This is a historic - charming -mansion with all the comfort and ammenities required when traveling to Cusco. The rooms are spacious, extra clean, comfortable. Well located, close to everything, walking distance to the main square. The staff is courteous, amicable and super helpful. The rooms look into a beautiful central patio and overlook the Korikancha (the temple of the sun). It is the best places to stay when traveling on vacation with children.

Room Tip: all rooms are great!

We stayed here 2 days before our Machu Pichu trip to acclimatise ourselves and 1 day after the hike. Hotel is old and rustic and situated in an alley way. If you blink while looking for it, you're going to miss it. The only saving grace is that it is very close to the center of Cuzco. Check-in was a breeze and staff were nice and helpful. The room we had was on the 2nd floor which you have to take a very steep 15 steps to get to the top, you have to be careful with your steps and hold the railing tightly if not you'll be part of this hotel's history if you fall down. We were assisted by staff with our luggage up the stairs though. The room (202) just on top of the stair was very small, it has a double (small queen?) bed just enough for the 2 of us with a small table and 2 chairs. Very small toilet with hot water with very noisy exhaust fan when you turn on the lights and equally small space to hang our clothes. There is not enough power outlet in the room, that is why we always bring a power board with us with extension for situation like this. Wi-fi in the room was just ok and sometimes it won't connect. Breakfast was bananas, orange juice and one time Kiwi fruit. Eggs was offered but not automatically served on the table and you have to ask for it. Bread was hard and coffee was nothing to talk about. I don't know the other rooms which other people rave about, but with ours, it's small and I personally don't like it. This is one hotel in our trip that I was disappointed.

Room Tip: Don't get room 202, it's small for 2 people with a very steep stairs to climb.

Unaytambo has a great location. It is directly across from Oorikancha and Tea Time. There are also different price range restaurants, ranging from fine dinning to TexMex within a few metres of the hotel.
You can find an ATM inside the big hotel on the corner of the laneway.
Unaytambo is a boutique style hotel, with a few rooms, located in an ancient building. If architecture is your thing, you will appreciate the thick walls and wooden beams.

The Señorita working in the kitchen will cook your breakfast egg to order, as you sit in the courtyard, with Oorikancha as your backdrop.

There is tea and coffee in the lobby throughout the day



Be sure to say hello to Yesica and Rene at reception.

Very cosy, comfortable boutique hotel. We loved to be close to the center of town, we also appreciated the friendly and professionnal staff. The bedding is very good, the rooms are nicely furnished, the patio, where you can enjoy a cup of tea at the end of the day is a real plus. Breakfast is perfect. We will come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs very nice.
