  Royal Inka Hotel PISAC
by calcaf38

This is an exceedingly pleasant hotel in Pisac. It is affiliated with the Royal Inka Hotels in Cuzco. Royal Inka organizes a good tour, which starts with one night in Pisac. Pisac has some gorgeous ruins and scenery you must not miss. It is also lower than Cuzco, and a good place to spend your first night in the mountains.

I did experience heartbeats and shortened breath while traipsing around the ruins, and by day's end, I had quite a headache. But I slept very well and the following days all was well.

Unique Qualities: Wonderful architecture, like some old hacienda. Friendly staff. Fine amenities. And so quiet!

Address: About 15 minutes walk from the center of town.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Do bring a flashlight. Night falls rather abruptly in the Andes, and the road between the town and the hotel is dark. I had a flashlight, and a little pig decided to escort me too!
Price: US$40-80
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
