San Francisco Plaza Hotel
Ranked #61 of 171 Hotels in Cusco
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We stayed in 2 different rooms. The first 2 nights we stayed far enough from the common area that we could barely hear the noise. The last night we right off the common area and we could here the noise late at night and early in the morning. The tour groups would meet in the common area and talk loud enough that we could not sleep.

The people that worked there were friendly and helpful even though we do not speak Spanish. Some of the workers do speak English.

The hotel has a good location. It is close enough to the plaza to walk, but far enough away to make it nice.

Room Tip: No elevator so get a room on the ground floor Get rooms as far from the lobby as possible for quitt...

Awesome place! I recommend. You should totally stop by and check it out if you're in the area.Good value and reasonable pricing. I have got to say they have a friendly atmosphere. I would stay there again.

We stayed here a total of five nights and overall, had a good experience. We had booked a room with a King-sized bed and when we arrived we were taken to a room with two very small beds. Upon asking for a room with a larger bed, we were taken to a huge suite that had two floors--bathroom and sitting area on the first floor and bedroom in a loft upstairs. It even had a balcony overlooking the street in front of the hotel. The suites are located just upstairs from the main lobby, which is convenient, but can also be noisy at night if they have group reservations for dinner. The staff were very accommodating--particularly Luis and Miguel. Breakfast was great every morning but we also ate dinner there one night and it was just okay. Our only two complaints--the front desk did not always have soles on hand for us to change out our dollars and the bathrooms do seem to have some water leakage issues. It seems to be not so much from broken fixtures but poor engineering, but was only a minor inconvenience.

Room Tip: If you don't like the first room they show you, don't hesitate to ask to see another! The s...

We stayed here on 5/12/2014 & 5/14/2014. All the arrangements were done for us via a tour package that I booked through CTM tours.

Overall, I am satisfied with this hotel, I do recommend it and would return. Minor details don't make this a 5-star hotel. One key thing with me that I appreciate is that It's CLEAN, this is a must with me. The staff is professional and friendly. The building itself is a mixture of modern and rustic, with some "indigenous" & religious art and decor. The location is great because it's in a small street, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main plaza, but still of walking distance from the center of Cusco. They also offer free wifi, although the connection is weak and seems to disconnect randomly. They do complimentary wake up calls, if you ask for it.

When we arrived the staff informed us that they have a terrace on the rooftop, accessible to their customers. We decided to visit that rooftop and I must admit, it's a very nice view of the city.


Our room was clean and spacious. My only complain is that the bed was too hard, there is no heater and considering that it gets very cold in Cusco, the blankets the hotel provides aren't enough to keep warm. They also didn't have any hair conditioner, only shampoo and even when I went to the front desk to ask, they had no conditioner. I was bummed because for once I didn't take my toiletry bag only to have the hotel not offer what I needed. (My mistake.) There is however, a nice sized tub to soak in, which helped after our long arduous hike up Huayna Picchu.

WARNING: The lobby floors are of rocky material, apparently waxed or somehow cleaned in a way that makes the floor VERY SLIPPERY. I decided to put on my sandals as soon as we arrived, to rest my feet, and decided to walk out into the lobby and nearly fell on the slippery floor. Also the floors on the second floor creek a lot and feel unstable. (This is a concern for me.)

The day we arrived we ate at the hotel. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich and I ordered a chicken soup. The sandwich was okay, nothing out of the ordinary. The chicken soup was bland and the potato was still raw, so I was really disappointed. Personally, the price didn't meet the quality.

There are little mom & pop stores around the hotel to help buy basic items like water, snacks, etc. if you don't feel like walking all the way to the main plaza. There is one small restaurant around the corner from the hotel and a place to have your laundry done for you. There is also a small mom and pop pizzeria, approximately half a block away from the corner, which we did try after our return from Machu Picchu. The pizza was done in a rustic oven by a young couple in their golden years. We tried "la especial" which consists of bacon, ham & sausage. They give you a side of mayo and aji to top the pizza with. It was good and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, Cusco eateries don't do take out, which is disappointing when you're tired and trying to just rest and eat in your room.

They serve a "continental" buffet breakfast from 5am - 9am. It's not a huge selection, but satisfies the need. They offer primarily bread, ham, head cheese, cheese, eggs (either scrambled or boiled,) fresh fruit, sausage, dry cereals, jellies, fresh juices, coffee and teas.


Looking forward to returning.

Excelente hotel, but when i was ready to check out, they charged me a 10% premium for paying with a credit card. This was very annoying, at least they should warn you at the time of check in. But except for this, I had a great stay.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel for 3 nights as it is quite different from other places we've been to. The central courtyard, where they set up breakfast, was very nice & there were paintings & other interesting objects in this area. We were in 2 different rooms & both were adequate to good. Yes, we could hear some suitcases being dragged down the steps in the morning but it wasn't a big deal. The breakfasts were very good. We also had a couple meals there as we were too tired to go out. There seems to be a cook on hand in case you want to eat or have a bowl of soup. The staff was very kind & helpful even though we couldn't speak Spanish. It was an easy walk to the square.
