We spent 3 nights here in all. It is a very quaint hotel ideally situated about 5 minutes from the main plaza. The room was comfy. Breakfast was served in a kitchenette area. It was continental style with some lovely jam. The hotel stored our cases while we went to Macchu Picchu. They also arranged some laundry. I would definitely...

Near town center and many of the activities you will want to participate in. Like most hotels in this price range in Peru, no air conditioning and no elevator. Staff was incredible. We complained about a smell in the room and about noise. When we returned to our room it had been cleaned, we had a personal note and ear...

Really good location 2 blocks the the plaza, on the desirable San Blas side of town. The staff were super friendly (speak English) and set us up with a great tour operator who organized our trip to Machu Picchu, which was so well coordinated and effortless on our end. The rooms are quite nice and an outstanding value for the...

This is a boutique hotel with quirky rooms, all of them different. Nothing is too much trouble for the knowledgeable and helpful staff. It is an easy flat walk to the central square. Breakfast is good, and they even had a packed breakfast waiting for us when we departed at 5am to catch a plane.

Nice hotel with comfortable bed, hot water and satellite tv, something you value if you come back from an inka trail. The position is very good. To improve: breakfast is very simple and the service is absent (coffee was cold, food was finished and thete was no staff to add on for the other customers, no one to clean up...

Quaint rustic hotel. Bit dusty under the bed and bathroom shower door was broken so got repaired while we were there. Creaky varnished floorboards, very noisy with traffic outside all night long tooting. Tea making is in the kitchen, not the bedrooms. Laundry service overpriced. Unfortunately I got severe altitude sickness and coca leaf poisoning so was rushed off to...

Excellent staff who provided great service. Tip: the two loft rooms were very hot when we stayed (mid Nov) so make sure you ask for a fan. Very good location and close to many of the main attractions in Cusco

Located just two blocks from Cusco's main plaza and minutes to some of Cusco's best known bars and restaurants, lies the hideaway WakaPunku boutique hotel. Meaning "Door to the Sanctuary" in the native Quechua language, we have worked tirelessly to make the hotel warm and inviting to the weary traveller, and offer exceptional service to match the exceptional value for our hotel. Each room is unique; its layout provides an oasis of calm in Cusco. With abundant 24 hour hot water, comfortable beds and modern necessities such as an iPhone dock in every room, we hope you feel comfortable during your stay with us.
