Unexpectedly wonderful! Much attention has been paid to the decor and ambience. There was even a jet spa in the room! Fresh, tasty food! Wish we could have stayed longer. We had no issues with altitude sickness but there was coca tea and oxygen tanks in the lobby.

This was a great place to stay! Close to the plaza de armas. Staff was very helpful and rooms were very clean. Breakfast buffet was good. Definitely a wonderful time in Cusco. I highly recommend it. They kept our luggage for the day when we went to Aguascalientes.

After sleeping in a tent for three nights straight a bed and a jacuzzi is an ultimate luxury. A room upgrade is like hitting a jackpot. Big room with a jacuzzi and spacious bathroom. I never sleep as good as i remember. Great variety of breakfast, fresh and the staff are friendly. Thumps up Taypikala.

rooms were clean and nice. The location was an easy walk to the historic centre and to the craft markets. Breakfast was good - decent variety and with an omelette station. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Cost of taxi from airport to hotel was only 10 soles which we also thought was pretty reasonable.

Rooms were nice and clean. They had a fridge, which was nice. Nice bathroom, and comfortable beds. The location was an easy walk to restaurants and many tourist attractions. It was located on a very narrow street, that made it hard for cabs to drop off or pick up, but it was possible. The staff was very helpful and they...
