comfotable reasonably priced hotel
Hot water needed to be turned up few times. Heating not on in rooms till 5 pm and off at 6 am. Had to request portable heater.
Excellent location near the Plaza. Quiet courtyards, terraces, fountains. Excellent helpful staff. Far less $ that expensive Cusco Hotels that cater to US travelers.
wireless internet was spotty
the politeness and efficiency of the staff, the location of the hotel, the free wi-fi in the rooms, the free use of the business centre, the moderately priced mini-bar,the nice inclusive morning breakfast, and for those in need on the grounds of the high altitude free oxygen at the reception. The rooms were sparkling clean with moderate central heating for when required. This hotel is indeed a little gem
It was conveniently located and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and free wifi was excellent. Staff was very helpful giving information, arranging transportation and even took care of my special laundry request. I would stay there again.
The beds were a little hard.
Nicely designed, quiet, clean, accessable.
Diana and Jesus were the very best part of this hotel. They are both very kind and they try to provide to all the customers the very best welcome as possible. I saw them giving their best all the times to help the customers to have a highly memorable experience at the hotel in a very sweet and caring way. They are both lovely, perfect and they make the difference being the cherry on Rumi Punku hotel. A part from the excellent staff the hotel is fine and comfy, there are very few things missing to be the perfect hotel.
The heating only works from 17:00 local time on and it was not heating the bedroom properly. Anyway I didn't have problems, because there were many nice eiderdown, down comforter and blankets available on my bedroom which made me comfortably warm. The management of the juices during the breakfast were poor, because statistically the orange juice is the most wanted juice and it finished in the jar very fast and they took so long to refill that I was not able to drink it. I think they might took so long to refill due to the fact that they offered many other juices, but if you really love orange juice like me, it might bother you. It would be more logical to investigate which juice is more consumed and provide more amount of it instead of providing many others juice flavors which were not so much appreciated as the orange juice. The bathroom door locks from inside and the most part of the hotels I stayed it doesn'T. It was not a problem to me, but if you travel with kids it is important to know that. A part from these tiny details, the hotel is perfect.
If you want to be close to the Plaza and pay a modest rate for a great little hotel in Cusco, this is the place. The Monestario is a stones throw away for 4x the price and there are nice Casa Andina hotels within a few blocks but this is where the smart travelers stay.
Internet is spotty and inconsistent.
The staff was friendly and very helpful. I felt safe, it was close to many good restaurants and shops, but still remained quiet and secure
It was so pretty! the pictures really don't do it justice. Also, it was quiet and comfortable and I felt safe. Staff was always professional and helpful in a serious, understated way, which I liked. Breakfast every morning was fabulous!
As a family, we loved the location and quiet surroundings. It was close walking distance to the main square for everything. We also loved the open courtyard and view of the city from the rooftop. Laundry service was a bargain and much appreciated. The staff were helpful and the breakfast very nice. We had a few issues with our 3rd floor bathroom - toilet and long waits for hot water - but they were attended to quickly by staff and our boys room on the 2nd floor was fine. Very clean and comfortable! Oh- and they do accept credit card payment now (4/11).
Excellent staff, always willing to assist with any need. Great location near the Plaza (downtown Cusco). Beautiful courtyard setting. Free internet (both wireless and dedicated computer/business room). Breakfast was delicious with cooked to order eggs or omelets, cereals, breads, jams, ham, sausage or bacon. A perfect place to start/end your tour of Peru and/or Machu Picchu. The hotel will keep your luggage for you while you travel to Machu Picchu. The hotel provides airport pickup/drop off with prior coordination.
Hotel hallways can be noisy at times simply due to the tile floors resonating the sound of guests talking or rolling their luggage.
The location was great within walking distance to the Plaza and to San Blas. The courtyard areas were beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
It was cold the days we were there and the staff was slow in turning on the heat in the room.
Confort, the location and the service
Clean. Comfortable. Very well maintained. Helpful staff. Airport pick up and return included in the hotel package. WiFi and four, internet-connected computers for guest use. An excellent customer service and tour coordinator. The Rumi Punku served as my base for 6 nights as I explored Cusco and the many surrounding sites of interest including, of course, Machu Picchu. Don't miss the City Tour (6 hours) and the Sacred Valley (all day). Start each day with a complimentary breakfast. Give yourself time to get used to the altitude. Have fun. Watch out for those Pisco Sours. Grilled medallions of alpaca in mushroom sauce, yes!
Nothing to dislike,
The staff was great and very attentive.
The rooms were cold during the day, but at night they were warm.
