    This was a stylish hotel that costs that has american prices - not Peruvian. Friendly staff, helpful staff, and delicious breakfasts. Very accommodating as they work closely with SAS travel. Very comfortable beds, and warm rooms! def recommend if youre too lazy to find a cheaper place.

    Its a beautiful hotel, its like a small Fortress. I would definitely stay there again. The personnel is very friendly, they had the Coca tea waiting for me when I got there. I'm only giving it 4 stars because there was no internet service in my room and I had to sit out in the cold to use my computer.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Los Marqueses Cusco

    Los Marqueses- Comfy haven

    from

    Clean rooms, warm staff, comfortable beds. One computer with internet for use by guests. Tea and water at a self-serve station in the courtyard. Like others mention, you must ask for a deluxe room with a skylight or your room will be very dark and also you will likely hear noise from people in rooms above you. As this is an old colonial mansion made into a hotel, the bathrooms can seem like a bit of an afterthought. Bathroom fixtures were fresh and of good quality. The ceilings are very high in the rooms but not in the bathrooms. High ceilings made it hard for a single heater to warm up the rooms (probably only a problem if you are feeling weak and a bit sick from the altitude). The biggest drawback for us (we have 2 young boys) was the creaky wooden floors both inside and out of the rooms. It's a strain to be always concerned about noise as you walk around. Also you can hear creaking every time someone walks past your door. The breakfast buffet was very good - fresh fruit platters, juices, cereals, breads, yogurt, etc and also eggs and crepes cooked to order. In Sept. 2006 we paid $80 USD for a double w/ skylight and $105 for a triple w/ skylight.

    Loved it - but make sure you get a window or sky light.

    from

    My mother and I stayed a few nights in May of 2006. We loved the building and character of the hostal....the furniture and decorating just delightful. The breakfat was substantial and delicious and the staff helpful. The location was terrific...only a few minutes walk to the centre of Cusco. One complaint that we have - we had no window or skylight in our room - so hence - it was very closed in. Make sure you request it when reserving. Overall we thought the Marqueses was wonderful value for money - we paid $39 USD per night including breakfast and booked through SAS travel. Great value and highly recommend - with a window. (Maybe you pay more for a window?)

    Great location

    from

    We stayed at the Los Marquesas in May 2006 and were quite satisfied with the facilities. The location is great, 2 blocks off Plaza de Armas so it was quiet, but in a very safe neighborhood. There was always a doorman so no strangers got in. The breakfasts were good, I wish they had fresh brewed coffee but we got instant. The employees were wonderful, always knew our names. Everything was very clean. Only big problems were plumbing issues. Our first room had water pour out of the wall next to the shower every time we turned the water on. They told us to be sure we don't cover the floor drain so it could drain out! Very uncomfortable standing in puddles though. Second room was perfect. Third room had a water seepage issue from the wall into the main room but just a little puddle this time. There were no exterior windows in any of our three rooms. The courtyards are beautiful, the buildings are very old and interesting. They did have 24 hour internet access on an antique computer. Also coca tea and hot water available at all hours.

    Very nice hostal

    from

    THe staff was very nice. The location could not have been better. Our rooms were in the back part of this old "estate" . If I were to go back, I would request a room in the front part. It was really noisy early in the morning with the staff getting breakfast ready. I think the back rooms were the "staff" rooms for this old mansion. There was free internet and a big decanter of purified water available for the guests to "fill up" emply water bottles. The courtyard was very pretty and peaceful. I felt totally safe there. IT was clean, but our rooms had poor lighting (there was a funky little trap door type wiindow only) They supplied us with a portable heater and hair dryer and a TV with English channels. there was a nice buffet breakfast and you could order eggs made to order as well. the price included transportation to and from the airport. overall I think it was a good value... met my requirements of 1.) safe 2.) clean 3.) convenient location 4.) reasonable price

    Central, clean and great breakfast

    from

    We stayed in the Marqueses after completing the Inca Trail with SAS Travel who, I believe, own the hotel. Although hotel / hostal prices are more expensive in Cusco than elsewhere in Peru, the Marqueses is well worth the USD 40 that it cost us to stay there.

    Centrally located, you are a minute from the Plaza de Armas, and the property is secured in the evening by a heavy wooden door through which the owner buzzes you into the main reception area.

    The hotel itself is situated around a lovely open courtyard with wooden balcony surrounding it above, and the rooms continue the colonial theme. Large wooden furniture, high beds and spotlessly clean, this is a real find. The bathroom looked to be brand new and beautifully tiled - again it was spotless and just what we needed after 4 days hard trekking! Cable TV is also provided in the rooms, and although we had a double room, triples are also available.

    Breakfast was fantastic, and the hotel will even provide this from 5am onwards at special request if required.

    All in all, a great find and highly recommend.

    Excellent choice.

    from

    We are use to staying at more expensive hotels but our tour company coonvinced us to try this recently renovated hotel. We were not disappointed. The fellow guests were all interesting and not trekker types (used to be one) but people from many countrys. The breakfast is good and atmosphere pleasant. The staff is freindly and attentive. We ended up staying 6 nights and never had a complaint. 6 days in town and I could only find a few Hotels that I would consider but cost was 8 times this. Even if you can afford Montasario give this place a try also. For the price differnce you cna donate too many needy local charities.

    Absolutely beautiful place

    from

    Stayed at the hotel Marqueses which was just remodeled in 2004. Absolutely beautiful place and only two blocks from the main square. Reminded me of a "mini" version of the Hotel Monasterio, which we visited one day and had lunch. The staff were all very friendly and the place felt very safe and was a quiet retreat from the noisy streets. We paid $60 a night for a super clean utterly charming and spacious room with two queen beds. They also served coco tea upon check in and offered a nice complimentary breakfast. If you stay at this place you will not be disappointed. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Also, we booked our tour of the Inca Trail through SAS Travel and they were great as well.

    Good place for the money

    from

    I stayed at this hotel for about 5 days I think back in 2002.

    There are many positives about this place:

    1) location - so easy to walk to the Plaza de Armas

    2) environment - very nice old spanish colonial home, every one is different, size, furnishings. The bathrooms were modern.

    (their towels weren't the greatest)

    3) I felt that my stuff was safe in my room.

    4) family was pleasant enough and helpful

    5) the breakfast room is decorated in antiques, what a nice to have have a morning meal, also a good time to talk with fellow travelers.

    6) no need to let the family make your travel arrangements, they will try!

    A great company to use by the way is SAS travel, I used them for all my tours, very experienced, professional and good. I highly recommend using this company for all your needs while in Cusco.

    I would definitely recommend this place, also the price was reasonable, I did have to bargain a bit since I was staying there longer, I think I paid a different price each day, maybe from $16 to $20/night. A good deal I think for U.S. folks

    Highly recommend Los Marqueses

    from

    Los Marqueses was recently renovated a few months ago and I would say that this place is much better than most hotels in Cusco for the price you pay. I paid ~ $60 for a double room with a clean private bathroom with bathtub. A bath was exactly what i craved after doing the inca trail.

    The staff at Los Marqueses are also extremely helpful and pleasant. They took care of my sister and I when we got sick from altitude sickness. They made our stay in Peru very enjoyable.

    Changing our tour length last minute was a very good move on our part.

Wanting only to lay in bed to avoid any weight on our feet we were unable to do that because we made plans with Jose and …

It was a magnificent site. Many of the group continued hiking up to the sun gate to watch the sunrise, but I was quite content to stay down below and get a closer view. I certainly wasn't disappointed when the sun finally appeared over the mountains surrounding the site. It was ...

It was then the last supper with the boys so we went to a Chinese just across the road and headed to bed, knackered from our inca trail and big night ...
