Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza
Ranked #23 of 172 Hotels in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We stayed at Tierra Viva Cusco plaza for a total of 5 nights. 4 nights prior to hiking the Inca trail and one night following. We were overall very happy with our stay. The first time we were in room 103, which was fine, but did get a bit hot at night without use of the heater. Fortunately, it was very quiet, which we appreciated. My parents stayed in a larger room--5th floor, which had an amazing view. Upon our return, we had room 301. We could hear the club next door, but that was easily masked by my white noise app on my iPad. We returned late from the hike and with 9 other family members (6 total hotel rooms), and we were relieved and grateful when we found that the staff had already put our luggage in our rooms and checked us in. Very helpful.

Pros: location
Accommodating staff
Clean
Great breakfast
Reliable wifi

Cons: some rooms are noisier or less inviting than others

Overall, good for the price and we highly recommend.

Note that there are two Tierra Viva hotels. We stayed at Cusco Plaza, which is closer to the historic district than the other one.

My wife and I used Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza as our base camp during our two weeks in Peru, staying for a total of five nights - three nights acclimating before starting our Inca Trail trek, one night between the Inca Trail trek and our Manu tour, and then one night after our Manu tour in preparation of heading home. We couldn't have been happier with our stay!

The staff was amazing!!! They helped us when LAN Peru delayed delivery of our luggage, held our luggage when we were out on excursions outside of the city, had our room completely set with our luggage waiting for us upon our return from each excursion, had great breakfast and coca tea, and genuinely cared about how our stay was. Many thanks to everyone at Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza for your hospitality!

Which normally wouldn't have been an issue, except that I received many emails from the hotel saying that they offered a free pick up service. I provided them with our flight # and confirmed several times prior to our arrival in Cuzco. The taxi people told us that they send taxi's to Tierra Viva everyday, and to not expect the hotel to pick us up. I was sure they would come eventually, and after an hour and a half of waiting, and calling to hotel, and having them tell us "10 minutes, well be there" we got in a cab and headed to the hotel. The hotel compensated us for the cab ride, but an hour and a half of our already short vacation was wasted.

Otherwise, this hotel had the best bed, shower, and breakfast of any place we stayed in Peru. A little noisy, as the walls were thin, but we learned that this is pretty typical in Peru.

Location is 1 block from the main Plaza.

Room Tip: The rooms with the balconies are cool!

We spent 2 nights here, 1 before & after going to Aguas Caliente, and found this to be a wonderful hotel. The location is great – located off the main square so you do not hear the traffic but close enough that you can easily walk to the restaurants/shops/square. It is also just a few minutes from the airport and train station, important since we had to go through both.

The room itself was good size. We did pay for a slightly larger room, which was nice since this was our first stop in over a week that had electricity and hot water all day (you don’t realize how much you miss it until it is gone). The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the water was hot. Everyone who worked there was helpful and quick to provide answers to our many questions. Breakfast was included, and it was good - we did not leave hungry.

I anticipate going back to Cuzco at some point, and when we do we will definitely stay here again.

No need to look elsewhere.
The hotel is the best it can be - a minute wallking from the main square.
When we arrived, the car was waiting for us to drive us to the airport. The welcome was very friendly and helped ourselves to the famous coca leaves tea.
Unique structure, and cleaning it out of the ordinary. Breakfast starts already from 5:00 am so that anyone going early day tour, can enjoy an excellent breakfast.
The staff is friendly and willing to help at any time, and prices are quite reasonable.
There is no point to run wild and double the other 5-star hotels, the hotel provides the best value for money and even more.
We got a room with a small balcony overlooking the small alley.
Have Internet everywhere in the hotel and a TV with all the channels required.
Breakfast is adequate though not diverse, but in the lower lobby with a relaxing atmosphere.
Little noisy night club below, but who really fell asleep in Cusco at night?

Visited with my wife, we used it as a base to travel around Cusco, and to and from Machu Picchu. Nice little boutique hotel, excellent location. The suite we stayed in was just fabulous and had a great view of the city and the hills beyond.

Room Tip: The Suite. Period. WORTH it!
