Stay here! Close to the Plaza del Armes. Helpful staff - English not great, but internet translations work. Good linens, good beds, hot water for showers could be better - but get over it! Good security, they arranged transport and connections - good people! Gotta love their breakfast! Just a super nice place, in Cusco of all places! A real...

Hotel El Andariego is in a good central location, yet far enough from the Plaza de Armas (less crowded). The hotel is situated away from the main street, behind two iron gates, and consists of two buildings. The rooms are nice and quiet, although during weekends the nearby disco may be heared during the night. Because the houses are old,...

We stayed at El Andariego for a total of nine days. It was a wonderful stay without real problems. The staff was incredibly helpful starting with their quick replies to all my emails full of questions. They were very attentive while we were there. The rooms were comfortable and the showers functioned well. There was a heater in each room...

We arrived late, by taxi, after a train ride from Aguas Calientes. The hotel is hard to find from the street. We wondered, how safe is this city, after going through two sets of steel gates to get to the hotel. The hotel is an old mansion set back in what would have been a courtyard. It has a nice...

This hotel was our "home" while in Cusco before and after a 9-day trek to Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. The hotel furnishings (in the lounge and in the room) are a bit tired, and, like the rest of Peru, there are no true 90-degree corners. However, the location was quite good (for access to Plaza del Armes) and the staff...

Spent 3 nights in this hotel and found the staff to be very helpful, especially Carlos. The breakfast was outstanding with eggs any way you liked them. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Convenient to Place de Armes and shopping. Truly a great value for the money. Diane

My review is in 2 parts: hotel and tour operator 1) The hotel's furnishings are very simple, however the service we received was 5 stars. The breakfast consisted of papaya/banana salad, eggs, bread, jam, fresh squeezed orange or papaya juice, tea/coffee. The water pressure was good and no significant problems with hot water. There was an electric heater that we...

I stayed here for a few days in January 2011 and I was very satisfied with this place. It's location is very close to the Plaza de Armas, but at the same time it's very quiet at night given that's located off the main street. The night manager Carlos was always extremely helpful for any question or request we had....

This hotel met our needs for 3 one night stays in November before/after the Inca trail hike and after a one week trip to Bolivia. Luggage storage was provided with no problems.
