Had two stays at this hotel during a GAdventures tour. The first room we had, room 204, had limited electrical outlets and the bathroom was undergoing repair. Also had lots of hallway and street noise. The second room, 218, was much more modern but smaller. Better access to electrical outlets and right next to the elevator, with good views. The... More

Stayed here twice during our visit to the Sacred Valley as we did the Inca Trail in between. Lovely, traditional rooms - some with views of the Andes - and plenty of hot water. On the second visit the lock broke on the toilet door which was fixed promptly (we couldn't get in!). The staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

We were basically impressed with the service and staff and the restaurant was wonderful. The location is on a very narrow street so traffic is limited. There is a tiny bodega next door for reasonably priced water. The only problem was that we were on the third floor and there was no elevator. Since this was our first night in... More

We are from Singapore. Hotel staff are very helpful and speaks English. Heaters are provided at each rooms without being requested so it's comforting especially when we come from a tropical country! I even requested the kitchen to cook an Asian style porridge for my friend and they remember my order when I dialed in a second time. My friend... More

The hotel Taypikala Cusco is clean and welcoming, with both coca tea and oxygen available in the lobby for any visitors who may experience altitude sickness once they arrive. The dining area is large to accommodate large groups and open early (5:00 AM) to allow for early departures for day trips. It is located near the Plaza De Armas square... More

Just a short walk to the Armas de Plaza. Grocery store next door for water. They'll do laundry for reasonable prices. Main Artesano Central just down the street. Rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast included is a nice buffet with omelet bar. I highly recommend this hotel.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly. They spoke English and allowed my feeble attempts at speaking Spanish. We exchanged money at the desk at a good rate. The room was comfortable. Breakfast buffet was very good, made to order omelettes, fruit, cereal. The showers were hot. There is a beautiful, small courtyard to... More

Unfortunately we stayed here for 1 night. They had the most comfortable beds. The distance is very close to the center and the staf was very helpfull. Breakfast was good and it was possible to eat very early (very handy if you want to go to the Machu Picchu). We wish we slept more nights over here.
