A friend recommended the Hosteria Rumichaca for my visit to Cusco and the Scared Valley. I contacted Jose and Irene via e-mail and quickly had arranged a reservation for my stay. Jose recommended an itinerary for my 4 days which included Cuzco, Machu Picchu, Pisac, Chinchero and Moray. Jose arranged a driver and guides for each day of my visit. Additionally, transportation to and from the airport was provided.
The Hosteria has a house in Cuzco that allowed me to take a short rest after my overnight flight and before seeing the sites of the City.
All of my guides spoke very good English and were knowledgeable of the history and local historical sites. The guides were flexible and allowed me to adjust the itinerary for the day.
The accommodations at the Hosteria Rumichaca were of top quality. The room and bed was comfortable which also included a bathroom with a shower. There was a very nice living room with a fireplace and a dining room where the meals were served. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included in the quoted price.
The meals were quite good and included some local dishes, but were not overly exotic.
Jose and Irene were very friendly and made sure that my trip was going well. Additionally the staff was friendly and attentive.
A tip to remember this is more of a bed and breakfast than a full service hotel. It is an intimate atmosphere where you will get to know the other guests.
Overall I can highly recommend the Hosteria Rumicha. If you want to have the benefit of guides and pre-arranged transportation without having to participate in a large tour group this is the perfect option.
