Reviewed 26 August 2014

Great ground floor suite with large ensuite off. Large comfy bedroom, and full sitting room. Upstairs rooms a littl noisy with timber floors and stairs. A separate eat-in kitchen upstairs for brekky. Very close to a host of restaurants and the main attractions of Cusco town square.

A very good staging point for Machu Piccho.

Room Tip: Stay on the ground, narrow and noisy stairs await above.

I selected this place after reading the reviews and I have to concur with the positive ones listed below. This was my favorite place to stay on a 3 and 1/2 week trip to Peru. Wakapunku is located in a great place between the main plaza and the San Blas neighborhood. The design of the rooms is really classy and comfortable - similar to a European design with an Andes twist. Very comfortable bed, great bathroom, and the fridge is really helpful too. Wifi worked consistently well. The breakfast were very good as was the array of teas and fruit that were left out all day. And staff at the desk (Diana and Liseth) should get big props as they were so helpful and made me feel very comfortable. This was my second trip to Cusco and I am looking forward to staying here again on my next visit.

We have 2 adults and 2 kids of 12 and 10 years old travelling together but unfortunately most of the hotels near Plaza de Armas only provide 2 double rooms for us. However, Wakapunku Hotel can meet our request to provide a spacious family room for our residence - most economical. With its central location, it's only a 3-4 min. walk to the plaza. A conveniently located and comfortable hotel!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with 3-4 people, please do ask the hotel to provide you No.1 which can accommo...

I was so surprised with the quality of this hotel. I loved the fresh flowers in my room and the comfortable bed, as well as the big shower. The breakfast was also very welcome with the selection of fresh fruits, yoghurt, breads and cereals. Staff were very helpful and the wifi was fast- definitely a good choice!!

Room Tip: Ask to not be put near the breakfast area!

Spent a few nights here and with the wealth of options in Cusco I wished we had gone somewhere else. The room we had was tiny and I always felt claustrophobic and my husband had to struggle not to hit his head on the roof. Staff spoke basic English and generally didn’t seem to care about any request we made so we were worried about leaving our luggage there when we went to Machu Picchu but it turned out ok.
The main positive of this hotel is its location, just a few blocks from the main square but after speaking with other travellers who had paid a similar amount we felt we could have done better for this price.

Everyone who worked here was very pleasant and helpful. The whole process of reserving, checking in and checking out all went smoothly. They emailed us ahead of time if we'd like an airport pickup which we did reserve and were greeted by the driver holding a sign at the airport. Very happy with our room (4) which was spacious, clean with modern decor and a small balcony. Breakfast was a spread (on same floor as room 4) of coffee, tea, milk, cold boiled water, sliced cheese, meat, fresh diced fruit (kiwi, papaya, etc), empanadas, fresh juice, kefir, rolls, jam, cocoa leaves, sweet bread (sometimes orange), etc. Sweet, sunny area in which to eat too. Very nice of staff to keep our suitcases safely stored while we went on a hike to Choquequirao for 5 days (gave us tags to put on cases of which we were given half of each tag with same number on it; we just left the cases in our room the day we left and they were placed back in our room upon our return). The hotel is an easy walk to the plaza and sites with small restaurants in easy walking distance too. Definitely is a great value hotel with caring service and we would return.
