Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great stay at Selina Plaza de Armas! Good food, some rooms may be able to hear the music a little louder than others in the evenings but it doesn’t play throughout the night. The hostel staff and tour desk staff were super helpful in organising tours/taxis and making sure my stay was comfortable. Lounge area was a nice place to relax and socialise. Very ideal location close to Plaza de Armas

The location of this Selina is excellent, you are 2 mins from Plaza del Armas , 5 mins from San Pedro market and so on. The only issue I had was noise. If you like to get a good sleep, this isn't a place for you. I had to be moved to a different room, further from the action and Vilbert made it possible and I want to make sure he's recognized for a great service!!

The website pictures are misleading and look much nicer than it is - the room images are bright and look very hotel-like, but my room was a lot darker. It’s much more of a hostel.
For 100 USD a night (without breakfast) it’s a lot, especially for a hostel.
I had an early start for Machu Picchu (as I expect most guests do staying here) and yet there were some very loud banging and renovation works on my floor until 9pm and then I didn’t get to sleep until 1am due to other loud clearing up noises downstairs plus loud talking. I messaged reception at this time and they said they were asking them to quieten down.
I’d booked to come back here a couple of days after my hike - if I hadn’t pre paid I would’ve definitely gone somewhere else. That said, the second time was better as I asked to stay somewhere quieter.
On a more positive note, friendly reception and appreciated being able to store my luggage, helpful that the airport transfer could be arranged and great location.

While I absolutely love the hotel and the food and everything about this hotel/hostel, there was one major issue. They lost 1/2 go my clothes with their laundry service. At the moment I am in Cusco, having had to cancel my trek this morning due to the fact I didn't have any pants to wear for the trek I was to do today. I had to cancel the trek I had already paid for and so far I have spent hours trying to locate my missing laundry to no avail. While the staff are very kind and trying to find the missing clothes, the face remains that hundreds of dollars of clothes is missing. I am on holiday and this is not the sort of stress I had wanted when I booked Selina. Beware of their laundry service!

We stayed here a few days and, we hated it!

The pros, it was very close to the city center with lots to do in that area and places to eat.

The cons, we arrived and immediately noticed it wasn’t you basic hotel. It’s more of a hostel and hotel mixture. Yes they have rooms with their own bathroom, how we stayed, but they also have the hotel experience. The downside, we felt the hostel aspect of the hotel destroyed the quiet hotel experience.

The common area was used by people to watch sports on the tv, play games, listen to music, work on computers, chat, eat, and lay down. This created noise underneath our window all night long until about 1am daily!

We initially planned to come back to this hotel after a few days hiking. We decided to cancel the return stay and the hotel refused to refund the days we canceled 4 days in advance.

This was one of the worst hotel stays we’ve ever had.

Overall a fantastic stay. The location is terrific, the decor is awesome, and the amenities are on par with much more expensive options. I would definitely recommend staying here. I stayed for 10 days and there was entertainment in the early evenings 6-8:30 or 9. Totally reasonable. I would like to acknowledge Matthew from the bar is fantastic. Mariluz from the zen spa is a miracle worker, professional and kept this guy going for multiple high altitude treks. Finally, Frank was such a warm and kind security guard. I really struggled sleeping the first couple nights due to the altitude, he gave so many good recommendations about Cusco and it’s culture from a true locals viewpoint. Selina made my stay in Cusco better for sure.

We had a lovely time a Selinas! Room, breakfast and staff was great. We could definitely see ourselves come back to Selinas if we return to Cusco. When we did the Inca Trail we were also able to store our luggage at Selinas, which was really appreciated.

It’s ridiculous: Nobody gave any reason why we pay 175 soles ( more than 50 US Dollar ) for 1 shot of Tequila Patron . We had 5 shots , so 875 soles . This is more than all the room rate for 7 nights !!
Be careful with Selina Hotels around the world . It’s boring and some prices absolutely ridiculous
Next time we prefer Kokopelli!!

Two of us from the UK stayed in a twin room for 3 nights before, and 1 night after an Inca trail trek.
The Selina exceeded all expectations.
It was well located in the city centre, a few minutes walk from the main plaza. The accommodation was spacious, spotlessly clean and the bathroom facilities worked well. Meals were of high quality and reasonably priced.
But what really stood out was the staff who were invariably hard working and always with a smile on their faces. We didn’t learn all of their names but outstanding were Nicole on reception, Patti and Jeff in the restaurant and Angie in the bar. The hotel is fortunate to employ these people. Thank you all.
As an aside, several of our group stayed in air bnbs. It was notable that several encountered problems when they returned from the trek, from being locked out to having no water. At the Selina, we just carried on where we had left off.
Should we find ourselves in Cusco again, we will undoubtedly return.

This place has been amazing. My friend and I have been here 4 days with 3 more to go and we don’t want to leave. The staff has been incredibly friendly and attentive; the food here is delicious; overall service 5/5. The rooms are clean, they have great activities to help people socialize, and are great with helping to arrange tours, recommendations, etc. We have felt very safe every step of the way. Can’t wait to come back when Machu Picchu reopens!
