“The Perfect Way to Enjoy Cusco”
Reviewed 20 January 2010

Transport arranged from airport by Saya Wasi
Good advice on acclimatising to 3,300m altitude! Courteous & helpful staff.
Room was large, light, airy with fantastic views over Cusco. Furnished well, tastefully decorated, self catering was possible.
Location quiet, away from traffic, about 20min walk to Plaza de Armas, wonderful centre of Cusco. Excellent restaurant la Retama recommended, (can deliver food to Saya Wasi if you want to stay in) with its live traditional music & dancing. Many other restaurants, bars, music etc. available. Information provided for shops, market, gym & many agencies catering with trail walking, backpacking, all outdoor sports, including Machu Picchu of course.
Best features come from the wonderful location & the attitude of the staff, nothing is too much trouble.
Only slight drawbacks the uphill walk from the Cusco centre at altitude & the need to pump water when the pressure drops but that is provided for.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Saya Wasi in Cusco (the upper house in Quechua) is a private house that offers you the pleasure of staying in a cozy B & B of only two rooms, located in the San Blas area in Cusco, 5 min from Plaza de Armas. This small haven will bring you peace of mind in the more rustic area of the imperial Inca city. This place is the meeting point for artists, close to cafes and galleries. You will comfortably walk in the pedestrian streets or stay at the hotel to laze off on the terrace and admire the view of the elusive historical center of the city. Excellent location. Close to museums, cafes, restaurants. 5 Min walk from Plaza de Armas. 10 Min by taxi from the airport. 30 Min from the train station of Poroy if you are planning to visit Machu Picchu. We speak English, French and Spanish and we will gladly help you in your travel planning. ... more   less
