San Blas Double Room + Amazing View

House - Private room · Jatun Rumiyoc, Cusco, Cuzco, Peru

Hola! An opportunity to stay in our lovely Cusco house in a beautiful double room with an outstanding view across the city & valley. The sun streams into your room with windows reaching across 2 walls. We are located in the popular San Blas area, close to the centre.

The Space

Our spacious double room is furnished and overlooks the city of Cusco and the valley beyond. In a quiet residential area close to the city centre, and within walking distance of all Cusco´s major archaeological sites, Casa Mirador is the perfect place to stay.

This is a quiet but social house, with 7 rooms and a great mix of people from all over the world: Europe, America, Peru, Australia, Japan, etc... Some work here, some are just passing through. But together we keep the place nice for all of us and it´s a friendly place. If you are looking for a home for your stay in Cusco then this is the place for you. If you prefer to be waited on hand & foot in a formal environment, then please try the Monestario Hotel!

Twin bed can sometimes be added to double-bedded rooms, please ask if required.

Interaction with Guests

We can provide local information and help with your stay in the area. If you would like, we can sometimes show you some of the key areas in the town.
You can choose how much you want to socialise with the other people who live here. We sometimes go out together and there are 3 common areas, the living room, the veranda and the kitchen. We usually find that people who like socialising meet together, but if you prefer your stay to be a bit quieter, then you can retire to your room. The choice is yours.

The Neighborhood

The property is located in a quiet & safe residential area with small shops & huge Inka stone and garden where people sit and relax. There is private security patrolling the area at night and it is one of the better areas of the city. There is very little traffic here so there are no honking horns and the air is fresh. But you are close enough to walk to all the major places of the city.
San Blas market 3 mins walk.
San Blas square 5 mins walk.
Plaza de Armas 10 mins walk.
Sachsayhuman 20 mins walk.
Transport to Pisac & Sacred Valley 10 mins walk.
Bus to airport 5 mins walk.
Taxi from bus station or airport around 4-10 soles, depending on how good your haggling is!!

Getting around

Please note:
Cusco is built in a valley between 2 mountain ranges. Most residential areas are up from the centre, as this house is. We usually walk to & from the town, but when necessary, taxis can be hailed to bring you home. From the road there are some steps up to the door so if you have mobility questions, please ask.

  • A very different experience from the party hostel scene-This room was quiet, private and comfortable with a beautiful view. The trek up from the plaza may leave you panting, but if what you desire is a place apart, this room is worth the hike.

About
Hi we are a friendly international house, with people from the UK, Norway, Luxembourg, USA, Japan, Puerto Rico, Australia, etc. My husband and I came from Britain and fell in love with Cusco. We wanted to rent a house and stay here, and when we saw this one we knew that it was the one for us. We spent 2 months bringing up to standard, eg by ripping out the old 'Cusco' electric showers, and fitting brand new and super-hot ones, decorating, and building a kitchen with modern amenities where people who love cooking feel happy. The result is something unique in Cusco, a house where people live because they want a real home, and where people take pride to keep it clean and tidy for us all to use. We have a variety of interests, but one thing is constant: that we love travelling & meeting people. This is a relaxed & sociable house. You are welcome to join us.
