The place is only 2 blocks from San Pedro Market, where you can buy groceries, fruits, vegetables, handcrafts and more.
5 blocks from bus station to the Sacred Valley and Ollantaytambo, where you have to catch the train to Machupicchu.

The place is ideal for traveler people that would like to save some money from not staying at pricey hotels and at the same time enjoy the best that Cusco has to offer, since it is not far from downtown, also great for the tourist looking to see a bit of what life is like for the local citizen.

I live here, so i can recommend places to visit, restaurants, markets, things to do and more.

If you need help with the many places around and outside town (including Machu Picchu), I can help you by putting you into contact with my friend and neighbor who is one of the best guides in town and works with a very confident and secure travel agency that offers tours at very reasonable prices.

Actual rate is for one person.
Extra people: $10 / night, after the first guest.

Apartment can accommodate up to 3 people, rates can be negotiable, please inquire.

  • Huge apartment with everything you will need for longer stays. Checkin and checkout made easy with Raul's father living in same apartment block. Walking distance to most important touristic spots. Older style furnishings but very clean. Felt like a home. Highly recommended!

  • Raul was away during our stay but we were greeted and treated like family by his parents. If you like to travel like a “native” this is the perfect place. It is located in an apartment complex, just a 15 minute walk from the center of town, where you can shop from the locals. There is no shortage of local stands, markets and vendors. The apartment has all the essentials if you want to prepare your own meals. It is spacious and the bed is VERY comfortable.

  • Tuvimos una buena experiencia, volveríamos a hospedarnos porque el departamento es cómodo y tiene todos los elementos para estar a gusto.

    Algunas cuestiones a tener en cuenta: el depto es muy amplio y por lo tanto un poco frío, sobre todo al momento de bañarte. Lo bueno es que tiene estufa y una gran cantidad de frazadas, muy útiles para la noche.

    Queda un poco alejado del centro, una caminata de al menos unos 20 minutos, y durante el camino se atraviesa una zona aledaña al mercado San Carlos que no es muy linda.

    Adicionalmente la mamá de Raul, Vilma, fue nuestra anfitriona y ha sido un ángel con nosotros, ayudándonos cada vez que la necesitamos, y muy generosa, nos convidó comidas y bebidas típicas.

  • Raul was the perfect host! My friend and I really enjoyed getting to know Raul during our 3 days in Cusco at his apt. His apt was spacious and very comfortable. It is located in a non-touristy area conveniently close to the Mercado Central de San Pedro where you can pick up all kinds of good stuff to eat and take home as souvenirs. The kitchen is well-stocked and included an electric teapot, coffee maker and microwave.

    On our return trip from trekking to Machu Picchu, it was particularly nice to have the use of a washer & dryer in the apt. And for those travelers who need to know this, the hot water shower pressure isn't the best and a bit tricky to use but you get used to it.

    We also enjoyed the use of Raul's stereo to listen to music and TV to watch DVDs in the living room. These little things and comforts from home helped to make our stay in Cusco that much more enjoyable.

    Raul is an intelligent, talented young man and musician. He is fluent in English. Raul is kind, friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable. He literally went the extra mile for us. He kindly took the time to take us to two Incan ruins just outside of Cusco, Q'enqo and Saqsaywayman (both highly recommended). We enjoyed Raul's warm hospitality/company and learned a great deal about the fascinating ancient cultures of his people and country.

    Fantastic overall experience and highly recommended host/apt.

  • Raul is a great person - very laid back and willing to be of help. He even walked us around the local area on our arrival so we could locate the market and supermarket. The apartment is located very conveniently to everything you may need to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are spacious and airy. However, the apartment is somewhat rundown and in desperate need of a thorough cleaning. It was also very cluttered with a lot of personal items.

    Response from Raul:

    Sorry but i have to move, pack and storage some of my personal stuff somewhere in the house in order to host you. Also you came 4 days after your friends and their dog checked in, house is not gonna look as clean as the first checking day.
    Anyway sorry it was not up to your full expectations and thanks for letting me know so we can do better next time. Raul

  • My husband and I stayed at Raul's place for 3 nights. It was exactly as advertised - internet, hot water, kitchen, and plenty of space. Slightly off the beaten track which was nice and very close to Plaza de Armas (10 min walk). Raul was super helpful and gave some excellent recommendations on restaurants. Totally worth it!

  • We tried to book one of Raul's apartments, it was full but he had another one available. It is a cute, cosy two bedroom that sleeps up to 3 people.

    It is only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town and the market, so a fantastic location.

    The house is surprisingly warm despite the freezing nights and Raul has a heater if you need it.

    We were so happy to stay there and really appreciated the kitchen and the wifi (decent speed!). The shower is not amazing for water pressure but it is hot enough, just don't use the water in the kitchen while the shower is on :)

    The best thing about the whole experience was Raul who is a fantastic host. He went out of his way to look after us and even let us leave our luggage at his house when we went to Machu Pichu.

    We would have stayed again on our return but it was booked.

    Raul's apartment is a great home away from home and Raul himself is one of the most friendly and helpful people you will ever stay with. Highly Recommend!

  • Apartment was exactly as pictured. Comfortable, warm beds. Reliable wifi connection. Secure location. Nice hot shower. It´s a 10-15 min walk to the main plaza and maybe a 7 min walk to San Pedro Market. Overall, a really nice spot to spend time in Cusco. It´s a bit apart from the touristy part of town, so you really get a feel for local daily life.
    The host and his family are very warm, trustworthy people. Raul was even flexible and was willing to refunded us some of the money we had paid through AirBnB when we had to change our plans last minute. I would definitely stay here again.
