“Rustic retreat, enormous comfy bed!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Just stayed in the Superior room for two nights and really enjoyed it. The bed was as wide as it was long and they completely changed the sheets (different style and colour) after the first night: This was a nice surprise after coming back from a day in Cuzco as it felt like a new room. The combination of wall colour and lighting made for a really relaxing & romantic feeling room.

Staff was really helpful (with the aid of Google Translate and a bit of keyboard typing!) in arranging two spaces on the Marcelo Batata cooking course (which I'll review when complete). Breakfast was the standard you get in Peru: cereal, bread/toast & jam, eggs scrambled/fried and coco tea...perfectly pleasant and flexible with what time you want it.

Shower did take a while to warm up, maybe 3 minutes, but was good when warm. Didn't experience hot water running out like other reviewers seem to have done.

Location good and as off the main streets it was nice and quiet. All in all a lovely little place which I'm happy to recommend.

Room Tip: Superior room has an enormous bed which we thought was worth the extra few quid per night

This place was great! Everyone was so helpful and attentive. The only thing i see they need to improve is their hot water resource. When it was time to take a shower, I noticed that when the whole place was using it, it would run out. I think that's something that this place needs to invest in.

It was perfect in everyway! Very comfortable but 1 little downfall
was that the hot water ran out at the end of the day! Otherwise it was great!! I would highly recommend it :) The property was in a good location, very hospitable, and they provide breakfast in the morning! Nice walking distance to town square and very safe. Can't say anything bad...come and see for yourselves!

This place was fantastic. Ignore all of the people who complain about the staff not speaking English. First, it is not true. Second, you are in Peru - they speak Spanish there, not English. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The room was huge and very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh, yummy, and generous. The location is great because it is a little removed from the craziness of the more touristy streets. It is no more than a 10 minute walk from every part of Cusco. They also work with a specific cab company that is fairly priced and reliable. This was my last stop on a 3 week South America trip and I couldn't have been more comfortable. Stay here if you want a quiet, relaxing, enjoyable environment.

Room Tip: Stayed in a double.

there was no phone in the room. not true that phone was taken down - it just wasn't there. staff at night spoke close to no english (about as much Afrikaans as I did - not very much at all!) and probably did not understand when we replied that we would check out at 12 (granted this was an understandable mistake). did not refuse payment as email from expedia reflected that my credit card was charged. had to make long distance phone calls to banks and expedia to have this information verified. with the way the hotel staff had handled themselves and the situation thus far, it is understandable that a level of trust was not present.

did i mention that the staff came banging on the door and was unnecessarily rude in telling us that we were late for checkout? and no where on the expedia booking was a late check-out mentioned. it just conveniently appeared on their dubious policy print-out and nowhere else.

honestly, hotel wasn't the worse. we just felt cheated.

Room Tip: choose one closer to the reception... even better, choose a room at a different hotel.

This was an excellent place with a great price. Very clean, helpful, the breakfast was very good, hot water and the staff were super nice. They even let us store our bags when we went to macchu Picchu. Very close to the main square and the bus station. Would definitely book here again.

Pricey for what you're getting. Hot water ran for about 10seconds. Problems with night staff not speaking English and they made us pay 25% more because we missed their 10am check out after we told the night staff that we were checking out at 12pm. Breakfast was the most redeeming feature.

Yanantin, Gerente at Yanantin Guest House, responded to this review, 19 July 2013
The guests were given much trouble honestly, it is not true that the night staff did not speak English that is totally false, but as she could speak with her, the ladies did not want to pay for your stay, saying that their had already been charged to her card and we tried to show in many ways that the payment had not been charged to her card, the lady must have read before making a reservation by expedia and their would have to cancel at the hostel, about the extra charges should ignore them checked out and we charge only 25% when it should be more, the guests took down the phone from their room and I had to go knocking on their door to tell them about check out and that was because at 12 we expect them to leave the room and they do not came out, about the hot water does not have that kind of problems you just have to wait a bit but then have hot water all the time, we are a guest house and want to make guests feel at home and depending on whether the room is occupied or no, let the guests a little more time, but the girls exceeded that time and took advantage of our kindness.
