The Guest House at Fallen Angel
Ranked #53 of 171 Hotels in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2013

My husband and I, along with our adult kids, enjoyed every aspect of this fabulously quirky and artistically inspired guest house. Rooms are spacious and flamboyantly decorated. Mornings begin with a rich and creative breakfast. The chef was kind enough to prepare a box breakfast for the day we headed out at 5:30 a.m. The staff members were gracious, especially Carlos, who advised us on stretching our all too short stay among the Xmas eve market, the Sacred valley, Cuzco, and Machu Picchu.

Room Tip: No two are alike and you will want to try them all.

We chose this hotel for our honeymoon and we couldn't have to chose better!
The rooms are beautifully decorated (not for those with a conservative taste though). They are exactly what you see on the pictures! We stayed at the white room, and loved it! (although the shower was a bit cold, because it have only courtains, not glass dors in it).
The hotel location is great: it shares a plaza with traditional hotel monasterio, and is very close to the "Plaza de Armas".
Hotel's staff is very attentive! I suffered a little from soroche (altitude sickness) and they were really helpfull.
It's restaurant is one of the best in town and people from all over cusco pass by to try the chef's exquisite dishes or admire the extensive collection of local contemporary artwork that decorate every single wall. Hotel guests can also enjoy a gourmet breakfast every morning. The day we took the train really early to Machu Picchu they prepared to us a delicious gourmet breakfeast "to go"!
We think this would be the best option in Cusco for those who want luxury with a bit of rhythm and youth.

Room Tip: There is only 4 rooms, any of them will be perfect! (each one have a different decoration and size)

10 out of 10 for this small luxury guest house in the centre of Cusco
Quirky designed rooms,but great fun.
Stayed for just one night,wished we had more time here,the service and breakfast were the best we have had in a long time(better than many 5 star hotels)
As mentioned by other reviewers eggs on a bed of fresh vegtables followed by fruit pancake and fresh coffee cannot be beaten
Good luck to the owner and staff they are doing a remarkable job!

I'm Italian.
The Hotel has just 5 rooms, all of them furnished with eccentric furniture.
I've been in one with a small balcony directly on the small nice square, just a few minutes walking from the main square.
The hotel is a $275 per night, with a more than abundant and well presented breakfast.
In Cusco $275 are a lot, but in the same square there are three other beautiful (classic) hotels from $400 up...
The bathroom has crystal-clear walls and the furniture is particular: I loved it.
Go there without pets (forbidden) and children, with a new lover the best, and enjoy.

We had a night here on our way out of Cusco. We chose to upgrade as i had not been well. This hotel was seriously funky! You have to stay a night here JUST to experience the hotel. Each suite is done out different and quirky. We stayed in the yellow room which had a loft upstairs bed and downstairs sitting with the coolest bathroom. The beds were amazing - best nights sleep ever and the furnishings are seriously something i can't describe - you really have to see it for yourself!

The main court yard is done up with all this artwork and hanging angels and the bar even has tables which are fish tanks made out of baths! No jokes....

The staff are incredibly helpful - seriously lovely people. The hot water ran out when we were there (gas tank ran out). They had it fixed in 10 minutes, apologised profusely and even gave us a t-shirt! (totally unnecessary but so so sweet!!).

Ok, now for the important bit.... the food! This is without a doubt the best breakfast i have had in south america..... ever.... 3 months travelling there and this takes the cake! The best coffee I tasted - real cappuccinos! fruit juice cocktails, then a gorgeous eggs on fresh vege packed salsa, then an apple crepe... bread, jams, oh my.. I can still taste it now. Divine!

The restaurant is also amazing for dinner. A local guide told me that the steaks here are what they are renowned for. I had the andes to the jungle and it was so good. Like a sweet infused steak, I can't even describe it. You have to taste it. It's a little more pricey but worth every dollar. (we're talking $30-$40US pp for steak, lovely wine and divine desserts... not really breaking the bank for a one off amazing meal. If you don't stay here, at least go for dinner. My partner is a really fussy eater. This is one of the only places he complimented instead of complaining about! haha! (I hope he doesn't see this!).

Overall a top experience, i couldn't flaw the place! Hope you find your experience as amazing as we did.....Highly recommended

Room Tip: They are all really different. I stayed in the yellow which was great but locals have told me the wh...

Visiting Cusco is amazing but staying here just took it to another level. I spent three nights here with my girlfriend and it was by far the highlight of our trip. There is no other word to describe it than magical, I honestly felt like I had found my way into a fairy tale as the decoration and atmosphere just blew me away. Aside from just the amazing experience from staying in a place like this the service and quality was exceptional. Everything was perfect, from being collected from the airport, advice about what to do in the city, the food in the restaurant etc. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.....they made are experience here awesome. My advice to anyone visiting Cusco is.....do it in style and stay here!

Situated on one corner of Plaza Nazarenas, 5 minutes from Plaza de Armas, this exclusive place features unique and ultimate mix of design and modern art in a restored old house, with only 4 large suites to pamper travellers. Three of them (the Blue, Red and White) are at 280 USD all inclusive, while the Yellow is at 330. Each suite occupies one side of the first floor and all four overlook the patio. That patio becomes at times a chic bar for chic drinks while degustation of chic dishes can be done on bathtube-table over swimming golden fishes. Yes sir.

We love :
1 – Unique, deliciously designed, and like it or not, it is really Unconventionally decorated
2 – Wifi included, Large cook-to-order and serve to table or in-room breakfast
3 – Hug and be hugged by Andres, Carlos and their devoted team, always at your service, or looking for your wellness at all time.

We did not like :
Nothing so far

This happened to the Blue room :
1 – We did not find where the safe box was situated and where is the kettle for a self hot drink during cold Cusco nights
2 – The bathtube may be a piece of art it self, but it is not very friendly user

Tips :
1 – If you come to their very sophisicated website, be prepared for some headaching surfing. Very nice but a bit too complicated to surf and reserve. So we went up to their place on our our little feet and took our chance...
2 – Another funny game is to find out on several paintings where Carlos and Andres are

Room Tip: Only 4, choose from their website
