          Quiet hotel close to city bustle ...

          The pretty courtyard is a delight, surrounded by rooms on two floors. Ours was spacious and comfortable and the staff all helpful and friendly. Only a short walk to the Plaza de Armas and all its attractions. All proceeds from the hotel go to a foundation helping neglected children.

          Beautiful Hotel Supporting an Important Foundation

          Really enjoyed my stay here. A beautiful courtyard, simple decorated comfortable rooms and a fabulous restaurant where I enjoyed dinner as well as delicious breakfasts. One of three hotels whose owner runs a foundation feeding and educating under privileged children in Cusco. Proceeds from the hotel help fund this foundation, and guests can take a tour of the kitchen and facilities for the children. A beautiful hotel close to the main square supporting a good cause.

          The best hot showers in all of Peru

          The best place to stay in Cusco, not only because all the profits go to their long term projects for undernourished and neglected Peruvian kids. It is also a very comfortable, pretty, safe hotel with a beautiful patio and nicely decorated rooms. The cafe is convenient for drinks and snacks. And another major plus in the chilly mountains of Peru: Hotel Niños has hot showers that are actually strong and hot! (Unlike most Peruvian hotels who offer lukewarm trickles at best.)

          Historical Traveler Reviews Ninos Hotel Cusco

          Charming Spanish Mansion with Good Heart


          Los Ninos is founded by a Dutch woman to help the kids you'll see begging on the streets of Cusco. The hotel looks like an amazing Colonial mansion. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. There's a cafe with great pancakes with honey and a book swap. The rooms are simple, safe and quirkily gorgeous. They have things like street balconies, wooden beams and stone walls, but plenty of hot water and even laundry service. Odd minature door lets you into the compound. You can google the hotel and email them and they do eventually respond and take reservations. We felt really lucky to have stayed there.

          Great place


          Los Ninos is a charming place not far from the centre of Cusco. The budget room I had was pretty tight as you'd expect and faced inwards to the walkway surrounding the inner courtyard. I also stayed in a slightly larger one with a bath which faced onto the street. Both were very well maintained and exceptional value.

          A nice feature of this (and many other places in this region) is the inner courtyard which is a good place to hang out and meet other travellers. It is a shortish walk to the main square but feels longer coming back because of the sloping streets - not a problem normally but you feel it if you haven't adjusted to the altitude. No worry - there are inexpensive minicabs zipping around the city all day and night.

          Staff were really friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

          Ninos is good


          I agree with the other comments. We stayed at Ninos 2 and found it clean, comfortable, and friendly. We also walked back and forth--about 10 minutes to the plaza. The only caution I'd give is that the rooms facing the children's cafeteria can be a bit noisy.



          We stayed in Los Ninos Dos for three nights -- one night in Janeth and two nights in Laura. The rooms were spotlessly clean and sparsely but beautifully decorated. The hot water was instant and scalding -- 24 hours a day. They will do your laundry and press it for about US$3.00 per kilo. It came back in 8 hours beautifully done. No meals are included but breakfast can be purchased for about US$3.00 per person. They served homemade bread, homemade blueberry jelly, fresh squeezed organge juice, fresh fruit, yogurt (fabulous) with fruit and granola with tea or coffee. They staff was very helpful -- reconfirmed our flights etc. Although, they said we should take a taxi back and forth to the center of town -- Plaza de Armas -- cost US$1.00 -- we always walked there and eventually walked back. We never had any problems. The hotel is also very secure and we left all our belongings -- expensive cameras -- in the room occassionally with no problems. The story of the hotel founding is so heartwarming you almost feel guilty only paying $30.00 per night for a double room. Worth every cent and more.

          Excellent, warm place with cozy fireplace


          We had such great service in this warm little hotel. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place.

          Excellent Service and Hotel


          We have just come back from peru, Stayed at Los Ninos for a total of 3 nights. Great hotel, the hotel staff are amazing, really nice and friendly. The rooms are basic but clean and comfy. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Any addtional info, email me at

          We couldn't have asked for more!


          We just came back from our Peru trip, where we spent three nights in Cuzco and at Los Niņos Hotel I.

          We researched quite a few hotels before choosing Los Niņos, and we were very pleased with our choice; the rooms are very clean, there is plenty of hot water, the staff is incredibly nice and helpful, and the breakfasts (coffee/tea, bread, butter, home-made marmalade, yogurt with muesli, scrambled eggs, fruit salad, and freshly squeezed orange juice) was the highlight of each morning!

          Their prices are very low considering their standard and compared to other hotels in Cuzco; we paid only $34 for a double room. Breakfast is not included but the price of $3 cannot be beaten!!

          A highly recommended hotel, but since they only have 20 rooms, be sure to contact them early in advance!

          For the Children


          We stayed two separate nights at Los Niņos I - a very friendly, welcoming place, although we were told it was in a bad part of town (we got taxis so we didn't walk around there). There is a second Los Niņos about a block away.

          The rooms we had were "Oscar" upstairs and "Ramon" downstairs (the rooms are named after the local kids who have been adopted by the owners -see web site at ninoshotel for details). Both were small but clean, basic accommodations - hot water at both sink and shower, private toilet and shower (shared are available). No hand towels or washcloths, but towels and soap (and toilet paper) were provided.

          Breakfast isn't included, but there's a little cafe on site, where you can get breakfast, sandwiches, coca tea, etc. at very reasonable prices (we paid $10 total for dinner and breakfast). The coca tea was free at first, then they charged 2 soles after the first morning.

          All in all I would recommend it - we paid $34 a night and were pleased. The hotel is very secure - you must ring a bell for them to open the door to get inside. A peaceful courtyard with a fountain is the centerpiece of the interior, open to the sky above. The rooms are right off the courtyard, on two levels. The windows and doors of the room can open fully to the air, or be either completely locked and closed, or locked but open for light. The rooms have wooden floors, and extra blankets on the bed for cold nights.

          Los Niņos will store luggage for you if you're heading to Machu Picchu, free of charge. We locked our suitcase that we left but this was probably unnecessary.

          Loved it..


          This quaint hotel is very clean, comfortable and makes you leave with a smile on your face knowing you did something good for the street children of Cusco. Proceeds from guests help fund a "meals for kids" program...Room was comfy and decorated with children's artwork....Their breakfast was great, served in a sunny courtyard. Highly recommend.

          A wonderful place to stay at!


          We stayed at the hotel Los Ninos after a friend of ours recommended it. We weren't disappointed. The rooms are simple but provide everything that you would want to have: a good bed with clean sheets and a bathroom with a hot shower. The hotel itself is great: there is an inside court where you can sit next to a fountain and read or have breakfast. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, - 3 min away from the main square. The hotel is run by a Dutch couple who uses the money that they earn with the hotel to provide shelter + food + medical help to kids who would otherwise be living on the streets. Definitely a great place to stay at!

          We came by taxi stopping at the church at Chinchero, which had a beautifully painted wooden ceiling and murals. It has a lively market on a Sunday and even had a few stalls when we visited as well as what we thought might be our last view of snowy peaks.
