Quiet street with no cars! Great view on Plaza de Armas! Very friendly and helpful people. Great showers and bed. Always coffee and tea at disposal. Great terrace to sit on with spectacular view! Not very attractive courtyard, even a bit stinky. But rooms were very okay. No mastercard!

Don't be thrown by the entrance through the doors. It may look like a rundown courtyard but you walk through to the hotel itself which is quaint. Our hosts were more than accommodating with answering all our questions and organising a tour guide to come to our room to discuss options for day trips while we acclimatised and waited for...

We stayed at Kuska for 5 nights - in 3 separate visits as we came & went from The Sacred Valley & then Manu. The location is great - an easy stroll of only a few minutes down to the main square. The view from the rooftop over the town centre is great. We were very happy with our stay...

We stayed in Kuska for 5d/4n... We were provided a room that had 2 very soft beds... Shower heater faltered once during our stay... Was quickly resolved... There was cable tv though we turned it on just once... Had a very good basic breakfast (bread, eggs, drinks) which is included in the room rate which we availed only once due...

We stayed here only for one night whilst we were transitioning from Cusco to Bolivia. We paid only $40US for a private double room and it did have decent hot water and good pressure. Bed was super creaky and walls were flaking but you get what you pay for. It is super close to the main square which obviously went...

Manager is never present, my room was double booked when I returned exhausted from a 4 day trek. The manager wasn't at the property and the two girls that are there didn't know what to do, I was just told to sit and wait. After an hour I asked to speak to the manager who they called, although she apologised...

We stayed 3 nights in this is an absolutely stunning place before after our doing the Salkantay Trek! First of, it's located 5mn walking distance from the Plaza de Armas via Calle Suecia. Most importantly, both my two friends and I had literally a 5-star service from the lovely staff, on every possible aspects. One example could be that one...

I booked this Hotel over a month before arriving and had need to email the property to make a few special requests.

An absolutely gorgeous place to stay right in the center, near the Plaza de Armas of Cusco. Gorgeous view from the room and the terrace where a lovely breakfast is served each morning. Ruth, the owner, is very warm and attentive and the rooms are beautiful. Enchanting.
