This was a great place to stay for the beginning of my trip to Peru and it was very wonderful to be picked up at the airport! Let it be known that the room is pretty cold, be prepared to sleep in layers. Luckily lots of blankets were provided. I would advise against using the laundry service. We were told that it would cost S/3,50 per kilo and were charged S/20 for a small to medium sized bag of laundry. This means our medium bag was 5 k. Or 12 lbs... Which simply wasn't the case.
All in all a good experience, wonderful family... Just do the laundry yourself in the sink.
The experience was very positive. The family was extremely helpful and willing to provide assistance to our tourism itinerary. The only thing to be of concern would be traveling during the winter months - the apartment is a little cold, which we believe is actually typical of most Cusco residences. Overall a good experience and a beautiful town.
Thanks Edward! We were glad to help you in your itinerary, and you could meet the main atractive in Cusco, Machu Picchu. yes the weather in Cusco in this season (may-agoust) is very cold..
In general the apt has a stove that you can move, and if you need we can provide more sheets, bedspreads, and all.
I had a great stay with Alexandra and her family. They are exceptionally kind and warm people. I got to taste some home cooked Peruvian food too, which was great! The house is a 15-20 min walk to downtown (Plaza de Armas), or a 5 minute taxi ride (for 4 soles, ~<$2 each way) -- so perfectly reasonable. Fast internet, clean bathroom, comfortable bed!
Alexandra and her family are lovely and very welcoming. They were kind to accommodate my very early check in and check out times, after some unfortunate changes to my travel schedule.
The apartment itself it very large and spacious as pictured, but as stated in other reviews, a bit outside of the city center (Plaza de Armas). It is about a 10 minute taxi ride, which costs about $3-4 pesos or a 25 minute walk. The neighborhoods seem safe, so walking was not an issue, although there are a lot of stray dogs which gave me pause at times. There was quite a bit of rain during the week that I visited, and unfortunately, the apartment has no heating except for a portable gas unit that didn't function well. I also experienced issues with hot water. And the kitchen is not well equipped, which was also a bit frustrating because that is my main reason for renting an apartment as opposed to staying in a hotel.
Finally, one of the last days that I was there, it rained so hard that the roof leaked to the apartment and I had to move out of the space. The family was able to give me an alternate room, but it too had no heat or hot water. I was disappointed that they didn't offer to reimburse that night. I'm sorry to say that I would not stay here again based on this experience, despite all of the family's efforts to make me comfortable. I spoke with other travelers who found other airbnb listings and hotels to be in the same price range for better accommodations.
I'm sorry what happened the last day but that out of our hands, we try to give you the best solution, in the beginning we showed you how to work the heating was working very well and you know, and the kitchen always was very well equipped, and hot water is in all house above all in showers, and did not mention that your first reason to rent it was, not feel the cigarette smell, so you were allergic, and we were careful throughout your stay. Excuse us again for the wrong time.
This apartment was absolutely perfect! It was made even more perfect by the fantastic family who hosted us. They picked us up from the airport and helped set us up with tours for sacred valley and Machu Picchu. The apartment was large and clean and only a 20 minute walk from the main plaza. I would recommend this stay to anyone!!!
Peru! What else can I say.
I was in Cusco for two awesome weeks. I'm glad I stayed with Alexandra and her family. They picked me up from the airport and gave me a quick tour of the city. The room was what I expected from what was listed. It had a clean bed, and a few dresser drawers to store your clothes and a clean bathroom. The accommodations are not a five star hotel but I was never in the room for much time except to sleep. After all I was on vacation much of the day I spent it outside exploring. I see a lot of reviewers complain about the hot water which was not a problem for me because I rented this place because of the price and not its amenities. The house/room was a little outside the city but that was ok because I got a chance to see and walk the rural Cusco and not stay in the over developed downtown area. The downtown area was a brisk 30min walk or a 5min taxi ride. Overall I would definitely stay with Alexandra and her kind family.
this is a huge apartment at the top of the family home. it consists of a very large lounge/dining area, with attached well equipped kitchen, separate bathroom and a huge bedroom, with a very comfortable bed and lots of cupboard space. the family are very helpful and supportive and provided everything we needed. the location is a little out of town but taxis were readily available and cost on 5 soles. I would highly recommend this to a couple
Very helpful, lovely hosts, her father took us on a tour of the sacred valley, can not say enough of how wonderful the family was. However, the flat is far from thr city center, it is big and confortable, but cold and we had problems with the hot water.
This family was so wonderful. The room and bathroom was very clean. I slept so well in the bed. Bruno, Alex and the rest of the family were very welcoming and made my stay amazing. For a small fee I got a great tour around the sacred valley and even had the pleasure of tasting some Peruvian food. I recommend staying here if you visit Cuzco. Thank you so much for your kindness and for inviting me into your home.
