The INKA WASI is located in the famous colonial quarter of San Blas in the historical centre of Cusco. The presence in the apartment of original Inca walls (living room and bedroom) from the early period (XIII century), the quality of the design and the details put the apartment in a superior category
Perfect place for couples, families (possibility of extra beds) and business travellers
IMPORTANT: with an extra charge is possible to order a breakfast (served on the table of your apartment)
Inka Wasi means Inka house in quechua, the language of the Inkas. This apartment tries to reflect and use many essential elements of the ancient Inca culture, a civilization that ruled the Cusco Valley area and constructed many amazing buildings.
A beautiful Inca image, taken from a 16th century chronicle written by Huamán Poma de Ayala, is carved above the entrance door of the apartment and introduces us to the Inca world of Cusco.
An original Inca wall dating from the 13th century imposes its presence throughout the whole apartment. There is a spacious table for 6 people decorated with ancient geometrical patterns reminiscent of the old Cusco pottery style. In fact, some pieces of ceramics are displayed on the table next to the sofa. These original artefacts were found during the initial excavations preceding the construction of the new building.
The chimney is made of mud bricks and as it is leaning on the Inca Wall one has the impression of being in an original Inca home.
A huge trapezoidal window connects the table to a fully equipped kitchen.
The upstairs room also houses an original Inca Wall that gives a special atmosphere to the place. Above the end of the bed there are some geometrical decorations made of copper that perfectly match with the extra-large bed (1,70 m x 2,0 m) and the bedcover displaying typically vivid Andean colours. In the bedroom we can also find a wardrobe, a chest of drawers, an extra sofa and a second TV (there is one in the living room as well). In the bedroom a door directly leads to the patio of our hotel.

THE COLONIAL QUARTER OF SAN BLAS
At the moment, the San Blas district is known as being the tourist area of Cusco as such. Comparative to the historical centre that borders it, San Blas is on a hill, which offers gorgeous views over the ancient Inca capital.
It unfolds around a beautiful colonial church, whose renowned pulpit, made of hand-carved cedar wood, is regarded as one of Peru’s most important works of artistic carpentry, if not of the entire continent. San Blas is the craftsman and artistic quarter in which you can find exhibitions by young talent, who exist next to the big names that are locally famous.
In the surrounding area you can find a large number of hotels and hostels as well as restaurants, cafés and pubs, and in such density that San Blas has been able to develop its own nightlife.
The quarter preserves the warmth of the narrow, cobbled lanes, the houses roofed with typical stones from Cusco and their antique gates, Spanish atriums and pretty balconies.
Our Inka Wasi Boutique Apartment is located in a quiet pedestrian street that enjoys a special tranquillity to our place.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW that our building is not reachable by car and that is necessary to walk a flight of stairs before getting to the place. We ask to the people that can see this point as a problem to take it into consideration and contact us if they want more information about this aspect.
