Chakana House is a charming hostel set in a beautiful colonial house located 3 minutes from the Plaza de Armas, in the old part of town. It is a pleasant and safe place for independent travelers to enjoy a true Peruvian environment in one of the most historic places in Peru.
Bounced around a bit during my time in cusco but I spent one night at Chakana and really had a great experience. The family who runs it were very kind and attentive and called me am early cab when I had to leave. They also have hostal style group rooms if you are traveling with friends could be a nice option. Very near to plaza de armas. Gracias!!
As expected. Clean, good location, not too loud. Wi-Fi not so good. Breakfast OK.
The stay at Chakana House B&B was alright.
- friendly stuff
- great location
- nice room decor
- cold room & shower
- not all stuff members were English speaking
in a nutshell it's good value for money, but don't expect too much, it's a B&B, not a 5 star hotel.
It was my hearty travel buddy's birthday and our first day in Cuzco to celebrate. Don't forget your earplugs (a pump runs all night) outside room 103.
After watching my travel partner shrivel up in the cold water shower, with the no soap and cold water I decided to pass.
We took a sip of the instant coffee and tried a bite of yesterday's cracker and chose to grab a snack and Capuchino later.
We were bit annoyed when the guy at the front desk wouldn't let us leave. Our taxi was waiting and we were pressed for time to meet our Peru rail train to Macchu Picchu, we didn't know if we would make the last train due to his delay. He wanted to charge us a second time for the room when I already paid via airbnb. Make sure to put the second charge on the same credit card to make it easier to dispute if the need arises.
Estuvimos una semana en Chakana House y fue una buena decisión, el personal es muy amable y las instalaciones son cómodas y acogedoras. Su ubicación, muy cerca al centro histórico de Cusco, le da una gran ventaja al viajero que quiera disfrutar de la ciudad. Lo recomiendo.
Sono stato benissimo, le stanze ok e se manca qualcosa si fanno in quattro per rimediare
Nos recibieron super bien, la estadía fue confortable.
La gente en general estaba pendiente de nuestras necesidades.
Un lindo recuerdo fueron esos te ricos que nos dieron para el dolor de panza jaja.
Muy recomendable y como dato extra pudimos dejar los bolsos por 4 días mientras hacíamos el camino del inca
Gracias gente de chakana house!!!
