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. This place is the meeting point for artists and locals, walking distance to cafes, galleries , museums and banks. You will comfortably walk in the pedestrian streets or stay at the hotel to laze off on the terrace and admire the incredible view of the historical center of the city.
All our guests have access to the terrace of the house.
Interaction with Guests
We speak English, French and Spanish to serve you in the planning of you trip to the Cusco region. In addition we can offer you tip for restaurants, cafes, bars or discos or banks, at your convenience.
San Blas is located behind the main Plaza de Armas in Cusco, where you will find galleries, cafes, restaurants, museums, bars and banks; all to a walking distance.
The most efficient way to come to Saya Wasi is by taxi, about 15 min. Or 30 min. to Poroy train station if you plan to go to Machu Picchu.

We loved our time here! Next time we plan to spend more than one evening here. The place is exactly as described and even better. The view is spectacular! We felt very welcome. Breakfast, that was included, was wonderful.
After we checked out we needed assistance to connect with our tour group and Hernan was fantastic to help us out...thank you.
We highly recommend this home and hope to come back again!!
What a beautiful place. Amazing. The view was great. The "room" was huge, pretty much a studio. If in cusco I'd recommend to friends and family. Oh and breakfast was amazing.
This place really offers a great view!At night you can lie under your wonderful warming blanket and look at the lights of cusco. (Of course there are also curtains.) The room is wonderful, there are even rocks in it where you can sit on. We were welcomed very friendly, got a great choice for breakfast (which we had on the terrace) and we got a fantastic breakfast to go on the second morning because we had to leave early. We would stay here again. Thank you!
We had a fabulous experience at Denis's lovely B&B! The views from the terrace and our room were absolutely incredible---we had the entire city of Cusco laid out below us. Denis gave us helpful advice about where to visit, eat, and shop, and he was so welcoming and hospitable. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We felt so relaxed and comfortable here. Thank you, Denis!
Denis is the perfect Air BnB host. Very quick to communicate, respond to emails, go the extra mile to help you and make you feel comfortable, safe, and welcome. I’ve used Air BnB around the globe, and have fortunately always had positive experiences. Denis exceeded all expectations I had for a good host. He was positive, present, quick w advise on whatever you need. All of his restaurant recommendations proved to be perfect for us, and he was great at reading us, and understanding what we were looking for. He booked us numerous taxi’s using his own personal, reliable contacts with specific taxi drivers. As many others said, he happily stored our bags when we left town for several days to go trekking. He also responded to a last minute request to help book us a taxi when we weren’t even staying with him anymore. He instantly booked us the ride that we needed, and confirmed right away. Made our travels easy and carefree.
The space is pretty perfect for the price and location. It is up on the hill so you can expect to walk many steps, but that is the case for just about anywhere you need to get in Cusco. No more than 10 minutes to get from the apartment to Plaza de Armas, and just a couple of minutes to San Blas plaza. Shower was HOT! And, the best part, Denis prepares you breakfast each morning! A delicious breakfast! This is above and beyond any service I’ve received at any other Air Bnb lodging before. Thank you Denis!
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 !
