About this listing
SAYA WASI offers you the pleasure of staying in a cozy B&B with two large private suites, located in the district of San Blas in Cusco, 5 min. from Plaza de San Blas, 10 min. from Plaza de Armas, center of all cultural activities.
This small haven will bring you peace of mind in the more rustic area of the imperial Inca city of Cusco.

Wow this place is SPECTACULAR! You cannot find a more tastefully appointed and awesomely designed place. You have access to a wonderful terrace overlooking Cusco and the surrounding mountains and our room shared the same view. Also, this shower is truly hot which is a luxury in the Andes, and Denis provided a much needed hair dryer (thank you!) Denis is a caring and devoted host who gave us suggestions for restaurants, packed us a lunch for our trip to Machu Picchu, and called us a very good cab to take to Poroy station. Overall fantastic. You will be lucky to rent this place. A word of warning however, that if you stay in the San Blas neighborhood you will have to climb many stairs as it is elevated, so please you must take it slow especially if you are like me and have lived your whole life at sea level!
This was our best stay so far!! Everything was perfect, the room was so cosy and the view of cusco was INCREDIBLE ! Also we really appreciate to have our breakfast in our room because it was too cold outside, we didn't except that, we were so surprised! Denis is an amazing host, always smiling and giving us advices about the city, very kind and available when we needed something. Also there were two adorable dogs that I already miss (maybe Lola a bit more than Jack). This was a little place of paradise. Thanks for everything !
My wife and I stayed with Denis for only one night and wish we had been able to stay longer. The place was great: very comfortable, with the promised incredible view, and notably, the loveliest breakfast we had during our two week trip to Peru. Denis was also a great host. He was incredibly helpful leading up to our stay and providing advice while we were there. You have to be ready to climb up to the top of San Blas to stay at Denis' place, but we would recommend it to friends and would love to go back next time we are in Cusco.
Denis and his place was GREAT. This was mine and my girlfriends first airbnb experience and we could not be happier. Denis allowed us to store our bags at his place while our room was being fixed up and also gave us great advice, from a giant list of his favorite food places and how to deal with altitude sickness. The following morning we had an excellent breakfast prepared for us at the time we wanted!!! Did I mention he has one of the best views of Cusco! Had such a great experience we as staying with him again when we come back to Cusco.
This is the most amazing space. The short walk up the stairs provides such amazing panoramas of Cusco. Looking over the city from the room was an amazing way to end each night. On top of that, the room provided all the comforts of home in a very attractive package.
Denis was a perfect host! He was very welcoming and attentive to out every need. He suggested sites to visit, food to eat, and shared various helpful tips for us to make the most of our time in Cuzco. The home and room we stayed in is beautifully decorated and includes all the necessities we needed to be comfortable. Denis served us a hot and delicious breakfast each morning with fresh fruit and hot coffee. The best part about this home is the view. It is just amazing! We will be recommending this home to all our friends and family who want to travel to Cuzco and we will definitely return on our next visit to Cuzco!
Can not say enough good things about Denis and this beautiful accomodation in the heart of Cuzco. Denis made us feel right at home from day one, so incredibly helpful and gracious! A very inspiring person.
The room was absolutely gorgeous with a spectacular view and in walking distance to all the shops and cafes of San Blas and Plaza de Armas.
Denis brought us a delicious breakfast each morning and treated us like family. He even arranged a taxi for us to make a day trip to Pisac and the llama farm which I would highly recommend!
This place is a true gem. We hope to be back here one day in the near future. Will recommend to family and friends as well.
Made our trip to Peru! Thanks Denis :)
