Hotel Arqueologo Exclusive Selection

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Really nice hotel located 5 min walking from Plaza de Armas. We loved our stay there, we tried 2 different types of rooms and both were really pleasant. Still, what we preferred was the bar, really cosy and was the perfect place to relax after a day of trekking, cocktails were really good. Overall, we recommend this hotel, restaurant is good too and staff really professional and attentive to their clients' need. Next time we visit Cusco, we surely won't hesitate to come back here!

We arrived inCusco very early in the morning after traveling all night from Kansas City, MO. Hotel Arqueologo found us a room for our family of four to shower and sleep even though check in wasn't until 1:00 pm. When we were ready to explore the city, the person at the front desk was able to provide maps and walking times. We ate dinner I the hotel restaurant and it was our best of the trip. The rooms were very nice and clean. The entire hotel had a great Spanish Colonial feel. Three days later when we left on our home of the Inca Trail, the hotel p voided a safe place for us to leave our unnecessary belongings. When we returned from our trek 4 days later we were again greeted with open arms. While on the trail, others in our group told only horror stories of their rooms. I'm not sure if we will ever return to Cusco, but if we do, Hotel Arqueologo will be our home away from home. Very affordable and very nice.

We were welcomed by the staff with tea and could check in before 3 pm. The atmosphere of the courtyard is pleasant and restaurant adjacent is superb. One disadvantage: all lights on or off, bed light could not work separately

This lovely hotel is situated within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas and Saqsaywaman. The bar and outside seating area are pleasant and there are also handy facilities available such as coca tea (good for altitude adjustment) and filtered water. The staff members are extremely helpful and were always willing to offer their knowledge and suggestions. They couldn't do enough for us. I will definitely stay here again if come back.

We took a family trip through Peru and Bolivia and this hotel was by far our favorite, across the board. Quirky cool rooms. A very nice restaurant and bar and top notch service. We can't recommend these guys enough!

Nice place with a local feel, and friendly staff who will try to make you feel at home, a good breakfast, clean and cozy rooms, a good bar with comfortable sofas, at a good location some 5 minutes walking from the main square.

The beds are comfortable and the staff was friendly in general. The breakfast was ok, but the staff there was a bit confused. We stayed in two different rooms. In one of them, we could hear everything from the other rooms and the bathroom door wouldn't close. But the WORST OF ALL was when we were leaving. We asked two cab drivers on the street how much it would cost to take us to the airport from our hotel. They said 10 soles. When we got to the hotel, we asked them to book us a taxi for the next morning. The taxi driver picked us up and when he was leaving us, he said it would coast 30 soles. When we asked why he said that was the price the hotel told him to charge us for! We called the hotel and the guy at the front desk said that the taxi driver was mistaken and that we could pay 15, but the driver swore that 30 was the price the front desk guy said earlier - and we totally believe him because we saw him asking when picking us up.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Arqueologo! Louis behind the reception desk was a great help to us! The restaurant was lovely and pisco sours at the bar a must try! The location is ideal close to the plaza and some great restaurants.

It was an excellent hotel and I am significantly thankful about all the service provided during our stay! The personnel was very attentive to our experience in their hotel. The room were very clean and they were always on a very positive mood.

We loved our stay at the hotel, quaint and friendly. Do dine at the restaurant, the food is beautifully prepared and top notch. The owner, Joël, is French and brought back his grand-mother duck recipe, fabulous dish! The hotel is just 5mn walk from Plaza de Armas but located in a quiet and lovely area.
