From the pickup at the airport to recommendations for dinner to calling taxi's, the staff at this hotel was great! We had a large room with a king bed which overlooked the back garden. The hotel had tea available all day in the sitting area. We absolutely loved the rooftop patio (there was a river across the street).
The staff made us a welcoming Pisco Sour, and when we came back after sightseeing brought us requested snacks and beverages. They had a good breakfast every morning and would make eggs if you asked. We loved the triangular bread they served.
It was a quick taxi ride (4 soles) to town. I liked that it was a quiet neighborhood (no beeping horns all night).
