Besides being so comfortable at Ruinas Hotel, the localization is fantastic, it is in the Historic Center, that means, you are in the perimeter of downtown Cuzco and just walk the Four Suyos and you are there!... and call Esther for the tours around the main Ruins...we loved what we experienced.

Cannot fault this hotel, clean, comfortable and the staff were so helpful in every aspect. We left our excess luggage here when we did the Inca trail and when we returned late at night our room and left baggage were all ready for us, great service.

We stayed here as part of our tour in July 2016. The weather was perfect comparable to spring in Florida. My husband had an issue with the altitude while i was fine, but climbing up and down 3 flight of stairs with a 10 lb bag of laundry was not fun. 1 thing to note though is that 1 night...

We stayed here twice on our trip. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. Bathrooms are well equipped. Many rooms are lit by internal light wells, rather than outside windows, as we have experienced elsewhere in Peru. This has an advantage of keeping the room quiet and cool, but means there is no view. We...

Nice, clean, modern rooms, good but simple breakfast. Rooms are all up stairs and no elevator--at all! Some rooms open to the main lobby, others chattering and visiting late. Other rooms quite close window to window on third floor, you can look into other rooms! No dark curtains to block light at night .... Bring your eye covers for extra...

Lovely staff, charming lobby, great location close to the main old town, with comfortable rooms with very nice bathrooms. Checkout is ostensibly 9:00 a.m.-- too early-- and our tired family group (in two rooms) wasn't to leave for the airport until 5:00 p.m. The front desk said that all the rooms were booked for that evening, but I was able...

So we did a little research and ended up booking for Hotel Ruinas, The location was excellent, very centric and convenient (you can literally walk to most places), The hotel itself was very very nice, super cozy and historic at the same time. The front desk lady was super helpful, as well as the youngster who helped us with the...

Well relatively peaceful, as Cusco is a lively city! Stayed 3 times over a 3 week cycling / trekking holiday. First time just seemed like such a contrast and place of sanctuary that it was bound to get a great review. However on all 3 occasions it was the same, clean, great service, decent breakfast and lovely building. Not all...

This was the best decision we've made during our stay in Cusco. The location is great, the place is spotless and the personnel very friendly. The breakfast was also a very pleasant surprise we didn't expect it'll be so good. I would not hesitate recommending it to anyone.

This was a wonderful hotel to stay at. It is well located near the Plaza de Arms and in easy walking distance to most major attractions in Cusco. The room was clean and comfortable. The service was top notch. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.On the day of our leaving Peru, we needed extra time to re-arrange our luggage...
