This is an extremely classy hotel, centrally located with professional & friendly staff. Breakfast is diverse & tasty, it's only a 15 minute walk to the Main City Square and the rooms, while not particularly enormous, have a decor which just scream sophistication. Don't even think twice about staying anywhere else.

Stayed here for one night in route to Machu Picchu. Very comfortable place, friendly staff, excellent breakfast in the morning included. A bit of a walk to the main square (15 minutes or so) but plenty of taxis if desired.

The Sonesta Cusco is a truly superb hotel and an excellent value. The staff are universally warm and helpful, the WiFi works well, and the breakfast buffet (which starts at 0500) is truly excellent. We requested, and were given a high floor room (508) overlooking Avenida El Sol. The room was stylish, large, and very comfortable with complementary bottled water...

Nice hotel with great service. They were able to hold our luggage there while we left to hike the Inca Trail and everyone was always very helpful and friendly. They had an excellent breakfast that is open very early and is included with your stay. It is a few blocks from the main area, the Plaza de Armas, but we...

This hotel was nice but no air conditioning in the building. We stayed here for 4 days while we toured Cusco/Machu Picchu. When we got here, the room wasn't ready, but we were told that the room won't be ready until 1 hour... but if we pay $40 extra, we can have a room right away. We agreed to pay...

The hotel is perfectly located, walking distance to the main plaza and all attractions. If you plan to take an early train to Titicaca lake it is the best choice to stay. It takes 3 minutes walking, and the boy from the hotel helps to carry your suitcases to the station. Rooms are clean, breakfast very tasty, the staff friendly...

This hotel is in a convenient location in Cuzco. The service was exceptional. The restaurant had a good buffet breakfast with egg orders and a good menu for other meals. The rooms are very comfortable, but there is no air conditioning. We cooled down by opening the balcony door.

This is a great hotel in the Wanchaq district of Cusco, just 150 metres from the Wanchaq train station where the Andean Explorer leaves from. We were upgraded to a sixth floor executive room with a huge comfy bed and had a great night's sleep. Great bar and restaurant. Good quality breakfast. The concierge even took our bags over to...
