More than 5*!!
We stayed 2 nights, went for a trekking for 4 nights and returned to El Tuco to spend 2 more nights. The Hosters Coco and Anna were amazing in making sure that our luggage were safe and that we had all the information needed to start our adventure, including really good advices on how to manage altitute sickness. No stress about Money or check out times, which is so rare!! I recommend El Tuco without reservation and I would repeat the experience again. Thank you for all the support provided and for making us feel at home :)

Feel at home in Cusco :)
We could not have chosen a best place to stay in Cusco. El Tuco Hotel is very well located, clean and really made us feel at home with such warmful environment. The Hosters Coco and Anna are amazing and gave us lots of useful advices to make our travel even more rich. The breakfast is homemade, fresh and really tasty. The hosters do their best to make sure we feel at home. I have no words to describe how grateful I am. Many Thanks Coco and Anna :)

Best stay in Peru
The best place I stayed at during my trip to Peru. The room was basic but all I needed, what made the biggest difference is Coco and his team. He takes time to meet his guests, creates an atmosphere where it’s easy to meet other travelers and share stories. I met a few people I’d like to stay in touch with. He also goes far and beyond to accommodate needs like arrange my laundry service the same day. Also, an ability to use his kitchen was key for me. Thank you Coco, you and your family and team are amazing hosts!!
