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.

The breakfast is very good, the staff friendly and attentive, very professional. The location is perfect. The rooms need a little upgrade to the ventilation system and the bathrooms. Also, WiFi in the room is cutting 90% of the times but this could be easily solved. Overall, I recommend this place and their guest care, including room service ladies who found my earring and returned to me <3

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The best part of the stay was the service. Employees like Roberto were always there to help me with anything I needed. They always had water, a cup of coffee, or advice about Cusco ready

We stayed in room 321 for 4 days. The location of the hotel is amazing, there are many shops and restaurants around. The hotel staff were really helpful. But because our room faces the hotel lobby. Breakfast is served every morning at 6 o'clock in hotel lobby. Our room was noisy and couldn't sleep anymore. I booked this hotel through Expedia. The itinerary mention: this property offers transfers from the airport. But the front desk told me this service is not free. Finally, I used UBER.

Great location, huge rooms with refrigerators, great staff, made to order omelets for breakfast! We were on a 10 day tour of Peru and this was our favorite hotel. Located not far from the Plaza Mayor de Cusco. A little noisy, door to high ceilings in the lobby

We have just finished a 6 day stay here. The location was awesome. Only 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas. And within 3 blocks of anything else you would want in a historic Inkan town. We enjoyed our stay and the staff were kind and helpful and spoke English very well. We were in room 501 it has the best view. If we are ever in Cusco we will stay again.

My friend actually booked this hotel because he said it was in a great location and was pretty similar to others he saw. First off, I have zero idea how customers rate this place so highly.

I have stayed at hotels around the world for very much the same nightly rate that were waaayyy better.

Checking in was easy however. I did ask the receptionist for the WiFi passcode as soon as I got there because I needed to send an urgent email. She asked me to wait and took her 5 minutes preparing paperwork before she gave it to me. Disgusted!!

Pros:
Located in the heart of town. Most staff members seem polite and did say hi when we walked by.

Hot water wasn't an issue in the bathroom.

Cons:
On boy! Way too expensive for what you receive. It is an older building with an old taste when it comes to decor.

We were given room 411. This room is almost at the end of a dark corridor. They seemed to have made an effort to renovate the room but taste is simple. TV had gr8 channels though.

We counted 6 windows facing the street which means that all other rooms (4 floors) all have windows facing their...yes! dark corridors.

Our bathroom was that of a cheap motel. Careful though, if you open the small bathroom window, the other guests can peek from their tiny window. Everytime we showered, the tub would fill with water. It did drain but very slowly.

Internet is horrible!! I was on vaca but still needed to send an email or two. It disconnected every 5 mins or so.

Heater sounded like an old refrigerator and we could hear the tine 3 person elevator all day and night. There was also a extractor tube (from the kitchen) outside the bath window that rattled a bit during wee hours of the night.

Then came my big disappointment. No iron in their rooms because they have had issues in the past according to their manager (who I believe is not a regular traveler). All hotel rooms this day and age have irons and if guests burn something, they pay for it and that's it. I needed to iron a formal shirt and jacket and had to pay for that.

Breakfast is served up until 9:30am. Most hotels serve till 11am. We had two late tours and wanted to have BK later but had no choice. Breakfast overall was minimal. I once asked for 2 fried eggs and got two horrible eggs done on high heat and bumpy.

There are a lot of plants all over the balconies that require urgent care. Most are about dry and dead.

I won't stay here again and neither will I recommend this place.

This hotel is deep need of updating from dial phones, old light fixtures, old tvs.

Location is great and service was fine.

But you may feel like you are in the 50s...

Cannot recommend, the Costa del Sol across the stress is a million times better for ten more dollars

The Royal Inca II is a hidden gem in Cusco. Is one of two properties of the Royal Inca hotel group in Cusco. It is located close enough from the lively main square – the Plaza de Armas – but far enough to be quiet at night (just a five minute easy stroll from the front door to the Plaza).

To insure we had a room on arrival we pre-booked a room at another hostel (lower class & futher out from the Plaza) for $50/night, but on arrival at the Cusco airport. We approached the Inca II hotel representative and negotiated a rate of US$60/night for two nights (Saturday night and Monday night). Normally the rooms here go in excess of $100/night, but if you’re lucky to be there in low season a better price can be had if you negotiate a little (it helps if you speak Spanish). The hotel occupancy was very small and we felt as if we owned the place. On the other hand, I could see difficulties finding sitting space at the restaurant & lobby during high season.

Included with the room came a very nice breakfast which consisted of fresh fruits, fresh squeeze juices – orange & papaya, coffee, made to order omelets, bacon, cereals, and yogurt. What else could they have included in the breakfast, I don’t know. While you eat breakfast you’re presented with a view of a beautiful high mural made up of thousands of tiny tiles (see picture).

At one end of the restaurant, sitting against the wall that separates it from the bar, the hotel always had a keg complimentary Hot Coca Tea. They say that this tea helps lower the effect of high altitude sickness. The Coca tea is a little bitter but it tastes great if you squeeze some lemons and add the honey that they had with it. Note: I was a little worry about the high altitude prior to my arrival in Cusco. All that I got was a slight headache. If you’re in decent shape, and don’t smoke, you don’t need to worry about it. They also said that the effect of high altitude is minimized if you do not eat heavy/fatty meals on your arrival.

The room was adequate. You could say the furniture was dated – but this is common when you stay outside the cosmopolitan cities of Latin America. We had two decent twin beds with nice Alpaca blankets. The room has a decent 19 inch TV with more channels than one could watch on any given moment ( HBO, Cinemax, BBC, CNN, AXN, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, etc .). The shower was excellent and had plenty of hot water.

But without a doubt for me the BEST amenity offered by the Royal Inca II is the Steam Room (note that they call it a Sauna, but is not a dry Sauna). The Steam roam is open every evening until 10pm. I am a huge fan of steam rooms, and the one at this hotel was perfect – Hot! The steam room felt AMAZING after we returned to Cusco having spent the day soaked, sweaty and dirty in Machu Pichu. Make sure to ask the attendant ( the massage therapist) to turn on the sauna at least 20 minutes before you intend to use it to warm up the tiles; unless you want to sit on cold tiles that will shock your rear end. They also have two Jacuzzis but I did not use them.

As to food use the hotel restaurant only for breakfast. Instead take a five to ten minute walk and eat at Tapananchis. There are other restaurants around the Plaza de Armas which may have a more typical colonial décor ( Tapananchis is more cosmopolitan in its flair) But here the food was uniquely EXCELENTE!

Note the the pictures shown on the link of Hotel Photos (that take you to Expedia) don't correspond to this hotel.

What are the details of the laundry service? What is the price, and what are the hours/turnaround?

If you drop off the laundry early in the morning you will have it delivered to your room later that day. I thought the charge was reasonable.
