out of 4 reviews
Of all the places we stayed, this was my favourite in Peru. Big spacious room. Two closets. Dining table. Nice staff - They gave us 2 extra hours to sleep in. It was quiet. Beds were comfy. The shower was MASSIVE! Cable, internet and breakfast in the morning is included too.
“Nice, reasonable B&B”
We are a family of 4 that stayed at La Posada del Abuelo for 3 nights. We had two rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious. Our plane arrived early on Saturday morning. We were greeted at the airport by a driver with a sign having all our names. We felt safe. We were immediately and graciously served coca tea to help us adjust to the altitude. The service from the staff was fabulous. Rosa Luz was incredibly helpful with assisting us with our sightseeing. While she only speaks Spanish, it wasn't a problem as she would immediately call or bring someone in that could speak English with us. We did speak some Spanish. The breakfast were fair, but a nice start. It was your typical eggs (scrambled), bread, fresh squeezed juice, coffee, cereal (Peruvian), milk, butter and jam. Yes, it is a 15-20 basically flat walk from the Plaza de Armas. The walk is a nice way to see other parts of Cusco. Taxis are readily available and inexpensive. We had no problem with honesty of drivers. Have them show you their tourist or government id to add a sense of safety. We had absolutely no problems with the security and safety of our possessions. La Posada del Abuelo is a great place to stay if you are on a budget. On our after Machu PIcchu stay, we stayed at their sister location, Second Home Cusco. It is more upscale and located in San Blas. Staying at sister hotel was a plus for transferring bag during our Machu PIcchu visit. We highly recommend Second Home Cusco.
“comfy nights sleep.”
just stayed one night, while the room was clean and facilities all ok, decor was a bit tired. Very convenient to the railway station and 10 minute walk to the city centre.
“Sweet dreams in Cusco.”
Rosy was very helpful to us when our son's illness changed our plans. She brought him tea, helped us change all reservations and located another place to stay when we had to extend our stay in Cusco. The rooms are huge, the alpaca blankets cozy and the bed large enough for two people to actually sleep in. It was the most comfortable bed we had in all of Peru. Nights are very quiet, no road noise. The decor needs updating but overall a very comfortable place to stay.
