Antares Mystic Hotel
Ranked #82 of 173 Hotels in Cusco
Reviewed 7 May 2013

This is a good value hotel with excellent, kind staff. Rooms aren't luxurious but are clean and comfortable. Their breakfast was nice as well - bread, scrambled eggs, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee or tea. I recommend this hotel for the budget traveller.

There's nothing wrong with this hotel, but it is a bit underwhelming. The staff is friendly. The rooms are small. For the most part the beds are comfortable, but they could definitely be thicker and softer.

This place was fine. They forgot to pick us up at the airport and we have to arrange a taxi to drop us off. They paid for the taxi. The staff was very friendly and we were able to store our luggage while on the Inca trail. No cost. We did have them do laundry twice. First time - late, second time - right on time. Rooms were large and clean. Breakfast was standard and they made it early one morning at our request. Nice. Place to lock valuables in lockers in the lobby. Worked out good. Nothing fancy, but I would stay again for the price.

There is nothing particularly romantic or special about this spot - but given the price, perhaps that is just fine. There was plenty of hot water, and the breakfast was pretty standard. The service was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. What bothered me was that the windows either pointed into an interior courtyard, or out into loud traffic. This meant a relative lack of fresh air, and given the carpeting, this made the room smell either musty or like cleaning solution. The beds were a little rough - I could feel the springs. One plus is that this hotel is located on the more 'real' side of town - away from the main tourist attractions by a few blocks, but still close enough to walk. So for those who want to see more of the real city - the local market, local bustle of the city, street vendors, etc. - this could be great. For the price, perhaps this is all fine - but given the great selection of historical hotels in Cusco, it seems like there might be better options. (For a similar price, Niños is in the same area and much more charming.)

I stayed here two nights with my family on September 2012, and would again.

Picking us up from the airport was included in the price and they were very friendly to us. They offered us coca leaf tea upon our arrival to the hotel, to avoid getting the altitude sickness, and we loved it.

Next day we were going to Machu Picchu so we woke up very early (3AM) and they had breakfast ready for us, and we payed a small fee and they took us to the train station in their van. They also kept our bulky luggage in our rooms while we stayed a night in the Machupicchu town.

When I return to Cusco, I'll stay here, for sure. Keep it up! :)

The staff made us feel at home. We got to know them and call them by name. The hotel is very clean, and even though the beds may not look fancy, they are very comfortable, and warm. They cook your breakfast to order. They even helped my wife when she was feeling sick from the altitude. They are located about 5 blocks from the downtown, that could be a drawback for some, however they are located right in front of the San Pedro market, where you can find affordable souvenirs, as well as great fresh fruits. If you are a Budget traveler like we are, I recommend you call ahead and ask Alicia the manager, to help you book your tours, we saved hundreds by doing so. Just don't forget to do it early, I'm glad we did, as Train and Machu Picchu tickets are limited. This is a great affordable place to stay, you won't regret it.

Our group of 4 adults stayed 4 nights. We truly appreciated the pick up service at the airport on our arrival. The hotel is a 2 star hotel and for that level I guess it is a good value. The carpet was a little dingy and worn. Nothing gross but not at all plush rooms. The breakfast was good. The service was awesome. The owner arranged a private van for us. Much cheaper than going as sheeple on the tour buses. She changed our money at good rates and got our tourist passes. We got up at 3 AM for the machu picchu hike and she was up with us. She didn't even flinch at that level of service. Im sure she does the same for all her guests. Most of the time you will not be in your room so room quality is not that important.
The hotel is across from the public market so it is noisy and a slightly lower class neighborhood. Not unsafe. One block away from the tourist sights. But one block on the "other side of the tracks"
Overall I would stay there again and save the money.
Enjoy.
