Reviewed April 8, 2008

We were rather disappointed to be charged for use of internet and use of jacuzzi. The same menu for lunch and evening meal, which wasn't great although breakfast was!

  • Liked — Gardens, large rooms

The Royal Inka II (I is in Cuzco) is a good choice for spending a night or two in the Pisac area of the Sacred Valley. It is about a mile out of town on the road to the Pisac ruins, and sits below them. It is an easy walk into town, or taxis are easily arranged and are very reasonable. The setting is beautiful, with views of the valley mountains and fields, and the grounds of the hotel are attractively landscaped. Rooms are in several separate 3-story buildings, with the main lobby and restaurant area also separate. The moderate size of the hotel and its location makes it popular with tour groups, but the configuration accommodates everyone very well.

Our room was classified as a “deluxe” (#310) and was on the top floor of a building adjacent to the maize fields below Pisac Ruins. The room was huge, with nice views over the valley and the base of the Pisac cliffs. It was attractively decorated in rustic Inca style. There were two comfortable double beds, a fireplace, large t.v., desk, separate dressing areas with a table and mirror, a large closet area with lots of space to hang clothes and room to store suitcases.

The bathroom was very large with shower/tub combo, and a single sink with modest counter space. The bathroom was in need of updating, and we learned that many of the deluxe rooms were slated for refurbishing, including the addition of small balconies for rooms like ours that are on the valley side of the building. This will undoubtedly raise the rate, but it would likely still be reasonable for what you get.

Breakfast was in the pleasant hotel restaurant and was a very adequate buffet with the usual selection of fruit, cereal, and hot dishes (on the second morning there were just a few guests, so the breakfast was served plated).

The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. For example, they arranged a taxi to take us from the hotel to the Pisac ruins, and also a taxi to drive us to Cuzco airport.

  • Liked — Attractive, Comfortable Room, Location
  • Disliked — Minor noise from tour groups

We wanted to stay in the sacred valley for a few nights rather than Cusco the whole time. Pisac was not a good choice for that. The Royal Inka is a 15 min walk from town, which is completely dead after the tourists that come in on buses for the day leave. We got there in the afternoon when it was dead, and it was a completely different place the next morning. As far as the hotel goes, it's fine, but a bit rough around the edges. It seems like they cater to big tour groups, and also, surprisingly, locals, who take advantage of camping areas and the swimming pool in their property across the street. If you're just a few people, I wouldn't recommend this place. I got a massage, and they used baby oil, which was nearly impossible to wash off. At least the massage was good, but not worth being in the shower for 45 min afterward. Staff was friendly!

  • Liked — Nice looking, well kept grounds
  • Disliked — Internet access basically didn't work, and was expensive
