This hotel has won service awards from TripAdvisor and I can understand why. The service and help from the staff was outstanding. Melvin particularly was lovely and most helpful but everyone on reception was always happily available to help in any way. They organised a complimentary pickup from the airport for me and on arrival was welcomed with local cocoa... More

A fabulous little haven in the heart of Cusco. Great rooms, delightful staff willing to go the extra mile. Wifi was free and easily accessible, they happily stored our luggage for several days, the beds were very comfortable, with good quality linen. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Natalay and the other staff for a fabulous stay.

very centrally situated - the rooms were in good condition however being on the first floor and the age of the building, the flloorboards creaked badly. besides that, the room was most comfortable the breakfast selection was one of the best that we found on our trip.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. I appreciate this a 1700's hotel and the architecture and wood used is amazing, liked the courtyard and decorations. We upgraded to this hotel and looked forward to our 2 night stay in Cusco. Upon our arrival we found no bottled water... More

We stayed in this hotel both before and after doing the sacred valley tour and Machu Picchu and stayed in total for 3 nights. I would definitely recommend staying for at least 1 day/night in cusco to get used to the altitude before doing heavy exploring such as in Machu Picchu. Fabulous hotel. We had 2 rooms each time and... More

This is a very beautiful hotel which is actually an old colonial building. Thus it only has few rooms and just 2 with a kingsize bed and we stayed in both.

Unaytambo is an historical building on an original Inca site which means that a.o. the entry door is original top quality Inca masonry. That is pretty cool. Also the rooms are still very much displaying the original old construction, wooden roof beams etc. Therefore the hotel is very atmospheric. This however also means there are many steps and thresholds that... More
