My fiancee and I stayed at this hotel before and after hiking the Inca trail. The hotel itself was very easy to find, clean, comfortable, and the staff was friendly. The breakfast is very good and they'll even make eggs made to order if you ask! We love the balcony and garden area, it was a good place to relax with a beer. The staff was super accommodating... they handled our crazy arrival and departure times as well has stored our belongings for us while we hiked the trail. We personally l... Read more

We stayed at Rumi Punku twice during our recent tour of Peru with a group of 15. The rooms are clean and efficient, with ample hot water and reliable wifi (not to be taken for granted in Peru). And the hotel has oxygen for guests, which several of our group needed during our first 24 hours at 11,000 feet above sea level! The staff is patient, courteous, and knowledgeable. The hotel is conveniently located ~2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas and Cusco's splendid Cathedral. Breakfast was ample with ... Read more

Overall, I was very impressed with the service at Rumi Punku in addition to the beautiful atmosphere of the hotel itself. We had no problems with transportation from/to the airport and no issues with our Inca Trek cutting our stay into two. We came back the the hike exhausted to find that they had already put our luggage in our new room, which was perfect. There is ample Coca tea available in the lounge and a great breakfast with eggs to order in addition to fruit, bread, cheese, yogurt, sausage... Read more

My husband, our teenage son, and I stayed at Rumi Punku for 4 nights. When we initially started our search in Cusco for appropriate accommodations for the 3 of us, we found most hotels just offer 2 double beds in one room for 3 people. We prefer at least queen size beds since we are all 6ft tall+ and 2 separate sleeping areas if possible. Rumi Punki was perfect for us since they had 2 superior rooms with king size beds located next door to one another. We were also very happy with how reasonably... Read more

We loved this hotel. It was well located close to Cusco city centre, but not close to be noisy. There was a breakfast bar, and plenty of little places to sit and enjoy the sun. The rooms were small and basic but enough for a touring holiday in Peru.

Rumi Punku is a lovely building, but disorganized. Here's just one example of the chaotic service... One day, when my wife and I got back to our room, we found all our things bagged up in an unsecured hallway. We were mystified and shocked. It turns that the Rumi Punku manager, confused about our changed reservation, thought that we'd abandoned our possessions and gone on a trek, without telling anyone. While the Rumi Punku staff returned our things to our room, the manager refused to apolog... Read more

Beautiful hotel. Rooms are simple but nice. Hot water! We had other hotels in Peru that hot water situation was hit or miss. Typical breakfast offering of fruit eggs bread cereal coffee and tea. They provide bottled water to brush your teeth with. That is a very important detail. We had forgotten to get some on our way there. Great location. Would stay again for sure.

We have a mixed review. First night was good. Some deterioration of service for second & third nights. We were told not to drink the tap water, but bottled water was not re-stocked. At first we had lovely bathrobes, but they disappeared after day 1. Drapes & towels thin. Not enough heat in the room, or the dining room -- & it's winter there. Staff wears coats & scarves. Mostly cold breakfast. Hot (lukewarm) food not restocked after 8 a.m. Their recommended tour guide, David Choque, was n... Read more

To our surprise, we expected this hotel to be our favorite on our journey throughout Peru, but ended up being our only bad hotel experience. The hotel is beautiful and quirky, the staff is friendly, but the rooms are subpar. I paid for a superior double room, but what we got was room 116, which seemed small in size and nothing like the pictures they post online for a superior double. There was a one- to two-inch gap beneath the door that let in noise and cold air. The window faced the fountain p... Read more

I stayed at Rumi Punku for a week. The staff was super helpfull and the location was within walking distance from most places in the historic part of cusco. My room was very clean and I am generally very satisfied with my stay at this hotel.

The hotel is small in size but with all the necessary elements needed to feel comfortable, secure, taken cared of. We were two ladies and they did not fall short in attentions and help. Definitely I recommend this hotel for the lone travelers. It is walking distance from the main streets, shopping, restaurants, and the main square where all the night life action goes on. The whole city is magical and this hotel honors it. The breakfast was delicious daily and made to order. My friend felt sick t... Read more

For a 3 star hotel, rumi punku exceeded expectations, even though on the downside our room is a very tight squeeze and nothing like the pictures on the website. However I did ask for a quieter room and it was at the end of a corridor away from the main terrace (room 206). It was even smaller as they had put a stand alone fridge in the room so there was nowhere to place the second case. However, they did remove the fridge from our room giving us slightly more room. The heating comes on at around ... Read more

I think Rumi Punku greatest strength is its floral decoration. Walking inside the hotel to your room is so lovely. It was quite a contrast to the Hilton Inn where I slept the night before. ‚?¶but I missed a bit its elevator. Another great point is the delicious and varied unlimited breakfast buffet. The broom itself was very nice, comfy, roomy, somewhat elegant. A very nice experience.

The first thing that happened to us in Cuzco was upsetting. When we pulled up to the gracious and quaint Rumi Punku hotel, the taxi driver quickly unloaded our luggage from the trunk and took off. A few moments later, we realized that my bag (with my computer inside) was still in his trunk. We notified the manager and he informed us that the taxi driver was not affiliated with the hotel (as we assumed when we arranged the ride through them), but that he would try to find out who he was.

Good Hotel for the price but the breakfast was really lacking. Location was Ok was a little bit off the main street of Cusco but still in walking distance of key restaurants. Note many restaurants close early in Cusco. Room is very average but good for Cusco.

Stayed for three days in Cusco to acclimate to the altitude before we began the Salkantay. Trek. Our stay at this hotel was just right. It's old and quaint while being very modern and updated with a business center and a good Wi-Fi signal. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. The staff were all courteous and friendly and gave us some great recommendations for meals out. They picked us up from the airport saving us having to navigate the sea of taxis. Highly recommended!

This hotel is centrally located in Cusco around all the main attractions and some great restaurants. We used it as a base point between our visit to Machu Picchu and the Amazon. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. They offered to hold onto our bags when we were leaving for the amazon which didn't even occur to me. Our first night staying we arrived after a long hiking day up Machu Picchu mountain and we were just exhausted and could barely move. They offered to order us peruvian chick... Read more

What a lovely place. We loved our stay here and had a room on the higher floor (no elevators, just steps). We had a nice room and it was quiet. We also had a common sitting area outside which was great in the afternoon with a glass of wine. The neighborhood is close to everything as long as you like to walk a little. The breakfast was great and the staff was super nice and helpful. They also don't mark up the taxis they arrange for you so just ask them to do it if you need one! Overall, a... Read more

We stayed three nights at the Rumi Punku, book-ending our trip to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, and couldn't have been happier. After a few long days and average hotels, we were excited to get back here. The grounds and courtyards are incredible, and the rooms are very spacious. Were were told by two differ the tour guides that this hotel is in an original Inka building, with a very cool Inka doorway. There was a common terrace outside our room on the first leg, but it seemed like our own... Read more
