This is our second trip to Cusco and Quinua. Yes, things have changed... no breakfast, some room updates needed. But with covid and the lack of tourism for a few years, I expected it.
Yolanda was available and made every effort for us to enjoy our temporary home.
There were some dog barking issues and that was fixed promptly with a change of room and a rebate of the lower room charges with some extras thrown in.
Quinua hands down beats a hotel room with charm, management, and kindness. Glad we returned. Plus, you can't beat that view.

We stayed in Casa Garcilazo, one of the larger apartments with a mezzanine floor and a small balcony and lots of windows. We loved this hotel. It was one of the best apartments we have ever found in our many travels. It has everything you could want to live, cook, relax and enjoy the setting.
The apartment is beautifully furnished, very well maintained and immaculately clean. The breakfast served in your room is great. The staff are very well trained and genuinely interested in seeing you enjoy your stay.
The view from the windows is spectacular of the old city of Cuzco. We had a very easy walk into the centre of ten minutes, a few more on returning up the hills. There are many different ways into town as you will discover. Excellent restaurants are within a ten minute walk. And we felt perfectly safe walking around at night...we never needed taxis.
We stayed here for seven nights with a break in between to visit Macchu Picchu. We fantasised living in the flat for much longer. It was that nice.
While the price might seem a bit expensive, the quality of the accommodation, the service, the location and the lovely enclosed gardens make it excellent value.

This is a wonderful place. It's everything large hotels aren't, it's got character, space, uniqueness and is located in a wonderful area. The staff are focussed, polite, attentive and very friendly. There are 5 apartments I think of varying sizes. We stayed in three of them over some return trips. Each one is fitted out quite differently and there is a great deal of care in the furnishings. We had more space here than anywhere else. You get breakfast in your apartment because there is no central area. There are various balconies that look out onto the city but not all rooms do and pricing varies. Round about there are various restaurants and shops in the San Blas area. Because it is in an old area you can't actually drive direct to it and there are a number of steps you have to climb to get onto a walking alleyway (it's very safe) so if you have walking difficulties or are very challenged, you should check with the hotel about how you would access it. It's about 70m away from where a car can drop you off

We booked an apartment for 3 persons with Quinua Villa. After the arrival we noticed a strong smell of gas in our apartment. We reported it to the reception, they said it will disappear in 20 minutes. Half an hour later the smell intensified when we started to use the shower. There was clearly a gas leak in the installation. We reported it again to the reception. Now their solution was to... stop using warm water. Fine.

It was already late in the evening so we decided to stay in the hotel and to close the gas heating to avoid the poisoning, although there was 0 grades celsius outside. We said we will stay with the electric heater overnight. So far so good.

Half an hour later the hotel manager arrived. She came to us and demanded to give the electric heater back because... other guests need it. She was rude and arrogant and said that if we don't like their gas heating, we can go. Which in this situation we obviously did.

To add insult to injury, the hotel manager reported a "no-show" to booking.com and wanted to charge us for the night.

We really enjoyed this lovely boutique hotel/B&B in the hills of Cuzco. Very high quality everything, from the bed and linens/towels to the superb breakfasts. But what impressed us the most were the staff. The Italian owner, Christian, genuinely cares about his guests as well as his staff and took every opportunity to help, chat or provide advice as needed. We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed this little oasis.

My husband, adult daughter and I enjoyed our two night stay here after visiting Machu Picchu. What a charming, serviced apartment hotel located in the picturesque and uphill, warren-like district of San Blas, full of restaurants, bars and tourist accommodations. Each of the five studios/apartments in this quiet hotel is comfortably and thoughtfully decorated with artistical and artisan touches evocative of Cusco Incan past.

We stayed in the Pakarina Wasi apartment (#1) located on the lower level, where one wall of the apartment is an Incan terrace wall. This clean apartment is exactly as pictured as on its website. The staff was able to put an extra bed for my daughter in the bedroom. The apartments on the upper levels provide panoramic view of Cusco, but I could still see rooftops and hilltops from the kitchen window. Having hiked Machu Picchu Mountain the previous days, we all had sore muscles and appreciated avoiding any more stairs. I have stayed in many serviced apartments around the world and the kitchen of this apartment is better furnished than most (blenders, champagne and wine glasses, lots of cooking utensils), which would make a very comfortable extended stay. The bathroom also has a bathtub (only bathtub in our 15 day stay in Peru) as well as a separate shower area. Great, consistent hot water for both the bath and shower. Wifi was the best in our stay in Peru, with a router in our room and not one dropped connection.

Although the apartment was very lovely, the service of the English-speaking staff was truly outstanding. The staff was great at helping us with our luggage as the hotel is located in a pedestrian only street. The staff was also helpful in arranging taxis to various sites as well as making reservations at recommended restaurants. On our first night we were quite sore and tired and the hotel arranged to have take out for us from a local restaurants. The wine from the goodies/minibar basket in our room complemented our dinner.

This hotel served the best breakfast we had in Peru. Breakfast is served in your room at a time of your choosing after 6:15 am. Each day you preorder your next day breakfast with a large choice of cereal, yogurt, eggs, ham, cheese, sausage, bread, juice, fruit salad, coffee and tea. The artisan bread basket is delicious, full of croissants, boule rolls and toast.

The walk down the hill to the Plaza the Armas is about 10 – 15 minutes. On your way through this neighborhood, you will pass Andean women in full colorful traditional dress holding baby alpacas with colorful garlands, hoping to collect tips should you want to take pictures with them and the alpacas.

TIP: Take taxis uphill.

Unless you are used to walking around at 12,000 feet, you will find climbing hills and stairs leave you breathless, regardless of your fitness level at sea level. Taxi from the Plaza del Armas back to the hotel will run you from 3.5 to 10 soles (approx. $1 - $3), depending on the time of day, and take 5-10 minutes as the taxi have to go a roundabout way navigating the series of streets barely one car wide with two way traffic. Just ask the taxi driver to take you to Tadanpata and negotiate the price beforehand. The lower gate of Sacsayhuaman is near the hotel and we were originally planning to walk to the site. However, the lovely girl at the front desk informed us that it would take 40 minutes to walk to the top of Sacsayhuaman. We arranged for a taxi (25 soles or $8) to take us to the top entrance near the site and we were so glad we did. The taxi from Sacsayhuaman to the Plaza de Armas only cost 10 soles or $3. The hotel arranged a taxi transfer to the airport and it cost only 20 soles, about $7.

The only negative about this hotel is that it is not accessible for the handicap. The last 40 meters to the hotel is up a set of stairs and by foot only, and the hotel has no elevators. But it is a minor blip and we would definitely come by to this beautiful hotel should we visit Cusco again.

We knew we were going to have an amazing stay at Quinua!! I travelled with my 2 children - aged 11 and 10 - and my stepbrother to Cuzco in December 2014 and we spend 3 days at Quinua.
San Blas is the best place to be and don't worry about it being high up the hill - coming down to town is easy and going back up you can get a taxi for 4 soles (that is less than £1!)! There are lots to see around there and amazing restaurants!
We cannot be thankful enough to Bernie and Yolanda who handled our reservation and answered millions of questions, made change after change to our itinerary and organised all our trips and sightseeing.
We stayed at Pukara Wasi - the apartment in the top floor with the amazing views! A great choice and I recommend it to anyone. We felt so much at home!
Everybody that we met at Quinua was friendly and professional and would do everything to fulfill each and every request.
Breakfast was plenty and delicious and got set up for you at the table as if you were just at home. Fresh coffee and bread, eggs and ham and cheese, fruits, yogurts, cereal, pancakes, honey!
Yolanda is an amazing host and looked after my family like it was her own. We are so grateful for all the help we had and the great restaurant recommendations. We miss her dearly and our time in Cuzco. We want to visit again and stay longer next time!
Quinua is a gem and worth a visit.

We only had one night here after staying 5 nights in Cusco over the other side of town...really wished we found this place earlier...yes there are stairs and a steep climb but you are in the middle of the gorgeous San Blas area with authentic artist shops and amazing restaurants. The apartment we stayed in, inka wasi was fitted out with the coolest furniture and furnishings. I want to live here!!! Staff were helpful and lovely and breakfast was prompt, overly sufficient and delicious!! Love this place!

We stayed here for 2 nights and definitely the best place we stayed of our 8 nights in Peru. The room was extremely cute, creatively decorated, and comfortable. The staff was amazing...very genuine and friendly. They are so sweet and it seems that they really care. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cuzco...you won't regret staying here! Thanks Quinua staff for making our stay so great!

I spent a total of 4 nights here last month (3 before my trip to Machu Picchu, and one after) and stayed in two different rooms. Really loved this place. The owner & his staff are super friendly and helpful. Included in the rate is a HUMUNGOUS breakfast that they deliver to your room whenever you want it. And it's delicious! Each room is like a mini-apartment so you get a lot of the conveniences of home (both rooms I stayed in had fireplaces - which is great because it gets really cold at night in Cusco). They've done a great job decorating the individual rooms. They look great and are very fun. The hotel is in San Blas, which is a cool area of Cusco, but it's still a very easy walk to the central Plaza. I highly recommend this place. The only thing to note is that it's not directly accessible from the street. You have to climb up a couple of sets of stairs and go down a little alley to reach the place. So if that's going to be a problem for you, this might not be the best place for you. (Although, on that note Cusco as a whole might not be the best place for you - lots of inclines, narrow alleys and stairs.) The only other minor thing is that the free wifi isn't that great. But at least it's free.

Yes, the options for breakfast are a long list that you can pick and choose from. The fruit they served was outstanding. You may have to ask if the pancakes are made with milk though.
