This first-hand evaluation is exactly what we do here at Peru for Less to ensure a top-notch experience. For this, we are elated to share one of our most adored hotels in Cusco: Casa San Blas Boutique:
Where is it located?
Casa San Blas Boutique was the first boutique hotel in Cusco, and is a true treasure in this legendary city. Tucked in the historic San Blas area, the hotel is only a 6 minute walk to the main plaza. The charming 3 star retreat reflects not only the art of the Andes, but the wisdom that comes with it.
Rooms and Amenities
Each of the 18 rooms are super comfortable, and come complete with a different teaching from the Quechua tradition. For example, one room beholds the theme of the Chaska, or star, which teaches the value of self-esteem.
All rooms are equipped with private bathrooms with hot water, cozy beds, rustic handmade furniture, blackout curtains, and reverse osmosis purified water free of charge.
The suites, located on the upper level, have a lounge area, kitchenette, and direct access to the terrace with twinkling city vistas. In addition, the senior suite extends a jacuzzi and postcard views from its private balcony.
Services and Staff
On your free time, you can relax in the endearing stone-lined courtyard or schedule a relaxing massage. If you are hungry, you can head over to the onsite Tika Bistro for a nurturing meal and handcrafted beverage. Also, every morning Tika boasts an energizing breakfast spread of fruits, cheeses, cold meats, eggs, bread, and beverages.
The cherry on top of this hotel is the warm and compassionate staff. They are always there for you, and happy to connect and assist in any way possible.

It is the kind of place that you keep in your heart for years, even a lifetime. Not only do our clients love it, we do too! And visit every chance we get.
