- Simple, modern hotel in historic city centre
- Many attractions within walking distance
- Good mid-range budget option
Abittare Hotel is a solid, mid-range choice located within Cusco’s lively historical centre, ideal for those on a budget. It was originally a traditional manor house, though in recent years it has been renovated and updated with some modern touches. This simple yet charming property lies within close proximity to many of the city’s key attractions, with lots of historical buildings and sites of cultural importance within walking distance.
There are 43 rooms set across two floors, including one standard suite and two junior suites. All of them are decorated in a way that’s decidedly contemporary, yet still pays homage to the local Inca culture. Rooms feature air conditioning, as well as a 32” LED TV with cable channels, a desk and complimentary, eco-friendly toiletries. Breakfast is served daily in the designated breakfast room and guests can rely on nearby cafes, bars and restaurants for lunch, dinner and drinks later in the day.
The hotel is mere steps from some important Cusco landmarks. Just opposite is the remarkably well preserved Iglesia de Santo Domingo and the Qorikancha, widely believed to have been one of the most important temples in the Inca empire. A few blocks away is the Plaza de Armas, a central square and popular gathering spot; this is a particularly vibrant part of the city and is known for its collection of colourful flowers, not to mention its many eateries. The hotel is just 10 minutes away from the airport and within reach of many cultural tours, trips and excursions both in Cusco and the wider area which includes the stunning Sacred Valley and the world-renowned Machu Picchu archaeological site.
Families are welcome, although parents should note that are no particular amenities or services tailored to children. However, there is plenty for all age groups to do both in Cusco and the surrounding region.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
