Very Good 8.0
I want to thank our host Martin for being gracious enough to accommodate our late arrival. he gave us food and water for the road the next morning and even gave us directions for the bus station.

Close to Plaza de Armas
This is a great value place to stay. The host was excellent and spoke good English. You could walk to Plaza de Armas in minutes and Sacsayhuaman was only about a half hour out. I was able to get picked up from the hotel for all the guided tours as well. They do only take cash, but it can be made in USD or Sols so that’s a convenience if you forget to go by a money exchange before checking in. If you want to save money on hotel expenses, give this one a look that is close to most everything in the city!

Great place to stay
This guest house turned out to be better than expected. We originally chose the hotel / guest house because of its proximity to the trekking company we used to hike the Inca Trail. As it turns out, the location is great for seeing most of Cusco Central. We were able to walk everywhere. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful. We at first only booked 3 nights before our trek but before we left we asked Martin if a room would be available after we finished the trek and he said there was. We stayed another night then went on a 5 day Jungle tour. Before leaving, we again asked if there would be availability upon our return and, he said there would be so we stay another 3 nights. Each time we left and came back was like coming home. Martin is very accommodating, packed a lunch each day we went on excursions. He gave recommendations and really took care of us. The place is very clean, comfortable, easy to get to. Close to city center wifi worked just fine for the minimal time we used it. Nice hot showers. 4 days on the Inca Trail, extra day in Aguas Caliente, 5 days in the jungle. We had to do laundry. Our hosts took care of it for a small fee. We would definitely return if possible. Thank you Martin!

Nice guest house
Guest house is just 10 minutes walk from historical Cusco. It was a very pleasant stay with one of the most helpful hosts around. We stayed 2 nights. One before and one after our visit to Machu Picchu. We were allowed to keep our baggage overnight. Cusco's temperature often drops below 10 degrees at night. Our rooms were warm and comfortable. We rested well.

Incredible Oasis
We stayed at La Escala Guest house for 4 nights. Nathgy and her husband Martin were very kind and helpful. They allowed us to leave our luggage in our room when we went to Machu Picchu and when we came back, our room was cleaned and just as we left it. Martin made us breakfast every morning. They were so kind as to let us have an extra breakfast on our first morning there. We arrived by Hop on Hop off bus at 6am and felt very welcome there. I would recommend this Oasis to anyone visiting Cusco. It was near everything that we could walk to.

Helpful, friendly hosts
We stayed five days at La Escala before going to Machu Picchu, and another two days after. Martín and Nathgy made us feel at home, and gave us tons of help with local transportation, area attractions, and connections to Peru Rail (Poroy) and Cusco Airport. Clean and comfortable. You won't go wrong by booking La Escala. We would definitely stay here again.

Friendliness and logistical competence
The accommodations were excellent and the staff was very friendly. Most of all, the owners were competent. As you'll probably be in Cusco as part of a trip to Machu Picchu, you'll want competence when it comes to the potentially difficult logistics of getting there and back. Nathgy is wonderfully good at these logistics.
