Illa Hotel, Cusco
Very Good8.0
Decent hotel, value, and location. Clean and safe.
The Illa Hotel is a good, basic option for US travelers. It's in a relatively busy tourist area, just a few blocks (uphill) from the main square, through narrow streets filled with tourist shops, restaurants, and massage parlors. The 24-hour front desk is friendly, relatively helpful, and the rooms are clean. It's not fancy, but it's safe and fairly inexpensive. They have a concierge on call, Maruja, whom we used to book our tours to Cusco City, Machu Picchu, and Sacred Valley. The tours she booked were good but not great. You might want to find a higher-quality tour company. Maruja recommended a private tour guide for Machu Picchu who was great, ask for "Gloria" to be your guide. The bus companies that helped us get there weren't quite as reliable, and the personal driver she arranged to drive us the 90 minutes from the train to the hotel was dangerous and scary. Opt for the safer tour bus. The breakfast buffet is reasonable with a chef available to make egg dishes. Decent WiFi. Our beds were painfully hard, and when we complained about them the front desk moved us to a different room for the rest of the nights without a problem.

Overall ok. Drafty and loud rooms. Mostly nice staff, one man rude. Great breakfast. Something I didnt like is that I paid for a tour through them and on the tour, we didnt see everything that was advertised.

Cheap and lousy hotel, with rude managment
I rarely, rarely write reviews (this may be my second one ever) but the rudeness, dishonesty, and general cheapness of this hotel frustrated me deeply. I was here with a team of colleagues, and we were all puzzled at the high ratings of this hotel (which is why we initially chose it), so it's important to set the record straight about how unpleasant the whole stay here was. First of all, it gets quite cold in Cusco during the winter months, and this hotel offers no heating, only a cheap plug-in space heater which barely gets warm. Secondly, the breakfast is pitiful: only a few slices of bread, some canned fruit, and mushy eggs which sit in a baking tray with a burnt bottom (releasing who knows what types of toxic chemicals into the food). Thirdly, half of their rooms are on the first floor near the lobby, so every morning at 4am you have the whole Macchu Picchu tour crowd checking out and rolling their suitcases all around the courtyard and making tons of noise, so it's impossible to get a good night's sleep. Finally, the internet connection is awful. I was in Cusco for work, and it was really important to have at a least a functioning connection. It barely worked in the lobby area and never worked in my 5th floor room, which was the most expensive room type (suite). Each day I complained but they would give me rude responses like "just restart your computer", which obviously didn't help. Avoid this hotel all costs!

Great hotel, friendly staff, great location. The rooms were lovely and clean. Wifi was a little spotty in our second room, but that wasn't a huge issue for us. We were in Cusco for 3 nights, then went to Machu Picchu for a couple of nights. The hotel kept our extra luggage and had it delivered to our room when we returned. They arranged taxis to and from airport and awesome tour of Valle Sur. Would definitely consider staying here again if I'm ever back in the area.

Out of the four hotels we stayed in during our trip to Peru, Illa was our favorite! We only stayed one night, but wish we had more time here. The property was gorgeous, and the staff took much care in maintaining its beauty. The room was extremely quiet, and breakfast was perfect. The location is within a few minutes walk to Plaza de Armas.
