Tierra Viva Saphi or Plaza? Please help me decide

I'm looking at both Tierra Viva Saphi and Tierra Viva Plaza for three nights (two nights pre- and one night post-Inca Trail hike). They both look great! Can anyone provide some guidance on the pros and cons of each one to help me decide? Thanks!

Also-- I'm considering Rumi Punku. Is this a better choice? Thanks!

We stayed at the Saphi and it is quite nice, as the reviews on TA detail. I liked it, and while it is a short, safe walk to the square the block it is on is a little bit funky : many buildings under construction/ not is use.

I can't compare the two, but like the previous poster, we stayed at Saphi and liked it. I wrote a review. No problems walking back and forth to the main square. It's not a very busy block but also not too deserted. But we're also not late night people so were back at the room by 9:00 at latest each day.

The hotel itself was fine. Nice breakfast. Comfy rooms. Very helpful staff. They arranged a couple taxis for us. Basic stuff, I know, but it all worked out just fine.

You might also want to consider their newest addition, Tierra Viva Cusco Centro

We stayed there recently and it was great - fantastic free breakfast, free bottled water, room heating, close to the plaza, and probably cheaper than the other two Tierras
