A perfect place to spend a few days while acclimatizing to altitude, & exploring Cuzco & the Sacred Valley. We stayed here before & after our trek. The hotel stored our luggage while we were trekking, & it felt very safe to leave our stuff. The hotel is in the interesting neighbourhood of San Blas, which is quiet, yet still close to the center of Cuzco, & one can easily walk to the ruins, the markets, & restaurants. We felt safe walking (to/from the hotel) as a group in the evenings. The streets in San Blas are VERY narrow, but the Alemana can be reached by taxi - so one does not need to drag luggage across cobblestones. The rooms were clean, bright, quiet, & had a space heater. The breakfast (included) room was bright, with a great view looking down on Cuzco. The best part though, was the staff. The front desk staff especially, were amazingly helpful - they made arrangements for us (train, duffel bag transfer, restaurants), offered local advice, spoke excellent English (yet tolerated my attempts to speak Espanol), & were very friendly. Special mention should be made of Catherine, who seemed to anticipate our needs, & made everything easy (my husband says: she was the best hotel clerk he has ever dealt with!!) .... sadly though, I believe she is leaving.
