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.

Hotel is in a good location 10 mins or so walk to main square. Staff friendly but hotel just okay. Loud humming noise on floor 4/5 that’s louder when laying down. If you hate noises when sleeping then this isn’t for you! Staff friendly. Breakfast is little lacking.

My wife and I stayed here before and after a tour along with a friend, so we got to see both a couples room and a single room. This hotel has several rooms that are entirely interior with no outside windows or ventilation, which is kind of strange. In one room the shower had a vent into the closet, of all things. One of our rooms had no hot water for the shower, which is apparently a common problem.
The breakfast is very basic, eggs are provided but not kept warm for example. The coffee is extraordinarily black, resisting any coloration by the addition of milk to a degree that it was entertaining to watch.
Service was reasonably friendly and prompt, and the location was convenient for walking to go sightseeing.

We were booked into Hotel Puma as part of a tour. It was a very efficient little hotel. It is close to the Indian market, so it is a short walk to buy souvenirs. It is about a 20 minute walk to Plaza de Armas.

A buffet breakfast is provided with the room. We got there about 30 minutes before they closed the buffet. No eggs and no one was looking after the buffet. One of the customers had to ask for more eggs till it occurred to the staff that we might want some. Other mornings, they served a strange meatball concoction. It seemed more like a lunch item than breakfast.

Rooms are spartan. There's no heat, but you are provided a room heater and alpaca blankets. I think the blankets were infested. My roommate and I both noticed that we had bites on our legs the next morning.

The second day, the elevator was closed for maintenance. Not such a big thing, until the morning of the third day when we had to drag our bags down the stairs. Luckily, the bell staff came to our rescue.

Perhaps I have reached an age where I like to be delighted by the hotels I stay in. And perhaps I have had some great experiences in my travelling life, but the hotel Puma was really quite grim. The decor tired, and brown, the taps in the bathroom had a mind of their own and the water pressure would get stronger and weaker as you stood under the shower. The rooms were big, which was good, the windows were flimsy and the noise from the road really loud. Our second room, post Inca trail, was not noisy, but our window opened out into a central area which looked into other people's rooms. In our first room there was a window above our door that opened out into the corridor, and this let light pour into our room at night. I did ask the hotel to assist us and to cover this window. They did oblige, which was appreciated. Breakfast, was grubby, with bread rolls really rock hard, fruit that was out without cover for at least an hour. The final insult was that part of our group had money and valuables stolen from their safe, which although they accidentally left in their room after departing for the Inca trail, really should not have gone missing, given that the only people who should have been able to access the safe would have been the hotel staff.

Also - there was no heating in the rooms whatsoever. At least there were thick blankets in the room!

We stayed here as part of a pre booked tour. 4 nights in total. I'll start with the good - the location is close enough to the centre of Cuzco. About a 20 min walk to the main square. Now for the rest - the staff were unhelpful and rude. Did not speak a work of English. Breakfast was awful. Rooms were clean-ish but I slept in my sleeping bag liner in the bed and wore thongs in the shower! The shower had no pressure and very little hot water. The shower head fell on my husbands head in the first room we were in. Worst of all though was the noise! On a main road and everyone sits on their car horns all day and all night. We got very little sleep here unfortunately. No wifi in rooms (only in foyer). We won't be staying here again.

I stayed at this hotel for three nights total as it was booked for me by my tour group. I stayed the first two nights in a room on the 5th floor. The room was dated and extremely cold. I could hear my neighbors clearly through the thin walls. One good thing was the shower was hot both days. My final night I stayed in a room on the second floor, which was worse. It faced the street so was noisy and I had a street light blinking into the room all night. The room made me feel like I was in a prison, it was so depressing and drab. Really cannot understand how this hotel qualifies as a three star. I’m giving this hotel an extra star because of the friendly and helpful staff, but the rooms would be 1 star only. The front desk, waiters, and bellhops were awesome and should be commended, but the hotel rooms are very poor.

Stayed here 3 nights. Location is ok, not far from the main square and other attractions including a pretty cheap handicraft market , convenient store and pharmacies . Breakfast was ok as we didn't eat much in Cusco due altitude sickness . Rooms were too small and dark, the heater didn't work and neither did hot water one night. I am pretty sure there are better options in town

I think the staff may have been ill prepared for a large group. When we checked in late at night, our room had no towels and several others in our group had no running water. The rooms were clean however the bathroom had several areas of mold by the showers so I didn't feel comfortable taking a bath. Anytime we tried to get water, tea or beer at the bar, there was no one to help us. Luckily we were not at the hotel often, as it was in a perfect location close to the main plaza. The rooms were very noisy, so I highly recommend ear plugs or a noise maker.

Once we arrived we were met in the lobby with coca tea. The entire staff was very service oriented. The breakfast is included in the price, and was very good. The location is perfect, close enough to all the sites without being in the heart of the traffic/noise. This is not your hostel-college group at this hotel, which is nice. Since many of the hostels in Cusco start partying at 1pm and continue until 4am. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are clean, everything is very basic. No frills. I suggest you bring your own soap, washcloth, shampoo/conditioner. Towels are good. Great tubs for bathing. PLENTY OF HOT WATER FOR BATHS AND SHOWERS. Plenty of blankets, and we were furnished a small space heater. The only downfall of my experience was the other hotel guests were very loud. They would speak very loud to one another in the hallway and slam doors. But, you have allot of people from around the world and I suppose the "hotel etiquette" isn't the same in all parts of the world. The walls are thin, and therefore you do hear allot of what's going on. But, I was so exhausted from touring all day that I pretty much slept through it. This is an affordable hotel with a great staff. Luis the the bellboy and he is very shy but an excellent employee!

What is on the breakfast buffet

Los Angeles, California156 contributions85 helpful votes
Yes, minimalist breakfast compared to our experiences at other hotels in South America. Scrambled eggs, sometimes with other ingredients so, yes, you can ask for an omelet or fried eggs unless you're in a hurry. One type of cheese which we didn't find appealing. Maybe 1 or 2 kinds of fruit. A couple choices of bread and cereal. This hotel is a 20 minute walk from the central square so not particularly convenient to the sights.
