“Would stay here again”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We stayed in a deluxe room and also a suite before/after macchu piccu, the deluxe room although located above the road (one of the rooms above the doorway in the profile pic) it was quiet. The suite was much much larger and definitely worth the extra money, it was located out the rear side of the building and super quiet. the bathrooms are still fitted out the same - and done nicely with big shower heads too.

Breakfast was included w both rooms, with cereal, coffee/tea, fruit, scrambled eggs, avocado etc, nice toasts, croissants, sausages which is more of a variety than usual.

We were constantly pestering the staff - who spoke English - about directions to places, they were great about this and marked maps provided. Main square 10 mins easy walk. Left our bags here while on the trek. This is not backpacker accom but consider spending the extra$ especially if you want a nice clean friendly place to come back to after trips away.

Btw great healthy place to have dinner 'greens' 15 mins walk, have a look on tripadvisor. Best food we've had after a month in South America, which has of course been great for meat etc but is difficult to get healthy food.

Room Tip: Suite 212 is great, out back and very quiet

We stayed at Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza 2 nights, and transferred to Saphi for our 3rd night due to Plaza being full. After our room at Plaza, the Saphi room was disappointing with no windows, and the room was huge, not cozy at all. The hotel was not in as good of a location, had no views from any of the common areas. However, it was clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was just as good as Plaza. It was much more quiet then Plaza, though. The funny part is that Saphi cost $10 USD more per night than Plaza. If you have a choice, choose Plaza, but if not Saphi is a good alternative.

Thank you very much for your excellent comment and for having stayed at Tierra Viva.

Every Tierra Viva Hotel has different characteristics, and we are so glad to know that you preferred the one in Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza rather than Tierra Viva Cusco Saphi.

This is a wonderful, clean, friendly hotel near the Plaza de Armas. The staff was wonderful and "Willy" was fantastic. As others have written the rooms are large, clean with great showers and huge beds. Extremely helpful and accommodating.

Great hotel! Really large, clean, well equipped, well decorated rooms. Hot shower, great breakfast and helpfull staff! Not the closest hotel from Plaza de Armas, but close enough to enjoy the walk. I strongly recommend it and would stay there again.

We stayed here 3 nights based on TA reviews. Our room was very large, the beds were gigantic and it had good lighting. Nice bathrooms too. The breakfast was quite good and the staff are very nice and helpful. It is quiet too, no street noise. It is about a 10 minute walk to the main square on a safe, but gentrifying street. A more charming location, or a view would give this hotel 5 stars.

Free pick up from the airport was good. When we arrived, they gave us cups of tea while we filled in the register. The rooms we stayed in were great - clean, warm and modern with good wi-fi. All the rooms open into shared open air courtyards or balconies, which makes them feel very open and light. My girlfriend asked for some assistance with understanding the instructions with some medicine and the staff took the pamphlet away and typed up and printed a full translation of the whole thing - incredibly helpful. The breakfasts were great - it's a buffet, but good quality and variety - a great way to start the day. It's less than 10 minutes to walk to the main square, but they are doing a lot of development on the road at the moment, so it can feel a little desolate for short stretches of the walk out to the hotel where construction work is ongoing. But that is a small point and one that will be remedied shortly when the work is completed on the buildings. A good place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top of the hotel are much roomier with higher ceilings, but they get colder (althou...

Free pick up from the airport made for a good start. We had a superior room for 5 days plus a day after the trek. Large, clean room which had extra blankets and a heater. It does get cool in the evenings. Breakfast was buffet style with more than enough choice. Coca tea is available all day, to help with altitude. Staff are super friendly. We loved the fact that it was in a quiet location and it was an easy 10 minute walk to the square.
Many of the day tours now leave out Pisac as the road bridge is down. We had an interesting day there on the local bus for 3 soles. Walk across the bridge then get a tuk tuk (1sole) to the market. A taxi to the ruins cost 25 soles. There is a way to walk down which takes 30-40 mins.
Cusco has a great choice of restaurants and coffee shops and always has lots going on. It is very safe as there are tourist police everywhere.
We left our suitcases with the hotel while we were on the trek. They will give you an envelope for valuables if you want to leave items in their safe.
We had a great stay here and would recommend it.
