The Review

Intimate and removed — but just two blocks off Cusco’s Plaza de Armas — Andean Wings combines an off-the-beaten-path vibe with top Peruvian architecture and charming style.

The colonial stucco edifice survived a devastating 1950 earthquake and went through multiple incarnations before becoming a boutique property in the 1990s. The inn is so tucked away that many locals have never even heard of it, but it’s close to all the action on the main plaza.

The hotel’s 16 rooms are quirky and fun, decorated with Incan weavings, gold-framed mirrors, folk paintings and chandeliers, and some have great views of the red-tiled rooftops of the ancient city. {“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/10263/pgal-81438-1300399828-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The living room in Purple Haze — perfect for recounting the day — lives up to its name.”}

I booked a Reiki energy work session through the hotel’s Six Pumas Holistic Spa, and the tranquility of the session — set appropriately to Andean flute music in a candlelit room — helped me adjust as well. Afterward, I felt acclimatized… I had indeed entered a new Incan state of mind.

Downstairs, the hotel’s Mandela Restaurant & Bar inhabits a colonial patio more than 350 years old, framed by archways. There you’ll dine on dishes made from fresh local ingredients, and you can even take private classes with the chefs if you want to recreate the cuisine when you get home. Top it all off with a pisco sour in the cozy bar/lounge, next to a fireplace and contemporary local artwork. This small hotel doesn’t have the slickness of Cusco’s larger properties, but that’s part of its Peruvian charm.

It is a good place like an oldest house with a lot of paints... The services are amazing, the bar tender is a good guy,the receptionist is always to serve, all my experience was incredible and my room was very comfortable, the only thing to improve is the wifi signal that is low on some places, but definitely I'll recommend this hotel

staff is great

Stayed here two nights and the experience was fantastic. Everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating. The interior courtyard is like an oasis from the hustle and noise of Cusco. Hotel is walking distance to the main square. Rooms are comfortable and unique. We had lunch here upon our arrival and the food was outstanding. Try the club sandwich- you will not be disappointed!

Excellent boutique hotel!

We stayed in the Purple Haze suite for 4 nights, which had way more space than we needed, though we never really used the ground floor. We also spent one night in the Mary suite which was even more opulent!

The staff really made the stay; the service was impeccable, and we loved our breakfasts hanging out with Martin (baby alpaca).

We were doing a multi-day trek, and they happily stored our bags and delivered them to our new room without being asked. I couldn't have been happier.

The hotel is only a couple of blocks from Plaza de Armas, so the location can't be beat. Highly recommended!
