Our party of four stayed here for ten days and couldn't have been more satisfied. Staff were helpful and attentive, breakfast was good and served promptly, showers were hot, beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect for exploring the city. They stored our bags for the two days we went to Machu Picchu. The 45 steps can be daunting...

We stayed in this hotel for over a week when we lost our Visa and had to wait until a new one arrived. After some of the hotels we stayed in through South America we were happy to wait in such a friendly, comfortable place. The staff are all very friendly and speak excellent English. The breakfasts were good, the...

I found this place through the recommendation of a friend. Wonderful little inn with charm. Friendly staff. Free airport pick up! My room was great, not your cookie cutter hotel room. Breakfast was perfect and served in a room overlooking the mountains. Fresh squeezed OJ and fresh made blueberry jam. EXCELLENT value!!!

I stayed here with my partner and two friends on our month long trip through Peru. This by far stood out as the most memorable of places we stayed at. The architecture of the hotel is really different and If you are expecting your normal mini fridge and flat screen style hotel look elsewhere. If you are looking to immerse...
