“Wonderful Spot to Stay”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Casa Elena is located in the heart of Cusco. The location was perfect, being just a few minutes walk to the central square. There were plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, pharmacies and so forth all around us. The rooms were basic, but they were roomy, well kept and very clean. Breakfast was very filling. The service from Elena was exceptional. She went out of her way to assist us in our travel plans and was extremely accommodating no matter what time we needed to speak with her about our arrangements. She really made the stay perfect for us. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay here.

Hotel is perfeclty located in middle of the city main's attractions, few minutes from Plaza de Armas, just next to San Blas,etc...
Bedrooms are basic but clean.
Breakfast is not exceptionnal but like everywhere in Peru.
Convenient because you can leave your big backpack if yuo go several days in the Scared Valley.

I can't speak highly enough about Casa Elena. As soon as we arrived we were handed steaming cups of coca tea. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We also had wifi in our room, which was great for emailing home.

We stayed at Casa Elena three days and couldn't have been happier with our choice. I'd stay there again in a nanosecond, no questions asked.

My wife and I and our two young sons are beginning our 2nd week of staying here to finalize an adoption. As mentioned in other reviews, the staff are absolutely fantastic. They have gone above and beyond in helping us with our laundry, our breakfasts, and with the extra help we have appreciated in transitioning from a family of 4 to a family of 5 all at once. The showers have endless hot water. The location of the hotel is superb--near everything but just enough removed for privacy and quiet. The owners of the hotel are kind and supportive. They have great contacts in the area for outdoor adventures, medical care, crafts and culture. This is an excellent place to stay in Cusco!

My wife and I have just returned from 9 days in Cusco. A good friend of mine recommended we stay at Casa Elena while in Cusco and we were glad we followed his advice. The owner and staff were friendly and efficient. Hot water in the showers. Plenty of blankets to stay warm. Well located two interesting blocks from the Plaza de Armas, and within walking distance of our favorite restaurants. The price was right. I recommend you stay at Casa Elena when you visit Cusco. I hope this review was helpful.

The steaming hot cup of coca tea that is served to you the minute you arrive with suitcases in hand, is the first indicator that your experience at Casa Elena will be unforgetable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and always impeccably clean. The staff is gracious, helpful and always willing to converse with you even if Spanish is your second language. It is locate within 5 min. walking distance to the main square. Check it out for yourself.
