Location - located in walking distance to many cultural attractions.

The hotel is clean and modern. Our room was rather odd with the only window in it opening up to a hallway. Veronica at the front desk was phenomenal and super helpful when we were trying to find lost luggage. Breakfast was included and really delicious with fresh fruits, juices and eggs. This hotel is not located near the downtown Cusco area. It was a bit of a walk and not very convenient.

Great hotel
great hotel: clean room and bathroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. It's a great place to stay in Cusco. Located about 15 min away from the main plaza on a quiet street.

The scented plug ins were very strongly scented which combined with the altitude gave my partner bad migraines, other than that this was an absolute perfect place to stay with lovely and helpful staff!

Quiet, beautiful, and helpful friendly staff
This hotel is very beautiful. Small and tucked away on a quiet street it has a very quaint feel as if staying in someone's home vs. a hotel. The entire place is very clean and I loved the coca tea set out at all times as well as the complimentary breakfast. They were also very nice offering to let us have breakfast the morning of our check-in instead of the next day since we had to leave for Machu Picchu very early in the morning before breakfast. The first night was difficult as there were dogs barking loudly in the street all night but that is not the hotel's fault. I'm glad I took a chance and booked them again for a few more days later in my stay because those nights were very quiet. Be sure to ask at the front desk if they can help arrange tours because we had several very nice private tours to surrounding ruins that we would have never set up otherwise. They also let us store our luggage before and after checkin. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

25 years experience
I’ve been working for the Tourism industry for over 25 years, travel the world all around and stayed in many hotels big and boutique. With that said...this is by far the best small property owner hotel I have never being. Everything, all around was the highest standards in the industry. I will not said anymore because I know as a fact that probably some of the readers will think this is a comment related to the owners, but honestly this is not. I strongly recommend this hostel!
