It was hard for our driver to find but the location is great for toursits walking through the older/historic section of Cusco.
Checking in I was feeling a bit 'under the weather'...they had available coca tea in the lobby (also coca leaves to chew & hold in the side of your mouth). They promptly sent up two hot water bottles to the room for my comfort--very nice touch! We also ordered room service for dinner that night and they 'rustled up some chicken soup' for me that was good and hardy fare.
There was a bit of a problem with hot water in the shower...my husband seemed to choose the wrong times (most popular time?) and the last morning only got a luke warm shower. I waited about an hour (we didn't have anything scheduled that morning) and only used the hot water tap and had a nice temperatured shower.
This was one of the FEW hotels in Peru that included a hairdryer as 'standard equipment'.
The normal checkout is 10 AM but on the day we left we were being picked up at 4, so they did allow us a bit later check out time, which was nice. They also allowed us secured storage of our luggage until pickup time.
The breakfast buffet had a variety of fruits and bread with cheese and 'ham' slices. The juices were particularly good and varied. (It would have been nice to have a label to know what kind they were.) The waitress also came by to ask if you wanted an omelet or scrabled or fried eggs.
Everyone was welcoming and professional.
