Staying with Denis was the perfect way to stay in Cusco! He is a gracious host with an amazing place and phenomenal view in a great neighborhood. Not only did he give us maps and perfect restaurant suggestions, but he also called taxis, arranged a great breakfast every morning, and was great to talk with. I can't imagine having a better experience at a different Airbnb or hotel, simply because of how personal and real the experience felt.
Only big con is how many steps it takes to get up to his place, which is really only a difficult problem on the first day of acclimating to the altitude.
The place was great and Denis was there to welcome us and make sure we had everything we needed and suggested a great place for dinner. The room is well furnished, bed was huge and comfortable and had everything we needed. Wonderful view was just the icing on the cake. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
The listing was especially accurate in the title; "Best panorama of Cusco" is absolutely correct! Denis was super nice and incredibly helpful! He gave us lots of good advice on where to eat, how to stay safe, and how to avoid the dreaded high altitude sickness. The room was beautiful and the terrace was even more so! We ate our breakfast (provided) at a little table near our big bedroom window, looking out over the city. The view by day - incredible. The view by night - even more incredible, all lit up! His employee was also very welcoming and very nice to talk with.
Great place, great view and a great host!
The rooms and the facilities were excellent. Tasty breakfast served in the room with one of the best views in Cusco. Dennis was a fantastic host, helping us out with anything we needed and answering all of our silly questions. His list of recommended restaurants and places to drink came in very useful!
Great value for the price and we would 100% recommend that anyone traveling to Cusco to stay here!
it is hard to overemphasize the delightful experience of staying w Deni in his beautifully decorated home in Cuzco. Warm, graceful, amazing vistas, plentiful, healthy, high quality breakfasts (eggs or omelets, fresh squeezed juice, bread, yogurt, granola, fruit salad w unlimited strong coffee, and more).....the room was spacious, private, the showers and amenities perfect...wifi connection was strong....he provided a 4-5 page list of recommended restaurants with personal notes that we used every day....each one was spot on...speaks español, engles y frances.....extremely attentive, personable....breakfast is provided in the room.....hot water heater w tea bags....helpful in every way....we were able to leave our bags w him while trekking in the Andes and he also helped us find another spectacular room upon our return....also for the price, I think compared w standard hotel rooms, you can not find a better place.....highly recommended....
Denise is an awesome host. I stayed 5 nights and the room is perfect. He has many recommendations for Cuzco. The room has a beautiful view of San Blas and centrally located in Cuzco. Breakfast is provided on time. He packed us a lunch bag for Inca Trail and let us leave our luggage while we are hiking the Inca Trail.
I definitely enjoyed my stay at Denise's place and will stay in the future.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
This is one of the nicest bed and breakfasts we've ever stayed in. Beautiful views of Cuzco from both the bedroom and the patio (just like in the photos!). Denis is truly an amazing host. He served breakfast to us in our rooms, he arranged a personalized car tour of the Sacred Valley, and he even made us sandwiches to take on the last day. He is a really genuine, wonderful person, who made our stay really special.
