“Great location and friendly staff”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This was a tale of two halves for us. We stayed before and after our trek. We arrived for our first stay after a long journey, overnight bus to Lima followed by a flight, to find that there was a problem with the hot water. The room only had a window onto a corridor( room 303) and the room was quite chilly, but the staff did get the radiator to work which made a big difference. The room itself was very comfortable and clean. Also, we had read good things about the restaurant but it was closed as it was Sunday.

When we returned for a couple of nights after our trek we were in room 304, again very comfortable and clean, which had a lovely view over the Cusco rooftops, the shower had endless amounts of hot water and the room had a heater. We ate in the restaurant 2 nights, the food was really excellent and the waiters were good fun. I would have given this hotel 5 starts based on our second stay. The location is ideal for the main square, shops and markets.

Room Tip: Request a room with window eg; room 304 and tell the staff if the room is cold as they will provide...

There is nothing I can complain about with this B&B. The location was near everything in Cusco. The complementary coca tea really helped us prevent altitude sickness. Breakfast was good. Checkin and checkout was smooth too.

This hotel is beautiful, close to the Plaza de Armas yet quiet (if you have an interior room.) It is right next door to the Machu Picchu museum and a block from the plaza. The Mutu restaurant sownstairs has great food at good prices and the only waiter we found in Peru who actually checked to see how everything was after the food was served. The 3rd floor roof is great for views, smoking or just relaxing.

The only downside of this hotel is that the internet in our 2nd and 3rd floor rooms was barely existent.

Room Tip: Ask for an interior room so you do not need to hear the noise and chaos of Cusco.

This hotel was sort of a home base for us as we stayed for one day at the start of our trip and two days towards the end of our trip. It's what you would expect from a 3 start hotel, good value and close proximity to the area. If you are looking for something that is of higher quality and more amenities you'll need to look elsewhere. This really is a travelers hotel which is there for sleeping and pretty much that's it.

The rooms were clean, beds were hard and you could hear all the traffic in the hallways as there is no noise proofing used here. Windows are weird, some look into a hallway, some into a courtyard and some who knows where. Very odd. You'll need to walk all the way up to the third floor as there is a nice look out at the roof where you can see 360 degrees around Cusco.

Brunch was included and is very basic. Toast, Eggs, Yogurt, juices and bread. Was good enough to start with.

WiFi is quite fast and I was pleasantly surprised.

The hotel is situated just off the square and is a 2-3 minute walk to it. There is lots to do and see around and you'll be satisfied with that.

Overall if I was travelling again I'd use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is away from the traffic of the hotel if noise is an issue for you

Good value, wonderful staff and great location. Close to Plaza de Armas, very convenient to go to restaurants and sites. Decent breakfast, friendly staff, not too noise although it is located in one of the busiest streets of the city. We had a wonderful time.

This hotel is hard to review. Hotels in Cusco are to experienced travellers NOT worthy of the Peruvian "star" system. This is not a boutique hotel, it is an older hotel with some attempts at upgrading. There is no elevator. The good: the staff tries to be accommodating, often succeeds, and the bartender we befriended was a sweetheart; the rooftop deck; hotel location. The just ok: breakfast, food in general, amenities, command of any language other than Spanish. The weird: in remodeling this older hotel, it has been designed so that most of the rooms are around a central core, which "overlooks" the hallways, and there are no windows in any of the rooms. We had been forewarned, and upon arrival asked to see all other available rooms, and moved into a room that had a window. Do not stay here unless you have a window. Our window made all the difference in the world, we were there for 3 nights. The rooms are small and sparse, nothing special in any way. They do keep the filtered water and matte tea in the common areas stocked, and that's a plus. We would not stay here again, but made the best of it. Again, Condor Travel helped with our travel issues in Cusco, and their service made Cusco a better experience for us. One other point, the hotel locks down at night, literally, there is a roll-down metal gate over the entrance, and if you are wandering back after dark make sure you pay attention as you will not recognize it, we actually walked by the hotel and had to turn around. A very average experience.

Room Tip: Do not book a room without windows!

We spent 12 days in this region. During this time we used the Maytaq as a home base. Left our luggage here when we went into the mountains, then left it again here when we went into the jungle. The staff is great and friendly. They are used to hikers and foreigners. The breakfast was quick and easy in the morning. Not a luxury place, but I believe in this region most people are not looking for that. It has everything you need, rooms are clean, showers are nice, food is decent, and they can accommodate what ever you want. Perfect home base.
