Located right on Plaza de Armas square, there are all sorts of shops and restaurants just a few steps from the hotel which comes out very handy, since the altitude difficults the walk displacement in the first days. Clean room, good breakfast, 24h reception. Very neat. The only thing I did not like at the room I stayed in was... More

We stayed here one night before our Inca trail trek and one night after out trek. We were so impressed with the quality of the rooms, the breakfast and amenities! It is literally overlooking the Plaza and we managed to have breakfast on the balcony. After travelling through Bolivia and eating stale bread and jam for breakfast every morning it... More

We stayed a total of four nights in this hotel right on the main square of Cusco. The rooms were good sized, the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the restaurant and breakfast were terrific.

This place is in an ideal spot right amongst the square. It can be a little noisy at night but it didn't bother me too much. It's not really a family place though. Rooms are clean and tidy. Service is good. Overall good value. I would book tours through Viator rather than the locals- I have booked many through Viator... More

Perhaps the best location of any hotel in Cusco, right on the Plaza de Armas. Even better the cafe where you have breakfast and can take drinks or meals throughout the day, has a balcony looking over the square. Particularly interesting on Sundays as you can watch the Sunday morning festivities and the people assembling for mass. The reception staff... More

Probably the nicest hotel we stayed at in Peru. Very comfortable bed and decent breakfast. The coffee-shop/breakfast room is on the second floor and afford great views of the square and serves decent coffee. Front desk staff excellent – helped us when we need assistance with the altitude sickness. Good WiFi. Position on the square is first rate and except... More

Stayed here with a friend in twin room that faced the street Ave del Sol. The room is well laid out but small for two people. The side that faced the street was noisy. The staff were very helpful and the location was perfect to see the city, the staff arranged a wonderful taxi driver to take me to Chinceros.... More

The hotel is well located on the main touristy square of Cusco, and the lobby is nice. The bedroom are very small, the bathroom is very small you can't open the window since there is huge traffice all around it's modern and clean but basically, there are much nicer places to stay in town.

Been here a week and it seems as if every time I'm in the plaza there are bands and dancers. Does not hurt that Cuzco has the best looking motorcycle cops in the world and they take turns directing traffic in the plaza. Never heard of any pick pockets in the plaza either.
