It’s simples and have a good location to access some main locations in the city
Good position of the property which is 10 minutes walking far from the main square and close to San Blas, where you can find a lot of cozy and nice spots for eating. The staff is kind and the breakfast good.
The room was definitely small: we are not luxury travelers but we barely fit our backpacks! Moreover the room was cold because of the super thin glasses of the windows...one day I had fever but I had to walk around the city because outside was way hotter than inside! Another small thing: every day we had the bed done (even if the first day we asked not to enter but okay, not a big deal) while the towels were every time folded completely wet. We appreciated the kindness but it was not needed to fold also the dirty clothes. Watch out because not all the minivans or buses of the organized tours manage or want to arrive in front of the hostal because of the steep street.
Overal good and good money value
A bit cold, fortunately on request I had a portable heater .
Location is good, little out of the way though, I wouldn't want to walk back alone though. Water is warm. Rooms are clean.
Clean bathroom, great shower (water pressure and it was hot!).
Arranged for airport taxi the night before my departure, told it was taken care of. The next morning, I wandered down at pick up time to find no taxi, and that the hotel staff had to call a taxi that moment. I was told it would 10 minutes, but turned out to be longer than 15-20min, at which point I really needed to leave for the airport. I ended up getting a taxi off the street-- it worked out, but added stress to the end of my stay in Cusco, and didn't reflect very good service. Also, the debit/credit card machine was broken, so I had to wait/return to pay until one staff member was available to go to another hotel to pay (would have paid cash, but I had a lot of trouble with my debit card/getting $ in Peru!).
A stay at Hostal El Auqui places you in the heart of Cusco, within a 10-minute walk of Plaza de Armas and Cusco Cathedral. Featured amenities include express check-in, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
