“Quiet and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

Incasita is in the flat southern suburbs, a 3 soles taxi ride from the centre. It is in a dead-end side street. This means it was one of the quietest places we stayed during 6 weeks in Peru. The rooms were light and adequately equipped. Yes, it was cold, but everywhere high up in Peru is cold in the winter; few places have heating so everyone wears their hat and coat all the time (indoors in their own homes, in restaurants etc.) The beds were OK, with sufficient blankets; there is free Internet access; a sunny terrace with table and chairs; and a good supermarket round the corner.
All the family and staff were welcoming and accommodating: meeting us at the bus station, arranging laundry etc. We'd booked for 3 nights, and came back after Machu Picchu for another couple of nights as it was so comfortable and convenient. We were sorry to say goodbye.

Room Tip: Top floor matrimonial was great, the first floor triple slightly less convenient.

The people were nice and the location worked for us since we wanted to be close to the airport. However, the bed had a huge dip in it and we were up all night. I actually turned and tried to sleep with my head at the foot of the bed, but it was just as bad. Agony!

The hotel was beautiful and the staff was friendly. The only downside was that it was not in the city so we need to cab (3-5 soles which is like 1-2 USD, so it was no biggie) There is a bank and supermarket close by which was convenient .

Although the staff is extremely helpful and the hotel is very nice, this does not make up for the big issue with the beds.

I stayed in the matrimonial on the top floor.

Because of bad beds and pillows, I actually had to end my trip in Peru and I had to pay over $800.00 to buy an airline ticket to head back home for treatment on my neck.

The pain was so bad, that I could not move my neck and I was actually light headed for days from the pain when I was in Ollantaytambo, Lima and back in Canada. I couldn't sleep properly for days as a result and could not drive. It was very debilitating.

This place is not near the Plaza De Armas, and it is cold and it would not be a lie to say that the beds are so bad that it ruined my vacation; I had to return home. Its been almost a week later since I've stayed there, and my neck is still stiff and immobile and I am in great pain.

In addition, with the matrimonial room on the third floor, birds scurry around on the roof all day, so it can be very noisy.

I cannot recommend this place.
These owners really need to buy new beds and pillows if they want to ensure the safety of their guests; holding out on new mattresses and pillows are not worth it.
If you really want to stay here, ask for a room with new bedding.
