Before we booked our stay here in Cusco, we read many reviews. We are pretty good at reading between the lines, and have stayed in many places over the globe. So, we were not expecting U.S. amenities when we booked here. Fine. We were made so welcomed, and treated so kindly, I doubt some of the things we are more used to in the states would have made a difference.
We read about the rooms being cold-yes, central heating is not a normal thing in Peru. Even in the hospital (Regional), there are only a few wards with heat. This is the way of life. If you want heat, you can rent it. We didn't, and were only cold one night--this is their winter, remember. Actually, we were toasty warm in bed--there were plenty of blankets. The room was colder than we are used to, but rather invigorating.
Another thing we read about was the lack of hot water. I believe I found the trick to this--not only here, but again, around much of Peru. Turn the hot water on full blast, and wait a bit--keep checking, and add cold water when needed. When we worked it this way, we had plenty of hot water.
I can't say enough about this place. ALL the employees were exceptional, helpful, friendly and I'd highly recommend Monte Horeb to anyone that doesn't expect a four star hotel. The location is supurb, only 2 blocks from the main plaza.
