Fantastic place!
Great hotel! The rooms are nice; fantastic hot shower; the breakfast was great (freshly cooked eggs, bread, and fruit); super friendly English speaking staff; and a very nice outdoor space to have a snack or drink. I would definitely stay here on a return visit and would totally recommend it to anyone else.

The Iskay was fantastic. Felt like we were in a genuine boutique hotel. Great bed, bedding and hot showers. The staff, particularly Mauricio, was exceptionally attentive to our needs and requests. Breakfasts were good. An on site restaurant is now operating and where we enjoyed a tasty dinner. The views from the hotels veranda are stunning. Compliments to owner Jorge and his staff for making our 5 day stay exceed all expectations.

2/10 Poor

Stay away
We checked in at around 9:30pm. Our room was not ready. Missing towels, shampoo. The linen on the bed was dirty. Had small brown stains. Very dusty underneath the bed. Would not recommend this place at all. For 50 dollars a night there are many other hotels in the area that you can choose

Great service, sent us on an expensive taxi
Service was great. They individually served us in the morning. The only downside is that he had a friend take us back in a taxi to cusco for 150 Soles, which is way too expensive compared to the usual rates, so we felt cheated.

Nice, Scenic Base
This is a great place to stay. The owner was willing to share a lot of knowledge about the area, and provided actual booking help as opposed to just references to his tour partners, The views are great. The only issue was that the wifi really only worked close to the lobby, and I burned through some data before realizing how much it dropped.
