Stays at this hotel bookended our Christmas visit to Machu Picchu. It is an outstanding property, steeped in history, located exactly where you want to be in Cusco. There is so much positive about this property, but the highlights include a world class breakfast buffet, a beautiful lobby and public area, helpufl and courteous staff. We stayed in two different rooms and they were both larger ones, suites in fact, almost too big! A short walk to the square, cathedrals, Inca walls, etc.
This is an expensive place, our stays were over 550 USD per night. So value is not what you come here for, and not what we were looking for. It is class, and I would go back in an instant assuming budget continued to not be a real concern.
I have posted a picture of the entrance from a nice little square in front.
