“Quiet hotel next to Plaza de Armas”
Reviewed 15 April 2011

This is a very quiet good hotel and the breakfast is good. The reception staff are extremely helpful and have some great value contacts in terms of booking taxis around the Sacred Valley. We had a large room with a double bed and two single beds and would have preferred a desk instead of the two extra beds but I guess they need to be flexible in terms of who might stay with them.

Despite it being convenient and comfortable, we chose to move to Hotel Corihuasi which was cheaper and had better views over Cusco city, although with the obvious disadvantage of a 5 minute uphill walk.

I would recommend El Peregrino to families and those who want the convenience of being right next to the centre (Plaza de Armas).

Room Tip: Rooms at the top floor have a view of the Plaza.

Recommended to me by a fellow TA (InkaCola,) great location, literally just off the main square here in Cuzco. We were shown to a large room, double bed and two singles - the bed was so comfy, best so far and had a great duvet - our sleep was divine. Hot showers etc.

The reason I feel its more hotel than hostel - it didn't have the vibe of a hostel - we were pretty much the only ones staying there so did feel a little souless. However, the staff were truly excellent, really helpful and couldn't do enough for us - we checked out as friends were staying somewhere locally though the owner/manager (Mujure?) helped us with getting a taxi later in the week - even though we were going elsewhere!

Breakfast also very good.

We stayed here for New Years 2011 and it was a great experience. Excellent location just steps from the Plaza de Armas and the rooms were clean and well kept.

However, we thougth the price at US$60 was way too steep. Breakfast is cheap, and the rooms are pretty budget. For US$60 you can find a nice hotel with better amenities in Cusco in a similar location.

We – my son and I - have stayed @ this place before but never during 5 weeks. The service was outstanding from the first day until the last, 24 hours a day.
The room was thoroughly cleaned every day; the breakfast was filling and good. The staff helped us with off the beaten track trips to several places in the department of Cusco.
The hotel is located a stone's throw from the plaza de armas and no traffic pass by. Will definitely stay there again.

My hotel (hostel) here in Cusco was great. Very affordable ($20 to $30) per night was actually better than the stay I had in Casa Andina costing $100.00 per night. The service is great and actually includes a simple breakfast (bread with melted cheese) fresh local fruit, milk, coffee etc.

I higly recommend this place. I didn´t find it in the system so I wrote this review under the title Cusco.
