Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was easily the best apartment I have ever rented from AirBnB. The host was very friendly and accommodating. The apartment was immaculate. The terrace was exactly as shown. We spent an entire morning relaxing and reading there instead of exploring Cusco because it was so nice.

    The breakfast was delicious and filling. Hot water was available 24h. The location was convenient as long as you don't mind climbing a short flight of stairs up from the streets below (about 20m). It was 10 min to walk to Plaza de Armas.

    I would definitely go back here if I were to return to Cusco.

  • The best view in Cusco was the most extraordinary, pleasant & comfortable experience of hospitality. First of all the location of the property and the view is breath taking, you see the whole Cusco town through your bedroom window day and night, with a sunset, sunrise and the night lights. A view to remmember. Location is very convenient and walking distance to almost everything. Having said that, what really made our trip is the host Denis! He and his team provided the highest hospitality services with full breakfast and even made us a take away lunch as we were leaving. He also has an exclusive taste to food and can recommend the best places to eat out in town! Overall we felt like home away and not only experienced Cusco to the full, thanks to Denis, but also made a good friend ;-)

  • This is a gem! Killer views, breakfast served to you in your room and a really helpful host really made my stay memorable. Denis was very thoughtful and considerate. He even packed me a breakfast and snack for an early departure on the Inca Trail. Thanks for your hospitality!

  • Staying with Denis is an absolute must when in Cusco! Not only was the actual space amazing (great views, comfortable bed, hot shower, T.V., tasty food, and overall cozy feeling), but Denis was a spectacular host. He was so helpful from the moment we booked with him. Denis is very friendly and hospitable. He was flexible with our arrival times and provided useful tips for navigating the city. He went above and beyond to make sure we made it safely to the airport. He not only called us a cab, but walked and waited with us at the pick up location. And, he packed us lunches/breakfast to take with us that were much appreciated at 12:30 in the Lima airport. You MUST stay with Denis at his amazing home!

  • This was the best airbnb I have ever stayed in. Will probably be the best one I ever stay in. The location was great. Perched above the city in the lovely San Blas neighborhood. It was also just a short walk from the main square. The room was incredible and felt very private. There are floor to ceiling windows, sitting in your bed you can over look the entire city. You also have access to an incredible patio. The pictures don't even do it justice. The hosts were both so friendly and welcoming. Helped me find things to do and places to eat. They also provided me with a great lunch!

  • This is probably one of the best places you could stay in Cusco, so stop your searching. The room we stayed in was on its own floor in Denis' large home, which is great because it feels like a private apartment (it has a separate entrance). The bed is furnished with a comfortable duvet, clean sheets, and faces floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows showcasing a lovely view of the city and its mountains. You will love waking up and falling asleep here. Especially when Denis treats you to a scrumptious breakfast every morning.

    Staying with Denis demonstrates for me the best of what Airbnb can offer: a clean and comfortable home with inspiring decor, a great location and environment (conveniently located in a hip part of the city, San Blas, nearby the city centre, Plaza de Armas), and a host —more accurately, your close friend — that goes out of his way to make your stay extraordinary. From the lovely chats on the terrace, the breakfasts on white table linen, to hanging out, you will be so spoiled by Denis. Take your time to explore this great city and ensure you make your stay with Denis!

    Merci beaucoup Denis et à bientôt!

  • I will never stay anywhere else in Cusco. Such accommodating and friendly hosts! The view is indeed unstoppable and not distant at all from the Plaza de Armas. It was hard to sleep at night, I didn't want to take my eyes off such a lovely panorama. And after two weeks pf heavy Peruvian blankets the down quilt was heavenly! Very helpful that Denis speaks English though that's just icing on the cake.

    Hi Marcia. Thanks for the message. We do have a (website hidden) page, still waiting for tripadvisor to post our page.

    Enjoyed meeting you.

    Denis and Herman have been the best hosts. It feels like our second home. The room is amazing for the rate, breakfast first rate, hosts above all else extremely welcoming, happy, 'can't do enough for you' attitude. So kind , we even were invited for Christmas supper-delicious.
    The balcony and terrace are a sun trap.
    You'd be a fool not to stay. The best place so far.

  • La casa se encuentra en una zona suficientemente tranquila como para poder descansar pacíficamente, y suficientemente cerca de plaza de armas como para ser conveniente cuando se decida salir al centro de Cuzco. La casa se encuentra en una zona que no es transitable por carros, lo cual podría hacerlo inconveniente para los huéspedes, dependiendo de las circunstancias. La vista de la ciudad es espectacular, especialmente durante la noche. La habitación es sumamente cómoda, con mucho espacio. El baño es completo, con agua caliente y calentador que funcionan como es de esperarse. Denis es un excelente host, súper amigable y con mucho conocimiento sobre el área y los lugares importantes de la zona, además de que habla fluido en inglés y español.

    Estoy sumamente contento de haberme quedado en esa casa, y definitivamente lo haría de nuevo. Altamente recomendado.

  • Un lugar hermoso en Cusco, que ya es hermoso de por sí. Al llegar quedamos impactados por la vista de la habitación hacia el pueblo, al ser un gran ventanal, se veía una panorámica excelente de todas las casas, los techos de teja, las iglesias y las montañas con nubes de fondo, de noche se encienden todas las luces de la ciudad, y el panorama recordaba a las vistas aéreas de un avión sobrevolando una ciudad por la noche.

    Denis y Hernán son dos grandes anfitriones, desde el momento en que pisamos la casa nos hicieron sentir muy bienvenidos, lo primero que nos sirvieron, fue un te de coca con azúcar de caña, traído a la habitación, para que el cuerpo se aclimate a la altura. Varios detalles como este que hicieron de la estadía un placer y un lugar que se sentía hogar y volver de nuestras aventuras por Cusco a este espacio era uno de los mayores deleites del día.

    Denis nos ayudó a gestionar parte de nuestro viaje, acompañándonos personalmente a comprar los boletos del tren hacia Machu Picchu y la entrada general a todas las ruinas. No tenía por qué, pero lo hizo de muy buena gana y nos sentimos muy bien compartiendo esos momentos con él.

    Debemos confesar que disfrutamos mucho del acento francés de Denis.

    10 estrellas para este hermoso lugar dirigido por muy linda gente. :)
