“An unforgetable stay - A perfect place to get to know the Inca history & culture”
Reviewed 13 July 2010

We have been to lovely hotels in many countries but this place is unlike any other. I rarely write a review but this one is a must. The hosts: Antonio treats you like his guests. We tried to be trapped in the overly crowded touristic spots as little as possible. The stay here couldn't have been better. Antonio drove us in his car to the little town nearby, to a very large Inca site where there was no one in sight. We even stopped by a village festival when we drove past it in the middle of nowhere. Such a lovely family and such a lovely place. Food: The food was top notch. Fusion cuisine done right. Hotel: Clean and tastefully decorated. The outside patio where we lunched everyday had a clear gorgeous view of the Andes. Overall, if you're thinking about getting to know the Inca history and culture, go here for a very pleasant and totally unique experience. We wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

Driving the main road through Chinchero, which was under construction, I had low expectations. But when we arrived at La Casa De Barro, with their beautiful yard, comfortable and cheerful rooms and gracious host and hostess I knew we would have a pleasant stay. They were very accommodating for children and had books, games, toys, bikes, gathering places and three dogs that captured the affection of our kids. The onsite restaurant served generous portions of food.
We had laundry done while we stayed there but forgot to take into account drying time (on a rainy day) as they don't have a heated tumble dryer, so think twice before doing laundry if you are leaving for a trek. The hot water also needs to be turned on before you shower so make sure to double check that before you want to bathe.
Our host, Antonio, took us on a walking tour of the weaving center and the historic ruins and shared funny and fascinating stories of the Inca history. I especially enjoyed the beautiful mountains, valley and waterfall. I'd love to hike that portion of the Inca trail sometime. Overall, I loved staying at this hotel and will stay there again when I return.

For those who think Chinchero is not worth a stop, think again! We were so pleasantly surprised to find this quaint little hotel in the charming town of Chinchero. Chinchero itself is highly underrated and really worth a visit. The hotel has only been open 7 months and the owners are delightful. The rooms are clean, quaint and the bathrooms spotless. The restaurant boasts a delightful menu with huge portions and the prices are not to be believed. The setting cannot be matched with snow-covered peaks visable from the balcony and a beautiful terrace and garden from which to view them. The family's friendly dogs, Estrella (star) and Luna (moon) are the welcoming committee for the hotel. It was such a lovely visit and we cannot wait to return!
