I stayed here before and after trek to Machu Picchu. They held my bag while I was away and I didn't even have to take it out of my room. Camilo was very nice and helpful any time I needed anything. I would highly recommend getting them to pick you up from the airport or train station since it can... More

Used as a base for Cusco excursions. Bit of an uphill walk, but will be compensated by cosy rooms, very friendly staff and stunning views from the rooftop terrace. Breakfast is fresh but could be richer in terms of variety.

Very well situated in the Don Bosco area, with a nice view over the Plaza de Armas. Everything is in walking distance! A warm welcome, good service, nice breakfast, helpful, patio... more than worth talking the steps up from the Plaza de Armas

We stayed here five nights and also left our bags before heading to Machu Picchu. Very cute place, lots of neat decorations. Easy to find, albeit a steep hike, and very close to Plaza de Armas and access to the ruins north of town (Sacsayhuamán). Camilo gave us TONS of information about places to visit. I speak pretty good Spanish,... More

We had an excellent experience during our stay at Piccola Locanda. Very friendly staff, beautiful rooms and very relaxed/homy atmosphere. Quite a hike to get to the hotel but worth it. It gets you prepped for Machu Picchu or other hikes you have planned. I would stay there again!

I never write reviews because I stay in a lot of hostels and I'm too lazy (traveling for over a year), but I write this review because of the unique generosity of the people here. I stayed here several sets of nights over winter break. We stayed in three different rooms. All were clean, there were heaters, the mattresses were... More

This place was suggested to me by a friend and true to his recommendation it does have character. It is beautifully done up especially the rooms. My husband and I stayed at this place for 2 nights, and we were the only ones at the B&B. A lot of TA reviews have mentioned about the number of steps to the... More

Stayed here twice during my trip in Peru. I loved this place! Its colorful interior and friendly staff made it a home away from home.

I can’t recommend this place enough. Nice rooms, consistent hot water, and great common areas. Cusco in general tends to be expensive, so I think this is a good value for your money although it's more than a basic hostel. The staff was really helpful and promptly took care of any needs. It is run by a family and helps... More

“There are rooms with private bathrooms but if you don't mind sharing a bathroom it is cheaper to book a room without one.”
