Hotel Casona les Pleiades
Ranked #2 of 411 Cusco B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2013

We stayed here for four nights towards the end of our trip to Peru. Helpful staff, good breakfast, loads of restaurants within easy walking distance. Uphill from the main plaza, but so is everything in San Blas. With extra blankets and a heater in the room, there was no way we would be cold (we didn't need half the blankets) and appreciated being able to open the windows/doors onto the tiny balcony ( even if it let in the noisy music from down the street).

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the street have the disadvantage of late night music from the bars nearby.

Very nice place with really comfortable beds and good shower. Location is very good if you don't mind climb up the hill loads of quality restaurants nearby. Staff very friendly and breakfast good.
Only complaint we had was with our final bill. We booked through booking.com and I'm not sure who the fault lay with but when when we were checking out according to our booking.com invoice we expected to pay $288 but were charged $320. It wasn't a fortune but just left a bad taste.
All in all though a nice place and happy stay.

Safe haven. Very good position, short walk to cafes, restaurants, shops and Plaza de Armas. Day staff were pleasant and helpful. Wifi free but functioned best in the atrium. Breakfast: nothing fancy but quite sufficient. Room 1 was clean and quiet but very dark. Plenty of hot water in the shower - but only freezing cold water in the sink. We had to pay for bottled water.

The hotel had everything we could hope for - friendly English-speaking staff, clean and quiet rooms, hot water and space heater, free (included-in-the-rate) continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
This hotel is not next to Plaza de Armas in Cuzco as many other hotels you could find. But its only a 8-10 mins hike (I say hike cause its quite steep with some steps) from the main square or an 8 Soles cab-ride. We stayed at Room # 7 which had an awesome view of the city and the mountains beyond due to its location. The only small drawbacks are that the hotel's doorstep is inaccessible to vehicles (but Peruvvians are extremely helpful with moving bags around) and not a lot of people in Cuzco are familiar with its exact location. It wasn't a big problem for us but might be if you have mobility issues.
Now onto other great things - the staff was extremely co-operative with all our requests one being serving us breakfast at 3:30 before our trip to Machu Picchu and keeping our large bag with them for a couple of days (MP trains do not have space for large bags). We felt very safe and cared for and the staff was extremely trustworthy. Would definitely recommend staying there!

My Husband, two friends, and I were recently in Cusco for 15 days. The days that we were not hiking we stayed here and it was incredible. Even though we were three hours late landing in Cusco our taxi was ready and waiting to pick us up and transport us to the hotel (all arranged by the hotel and free). Nestled in one of the nicer parts of Cusco, it is an easy walk to anywhere in the city you want to go from this hotel. The rooms were amazingly comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was filling. The staff is so nice and accomidating. We ended up hiking for 5 days and had a lot of laundry which they helped us do without issue. I would stay here again.

The only downside is the loud bar right next to the hotel. I never heard it or had problems with it, but my Husband is a light sleeper and would wake up from the music. They tended to play pretty late. If we didn't have to get up early and hike this wouldn't have been an issue, but he had a hard time with it. It still didn't ruin the stay enough to warent not staying there.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are quieter. Otherwise the location is amazing.

My friends, family and I have stayed here for 2 nights to acclimatize and 1 day after Salkantay trek in October. The location here is great for exploring the city as you are in the middle of the old town. I love the cobblestone paths, the nearby architecture and people. There are lots of cafes and restaurants nearby too (may feel a little bit of noise if you are facing the front but we sleep okay). You can simply walk down to the old palace and the main plaza for sightseeing/ tours booking in 10 minutes. However beware that you need to walk uphill upon return and it may be a little stressful for some people. Taxi didn't stop at the front door but will stop in a small square 100meters away where you will need to carry your luggage up the path and stairs. It's worth remembering the name of the small square as most taxi drivers don't know where the b&b is and will drop you at the main square. The room and hotel is comfy, warm in the room with hot shower. good wifi connection. Everyone is very helpful and friendly here and they showed you with a map and every sightseeing/ dining details around the place, tour booking, taxi fares etc. Breakfast is nice (unlimited bread, cheese, ham, cereals, coffee/tea/chocolate/coca tea, and you can order fruit salad with eggs. I am also touched by them preparing a continental breakfast for us on the day we start our trail at 4am and that all our luggages have not only be stored safely but was already in our room when we check in again late arriving back from Machu Picchu. I love this place and will definitely recommend my friends to come!

The hotel is located about 4 blocks from the Plaza de Armas (main square) up a hill in San Isidro and therefor a bit away from the noise.
You can't be driven directly to the front of the hotel. The nearest square - San Isidro - is about 100m away.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were big enough with all of the basics that you'd need like bedside table, reading lamps, storage for clothing and shower. The beds were comfortable with plenty of blankets for warmth. They also had a TV and heater in the room as well, but we didn't use either of these.
Comparing with the surrounding price level in Cusco, I consider the value for money rather high at 8 of 10.
I cannot comment on the breakfast, as we left very very early in the morning to be picked up for the trek.
