I recently stayed at Maison Fortaleza from June 22nd to June 26th, 2014, and I couldn't have chosen a much better bed and breakfast for my stay in Cusco. Itala picked us up at the airport and took us to her beautiful place. Our room was very modern and very clean. The bathroom was also new, with hot and great water pressure. The breakfast was excellent with coffee, tea, bread, cheese, ham, jam, eggs, avocado, juice, cereal and fruits. I had contacted Itala before my arrival to Cusco for a safe driver to take us to Ollantaytambo for our trip to Machu Picchu, and she delivered! She provided us with a nice and safe driver (Jose) to pick us up at 4 am, and he was very punctual. We also had tickets for IntI Raymi for Tuesday, and Itala even took us to Sacsayhuaman for the ceremony so that we would not get lost. I also needed a converter, and Itala took time out of her busy schedule to take me around the Plaza de Armas to look for one. Itala has a great wealth of knowledge of Cusco, and she also provided great recommendations of places to see and to eat. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, but this is the first review I have written because of the exceptional service received during my stay at Maison Fortaleza! I don't think I could have received such great service at a much more expensive hotel in Cusco. Merci beaucoup Itala for making such a difference in our stay in Cusco. I strongly recommend Maison Fortaleza to anyone visiting Cusco.
