Hotel Golden Inca

Recent guest reviews

This was a very nice small hotel. We came in after a long trip and were delighted to see our room. I think that we must have been upgraded to the suite. The bed was very comfortable, clean and attractive. Everything was clean. Nice front desk help and information. A good breakfast with eggs cooked to order. It is a little far away from the center but it is walking distance. We had a back room. It was quiet. A nice place to return to after visiting the central historic district or other sights in the Cusco area. I would definitely be happy to return to this hotel. Very good value for what we received.

We stayed at the Golden Inca for a total of 4 nights. It was clean, inexpensive, and breakfast was provided. They even made us sack breakfasts for the mornings we left early. It is about a 15 minute walk to the square; however, 5 of us crammed into a taxi for 5 Soles (total) for our trip back. No frills, but met our needs for the little time we spent at the hotel. The staff was very accommodating.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Golden Inca. We liked the location and the staff was fabulous. They did forget to send a taxi to pick us up at the airport which was disappointing but the taxi services from the hotel were exceptional. At night the streets were quiet, but occasionally noises within the hotel would echo. We took an over night trip to Machu Pichu and were very happy that we could store our large luggage at the hotel and that they would arrange transit for us to the train station and back. The rooms were large and lovely.

I used this hotel as a stop-over on the way to Machu Pichu. It felt like a hostel as opposed to a hotel. The rooms were reasonably priced, basic with a bed and extra blankets for Cusco's cold evenings and a simple breakfast. The concierge- the only staff member to speak English- was extremely helpful and knowledgable. The hotel is a 5sole taxi to the centre and 15 mins to the airport. Hot water and coca leaves in the lobby at all times to help with the altitude. Mini market a door away. Basic but functional.

They were very accommodating. We came to hike the Inca trail. They held our luggage, and it was waiting in our new room when we returned. The made ice for me to nurse my sore knee after the trek. Rooms were clean, wifi was available, breakfasts were great.

On the last part of our journey in Peru we were exhausted, and in pain from all the hiking. We decided to spend a little more than normal and just relax at the hotel for the following day and a half. We were very happy with the concierge like service at check in, the room and bathroom were nice and spacious, included towels, soaps, cable, wifi (though weak), and had the best free breakfast that I have ever had at any hotel (apart from all inclusives of course). The breakfast featured: cereal, fruits, breads, juices, deli, cheese, pancakes and you could even order omelettes at no extra charge! I do believe as well it is not too far of a walk from the central as well however we did not do it, as we had previously seen the city and just needed down time. Also the services of laundry, transportation, etc through the hotel have a high markup and it is easier and much cheaper to take your clothes to a laundry mat outside just a block or two away and also just hail your own cab outside, but know ahead of time what is a fare tarif. ***As a side note on the location: we grabbed a cab in the downtown and he had never heard of the place, I had even done my due diligence and had the address which didn't help either. So be prepared and have maps/GPS or whatever necessary to arrive. Also it will help in addition to the address to tell the driver that it's beside the "fabrica de cerveza"***

My partner and I planned to stay at Hotel Golden Inca for 2 nights. We were immediately blown away at how nice our room was for the price: we had a kitchenette/living room area along with a very nice bathroom and bedroom with a king size bed. After an accident on the second day of our stay, I ended up having to extend our stay for another week. Nelly, Marleleyne, and Manuel were all exceptionally kind and accommodating the entire time. I have nothing but praise and thanks for them and the Hotel Golden Inca.

The staff was wonderful, very helpful! The hotel was very clean and safe. Within walking distance to the square. Great breakfast spread and plenty of coca tea. They stored out luggage for us when we went on tours.

Lovey small hotel with everything you need. Coco tea on arrival/24 hours reception/wifi/hot showers/breakfast. Rooms are warm heaters work really well. You can leave your luggage for free if you go on a trek and come back. I loved this cozy hotel, definitely stay again!

Enjoyed my stay here-booked through Great english spoken by reception, water cooler and hot water for tea 24/7. Very clean and comfortable with a basic but tasty breakfast- chef cooked to order from a small menu which was great. Reception stored our luggage for a few days while we did the inca trail. Very fair price for the level of comfort here. I would recommend!
