The location is superb. A minutes walk to Plaza de Armas and Plaza Regocijo. The first room we were in was on the small side, had the windows opened to the courtyard which means you can hear what was happening down at reception & breakfast area. It had a skylight which made the room bright. We were transferred to a... More

Great central location in the heart of Cusco. Rooms are very small and can be noisy because the hotel is located just next to Plaza de Armas. The staff was extremely helpful. They stored our suitcases while we were on the 5 day Salkantay Trek.

This hotel is just about 10 steps from the Plaza de Armas in one direction and Plaza Regocijo in the other direction, (where the best restaurants are also located), plus, it has 3 tour offices n front in case you want to compare prices. The hotel itself also tours to offer so you can have all in one. They offer... More

We were recommended this Inn from a guide we met at the airport. The location is superb. The breakfast was very good.

Bed very comfortable and very nice showers with hot water. Would... More

First, the breakfast was great! Second, the location is exceptional, you really are in the heart of Cusco. And finally, there was a warm shower - I guess you really do not need much more. But other than that you get what you pay for. The rooms were small, but had all the essentials (including English HBO). If you get... More

Despite the great location, my girlfriend and I didn't have a great experience here. First, after confirming an airport pickup through the hotel, we arrived in Cusco and no one was there waiting for us. After about 20 minutes, we gave up and got a taxi. When we got to the hotel and told them about it, the guy at... More

A cozy room, hot water, and feather douvets on the beds. A beautiful entrance. The breakfast was good enough. The only small issue is that we had two windows in our room, but the windows overlooked the lobby/entrance inside the hotel. This meant that light came into our room late at night as no curtains covered these windows.

“There is a bit more noise if you are on the main floor near the front door and desk. Otherwise rooms are clean with comfortable beds.”

“Wi-Fi only works on the 1st floor lobby, not in rooms. There are no rooms on the 1st floor though. I would say book early to guarantee a spot, however it didn't work for us.”

“We love the one facing the Plaza, you can open the window and check out the people . But beware, Peruvians are already up and running at 5am and it could get a little noisy before you're even ready to open your eyes.”

“Ask for an exterior window--the wooden shutters help keep the noise down at night and they open for good fresh air.”
