Great staff that helped us with our travel plans around the city transportation strike. They held our big luggage for free when we went to Aguas Calientes overnight. The rooms were nice with hot showers but the common areas are the highlight. Great space to meet others, very pretty courtyard, free internet cafe and wireless, deliciosu breakfast. Also had free coca tea leaves that helped us in adjusting to the altitude. We all agreed we felt like we were coming home when we returned from MP. Very comfortable.

I recently went to Cuzco Peru and stayed here. The staff was very friendly, the desk girls always pleasant. Jesus the manager helped us with hiring a driver to take us to see the country side, make reservations to have a peruvian dish of roasted guiney pig, to exchanging currency to transferring our luggage to our last accommodations and just a great guy. The owner to my embarrassment, which I don’t know how to pronounce his name, was very interested in our comfort while our stay and was very accomodating. They only served breakfast which I found this especially good as they are serving breakfast very early until 10:00 am and we would enjoy other restaurants for a true flavor of what Cuzco has to offer. The beds are very comfortable and the business center in the hotel offers 4 computers with internet.I wish I was back in Cuzco, what a beautiful city.

We had great 3 night stay at Rumi Punku before and after Inca Trail. It is simply enjoyable nice hotel with excellent location and warm service from caring staff. There were two couples in our party, and all four agree: the best hotel during our Peru trip.
One quick idea: get a bottle of wine in the evening in hotel courtyard, very nice indeed!

We stayed 4 nights at the Rumi Punku hotel. The hotel was beautiful and located in a very nice, safe area. The staff was always helpful and spoke very good English. They have a buisness center for their guests that has 4 computers with Skype set up on all 4 computers. It was very chilly while we were in Cusco however the beds were extreamly comfortable and very warm. The heater also kept the room a little warmer. The hotel has quite a few small garden areas that quests can use to rest and socialize during their stay. Unlike some of the other reviews, we found the hotel VERY quite. Breakfast was amazing, they had eggs, bacon, breads, fruits and some grains and it was offered from 5-10am I believe. We thought that this hotel was an excellent value compared to what $90 usually gets in the US.

I was quite disappointed with my stay at Rumi Punku after reading all the good reviews on this forum. First of all, I requested a quiet room months ahead, however, when we arrived we were given the room closest to the lobby. As all the rooms are facing the street and there's almost no noise isolation in the windows, it is quite impossible to get a good night sleep. You can hear people passing by and talking outside. Secondly, there was no hot water, you had to leave it on for 10 minutes, and even then it was slightly warm. It was quite freezing at night as well. Finally, the last night when we had already checked out before leaving early next morning, somebody knocked on our door (after 10pm) when we were already asleep. They requested we pay them 3 soles (!) for a bottle of water that we used (as they couldn't wait till next morning). There were also minor issues with poor toilet flushing, light bulb powered off etc. All in all, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Only downside is wifi is shocking. Very unreliable- but there is a complementary computer room with 4 pcs.

Good clean option for a stay. Have secure lockup for a few days off to machu so you don't have to take all your travel bags.
