thanks very much for a wonderful stay in your lovely hotel. The staff was so helpful and friendly and made our stay really special. Our girls got sick and needed medical attention, thanks to the staff of Unaytambo a doctor came to the hotel, assessed the problem, wrote prescription etc. also advised the gentlemen on night duty that oxygen was...

This was definitely the most unique hotel my friends and I stayed at in our recent visit to Peru as it's essentially attached to an archeological site and has a very rustic feel. Once we finally oriented ourselves to the city, we realized it was also a very good location, about 2 1/2 blocks from Plaza de Armas. The first... More

This hotel is in a historic building and has a lot of character - from the little lane you enter from to the courtyard (lovely place to sit under the sun) and the room itself with its thick plastered walls and deep wooden window. Comfortable warm bed. Clean - although we did get a beetle in a towel one night.... More

We try to seek out hotels with a lot of character and charm--something we can't find anywhere else--and Hotel Unaytambo definitely qualifies. Loved the entrance off a pedestrian alley that has a real Incan wall, the historic building with crooked steps and slanted floors of the second story, the large triple room (Rm. 204) with its interesting layout and balcony...

Picked this hotel out of the list mainly because of the great reviews and it did not disappoint us. Historic hotel across the street from the temple of the sun and the center of ancient Cusco. Rooms were clean, reasonable, and quiet. All rooms face a serene courtyard. Close to everything. The service and individual care are this boutique hotels... More

We recently stayed here and the smell in our room was so bad we could not sleep. They are currently doing work in the courtyard in the samle complex as this hotel is situated and the rooms smell of human excrement. We were moved to a second room but the smell was no better. The staff were apologetic but the... More

I booked this hotel based on reviews and knowing nothing about Cusco, and it turned out to be a great choice. We had to make a couple of changes after the booking, including cancelling one night in the middle of our reservation so we could stay in Aguas Calientes to see Machu Picchu, and the accommodated every request by e-mail....

Great hotel - really lovely and helpful staff. Assisted with coordination of taxis (because you can get screwed in Cusco if you don't get a legit taxi), kept our bags while we were on the trail and had everything set up in our room when we returned from the trek. Nice little breakfast each day, great location. Would definitely stay... More

Great basic hotel. We picked the Unaytambo based on its reputation for customer service and were not disappointed. In fact, we enjoyed our first stay so much that we cancelled our stay with another hotel and, on our return from the Inca trail hike, booked back in again with Unaytambo. The owners were lovely and the young guy who cleaned... More
