Two blocks away from the main plaza in the hearth of the ancient district of San Blas. Colonial-style house with gardens and the best views of the city. Friendly and professional staff, confortable rooms and yummy included breakfast.

Great location, only a short walk to the main square. Some nice eateries around the hotel too - especially away from the main square. Rooms were all good. I stayed there on two occasions, once before the Inca trail, and then when I returned. First time was all good, and on the first floor. Second time, my room had poor Wi-fi which was annoying. This was on the ground floor. Breakfast. Lovely. Staff. All friendly. I think many places do this, however was good to know I could leave my backpack with them whilst I went on a 4day trek.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in our travels to Peru. This is one of our favorite places to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful with some offering little upstairs breakfast nooks. The breakfast is great and they keep the coco tea constantly in stock which helps with the altitude. The hotel is conveniently located near the main Plaza de Armas and there are some great restaurants nearby to try like Pacha Papa and Jack's Bar. The garden at the hotel is beautiful and gets its regular visits of humming birds. The only thing is occassionally the hot water can run out or be sporadic from hot to cold but that's hardly an issue for us as we are to busy enjoying the sights, sounds and flavors.

Of all the hostels I've been this one in particular has a completely different vibe. Even thought my friends and I stayed for one night, we had a great experience. I looked everywhere and I wished I had brought with me my favorite book. The front desk boy was very helpful and charismatic when we arrived at the door at 2 Am. The buffet breakfast was really good. Everything was nice, clean and BEAUTIFUL.

Nice location and really clean and comfortable, the shower and bathroom could be better but its acceptable, would use it again and the buffet style breakfast was very good with fresh fruit offered and coca tea for the altitude

The location of this hotel is amazing. Sadly the rooms are lacking in basic amenities such as clothes hooks and hangers as well as bathroom shelves and complimentary water for guests. The breakfast is warmed over and under covers although there is a kitchen where a hot breakfast could be served up to order. This hotel needs a makeover.
