Plaza de Armas Cusco Hotel
Ranked #23 of 171 Hotels in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is perfectly situated on a corner of Plaza de las Armas. Many of the historic churches and Inca ruins are within a couple of blocks. Good restaurants are also within safe walking distance. We stayed in room 309 near the rear of the hotel. The noise from the popular square was almost negligible except during the Corpus Christi festival which only happens once a year at the beginning of June. The room was basic but very clean. The included breakfast was a bit lacking. Cold cereal and sliced cold cuts and cheese were the choices. But the breakfast room has seats on a balcony overlooking the square providing a wonderful overview. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is coca tea in the lobby to help with altitude sickness. We also spied an oxygen bottle behind the reception area. They are well versed in helping guests through any altitude symptoms they may have. We would stay there again except during the Corpus Christi festival. A hotel off the square during that time would be better.

First the positives. The hotel is located on the main square in Cusco and so the location is good. Second, the showers are hot and water is plentiful. Now the negatives: we had a room over the street and there was a disco playing loud music all night. Dogs barked. To make matters worse, our room was over a very busy street and the honking rarely paused. There were mosquitos in our room. And when we had breakfast, my wife saw the waiter wash out the cups without soap. She tried to ignore the hair on the buffet table. We decided we couldn´t take it and checked out.

Stayed a few days here and really LOVED the location right no the square! Arrived on Xmas day and all kinds of Indian parades going on. You will not see that 4 blocks back.

Many of the other places are quiet a walk and at high Andean altitude you do NOT walk to be doing that.

Location: In the center of Plaza de Armas. Very convenience to find food, to shop, to sight seeing. Because the hotel is located in the heart of the city, so I could hear some traffic on the street, but it's acceptable, cause I like to see the view from my room.

Hotel provides heater which is good during my stay (Christmas).
Breakfast is ok.
Service: I asked the hotel for the possibility of early breakfast at 5.20am and hotel arranged it for me that was very nice and kind.
Room Decoration: Modern and clean.

The newly renovated and very modern hotel Plaza de Armas in Cusco was a great experience. The room had everything and the best part was the friendly staff especially Madelaine who went out of their way to be accomodating and all were a complete pleasure. What a difference from the old Plaza de Armas...RECOMMENDED COMPLETELY!!

Room Tip: book the king superior......the suite if you want a lounge area and an oversized jacuzzi
