Wonderful hotel in San Blas area. It has a beautiful view (we slept with our curtains open to enjoy the city lights). Breakfast was brought to our room by the wonderful staff. The only downside is that you have to walk up many steps to get to the hotel which can be difficult with luggage. Bathroom is a little rustic.

Saya Wasi was the perfect home away from home. Our room was large, clean, and had a stunning view of Cusco from a wall-sized window. The room had a great shower and a heater along with cozy blankets. Located in the San Blas neighborhood, it is safe to walk at night and close to loads of fantastic restaurants and coffee...

This is a beautiful place to stay in Cusco with a great view of the city. The rooms are spacious, fully equipped and Denis is a wonderful host. He packed a lunk for our trip to Machu Picchu and was very welcoming and helpful!

We stayed at Saya Wasi for a week, and it was fabulous. Dennis is a wonderful host who went well beyond reasonable expectations to help make our stay enjoyable- Restaurant recommendations, booking taxis & suggesting interesting destinations. The breakfasts were fresh & delicious. And the views!!!! Awesome. The steps up from town were at times a challenge, but worth it.

We stayed for 2 nights then went on our trek on the Inca trail. Denis allowed us to keep our bags there while we were gone which was a HUGE help for...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our night in Cuzco and it was marvelous! Denis arranged to meet us where our taxi dropped us off so that we could find the place easily, which was a huge help since we were lugging big bags. I wish we could've had a longer stay! The accommodations were excellent and the breakfast...

This is definitely a solid place to stay if you are looking to vacation in Cusco. Our host was very gracious and packed us sandwiches for our hikes. He was also very knowledgeable about the area and knew all the best places to eat and shop. The BnB is close to many local restaurants and shops and has an amazing...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Saya Wasi in Cusco (the upper house in Quechua) is a private house that offers you the pleasure of staying in a cozy B & B of only two rooms, located in the San Blas area in Cusco, 5 min from Plaza de Armas. This small haven will bring you peace of mind in the more rustic area of the imperial Inca city. This place is the meeting point for artists, close to cafes and galleries. You will comfortably walk in the pedestrian streets or stay at the hotel to laze off on the terrace and admire the view of the elusive historical center of the city. Excellent location. Close to museums, cafes, restaurants. 5 Min walk from Plaza de Armas. 10 Min by taxi from the airport. 30 Min from the train station of Poroy if you are planning to visit Machu Picchu. We speak English, French and Spanish and we will gladly help you in your travel planning. ... more   less
