“Exactly what we were looking for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Rooms were spacious and had cool decor. I enjoyed the antique looking wooden beams in the ceilings and the cozy paintings. Room was a bit cold but the hotel provided many warm blankets and a space heater. Breakfast was nice and they offered to cook us eggs each day. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Very much enjoyed staying at Unaytambo! Centrally located (5-10 min. walk to most of the places one wants to visit in Cuzco), and the hotel has great charm & character. Rooms are a comfortable blend of historic and modern. Pleasant courtyard area in which to relax. Great service; we needed a third bed in a 2-bed room, and they had it set up prior to our check-in. Front desk was very helpful in recommending local restaurants and sites, arranging taxis to the airport, etc. Highly recommend Unaytambo!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Unaytambo for a total of 3 nights in December 2013.

The hotel was super cute and had lots of character. The bathroom was modern and very clean (cleaned everyday and towels were replaced everyday).

The service was amazing:
- They kept our luggage safe at the hotel while we spent a night away in Aguas Calientes
- They were flexible with a late checkout
- They organised a breakfast (even though it was just toast) when we left at 3am for the Inca trail

The hotel location was a 5-7 minute walk from the main square - it's super convenient and it's super quiet.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Cusco.

Why would you stay anyplace else? Unaytambo represents the best about Cuzco, and Peru. It's situated inside a historic Incan home, so each room is unique and historical. Even the showers, which overflow, are a nice historic touch.

Great free breakfast with eggs. Location can't be beat, 5 min walk south of the main square so you're not in the center of all the junk, but close.

One minor quibble would be that the wifi was not quite strong enough to Skype (we had baggage issues and needed to talk to the airline) but the hotel staff was more than happy to handle everything for us, and went above and beyond to make sure we got our belongings!

This hotel has won service awards from TripAdvisor and I can understand why. The service and help from the staff was outstanding. Melvin particularly was lovely and most helpful but everyone on reception was always happily available to help in any way. They organised a complimentary pickup from the airport for me and on arrival was welcomed with local cocoa leaf tea as well as a lot of information about Cusco including a great map. Melvin arranged on my arrival a city tour for that day arranging for me to pay later which was convenient. The staff also recommended remedies for my upset stomach (after a got a bug on the flight over there, rather than actually when I was in South America!). They organised my washing, booked taxi’s to the Poroy train station (to catch my train to Aguas Calientes), helped dry my shoes which got saturated at Machu Picchu, helped me check in for my next flight, organised a massage for me (Francesco at Dreams was amazing – one of the best massages of my life!). As for the hotel itself it is very well located near the Santo Domingo plaza and a short walk to the Plaza de Armes. The hotel is built on old Inca foundations and has a pleasant courtyard. Rooms are comfortable, the showers have great hot water and there’s free wifi. Overall it was an outstanding experience and stay in Cusco and I recommend it highly. I would stay there again without question.

A fabulous little haven in the heart of Cusco. Great rooms, delightful staff willing to go the extra mile. Wifi was free and easily accessible, they happily stored our luggage for several days, the beds were very comfortable, with good quality linen. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Natalay and the other staff for a fabulous stay.

We are traveling in Peru and have used this hotel as a base returning twice and staying four nights in total. The rooms are huge and fab. Warm, comfy, hot water. Wifi can be a bit dodgy but usually ok. Location fantastic. If you catch cusco without rain the courtyard is great (we didn't) Staff very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast . Would return but sadly probably not. I guess this will be a one-off South America trip! In puno now, travelling South
