We stayed here before and after hiking the Inca Trail. When we arrived at the Cusco airport at 6am, a taxi was waiting to take us to the hotel. When we arrived, the staff provided us a map of the city, offered us cocoa tea, and provided us information about the hotel. Most importantly, they allowed us to check-in at...

We stayed two nights after our trip to Machu Picchu. It's a small hotel that feels cozy and friendly. The staff are helpful. When we arrived it was pouring rain and THREE staff members brought umbrellas out to our taxi and kept us and our luggage dry. The room was cheerful and well decorated and super clean. Breakfast was quite...

I adored this hotel. I missed it so much when I moved on to Puno. The building is amazing, it is close to Plaza das Armas and it has two small court yards. It reminded me of a typical Spanish house. The staff are well mannered, friendly and extremely helpful. When you need something, it is done immediately. The rooms...

Loved this hotel - clean, quiet, huge bed, lovely bathrooms and yummy breakfast. Warning - I put in a bag of laundry and a few bits went missing despite being very expensive (and I still had to pay as it was my word against theirs). Also beware large water bottles near the breakfast buffet-my friend filled up my water bottle...

We spent three nights here before our trek to Macchu Picchu. After a long day of traveling, we were greeted by hot coca tea. The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is located in a perfect place- close enough to allow you to walk to city center, far enough away that city noise did not keep us up at...

For the unprepared, the tourism industry im cusco can feel like a massive shakedown for every Nuevo Sol you have (of course! It's a tourism city after all and let's not mention the shameful 400$ gringo-pricing on flights for the hour hop from Lima). It an be quite challenging to find good value for money (and assuming you want something...

We stayed at villa Saphi before and after our inca trail tour in October. This hotel is perfect for a luxury stay in Cusco. It is located about 5min walk from the main square. The service is of a very high standard and all amenities are well thought out. Breakfast buffet was excellent-variety of fruit, juices, scrambled eggs, fresh bread...

I stayed at the Tierra Viva Saphi in Peru on two occasions. The first time around they gave us a room that was so small, that after we opened our suitcases, there was no place to step on the floor. The staff, however, were very nice. So on our return trip from Macchi Picchu, they have us a big room....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel in Cusco is located in what used to be an elegant colonial residence. Throughout the hotel you’ll find a charming contrast between this imperial city’s rich history and modern convenience and comfort. Our spacious rooms are an invitation to rest, offering the ideal place to refuel and start a new day of exploration and discovery. As was characteristic in large colonial residences, our hotel has two interior patios where our guests can relax during a sunny afternoon or enjoy a soft breeze at the end of the day. ... more   less
