Hotel Kunturwassi Colca
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Cabanaconde
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Utilized this hotel before and after Colca Canyon hike as part of a "personal" tour. No experience with any other hotels in the area except in Chivay, and this was better. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The two lunches were very good for both omnivores and vegetarians. This beautiful, well kept property was relaxing and private with great views and access to town center and Canyon. They allowed access to full room services, bed and shower for $10/pp after the arduous hike down and back up the next day. They never pressured us. The room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was also clean and had a great shower with plenty of hot water and with soap and shampoo. This kindness truly rejuvenated us and saved the rest of our Peru adventure. Highly recommend this hotel as part of a Colca Canyon/Valley adventure.

The owner and his staff will do everything possible to help you and to make your stay confortable. The rooms are clean and quiet. The hotel, located in Cabanaconde, is the starting point for many exciting trecks in the Colca Valley and is close to the Cruz del Condor. Although pricy, the food in the restaurant is excellent, by far the best place in town. Don't miss the ''Ceviche de trucha'' and the alpaca meat. The owner has a farm 200 mts aside the Cruz del Condor and offered us to to have your breakfast there. It is an outstanding experience to have breakfast with condors flying around!

This place was pretty good - - I would stay here again. It was clean and the rooms were nice, and the beds reasonably comfortable. The price was a bit high for the quality, reflecting the lack of competition at the time I stayed there. This small village is a short drive from the prime condor watching spot (Condor Cruz) and on several trails down into the canyon (steep trails). It's nice place to spend a night or two - more if you are a fit hiker. But to get here, it's a long bus ride that leaves at (gasp) 3 am from Arequipa and goes over 15,000 foot plus passes (gasp again). The food here was decent and the staff nice, but they weren't very organized during meals, struggling to keep up with orders, to provide food to big groups, to get beer or drinks. But, the management was also helpful at getting transportation out of town, and taxis to the Condor Cruz site. It was a fun side trip to get here and the scenery is top-notch, with very high peaks over the very deep canyon/valley. It's reminiscent of a Swiss hotel, in the mountains, and pretty average feeling over all, except that its the best place in town.

OK, if this was downtown anywhere else, I give it three stars for a 2 star hotel. However, given where it is, it is about as good as it gets. The hotel is very quaint and quite enjoyable. The staff is friendly and helpful, coca tea is available in the lobby, the restaurant is very good at night, and the breakfast is basic but good. Pick your shower time strategically. I ran out of hot water. I don't mean it got cold. I mean other units used it up before it got to my room so nothing came out of the hot side! Fortunately this was only a brief problem and then there was plenty of hot water.

We used Kunturwassi as a base for day- and multiday hikes in the area. The rooms were pleasant and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were wonderful and there is even a good view from the restaurant.

We only stayed one night in Kunturwassi, arrived in the evening and left early. The staff of the hotel is very professional and helpful, the view from the restaurant was beautiful !

Our room was very nice, with nicely folded towels, heating was available by request for 10 soles per night

The hotel arranged that we where picked up in the morning to view the condors, and ours bags where picked up later by the agency that brought us to Arequipa, we got into the bus at the viewpoint of the condors.

The food (dinner) was a bit pricey, but ok.

Cabanaconde can only be reached by a dirt road from Chivay, by local bus, tourist bus or taxi (we payed 180 soles by taxi for a 1,5 - 2 hours drive)
