"El Triunfo Hostal Cusco" is located in the center of Cusco's tourist spots, and it is nice to be able to get to the sightseeing spots on foot. We decided to stay in this hotel because the price was reasonable and the good reviews. In addition, Wi-Fi was also equipped, so you can use the internet freely. Sometimes the wifi became slow, but it was not a problem for me.There was 12 stone, Plaza de Armas, Santo Domingo Church, Cathedral and San Pelo market was within walking distance, and there were also many restaurants and souvenir shops in the surrounding area. I will show you What it was like staying at this hotel.

Check the exterior and entrance of the hotel, front desk!

There were many similar looking buildings and the hotel entrance was small, so it may be a bit difficult to find. If you go to the right street number can get there.

The entrance looks like a gallery, and there is a lobby if you climbed the stairs.

There was always one staff at the front desk and we could easily check in because the staff spoke English.

The lobby is small but there is also a sofa.

There was no elevator in this hotel, but it seemed like it was a one story hotel, so we only used the staircase from the entrance to the front desk.

The state of the guest room stayed

Rooms were located on the same floor as the lobby.

The room was small, but clean. Wi-Fi could be used in the room with no problem. It gets pretty cool at night so I was afraid that I will get cold, but since there was a heater and blankets prepared in the closet I did not get cold.

Our room was right next to the front desk so I could here some noise, but it did not bother me too much.  

There was a small TV and a table in the room.


The bathroom was small but clean, and the blue tile were cute.

You are not allowed to flush toilet paper down the toilet. Instead, you throw the used toilet paper into the trash can. There is a toilet which you can flush the toilet paper down the toilet next to the front desk, so if you do not like to throw used toilet paper in the trash can, you can use the toilet there.  

The water pressure and temperature of the shower was just right.

There was one bath towel for each person, but no face towel. Amenities only included shampoo, conditioner and soap, so other things need to be brought on your own.

Closet and safety box

The closet was small, but there were four hangers.

There was a blanket installed. There was no place to dry the towel, so I hung it on a hanger to dried it.

Safety boxes can be used for small things.

View from the room

There was no terrace. I was only able to see other houses around the hotel.

Breakfast at the hotel

There was no restaurant, but there was a rooms where they serve breakfast.

It was a simple buffet style breakfast.

There was also coffee and tea.

Around the hotel

The famous 12 stone is just a short walk from the hotel.

Plaza de Armas is also right near the hotel. There were plenty of restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and sightseeing spots at a walking distance from the hotel, so it was a very convenient location. The road in front of the hotel is narrow, but there were many cars passing through.


It is approximately 20 minutes by taxi from the airport. It costs about 10 sol (price depends on taxi so we negotiate). Since the hotel is located in the center of the tourist destinations, and there are many restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and so on. The area is safe, but there are many pickpockets. There was no problem with shopping and access to the destination at all. Because I got a map from the hotel lobby, I was able to get to places by looking at the map. I recommend buying souvenirs at the Sanpe Delro Market, because it was cheap.

Staff and customer base

All the staffs were kind and warm, and answered our questions patiently. They taught me many things. I was able to speak English with them, so there were no inconveniences. I did not see any families or children. I think that were were only a small number of adults and individual travelers.


I was only staying at this hotel to sleep, and I was happy with my stay, but if you are planning to stay longer, I recommend staying at a different hotel. There were not many rooms, the halls were narrow, and there are no elevators so it may be inconvenient if you have a lot of luggage. The amenities only included minimum things, so it may be hard for people staying for a long time. However, the location is very nice and there are plenty of places to go see and shop around. The room was also very clean, and the service of the staffs were very good, so we are very happy with this hotel.
