The Space

If you like the privacy and you want to enjoy the culture and natural environment of the Cusco, we offer you per days or weeks our two apartments located in the historical quarter of San Blas. We are proud to have one of the most beautiful gardens in Cusco.

Located in the street Tandapata, the house is very close to workshops of famous painters and craftsmen, varied restaurants and pubs and to only 15m walking of the Cusco's main square.

Q'ente apartment is completly equipped for an independent stay. It has a bedroom, kitchenette and a bathroom . You will have free access to free Internet, electric heater and bed's down comforter. The apartment located in the first floor of a traditional house with walls of adobe and roof of tiles, with a green and flowery garden.

Q'ente in Quechuan means hummingbird, we choose this name because the garden of the house is often visited by these magic birds. The apartment has two different spaces: the bedroom and the kitchen-dining room. The bedroom has a double bed equipped with a down conforter, for the cold Cusquenian nights. It is possible to have a extra single-bed (extra 15USD). Finally the apartment also is provided with a comfortable equipped bath to take a hot shower to start the day.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Beautiful place, beautiful location and beautiful people! Everyone (from the maintenance man to the cleaning lady to the owner) was so kind and helpful. Heck, everyone in the town of Cusco is so warm and kind. When we arrived, there was a list of great cafés, restaurants and bars as well as a helpful map with grocery stores and pharmacies marked. The place is located a few blocks from Plaza de Armas and the view of the city is great from the apartment. Right down the street there are a few pizza places and a coffee shop. The man and woman who work at the call center/cafe are adorable and very helpful. The veggie place, Prasada, is terrific and a must try. We honestly didn't have a bad meal in Cusco. We planned our own trip to Machu Picchu and it worked out really well. It also saved us money doing it ourselves rather than with a tour company. Once you understand the tickets necessary and the bus/train schedule the rest is rather simple. Anyways, if you are looking for a quaint, cozy and safe place to stay, Nawin is it!

  • Our stay was absolutely perfect. Located in an adorable part of town it's safe and cozy. Nawin's parents helped us book a taxi and with local recommendations. I'd highly recommend this great place!

  • A beautiful place from the moment the door is opened to you. High above the Plaza de Armas, the home is in a great location, close to everything but far from the noise of it all. Oscar and Irene are very warm hearted and happy were happy to share their Cusco with my us. We stayed over Christmas and New Years and they brought us some local tradition for each event. VERY SWEET! You are lucky to stay in a place so nice and so well managed. I'm jealous you are going to stay there because we loved it!

  • The best AirBNB experience I've ever had. Hands down. Illa was incredibly accommodating, her hospitality extended right down to the beautiful design of the local map + restaurant suggestions.

    The location is picture perfect, and with the (previously mentioned) maps getting about town is super convenient.

    The space is an experience in itself. The private garden is a wonderful oasis to have your tea after a long day exploring the sites.
    The bed was super comfortable, and the entire space is done quite beautifully.

    Thank you Illa for making our trip incredible, I can't recommend this AIrBNB host enough!

  • We loved staying here and it's in the best neighborhood in San Blas, Cusco. It really felt like a great escape, with the lovely garden to sit in and enjoy coca tea, the beautiful living quarters and comfy bed, spacious bathroom and kitchen, overall it was so wonderful! We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Thank you, Illa!

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay here during our honeymoon in Peru. Illa and her brother were incredibly helpful with everything from the moment we booked. Definitely take all of her advice on the altitude and enjoy the coca tea upon arrival. The apartment is spacious and lovely and was the ideal spot for us. The garden within the home was quiet and relaxing. The location is absolutely perfect. San Blas is by far our favorite area and we were lucky to be located in such a convenient location. All of Illa's recommendations on restaurants were excellent. We had Juan Carlos transport us to and from the airport & train station as well as take us on several Sacred Valley Day Tours that were fairly priced, well guided and incredibly fun. We had initially only planned on staying 5 nights but extended our stay because we loved it so much! We highly recommend the Nawin Cusco Qente Apartment.

  • Nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour! Les lieux étaient très propres, notre hôte avait le souci du détail pour nous accommoder (ex.: sachets de shampooing, savon disponible, cartes touristiques et conseils de restos, prêt de téléphone portable etc.). La décoration était chaleureuse et l'endroit très sécuritaire. Le quartier est agréable, un peu plus à l'écart de la horde de touristes mais très près des lieux principaux dans la ville. Notre hôte était facile à joindre et nous avons grandement apprécié sa disponibilité et son désir de rendre notre séjour facile et agréable. Le seul point négatif a été la sieste plus difficile en après-midi en raison des propriétaires qui habitent à l'étage au-dessus (bruit de pas). C'est un détail inutile si vous ne faites pas de sieste durant le jour! Finalement, nous recommandons fortement le lieu.

  • This apartment is a Super Cute Home Away from Home! A friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. Illa was great and very responsive. Ilene (her mother that lives upstairs) was sweet and helpful - take her advice regarding the altitude and you should be just fine. The neighborhood, San Blas is a nice break from being downtown and there are plenty of restaurants and shops within a 3 to 5 minute walk (downhill). Having the cell phone to call Juan Carlos is WONDERFUL! Being able to call a driver that speaks English on a whim to take you around is PRICELESS (only wish I had this kind of service when I was in Lima but instead had to haggle in Spanglish...lol). The only reason I didn't give 5 stars to this apartment is because if you stay here you have to navigate a hill going to/from downtown Cusco. This wasn't a big deal for us and honestly there are shops and restaurants along the way if you need to take a quick breather (bare in mind walking around anywhere in Cusco's altitude at first seems like you have ran for miles). As another reviewer added this was good practice for hiking or wandering around Manchu Picchu for hours. No hesitations or reservations in staying here again - should I ever return to Cusco. Oh yeah, definitely take advantage of the restaurant suggestions that are provided (each one that we tried was Delish).
