Los Apus Hotel & Mirador
Ranked #17 of 170 Hotels in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We stayed at Los Apus from June 13 through June 18 and then an extra night after the four-day Inca Trail hike. The hotel is a converted Inca temple and is beautifully decorated with some original Inca artifacts. Reservations and questions prior to our trip were quickly answered and arranged. Their daily rates were very reasonable and the reason we decided to stay for five full nights to acclimatize prior to our Inca Trail adventure. The hotel manager, Sr. Luis, and the rest of the front desk staff, were very helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. The breakfast server, Victor Hugo, always made sure our order of eggs was cooked to our liking and made sure preferred items were available. The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast with eggs made to order. There was also 24-hour set up of coca tea, which really helped us combat altitude sickness. We had two different rooms, both with balconies, which we loved despite the cold temperatures. The rooms were cold at times as the central heating did not appear to be working during our stay. The hotel staff provided us with space heaters during our stay, which did the job of warming the room and our Floridian blood. The bathrooms had great water pressure and hot water and were always well maintained. The rooms were on the small side but we saw bigger ones without the balcony. We loved the location in the San Blas neighborhood. It was close to everything yet away from the noise and hustle of the main square. The main square was a quick 7- minute walk. There were plenty of convenience stores, restaurants and laundry places nearby. The hotel kept our bags and valuables while we went on the Inca Trail. They have a secure safe in the reception area and we did not hesitate to leave our valuables and excess currency with them. When we got back, we were received with the key for the same room we had vacated 4 days earlier. Our luggage was already in our room. This was really a nice touch, as we just wanted to shower and collapse in bed after the trail and Machu Picchu. All in all, I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Cusco.

Small boutique hotel in a very nice area of Cusco, perfect sleep, the bed feature douvets (first time in South America!!). Welcoming staff and beautiful rooms, some with original Inka walls! Althought it had a big variety, breakfast was nothing to write home about. Highly recommended though!

I stayed at Los Apus from June 21st through June 26th in the morning. What I found was an extraordinary and polite staff, a delicious breakfast every morning and a nice and beautifully restored old house. They offer also free wi-fi. My room was spacious and kept clean every day, and every time I returned from a tour, usually late in the afternoon, I always found my room (209) in immaculate condition, clean and tidy. The bed was extremely comfortable. They have hot water also, a must in Cuzco. The views from the terrace are beautiful also, specially in the morning. And the location is ideal (San Blas neighborhood), just few blocks away from the main attractions in Cuzco city.

I recommend Los Apus as the hotel to stay in Cusco hands down. Peru can be a bit frustrating sometimes but Los Apus is always on top of things.

The location is great- not right on top of all of the touristy things but still within walking distance of everything.

The rooms were very comfortable. We loved the balconies and it was great having hot water (not sure that all of the hotels do in Cusco).

The staff was awesome. They're a bit reserved but they go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay. One of the friends with me was having a birthday while we were there and they had a wonderful cake for him that day.

Breakfast is included and it's large and delicious. And the constant supply of Coca tea is a nice touch for help with altitude sickness.

And they have a rooftop patio with a great view. I think that sometimes they serve food but we were able to bring our own drinks up and enjoy it.

Room Tip: Second floor with balconies have a great view

Excellent staff, nice architecture, good breakfast, free wi-fi. They held our baggage while we are on the trip to Machu Picchu and they prepared an anniversary surprise for my birthday.

Stayed here 1 night before and after (2 total) Machu Picchu trip with a group of friends. The hotel itself is in a nice location on a quiet street a short walk from the main square. My single room was pretty average and outdated amenity-wise, but comfortable enough for rest at night. Breakfast options were average as well, fresh eggs were a plus however. One annoying thing aspect was a window of my room opening into the main hallway, which was loud whenever other guests were coming and going. Otherwise an overall positive experience!

Stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed the hotel. It is close to the main square and Only one side of the hotel faces the road so is nice and quiet. It is owned by a swiss hotel chain so is very clean and tidy. We had a big doubke room which had tv and storage space. Very comfy beds and big fluffy pillows and blankets, the lobby has coca tea for those feeling sick from the altitude. Check in is 9am and check out is 8am so that is a bit odd. But front desk was nice and helpful. We had a young lady help us out most days and she had great English and was polite and helpful. Not sure what her name was but she was there 12 hours a day. Breakfast is very light on but more than adequate. It is either in the lobby or in level four. You can get eggs made for you if cereal is not enough. All in all had lots of character and really enjoyed our stay.
