The building itself is lovely, and our room (a double ensuite) was well furnished and clean, but it was located above a staircase and was very very noisy with people coming and going all night. Breakfast was good and fresh (served rather than buffet), and the location was good, but we checked out early because of the noise-it was impossible... More

Stayed here for the last 3 nights of our trip. The rooms are clean and roomy. The breakfast here was by far the best we had. Fruit and yogurt, with breads, eggs, juice, coffee, or tea. The place is very very clean! I would recommend this place to anyone of our friends coming to cusco.

From the driver they send to pick you up at the airport, to the free coca tea, to the friendly front desk, to the beautiful hotel itself -- this place was great! Cusco is small, but this place manages to be in a central location nonetheless. The driver was really friendly and the ride was pretty cheap! Especially for the... More

Stayed here the last two nights of our trip. Just a little uphill from Plaza de Armas, it's easy to get around on foot. Beautiful garden areas throughout as well as as tucked away deck areas to sit in. The bed was comfortable and room warm at night. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. Free coca tea offered... More

Our family stayed here prior to hiking the Inca Trail. We had 5 rooms, so we basically had the top floor of one side. It was so nice to sit out on the veranda and enjoy the city view and each other's company. The staff here is very friendly and hard working. Someone was always cleaning something. The only downside... More

The staff will welcome you with a free coca tea (unlimited) then you can relax in their beautiful patio with a nice garden. The rooms were clean and well maintained, the breakfast is simple but delicious. Felt very comfortable staying at this hostal.

Very nice setting for this hotel with rooms located around two interior courts. Very clean room, large bathroom, and comfortable beds. Breakfast could improve a little. Located in a beautiful neighborhood with many small restaurants and stores.

Staff very helpful with recommendations on restaurants in the area and things to see. Over a two week period we stayed here twice. They kept our luggage for us when we travelled outside of the city. Rooms are small, basic and clean. Shower was nice, roomy with hot water. Breakfast simple and good. Would recommend as a lay over stay... More

I can not say enough about this hotel!!! I am in love with it! It was a very beautiful place with a couple of patios and gardens.
