We stayed here for 4 nights, then did the Inka trail, came back for a night, then stayed at the skylodge and back here for one final night, so 6 nights total. Each night we had a different room and each night we could hear people in the hallway, people in the next room, people in the street and people... More

This hotel is on the Plaza de Armes directly across from the Cathedral. We had a stunning view from one of the balcony suites. We saw 2 parades in the 3 days we stayed. The traffic runs all night, (beep, beep), and the revelers in the square can be noisy, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The... More

Location could not be better right in the heart of Cusco in the main square, looking at the cathedral via reception doors. Staff despite not always being fluent in English was really helpful or at least tried to. Bed very comfortable and great sheets, slept like a baby. Got free water at the welcome. Staff helped me and my friend... More

This is a nice hotel very convenient to the Plaza de Armas in Cusco. The rooms are small but comfortable. The rooms were clean and were well appointed. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty. Great coffee! The staff was helpful and it was nice to have coca tea available in the lobby.

The best thing is the location and the staff. They are really very helpful and nice.Breakfast is good. The shower doesn't have much water pressure, but It's not a real problem. The bedrooms are a bit small.

The hotel was small and nice. This is not a luxury hotel but it is a nice, comfortable spot and it is perfectly located in Cusco's main square. The staff was very friendly and they were always ready to help. We had lots of mate available during the day. The breakfast is fine but it isn't spectacular, but as I... More

We were given the huge front suite - a massive bedroom/sitting room and a huge bathroom. Very comfortable and convenient. Our first view from the balcony across to the cathedral was at night, so we dropped our bags and went straight out into the Plaza de Armas to look around. There were people everywhere and the atmosphere was lovely. Next... More

Good: location can't be beat, terrific staff, nice breakfast Bad: Towels feel like sand paper, rooms are cold (they have space heaters, now I know why) and wifi stinks Overall: a better than average cheap place that will save you from twice the price elsewhere.
