“Great value and cosy”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 via mobile

WakaPunku was the second hotel we stayed at in Cusco, and by far the best. The rooms were very cosy, and the service efficient and attentive. We really enjoyed our stay. There was also lots of storage space where we left out bags whilst on our lares trek.
Deserves a few more *'s!

Wakapunku is the best small hotel I´ve stayed in Cusco. It´s very close to Plaza de Armas (main square) and to San Blas traditional district and it´s cozy streets where you will find many bars and restaurants.
The staff was very friendly and you can even meet the owner who is always around checking that everyting runs smoothly. The room was clean and charming. The breakfast was nice as well and you can store your luggage if you are going to the Inca Trail. I´ll definitely give 5 stars to this hotel in Cusco!

We used Wakapunku as our base of operations while in Cusco. We stayed 5 nights prior to, and 2 nights following, our Inca Trail trek. We negotiated a great rate due to the length of our stay, excellent value. The location is easy walking distance to many sites, shops, and eating/drinking establishments. The staff were super helpful, aided us with an early check-in, a late check-out, and storage of our things while trekking. We took advantage of the boiled water and tea and juice available. We did have a plumbing issue (plugged shower drain) that was quickly and efficiently repaired. The room was clean and comfortable and a perfect size for us with lots of storage. There were plentiful American style power outlets. I can see no reason not to highly recommend Wakapunku to most travelers.

Room Tip: Room #4 is the largest; both #3 and #4 are balcony rooms on a busy street so be prepared for the app...

Going to Cusco on business, I wanted a quiet, clean and comfortable room to relax in during my stay. I got all this and more at Wakapunku. Despite being in a room that faced out onto the road (which has one of the most popular cafes for tourists in Cusco) I was never really aware of my location in the hotel until I stepped out onto the balcony which provides a great overview of the hustle going on below.

The staff were excellent, making sure they catered to my every need and the location was just superb. A 5 minute walk gets you to the main square of Cusco and a similar 5 minute walk to San Blas provides breathtaking views of the city.

Use this hotel wherever possible!

Room Tip: For a slight increase in price, take a room with a balcony to enjoy the fresh air and relax watching...

My boyfriend and I stayed in both balcony rooms as we used the hotel as our main "base" between trips/tours around Peru.

The staff were attentive, the kitchen is well stocked with tea, the rooms were kept clean and the price is reasonable if you want an affordable midrange hotel.

The location is great, try Jack's cafe which is on the corner!

Best features.....proximity to sites...clean....good breakfast..very good restaurant right next door.....and the very good service at the front desk....very helpfull and sincere plus excellent English........Not so best.......kitchen staff are in at about 530 so with the central kitchen one can easily here her at work.......my only beef!
Otherwise a 5 Star joint from my experience!!

This was our second visit to Cusco, we just love the place! We found this hotel on Expedia, and were happy with the location (which proved to be 100% correct) so we booked.

The hotel has been renovated to a good standard, and the girl behind the counter was a doll! absolutely fantastic service. We found the hotel to be good value for what we paid, $90 odd bucks for a smallish standard room. Breakfast could do with a little more variety, but it was more than adequate. Location was absolutely brilliant and we loved the snazzy new bathrooms!

Room Tip: We had the green room.. it was great!!!!!!
