The hotel is located right in the Plaza de Armas and is therefore very central, this does of course mean you are exposed to the noises of city life. We booked a suite which has a small balcony overlooking the Plaza, a big sitting area and a big bathroom. The room has traditional furniture and wooden floors and was very...

This Hostal is a small hotel on a main square of Cusco so I expected it to be noisy but it was not. It looks little bit shabby especially bathrooms but it was perfectly fitted our travel plans. And it was clean with free WIFI, free water bottles included and no disruptions in hot water and electricity. Very attentive stuff....

There were many pluses to this choice for our family of 7. The location is perfect, it has charm, a pleasant staff, one of our better breakfasts and is very clean. The bedrooms we had were small but fine for a night. In no way can it be considered a hostel but rather a small, middle range hotel. Would we...

The hotel was nice in every sense though being in the middle of the historical plaza meant some interesting noisy incidents. The hot water could be patchy, the wifi was terrible in our room though I will say the staff were very friendly and helped us no end. One thing to note, tour pick ups were not possible from hotel...

The location is excellent and the staff are always friendly; however… Planned to leave early in the morning, we planned the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu. An electricity outage occurred a night before, apparently all downtown was affected, it caused lack of water in the rooms; The next morning the staff informed us that they had power plant and that it...

This Hotel has two things going for it.. the location and the friendly staff and that is where it ends! Lack of reliable hot water and electricity left us eating breakfast by candle light and having cold showers. It was impossible to see around our room either as they are have virtually no natural light coming in, very tiny window....

We had a great experience with El Virrey. My husband coordinated with Zoila prior to our trip and reserved the king bed room overlooking the Plaza De Armas. The view was fantastic - we had the same exact balcony and view as all of the restaurants that line the square! Several evenings, we bought sandwiches from local restaurants and sat...

This hotel was right on the Plaza de Armas, so is VERY convenient to all activities on and around the square. It is a hostel, so don't expect all of the amenities you might find in a hotel. Hairdryer? Get it from the front desk. Need to store your suitcases for a few days while trekking? No problem! Store them...

We stayed here the first day we arrived to Cuzco and I was very pleased with the service as my flight arrive early (5am) and they let me in although check in is at 10am. Since they had no rooms available at that time I set in the lobby and they gave me mate de coca and a blanket as...

El Virrey is located in the best place of Cusco. It is a simple hostal, with clean rooms and a very friendly staff. They are very flexible and cooperative, allowing you to leave your luggage there while you travel somewhere else (in my case, Machu Picchu).
