“Outstanding Base Camp To Explore Cusco”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Our group of five had the enjoyment of staying four nights at Quinua and was able to experience the charm of four apartments. Each apartment is artfully, tastefully, lovingly, and perfectly appointed with living and kitchen area on one floor and wonderful bedrooms on the second floor. The beds are comfortable and it was easy to add a second bed to the main floor for a younger family member traveling with us. Breakfasts are served in your room at whatever hour you request. The food was tasty, though I recommend ordering double servings of pancakes and the cereal was a little bland. Regardless, we were not limited in what or how much we could order and were happy every morning with the selection. Coca tea is regularly served and helps with the altitude. We enjoyed an electric sauna in one of the rooms, which was very relaxing. As for the service, it was generally exceptional. Christian was a delight, though we only interacted with him when he picked us up at the airport. Bernie provided wonderful tour recommendations and connected us with a fantastic private driver and tour guide to take us through the Sacred Valley. We were able to customize the trip easy in order to stop at Seminario's pottery studio. Our guide was nothing short of exceptional with an incredible wealth of knowledge. My only complaint with the entire experience was that payment was difficult. The hotel strongly encourages payment in cash, which was difficult for our group given the amount of nights and rooms we had. Paying with credit card was assessed a 5% fee, and we were charged in soles at a significantly above-market conversion rate. When we asked if the hotel accepted PayPal, they looked at us as if we had three eyes. Regardless of this bump, it was an exceptional stay and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Recommend rooms on the second and third floors as they have the best views of Cusco!

Just book this hotel!! Hands down the best experience we had through South America and Peru!! Though we stayed here a year ago (May 2013), we remember it fondly and encourage anyone to book here.

Location: Admittedly, the Quinua Villa is a bit tough to find initially. Our taxi driver had some troubles there is only pedestrian streets access to the hotel. Because of the altitude and the uphill climb, I would discourage those with mobility issues from booking this hotel. This being said, a taxi can get within a couple minutes of the front door if you really don't want to walk! The main square is a easy 10 min (downhill/stairs) walk away, but there are plenty of restaurants and shops within 5.

Rooms: The hotel has a quaint cobblestoned central courtyard with rooms overlooking it. We stayed 1 night in Pakarina Wasi and 2 nights in Pukara Wasi. Both were splendid with a stylish Incan flare. Both dining rooms and kitchens were well equipped, copious sitting space, beds comfortable, and the spaces absolutely spotless. The differences were:
- Pakarina Wasi is a very comfortable space for 2, with a cave style interior. It was cozy and quiet despite being on the lowest floor (next to the main gates and small windows facing to the street). The internet was tempermental here. Had we not experienced Pukara, we would have been perfectly content with out stay.
- Pukara Wasi has a bed for two but big enough to have a dinner party! It is a standout because of the view. The upper floor of the apartment has a 180 degree view over Cusco, which complete lights up the night. The bathroom is more luxurious and even includes a small sauna. The lower floor alone (bedroom and bathroom) is easily bigger than a hotel room with windows to the courtyard. We felt completely at home here (in fact, we would have been happy to move right in)....

Service: The main desk is extremely helpful, there seemed to be someone there at all hours, happy to answer questions, call taxis and arrange tours. The breakfast alone warranted lots of photos. Plenty of food delivered right to your door, tailored to your requests, though hot food was limited to eggs if I remember correctly. Hot thermos full of water for tea at all times.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here. The stay was superior to anything I could have imagined.

The hotel is placed in the most fascinating part of Cusco, close to the main attractions and places of interests. The apartments are decorated with excellent taste, with particular care to all details and the view on the city from the upper windows and terraces is spectacular.
The owner and the staff are ready to please your requests in no time and you feel pampered and special all along your stay.
The day starts with a breakfast really at your choice, served directly in your apartment and you can finish the day sitting in front of the fireplace...... simply the perfect place where to stay in Cusco!

Room Tip: To choose your best apartment just visit the website of the hotel, take a virtual tour and you will...

Quinua was recommended by TWO of my co-workers and we were so pleased with our decision to stay here. The staff was nice and incredibly helpful. Bernie helped us from reservations to booking our trek to Machu Picchu (via Salkantay). During our stay we resided in two different, boutique, apartments and both had their own perks. The Casa Garcilazo room was two floors with a more traditional feel. This room had a great view of the city via a small walkout patio but was a bit noisy, I think Cusco parties all night long! Our other room was Inka Wasi, where we stayed after our trek. We preferred this room over the other actually. Located on the entry floor, it was split level with a view of the city from the kitchen. Bathroom was more centrally located (in the Casa room it was upstairs where the bed was located) and it was a bit more quiet, though sometimes you could heard the door buzz of people waiting to be let into the complex.

During our trek, we were able to store our luggage, which was waiting for us in our new room upon arrival. The included breakfast was great and they even sent breakfast to us on the morning of our 5am hike departure. Typically breakfast wasn't served until about 630, I believe.

Our only issue occurred with booking our trek through Quinua. We didn't realize we'd be booking with a travel agency and thus our cost was much more than the other hikers on our trip. Additionally the trip didn't follow the itinerary we were originally told. If booking a tour or trek through Quinua, make sure you compare with other options. We brought this to their attention, and we were met with a formal meeting to go over our concerns. I truly appreciate their care and understanding in handling the matter. They addressed all of our concerns and we left very satisfied in the end with our overall costs. We were able to relax by a fire that night, a nice treat after the hard trekking from days before.

Overall, we were very pleased and will highly recommend to family and friends.

The staff were amazing, very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
We arrived in Cusco around 5am after a very long bus trip and they kindly let us check in at that time. They even brought us a thermos of hot water and a selection of tea, to welcome us .
They took care of our bags when we left for the Inca trail and had our room and bags set up and waiting for us 4 days later.
The delicious breakfast that was delivered to our room every morning was such a nice bonus

I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

We went to Peru for 10 days, and arrived in Cusco after spending time in the rainforest. Quinua Villa Boutique is incredible, the team is outstanding, and Bernie is truly as great as they come. The view from our apartments was truly breathtaking. I could not recommend more. If you are going to Cusco, you must stay here!

We only had one night here after staying 5 nights in Cusco over the other side of town...really wished we found this place earlier...yes there are stairs and a steep climb but you are in the middle of the gorgeous San Blas area with authentic artist shops and amazing restaurants. The apartment we stayed in, inka wasi was fitted out with the coolest furniture and furnishings. I want to live here!!! Staff were helpful and lovely and breakfast was prompt, overly sufficient and delicious!! Love this place!
