A beautiful hotel, just a few minutes away from Cusco's main square and all the historical sites in the Centro. The neighborhood feels safe. The owner and the staff were welcoming and attentive to our needs. (Love that they have potable water and a reasonably priced, quick laundry service!) They were very accomodating, letting us leave our luggage for a few days while we were trecking in the region. Rooms are spacious, clean, very confortable and breakfast was perfect to start the day. We'll definitely stay here again when we come back to Cusco!

Reviewed 12 September 2023

This is a challenging review to write, because the team working in the hotel are so pleasant and the facility has so much character and potential. The hotel has (or at one time had) plenty to offer, yet the degree to which certain aspects of the hotel are or are not available depend on what is important to you. We stayed 8 nights and here is our experience:
The pictures of the room we had was accurate to what we received. The room/bath was very clean. The bed/pillows were exceptionally comfortable. The towels were like sandpaper. As for housekeeping: the amenities (soap, coffee, tea) were never replenished.
Filtered water is available in the central area (this is a really nice benefit in a country where you shouldn’t drink from the tap).
Housekeeping: Our room was cleaned daily. The coffee/tea in the room was never replaced, I had to ask for more at breakfast each day. The towels are thin and in some cases shredding.
Internet: The internet was spotty at best for the first few days, and then it was only after I asked that I was told it was down. Interestingly, at the end of day 3 I received a WhatsApp message supposedly from the hotel offering the application as the communication vehicle so that I could ask them any questions and they could help me “as soon as possible”. I inquired about the internet, observed confirmation that my message was read, but I never received any response.
The layout/structure of the building is stunning: there is a central courtyard sheltered from the elements. There is a restaurant and a separate bar located on the first floor. (However, neither were open during our stay.) This was disappointing because the promotional descriptions and pictures provide beautiful pictures of these facilities and speak to the fact that they are onsite.
For breakfast: eggs, yogurt, breads and cereal are provided along with coffee/tea/orange juice. If you’re not fluent in Spanish, try to ask for the egg menu what gives you the 4 options for their preparation in multiple languages.
There is no “front desk”. You ring the door to be allowed in for check-in, and thereafter you have a key that allows you access to the hotel. And anytime you need to ask a question of someone, there is a bell you need to ring to get their attention. They are always attentive to the ring.
Overall: our stay was pleasant. We were disappointed by the absence of the restaurant and bar, and we always felt alone entering the hotel given that no one was around. But the evenings were silent which made for nice sleeping, and the location is close enough to the main square without being so close as to hear the noise.

Room tip: If onsite bar/restaurant are important to you, ask if they are open.

This was a no-nonsense hotel that fit our needs! It was close to everything, the owner and staff were very accommodating. Despite being some of the only guests, we were treated so well. Comfy beds and hot, clean showers. They are very accommodating with our baby!

If you are a history lover and enjoy an artsy mix of new and old, this is a great place. Located just a short walk from the historic centre of town, there is so much to see and do here. The owner Joel and his friendly staff really helped us out with information and taxis, etc. Great breakfast too with lots of variety. Joel is very environmentally minded and supplies free purified water so you don't have to buy bottled water! Joel also treated us to a do-it-yourself Pisco Sour night at the bar, so that was a lot of fun too!
Highly recommended, thanks for a great experience in Cusco!

Hotel Arqueologo was located in the perfect spot only 2 blocks away from the main square and the San Blas neighborhood. The gardens are beautiful and there is a lot of space. Everything is very tastefully decorated. I felt like I was staying at a high end hotel but paid a very reasonable price for a beautiful private room. The hotel does not use any single-use plastic and conserves electricity. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

How nice that they realize all the details that make this hotel a nice place. Also the effort we make to try to be the most respectful of the environment. It is a country where the concern for the issue is null, and the effort on our part goes directly to employees, suppliers and our customers. Thank you.
