My family and I checked into the hotel our first night in Cusco before heading off to Machu Picchu the next morning. The hotel has so much potential. It used to be a monastery that connected to a church. There is apparently still an active order of nuns that oversee an orphanage for girls on the property.
None of the hotel employees could speak English or Spanish that we came into contact with. Only the lady in charge of the place could, and she was very nice. The property was very poorly cared for, but has loads of potential with a little bit of TLC. Maybe the beginning of rainy season had gotten them a little behind on their gardening. Also, internet was not available in the rooms on our side of the hotel.
