Casa Andina Standard Cusco San Blas
Ranked #52 of 171 Hotels in Cusco
Reviewed August 19, 2013

First time visiting Peru and didn't have a clue what to do or how to get around but the hotel staff were an invaluable resource for us. They are very helpful-- provided directions, secured a taxi, wake up calls in the morning. Rooms are comfy (the beds come with plenty of pillows and blankets) , clean, with pleasant Andean decor. A nice sanctuary in the middle of bustling Cusco. There is also a complimentary breakfast served each orning.

A well provided for mid range hotel in Cuzco, this hotel is located in the San Blas district of Cuzco. From the hotel you can oversee most of Cuzco, the valley and enjoys views of the majestic Salkantay, the patron, snow covered mountain of Cuzco. 2 blocks from the hotel lies the church and square of San Blas, around which you can find many shops and restaurants, including Sacha Papa, one of Cuzco’s best restaurants. From the hotel it’s a 5 -10 minute walk to all of Cuzco’s attractions, such as its main square, best restaurants, museums, the Coricancha temple, etc.
The rooms are well equipped and spacious, most with a beautiful view over Cuzco and the valley. Breakfast is included and OK, however, there are no other meals served. The staff at the reception is very friendly and hot coca tea in large thermoses is always ready for one to fill up a cup or thermos and get by the altitude sickness that’s always lurking in one’s head.

Dear guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience at Classic San Blas.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Cusco. As you mention, we are located near some tourist places which our guests find convenient since they can visit the city on foot with no difficulty.

Likewise, we are pleased our staff was able to assist you all the time you spent with us, as well as provided you coca tea to prevent altitude sickness. Regarding the restaurant at our Classic hotels in Cusco we only offer breakfast since there are so many close options our guests can enjoy outside.

We hope we can welcome you back at any of our hotels.

Best regards,

The Casa Andina Team

This is a wonderful hotel in the picturesque San Blas area of Cusco. Not only are the rooms comfortable (great beds), modern, and stylish with lovely Andean touches, but the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were always ready to carry a bag or provide directions. They set up an excellent tour of the city for us with transportation to and from the hotel. Breakfast runs from 5-10 to accomodate all schedules. The morning we had to eat at 5 to make our train to Machu Picchu, we were shocked to find the dining room filled with fellow explorers. Finally, while a short trek gets you to the Plaza de Armas, the hotel allows you to explore easily the arty San Blas area, and it's only a block away from the delicious and atmospheric Pacha Papa restaurant.

This hotel was booked by out tour operator and was our home base for a Machu Pichu excursion. Well located hotel, comfortable accommodations and friendly staff. There are some rooms that are nicer that others and offer better views. Our second time around we had a larger room with a lovely view.

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for. It's quiet, clean, within walking distance of the Plaza, affordable, and had a great and polite staff. We stayed here all four nights we were in Cusco and by the end it felt like home! I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here for two days before doing the Inca Trail and for one night afterward. The first room was small but servicable. The last night we got updraded to the penthouse suite, which was very comfortable. The rooms were all clean, and the staff were all helpful. Most of them spoke English very well. It's only about ten minutes from the Plaza, so it was convenient and also quiet. I'd stay here again.

Very cute modest hotel. Staff is very friendly and facility is clean and cute (i.e. it is not a huge hotel with lots of amenities, but it is a medium sized, local and beautifully kept hotel).

Plus: clean, low key, friendly staff, board game area, close to plaza de las armas, affordable
Cons: the breakfast that is included in the rate is so-so (clean, but not many choices and not the best quality foods).
Overall: YES I would definitely recommend this hotel!!
