Casa de Campo Hotel

Reviewed 4 July 2013

The location, character and texture of this hotel easily outweigh the negatives. Situated vertically on a hillside just the other side of Sacsayhuaman ruins, commanding views of Cusco are spectacular. Bring your panoramic camera!

Its all downhill to San Blas and the Plaza de Armas. A taxi back from the square is only about S7, if you just can't climb back, although we usually made the walk. Lots of eats and drinks and services on Calle Choquechaca on the way to the Historical District.

By the time we left on 6/24, the street out front was being patched up from the weeks of maintenance which forced taxis to park below and forcing an extra 2 blocks of climbing. But one will be forced to climb some steps once inside and the higher you go the better the view. In my 50's, it did take about 3 days before I became acclimated to the altitude. The coca leaves helped.

Bathrooms are cramped and leaky. Space heaters in the rooms are unreliable. Plank walkways telegraphed every step. Amenities are almost nonexistent.

But I fell in love with this place and would stay here again. The staff was energetic and helpful. The location (view) is unbeatable.

.

Room Tip: Ask for a fireplace. Ask about the climb to the room.

A very awesome hotel with great views of the city and very friendly staff. Roxanne was a very friendly host!! The hotel is located really close to the Cusco historical square. There is a few stairs to negotiate but the view is well worth the work.

We recently spent our first four days in Cusco at Casa de Campo. This hotel sits on the side of a hill in the San Blas area of Cusco and has great views of the city. It has very interesting architecture - I'm guessing that it has expanded as business allowed - and the result is a number of rooms on varying levels that cover a considerable portion of a hillside. Gardens surround the rooms with the reception area being on the bottom level and a breakfast room about mid way up the property that looks out onto the city. The hotel offers a good breakfast each morning, which includes cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, jam, and cheese. The rooms are relatively small, clean and cozy and the floors are tile (no rugs), which can be quite chilly during the winter months; however, a space heater was provided. The bathrooms are functional and offer hot showers. We found the staff to be very nice and accommodating. Our group required three rooms, and when one room was not acceptable due to size, they quickly found us another room that worked. They also provide a reasonable laundry service, which we were very pleased with. This hotel is located in a great area of town - it's quiet, convenient to shops and restaurants, and not far from the Plaza de Armas.

Room Tip: Be aware that you must be prepared to climb many stairs to get to some of the rooms on the upper lev...

We had a great time staying here at Casa de Campo in Cusco. The rooms were very home grown, fun, artistic and comfortable. We had a fireplace in our room where the staff lit a fire for us on 2 nights. Great breakfasts every morning in a glass enclosed room with stunning views of Cusco below.

As a group of 6, (a couple and 4 boys - 3 teenagers and 1 preteen), we had rooms 11 and 12 at Casa de Campo for 3 nights, with one night away between the second and third nights. I had made reservations at this hotel prior to reading reviews about it. After reading the reviews, I decided to keep our reservations because it sounded interesting and a little adventuresome. Turned out we really liked the hotel, and the location was great in the San Blas neighborhood. This was the boys' favorite hotel of our trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the beds were great. Nice thick comforters meant we didn't need the heater at night. The few times we showered, we had no problems with water pressure and had plenty of hot water. The coca tea was available at all hours in the breakfast room, and it was a big help when the altitude led to a draggy feeling. From the hotel we walked down to the plaza de armas several times, as well as up to the Sacsaywamán ruins. The hotel included airport transport, which made getting to and from the hotel quite convenient. There are many great places to eat within easy walking distance of the hotel, as well as small markets where we bought sandwich makings, treats, water, inka cola. The hotel has lots of little sitting areas, some of which are covered. The staff at this hotel is very helpful, and like all places we stayed, has very limited English. (Not unexpected, and not a problem for us.) As other reviews have indicated, the hotel architecture is amazing, as are the views from the upper levels. One morning we had to leave early for our trip to Machu Picchu, so the hotel made breakfast available early, which was very nice. This hotel is not fancy, and requires a good amount of physical mobility to navigate, both of which add to its charm. We really loved our time here and would stay here again.

Room Tip: We only had rooms 11 and 12, but were quite happy with them. We never heard any noise from any other...

The hotel is a bit disorganized. We booked a superior room, a suite, and they gave us a standart room. At the check out time the hotel wanted to charge for the more expensive room. Besides, we had to fight in order to have a parking lot (the booking website shows the parking to be free!). It has many stairs to reach the rooms (it can be a problem), but the view of the rooms is wonderful. However, the hotel's decor is unique and we would recommend it to younger people who want a little distance from the noise of the main square.

O hotel é bonito, mas um pouco desorganizado! Nós reservamos pelo site um quarto superior, com lareira e etc e quando chegamos deram-nos um quarto mediano. Tivemos que brigar e muito para não pagar o estacionamento, enquanto no site diz ser de graça. Para ir para os quartos tem que subir muitas escadas (pode ser problema por conta da falta de ar). A vista dos quartos são maravilhosas. O hotel fica em local silencioso, mas um pouco distande dos locais centrais (pouco).

You can find hotel cheaper with the same quality.

Upon arriving in Cusco, our choice in out of the way hotels was confirmed as the taxi drivers from the airport insisted on charging a higher rate to get there. We refused no less than three different drivers (all offering the same S./45 price) before the last one tricked us into agreeing to the exact same price. The hotel is about 20-30 minutes from the airport through the wonderful world of Cusco and ends at a set of stairs that must be climbed to reach the destination. The steps to get to the hotel weren't a big deal (although a few breaks were required as we hadn't acclimated at all when we arrived), but once inside the hotel, several more sets of stairs led our host to call it a mini Inka trail as we struggled to get ourselves to the top while he carried all of our luggage effortlessly.

The reason for the many stairs is decidedly for the spectacular view of Cusco that the hotel boasts. It was breathtaking and definitely worth the trips up and down. In addition, the stairs did prepare us somewhat for the four day hike to Machu Picchu we had waiting for us.

We booked room 48, which is a bungalow disconnected from any other rooms and includes a jacuzzi tub and a fireplace in addition to the windows overlooking the view of the city. The tub turned out to be more of a pain than it was probably worth, but we indulged anyway. It does work, if you're willing to work with it. We never used the fireplace for fear of the room getting too hot with no recourse (while it was chilly in November, the heater and blankets provided were more than sufficient for comfortable sleeping).

The complimentary breakfast consists of coffee, cocoa tea, milk, juice, pineapple, papaya, bread, jams, honey, cereals, avocado, tomatoes and olives, which was typical of all the complimentary breakfasts we ate in Peru. It was lovely, but not quite filling enough if you're looking for protein. I did see other guests enjoying eggs, which I think are available upon request and possibly for an additional fee.

The wifi is really only available in the cafeteria facility and wasn't reliable even in that room, but they have a computer available for use. It needs major updates (popups constantly telling the user of such), but we weren't really there to use the internet so it worked out fine.

The staff only seems to speak sporadic English. They tend to respond in Spanish to English questions, which works out well for someone like myself who speaks only sporadic Spanish but can understand much more. They were always extremely helpful and went out of their way to give directions, assist with bags, or answer questions. We left our suitcase with the hotel while we hiked the Inka Trail and had no problems.

Overall, our experience at Casa de Campo was wonderful. The area (if you're willing to get there) is marvelous. We even ran into an unattended alpaca on the way back one night and took several excited photos. The end of the street seems to be a make out point for Cusquenos, but we were never bothered by anyone. In fact, the people of Peru, much like the people at our hotel, seem to be willing to go out of their way to help just about anyone.

We had only one complaint during our stay. On the night of our return from Machu Picchu, the water wasn't on. There was a trickle that allowed me to brush my teeth, but a shower was absolutely out of the question. The flow had returned when we woke up (and requested a late check out), but it randomly stopped during both of our showers, leading to a frantic and soap-covered, "Baby! The water went off!" "What do you want me to do about it?" from each of us. It did return after only a short wait, but it was not exactly a pleasant way to shower.

I would definitely recommend this hotel because the view of the city is amazing, the location is a very short walk from the Plaza de Armas and the people who work there went out of their way to provide good service. This hotel is a great way to enjoy Cusco for a few days.
