“Great budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

For the price of this hotel, it is really very good accommodation. It is situated on a hill overlloking the whole city so has great views and is only a 5-10 minute walk to the main square. It is a new hotel so decorated very modern and clean and everything is new. Our room was spacious and had nice views (we were on the top floor). The breakfast was nice but could have been more plentiful - it was scrambled eggs, toast, cereal but you could only choose one thing to have - not a variety so it was a little on the small side. The staff were friendly and helpful and set on making sure you have a lovely stay. We asked for wake up calls and extra pillows for the bed and nothing was too much trouble. The only downsides to the hotel were the noise and the fact it was quite cold. We visited in February during Peru's rainy season and as Cusco is so high up above sea level it's natually cold anyway but when we were there it was very cold and wet and the room had no source of heating nand thin wondows. We had thick blankets on the bed but when we got out of bed in the morning or to pop the loo of a night it was very cold and we were shivering! A small heater in the room or a radiator would have made a big difference. Also the noise - because it rained the two days we spent there, and because we were on the top floor and the tin roof was above us, the rain made a loud pattering noise on the roof - but this wasn't enough to keep us awake and really can't be helped as we did actually request a high room.

Overall I would say that this hotel is really good value for money as it was so cheap so is a really good option for people on a budget.

We spent several nights here while exploring the nearby Inca sites and a day trip to Machu Picchu. The owners are very helpful and speak English well. The view from the attic room - which is where the breakfast is served - is fantastic.

This is a great place to stay during a visit to Cusco. It is about a 10 minute walk from the center (stairs), but you can also take a cab down for as little as 3 nuevo soles; the views a definitely worth 3 soles. Also, the rooms are spacious and have a nice warm feeling to them. The breakfast is good and the only minus I can mention is the fact that the beds are on the hard side. Most importantly, however, is that the staff is really nice and accommodating. They put in the extra effort that takes this place from a very good option to a great option, especially when comparing their prices to that of other similarly rated hotels in Cusco.

TIP 1: A cab ride from the airport to Mirador de Santa Ana (or the other way around) can cost as little as 10 Soles if you negotiate.

Tip 2: Mirador de Santa Ana can arrange for a day-tour to Machu Picchu. They are CHEAPER than the tour operators you will find online or in the center, it is definitely worth asking them about it. If you have an ISIC-card, they can give you the extra discount (they can buy discount entrance tickets to Machu Picchu in advance. The government sells these discount tickets only in Cusco, not online)

We spent several nights here during our 3 week trip to peru this December. We had a room on the 5th (top) floor for first few nights, and then returned and had a room on the 4th floor. The rooms on the upper floors have the most amazing views of Cusco. I was very ill when we arrived in Cusco, and it was a beautiful place to be stuck in the room for 2 days! At least I could see the entire city from my bed. The owner, Maete (not sure if I spelled that correctly) spoke good English and was very accommodating. We helped us find a doctor to take me to on Christmas day, as well as ordered several meals delivered to the hotel for us as I was not well enough to venture out. She and her family, who help out in running the hotel, seemed genuinely concerned about my well-being. I had her mom telling me in Spanish to keep my head covered and warm while I was sick, and the father showing me Chinese medicine pressure points to relieve headache. They were all so pleasant and caring! I felt very safe and comfortable there because of Maeta, her familiy, and staff. Breakfast satisfying and was served every morning in the breakfast room with magnificent views of the city, and consisted of tea, coffee, toast and jam, with either fresh fruit, pancakes, or various forms of eggs. There was constant access to teas including mate de coca in the lobby. The location was good, although not in the very center of the city. It is definitely walkable to the center provided you are not sick and are not suffering from altitude sickness. Otherwise, it was a 5-6 Sole cab ride to/from the Plaza de Armas, which was affordable. It is downhill on the way to the city and uphill on the way back...maybe a 15 min walk at the most, unless you are moving extremely slowly due to the altitude. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and felt we were staying at the perfect place. It was so nice to return after seeing Macchu Picchu and the Sacred Valley and fully enjoy El Mirador de Santa Ana and Cusco while completely healthy!

Room Tip: 5th floor rooms have the best panoramic views or the city.

Mirador de Santa Ana is a good place to stay although not what it promises to be on their website. What you get is a pretty, well-kept small hotel in a central, but quiet area of Cusco. We paid 45 US$ for a double room, which was ok sized and clean, with a small, but clean shower. At some point the hot water didn’t work but staff were very eager to help and offered a different room to have a shower. The main Recepcionista speaks English very well and is very helpful with bookings, print outs etc. However, trying a bit too hard to sell us tours that she would probably get commission on.

Breakfast is toast with butter and marmalade, coffee with milk, tea, eggs or muesli. It is served in an attic room with amazing views over Cusco. Definitely recommendable but a bit pricey for what you get.

We stayed for 4 nights, which was split as we did the 4 day inka trek. While away they held our bags which was awesome. Even after the trek when we were meant to check out, my wife felt unwell. They gave us another room until 2pm so she could rest a little. They did not even ask for more money like others would. This was the cream on the cake for us.
The view from breakfast was amazing and what you ate as well.

I would definately recommend staying here.
