We spent an unplanned night at the hotel, having arrived in Cusco sooner than planned. We left some money in the hotel room safe, in order not to carry around all our valuables. The money was counted beforehand. The next morning, before the check out, much to our disbelief and disappointment, we realised that some of the money was actually missing from the safe. Someone thought we wouldn't realise it, but as it was only our third night in Peru and we are very particular with our money, we knew straight away how much was taken and even in which notes. I confronted the hotel manager, who of course claimed it was impossible for anyone to use the master key, I didn't expect any other response. I was going to call the police and meet with the owners, but due to time constraints my wife convinced me to let it go and we got on with the rest of our trip without further disappointments. Just to make you all aware, do not leave any valuables in the safe. They are not safe!

My friend and I were traveling with our dad's and wanted a place where we could all sleep comfortably. Although this hotel is a five minute taxi ride away from the square and many cab drivers didn't know it, we found it to be perfect for our needs. The beds were comfortable, breakfast was tasty and included in the stay, and tea was always available in the second floor. The staff was the best part though. They made everything so easy for us during our stay and storing our bags while we were trekking. They were always smiling and lending a hand. They were amazing.
Mercedes, the "mama" of the hotel is a lovely person to talk to, and greets you with a lot of warmth. Coca tea was provided and breakfast served from 7-10am, with fresh eggs made to order and fresh pineapple juice. The hotel feels like a house, and the rooms are clean with no significant views. The bathrooms could use an extra towel for the floor though.
The hotel is a 15 min walk to the Plaza del armas, centre of cusco, and a couple of good restaurants and markets very close to the hotel, especially the chifa chinese restaurant which really tasty food. We also checked in late after the Inca trail hike and had no problems with someone answering the door. Staff is very kind and nice and they have a microwave in the kitchen to heat your cup of coffee/tea, food etc.
On Friday night there was some noise outside on the streets adjacent to our rooms, but not too much that we could not sleep. Light sleepers might reconsider a room facing the street. Would definitely recommend this place to stay for groups of friends and families.

"Nice hotel, a bit far from town center and noisy"
We loved our stay here. Staff took great care of us. They helped us with calling a dr. For my son, getting laundry done after a week in the Amazons, ordering food and anything else we needed in our 5 days stay. Rooms are comfortable and clean. I have to say that there is a lot of noise. Also far from Plaza De Armas (5 min cab ride for s/.5. ).
The Inkas Inn is a surpising little outpost in the quiet suburbs of Cusco that is a sweet little gem and a bargain. Just a short, cheap taxi ride from the center, the airport, and the rail/bus stations if you are headed to Maccu Piccu from here.
The Inn is in surprising good condition. Breakfast is some barebones bread and coffee, but sufficient to get a start. The staff was very nice and helpful with any questions (although I don't know if they are English-speaking; I happen to speak fluent Spanish, so the issue didn't come up).
If you don't feel the need to stay in the center and near the action, the Inkas is a perfect place to stay. A complimentary pot of mate tea upon arrival was another nice touch. Oh, the wi-fi works well.

A bit out from the center of things, but a great value with clean rooms, and a very friendly and helpful staff. I stayed threes night and was allowed a (very) early check-in and a late check-out without any hassles. There does seem to be a bit of construction going on during the day, and the noise can be a bit much, (though not before nine or ten AM). Honestly this is not the Hotel for you if you are looking for a "Hotel experience"; (no pool, basic services, etc.). It is however an excellent base from which to explore one of the most fascinating areas in the world!

its a very nice hotel, cute, and cozy. the only "issue" i would say is that its a little bit far from downtown Cusco. nevertheless, taxi is extremely cheap (approximately $5), so if you want to get something at walking distance this is not a good option.
The stay was not as bad as it would seem. You are about a 15 minute walk from the center plaza but its a large uphill walk. The hotel is small but similar to others. The staff know the distance makes it hurt to attract guests so they work twice as hard to help with anything they can. Downfall was that they do their own handyman work like most in Cusco and we lost hot water for two days and cable for a night. Overall though i would stay here again because of the staff alone!
