Stayed here twice during trip. First room, top floor with vaulted wood ceiling and two twin beds. Room a bit small, but clean and decorated cute and good view of courtyard and mountains. Negatives on this room, wood board holding mattress up came loose as it was cut too short for its purpose and 1/2 of mattress ended up on floor - so had to be careful not to move too much or could happen again. Other negative, it got really chilly at night and the space heater they had in the room turned on and off all night, it never got warm enough for me. The comforters were good, but I always end up sleeping with arms out, etc. so constantly woke up cold. Second stay room on main floor was bigger, two queen beds, no need for a space heater as it was warmer in the room for whatever reason (better insulation on lower floor probably) and much more pleasant stay. However, view was of side of building 10 feet away. Still, prefer the main floor bigger room. Both bathrooms were fine & water hot.
Staff very friendly and nice, both front desk & restaurant. Plenty of hot coca tea in lobby. Storing of luggage free for going to Machu Picchu a plus. Internet not free, but only $1 for an hour so still cheap. Breakfast buffet good. Oxygen available in lobby if needed. All around very clean. Security out front 24 hours, felt safe at all times.
Hotel a bit hard to find, but once you get your bearing and know where Santo Domingo Convent is, it is down two alley ways (they call them streets!) from the convent. It is not right off the main square, but we had no problem walking there within 8-10 minutes, a bit of a labyrinth to get to main square, no direct way there. For those who don't normally walk much, it is uphill in parts to main square, so may not be best place for you with altitude and probably best to pay a bit more and stay right off of central square(s). You'll be walking some slight hills regardless to get around in Cusco, but it would cut off 8-10 minutes of unnecessary walking to stay closer to cathedral.
Overall, would definitely stay here again and recommend to all, but request room with 2 queen beds on main floor and forgo view if traveling in chillier weather, rather than staying on top floor. (No elevator either).

I just returned from an amazing trip to Peru and part of what made it so wonderful was the Hotel Taypikala in both Cusco and Lake Titicaca. It was located in the central part of Cusco and on the shores of Lake Titicaca....but what really made it memorable was the friendly staff, the clean and large rooms, great food and the lovely decor of local Peruvian art. Our host, Jorge Luis Delgado, did whatever was necessary to accomodate our group and the staff in both hotels were kind, caring and very helpful. All the flowers and beautiful crystals on the grounds gave the hotels a magical feeling. Thank you, for making my trip ----A TRIP TO REMEMBER.

We came to Peru with the expectation that it would be a good trip. We were wrong- it was a magical experience! Thanks to Jorge Luis Delgado, Evan, and the staff of the Taypikala Hotels in both Cusco and Lake Titikaka, we were treated like family members during our 11 day stay. The service was top notch, the complimentary breakfast quite good, the other meals delightful, and the grounds were really beautiful. The decor was eye-catching and reflected the culture of the country wonderfully. The warmth of Jorge and Evan and the staff made this trip unforgettable. If and when we return, we will be sure to connect with these good people.

The hotel is so interesting - it is decorated throughout with amazing textiles that Jorge has collected over the years. It is close to the center of Cusco. The food was very good. I was happy and surprised that we had a hair dryer. The laundry service was fast and inexpensive and did a good job.
