We had spent 3 nights in this apartment . Rooms are clean, but small. There were shower, internet, TV, and really great Peruvian hot breakfast. The location of this apartment is very good- there are a lot of markets, tourism offices, local cafeterias and the main square is near. But the best thing was heartiness of Ruth and her family! Thanks for all.
Paul, Ruth and the family were extremely welcoming and accommodating. We originally had one night reserved, but ended up staying an additional night after a 4-day trek to Machu Picchu. They were so nice as to let my friend and I leave our extra bags that we didn't want to bring on the hike. If I ever come back to Cuzco, which is highly likely, I would love to stay with this family again. They truly made us feel at home and helped us transition to a new city and culture with ease. Thank you to this amazing family!
Paul is a great host and has big plans to become the king of hospitality in Cusco. We stayed with his sister, Ruth, and they are both very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to get to know the family! Thanks for everything!*
Paul, his sister Ruth, and their wonderful family were the most gracious and welcoming hosts. We had absolutely no troubles during our stay and were welcomed back after our trek to Salkantay and Machu Picchu without question. I definitely recommend staying with them in Cusco, as Paul knows much about the city and the people. Hopefully, I will have the chance to return someday and stay with them again.
We had a good time at Ruths Place. The flat is basic but absolutely worth the price and Ruth cooked us breakfast every morning. Her tortilla de platano is so delicious! Ruth, Paul and their families are very lovely people. They were helpful all the time and we spend some hours talking and sitting together. Thanks for the great time! Muchas gracias Ruth, para todo - ha sido un placer conocerte!
A nossa estadia em Qosqo, na casa dos irmāos Paulo e Ruth e sua familia, foi excelente e, ao final de tudo, diria até muito divertida e edificante em função de uma grande paralisaçāo de trabalhadores que, mobilizados, fecharam ruas e passagens da cidade fazendo com que os turistas somente pudessem transitar a pé pela cidade.
E foi isto que fizemos no nosso último dia em Qosqo, motivados pelos nossos anfitriões Paulo e Ruth que nos levaram, gentilmente, a pé desde a piscina de Wanchaq até o aeroporto de Qosqo.
Foram 4 kilometros de uma bonita caminhada em que pudemos ver a Qosqo real (fora dos cartões postais e dos roteiros turísticos) . Fomos muito bem recebidos por uma bonita familia em uma casa simples mas muito confortavel e aconchegante e com um café da manha sempre muito reforcado.
Se um dia voltarmos a Qosqo (que espero que seja em breve) certamente ficaremos feliz em estar com estes amigos Paulo e Ruth na sua casa novamente.
Nuestra estancia en el Qosqo, la casa de los hermanos Paul y Ruth y su familia, que era excelente y al final de todo, yo incluso diría muy entretenido y estimulante debido a un gran paro de los trabajadores, movilizados, cerrado calles y aceras de la ciudad haciendo que sólo los turistas podía caminar al tránsito a través de la ciudad.
Y eso es lo que hicimos en nuestro último día en el Qosqo, motivados por nuestros anfitriones Paul y Ruth nos llevaron caminar suavemente desde la piscina di Wanchaq hasta el aeropuerto.
Hubo 4 kilómetros de una hermosa caminata donde pudimos ver la verdadera Qosqo (fuera de las tarjetas postales e itinerarios turísticos). Fuimos muy bien recibidos por una hermosa familia en un sencillo pero muy cómodo y acogedor y con un desayuno en casa siempre mejorada.
Si un día volvermos a Qosqo (que espersmos que sea pronto) estaremos sin duda felices de estar con estos amigos Paul y Ruth de nuevo en su casa.
Paul and his sister are absolutely fabulous hosts! Starting from the coordination Paul was always available and quick to respond. He came to the airport to pick us, had recommendations on what to do, where to eat, where and how to do it and even helped us get a sense of what things should cost. Ruth (Pauls sister who actually owns/lives in the apartment) had coca tea ready for us when we got there and made us delicious authentic Peruvian breakfasts every morning. Paul even provided us with a prepaid phone. The apartment itself is quaint the rooms are a great size considering we weren't spending much time in them. The washroom has less amenities then you would expect coming from North America, but for what you're paying you make due with what you've got.
The wifi works decently in the living room and doesn't reach the top floor.
The apartment is in a safe location about 15-20 minutes walk from the main square, super convenient!
Overall great experience with extremely generous hosts, would absolutely recommend to others.
Paul's home is very warn and welcoming, you really live with his family
Paul es un excelente anfitrión, siempre atento con nosotros, nos buscó en el aeropuerto, nos ofreció un teléfono para que podamos entrar en contacto por cualquier duda. Cuando hubo algún problema con el tiempo y nosotros demoramos en volver a casa, él nos llamó para saber sí estábamos bien. Nos mostró la ciudad y ofreció informaciones sobre dónde comer, dónde ir y no ir.
Su hermana Ruth también fue muy cuidadosa con nosotros, de la misma manera que su familia. Pasamos buenos momentos con esa familia cuzqueña que hasta nos ensenó un poco de la lengua quechua.
Vamos a llevar buenos recuerdos de nuestros días en Cusco.
La casa está ubicada muy cerca de la estación Wanchaq, donde partimos hasta Machu Picchu y al otro día hasta Ollantaytambo en bus siguiendo las orientaciones de Ruth. Ese viaje fue muy interesante, con lindos paisajes del campo, del Valle Sagrado.
The apartment is in a great location; I would highly recommend it. The walk from the house to Plaza de Armas only takes 15-20 minutes. Pretty much everything in Cuzco is a walkable distance. The host is actually Paul's sister, Ruth. She is very very kind and considerate. She doesn't speak much English, but she's learning and always tries her best in understanding you. Ruth and Paul are both very welcoming and always willing to help. They recommended me and my friend great local restaurants and places to visit to complete our experience in Peru.
Regarding the house, Ruth keeps it cozy and clean. But we had little issues with the shower - in order to get hot water the water pressure had to be low; for a decent water pressure, the water would be freezing.
The wifi is better in the living room than the bedroom but still leaves something to be desired (extremely slow).
I highly recommend the stay at Paul's. It's a fantastic price for a private room and bathroom and the location. Ruth lives with her family so you can meet them and practice your Spanish. I had a blast and I have no doubt that you will too.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
