Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Quiet location, away from Cusco's busy center
  • Walking distance to Plaza de Armas
  • Bedrooms with exposed beams and rustic-chic decor
  • Popular restaurant serving fresh, organic, a la carte meals all day
  • Gift shop selling local handmade items
  • Profits help benefit a local children's foundation
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

  • A little far from Qurikancha and attractions in the south
  • Rooms lack exterior windows and there are no TVs
  • Some rooms share bathrooms

Bottom Line

Ninos Hotel Fierro is one of the nicest budget hotels in Cusco. With all profits going to a local children's foundation, it's also a worthwhile place to stay. Located on the edge of the historic center, Ninos is quieter than many of it's competitors. Plaza de Armas is 10 minutes away on foot, though attractions farther south -- like Qurinkancha -- might warrant a cab. The hotel's restaurant is a big plus, and serves a la carte food all day, including breakfast. The 14 rooms are rustically stylish and colorful, and include free Wi-Fi. However, many lack proper windows, there are no TVs, and windows can be limited. If that's a deal-breaker, travelers could consider Loreto Boutique Hotel instead, though it's more centrally located and can be noisier.

Scene

Charming little hotel with colorfully rustic style and personality, aiding a local children's charity

Ninos Hotel Fierro is a great little find with an interesting background. The hotel's name means "children" in English, and the owner is also the founder of a children's charity in the city that provides meals, medical care, and support. All profits go directly to the charity. Guests are encouraged to take a free tour of the charity's center, which is just a block away. Philanthropic leanings aside, there's a lot to like about the property itself. Decor is bright and rustic, and there's a lovely warmth to the place -- the restaurant has a log fire, exposed beams, and large, colorful wall paintings. The small lobby features a small shop stocked with brightly colored locally-made souvenirs, and the courtyard is a pretty spot to kick back. Guests are generally young travelers, as well as some families.

Location

Quiet location away from the busy center, a 10-minute walk to Plaza de Armas

Ninos Hotel Fierro is set on a quiet street away from the busy center of Cusco. There are a few restaurants and shops in the neighborhood, and it's a 10-minute walk to Plaza de Armas. Those who enjoy exploring on foot can get to Qurikancha in 20 minutes, though it's worth noting that the journey back is uphill. It's around 10 minutes by car. It's about the same distance by car to Wanchaq Station, and to the artisan market. The trip to the airport takes around 20 minutes, depending on traffic, and Poroy Station (for Machu Picchu) is a 30-minute drive. 

Rooms

Simple rooms with a smart, rustic finish and storage space, though no TVs

As with the rest of the hotel, rooms are nicely finished and have lots of rustic charm. Each has a colored feature wall with pretty stenciling, plus exposed beams and stylish pendant lights. Configurations include four- and five-bed rooms, though there are options for solo travelers too. Guests can opt for a private or shared bathroom. All rooms have wardrobes or storage and hanging space, plus heaters -- with electric blankets available for an extra fee. It's worth noting that the rooms don't have TVs, though previous guests report that the free WI-Fi connection is good. As with many older hotels here, rooms overlook the central courtyard, and lack exterior windows -- some lack any windows beyond those found in the door. Bathrooms have a bold monochrome theme -- with checkered floors, and wrought-iron accessories. They have showers only, plus towels, though aside from soap, there are no toiletries. 

Features

Restaurant serves a la carte breakfasts and organic meals, gift shop, and free charity tours

Unusually for one of Cusco's small hotels, Ninos Hotel Fierro has a restaurant. It serves an a la carte breakfast, plus a well-received menu of fresh, organic meals during the day -- with vegetarian options available. Meals can be taken in the dining room, or outside in the central courtyard. There's a small gift shop in the reception area, which has a collection of handmade products including mugs painted by the children of the foundation. Guests can also take free tours of the children's charity nearby. Other services include spa treatments and free Wi-Fi.
