Terra Andina Hotel
Travel Blogs from Cusco
The day started early as usual with a quick trip to the very lavish breakfast buffet. Wish I had more time to try all the dishes but Ron was there, waiting to take me to the airport. No problem getting onto the small plane and flying over the Andes. Some great photos out of the plane window. I couldn't believe how big Cuzco was, over 400,000 …
Vi dro fra hotellet i Lima tidlig i dag kl 0700 for å ta flyet til Cuzco. Det var en fantastisk flytur, vi fløy så og si rett over fjelltoppene. Det var som å fly rett over bakken.. Det var et utrolig og spektakulært skue. På flyplassen ble vi tatt i mot av en representant fra hotellet. Skjønner nå hvordan de kongelige har det. Han visste ikke hva …
The short story: we made it through the Inca Trail. We have been up for almost 24 hours now and are enjoying wonderful hot showers. The trail was tough and the weather only cooperated for a third of the time. The rest was wet and cold. The views were amazing beyond belief and our legs are looking forward to as little incline or decline as we can …
Time for bed. Getting up at 4:45am tomorrow to start our hike. Out of contact for a few days but awesome experiences and photos ahead. Pray for nice weather for us!
Today we walked to one of the neaby Inca ruins Sacsayhuaman (pronounced sexy woman). It was a very impressive demonstration of Incan engineering in how they fit these massive stones together just perfectly. We had a good afternoon at the site including wowing other tourists with our human spelling of Cusco Peru (great thing there were 9 of us!!). …

Historical Traveler Reviews Terra Andina Hotel Cusco
We overpaid for this hotel given it was off peak season (Dec - Feb). On arriving at the airport this hotel was being advertised for 35% off and only 50 bucks a night - this would be more in line with what should be paid for this hotel. It is a few blocks from all the action in the mainsquare and not a very nice walk late at night. The staff are friendly but pretty useless. The standard roome are comfortable but overlook the courtyard where breckfast is served from 5am. The surperior rooms are nice however the hotel is reluctant to provide any upgrades even if it is half empty!
I stayed at the Terra Andina Hotel for close to two weeks. Being as how this was my first trip to Peru, I, just as many people had a lot of questions about the surrounding area. All of the people working at the hotel went well out of their way to explain customs, and traditions to me so that I would feel at home. They even went so far as to recomend places of interest for me to see. The hotel is located very close to the main plaza, which is full of interesting and culturally magnificent places.
Plutôt bien situé, en tout cas à 4 minutes à pied de la gare pour Machu Pichu, et 1/4 d'h de la place des Armes..
I stayed at this hotel for four nights at the end of November and it was really excellent.
My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights at the Terra Andina while visiting Cusco and Machu Picchu. The room we got the first night was not bad but had two single beds and no towels in bathroom. We asked for a better room upon our return from Machu Picchu. The management was very friendly and cooperative and sure enough, we had a great room for the last two nights of our stay. The room was large with a king-size bed. It was located off the street so it was very quiet. The staff was very helpful and quickly attended to any needs we had. The breakfast was good and the had a constant supply of coca tea. The first 30 minutes on the internet was free - a plus when you are checking your Fantasy Football team results. The hotel is located on a narrow street about a 15-minute walk to the Plaza de Armas. The on which the hotel is located is a little dark but you quickly get to the main street into the center of town where it is well lit with a lot of people. Generally felt quite safe walking around during the day and night. There are closer places to stay but this hotel was quite good.
Excellent Stay at Terra Andina
The Terra Andina is a Colonial Mansion in the Historic District of Cusco. Wonderful staff, extremely helpful and attentive. Quiet location so easy to sleep at night, centrally located as well. Large, clean rooms. Hotel has a great bar and serves breakfast (comp) lunch and dinner. I ate in the hotel 2 nights and food excellent, good variety.
Hotel location easy to walk to city center and cathedral, good shopping minutes away.
I want to thank you for taking the time to write your review for Trip Advisor Website.
Thanks to your comments we will be placing non-smoking signs at the lounge tables, we will assign a smoking area at the "Speak Easy Corner" bar
We had a nice stay here at the hotel about a year ago. The staff was really welcoming and helpful, and speaking a few words of Spanish will help you get your point across.
If you need a hotel in Cusco, Peru
Iwas thourghly impressed with the Manager and staff personell at the Terra Andina
Everyone was pleasant and catered well to our needs
There was always smiles while preforming requested task even with my inability to communicate in Espanol
I highly recommend the Terra Andina and if there is ever an opportunity for me tomake a return trip to Cusco I hope they have an open reservation, but with the quality of service that may be a problem
I have visited Cusco at least eight times over the last 26 years. I am obviously fascinated with Cusco and Machu Pichu. I have stayed in several different hotels during my visits and I must state unequivocally that Terra Andina Hotel had by far the best accommodations I have have ever had in Peru. I have traveled a fare amount in my life and have stayed in the best 5 star hotels as far away as china. I am not sure of the rating of Terra Andina I would give it a 5. The rooms were immaculate with all of the amenities one would ever need. The decor was fascinating, inviting and a catalyst to transcend cultures. Most of all I was always treated with courtesy and respect and constantly greeted with a smile. I really feel I lack the literary skills to fully describe my extremely pleasant experience at Terra Andina Hotel. I will never stay at any other Hotel when visiting Cusco.
Cute place /great staff
