This is a great boutique type hotel with a decent amount of rooms. However, the feel is rather quaint with a nice courtyard and neat outdoor seating features around the walkways. The included breakfast is very nice with a great variety of foods from local to international. You can order your eggs however you want and they have a juicing station and even a traditional Peruvian tea cart.
The rooms are all a little unique from each other. I was in a group so I saw a few. They are very nice with great bathrooms. The beds are great. My one warning would be to make sure you get a room away from the main street. The nose is very loud in those rooms (but not the others). After staying awake all night listening to dogs, trucks, and other loud sounds I requested to be moved. This was taken care of right away by the very nice and helpful front desk staff.
Lastly, the location is great. It is about three blocks from the main square and from there you have a lot around you. Really this is a wonderful hotel in a great location.
