This is a really nice hotel, probably more like 3.5 stars than 3. I stayed here as part of a group booking, both to and from Aguas Calientes/Macchu Picchu. Very comfortable and stylish, well appointed great spacious rooms. Nice lobby area, with large comfy chairs, and coca tea readily on hand. Very nice downstairs dining area - I also was able to buy water there out of hours. Fairly easy walking distance to Plaza de Armas and many Cusco attractions, through the old cobbled streets. Street facing rooms can be quite noisy in the mornings, I suggest avoiding these if possible, or bringing earplugs.
Great and polite service, and a generally well organized place - baggage that was left here during the trip to Macchu Picchu was actually all placed in the correct rooms on the return of our group. Internet access was a bit flaky, with only one of two public access computers working during my stay, wireless only worked in the lobby and restaurant.
As a minor downside, if you want to use a phone card from your room, all calls have to be put through from reception. Also they do not permit dialing of reverse charge/trunk calls. A bit bizarre perhaps?! Ok, this is a provincial (but touristic) area of South America, but this is only the place where I have run into this issue! The rest of the hotel is quite modern.
