“Exceeded our expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

What a neat hidden gem! It's a little tricky to find but we'll worth it. There is a security guard who takes care of the street, look out for his booth and he will take you there. The place is very secure and modern, yet inviting. The staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. We were greeted with coca tea and given a map with specific directions on where we wanted to go. The owner really went out of her way for us and always had a smile (even at 5am the next morning when our taxi arrived). The room was beautiful! Soft mattress, warm and clean bedding, individual lights, cable TV, microwave, sink, cups, basic cutlery, mini fridge, superb bathroom with lovely HOT water and beautiful fixtures. Wifi was a little hit and miss in the room but worked fine outside the room. Plaza de Arms is about a 10 minute walk down the hill. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the San Blas area.

Three of us stayed here back in October at the beginning of a whirlwind South America trip. This was the best place we stayed! We did tons of research before booking any of our accommodations, and it definitely paid off!!

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Elizabeth - who is by far the nicest and best hostess of all time!! She sat us down, helped with our bags, gave us tea and let us relax. She explained where everything was, the best ways to get around town, and told us that she was available at any time in case we needed her. AND SHE MEANT IT! She was fabulous!

The first floor was beautiful, nice furniture, huge flate screen tv, good computer with internet access and a printer. Perfect.

Our room was on the 3rd floor. Gorgeous. Spacious. 3 beds, a safe, a little kitchenette complete with a sink, microwave, fridge, kettle, and tea and tea cups. So cute! We used it all! Nice, clean beds with warm & comfortable comforters. The cleanest of South America. Our bathroom was small, but clean. Nice shower with HOT water! The towels were amazing, super fluffy!!

Then, one night I accidentally left a bag at the restaurant where we ate dinner, and Elizabeth helped us call them and came outside with us to get us in a cab ASAP to get back there. She was so great.

We also left for a 4 day Inca Trail trek and they stored our bags safely for us while we were gone. We were so impressed. What a fabulous place. Walking distance to everything (not that Cuzco is that big).

The breakfast is included, but simple. I was totally fine with that though. Nice buns/breads with jam/butter, coffee/teas and juice.

Highly Recommend!!!

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you already know you're affected by altitude sickness, maybe request...

The place offer very good value for money, with free wifi in all rooms and cable tv wtih lots of movie channels...free use of the kitchen and a very friendly owner ready to hel you with whatever you ask. the only problem is the distance to the plaza de armes, the main part of cuzco, is about 20 minute walk uphill!!!!....or just 3 soles (about a dollar) for a taxi.

So if you do not mind the walk or to pay for the taxi and you want a very quite place to stay taht is safe (I left credit cards, laptop and money in the room and nothing was touched) this is the place to be all for 20 dollars a night!

P.S do not use the travel agent that is offered to you by the owner, is not that they do not deliver what they promise, but they try to charge you over the odds for they service (for example a bus ride to the pisachu train station for the machu picchu train was quoted as 50 dollars return, when you can do it for 20 dollars!!!!)

My family and I went to Peru - Cuzco last month. We were picked up from the airport for free. Being in hotel made us to feel at home. We had clean rooms everyday an.
/d also breakfast at anytime (even when we went to MacchuPicchu It was 2:30am). Owners are friendly and helpful, they always can assist you and giving you advice about Cuzco. It like being at home

They have a kitchen and fridge.
Including continental breakfast, free pick-up from the airport.
I wish to stay there more.
Loved everything!!!!
