The best thing is the location and the staff. They are really very helpful and nice.Breakfast is good. The shower doesn't have much water pressure, but It's not a real problem. The bedrooms are a bit small.

The hotel was small and nice. This is not a luxury hotel but it is a nice, comfortable spot and it is perfectly located in Cusco's main square. The staff was very friendly and they were always ready to help. We had lots of mate available during the day. The breakfast is fine but it isn't spectacular, but as I... More

We were given the huge front suite - a massive bedroom/sitting room and a huge bathroom. Very comfortable and convenient. Our first view from the balcony across to the cathedral was at night, so we dropped our bags and went straight out into the Plaza de Armas to look around. There were people everywhere and the atmosphere was lovely. Next... More

Good: location can't be beat, terrific staff, nice breakfast Bad: Towels feel like sand paper, rooms are cold (they have space heaters, now I know why) and wifi stinks Overall: a better than average cheap place that will save you from twice the price elsewhere.

The hotel sits right in the center of the Plaza de Armas! It's old and a beautiful hotel with all the modern amenities! The balcony is gorgeous! The staff is great! Can't say enough good things! The breakfast was good and came with fresh fruit. If tou have a chance walk around the city and try all the street food... More

The good: a Location b Front office staff held a bag for us that was delivered to the hotel prior to arrival. They were quite friendly. c the poor quality of the hotel room forced us to spend more time in the city itself. which is a good thing. The "not so bad" a breakfast was ok The bad. a... More

I can't rave enough about this hotel. Although it has hostal in the title is actually a hotel and a very good one at that. We had a suite room with a balcony overlooking the main square. It is near all the tour operators and restaurants and shops. Taxis are everywhere and policia in abundance for extra feeling of security.... More

Rating this hotel is difficult because I don't have many other Peruvian hotels to compare it to, and I feel it is unfair to compare it to hotels in the U.S. The location can't be beat, right on the Plaza de Armes. We had a triple room, which we assumed would be 3 single beds but was actually a double... More

The staff is just okay. The rooms are not very comfortable and there's no hot water in the morning. The electric outlets were all broken, it was hard to charge my phone. Therefore I think it's overpriced, and i don't recommend staying there but rather in other hotels in Cusco, for the same price.

The location is superior - best you can think of, second to none! The 2 bed room was just fine and breakfast was okay. However, when visiting a place like Cusco, location should be your first priority and therefore, I would recommend on this hotel
