“Staying at this hotel made our trip to Cusco simple!”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Torre Dorada for 4 nights in early July. If you are looking for someplace to stay that is affordable, but has excellent perks, this hotel is for you. First, the desk reception gentlemen are very informed about the places to see and eat in the Sacred Valley. Saoul (spelling could be wrong, my apoplogies) was absolutely amazing. He arranged both a car tour of the ruins close to Cusco, as well as a full day private car tour around some towns in the Sacred Valley directly from the hotel. The full day tour was with a tour guide names Carlos, who I would highly recommend. He had immense knowledge of the history and culture of Peru and was really entertaining to be around. In addition to tours, Saoul recommended restaurants that were stellar. Conveniently, the hotel has car service to and from the Plaza. You only need give them 10 minutes notice and they will come and get you. Super easy! Finally, the hotel stored our luggage for us for two days while we went to Machu Picchu and then had it waiting in our room upon our return. We were blown away by the service.

Besides the excellent service, the rooms were clean and comfortable. I would not stay here if you want a spacious room or a fancy bathtub and TV, but the rooms functioned really well for us considering we were out most of the time. The hotel also offers oxygen and coca tea to help with altitude sickness, as well as offering an excellent breakfast. If I am ever lucky enough to go back to Cusco I will stay here again for sure.

My friends and I had planned to stay at Hotel Torre Dorada before our Salkantay trek, and to migrate to another hotel upon our return from the trek. However, our first two days at this hotel made us feel so comfortable and cared for that we changed our plans and decided to remain at Torre Dorada for our entire sojourn in Cusco. The staff was unbelievably helpful and courteous, attending to and even anticipating our needs quickly. The hotel is not close to the tourist destinations in the city, but the efficient (and free) car service the hotel provides more than made up for it. Frankly, after our intense trek, we were happy to be shuttled around by car. The hotel is in a quiet area. The rooms are small, but comfortable. The only television, however, is located in the common space on each floor. Tea and bottled water are available 24/7. The free breakfasts included freshly made eggs. This felt like a home away from home.

Torre Dorada has a very high satisfaction rating on Tripadvisor. This along with their “take you anywhere and back in Cusco complimentary car service” is why we booked our 5 days with them. Pros: the above; pleasant breakfast room with simple but wholesome breakfast items; located away from the city and the constant intense diesel fumes; quiet; free internet in lobby;very helpful staff. Cons: no heating except with free standing electrical heaters in rooms and lounge area on each floor; unheated breakfast room was freezing. It is possibly a little overpriced at $110. Nothing really negative to say, but would probably try somewhere else on another visit just for an alternate experience.

Room Tip: If you ask they do have full size king bed rooms. Choose a lower floor to avoid gasping for breath.

After reading trip advisor recommendations, my friend and I decided to stay here before and after our trip to machu picchu on the inca trail. The staff is so friendly and the driver, Mario, was wonderful too! We had such a nice time and breakfast was good. There was always hot water and wifi. I highly recommend this hotel!

A bit far from downtown (Plaza de armas) and the breakfast was underwhelming. But they make up for it with excellent, courteous service. Free shuttle to take you downtown whenever you want and to the airport as well. Free wi-fi. Friendly staff, clean, quiet location. Overall, a positive experience.

We had a wonderful time here. The service was amazing! The rooms were very clean, and the breakfasts were great. The location is a bit out of the way, but the shuttle service compensates for this. I highly recommend this hotel, especially to families.

Stayed here before and after the Inca Trail. Top notch service and a nice clean place to stay. Loved the staff and quaint little hotel. As with just about all of Peru, don't depend too much on the Interne. It's very sporadic. Highly recommended.
