“Great hotel in Cusco”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a great and moderately priced hotel in Cusco. It is in the lower part of the Avenida del Sol, away from the business of the Plaza de Armas and all the tourist traffic, yet within walking distance of the center, Koricancha, and other attractions. It is a great location.

The rooms are good size, with a nice bed. The bathroom has a large shower instead of a bathtub, which made it extra nice. There is a small safe in the room to keep passports and documents, but it was too small for the laptop. The front desk can keep other objects secure.

Our stay in this hotel was in two segments, with a gap to go to Machupicchu. During the trip to Machupicchu the hotel kept our luggage in a secured location, which was a very nice service. Upon return we got a different room with an even larger bathroom. The only problem was that the Wifi signal did not reach the second room. It did not make much difference, since the Internet access in the hotel was just good for email but not for Skype.

The breakfast buffet was excellent, with a large variety of food, to suit both the local taste and the international traveler. And the service was excellent, replenishing the buffer constantly. The lobby also has a station for free "Mate de Coca" so you can better fight the altitude sickness.

Our tourist bus picked us up in front of the hotel. Since the Avenida del Sol is only two lanes in each direction, the bus cannot stop there very long. Better be ready before the bus comes. By the way, in spite of the generally chaotic driving, the drivers in Cusco are courteous and avoid honking except when absolutely necessary. This made the hotel very quiet in spite of being located in Avenida del Sol.

There is a supermarket across the street, and several nearby restaurants, as well as an artisan center (i.e. shops for tourists) across the plaza.

No question I am coming back to this hotel next time in Cuzco.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first patio have better Wifi access. The back patio does not have much Wifi signal.

I stayed at the Eco Inn for four nights and was very comfortable. It is not, however, a four star hotel. For the sake of my U.S. readers, the Eco Inn is compatible to staying at a Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were standard, with double beds. Both the bathroom and hotel room were large by comparison to rooms I had stayed in elsewhere in Peru. Housekeeping was average - sheets were clean and floors were swept, but I would have liked my bathroom scrubbed regularly and floors mopped. The rooms don't have A/C (not needed at 11,000 feet up!) but do have space heaters in the room. I only used the heater once on a particularly chilly night, however most nights were warm enough that the blankets on my bed worked well for a comfortable night's sleep. Service was good, but the hotel was quite busy so the staff was unable to give it that personal touch. I did however get assistance with my luggage and laundry service was good (laundry prices were reasonable as well). The hotel is built in a courtyard fashion, so be aware that courtyard facing rooms are noisy (especially if the room is facing the lobby!!!). Breakfast is amazing!!! So many options and plenty of well-made home cooked warm dishes to choose from. There was also an omelet station (my personal favorite). The location is great because it is down the street the from the Plaza de Armas. This is good for two reasons: the Plaza is busy and loud both day and night AND the price for Eco Inn is a better value since it is set away from the main attraction of the city. The walk to the plaza will also afford you the ability to walk by and visit Coricancha (The Temple of the Sun). If you do take a taxi, the front desk will get you the most reasonable taxi rates. Have them book the taxi rather than hailing one yourself.

Room Tip: Request a room that does not face the lobby or the street.

In June of 2012 went to Cuzco. Booked the trip in USA online with Nuevas Fronteras Peru. We like this agency because they seem to be real responsive and helped to customize a package tour of 4 nights and 5 days. Long story short...DO NOT USE Nuevas Fronteras PERU for anything use Go2Peru.com...anyway this hotel was not planned for our first night and the local tour operator Karim Carrillos had us stay here. It is a very nice hotel. we were three so we had a sitting room that had a full size bed and then the bedroom with 2 full size beds. Flat Screen TV in bedroom. Small balcony in sitting room. It is a corner room so internet doesn't work well in the bedroom.

Room Tip: If you want strong wifi in the room don't get the corner rooms.

It was our second time in Cusco, and we decided to stay in this hotel because it was "not so expensive, and one of the best" (not true!). First of all, it is not far, but staying closer to the Plaza de las Armas is more recommended. The rooms were comfortable, but do not expect luxury. The patio is very nice, as well the place where the restaurant is placed. The food is ok, nothing special.

The hotel is clean and located only about a 15-minute walk from Plaza de Armas. The staff is friendly (they even agreed to pop a bag of popcorn for my wife that we'd bought at a supermarket down the street). Wi-fi can sometimes be slow, but there are four computers located near the lobby. Some reviews claim that the hotel can be noisy, but we didn't notice anything excessive. Across the street from the hotel is a market that sells souvenirs that are little pricier than elsewhere, but convenient. Also, about a half-block from the hotel (towards Plaza de Armas, on the other side of Avenue El Sol) is a supermarket with great prices on things like bottled water, snacks, soft drinks, etc.
Overall, the hotel was a good value and had nice and helpful staff.

I slept very well in this hotel. The beds were clean and comfortable, the shower was hot with good water pressure, the space heater kept us warm at night, and you could throw paper in the toilet. The only downside was the wi-fi wasn't very good throughout the hotel. I stayed in 2 types of rooms (one on the street and one towards the back facing the courtyard which was very quiet for the light sleeper). During my stay, I ate breakfast buffet and enjoyed it every morning. There was a guy making fresh omelets on request and the food choices changed daily. No one in our large group had any complaints (that I know of). There were 3 people in the group that used the spa facilities and highly recommended it.... The front desk helped arrange a driver to Ollanta on my last night so I could catch a very early train the following morning (I paid 80sol which is pricey but worth making sure you catch your train on time 2hr away). I would recommend staying here for a very comfortable stay. It isn't far from the airport (4-6sol taxi ride) and it's about a 10-15min walk to the Plaza (or 3sol taxi ride).

Room Tip: Rooms in the back on the courtyard are quiet.

Very nice hotel, in the centre of Cusco, nice staff, Excelent buffet breakfast ! 10 min walk to the Plaza de Armas ( Central plaza), the downside was : my room was dark with a window looking out on a closed corridor, I could have changed it I guess, but on the positive side,it was very quiet,and I only spent time there for sleeping.
