There are lots of hotels to choose from in Cusco but if you choose Tierra Viva Saphi you will not be disappointment. We stayed 3 nights in January after we hiked the Inca trail. We acclimatized in Ollantaytambo before the hike. When we arrived in Cusco we did notice the altitude more. The location of the hotel is perfect. It...

This hotel has it all - super helpful staff, extremely clean and comfy rooms, new renovated feel, and convenient location. We talked with several staff members, and everyone was willing to go the extra mile (even help me haggle with a rude taxi driver over outrageous fare). Jorge is the man. The rooms look like they've been renovated and are...

We spent three nights at the beginning of our Peru visit and one more at the end. We were conveniently located near the main square and many fine restaurants. The rooms were comfortable and newly remodeled.

After a few disappointing experiences in Lima accommodations, we were delighted to enter the top floor suite of this lovely retreat, only steps from the historic square of Cusco. The staff could not be more helpful and welcoming, and the hotel is a gem!

Another boutique hotel in the Tierra Viva family, this location is small but offers the neat experience of staying in a typical Cusco building. It is located on a side street and you have to walk a bit to get to one of the main plazas, but that means that it is quiet. There are several great restaurants tucked away...

Staff were fantastic - no request was too much. Always friendly and asking to help. The room and facilities were excellent. Our stay at this hotel made our trip to Cusco a really emjoyable time - always having a great hotel to come back to at the end of each day.

Well situated hotel with clean spacious rooms and really friendly helpful staff. Five minute walk to the main square so far enough away to be nice and quiet but close enough for easy reach to bars, restaurants and shops. Good value to boot.

My wife and I booked a 3-nights and ended up staying 6 nights because of the quality of the property and the terrific service.

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
