Casa Hospedaje El Balcon Colonial
Ranked #170 of 498 Speciality Lodging in Cusco
Reviewed 15 July 2011

When we arrived in the street outside my heart sank but as soon as you're through the doors into the pretty garden court yard it all looks much more homely.
We stayed here twice whilst in Peru and the rooms were both quite basic but good and clean. The location is excellent, close to the main Plaza but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
The breakfast was fine although the coffee is a bit dodgy. The breakfast staff could have been more friendly but they were perfectly pleasant.
Overall it is a good place to stay to see a wonderful city.

Reviewed 12 July 2011

This was our second hostel in Cusco - we moved from El Tuco to be closer to the centre, and slightly regretted it. It is super cheap, at 40s for a double with shared bathroom / 50s with ensuite, and accordingly basic.

The family who own it are absolutely lovely, but the place is a bit run-down. Wifi is free and unlike El Tuco, towels and soap are included. It's cleanish (sheets good, though the floor had someone else's sock on it when we arrived) and the bathrooms and showers are fine, although there are no toilet seats. You also get use of the kitchen, but shared with the family. Ultimately it's a great location and fine for the price, but maybe best to think of it as a nice homestay!
