    Wow! Talk about going above and beyond. My luggage was delayed at my departure point by 2 days, and the concierge staff was determined to find it. Lino and Roger spent countless hours on the phone with LAN airlines, speaking to multiple people, filling out forms, all in an effort to ensure i receive it before my 7-day trek to Machu Picchu. When they got word that the luggage had arrived at the airport, Lino went to the airport and waited until the last flight to retrieve it. Unfortunately, the luggage did not arrive, but he spoke to a number of airport employees, ensuring that it will be on the first flight from Lima the next day. The following morning, Lino went to the airport at 530am to get my suitcase and delivered it to me just in time for my trek. Their help in handling all the luggage hassles was invaluable and it gave me a chance to enjoy the city. In addition to the best concierges i've ever encountered, the hotel grounds are beautiful, very clean and comfortable. The hotel is also centrally-located to the city center. Cannot go wrong with Palacio Del Inca!

    Best Hotel in Cusco

    This was a wonderful hotel and a great value. I was looking for a hotel that was not part of a U.S. chain that has authentic Peruvian ambiance. This was it. The room was very large. The staff were well trained and the restaurant served great food. The only hiccup we encountered was that upon arrival, the front desk clerk told us that breakfast was not included because I had made the reservation online. This was quickly and satisfactorily resolved by the manager because I had brought a hard copy of my reservation that indicated breakfast was included in the price. Breakfast was delicious.

    Beautiful Cusco hotel a few blocks from the main plaza

    My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel in January 2013, and we were incredibly please with the warmth and helpfulness of the staff. The hotel is beautiful, with an inner, cloistered courtyard, and we really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast (delicious and generous buffet with hot and cold food). The hotel is located about a 10 min walk from the main plaza in Cusco, which was very pleasant, although during the off-season in January (when there aren't throngs of people) I wouldn't have minded staying in one of the hotels right next to the plaza. My only quite major complaint is that the Libertador is in the process of becoming a Starwood hotel, which includes some renovations. We were told that we wouldn't be able to hear construction from our room, which was patently false. The construction started at 8am on the dot both mornings (Saturday and Sunday) and woke us up immediately. Many travelers may have no problem being up at that hour, and obviously the construction will end at some point, but after flying overnight the night before, we were hoping to being able to sleep in much longer. To their credit, the front desk staff did everything they could to help when they heard that we were woken up, but we were disappointed that the construction would start so early on a weekend.

    The location of the hotel is in the heart of the city near to the 12 angled stone Inca wall. Hotel staff speaks English and are helpful and nice. Room was very comfortable however a lot of construction taking place early in the mornings.

    Great hotel, highly recommend

    We were very pleased with our stay at the hotel during our time in Cusco. Firstly, the hotel is quite massive compared to some of the other hotels that I have seen around here. The lobby is beautiful and there are multiple seating areas and lounges throughout the hotel. The staff is very friendly and we got an awesome welcome where someone greeted us at the door, took our bags and led us to the couches. He brought out the paperwork for us to fill while also bringing some hot coco tea. The rooms are ver comfortable and has everything you will need (100 channels in the TV and better shower pressure than my shower back in the states.). We had breakfast included in our rate and it was the usual spread of fruits, yogurts, pastries, cereals, breads and meats. But perhaps, the best thing about the hotel is its location. Its literally across the street from Qoriconcha (one of the most popular tourist destinations) and a 7-10 minute walk from Plaza del armas. It was super convenient for us to get around the city by walking everywhere. One slight negative was that we didn't get the wifi signal in our room so had to come down to the lobby. But that could just have been because of our room location.

    Hotel Libertador is not a business hotel

    I was in Cusco on business and several people recommended the Hotel Libertador. This hotel is set up for tourists. Rooms are small with no table or desk. Several rooms are right above major intersections on the roads so the traffic noise went until midnight. Internet service was just in the lobby and barley worked. The description online was different on check in. There are better places in Cusco for the money.

    Looks good, smells bad

    Looked like a 5-star hotel, but the air quality really ruined my stay. Both of our rooms (we broke our stay for a 2-day trip to Machu Picchu) had not been aired. The first (on the colonial side) smelled a little musty, and we had to air it out ourselves. Overnight, I also developed breathing problems because the air in the room was so dry. The second (a newer suite) had not been aired either and smelled truly atrocious. It may be the cleaning detergent the hotel uses.

    perfect fusion of tradition and comfort

    Excellent combination of a historical building (patio!) with modern comfort. Perfect service, great breakfast buffet, maté de coca available 24/24. Ideally located close to main sights. Complimentary spa after a long day sightseeing.
