Guestbook comments from the manager

Colonial House. was spacious and very comfortable.

Location in the Historic District of Cusco was convenient, within easy walking distance of the large and eclectic San Pedro Central Market , the main square, Plaza de Armas and other tourist sites.

The manager, Benjamin, who lives next door, a math professor and professional musician , was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the rooms nicely decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and the washer/dryer came in handy.

The large woodburning fireplace was a plus on cooler nights.

The available breakfast, including tamales Cusquenas, were tasty.

Maps and plenty of tourist info were provided.

Being in the Historic District, we quickly felt we were part of a vibrant community.

This was a great choice for us and we hope to return.

Spacious, quaint, and in a great location hosted by a very personably and communicative host!

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described - quaint, spacious, and in a super location. The open architecture on two floors was nice. Plenty of room for our family - from sleeping quarters, bathrooms, kitchen and seating areas. We visited in winter, so it was a bit cold at night - but we knew that going in and Marita had nice, warm blankets as well as a fireplace stocked with extra wood.

Marita was a great hostess. Excellent communication. Flexible when we needed it. Addressed any questions we had. Proactive with items. Overall, very responsive to our needs.

Location was excellent. Right around the corner from a modern supermarket as well as the local, gigantic indoor/outdoor market (a must see!). Within 4 easy block of them main tourist areas. Cusco is a great town, super nightlife, friendly people. A must see!

Exceptional in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Colonial House is a lovely and spacious apartment with an ideal location for exploring all that Cusco has to offer. Each room is very private and offers its own charm and personality.

Marita is an amazing hostess -- very warm, welcoming and full of interesting and helpful information. Marita truly makes Colonial House feel like a home away from home.

I highly recommend Colonial House -- you will not be disappointed.

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described. Great location, easy walk to all the main attractions. The supermarket was 2 blocks away, so it was easy to buy water & other supplies. Very comfortable for six people. Plenty of hot water. The house has lots of stairs. As stated in other reviews there is a fair amount of street noise, so light sleepers may want ear plugs.

Maria was easy to work with to book the reservation. Jose, the local contact, arranged airport transfer for us. All was smooth.

Wonderful apartment in Cusco

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed here last summer and we loved our week in Colonial House. Marita was terrific in helping us get situated (transfer from the airport) and had wonderful recommendations for dining and once-in-a-lifetime outings. Because we were meeting with friends, our first week we used the apartment to explore Cusco, it attractions, and the wonderful architectural sites surrounding the city. The kids and we all loved the apartment and its two stylish and comfortable sitting areas, especially the wood burning stove upstairs. A lifesaver in the winter month of July. My husband now loves Peru and we hope to come back soon for more food and hiking and wonderful people.
