“Thank you Torre Dorada - the place to stay in Cusco.”
Reviewed 24 February 2009

We had a wonderful two week stay in Cusco. Our choice to stay at Torre Dorada helped to make our trip to Peru the experience of a lifetime.

I have never stayed in a hotel where I felt that that owner (Peggy) and the staff were both family and friend. From taxi services at all hours of the day to having our own personal travel agency, they have a passion for taking care of people. Peggy and her staff effectively helped us plan our entire vacation including a privately guided tour around the Sacred Valley, a day trip to Machu Picchu, a 3 day excursion to Puerto Maldonado for a little Amazon forest experience, and finally, they made certain I arrived safely “home” after my Inca Trail hike. The hotel is located in a nice quiet neighborhood a very short distance away from the hustle and bustle of the Plaza de Armas and we always felt safe waiting for the pickup at the now famous (for us anyway) Gatos Market.

I also should mention that the breakfasts we superb and they make the best chicken soup should you ever need it on your adventure ;)

I would highly recommend the Torre Dorada especially if you want a personal touch.

If you're going to be staying in Cusco, the choice is simple: STAY AT THIS HOTEL.

The staff are simply wonderful, and Peggy the owner, went out of her way to ensure not only that our stay at the hotel was perfect, but also that we saw the best parts of Peru by arranging private tours for us and sitting down with us for a good half an hour to work on an itinerary with us.

Your stay includes free transfers to and from the centre of town which is fantastic.

I have many friends and family who wish to go to Cusco and I give them the same advice - stay at Hotel Torre Dorada.

We stayed at Torre Dorada before AND after our Inca Trail expedition. The owner and her staff made sure we were comfortable and well taken care. It was a welcome oasis after a hectic day in Cusco or upon returning from the trials of trails. Clean, reliable and efficient.

We had a very pleasant experience staying at the Hotel Torre Dorada. The service and attention to guests needs was exceptional. We made 2 overnight trips outiside of Cusco and were very happy to return to our "home base" , the Hotel Torre Dorada. The rooms were simple but very clean and comfortable and included the plus of wireless internet. The only minor inconvenience was that we were not in the center of town, but Torre Dorada drove us the 10 minutes into town whenever we wanted to go, and picked us up when we called for them. The benefit of being outside of the center of Cusco is that it was extremely quiet and peaceful in the hotel.

My family had a wonderful experience at Torre Dorada! Peggy and all her staff made our stay very memorable. They all went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Our son suffered from altitude sickness and they came instantly with oxygen and advice to help him out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Cusco.

We've stayed in much fancier hotels but have never received the kind of service we received at Torre Dorada in Cusco, Peru. Peggy, the owner, is the most dedicated hotel owner we've ever encountered. It was obvious from our arrival that she cared deeply about our every need. And she has translated that to her caring staff. No, the hotel is not right in town, but I don't think you wanna stay right in town. Plus, it's only a few minutes cab ride to the square & she includes this service as part of your stay. The breakfasts are very good, prepared with attention to detail & beautifully presented. Plenty of freshly squeezed juice, incredible fruits, breads & most importantly for us...COFFEE!!! Peggy is always there in the breakfast room every day making sure everything is good for her guests. I speak Spanish & could communicate with the drivers. My family does not speak Spanish. But Peggy, as well as her front desk staff, speaks perfect English. This is the only place we'd stay in Cusco on a return trip. The rooms are more than adequately sized, immaculately clean, plenty of uninterrupted hot water & a nice sitting room outside each room. Cusco is a very large, busy city & this hotel is in a neighborhood. I noticed some complaints about dogs barking from other reviews. This turned out to be true. There are stray dogs all over Peru. It is inescapable. You'll just have to live with this fact anywhere you stay. But I suspect you'll have a full itinerary each day & by the time you're ready to go to bed each night, a few dogs barking won't cause you to miss any "Z's".

Thanks Peggy & staff for such a wonderful experience in Cusco, Peru! We wish you much success.

Just as others have said, this is probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in - simply due to the fantastic staff and service. Peggy, Rafael and the team do everything possible to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Although slightly out of the centre, they provide free taxis there and back. We never had to wait more than 5 minutes.

Cusco was our favourite part of Peru and much of this is down to Torre Dorada. We really hope to return one day.
