We stayed at Hotel Arqueologo in late July 2014 and it is a very nice hotel in a convenient location. The hotel is an easy walk from the plaza in the center of the city. The free breakfast was actually very good with eggs made to order. The rooms are heated, very clean, and the beds are comfortable as well. The courtyard and cocktail lounge with a nice big fireplace added to the charm of the hotel. But what really makes this hotel stand out is the super helpful and friendly staff. Alfredo helped us print out our boarding passes and called our tour operators for us, called taxis for us. The rest of the staff was also outstanding. We could tell they really wanted to help us in any way they could to make our stay in Cusco a great experience. I would definitely recommend Hotel Arqueologo to anyone.

We love Hotel Arqueologo. We stayed there before and after our week-long Salkantay/Inca trail trek. The first night we were there, we got an incredibly beautiful room with fantastic architectural detail. The bed was up on a loft and the bathroom and sitting area were on the first floor. We loved the rustic look that looked like we were staying under a thatched room. The second room we got was like a regular hotel room, but it had a lovely stained glass window.Each room was unique.

The public spaces were beautiful. The bar has a great sitting area with comfortable couches and chairs. We watched one of the World Cup games there. The hotel gives you a coupon for a free Pisco Sour, which is pretty tasty.

Breakfast is pretty substantial (toast, waffles, eggs, fresh juices,lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, cereal, cheese, and cold cuts). The cafe where the breakfast is at is also very nice looking. We sat down and took our time to enjoy our breakfast.

The service was incredible. The staff is so helpful and nice. We couldn't have asked for better service.

Internet in the rooms can be spotty. We didn't get any WiFi in our first room, but had no problems the second night.

This is not a nice hotel for Peru, this was a really nice hotel anywhere.

After 2 weeks of staying in hostels and trecking I needed some relaxation for my last two nights in Cusco. I treated myself to a loft style suite - room 409 - which was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and there was a lovely view. The staff here are super friendly and helpful and the breakfast which is included is great. Highly recommended.

Dear Ursula,

Thank you for helping us to improve our services with your comments, we are glad that we meet meet your expectations. however let me explain about the hot water and our central system heating.

Concerning these points in february is low season in Peru so we decided to some improvements in the hotel so that's why was the problem with some rooms.

As soon as we knew the problem we moved to another room and we fixed the problem

We will be happy to have you with us again.

Vadick and Martin make the best drinks in the bar/ lounge. Sit by the fire and enjoy the ambiance or chat up the bartenders for an excellent night staying in the hotel while in Cusco. Also has very nice outdoor spaces and a sunroom with a great view of the city where you can eat your breakfast¡
