3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I can't even begin to say enough about this hotel. It's quaint, welcoming and laid back atmosphere set the best beginning for our trip to Machu Picchu. The warm, welcoming staff was oh-so pleasant and always had a smile. They catered to our every ask and worked so hard to ensure we were happy. Upon our return from Machu Picchu (the next evening) we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the restaurant (please see my additional review and pictures of this amazing place). We were so happy to have such a relaxing, intimate place to unwind as the bar area served as our family's evening gathering place for the remainder of the evenings while in Cusco. Rooms were fantastic. Rustic Peruvian style paired with an extremely clean bathroom and plenty of warm blankets, even though it was unseasonably cold, we were perfectly comfortable without needing to turn the furnace on. Loved, loved, loved this hotel, it's staff and location. We WILL be back :-)

The room was really really cute slept well the skylight really made it. The restaurant oh my God the food melts in your mouth is just too good had no trouble with hot water just had to wait a while for it to get hot on the upper floors that's normal early in morning. The staff was there for us anything we needed they helped us find.

We stayed for 2 night with my father and it was great. Room as large, clean, comfy bed, warm, and an excellent shower, lovely and hot. The breakfast was good, with juice, coffee, teas, cereals, bread, fruit breads, fruit, waffles, eggs how you like them. breakfast does close at 9.30 which I think is a bit early considering people often fly in late. This should be changed to at least 10. The bar is really nice with an open fire, what a treat, there is a free welcome drink which is nice. The only thing I would comment on is the free airport shuttle we got with didn't turn up, and when we got here we got told it was just a taxi at your expense.

We arrived quite late after our Salkantay Trek. Reception staff helpful at all times. We had a lovely room for three on two floors. Very nice with all amenities. Good wifi. Nicely located. Cosy bar. Good Pisco sours. Breakfast good although restaurant closed so can't comment. Very pretty. Would recommend.

We had the most fantastic stay in beautiful Cusco. The hotel is perfect! Great location, we had a lovely spacious room, lovely clean and modern bathrooms, great breakfast. The staff were amazing from the moment we arrived for check in. I got very bad altitude sickness the night of our arrival and the staff were fantastic - they provided medication, an endless supply of coca tea and even oxygen. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and the staff in the restaurant equally as fantastic! We really had a fabulous stay, in spite of the altitude sickness:)

The hotel was really nice and had the extra perk of fresh filtered safe water for guests to fill camelbacks and bottles. The only down side was that they turned off the hot water at 11p and didn't turn it on until 5 am which made our 3:30 am showers very cold prior to departure. Otherwise, the attached bar and restaurant were amazing as well. Would definitely stay here again. Great location too.

This hotel was like a cozy bed and breakfast. The service was good. Sometimes the staff was difficult to find even though they are supposed to be 24 hours. The staff is also much more confident in Spanish than English, but it is possible to communicate. We were visiting on a Sunday and did not have the opportunity to experience the bar and restaurant. The location is great--right down the street from the main square.

A great charm: a traditional building restored with great taste. It is very well located, five minutes walk from the main square. Nicely set room. Fully flushing toilet (not always the case in Peru for toilet paper). Good shower though the hot water could be challenging. Very good buffet breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff although their English can be lacking. A highly recommended hotel.

Hotel Arqueologo could not have been more charming and comfortable. I stayed in two different rooms, with a trek in between, and liked both. A lovely remodeled colonial mansion with two interior courtyards willed with flowers, the hotel is an oasis of quiet and peace. The rooms are each individual, some with balconies and two stories, with the original parquet floors and wood beams. The bathrooms have been recently redone, with tile and glass showers. The beds and linens are comfy. The bar is warm and appealing, with a fireplace. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast room is light-fillled with interesting views--and it is open 6-9.30. And while Peru hotels are often cheap, this hotel offers a lot for only $88/night in 2017. I am astonished that this hotel doesn't get all fives. I can't imagine what more anyone would want. I would never stay anyplace else in Cusco. Helpful hint: walk uphill from the hotel for eight or so blocks and you end up at an entrance to Sacsayhuaman. No need to take a taxi.

The hotel is beautiful--every room is well appointed, comfortable, and relaxing. The lobby is a great place to hang out; the food in the restaurant was some of the best I had during my trip, breakfast is lovely, and the bar serves a lot of deliciousness. The staff is top-notch, and customer service is clearly a priority. They will help plan excursions, and did an absolutely fantastic job. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stays. We've been there twice, and I can't wait to be there again.
