Cusco is high on many travelers’ lists and for good reason. The city is a cultural mishmash of Inca, Spanish, and Gringo influences, which come together in some delightful and truly unique ways—there are buildings that have both ancient Incan stonework and Spanish construction, and restaurants that fuse Peruvian and American flavors. Cusco is also close to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley and serves as a convenient stopping point while visiting these places. There are a number of impressive attractions to visit within Cusco and ample activities to enjoy outside the city, including hiking, mountain biking, rafting, and bird watching.
For travelers who want a comfortable and centrally located hotel, Casa Andina Cusco Koricancha is a fabulous option. This hotel is just four blocks from Cusco’s Plaza de Armas and a range of cultural attractions, restaurants, shops, and bars. The hotel’s convenient location makes it easy to explore Cusco.
The rooms are spread out over two colonial houses and around two courtyards. There are lovely places to sit inside or outside, and the staff here is very nice.
The 54 rooms are cute and comfortable. All rooms have a private bathroom with a hot water shower and hair dryer. Important possessions can be stored in a safety deposit box, and there is an LCD TV to keep you entertained during free time. Heaters help keep guests warm during cooler months. The Superior Rooms also have a living room, bathtub and mini-fridge. Some rooms have big windows that overlook the courtyard.
Each morning a complimentary breakfast buffet is served in the hotel’s dining room. The buffet includes options like eggs, toast, pancakes, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. Waking up to a hot meal is a great way to begin your day in Cusco.
