Piccola Locanda
Ranked #38 of 477 Specialty Lodging in Cusco
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I cannot reccommend this place enough! Piccola Locanda is the perfect place to stay while visiting Cusco! The decor is so open, yet warm, and the staff was always so friendly, and helpful. The location is perfect, and the main Plaza is only about a 5 minute walk down, with a 10 minute walk back up! :)
We enjoyed many cups of cocoa tea on the balcony that overlooks the entire city, and the main Plaza de Armas, and our room La Biblioteca also had spectacular views from the open windows.
Don't miss out on the Italian restaurant that is attached to the hostel common area, it's the best Italian we've had!
We cannot wait to come back to Peru, and will definitely be staying at Piccola Locanda again.

Room Tip: La Biblioteca was amazing, also stayed in Cecelia, with an attached bathroom/shower, but the ambianc...

We stayed 3 night total at Piccola Locanda (2 before and 1 after a Machu Piccu Trek) and really enjoyed our time. The location only a few minutes from the main plaza can't be beat - yes it's uphill and requires a quick rest when first adjusting to altitude - but this provides for the fantastic views from the roof! The staff was very helpful and held our main bags for us while we were away. Highly recommended.

Super lovely bed & breakfast accomodation, real family run feel to the place. Small and cosy bedroom with private bathroom and very comfortable beds with extra blankets if needed. Really handy location with a spectacular view across the city from the terrace. The hotel has a lovely Italian restaurant which is really handy and serves delicious homecooked food. Overall a super friendly place and hopefully somewhere i will return in the future.....

Piccola Locanda was an adorable little hotel. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the roof deck had an amazing view day and night. It was also within steps of the Plaza de Armas. However - if you are in a wheelchair or not in good shape, getting to the Piccola Locanda would be slightly difficult as there are many steep steps to climb to get there. Other than that - loved loved loved the place.

Piccola Locanda is a very Nice place to stay: nice beds, accomodations, a beautiful view on its terrace and very clean place. But, be aware: if you go by car with your luggage, ask the driver to let you on the church above the Plaza del Armas because the property is in a higher place.

I stayed several nights at Piccola Locanda and its just like staying with family. The family that owns the home & their staff are wonderful and helpful and will provide information and tips for the area. The building is beautifully decorated and and has a cute patio. They overlook the city and you can get great pics from the terrace above. They even kept our luggage when we took an overnight trip to Macchu Picchu. I was impressed with how clean it was & how wonderful they treated us!

Room Tip: The can arrange taxis for you

I stayed for 5 nights in this hostel. The whole building is decorated with great taste and colors. The place feels very welcoming and comfy. I was greeted with a good mate de coca (for those who are prone to altitude sickness). I had a small bedroom with private bathroom ("Noe"), nicely decorated with personality (just like the rest of the hotel). The room was absolutely clean. No problem to get hot water in the shower at any time of the day. Small radiator provided (the days are warm but the nights can get cold, it is indeed very useful). Good wifi signal. The staff was very warm, welcoming and professional at the same time (whomever the person was at the front desk), and I always got all the answers to my questions. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of good and homemade food and juices available, all being served with smile and a good mood. The laundry service was also very efficient (pay by kilo, get your clothes washed and dried in the same day). No problem to keep your bags if you check out but still want to wander around the city. I spent 5 wonderful days in Cusco and it has a lot to do with this wonderful accommodation. I would not hesitate to go back there should I return to Cusco.
