    Magical stay

    My favorite hotel experience of our entire Peru trip. I highly recommend Melissa Wasi! The locale was amazing. The view of the mountains, the flowers around the hotel, the friendly dogs on premises, everything was magical. I did not want to leave! It was a chilly night when we were there, but firewood was right outside our door and the fire kept us warm and cozy. The owners were amazing people and helped us in any way we asked. We were there the night that Peru played Brazil in the final match of the Copa America, which was a very big deal for the Peruvians. The owners invited us to watch the game with their family and neighbors!! I would highly recommend Melissa Wasi!

    Shabby accommodations at luxury pricing

    I was baffled when I looked at Melissa Wasi's ratings and customer reviews after our stay as they seemed to describe a very different place than we experienced. Our room was shabby (or in PR speak "rustic"), seemingly furnished from thrift shops, lighting was too dim for reading, the only heat was a wood stove (so the room was cold) and the king bed we thought we were getting was a kind of full size saggy stale futon. There was an utter lack of attention by management to even the simplest details or quality control. (And you can't blame an overworked staff as there were only a few guests.) For example, we learned that the lack of hot water in the shower was the result of staff not turning on the water heater. We had to ask that someone supply matches and wood for the stove. The owner mentioned a heater but never supplied one. The owner was a nice enough chap who mouthed the words "mi casa es su casa" but he seemed to put his interests ahead of ours (examples upon request.) At the slightest pushback he was never apologetic, always defensive. This wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that our room was 95USD per night, outrageous considering we're well travelled and have stayed in much nicer places for less. I would not recommend Melissa Wasi until the owner has learned to become a proper hotelier, pricing reflects the youth hostel-like quality, and someone has edited the online description so that it properly reflects reality.

    I love this place! A little bit of paradise.

    Melissa Wasi was like a little slice of paradise. The couple who created it live in a house surrounded by numerous cottages, all in a Eucalyptus grove within walking distance of downtown Pisac. The owners are very friendly, hospitable, and interesting and the invited me (and any other guests who care to) to join them in their living room in the evening. It was the best place I stayed on my 6 days from Cusco, through the Sacred Valley, to Machu Picchu and back to Cusco. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of staying anywhere in the area around Pisac. My only regrets were that I couldn't stay there longer (just a short trip) and that it's so far from the U.S. where I live.
