The Perfect and last Stay

Posted Feb 4, 2017 on Hotels
The perfect oasis. The owners were perfect hosts and made us feel like family friends, not hotel guests. Staying there at Christmas was magical with beautiful decorations at the breakfast table and around the property. Can't recommend it more highly. Alas, ours was the last stay!

No Place Like Home!

Posted Oct 4, 2016
Pros: I liked that the property was safe and had room for our kids to run. A very family friendly place!
Cons: You can always find things to improve, but here they were very minor things that did not detract from our visit.
Location: There is poverty in Cusco and not much thought to city planning. Development has been chaotic and unchecked in the immediate area. Always felt safe,
We had a great stay here! It is outside the main tourist hub, but only a 10 minute $5 taxi ride away. Safe neighborhood. The owners, CiCi and Dorris, are amazingly warm and gracious people. They really took care of my family and me: oxygen for altitude sickness, great recommendations for places to eat and see, and they can set you up with trustworthy drivers.

Peaceful hotel, great service

Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed two nights at the Garden House and had a wonderful time. The service was excellent and the staff really cared about making our experience in Cuzco the best. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, the quiet (it's tucked away in a residential neighborhood), and the sunny patio. The breakfast was good, and included fruit, eggs, guacamole, bread, coffee, tea, and cereal. They also provide free transportation to and from the airport. The room was clean and spacious. They upgraded us for free to a suite because there was a room available. It can get chilly at night, but they provided a heater. The only downside is that it's about a 20-30 minute drive to the downtown, but we enjoyed being away from the hubbub. We would definitely stay here again.

Too expensive and too far from downtown Cusco

Posted Apr 16, 2014
We were a family of four and staid in two interconnecting rooms. The hotel staff was very helpful but this could not compensate for the distance to downtown Cusco. Also, while Cusco is expensive, the price was too high for what we got.

Peaceful, beautiful Hotel

Posted Jun 19, 2013
Pros: everything!
Cons: It's perfect
This hotel is a little off the beaten path. It's a 15 min cab ride to the main plaza. That said, it is one of the loveliest places we've stayed in a long time. I recommend it highly. The sisters, Doris and Ceci were both lovely and took great care of us. The room was large (really a suite), clean and comfortable. We had an issue with PeruRail and Ceci helped us figure it out. Doris took us in to town with her on the first day, and showed us where to go to eat and shop. They even gave us a cell phone programmed with the hotel number, so we could call when we wanted them to send a cab for us. A great place to stay!

Our stay at The Garden House couldn't of been any more perfect. The House itself is beautiful, big, homey, comfortable and clean. The rooms are very generous in size and the gardens impeccable. Breakfast was great but most of all the service went beyond any of our expectations. Ceceilia and her sister Dorris provided the most heartwarming service - when I fell ill they did everything they could to help and in general were incredibly helpful booking us last minute tours, calling restaurants for bookings and providing us with a local mobile so that any question (or taxi service) can be answered at any time. The location is slightly out of the city centre but is only a $4US taxi fare one way so in my opinion was more than reasonable in relation to the comfort and service provided. Definitely recommend.

Perfect hidden retreat in a busy city

Posted May 12, 2012
Perfect hidden retreat in a busy city. The hosts welcomed us with open arms after a very long trek along the Inca Trail! Exhausted, starving and needing a shower badly, the owner went out of her way to make us grilled cheeses so we didn't have to go to bed hungry. In the morning our breakfast was perfect! The owner called us a cab and suggested places to hang in Cusco before flying back to the states. A great place to stay we were sad we had to leave so soon! But we will be back!

The only place to stay in Cusco!

Posted Dec 20, 2011
I cannot recommend the Garden House more highly. Doris and Cecilia were wonderful hosts, the house is beautiful, the rooms well equipped, the beds and pillows amazing, the breakfast indulgent. Their restaurant recommendations were also spot on!
