Los Apus Hotel & Mirador Cusco Reviews
Affordable and excellent location in Cusco Sep 21, 2013
The Hotel and Mirador Los Apus is located in the San Blais, district of Cusco and it was to be my home base for my ten day stay in Cusco.
The airport pick up and check-in was seamless and the hotel is close to the street and only twelve steps of real climbing was necessary. I appreciated this very quickly as Cusco has altitude and San Blais is VERY steep.
I had asked for a room with a view on the top floor hoping to be able to look out over the rooftops. The beds were two single beds and a window the opened up over the rooftops. It was quite the treat and super quiet.
The size of the room was 12.4 sq meters or 133 square feet ( not including the bathroom). A private bath had a step in basin shower.There is a phone in the room but the ring volume was so low, that it could not be heard. No problem.... as who would call anyway?
Within minutes after arrival, I hit the bed with altitude sickness....So much for preparation and lost the next 10 hours.
I had been a bit concerned, from reviews, about the quietness of the hotel, but experienced no problems whatsoever.
The staff were very considerate. Buffet breakfast was healthy and eggs were cooked to one's liking.
The property is well run, efficient and relatively modern, but has a very definite local style.
Internet service was spasmodic, it seems there were hotel router problems. Connection was only good in the room 50% of the time.
The restaurant service was not available except for breakfast but many eating establishments are just steps away.
The location is perfect.....when one recognizes the altitude of Cusco. This is very Central...ten minutes from the main square.
Perhaps we rate hotels by whether we would return. So this rates high, because of its quiet nature and location, location, location. At a cost of $49-$52. per night..a steal, in reality.
