“If only they told the truth!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This place could be a lot better if it wasn't for the manager who was on duty when we stayed. The accomadation is fine, rooms incl. tv, towels etc... and are clean. Our problem was when we asked if they do laundry, the porter said no but the manager said yes. We explained we had to have it back by 9am the following morning and were told it would definetly be back by 6pm that day. It wasn't, in fact it didn't turn up till 10.30 the next morning and was still wet despite the managers repeated insistence it was ready, at one point he even tried to blame us. If this incident had been handled better I'd give this place a better review, there are sooo many places to stay in Nazca it amazes me that in this day with online reviews that business' don't see the need for even basic customer service.

Kunan Wasi was recommended as a great hotel run by a former Los Angeleno. Just a block from the main plaza in Nasca and convenient to the various long-distance bus stations, the rooms were good and had large balconies; the wi-fi was weak but I never found great wi-fi anywhere in Peru. The hotel went the extra mile to hook me up with a reliable local tour service, who booked me a flight over the Nasca lines and a vehicle trip to the nearby pyramids at Cahuachi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, unless you are sensitive to street noise.

Hotel Kunan Wasi is in a convenient location in Nazca. The manager speaks English and is extremely helpful regarding what to visit, how to make best use of your time and safety around the town. He even pulled some strings so that we were able to get a flight over the Nazca Lines before leaving on an afternoon bus!

This hotel is over priced for both Nazcar and Peru. The owner seems to spend more time telling you how good his hotel is than running a good hotel. Breakfast is pretty poor even by South America's two pieces of bread and jam standards, especially for the price.

It seems that a positive review in the Lonely Planet has turned the owners approach from good service to making money!

Yes, it's clean and has hot water but that's about it. The owner didn't make me feel welcome but was more busy showing her friend songs on YouTube. There was no pillow in my room and I had to ask twice before I got one. Then I was kindly asked to stay out from 4 to 6 as owner had a course. When I returned at 6 I had to wait 20 minutes until sb. opened because she was still gone. And all that in a 3 star hotel which is much more expensive than written in the Lonely Planet. No, thanks!

We enjoyed 3 nights at this hotel. It was good deal, but the friendly helpful service was definitely the highlight. They had good restaurant recommendations, and even insisted on hailing a taxi for us once to make sure we got to the right place. Also, we wanted to see the Cahuachi ruins, and they arranged a tour with someone they knew who did an awesome job, giving us a far better experience than the other tourists we saw at the same location. And they arranged for laundry service for us too. We were very impressed. The location was nice too, just a block off the main square. We ended up staying in a room towards the back. It seemed as though they were doing some remodeling and they wanted to move us to another room after our first night, but we didn't care about the old decor (though it did need changing!) so just stayed. Plus it was nice staying in back without having to risk potential traffic noise on the street at night. I don't know if that would be an issue, but since we were happy we decided not to change. Anyway, the hotel was clean, comfortable and nice, and with a decent location. And it was a good deal. But the service was what definitely stood out more than anything.

Room was so hot it was unbearable! No windows that opened, only sliding glass door to shared balcony. Hot water was turned off. Owner said it was because it was hot outside. There are many other places to stay nearby that are comfortable and cool for a third of the price. Breakfast was only 2 pieces of toast and choice of beverage. Near the central park and restaurants.
