We stayed here 2 nights as part of an Audley tour.
Probably the best part about it is the proximity to the main square and it seems a safe area to walk around at night.
We got there at around 10.00 pm at night - the so called 24 hr lobby refreshments was closed - this was my only problem with the place. We asked the doorman for instructions to a bar which he gave us (not his fault we got lost!)
On the same road was a traditional restaurant called Ariquepay where we had Guinea Pig (cooked between 2 stones so it looked like road kill!) It had been recommended and was good.
We also used restaurants in the alley behind the cathedral - the Alpaca steaks were good. However, be aware most places close at c.9.00 pm! There is also a couple of little shops on the hotel's road that stay open quite late and sell drinks and snacks.
The hotel was modest but the bed was very comfortable which is all I want.
The breakfast was really nice and plenty of variety.
We also used the roof-top terrace - good views of Misti volcano as the sun goes down and also somewhere pleasant to sit and have a drink before bed.
