I recently stayed at this bed and breakfast for four days. I was very satisfied with the owner's pleasant customer service and personable experience. The owner, Itala, picked us up from the airport and took us to her place. Once we arrived to the B&B, we got a beautiful, spacious, and very clean room. Itala provided towels and extra covers for the cold weather as well. The breakfast was delicious and kept us going till dinner. Her assistant, Roberto kept our room very clean and also helped Itala with breakfast. Itala's close attention to details was beyond excellent. Itala walked us through any questions regarding the city and its culture. She even got out of her way to show us a bit of the city and provided great recommendations of places to eat and to see. She also recommended a great driver (Jose) who took us to Ollantaytambo for the train to Machu Picchu and back to Cusco. Due to his great service, we also hired him to take us to Moray, Salineras and Chincheros for a half a day personal tour. By the way, if you travel to Cusco for certain time of the year were there are a lot of festivities going on expect to deal with some noise throughout the day and night. However, it had nothing to do with the B&B. It was a pleasant stay!
