About this listing
SAYA WASI offers you the pleasure of staying in cozy B&B of two spacious 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. This place is the meeting point for artists and locals, close to cafes, galleries, museums and banks. You will comfortably walk in the pedestrian streets or stay at home to laze off in the garden and admire the view of the incredible historical center of the city.
All our guests have access to the terrace.

Denis was great. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. He accommodated some last minute printing requests that make a big difference in our travels. Everything was as described and very close to the town center.
I can't say enough good things about Denis' and Hernan's AirBnb! The listing is exactly as described if not better! Myself and two other ladies stayed here and had plenty of room. We were VERY comfortable and the view is amazing! During our entire 10 day trip in Peru, we never slept better than at this place. Every morning a delicious breakfast was prepared and delivered to us with a smile and we got to eat while taking in the beautiful views of Cusco. Denis was very friendly and personable, he was happy to recommend dining for lunch and dinner. He even had a list prepared from the get go. I wish Denis and Hernan had Airbnb's all over the world! :)
Denis is great and his place is SUPER. He allowed us to arrive earlier so we could leave our bags and go get breakfast. Also my girlfriend got sick and he help us out on what to get to help her out. Had a great time!!
We arrived at this space around 10pm. Denis promptly answered the door and gave us a very warm welcome. He explained how everything in the room worked, gave us a map of the area, and gave us a menu so we could select our breakfast.
We loved our room. It really has the BEST view in Cusco!! There are two beds in the room; a very comfortable king sized bed with a down comforter and the other, I believe, a full sized bed - our sleep was incredible! The room is huge and contains two small couches, a breakfast table and chairs, and a sink and two mirrors. The shower is nice and has plenty of hot water. It is cold at night in Cuzco (in August) and most places don't have heating systems so we were thrilled that Denis put a heater in our room that kept us cozy all night and in the morning.
The best part of our stay was the delicious breakfast - simple omelette, scrambled eggs, fruit salad, flaky bread, and fresh fruit juice. Also, my boyfriend injured his knee at Machu Picchu and had a difficult time climbing the stairs that evening. It was too late to go out and find icy hot (or something similar) so Denis brought him his personal bottle of miracle Chinese ointment. We don't know what it was but it worked like magic! Overall, our stay was excellent and we loved Denis' good energy and the places he suggested we visit.
The location is perfect for walking around and experiencing all the great things Cusco has to offer.
We would definitely stay here if we ever make a trip back to Cusco.
Yes Denis made us feel very welcome. He offered amazing restaurants to check out and even made us breakfast in the morning! He was truly wonderful
Increíble lugar, increíble vista de Cusco. Y una atención mezcla de súper profesional y a la vez cálida.
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.
