We were greeted at the airport by the wonderful and very friendly Mercedes. She took us to the Hostal Girasoles explaining the location of things as we drove. Once we arrived she gave us tea to help with the altitude and recommended we rest before sightseeing. The place was very nice and clean. Our room was right next to the...

After scouring TripAdvisor for the ideal stay in Cusco, I settled upon Hostal Girasoles for its value, airport pick-up & rave reviews. I was not disappointed. The staff is EXTREMELY helpful, warm and for a non-Spanish speaker, it was a bonus we could easily converse in English. I had emailed the owner prior to our visit to organize our accommodation....

Hostal Girasoles was cozy and charming! They could not have been more welcoming. We were helped in from the taxi and given tea as soon as we arrived. The rooms were comfy with TV and hot water. They also helped us to arrange a taxi to take us through the Sacred Valley. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

We stayed in this hostal for 4 nights during our trip to Peru in August 2010. The hostal was clean and organized, nice room with big window. Good shower with strong hot water pressure. No hot water in the sink, which is pretty standard in Peru. Mercedes and her staff were very helpful to organize tours and arrange airport transfer....

Mercedes and her team took care of just about every detail from the time we arrived in Cusco. Thanks to them, we saw the best sites, had an easy time getting around, enjoyed a comfortable stay, and even got the best table at one of the town's best restaurants!

Hostal Cirasoles Cusco is THE BEST and THE ONLY place to stay in Cusco. It is close to the major plaza and most tourist areas of Cusco but it is off a small very quiet alley. The rooms are rather small but very, very clean and the water is hot. But the best part of our 2 week stay was...
