was the noise from the street, but we preferred to have the window.

Room tip: Larger rooms on the Main Street are noisy.

Ninos Hotel Meloc is one of 3 of their hotels and it is a great place to stay. The woman who started the hotel wanted to help children from impoverished families and so she started a school for children from pre-K to high school. You can take a tour and learn more about how some of the profits are benefitting children. The rooms are spacious, the staff is friendly and they go out of their way to be helpful. We enjoyed breakfast out in the courtyard. There's a lovely little gift shop where you can buy locally made handicrafts. A great value hotel.

Stayed 4 nights pre Inca trail and 2 after in a double room, shared bathroom.

The good - the hotel is absolutely beautiful and all rooms are centered around a central courtyard. Rooms are nicely decorated and the water pressure and temperature in the showers was excellent. Great location too.

The rest -
The internet was really mixed, i regularly struggled to get much more than 750kb download speed.
Our first downstairs room (we asked to change eventually) was really small - we barely had room for our bags around the bed and there was nowhere to unpack into. The doors and windows opened onto the courtyard so there wasn’t much privacy. The shared bathroom was two toilets and one shower. My real issue here is these toilets were also used by those having breakfast or meetings in the courtyard plus hotel/restaurant staff. Trying to shower and get ready in the morning whilst sharing facilities with diners and staff, I wouldn’t expect from some of the basic hostels we’ve also stayed at on our trip. There were two showers upstairs you could use to avoid the wait as there was only one shower but this is still not great.

I’d suggest bringing ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper, the hotel door bell rings out through the hotel at all hours and if downstairs you’ll be woken early by the cafe setting up.

We had dinner there once which was nice and breakfast also once. We had lots of problems with service at breakfast, requesting things multiple times and them just never arriving. Waiting 25 mins another time to order so headed elsewhere. Staff were hard working but perhaps not just enough of them.

We found a lovely cafe up the road we went to in the end every day to utilise the good internet and avoid the wait.

Our rooms were upstairs were much better so request a room there if you can. The rooms with multiple beds seemed very well sized too. I’m not sure I’ve ever requested to change room before but the staff were very understanding and helpful with the move. They also stored our bags for us whilst trekking.

In all, the hotel supports a really excellent cause which is wonderful but things do need a bit of fine tuning and I’m not sure I’d recommend going for a shared bathroom, particularly if downstairs.

We landed at the Ninos hotel after a very very long journey that included missed flights and lost bags and it was the perfect place to be. The staff was very helpful. The hotel itself is very nice. I was told that it was an old house that got converted into some nicely appointed rooms. We were welcomed with coca tea to help with altitude adjustment. The food in the restaurant is good but not local food. Its location is great and is a quick walk to most must-see places in cusco.
