This hotel is a good 15 minute walk to the Plaza de Armas. However, it is close to Avenida Sol and the large textiles market in Cusco so the location is good. It is close to Qoricancha and allows you to see some of the city outside of the really touristy parts. It also provides great views of the mountainside and the city and is beautiful at night.
That being said, the quality of the rooms are inconsistent. The room I had was fine- clean, spacious etc. However others who were travelling with me had ants, smaller spaces, and one was missing a bed in her room when she first arrived. This hotel is very cold and space heaters are provided, but it seemed like only the rooms that didn't need them, had them. Breakfast is included and provides the usual bread, butter and jelly, but also provides ham and cheese and sometimes cereal and yogurt. At busy hours however, these things are depleted quickly and slow to be replaced. You can come down to no bread in the basket and wait 15 minutes for them to put out more. Other staff is friendly, but not always helpful.
The bathroom did in fact have mold on the ceiling, but the water was hot and the pressure was really good. I had a decent experience and would most likely return to the hotel, but others I was with did not enjoy themselves and would tell you otherwise.
So, take your chances or don't. Room 210 is a safe pick, but I can't make promises for the others.
