  • Carlos was a terrific host that helped make our stay in Cusco especially memorable. Right after we landed, he helped us arrange for tours in the afternoon and make reservations at restaurants. His house is centrally located just blocks away from the city center.

  • Carlos was a great source of information about Cusco and organized a city tour and a Sacred Valley tour for me. We had delightful conversations over breakfast and mate de coca. I stayed here twice and left my luggage while on the Matchu Pichu trail. I would definitely recommend staying here.
    The beautiful old home is in a great location, and has many charming features.
    I loved the quad motorbike tour I booked through Peru moto tours next door and the little cafe Morena just a block a way, they have awesome sandwiches!
    I went on the Inca jungle trek, booked through Loki hostel and would totally recommend it to anyone wanting a real adventure tour, with biking, hiking, river rafting, zip line and thermal baths for a totally reasonable price and proper beds and toilets and good food.

  • The experience in Carlos house was amazing! He provided lots of good recommendations to travel around the area, such as the sacred valley and city tour. They are super friendly, nice and helpful. Another great thing staying at Carlos is you can meet tourists around the world to share experience. The bread and jam at breakfast are great also! I will recommend them to any of my friend that travel to Lima and Cuzco.

  • Nice old house. Carlos provided us with lot's of useful information about location of local attractions and things like that, arranged for our city tour and taxis. Thanks! Rooms could be a bit cold at night, but there were multiple blankets provided.

  • Carlos Carlos! This guy is great, don't let his crazy hair in the morning fool you, he's not only hilarious but he is incredibly knowledgeable about the world and of course Cusco. He was there every evening I came back and every early morning he made a great breakfast, including coca tea and fresh juice, before I went on my adventures. He was always making sure I had what I needed. The location is perfect, very very safe, and close to all the main sites. The house/apartment itself is classic-style, but still well-maintained.

  • Carlos was very helpful in providing advice and making travel and sightseeing arrangements during our stay in Cusco. The breakfast was also a welcome part of our stay. The house is filled with character however a bit chilly at times as there are no heating units in the rooms.

  • Carlos was an exceptional host. He gave me tons of advice on places to go, things to see, where to eat, etc. He even gave me precise directions on using local transportation to visit Pikillakta, Rumicolca, and Tipon on my own when I wasn't able to join an actual tour.

    He was extremely welcoming, spending time with his guests over breakfast, whipping up batches of pisco sours and just being personable. I'd stay at Casa Carlos again without hesitation.

  • Carlos was a great host and his place is in a great location. Safe (next to the police station), and convenient to the hub of Cusco, Plaza de Armas. The bathroom and rooms are very clean, and Carlos is so welcoming. He spent time giving us tips on what to see, and even bought some snacks and treats for us on New Years Eve.

    I'd highly recommend his stay for anyone looking for a nice, clean place to stay in Cusco.

  • I really enjoyed my stay with Carlos. It was my first time in Cusco and he not only helped me get the right travel agent (and saved me money on my Inca trail trip) but he got involved whenever there was a problem. One of the guests had a problem with their agent and he took it upon himself to ensure she got a refund.

    He made great recommendations of things to do and see and even took me to see some ruins which were not part of the guided tours. Not to mention eating kui (guinea pig- delicious)! Carlos is more than just a host. He is a friend (who makes great pisco sours too if you're lucky to watch him in action:-)

    Great location too, right next to the Tourist Police, safe and quiet neighbourhood which is only a 5 minute walk from Plaza de Almas. Travel agents, internet cafes, restaurants, international ATMs, supermarkets etc are all close by.

    I highly recommend staying at Casa Carlos!
