Casa San Blas Boutique Hotel

Recent guest reviews

Casa San Blas is one of the nicest places to stay in Cusco. It is close to great restaurants and to all the nightlife Cusco offers. I highly recommend staying here.

Lovely Boutique Hotel on a charming street in Cusco, just 3 blocks off the main square. We arrived from Cusco in the early AM and were pleasantly surprised that we could get into our room. It was really nice since we flew in from Mexico City on an overnight flight. Our room was perfect and they even held our bags over for a few days while we hiked the Inca Trail. A breakfast buffet was included and offered a wide variety of items as well as cooked to order egg dishes. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. FABULOUS!

i will for sure come back to this place, it was very clean, people friendly, breakfast very nice, cable very good, internet as well, location close to everything in the city.....i can't say no bad thing everything and everybody was nice

Tucked away on a side street, but within easy walking distance to everything, this was a great find. The staff could not have been more helpful. Could have easily spent another week in this wonderful little city.

Had booked and prepaid for a double room in July for Casa San Blas for myself and my son. Airport pick up had some problems with delay but we got to the property and were told at the front desk that we were being housed around the corner through the passageway and into a brand-new set of rooms with a different name. The room wasn't quite finished yet, was extremely cold though large and nicely appointed. Wi-Fi was a problem there and they corrected it with the placement of a router right in our window. We still felt we were in a completely separate abd desserted establishment all by ourselves and asked to be put in the hotel where we had booked and paid. We were told that it wasn't possible as there was no space in Casa San Blas. We were not happy. It's a pity because the new place will probably be lovely someday but it didn't work for us. I can't recommend Casa San Blas as although I booked and paid for it, I never stayed there. Great disappointment. Reception was pleasant enough.

On our first day, when we were adjusting to the altitude, I thought we were going to regret choosing a hotel located in the hilly San Blas neighborhood. Walking up the steep streets was a real workout, and balancing on the narrow elevated sidewalks was quite daunting! Once we adjusted to the altitude, we learned to appreciate the charm of this beautiful section of Cusco, a quick 5 minute walk to Plaza De Armas, yet just far enough from the crowds of the bustling city center. At the front desk, Russell was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. He arranged a wonderful and cost-efficient one-day Sacred Valley tour for us within just a day's notice. A hot breakfast is included in the stay. The fresh, local fruits were an adventure to try! The hotel shuttle to and from the airport was very convenient. Actually the shuttle back to the airport was a taxi which the hotel gave us cash to pay for, which was fine. The porters are all very friendly and attentive. Cusco in June was quite chilly at night. Hot water bottles were placed in our beds every night, and a heater helped warm the room. The room we stayed in wasn't quite as soundproof as I would have liked, however, earplugs did the trick. One suggestion would be for the hotel to provide bottled water for guests since it is not advisable to drink or brush your teeth with the local tap water. However, many stores around the hotel sell bottled water, and we found one small grocery store around the corner that sold a large (about 2 Liters) bottle for 2 soles. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. Thank you, Casa San Blas, for a wonderful experience!

I stayed here two nights before I went on the Inca Trail and it was a great location to my tour operator and to get around town. The staff was very friendly and made sure I had everything I needed to be comfortable. The food was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a nice hotel with character and charm and a very attentive staff.

We were looking for a place to stay for one night in Cusco before setting of on the Inca Trail. Great staff, perfect location.

The location is perfect, the staff is friendly and efficient. breakfat is good. Very satisfied!

Our three day stay at this hotel was the best in our Peru trip. The room was functional and clean. The staff was very helpful and the location is very close to the main tourist areas.

Perfect trip! They accomodated every request, small or unusual and I had some unusual requests, to my liking!

We have found the staff very friendly, and helpful. Taxi shuttle saves a lot of trouble and a few soles. English spoken and staff helpful to getting to places around town. Authentic friendly Peruvian hospitality. Its not the Ritz, for the price, a very good value.

Average hotel, good location but room was dark and small.

This hotel was comfortable, very attractive and clean. The staff were very nice, accommodating and helpful. It was an excellent location and close to the main plaza. Our first room was beautiful and large. we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed again at this hotel a few days later, after going to Machu Picchu, and were a little disappointed that the second room, was smaller, less attractive, and there was a lot of noise outside the window because of a school nearby. So it just depended on the room you got. But all in all, it was a very attractive, safe, clean hotel with great staff and a very nice breakfast included.

Excellent atention, friendly atmosphere, good taste. Perfectly located. I would go back

Extremely helpful and pleasant staff. Perfect for a few days in Cusco. Attended to all one's needs and made excellent recommendations for restaurants. Would stay there again.

I had two taxi drivers and neither could find it. I refused to pay the second driver because he said he knew where it was. I stopped in the Cocoa Leaf |Museum and they walked with me to an internet cafe and we finally found it on line, but no telephone number listed. They walked with me to an alley and found it. Not a bad place at all, but very difficult to find.

The hotel is super clean, and the staff are really helpful, especially a girl named [...] - she is super professional, and gave us lots of info from taxi rates to the best money exchange location, and she arranged a great day trip for us to see Sacred Valley. We are happy that we met her; she is usually in morning shift.

The hotel was very clean and had a good shower. The only problem was that there was no heat even in the winter. On the other hand, it never got really cold. The staff was fantastic in taking care of all needs, arranging transportation (including one free trip from/to airport). Cusco is above 10,000 feet and many visitors have a problem with altitude. The hotel provides coca tea, oxygen, and even a pill when needed. Transportation arrangements at any time of day or night were most helpful, as well as the friendly advice given by the staff. The taxi drivers they arranged were also most cordial and helpful, even to the point of lending a few solis when we were short. Cusco was a friendly place and no one tried to take advantage of us in any context. We should have prepared for a longer stay. This was one of the most interesting and challenging trips we have taken anywhere.
