What makes this house unique


Guestbook comments from the manager

Colonial House. was spacious and very comfortable.

Location in the Historic District of Cusco was convenient, within easy walking distance of the large and eclectic San Pedro Central Market , the main square, Plaza de Armas and other tourist sites.

The manager, Benjamin, who lives next door, a math professor and professional musician , was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the rooms nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and the washer/dryer came in handy.

The large woodburning fireplace was a plus on cooler nights.

The available breakfast, including tamales Cusquenas, were tasty.

Maps and plenty of tourist info were provided.

Being in the Historic District, we quickly felt we were part of a vibrant community.

This was a great choice for us and we hope to return.

Great place for a large group in Cusco

  • 5 of 5

My group of 6 travelers loved staying here during our time in Cusco. The place was comfortable, clean, and Marita took the time both when we arrived and throughout our visit to make sure we felt comfortable. She even took the time to recommend sites to see and her favorite restaurants.

Beautiful property, chonvenient location

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cusco. The home was, clean and well appointed. We were greeted by the host upon our arrival and they were available to address any needs we had. We were a family of six and had plenty of room. There was one watch out: we were there in July and the night time temperatures were in the low 30s F and the house was NOT HEATED. There was a fireplace, but it provided limited heat through the house.

Perfect Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Colonial House! It was the perfect location close to the Plaza de las Armas, maybe an 8 minute walk. Marita was very hospitable and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here with a group of friends or one family.

The house did get a bit cold, so be sure to utilize the fireplace upstairs and all of the extra blankets!
