This is a nice little hotel with high ceilings and spacious rooms. The hotel is only 5 mins away from Plaza de Armas, but the walk is steep. It can be very hard especially on the first day. However this did prepare us for the trek up to Machu Picchu. We wanted to stay here again after our trek, but...

The hotel has long corridors, artistic decor and readily available coca tea. What was most impressive was the hotel staff. They were very helpful and we got lots of good tips about local restuarants to eat in and places to shop. The view at night was great and it is affordable if you are okay with walking 5-10 mins from...

I found the location typical. Everything in Cusco is uphill. I say suck it up or pay the $1.30 to take a taxi. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean. I agree the floors are creaky (so get the room on the top floor) and the school is noisy (although only during the day). I...

Excellent staff and a wonderful hotel, excellent value for money. Hotel was close to the main square, only downside is that the hotel is uphill which can be tough during your first few days aclimatising. With this in mind, it would have been handy to have somewhere nearby for dinner.

Located a good walk from city center this would not have been my first choice if staying in Cusco to enjoy the city. A nice newly restored monastery with huge hallways and very large rooms. The ceilings were nearly 20 ft tall in my room. The room was a bit simple but comfortable having all the amenities that you would...

I stayed at the Don Bosco for 5 nights in early May and as much as I'd like to give this hotel a good review because of the kind staff and clean rooms it just cant happen. As some of the reviews mention the hotel is up a step hill from the main plaza and while I walked up everytime...

First things first: though it may only be 200 meters from the Plaza de Armas, it's an uphill 200 meters, so it feels quite far (especially for those of us affected by the altitude change). The first half of Avenida Suecia has shops and cafes, but the second half is pretty deserted after dark. I didn't feel unsafe, just that...
