TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal El Grial Cusco
I chose this place to stay based on price and good user reviews, and I really made the right decision. The place was very charming, and all the staff were so friendly. My room was super clean, and had a private shower. Everything was perfect.
The free breakfast was toast, ham and cheese slices, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and juice.
The hotel is located in San Blas, so it's about a 5 min walk to the Plaza de las Armas. It is on a nice quiet street, and my room was very quiet.
During my stay, several of the staff members went out of their way to help me call the airport and ask about my lost luggage. I speak a little Spanish, but not enough for such a complicated discussion, and they were really great about helping me recover my bag.
I am planning to come back next year and will definitely stay here again!

It was curious to us that so many people knew it had changed venues for the night, but we were not aware even though we bought the tickets the ...
After this minor dilemma, we headed back out to the Plaza de Armas for some people watching and a little haggling - we needed more Peruvian textiles, obviously. We got what we came for and enjoyed watching the mass exodus of school children heading home for the day (they literally came down the hill in waves). We opted for dinner at Bodega 138 again (so unimaginative but it was good - at least they had ...
